I clicked this photograph a few days back in luchtime outside my office. Look at the blue sky!
It was a good weekend and I hope every soul of the blog world had a fantastic time this Easter and are happy to be back on work after a classy long weekend. Well ‘Happy to return at work’ is a bit gone overboard… LOL…! Well I had a fabulous weekend with some hitches and stuff but it was all just great. Got a pair of cufflinks for me, watched some movies (OKAY not some but many!), played cards after a long time and just wandered out on streets with friends to cool off my head in late nights.
The movies I watched in all these three days are Primeval, Rocky, Rocky II, Rocky III, Rocky IV, Shakalaka Boom Boom, Nishabd and Red. Yeah I know, they are too many but to tell you, once you start with Rocky, there is no turning back! He is the man, he is the fighter. It is not just about boxing; it is about a life of a fighter, his dreams, his hopes and his triumph. I smiled in the first film, was singing in second and dancing in the third. It was fourth which spelled triumph. I am going to watch the rest of the series i.e. Rocky V and Rocky Balboa soon. As the hindi report card comes, Nishabd was a rip off Lolita of Nobokov. Red was the most senseless thriller with no story at all, Shakala boom boom was a film based on music rivals with very weak music score to support.
Okay! Back to life!
Friends! Dehradun and Massoorie are situated in the valley of Himalayas. The place is cold and green. The air starts to grow thin from there if people start to climb on the peaks of the world’s most ancient mountain range.
I thank all my friends here on 360 for their best wishes and I am really hoping to share more stories and videos and photos from the wedding and of the vacations soon.
Now in another blow in the World Cup Cricket 2007, the minnow Bangladesh beat the world number one South Africa on Friday and it was a really GIANT kill for them.
Now for my friends from the US, who do not know a think about this so called gentlemen’s game, a few facts:
1. A cricket team consists of 11 players, 1 extra, 1 coach, 1 manager.
2. After the toss team decide who will bat first.
3. If it is a one day international, each team gets to play 50 overs. An over consists of 6 balls.
4. Now the second team has to score more runs then runs scored by the team batting first to win the match.
5. If it is a test match both the sides bat twice and the game goes on till 5 days and 90 overs a day. It is pretty boring kinds of game and only 12 nations have status as test playing nation.
6. The game is discovered by British but they never won the World Cup ever since it has begun.
1975 : West Indies
1979 : West Indies
1983 : India
1987 : Australia
1991 : Pakistan
1996 : Sri Lanka
1999 : Australia
2003 : Aus
2007 : Going on (My bet is on New Zealand)
For the first time in the history of the game, Team India is out of the tournament from the first round itself. In last world cup (2003) we played the final match against Australia and lost. But at least we gave a fight.
So that���s it!
Have a wonderful day ahead!
