Turns out Ponting was right about his prediction that there would be no need for the third match to decide the finals! Congratulations to the Indian team for putting up such a good show. I really enjoyed watching the win. Needless to say that a win in Australia against arguably the world’s best team is especially joyous. At this moment let us also stop for a moment and remind ourselves that sometime back we were prepared to lynch the Indian team for not performing well. I hope the fans and a bulk of the national media who behaved so badly then are dropping their heads in shame. And a huge applause for Sachin whose last two innings were instrumental in securing our win. Also that Praveen Kumar is quite a find I must say.
I was a little disappointed though with the farewell to Adam Gilchrist . I think a player of his caliber deserved a better send off. Being a mushy emotional kind I would have also liked him to score at least a 50 in his last match. He certainly is one of the greats of International cricket.
Have been unwell the past 10-12 days, down with flu. Cold still not gone completely.
(post 3344) Devika your coconuts seem to be doing the trick.
(3326) Nice limerick Ashu.
(3307) Skotse White Moghuls is indeed a very enjoyable book and gives a great insight into the British presence in India. On American history I would strongly recommend a series called NARRATIVES OF EMPIRE written by Gore Vidal. It is a series of 7 books which are a fictionalized account of American history. Burr, Lincoln, 1876, Empire, Hollywood, Washington D.C., and The Golden Age. An absolutely cracking read.
(2860-2853) Zohaib, I cant make up my mind whether I should be upset with you or not.
(1381) Perdido Manuel I have made a note of your suggestions and very soon I will do the needful.
(2436) Praveer as it turns I was in Delhi on the 2nd and a good part of 3rd. Well all I can say is that you had a close call!
(3591) Did you make that yourself Devendra? Its very good. Did you use charcoal? Or pencil?
Off late what has been really troubling me is the the director’s commentary that I need to record for the TZP DVD. Personally I feel that I have said what I had to through the film. Also, I think that films should be experienced, I shouldn’t need to explain stuff. So what I want to know from y’all is do y’all really want me to do a director’s commentary for the DVD release? Also while we are at it is there something which y’all would especially like in the DVD? I’ve already put in what I think will be great extras, but maybe I’ve missed out something.
