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.

WEll Aamir , if i can call u by ur first name.anyway ive just
joined ur blog and i must say that i as a fanatic follower of ur
movies and ur work i certainly thnk my opinion on anything
remotely associated to you would be prejudiced but still one
still thinks u know that such kind of taunts and potshots are
best left to SRK & Co who have precious little else to do than
publicizing their awful films .This was a witty repartee if it
was meant to be one.On the other hand gud to finally see u
getting back at the mandarins of our filmdom.Way to go man

I have watched some DVDs with directors commentary. And frankly I
think its suitable only for someone in the movie industry or a
aspiring actor,director or even technician to listen to 2 hours
of directors commentary. But its pretty useless for anyone whos
watching the movie as you said it has to be experianced. But for
others who may be wanted to knwo what a director thinks while
making a movie or directing a particular shot it might be worth
keeping a commentary. So if you do have a commentary itll be nice
for someone who wants to get inside your head. Personally I will
watch the movie without the commentary.

Hi again Aamir,

I have always found the director's commentaries on DVD annoying
and of no use at all. I have never selected this option on all
the DVDs I have watched so far and I agree with you that the film
should be experienced rather then been commentated. It sure takes
the excitement out of the film. my 2 cents worth!

Yes Aamir Sir! A director's commentry is necessary, not for the
audience, but aspiring filmmakers like me. I would cherish it, if
u have it done. I frequently visit the Indian shop(in Sydney,
Australia), just to enquire if the DVD has arrived or
not.....Please don't take away my hardwork by not inserting the
commentary...Thanks '

Sydney, Aussie.

Aamir, have you seen rang de basanti with the director's
commentary? Try watchin the deleted scenes with it.
Hope that changes your mind.

Hey I'm Lagaan box no. 4613, hope TZP dvd is also a firecracker
like the Lagaan special.
