The IPL mania has gripped India including me. I being a totally non-cricket conformist following the game is pretty surprising. Its got the entire nation glued to the idiot box. Its got our fairer sex move from the tear jerking dramas to the cricket. Well the whole thing started off from being a league championship to money pumping business.
The IPL impact is totally visible on me as an individual as well. Well I watch the series with a vengeance to ensure that the city which hurt me doesn't get to win. Aint I becoming too political about the whole series. Well yeah, but I don't mind it as long as my personal ego is being satisfied by the losing city. The game has made me realize that I actually have been christened as a true Bangalorean.
The game has also got our honorable politicians into the foray of cricket. The last thing that we expected was the money laundering come out rattling in the open. The skeletons of few maybe have been exposed. But I'm sure that there is more to the eye. The whole parliament is busy focusing on the IPL rather than solving the hard pressing issues in the country. The houses get adjourned over the minister who was mentoring the newly born team. There are strong people standing up against each other vowing to wash the dirty linen in the public. The amount of attention and money that goes into the IPL if used for a better cause would have definitely taken the country a step forward from the clutches of poverty for the downtrodden.
The question is that will this happen in any other country...???
It happens only in India...:)

"Unknown"....many a times we get calls from this number....the reaction is obviously not happy at the first ring...we as humans tend to think a lot before acting on it. We potray different reactions depending on the caller..happy @ times...scared...fearful...angry...sad.
The question is whether the reactions are stemming from the unknown number that is flashing or is it the person on the other line who is generating these reactions. The outcomes are varied..while its the fear of the unknown that stirs us up and many a times its the unknown person who adds on more spice to the whole process.
Is there a prescription to cure this fear? I suppose there are answers to this. Many a times, the cure can from a spiritual place. I read somewhere that everything that happens is for a reason..the future to come will also have a reason. Well does it satisfy me? Not sure...how much it holds water in the mindless unknown thoughts running through my mind. The unknown future...or a known future..Should i be worrying for a future that is unknown..or just take each day as it comes. Taking each day as it comes..is what a majority of junta do...and i guess thats th way to go coz we dont screw up our today thinking about whats in store tomorrow.
I know that the various things running in my mind do not have an explanation...who am I truly...where am i heading to...am I doing what am supposed to...am i right/wrong...why do i sound like a bunch of muffled nerves..why am i different...am i a normal being or just someone who is not from this universe...:)
Questions n questions......

Here...I am back to what I love doing..:) I hope to be more frequent with my writings rather the long bouts of absence. Life has zipped across with the speed I never expected it to..I was hoping that my sob stories would continue for some more time before I get into more relevant things. Nevertheless, life has changed for the good. There are a billion thoughts running across in my mind but will not be able to wobble out everything together...
More to pen in the coming days......:)
