Ram, Laxman and ‘Mehehehehe…Mehehehehehe’!!

The last two week was a crazy one in India. For an Indian, who pretty much lived his life in Chennai, living in the US during those times was sad! The week before last had Mr. Ram (Lord Ram, as in the guy who married Sita!) hogging the limelight. Poor man had no idea how much people would fight over a land in his name centuries after he even existed. Finally the verdict handed over by the court? Lets share the land!!

Do not mistake me when I give the “!!”, thinking I am conservative by nature. I am just ridiculing the time taken by the High Court to hand out this verdict. If none know about the time frame of the case, from the little research I did on the case, it took them 60 years!!! The verdict was extremely fair in my opinion, considering that the court had to satisfy a country with 1.2billion+ people who come from all walks of life. Mr Ram must have surely happy with the fact that there was no deaths like in the 1992.

 

Next comes the happiness India had from Mr.Laxman. Vangipurappu Venkata Sai Laxman played the innings of his life (if we were to forget the 2001 innings of 281 against Australia) against his favourite opposition, the Aussies (Oz) scoring 73* n.o and handing India is closest victory in tests. One of my friends most rightly said, ” LAXMAN = Leaves Australian XI Miserably Agonised, Nonstop….!!!!!!”. How true considering the fact that most of his test runs have been against the country that is often touted the greatest in the game! I saw the final two overs and I was in tears when India won.

To put it more artistically, Ram and Laxman made India happy in every way possible.

 

For those who are kind of wondering on what my last part of the post if about….. “Mehehehe….Mehehehe”…??? It about the movie ‘Enthiran, the Robot’!!! India’s most expensive movie (probably even Asia’s from what I read on the net) ever, having a dream caste that none other than Sun Pictures can assemble (Rajinikanth, Aishwarya Rai, AR Rahman, Dir.Shankar,Resul Pookutty,Cam.Manikandan, Sabu Cyril’s art, Peter Hainz along with Hollywood’s best in action and graphics).

But more than the movie, it is Mr.Rajinikanth who made me watch the movie. A wonder-man whose magnetic pull is more for his style than his acting (I love his acting, so no offense); a man who still acts as a 30 yr old romancing ladies younger than his own daughters and fighting goons 10 times his size, but making it all so enjoyable that we actually forget that we have to think!! Here is a list of things Rajini could possibly do in his lifetime (its all funny, but could happen in his movies. This is what makes him what he is now!! I am sure a North-Indian created this list though):

1. Rajinikanth killed the Dead Sea.

El día que adoré el uno yo odio :)

Well, after a pretty tiring trip to Las Vegas and Los Angeles, here i am to share with you guys an article i read on my flight… For all you “spanish” ignorant ppl out there, my post’s title literally means – “The day i loved the one i hate” 🙂 … To tell you the truth I was highly influenced by the Julia Roberts’ Movie – Sleeping with the enemy – for the title of the post 😛 ,don’t ask me why!!

As you all must’ve understood by now, I am a boring guy and my favourite game is tennis… I loathe the man by the name “Rafael Nadal”, fondly called by many as “Rafa”…to think that the name has become a brand by itself… YUCK!! So I have always wondered why I hate him so much… I found some reasons for it (as if finding reasons to hate is tough!!!)

1. He, at the age of 23(that’s NEARLY my age!!) has accomplished tooooo much in tennis.

2. He has been very one dimensional in his game at times and beats my favorite player.

3. Has a very muscular body!! 😛

4. Has long hair.

5. I hate him cos I WANT to HATE him!!!

So how’d i start to respect him??? Read the following….

Firstly, I take it for granted that everybody here remembers the magical finals of Wimbledon 2008… After the match, everybody had gathered around Rafa’s room to congratulate him and celebrate his success….but this “boy” acted in the most mature manner and asked everybody to leave saying that Federer was in the adjacent room and these celebrations would devastate federer more…. I am sure I would have celebrated!!! Oh like, come on man!! It’s Wimbledon!!!!! But I respect the respect he has for his competitors…

The professionals say that though he is a man with killer instincts on court, once the game finishes, he’s a stoic, humble 23-year old kid who lavishly praises his opponents, has reasons for his defeats, and loves to go back to his room and play on his PS-3, the game of course being tennis! 😛 … Do anyone of you know that his kid rents out a house in England near the All-England tennis stadium during the Wimbledon and jogs to the court everyday for his matches?? 🙂

