What The… Worldcup!!!

The most anticipated world cup has started. It’s been eight days and there is not much happening in this most happening event. As a spectator, I expect thrilling finishes and tough competition in worldcup of any sport. But this Cricket Worldcup has been pretty much boring till now. There are exceptions.

The first, ENG Vs NED match. This was a very close match. I thought this will be the first upset of this worldcup. Somehow, ENG managed to save their “BACK”(You know the word). NED, tagged as one of the minnows, played brilliantly. They deserved a win. Better luck next time.

The next match, PAK Vs SRI. PAK is our BELOVED neighbor. So I was supporting PAK as any GOOD neighbor will. This was way closer than what I thought. I expected SRI to win as they had the home ground advantage. They even managed to restrict PAK to a chase-able total. But this game, is full of surprises. Captains bowling and The lost nerves of SRI players helped PAK to win the match. SRI didn’t play to their potential. Just as one is happy of his neighbor’s progress, I was also happy that PAK won. In fact, very happy.

The third match finished just a couple of hours back. IND Vs ENG. I had a hunch that IND will loose this match no matter what. That was because of their poor performance against BAN. If BAN can score 283 easily then ENG can easily score 350 against IND. Guess what?? I was almost right. It was sheer luck that ended the game in tie. When IND finished batting and scored 338, everyone thought this match will go to IND. I was quite disappointed by the way they gifted their wickets at the end of inning. IND should have crossed 350 mark with ease. ENG began chase in right direction. The thrill started in the last 10 overs of the match. Game switching sides with every ball delivered, every ball played. No one expected a draw here. But one need to expect unexpectation in this game.

Was this just because the worldcup has only started? Or the pitches are flat and made for batsmen? Is it just coincidence that both ENG matches were thriller?

Whatever…

Someone…

Someone put a life into this worldcup.

Bye Bye 2010

This is the last day of year 2010. So I decided to write and opened the blog editor. I couldn’t go beyond the blank screen. I kept staring and thinking of the best or worst things happened this year. Nothing… The most boring year so far. There were very few moments of excitement but not worth mentioning. As the year closed to an end, I desperately wanted see the new year sun.

This year I was totally brain stuck. No new ideas. No imagination. No crazy dreams. No Nonsense. I feel like this year was empty. Every year fills up my thought basket. I empty that at the year end for the new thoughts. Not this year. It’s already empty.

I hope the new year brings a lot of positive changes in me.
I hope it gives me courage.
I hope it gives me strength.
I hope it gives me the ability to take quick decisions.
And above all it makes me think selfless. You must have figured that out by my previous lines.

Bye Bye 2010.. (Sound of emptying of bucket)

A Better YOU

“Your task… to build a better world,” God said.

I answered, “How?… this world is such a large, vast place, and there’s nothing I can do.”

But God in all His wisdom said, “just build a better you.”

An obvious question to follow this conversation. Have you ever tried to build a better YOU? It’s very easy to teach someone good manners or inject good thoughts, but they are difficult to follow. A drunk man cannot advise anyone to NOT drink. Who will listen to him? Of course there are people who will take this. The reason is that they don’t want to end up as the person in front of them. But these are very rare cases.

You can’t spread joy unless you are happy.
You can’t spread positivity unless you are positive.
You can’t teach to fight unless you have fought first.
In fact, You can’t teach anything unless you know it well.
You can’t build a better human being unless you are one.

The Random Ramblings will continue..
Till then
Think Nonsense…
