Sneaking in

Cricket –

It ‘felt’ like the boyz in blue would actually be able to turn the tables and bring home some pride. ..Just ‘felt’ but never happened. I can be an arm-chair pundit and point fingers at Sehwag, Tendulkar and a few others for the misery etched but where is the solution? Ganguly slapped a big slab of ‘shame on you!’ on the selectors’ shameless faces while Kumble proved yet again why he doesn’t need front page articles and multi crore endorsement deals to prove he is the only consistent match winner we have got in the team.

Humor –

Accidentally bumped into this blog – Have to say that it is the most indigenous satire that has come out of the blog world (that I have read)! Very much like the humor that I enjoyed reading during my college days – the kind of mundane satire that came out of our English press.

Books –

The Mephisto club & False Impression. Two very different stories told by two very different authors – one an esoteric murder chase with a cabalistic twist and another a simple adventurous international murder mystery set in a Van Gogh background. Both acted as my aeroplane & bedside reads..I can’t really pick one over the other even though Jeffrey Archer was more successful in keeping my focus on.

Gadgets –

I just placed an order for an 80-GB ipod and 2 days later Jobs releases an “iphone”. I am still not sure about smartphones as I find them inconvenient. The pictures of the new iphone look promising but have to wait till June to hear it buzz..

Just look at the picture – This is what creative product design is all about. Steve Jobs cannot stop surprising us.

2007 – is already here. Kinda sneaked in when I was asleep 😉 But it is here to stay for another year – but ’06 sneaking out?? Hmmm..not sure how much I am upset specially after reading that hilarious blog (link above)


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
