A legend called " Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar"

  If there was anyone who could reach 200 runs for the 1st time in One day international cricket. Its Sachin Tendulkar. Who else could have been better than Sachin Tendulkar to cross the landmark. Who could have imagined when he opened his batting with Virender Sehwag in the 2nd ODI in Gwalior against south africa, that he could reach this amazing feat. 
Sachin glazed his way through the south african bowling attack, like he was not batting rather playing a violin, so smooth, so majestic, so graceful. To the defence of Proteas' bowlers, the pitch was a sitter, absolute batting track nothing for the bowlers. The only way they could have taken wickets, were when batsman made mistakes. 
Sachin has been a role model in and off the field. Hes been almost away from any controversies in his time in cricket. Whenever he was criticized for not playing well,  he came back strongly with solid performances. There is no shot in the cricket book, he can't play. Its absolute pleasure to watch him bat. Hes been an inspiration for young and old alike in Indian cricket team. He radiates, the spirit of success, strength and calm within him. Even when sehwag, yuvraj are boasting about the way they play, sachin sits calmly at the other end and does what hes best at play cricket.
Thers already many discussions in the sporting world, whos the best player in cricket. There has been Don Bradman, Richard Hadlee, Ricky Ponting, Brian Lara, Javed Miandad, Viv Richards, the list just goes on. And some may argue, that indian pitches are good for batting. I saw people writing, any batsman can score in such pitches. But make no mistake, this was against a formidable south african bowling attack. 
Frankly, i dont care what people think, for me, Sachin is the greatest player, Cricket has ever seen. If there is anyone deserving to be called 'Legend' its none other than 'Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar' .
Stand up everyone take a bow, coz even the gods are saluting, coz you are those fortunate people in this era, to have witnessed a Legend playing Cricket.

Monday Blues!!

Whts it about Monday? 90% people in the world, feel sick, tired, sleepy, when they think of going to work on monday morning.. Its something most of us hate..
Is it about the work, that they don't like but still have to go to earn enough money for themselves and family, or is it just that people are more lazy monday morning. 
If its about the work, one should be really thinking bout the job they do. After all we all want to do something we love. But sadly in reality, its different, we end up doing something we don't like.
I was reading a study done by some doctors that, our Reticular activating system is the least active on monday morning, compared to other weekdays. Interesting but still more research needed in this field. Reticular Activating system is the part of the brain responsible for wakefulness.. 
I guess, its more because of the preceeding relaxing weekend, our body systems are not geared up completely for going to work. Well thts just an hypothesis!!
To save yourself from monday morning blues, look forward to do something interesting, something you love on a monday morning...

Kingfisher IndiBlogger meet at Bangalore #indiblr 21/02/2010

I went to this Awesome meet organised by a website called Indiblogger . Indiblogger is a website with a directory of all bloggers in India. This meet was organised by bloggers in bangalore at KYRA pub and restaurant sponsored by Kingfisher. KF sponsored the free beer.
 It was gud to see so many people from all walks of life of all ages, came to the event. A gentleman Mr. saraswathan just enlightened everyone with his witty comments and information. He was awesome.
Well with the beer in hand, comments were flowing from all bloggers.. There was sum interesting discussions about how to make blogging better. Sum people took lotta objections for making money out of blogging.. which btw i feel thers nuthing wrong about it. In fact i feel people should make enough money from blogs and they need not get to their 9-5 job again. And then u'l have enough time for doing what u like, i.e blogging:) anywayz they are my views. But i was gud to see so many people eager to speak out. One guy i forgot his name, but everyone had to plead him to stop talking :P .. haha.
Another issues discussed were the copyrights and license issues, which was very informative for me. Some felt putting widgets in their blog is useless, nevertheless it gets u visitors and looks cool too :)
There was a interesting game arranged too, we were given big sheets to be hung up in our neck and people will write comments for u behind ur back. Ive put up a photo of the comments i got. I got to know lotta interesting people and got some interesting and encouraging comments too. Saw some funny comments on people's posters like " Im Mad", " I want free snacks" , " Man U sucks" which btw is totally true :)

Save our Tigers !!

1411.. only 1411 tigers left in India. Once we boasted about our national animal, and the beauty of the beast. But sadly there might be a day, when we can't see any one of them. Tiger hunting started as a sport in olden times, now it has lead to a stage where tigers are hard to find. 
India has about 37 tiger sanctuaries across the country. The number is slowly decreasing in each sanctuary. Its sad that we are left with so few tigers. Poaching of tigers for that matter any animal should be banned. Tigers are killed for their skin and body parts.The Bengal tiger is endangered because it is poached for its body parts to cater to an illegal market. Another reason is habitat loss due to depletion of forest cover interference of humans and encroachment of forest land by people causing fragmentation. At the turn of the century, there were almost reportedly 40,000 tigers in India, but now only 1411 remain in the wild.
Some facts 
  • 2009 was the worst year for tigers in India, with 86 deaths reported.
  • There are 37 Tiger sanctuaries in India. However, 17 sanctuaries are on the verge of losing their tiger population.  
  • Corbett National Park is the oldest tiger park in India. It was created in 1936 as ‘Hailey National Park’. 
  • The Kanha National Park’s lush sal and bamboo forests, grassy meadows and ravines provided inspiration to Rudyard Kipling for his famous novel, The Jungle Book.
Tiger is symbol of wilderness and well-being of the ecosystem. By conserving and saving tigers the entire wilderness ecosystem is conserved. In nature, barring human beings and their domesticates, rest of the ecosystem is wild. Hence conserving wilderness is important and crucial to maintain the life support system. So saving tiger amounts to saving the ecosystem which is crucial for man's own survival.
