India wins "Revenge Series" against England




India has won 4-0 and is poised to win the 5th One Dayer and whitewash England in the WWB (World Wide Batathlon) also called "cricket". Anyone who happened to watch this series would have found that even deliveries reaching 140 km plus at best hip height and mostly the deliveries were knee height, reaching the wicketkeeper one bounce.
In the earlier series played in England, it was cricket, for the bowlers too had a fair chance on bouncy tracks and our batsmen often going "fishing" outside the off-stump. At that time, our players were also troubled by the happenings at home, like Anna's movement and Baba Ramdev's movement, people who were fighting black money and money stashed abroad. Hence they could not read the movement of the English speedsters' deliveries. Now that the Congress government, have sorted out Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev, our players are at peace and could bat, bowl and field well.

Nothing funny if we really consider the amount of money these people earn by way of IPL and other tournaments.
In India, thanks to news media we still consider them heroes, even after some of them were shown the door after enquiry for match fixing by a honest and upright retried CBI Director, by the name Madhavan Nair, if I am right.
Anna and Baba Ramdev had on their agenda, black money and money stashed abroad. That they positioned their demonstration in Delhi got lot of media attention.

1) What is wrong with making money? It is for the same reason you have travelled from your small village in Tamil Nadu to cold climates of Canada ... or do you have a "higher" moral reason for such a move.

2) Perhaps you need media to tell you who your heroes are .... but to ordinary Indians they call them heroes and zeros as they see them. So one day a Sachin or Kapil or Dhoni is a hero and next day becuase of your actions or failures they are zero ........ and that is how it should be !!!

3) Nair who ....... don't remember any CBI director by any name having anything to do with any of present day cricketers .... care to elighten us !!!

4) Baba Ramdev is the "item" guy in Indian politics, he can be best described as a "Rakhi Sawant" of Indian politics !!!!! |So i wont hold my breath if i were you for him to do anything "drastic" to change Indian polity.

I think it is too much to compare him to rakhi sawant .
He may have done stupid things but he has been talking about removing the corruption from a long time .
also he bought back the yoga in the daily lives of people .

1. Travelling from India to cold climates of Canada to make money. Why should we talk about it in the same breath when we talk about people allegedly making money by fixing matches, or making money by wrong means and stashing them abroad. I did travel to Canada for better future for my children. It was a personal decision that living in the small village in Tamil Nadu seemed to be better than living in what I thought was cold storage. Returned to India for good several years ago. There are a few others like me but many others think Canada is a better place to live and are successful. It is their personal decision.
2. About the role currently played by the media in India, better look for the discussion Karan Thapar had with Justice Markandeya Katju, Chairman, Press Council of India, in the Devils Advocate Programme of CNN-IBN telecast Monday, 31.10.2011.
3. No wonder people who sank the Bofors and Bhopal tragedy to the abyss, cannot remember the honest and upright CBI Director Madhavan Nair, who unearthed sordid details about the scandals. The same gentleman conducted the enquiry on behalf of BCCI and submitted his report. The BCCI on the basis of his report did take action on a few players, but did not make the report public. People like Arnab Goswami, Rajdeep Sardesai, who wouldnt mind unearthing secret documents involving the security of India, and flaunt them on TV screens, never got a chance nor did bother to do the same with this particular report. Apparently, BCCI seems to be more powerful than the Government of India.
4. The Rakhi Sawant and Item Guy of Indian politics, did stand up and got counted. He did not mind risking his business worth several hundred crores and several million followers. I do admire him for the same, though I come from a small village in Tamil Nadu, do not know more than the Char Run ke liye Sushil Joshi Hindi and hence not able to follow the "Item Guy".
Finally, like our own Puttoo of Canada, there is this Dig Vijay Singh of India, who every time anyone talks about corruption or black money under the Congress regime, carry out vituperative personal attacks on the persons integrity. He has discovered that RSS is behind the movements of Anna and Ramdev. He is likely to discover that the people of India were behind the Freedom Movement of Mahatma Gandhi. Actually, he and his co-workers in India and abroad are the ones, unashamed to be life time members of the underground RSS, i.e., Rahul Seva Sangh working in the name of Indian National Congress.

Your comment was about the cricketers making money in IPL .... now you might not know but it is all legal money paid to players. They have become rich becuase they are part of the second richest sporting league in world. So where does the question of match fixing come in !!!!!

Mr. Nair unearthed bubkiss !!!! It was a journalist Chitra Subramanium who investigated and gave the sordid details and if found its way to CBI ....... if Mr. Nair had the capabilty he would have built on the details provided by her to convict somebody. Till date we don't know anything more than what Chitra had unearthed ....... CBI, JDU, BJP,CPI ... you name it and they have failed to get a single conviction ... here read it http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/3458319.stm

When CBI was about to apprehend and question Quattrocchi, he escaped from India. He was never able to be questioned. His funds frozen by an England Court, thanks to the "magnanimity" of MMS, was released. MMS even commented that Quattrocchi was being harassed too much. So much for his Mr.Clean image.
May be one of Quattrocchi's assistants escaped to Canada.

India shot out for 209.
Thanks to hostile fast bowling even in unhelpful conditions, aided by a weak middle order that were past their prime and slow in their reflexes, and some excellent fielding, field placement and captaincy of Darrren Samy West Indies were able to restrict India to 209 and gain valuable first innings lead of 95 runs.
Anyone who likes the game of Test cricket will only have the best wishes for the West Indies players. That they have gone down during the last 2 decades make us feel sad for the state of the game. Poor infrastructure and payments, compared to the superstars of India. The WIs are powerfully built, play their game very hard, but it hardly shows on the field unlike the sledging Aussies or the avaricious Sri Lankans who appeal for LBW even for a ball pitched outside the leg stump and going out. Like their own WI isles culture, there is no MNCs or Corporate cut throat competition, just go about and enjoy their game, as they would their own lives.
We had Fidel Edwards bowling at 145 plus all the six deliveries in his over. If only we had one such bowler, we would give him Bharat Ratna. Our own Bharat Ratna candidate, was out for 7 in his quest for the remaining 93 runs and the elusive century. Never mind, you have a street corner BCCI head quarters, another 93 test matches, and even before that there will be a tour of /by Bangladesh. For the umpteenth time, our hero played across to a ball bowled on the middle stump and was plumb before the wicket. Instead of graciously looking at the umpire for his verdict, would show his back to him. The umpire being more professional lifted his finger. Any school coach of a 10 year old would scold him so much on his return to pavilion for such a stroke, that the boy would be in tears. But all the billions had blurred his vision, slowed his reflexes and made him shameless.
Definitely a word of praise for Rahul Dravid. Like in England, he went about his work in his own serious and methodical way, his temperament and game very much suited for test cricket. No PROs off the field to promote his cause even if he was not doing well and that makes him concentrate and work harder on the field.

Bofors case was filed during BJP rule and it was during their rule the courts threw the case out .... so we can bitch and crib for the rest of our lives but the fact remains that Bofors case is dead !!!!

All of India saw Bangaru Laxman taking bribe on TV ........ what happened afterwards !!!!!

BJP helps Congress and Congress helps BJP .... that is what is happening in India.
