october kitchadi ...

weeks after obama was severely snubbed in denmark, thanks to olympics 2016. another european country, norway decided the guy is not bad after all and decided to offer the highest honour award one can imagine. mr.president was very gracious and humble in accepting the award.internet was set ablaze when the news came out, there was one comment i liked the most. //Fourth US President to win a Nobel, first to get one BEFORE he does anything//.

i must admit i am starting to enjoy the champions league t20 tournament happening in india, only because in the first week all the indian teams were dusted and brought to ground, when i imagine the amount of money spent on indian teams, and compare the same with other teams. does money destroy talent ? . in soccer i guess the most costliest teams are invariably table toppers. whereas in cricket mumbai, kolkatta..costliest teams have always fought only for wooden spoon. does this mean these business guys did not know where to put the money? or cricket is a game where you can have bunch of talented players and still lose.

two IPL teams have apparoached steve waugh for a coaching assignment, the guy very famous for his social cause and charity work in kolkataa declined the offer, only because he didn't want his charity work to be affected, i am not here to compare him with other indian players who only come in news for the record's they are setting in marketing deal's. charity is one thing you are not supposed to compare or speak out loud, a fmaous phrase for charity "your left hand should not know what your right hand has given" yet, for me guys like steve waugh are real cricketing legends.

there was a quiz i asked in my earlier post, answers are given below.
1. photo of udham singh when he was arrested in england. he ws the person who assasinated dyer for avenging jalian wallabagh massacare. he was also closely assosciated with bhagat singh.

2. the paper photo was blank editorial of indian express when emergeny was declared by indhira gandhi.

3."Babe" Didrikson Zaharias. In the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics, she won two gold medals in the javelin and the 80m hurdles event. In High jump category, the judges, however, disallowed her jumping style (jumping over headfirst) in the final tie breaker jump. And she was stripped of Gold medal for high jump. But strangely she was allowed to keep the silver medal. Pic 3 shows The Babe Didrikson Zaharias Museum in Beaumont which is also the chamber of commerce welcoming center.

4.Brand Obama (connection)
Yes Pecan’ in support of Obama(Yes We Can) during his campaign.Pepsi had temporarily changed its logo in the U.S to support Obama.Ikea too launched an ‘Embrace the Change’ campaign inspired by Obama

IPL is spending the money for the famous players and their teams, and in my opinion if the player is famous then he is talented. Having said that, there are also lot's of talented players who didn't get enough fame..

May be one day the best team will be paid more, but unfortunately it's not easy to find the best team in T20 cricket format. Any team can become a best team in one season, so it's not going to be like a football club matches.

Regarding SW, he was great player during his days and he is great human being.
