Guys ,Always Keep Your Dignity
Monday At Madisson Square Garden
Last Monday was when WWE Raw returned to Madison Square Garden after nearly two years.Thanks to one of my friends i did manage to get the tickets for this historic event.There are some times in life when you get a flashback.You make a promise to yourself and when that thing comes true it is a truly wonderful feeling.Last Monday i had this flashback when i saw the Undertaker make an appearance at Madison Square garden.For a moment i pictured myself as that 12 year old kid who use to rush back home from school on Monday evenings to watch the wrestling event on TV which started at 5pm.I use to enjoy seeing the Undertaker and Bret Hart and i remember saying to myself , it would be so great if i can watch these great wrestlers live in NY city.Well i will never get a chance to see Bret Hart wrestle since he retired a couple of years back.But watching the Undertaker did get back those old memories.It was indeed a very touching and emotional moment as Madison square garden gave a standing ovation to the undertaker who has indeed been one of the greatest wrestlers in the history of the wwe.It was indeed a special night at Madison square garden and i was indeed very fortunate to be present there.

'Aaj Tak' se 'India TV' tak!!!
“Kal ke sher, aaj dher”
“Sabak sikho maahi”
“kya Dhoni maafi ke layak hai?”
“Team India ,sharm karo”
“Hero bane Zero”
These were the headlines being telecasted on every news channel in India like India TV, star news, zee news, Sahara news, aaj tak and more on. WHY THE HELL? Who the hell is a news reporter to judge a cricketer? And why the hell he tries to dare so without even knowing abcd of cricket? It is much simpler to report such absolutely idiotic and pathetic news, sitting in an air conditioned studio than going in a foreign country and playing on the green ground for our nation. Cricketers are not god; they are also human beings as we are. Agreed, India lost due to their bad play and some inconclusive decision making of the captain... But one must not forget that the captain Dhoni and his knack of decision making has proven to be a key factor in various Indian triumphs since he was made captain for the 1st T20 world cup.
Immediate results were obtained after making him captain of the side and India won the inaugural T20 trophy. Later he was made captain for one day side and India thrashed away the kangaroos on their home soil in the VB series. Also, the world no 2 ranked South Africa were defeated against Indian Tigers. The tradition of winning matches in foreign countries which was set up by India’s most successful captain, the Bengal Tiger “Sourav Ganguly”, was followed by M.S.Dhoni and India started registering series wins one after another, irrespective of the venue. India then went on to win test as well as one day series in Sri Lanka, New Zealand and even Australia. We can’t also forget the dominating 2-0 victory against the kangaroos on our home soil to clinch the prestigious Gavaskar-Border trophy back. Please don’t forget that India hasn’t lost any series till now under Dhoni’s leadership.
So who are we to blame and forgive not only Dhoni but the whole team? Folks, we just can’t rub off these many triumphs by considering just one loss... It is always said that cricket is a religion in India. Then how can one blame his religion? And at the end, victories and defeats are nothing but parts of any game and we can’t expect our boys to win always.
Besides all these things, we Indians are always said to be krrazy for cricket, may it be test cricket, one dayers or T20. But this craziness should not be turned up into idiocy all the way which is seen when we burn statues of cricketers and throw stones on their homes. Because we are the same people who make them heroes when they win any series, even if it is against Bangladesh... We should also accept defeats gracefully as we do when India wins. I am writing this blog when India has already won their fifth series consecutively on West Indian soil.
But the question about absolutely low grade reporting by news channels still remains unanswered. These are the same people who reports hopeless and totally non value adding news such as “ 14 feet ka mahamanav” , “Salman aur Shahrukh ke beech hathapaai”, “Swarg ki seedhi”, “Mrityunjay Baba”... and some amply non-sense stuff like this. The height of totally useless news reporting could be seen on India’s favourite funny bald reporter Rajat Sharma’s India TV where they call some doctor who tells us using a funny plastic or body or some decayed skeleton of Hitler’s era about how autopsy of Michel Johnson was carried out.
These are the people where renowned(?????????) 50 + old cricketing people tell us how Sachin Tendulkar should have played a ball which got him out.
At the end, it is my polite request to every Indian that please don’t take these news reports seriously and do not believe them at all. These are the jokers superior to yesterday’s circus jokers whom you can laugh at, especially India TV (Mrityunjay baba my foot!). But do not change your channel if some news channel is being telecasted. It could serve you a great comic entertainment, even better than “RAKHI KA SWAYANWAR”!!!!!!

DADA NEVER RETIRES FROM OUR HEARTS!
10 Nov 2008..... a bitter day for all the true fans of the Prince of Kolkata Saurav Dada...After not only just facing all the major pressures n calamities in his cricketing career,but also empowering them with extra-ordinary gutsy nature,dada took retirement from his love, his passion ; CRICKET. There are enormous stalwarts in this cricketing world we have come across like the great Don Bradman,Sachin Tendulkar,Brian Lara etc....But nobody,nobody amongst all these greats have gone through such an enthalling career with ample up's n down's like Saurav has.May it be taking over captaincy,defeating Aussies in Indian as well as their home soil, leading India in World cup finale from the front,a bad patch in the career,the infamous chapell controversy,forced exit from cricket, but again getting place in the side with lot of determination and passion to prove something......Hardly anyone not just in cricket,but in any sort of thing can do it as Saurav has done. Why the people are fans of Saurav Ganguly?For his batting skills?For his unbeatable offside shots?For his flamboyant sixers?The answer is 'not just this'.Ordinarily,the man does what he does.But very few men do what they CAN do.Dada is one of those very few people. Saurav Ganguly's comeback was not just getting place into the team,it was a miracle!No ordinary man can have the guts to prove everyone wrong and answer the world,"yes, i have not ended it" in the way as Saurav did. True, we like Saurav for his Guts,Self Respect ,Tit for Tat nature and most importantly his never say die attitude.
Dada is going away from cricket,but he has gifted his patriotism,his fighting spirit in short all his DADAGIRI to indian cricket army.So we can say,dada can go but dadagiri can't...
Yes,we are proud fans of Maharaja.Nevertheless, he is retired from international cricket, but we can't allow him to retire from our hearts,our blood, our sole.
"DADA CAN NEVER RETIRE FROM OUR HEARTS!!!"

Good Bye Maharaj
Well The day has come and gone , 7th November 2008 was the last time saw Sourav Ganguly walk out wearing the India cap.As i got my today and saw the videos on you tube which showed Dada celebrating his last win as an Indian player , my mind went back just a year back when last November around this time Dada had cracked his 1st double hundred , his 1st hundred at Eden gardens and ended with the man of the series award as India beat Pakistan.Last DEC he played his 100th test and was in the form of his life .One year later his enthralling journey has come to an end.But hold on did it really deserve to end right now .Didn't he end his last series averaging more than 50 against the best team in the world.These questions are hard to answer .The thing about saurav has been his up and down journey as a cricketer which has enthralled us all.People like Kumble , Tendulkar appear super human and super men whose feats we can only dream about achieving .Even saurav has been a genius like them , but his journey has been much more enthralling .He has been the rebel who signalled a new India by waving his shirt at lords , the patriot who fought against the invader Greg Chapell to defend India's honour , the genius who played some enchanting knocks.One last memory i have about him is his one day comeback innings against west indies in Feb 2007 when he made 98 which was a truly magical innings.I was watching that match with my grandpa .I still remember my grandpa's beaming face as he watched saurav bat like a magician.That was the last time my grandpa watched a cricket match as he passed away a few weeks later , but his beaming face and sauravs brilliant batting that day have left a lasting impression on me.Thank you Maharajah
