I hope I got that spelling correct. This is summer time in some places of the world and there are heavy rains at my place. Most of the times in summer we drink these soft drinks. I’ve stopped drinking them since three years. So I’m not one of those. The popularity of these drinks keep increasing. Especially Pepsi and Coke.
Recently, On growing popularity of Garfield, Coke announced a new brand ambassador. Luckily I got his picture.
Atleast they’ll get a different breed of consumers…
It rained today. Unlike the showers in the Feb-March, this looks to be pre monsoon showers. It was really getting hot here. I was dying due to heat. It was really difficult to get out and feel the sun. But this shower for added a cooling sensation. It rained for about half an hour and now it has stopped. But it certainly brought the temperature down.
This is normal period or time for monsoon showers. They usually come during this time only. I hope these are pre monsoon showers. Somehow I have a strange fear that rains will behave very unexpectedly this year. It did same last year. Rains were unexpected last year. They used to disappear for some days and all collective rain quota for those days used to shower on one day. This created flood situations.
I’ll have to rush to my uncles farm for some forest fruits of summer. Else when rain starts those fruits disappear. I’ve planned to go on Saturday. Lets hope rains don’t interrupt and I’ve some fun there.
It was raining. And raining heavily. And someone asked me for my boots. Well I thought that since it’s raining he’ll need it to go out somewhere. And I gave it. But look what he did..
Now that’s a bootplant. I’m not worried about boot but the plants. Will they survive from the terrible smell of my a year ago washed shoes. And that too were washed due to rains.
Last time I talked about this and left the topic incomplete. And I don’t assure you to complete it this time. The last time I talked I said Cricket as a religion in India. And if it’s religion then Sachin is GOD. I thought of writing about cricket due to ongoing DLF cricket league. This is certainly heating up cricket fans.
This league started on 18th April. And I’m writing about this today. Almost 10 days later. Reason?? There is no reason for that. Just because I like to do things late and I’m a lazy person. You should call yourself lucky that you are reading this 10 days late. It could have been after the tournament. Let it be. Back to the topic.
The very hyped tournament made a good start and is gathering good crowd. It is also creating lot of controversies also. But these are necessary to get the limelight and selling of tickets. Cricket is going through a change that I don’t admire. The format of the games is 20-20. And there is no cricket involved here. It’s just murder of cricket. I see half-nude cheer girls, cheering after every wicket or boundary. I never expected such thing in India and in Cricket.
I cannot call 20-20 as cricket format. In this format there is nothing to play. Just get to the pitch and play with horizontal bat with as much power you can. That’s simple. I was amazed to see centuries being scored in 20 overs. And the balls taken for centuries were around 50 balls. There have been 200+ scores in 20 overs. There is rain or say tsunami of fours and sixes. This is certainly not cricket.
Why I’m talking about cricket when I don’t watch it much or don’t like it much. i don’t like cricket, But as a sports lover I love all sports. And don’t like things which removes the charm and the class of the sport. This murder of cricket will continue till 1st June. I watched 2-3 matches in my free time. Though eye soothing it was not worth watching.
Will continue writing about this..
It’s been 4 days raining heavy here. I haven’t seen rains like this in summer before.
The summer has not yet started and the rains arrived. I feel like I’m in the monsoons. Though monsoons are supposed to start in June. As I’ve said earlier about Ice Age looks like it’s going true. I’ve seen various climatic changes in past 2 years. They all indicate towards a big climatic change on our planet.
Still confused whether it’s natural or man-made. May be Mother nature wants to heal the wounds and is making those changes. We have already hurt her very much and in spite of all troubles we are getting we continue to do so. I don’t know when we will realize the importance and understand the climatic changes.
As said in my earlier post, We can take some precautions. But will they work?? They should be. Though I’m in doubt about the changes being natural or man-made, I’m inclined towards that its being man-made. The pollution, cutting of trees, overuse of resources make me think so. My posts like this may not change the minds of all but I’ll be happy if it changes one.
