A Bow to the New T20 Champions!!!

A Bow to the New T20 Champions!!!
Hard work always pays, it’s the biggest truth. We can also say hard work and good attitude pays; this also seems to be good. My hearty congrats to Pakistan T-20 team for lifting the WC. They showed what they are capable of. They showed what hard work and good attitude can make.
They were not in the greatest mood to start the T20 Tournament. Honestly I didn’t expect Pakistan to win the WC, I never even taught of that. The team hasn’t played lot of international tournament recently and they never had a winning stroke in the matches they played recently. But, they won the WC. Initially in the tournament they faced some serious defeats, but they recovered so quickly. I will say its pure attitude and 100% dedication than anything which, most of the team failed to show in the WC...

India’s early exit in T20 World cup!!!

India’s early exit in T20 World cup:
Team India, the unexpected champions of 2007- T20 world cup, unexpectedly flushed out of theT20- WC contest 2009. It’s is a disappointing story. It was said during IPL 2, IPL is a good ground for Indian Players to express their Talents, to gain Confidence and Spirit. Now the story line moves in different direction. Even in IPL the young players like Yuvraj, Dhoni, Gambir didn’t perform well whereas the big guns like Sachin, Saurav, Kumble proved, they are the master of cricket irrespective of the format and age.....

Are Indian players’ fatigue? I don’t think so. Not only Indian players played in IPL. Many international players, who are a part of IPL, played reasonably well in T20 WC.
So what it could be, Lack of planning, Overconfidence? Or Lack of good captaincy? Or pressure? Or Lack of coordination? There are many more to add in this list. Even before the T20-WC Indian team had a fight with the media, still it follows. Players were not interested in showing their face to the media. So what would be it?

A Bitter Reality

As the dream of most parents I had acquired a degree in
Software Engineering and joined a company based in USA, the
land of braves and opportunity. When I arrived in the USA , it
was as if a dream had come true.

Here at last I was in the place where I want to be. I decided I
would be staying in this country for about Five years in which
time I would have earned enough money to settle down in India .

My father was a government employee and after his retirement,
the only asset he could acquire was a decent one bedroom flat.
I wanted to do some thing more than him. I started feeling
homesick and lonely as the time passed.... I used to call home and

speak to my parents every week using cheap international phone
cards. Two years passed, two years of Burgers at McDonald 's and
pizzas and discos and 2 years watching the foreign exchange
rate getting happy whenever the Rupee value went down.

A man woke up early in order to have his morningdevotion (prayer) in the Lord's house (church).He got dressed, set on his way to the Lord's house (church). On his way to the church, the man fell and his clothes got dirty. He got up, brushed himself up, and headedhome.......

At home, he changed his clothes, and was, again, on his way to the Lord's house. On his way to the church, he fell again and at the same spot! He, again, got up, brushed himself off and headed home. At home he, onceagain, changed his cloths and was on his way to the Lord's house (church).On his way to the church, he met a man holding a lamp. He asked the man of his identity and the man replied "I saw you fall twice on your way to the church, so Ibrought a lamp so I can light your way.
