No TV (Tabloid) Channel or for that matter the Print Media would have hated this week coz there for lot of material for churning out rumours, gossip, hoax and off cousre some NEWS. This was the week when I logged on to Orkut first time in Three weeks and completed the formalities of adding on some more friends and checking my G Mail account only to find a few jokes some beautiful snaps and spam. I did forward the clip which I think I must upload in the next few days. All those of have managed to have a look just see it to believe it.
An obituary to a Maestro.
This week saw the sad demise of Ustad Bismillah Khan. He was an exponent of Shehnai. The grand old man saw some horrorful days mainly due to the neglect of his kin. It is a sad story. He was reluctant to go to west but he was successful as any musician and not as flashy as some of his other exclaimed peers.
He will be most remembered for playing Shehnai on 15 August, 1947 when Indians won their Independence.
Rumors, hoax and scares.
This week saw things happening. The sea water near a revered Dargaah became sweet the stautues in temples started drinking Milk again, Mother Mary was crying a church. I said to myself wow. People thronged to see the miracle but I laughed with no intention of hurting anyones sentiment. I just wanted to reiterate that religious explanation start from the point scientific wisdom cannot think. I have a firm belief that religion do restrict man's view. It gives him the power to think beyond what contemporary.
Then there were bomb hoaxes in predominantly American flights. "There is a saying that one rotten apple ruins the whole basket". I dont know for how long will the world especially the developing and the under developed world will have to bear the brunt of "war against Terrorism". The world most powerful democracy is the biggest obstacle to world peace.
I atlast some some coverage on the havoc of floods on Surat. It was worst then what was reported by Agnecies who also report NEWS, having said that the relief work is under way courtesy the government and the innumerous volunteer groups. The cleaning operation is in full swing. There are some areas which have not been accessed but things are about to get only better.
I think I will update the second part of Floods on Surat in a few coming days.
Pakistan Cricket Team commit suicide.
It may have been the matter of National pride but Pakisatni team, missed the opportunity of beg win and restore some pride. The ball was changed and they still played, they seem to hold all the cards and would have had buried all dismay of whatever happened and gave a crushing blow on England and also Darrel Hair. What was the point of not coming back to the ground again after tea.If somebody decieves me once shame on him and if someone decieves me twice shame on me. There is no doubt that ICC is not the most fair and potent sports governing body. They can still do so as the One Days are still to start.England is not the best One Day team so it is less of a challenge.
Pakistani's have been guilty of tampering with the ball. The Pakistani bowlers from Imran and Waqar have been guilt and reprimanded at various time. Darell hair has no proff though, atleast this time TV crew did not catch it. It is a sad episode in cricketing history but Inzamam would have done better had he taken the option of coming out again bowling England out at the earliest and then guide Pakistan to a thumping victory. I am sure all new of ball tempering then would have swept under the carpet and there would have been one less cricketing controversy.
Looks whos blogging?
Invincible is back after a long break. I would like to welcome him back and hope the next break wont be as long as this one. :)
