Anyone game for a match of fantasy football ???

At long last I am going to give you something!
I am going to prove, once and for all, that I would make a total success of a career as a football club manager if I so wished, and you would make an absolute disaster of one.
Using new genetic cloning technology, Italy want to use my DNA to create the next Marcelo Lippi, whilst only Togo and Costa Rica want yours. And that I choose to show my innate superiority by inviting you to join me in xperteleven, where looking down on you from my lofty top table perch throughout the tournament, I will occasionally wave to you in a condescending and rather ugly manner. If you must accept my challenge, it's completely FREE.
Here is how to prove me wrong:
Simply click here to register your team with xperteleven.
Then click on the following link to apply for a team in my league:
From there you will be able to register your team in my league.
You can apply for any of your favourite football team names.


After the blasts in Bombay a couple of weeks ago, many minister in India are sad that it has not adopted the same approach as Israel. First things first, what Israel is doing is deplorable. They are targeting civilians and civilian infrastructure. Perhaps some one has forgotten all about the holocaust. You do not hit two ambulances consecutively by mistake – they very well know what they are targeting at. I would depise my country if it did anything similar.

Moving over, there are three specific events whose occurrence I would like to point out.

Event 1: Saturday preceding the blasts – Curfew has been imposed in Bhiwandi where riots have been going on since three days. The police want to build a police station over a Muslim graveyard. The even is given a slight tone of communal bias.

Event 2: Sunday preceding the blasts – Bal Thackrey speaks out in public against Muslims and terrorists. He is well known for his role of inflammatory speeches that incited communal fires after the blasts in 1992.

Event 3: Monday preceding the blasts – Prime Minister Man Mohan Singh points out that he is disappointed about the fact that even today certain individuals and politicians want to divide the country on lines of religion.

The blasts were certainly very well planned. Let us assume that even if they took a week to plan, the occurrence of events 1 and 2 within such a short span of one another and the blasts is too much of a coincidence.

Pointing fingers and missiles towards Pakistan is not the solution.

Hey, I am back !

Back after a long haitus. Work, work and more work had me occupied. Atleast in the time being, my passport was made (whopee), but I am yet to recieve my civil ID (the pace and efficiency with which my office admin works is really commendable. Formalities regarding my visa et all are yet to be completed - oh and by the way, I started working for them in December last year!).

And while I am at it, I also know that our company has started to monitor our emails etc. How do I know? Well, I just know.

My next post will be a bit political. So in case you get bored by politics, you can skip that post.
