Orkut and My Relationship Status

There has been much confusion over the last few days about my relationship status in . Basically what happened is I changed my relationship status to "Single" to "Committed" due to some good things that happened to me this year. That's where this story starts! One fine morning, as I start up my computer and get ready for another day's fight with variables and functions, I get bewildering scraps and mails from friends, all asking when did I got married and demanding why they weren't informed! Little did they know that I myself wasn't informed that I have become"Single, Married"!!!
Yes, you read it right. Orkut has decided me to be a trend setter and allotted to me more than one-values from a drop-down list!! In their opinion, my relationship status is "Single, Married"!
So here's my message to all my bewildered friends, ITS A BUG! And a humorous one at that, no doubts!! Hey Google-ians, if any of you are reading this, please look into the code and rescue me ;)

So, bottomline is I am not "Single, Married" afterall!

Underarm bowling becomes underhand deals : now in Team Selection

Sign the petition We oppose the exclusion of Ganguly from the Indian cricket team .

Well, i got nothing more to say. Words are useless, everyone knows some people have gone trash and started using Indian cricket like their tissue papers. Shame on them, but frankly, I don't even feel like screwing them with choicest words ...... hell thay ain't worth it.

Still, if you want to read something well-written on this in the Indian blogosphere, go to Deepak-da's blog - here

Just sign the petition. But nothing will happen anyway.

Don't forget, this is India.

World Cup groups

The World cup grouping are here, and once again, good teams get the death groups! Argentina and Holland in the same group...both my top favourites. Czech Republic and Italy also have been placed in the same group, while Brazil, Germany are placed in cakewalk-ish groups(not underestimating the teams in their groups though!). Among my favourites, Spain has managed a rather easy group.

Hoping both Argentina and Holland qualifies for the second round(and more).

Tribute to my Hero

From the age of 6, I have been following his batting and been inspired by his sheer genius. He is not just a cricketing hero, but a champion who has inspired a generation - a deserving cult-figure. Hats Off, Boss!


Another good guy killed for corruption

After Satyandra Dubey, another one - Manjunath. Killed as a reward for being honest.
Mera Bharat Mahaan!

In the long run, we are all dead, I know. But, for heaven's sake, he was just 27. Murdered. Brutally. In cold blood. For something so abstract, so derided, so demeaned as "Values"...

Good bye to the Prince of Football

"George Best will get a standing ovation from the Old Trafford crowd for one last time on Saturday when Manchester United take on Portsmouth, hours after the former United great is laid to rest in his native Belfast. United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric, a personal friend of Best's, will both arrive at the early evening match after flying back from the funeral in Northern Ireland, where up to half a million people are expected to turn out in honour of the province's greatest ever player."

-- Good bye, the Vincent Van Gogh of Football! Rest in peace! Your glory will remain forever.

Longest URL and longest list!!

Interesting stuff!!! Check it out Junta!

Quentin Tarantino is a genius

Anyone who could write and direct stuff like has to be a genius. Will watch out all his movies. Simply unforgettable.

There's a passage I got memorized.
Ezekiel 25:17. "The path of the
righteous man is beset on all sides
by the inequities of the selfish
and the tyranny of evil men.
Blessed is he who, in the name of
charity and good will, shepherds
the weak throu gh the valley of the
darkness. For he is truly his
brother's keeper and the finder of
lost children.
And I will strike down upon thee
with great vengeance and furious
anger those who attempt to poison
and destroy my brothers. And you
will know I am the Lord when I lay
my vengeance upon you." I been
sayin' that shit for years. And if
you ever heard it, it meant your
ass. I never really questioned
what it meant. I thought it was
just a cold-blooded thing to say to
a motherfucker 'fore you popped a
cap in his ass. But I saw some
shit this mornin' made me think
twice. Now I'm thinkin', it could
mean you're the evil man. And I'm
the righteous man. And Mr. .45
here, he's the shepherd protecting
my righteous ass in the valley of
darkness. Or is could by you're
the righteous man and I'm the
shepherd and it's the world that's
evil and selfish. I'd like that.
But that shit ain't the truth. The
truth is you're the weak. And I'm
the tyranny of evil men. But I'm
tryin'. I'm tryin' real hard to be
a shepherd.

Great Stuff, awesome!
