Still infamous, after all these years

When I studied in Mangalore, Government College was notorious for the antics of its students.
Though, it has changed its name to University College, it's good to see that the students haven't changed a lot.

Mutual fundas from ET

It's been a long time since I visited my favourite newspaper. But they never disappoint.

Beats me!

India's selection of the supersub for the Lahore ODI beats me. If India were planning to chase after winning the toss, they should have chosen a supersub based on that strategy. So, typically you would have wanted a batsman, say, Raina to be the supersub.

But, no, they pick Zaheer as the supersub. And, now, having picked him and having won the toss, they will have to figure out how to play him without weakening the batting. Obviously, there's no way he is going to get his full quota if they sub him in for another bowler.

Update: Prithvi posts exactly the same thoughts on his blog. It's not as uncanny as you would imagine. It's just the logical thing to do.

A 1000 dollars for the taking...

If you can prove that the earth revolves around the sun.


Hold the press!

Typos can be a pain, as the Bush administration is discovering.


Publish and apologise

The Patna edition of the Times of India publishes the cartoons about Prophet Mohammed, and ends up apologising all over the place.

Radio Gaga

They call it the social music revolution. I say pretty cool!
Enjoy the music.


Where did radical come from?

A Boston Globe columnist takes off on the protests around the world against the cartoons of Prophet Mohammed published in a Danish newspaper to paint a scary picture of what's to come.

"...Hindus may consider it odious to use cows as food, but they do not resort to boycotts, threats, and violence when non-Hindus eat hamburger or steak. They do not demand that everyone abide by the strictures of Hinduism and avoid words and deeds that Hindus might find upsetting. The same is true of Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Mormons: They don't lash out in violence when their religious sensibilities are offended. They certainly don't expect their beliefs to be immune from criticism, mockery, or dissent.

"But radical Muslims do."

Wonder why the author added the adjective radical to Muslims but left it out of Hindus, Christians, Jews etc?


All in the family

Prithviraj Hegde, who outranks me in the family by four years, has started a cricket blog over at Rediff iLand.

Funny, not ha ha

I hate to do this to you, but here's more nonsense from what's fast becoming my favourite newspaper.

What in the world is it doing here?

Comparisons are odious

Former Miss India and jewellery designer Naina Balsavar says the demolition of malls in Delhi on Wednesday is a "9/11 for all of us with shops here".
