China is hiring coaches and cricketers from India and Pakistan to teach lakhs of youngsters, cricket. According to their plan, they will come up with a professional cricket team to take part in the Asia Cup Cricket in a couple of years. In another part of the World, called India, Kapil Dev-led Indian Cricket League is on hiring spree. Though they have mostly hired recently retired cricketers, the hunt is on for some present cricketers. For a change off the field cricket is getting more exciting!

Every year so many global surveys come out to label Indians' integrity, honesty and other values. We crib when we are ranked low and we celebrate when our ranking is among the top slots. But do we need to take these surveys as a benchmark of our values? How authentic are these surveys? Are you sure they tested your values before they decided your ranking on integrity scale? Questions and more questions! Sadly we still regard these surveys highly!

Can't stop sympathising with Americans!
First they created and armed a monster called Taliban, which went on to grow as big as Al-Qaeda.
Now Al-Qaeda is multiplying! Bush waged a war to wipe out Bin Laden, but ended up spending billions of dollars.
Now he has one more challenge, to find Zawahiri!
This page was about women's ignorance about bra-size.
According to a study, 9 out of 10 Indian women wear wrong size bra!
I couldn't find a proper picture which is aesthetic too
(And had to keep in mind Mumbai's moral police too!), so went for a stylised illustration.

This is one craze which will never die.
I'm one of those very few people
who don't understand this mania!
But I loved the digital effects of the movie
which made the Harry Potter movies a treat to watch.
I wonder how these kids relate to Harry Potter plots.
And the kids who struggle to pronounce their own name,
talk about tongue twister names in the book with ease!
May be that's the magic of Harry Potter books.
I just wonder where our own fantasy stories,
that our grandma used to tell, are buried!

Everyone is entitled to his/her right to be a stupid. Next time when you say Dr. Shilpa Shetty, you'll certainly feel stupid, thanks to a so called university in UK. Leeds University honoured this shetty gal with an honorary doctorate! Bizarre!
I always believed that honorary doctorate has some honour, may be UK university doesn't think so! We all love to ride on someone's success-wave, but this seems to be the height! I can't see one reason to feel proud being an Indian because of this honour. In fact I feel insulted that the UK University couldn't see a better Indian choice! May be the University wants to attract more Asian students. May be they want to raise some funds through bollywood naach-gaana sometime in the future. May be...
