Make hay while the sun shines..

"He wanted to rise, but on his own terms; he was not hungry enough to sell himself short. He is Obama in white clothes"

When a person commits himself to writing atleast a column every week, I guess he has no choice but to scrape the bottom of the river and claim that the pebble he finds is a gold.

Thanks to an entertainer

"We (Sachin & Sourav) got to know each other so well that I could predict what he would do on the next ball. 

That, for me was special' 
I will definitely miss the sight of these two batting together. It was truly a golden period.

The Hype Masters

American media is chronically prone to sensationalizing everything right from McCain's morning coffee schedule. Every year, there would inevitably be a football game that would be declared as the Game of the century and I dont know how many games of the century we can have in a century.
Similarly, there is another claim that the undergoing election is historical and of unprecedented importance. I am sure it is easy to excite people about something that is happening or going to happen than something that happened 4 years back, but I strongly believe that the 'election of unprecedented importance' happened 4 years back and not the current one. Because it paved the way for another 4 years of Bush's presidency leading to invasion of Iraq, dumping of hundreds of billions of dollars in invasion (I refuse to call it War) and creating a conducive climate for the recession to occur. Had Bush not won, things would have different a long way and the economy would have been better off and the current election would not have gained such prominence (though the media would have found something to talk about it).

The MK Family tree

A good article, for someone interested in TN politics, elaborating on the spread of Karunanidhi's family and its whereabouts.

Yes. I want change soon and that is why I am very much looking forward to the American Presidential election. Not because I am 'hoping for change' with Obama or hoping that McCain would 'guide America and the rest of the world through this turmoil' but soon the media will stop their obsessive coverage of the campaigns and they will talk about only one person, the President, and forget the other three soon.
