From YoYo to MoYo - When Gods came begging

I have always considered Mohammed Yousuf as a good batsman, rating him only a shy below Laxman in class, elegance and modesty. Ever since he converted to Islam, his game has raised to a new high, getting better by the day. Today, he is ready to give Ponting a run for the money, to be the top player in the circuit.

Every article about him mentions his faith and his recent conversion to Islam, just as I have. I wonder if his recent run has anything got to do with Allah. Or is it Jesus that is showering his blessings to win MoYo back to Christianity. I think the Gods are fighting for him and it is showing on Yousuf's performance. Nevertheless, I must admit that Yousuf possesses some great quality that you and I don't; that Gods are knocking on his willow every time he walks out.

Now I urge VVS. Laxman who has been brought back to the team as Vice Captain to do the following for India's sake.

1. Grow a beard -atleast a mouche
2. Convert to Islam
3. Get the name changed to VVS Latif
4. Touchbase with MoYo and find out what else he did to get the Gods on the negotiation table.
5. Finally do whatever it takes to save India's pride in South Africa.

If Laxman tastes any success then Tendulkar, Sehwag and Ganguly should be summoned to convert.

Vasanth & Co

Mr. Vasanth insists on sticking his face on every advertisement. Maybe he thinks his ugly face brings trust to the grinders and mixies he sells. Or maybe he wants to take away the dhrishti from his enterprise. Whatever be his excuse, folks I was doing it unintentionally. These nice people who I read and comment regularly, have chosen to display profile images of visitors. All I intended was to display the image in my blog's profile. I hate to vouch everthing I say with my ugly visage. Hope Mr. Vasanth realizes this too. Also the music director S.A. Rajkumar. Good that he is obsolete now and the audio cassette market is down.

Nothing to cheer

Desis who have not yet given up their Desi passport can rest assured that India alienated Iran for a lost cause. The nuclear deal will not see Daylight. The costly moves of sacking Natwar Singh and the transfer of Mani Shankar Iyer by Madam Sonia, Dr. Singh and friends should be regarded futile. The jihadis of Iraq and Afghan will turn to the nearest secular nation to seek revenge when America decides to "cut and run". And those mujahideens will be overwhelmingly aided by the House Majority with little resistance. You think Democrats = Democaracy! You deserve it. By the way if you are the Desi who has already taken the oath of allegiance to Uncle Sam, you will not escape the tax hikes either. Well, it does n't matter to me either ways as I wanted to see Dr. Singh's nose on the ground like "Boys Bharath's".

PS:- Howard Dean and John Kerry should pursue "Stand Up Comedy". So should Bush after 2008. I live in Texas, I had to write this irrespective of my position.

Delhi Ganesh

Delhi Ganesh is the best actor in Tamil Cinema. Followed by Gemini Ganesan. The most over-rated Ganesan is Sivaji. While the other two Ganesans had a hero's profile, Delhi donned only support roles. His entry into the industry was late. His career has spanned over 25 years beginning with Pasi in 1979. He played Munian and made a mark for himself in that Shoba blockbuster. Who can forget his roles since then in movies like Sindhu Bairavi - Gurumurthy , Nayagan - Iyer, MMKR - Mani Iyer and Avvai Shanmugi - Sethurama Iyer. His roles have ranged from a poor rickshaw man to a Bhramin cook and everything in between. Even being cast as a Bhramin in many of his movies, Delhi has shown utmost variety in each outing. He has also taken to Chinna Thirai and is living each of his characters everyday on TV. Whether it is comedy or serious roles, he appears to play them with effortless ease. And that is probably one reason why he goes unnoticed inspite of awesome performances. He has also played villain roles. Although it didn't suit him very well. Today, I enjoyed watching Avvai Shanmugi yet again on Sun TV.

Honeymoon is over

It has been more than a year since Rahul Dravid was elevated as Team India's new bride. The honeymoon seems to be over for the captain ever since the WI ODI series began. Atleast the predecessor was screwed only by the coach. Imagine getting screwed by the mighty West Indians, Aussies and your own teammates simultaneously. It's one thing being a wife, it is a whole new game to be a whore.

Don't get me wrong, Rahul's individual performance seems to have no effect with the additional responsibility. Just that the team could use a better captain. Anyone who can really think, please.

Dilip Vengsarkar is partly right in bringing back Anil Kumble and partly parochial in introducing Wasim Jaffer to the limited edition of the game, this late in his career. He would have done well to name a new captain even if he had shown parochialism and turned to Tendulkar. Obviously this hype is not working and there is hardly enough time before the big event.
