A ray of light has two colors at the extremes. Colors are not colors when these two are taken out of the stream. Colors are meaningless but we gave them meanings. Different cultures, different religions have different level of importance to these colors. The only common are two colors. Black and White. Almost everywhere White signifies peace and good whereas Black signifies evil or bad. Though common significance these two “colors” plays important role in many countries.
Somewhere in an unknown place in this world two piglets are born from the same mother. It is unusual as most of the times the number is more than two. One of them was Black and other was White. White was very proud of his color and always teased Black for his color. The aggressive nature of Black always resulted in fights. Their mother was now unable to handle the childrens. She always wanted both of them to stay together. Not just stay together, but happily stay together.
One day a quick brown fox jumps over the fence and starts searching for his lunch. Just then his eyes catch the piglets. There was a dog house with a jammed door but there was no dog. Hence “the lazy dog” doesn’t come in picture. Effort by only one was not enough to open the door. They dash the door together. Door opens where they hide safely. That fox goes away with empty hands. Now both the pigs realize their mistake. They hug and live happily together. Continue reading →
I have started digging and am doing it seriously. It’s a great way to get some good stuff and good friends also. Almost all bloggers know what is the power of digg and what it can do to your blog. So some crap(including the contents of my blog) is digged into this network. The best way to get noticed is to create controversies. I hate the ones which are really unnecessary. Here is one of them.
While digging across I found this story. I was stunned. How can one make a survey of such thing?? They didn’t had any other question?? Why color of Jesus? Why god is also pulled into this “color” thing? I am a Hindu by religion and have faith in god. At the same time I think there is only one god above all religions. It hurts when someone tries to differentiate it based on color.
There are 33 crore god characters in my religion. Everyone has something unique. Some are black, some are blue, some are “white”. But they are praised with just the feeling to pray. The reason to pray may be different. Till date I never heard of single incidence where there was an argument like “Lord Krishna is white and not blue” or “Goddess Kali is not black”. We have fear for our god and that may be the reason behind this.
This is really cheap publicity just to create controversies and get hits. Such cheap things should be stopped. Unknowingly I digged this article instead of burying. Now i am thinking of creating controversies on current hot topics. How about a controversial link between Barack obama and Sarah Palin?? That will sell like a hot cake. Someone do it. Let me be clean.
If at the end of this post you are stil thinking of what color is Jesus then close your eyes and let your heart see him.
Thank God…. The so called biggest cricket extravaganza is over. Its a week since it’s over. I’m writing today because it was still in news even after the finale. It is said to be a huge success and has changed the cricket approach. the fast forward 20-20 games will soon replace 50-50. We don’t have time isn’t it?? So how will ICC get profit with our lack of time for things. but the, When there is a cricket match it’s like a holiday. You’ll hardly find anyone working in government offices.
The whole tournament lasted for 44 days and there were many controversies during the tournament. There were fights between team players. Someone slapped someone. Someone cried like a baby. The player doesn’t charge, but surprisingly the team captain does. Then the withdrawal of the charges. Mind you that the same players play for the country as a team. And now they are fighting here. As there is a saying. Controversies, Good or Bad, doesn’t matter. They are sure to get you in the limelight. Maybe tomorrow a celebrity will be in limelight for kicking a donkey. The donkey will get some limelight also. The confusion may be who is the donkey between two?? Continue reading →
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..
What is Cricket??
You have two sides one out in the field and one in.
Each man that’s in the side that’s in goes out and when he’s out he comes in and the next man goes in until he’s out.
When they are all out the side that’s out comes in and the side that’s been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out.
Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When both sides have been in and out including the not outs,
Thats the end of the game.
I hope you understood what cricket is. Now to the topic title. Is Cricket a religion?? In India they say,
If Cricket is religion, Sachin*** is God.
Certainly here peoples are crazy about Cricket. They Eat Cricket, Sleep Cricket, Think Cricket, Talk Cricket. Whenever there is India’s match you’ll find Government offices empty. Or near a TV or transistor. Crowd gathered on street outside TV shops. As an Indian this dangerous disease once affected me. But thanks to 2003 World Cup Final. It’s perfectly cured and I’m fit now. But for Cricket fan’s I should be admitted to Mental Hospital. (I still wonder why I’m not there). But the problem with that disease is that its infectious. So in order to stay away from infection, I sometime watch matches which are on Sundays. So far so good.
You see. I just got away from the topic. But reading all the above thing, It is a Religion. Its a religion which unites whole India together. This religion is very powerful. You hit this sweet spot, cleverly of course, Then name and fame are your’s. Everything has its Pro’s and Con’s. Cricket is no exception.
I don’t want you to feel bored. Will continue this Nonsense some other day.
*** = If you don’t know who is Sachin, Welcome to planet Earth.
