Once X asked Y, “What is the secret behind your happy married life?”
Y said, “You should share responsibilities with due love and respect o each other. Then absolutely there will be no problems.”
X asked, “Can you explain?”
Y said, “In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my life decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each other’s decisions.”
Still not convinced, X asked Y “Give me some examples”
Y said,” Smaller issues like which car we should buy, how much amount o save, when to visit home town, which Sofa, air conditioner, refrigerator to buy, monthly expenses, whether to keep a maid or not etc are decided by my wife. I just agree to it”
X asked, “Then what is your role?”
Y said,” My decisions are only for very big issues. Like whether America should attack Iran, whether Britain should lift sanction over Zimbabwe, whether to widen African economy, whether Sachin Tendulkar should retire etc etc. Do you know one thing, my wife NEVER objects to any of these!!!
It was forwarded to me by a friend. So, I have no idea about the original source of the mail.

Headline in the newspaper today:
Frankly, I don’t think there is a beast that comes anywhere close to the Tiger in the wild when it comes to personality. Its presence is just awesome. Even the Lion pales in comparison.
I feel really sad that this is the state of Tigers in India, where it is the National Animal.

Have a look at this.
The previous post talked about how things have changed in the last couple of decades. But, the link mentioned above talks about how the idiot box has changed in the last century.

This is the effect of liberalization of the Indian economy. We have flat TV’s and also supersize fries from MacD.
Got this as a forward. So, I have no idea who the creator is. If you know the creator then leave a comment and I will add the credit.

Not sure if some of the things are setup, but they are sure funny (for watching ).

The Harbhajan saga just doesn’t go out of the limelight. It seems that senior Australian players are upset with CA over how this issue has been handled. They can be upset with the way it was handled, but they can’t be upset that Harbhajan was let off as there was no evidence.
The thing that pisses us off is that it shows how much power India
has,” the anonymous contracted player told the paper. “The Aussie guys
aren’t going to make it [the accusation] up. The players are frustrated
because this shows how much influence India has, because of the wealth
they generate. Money talks.[Link]
Well, Money does talk. But, shouldn’t the Aussie players realize that the case was unwinnable. It is a case where there are 2 people from the same family accusing someone else of doing something wrong and appearing for the case as witness. Just doesn’t work in the court of law. Maybe the Aussies don’t understand this simple thing.
But, I still believe that the BCCI shouldn’t have postured the way it did. Given the fact that there was no evidence, they could have just let the ICC handle matters. This sort of posturing will only lead to loss of friends and lot of ill will.
Hopefully, cricket will go forward in the right direction from here. And I still want Mike Procter to explain his previous decision. Is the white man’s word still more truthful than a brown man’s word?

To an extent I agree with what is written in this article about the Harbhajan saga. I agree to the point that revenue considerations have taken centrestage over the issues and Cricket Australia and ICC caved into BCCI’s demands. If the Aussie players were really confident that Harbhajan had uttered the word they consider racial, then they shouldn’t have agreed to downgrade the charges. This doesn’t speak well about the integrity of the Aussie players.
I don’t agree to a couple of things in the article, when the author agrees to the Australian players feeling that Harbhajan should have been punished with at least a one match ban. This should have happened only if there was sufficient evidence to prove that Harbhajan uttered the word “Monkey”. I feel that the Australian players are crazy if they feel that they can get Harbhajan banned without sufficient evidence. If Mike Procter had used some other evidence than just going by the word of the Aussie players over the word of Sachin Tendulkar, then I am pretty sure that a lot of people in India itself would have stood by ICC’s decision and said that the rules should be followed. What irritated the people in India and the Board itself is the fact that there is no evidence other than what the Australian players are claiming. If Ricky “integrity” Ponting claims that his integrity shouldn’t have been questioned after the Sydney test, then he should have stood by what he told Mike Procter instead of backing down. Now, this brings me to the question of whether the Aussies should have been punished for lying?
Now, the best thing that the ICC can do is to tell the world, how two entirely different decisions were arrived at within a span of 20 odd days with the same evidence, which is still considered inconclusive. Read this piece at Guardian. It talks without any prejudice that the Australians would have regarding the judgement and throws out the persons involved and looks at the process.
