It has been a hectic two weeks. Apart from beefing up my AR Rahman collection in my iPod and trying to get through Bill Bryson’s Sun Burned Country, I cannot really recount anything productive that trickled out of the cerebral part of my mind. If not anything, I felt bad that I did not get to spend much time with my son who probably was looking forward to the usual goofing around with his dad. I am sure things will slow down in the next couple of weeks again.
Ooh La La – This is probably the best talent hunt program I have ever seen either in Indian or any other TV channels. Even though a lot can be said about the hosts as well as the voice overs, etc. the cause of the contest is extremely commendable. The kind of teaming spirit and bonding this contest brings out is simply amazing. Once again, Rahman has been a trend setter!
The Indian batsmen finally got around to seasoning their willows in the English summer (including Kumble) leaving a little bit too less for their cherry wielders who couldn’t clean up the English tail on the last day. But overall, I am sure they did decent.
The country couldn’t reelect AJ Kalam and what a sham it turned out to be. The lady who got Congress’s backing has a name that will soon become obsolete even when she is in power and totally erased from history soon after. It is a pity that the whole Presidential election is rigged beyond any kind of imagination of even an extremely corrupt Indian citizen.
Sixty years and the congress party is still in power with the same family orchestrating all the power games in New Delhi. Somethings never change even after sixty years.
Happy Independence Day!