Nadal’s athletism can be attributed to his family- his uncle was a spanish soccer star, and this led him to play soccer right from childhood… His other uncle was a Tennis player, and his fascination to the sport, drew him to ask his uncle to teach him the sport, and it was around this point that i started liking him… This kid was offered scholarship and free education in Spain to play for his national team at the Barcelona Tennis Federation, but the kid said NO!! He said he was fine playing under his uncle, a person who was never a tennis professional… It was the respect he had for his “first tutor” that prompted him to take up that decision… His uncle is reponsible for his Left-Hand play… To this day, Nadal cannot even hold a fork with his left hand properly!!! Believe it or Not 😉 … His uncle has taught him more mental tennis than physical, and his physique is due to his hard-work… Determination to be a strong hitter in a game cansidered for the “gentle”-men…. Uh… I do not know whether i convinced anybody with this post, but I have developed more regard for this kid-star in the last few weeks… My favourite will remain FedEx….the perfect tennis player ever to have lived…but the one I hate in now respected…. I have learnt that it’s more about the mental strength than show-off… Hoping to be more regular with my posts 😛 😉 …Take care buddies!!! Love you guys 🙂

The game that needs the MOST balls!!! :P

Ha!!

So here I am writing this blog from Buffalo, New York just to keep up my promise on being present in this ‘blogoshere’ regularly… I would like to thank all ma frens for their comments on my very first post 🙂 … It has given me lotsa inspiration to write more irritating stuff for you guys!!  😛

Now coming to my post… It doesn’t take a nerd to guess the name of the sport…. It is tennis!!! A game that has compulary balls ( i meant the tennis balls, of course!!! ) change every 6 games… 🙂 … Now they use 9balls for every change!!! Jus think of how many balls the organisers would end up with at the end of a grand slam, like the Wimbledon?!!

I love tennis, though I can never watch a complete game of tennis without dozing off!! Hence i go on and accept that tennis IS the MOST boring sport……well the boredom stops with just watching it though  😛 …. Tennis is considered to be the most tiring outdoor game, next only to football… I play some decent tennis and am an ardent fan of all-round tennis players like Andre Agassi and Roger Federer… I am more of a serve and volley player though, like the Sampras’ and Pat Rafter… Personally I loathe players like Rafael Nadal (Rafa), b’cos he is a player who believes on power and has very little technique…. Uh……. To understand my argument, I would like to talk of the grand slam tourneys….

1. Australian Open – The surface is a cushioned carpet, and hence players who have a good overall game or good serve&volley win here…. I salute Nadal for his victory here this year….though it was obvious Fed was unwell that whole tourney….indeed Fed has a recently diagnosed health disease that is similar to haemophilia and has also been plagued by back problems…

2. French Open – The surface is made of three layers of clay and assists players who have very good movement… The list of French Open winners will show that this surface has been the nightmare of players who believed in technique…like let us take Gustavo Kuerten – uh, I think I had better technique to him!!  😉 … So true to this theory of more powerful and faster running winners, i was more than pleased to watch Rafa get a drubbing from Mr.Soderling!! I was actually so damn happy that i treated my frens at the Madras Race Club the next day 😛 …

3. Wimbledon – The true Tennis championship…. Many find it tough to play here just due to the pressure of having to play in a tournament as culturally rich as this!!

4. US Open – The relatively new grand slam that is played on hard court and supports players who have good service…

Any player who wins all these 4 slams is considered to be a true all-rounder, though i don’t consider it a neccessary qualification cos sampras and till date FedEx have never won French!!

Tennis looks very boring cos it is not a team sport and when there are very few players like McEnroe and Roddick, the “entertainment” factor is very low!! 😛 (enna pa panradhu…. indha kalathula jananga ellathulayum masala kekkuranga 😛 )… But i can confidently tell you this about this sport of balls….. Indha vilayatha pathi pesuradhum kashtham, parkuradhum kastham…… vilayaduradhum kashtam  😉  😛 …. I am ready to coach any person interested in learning this “gentleman’s sport”…  🙂

This game is easy to understand and learn but tough to watch….

So ppl!!! Move your butt outta your couch and hit the tennis courts near your house for a good game of tennis… This sport doesn’t need “balls” to play!!! Just some interest  🙂

Cheers

My first day in this new world…

Hey People,

Welcome to my world of “Occaeco Ardor”….

Firstly, I am here just to kill time and suppress the anger I have on people outside my “family”…

I am basically a very boring person and hence i can promise you that my blog will hold nothing but “non-technical” stuff here… People cannot be promised of any regular postings as well….

I have no interest in theoretical education and I am non-existent to the world of literature. Hence whatever i share here is what i face in life, or am most likely to face and nothing very philosophical… I don’t care if you feel I am at times breaking the rules of your “blog-world”!! So save your time and stop giving comments on asking me to behave in my posts… 😛

I will start with my favourite sports….(basically will be a tutorial for everybody to play the game)

and in the coming days will talk about the little music i know, before starting on my first movie’s story…

Enough with my blog’s introduction now…. Take care….

Luv ya all!!

Deepak
