WORLD CHAMPIONS!!!   
Mar,08,2008
 

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.

I like to read ur message all the time.I liked the movie TZP very
much and ur handling of the subject was so sensitive that it was
hard to beleive its ur first attempt i think the stories about ur
ghost directing must be true.I would like u to read the two
volumes of famous writer Yashpal's book JHOOTHA SACH its about
partition and very well written i dont know if its ur type but
since u were in Mangal Pandey i thought u might like it by the
way i loved Mangal Pandey.

hey aamir, belated happy birthday! I was watching ur inteview w/
Kabir bedi on ishare today but there was only an 8 min footage,
can i c the entire one anywhere?? I really liked the music of
the movie TZP especially the lyics as well as the music of --tu
dhoop hai-- a very different, socially relevant film, it does
make u sit up n think again, introspect. My husband really
identified w/ the story of the kid a he had seen first hand few
students w/ the same difficulties in his school. A big applause
for bringing to the fore a immensely sensitive n relevant issue.

Hi Aamir,
I never thought any movie would compell me to write a comment or
I should say compliment on a blog. I like to watch good hindi
movie but am not fan of them.
I am a psychologist and came across so many parents who
unknowingly trying to see thier self in their kids so cant accept
any 'imperfection'.
You have done a excellent job of conveying the eyeopening message
to all the people,
TZP is really an awesome movie from every
angle. I wanted to compliment u eversince i saw that movie but
never knew how to reach u.I have one question ....In tzp, in the
drawing copetition , how did u decide that u were going to draw
that kids picture?
Another of my question is how did u get time to write and answer
all these questions on the blog?
After watching TZp i really wish to meet a man behind a great
movie , but dont know when and how....If u have any plans of
coming to Boston in future do write on ur blog.
best,
Priya
