Life is Still Beautiful… Isn’t it ?

Im what I want to be

Who you are?
Do you know?
Look behind you
Like foot prints in the snow that only you can see
You know where you have been and what you’ve done.
That cant change….

Now look in front of you
White as the snow, empty like a piece of paper
Write your own story

Diamonds are forever

Chelsea 1 - 0 Man Utd .... Thats what the final score read after 90+5 entertaining minutes of highly professional football at Stamford bridge.Perheps Man U played best football of thr season and shook a little of Diamond formation of Chelsea , still Chelsea hold the control of game and did well enough in defence....
Sir Alex , as usual fuming at the referee... so nothing new about it.
I wonder why a man like him always remain unhappy about the things that do happen in football...अभी तक आदत नहीं पड़ी क्या ??
anyways.. next week thr is no major league match so i will have to find something else to keep me entertained in that slot of time...
Redesigning this blog wont be a bad idea??

Apologies

Sorry guys.. hasn't been a good time for two reason --
1- Not catching up wid u ( ain't able to write nythgh)
2- For severe personal reasons which are totally (and absolutely) difficult to explain and which made me in a state of hibernation ,rather thoughtlessness .It simply means that i was busy doing nothing!!
But Im coping up wid the "not so good" Time...starting to raise hope for the best out of everything .
As on now I've decided that all the actions following will follow TATA ( Think and think again) and at the same time thinking that to think that way ain't make life boring!



The world is still beautiful..Isn't it?(Im still a lil shaky to think that way but yes ...all of us deserve the better and b'ful part of life more thn any other)

India Lift the Nehru cup

It got me thrilling.. we went camp nou ( Barcelona FC home ground), ppl said its a wastage of money to get trained there. Now same ppl find themselves spellbound when team performance spoke.
Yess .. we won it n it was a delight to all :)
n yesss.. we badly need proper training facilities ....its such a pity not to have a single well equipped training spot in entire country...

Unaccustomed Earth : Jhumpa Lahiri

This book preceding THE NAMESAKE by the author Jhumpa Lahiri and is a collection of short stories beautifully depicting the friction b/w two cultures trying to go parallel with each other.
the diffrnt short stories are --
Unaccustomed Earth // Hell-Heaven //A Choice of Accommodations // Only Goodness // Nobody's Business // Hema and Kaushik
The book has made to " 10 best books in 2008"... in US of A....
Though I feel... we at India are far unaccustomed to receive her messages fully....
I liked one para which conveys ..
"For Human race to progress, they must face the Unaccustomed earth !! " citing the example of farming the same crop on same field again n again can only reduce yield :) ...

Where ROME was lost and won: UEFA champions league

The last time I wrote for this.. Man U came out as winner. They were the winner amongs equal,the other side being Chelsea.That result was neither a
great sight for the russian(Owner of Chelsea) nor to myself specially when they loose title in Russia itself.This time the better, the fanatstic and the beautiful came out to held hand on the glitzy Champions league trophy.Barca stick to the plans they are best at.. maintained possession , made fine passes and were great in midfield.
Xavi and Ineista were no lesser to Man U , electrifying Messi( Man of the Match) was also instrumental.ManU experimented with the formation only to get unbalanced . The Ronaldo effect was subdued by lack of support from midfield.Infact Barca won it more in midfield itself.
Rome was not that thundurous blame it to majority of complacent ManU supporters who only came to watch an anticipated victory and could not inspire and motivate their side up in the downturn when ManU were lagging after 10 mins.
btw I like one …

'Safe' climate means no to coal

'Safe' climate means 'no to coal'
Coal is one of the largest contributor to CO2 emissions along with fossil fuels.It took us 250 years to burn the first half trillion of it , and on current projections we'll burn the next half trillion in less than 40 years.About three-quarters of the world's fossil fuel reserves must be left unused if society is to avoid dangerous climate change, scientists warn.More than 100 nations support the goal of keeping temperature rise below 2C. But the scientists say that without major curbs on fossil fuel use, 2C will probably be reached by 2050. Writing in Nature, they say politicians should focus on limiting humanity's total output of CO2 rather than setting a "safe" level for annual emissions. "To avoid dangerous climate change, we will have to limit the total amount of carbon we inject into the atmosphere, not just the emission rate in any given year,"The UN climate convention, agreed at the 1992 Rio Earth…

Wanderlust over...feels satiated after a trip to Nainitaal, Jim Corbett National park

For past few days I have been wondering why am I feeling a lil heavy in my mind... n I consulted to the doc with in myself... It was a disease called wanderlust.
Came weekend and there I was..in the Jungle.. the Jim Corbett national park.. the serene , calm wild spreading arms for like 1500 sqkms.Even though it wasn't the best time to visit the place(usually happens to be after monsoon).. it was satisfying to my senses.The wanderlust aint over but I felt relieved....
seems like a nice idea for future camping!! ready?

I was not judging the book by its cover

a week for sportbuffs

Last week was filled with a lot of action for the people who follow Tennis and football. In tennis they witnessed two mega matches in Australian open Rafael nadal Vs Verdasco ( semi) and Rafa Vs Federar in final. Both are memorable one specially the moment came after federar started tearing down.
In BPL , Liverpool took on Chelsea only to beat them 2-0. Away match aint working for Chelsea these days. They gotta improve alot as the still have little hope to make a comeback.
I loved the news about inclusion of Qurasma into the squad. Guess he'll make the difference and we will see Chelsea playing the same b'ful game.
Still there is a lot of action to watch for...
