Flags Fluttering everywhere as team INDIA captured Twenty20 Cup. I'm very happy as every INDIAN. Joy would have been doubled if Mr.Wall captured the previous shorter version of the game. Not many supported the INDIAN outfit when they started the campaign - but that is when I backed them as I did for Dravid in his lean patch. The habit of not supporting "A PERSON WHEN HE NEEDED MOST" is what happening in reality when otherwise would do a lot of wonders. Not once INDIA came out of the brink of defeat to victory - it was 4 matches in a row, yes they were awesome as an unit, brought back the cricket crazy fans back to their feet and b4 TV and many companies even lost their man hours - like Rajeev's.
INDIAN team was showered with MONEY and ONLY MONEY - for they have done a clean job , BUT is it something no one has achieved it b4 ? NO - Aussies are making it a ROUTINE - Only if they lose it's becoming a NEWS. Then why this kind of euphoria when INDIAN team wins it ? Is it cos INDIANS win it after 22 years(Meaning they are inconsistent) and not many world beaters in other sports ? Why people throng their stars only when they win and not when they lose? Haven't these people never lost anything in their life and craved for support? Only when DOMESTIC is stabilised we will be a team to beat like AUSSIES now and WINDIES in yester years or else it will be a one of situation for another decade and so called fans will turn their back in No time.
YES only when attitude changes and visionaries comeup INDIA will be a DEVELOPED NATION in 2020 rather than DEVELOPING NATION by then . Lets carry on this fire on all cylinders to make INDIA a country to live in, an economy to compete with, and FORCE TO RECKON IN ALL Departments - Take Defeat in Stride But Never Lose the Lessons from the Loss - as OUR INDIAN team did !! 3 Cheers to Young Guns headed by Dhoni !!

A Silver Jubilee is a time to look back and thank every person who has contributed and a time to pause and reflect on all the good work done.

A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint.... What I began by reading, I must finish by acting. ~Henry David Thoreau
A post on books - a long pending one in my blog. Yes I have very recently inculcated this habit of reading books, tho' my mom has stressed this from my childhood. Mom for your relentless try - I have picked the books in my hands " On My Own" without any compulsion from any exams, marks or staffs. Yes atlast I'm realising the value of books and they are becoming my part of lifestyle. Some of the experiences which I have gone through in life is already written by someone who has written it in a way I have experinced - What a feeling to rejoice the moments when we read those kind of lines ? And some of the books are real eye opener for reasons which we experience only when WE READ !!! Yes I thank myself for having picked up this habit offlate. Some of my recent reads are as below,
1) Go Getter - Peter B Hyne - A must read book for any person.
2) Monk Who sold His Ferrari - Robin Sharma - A lovely narration of Life.
3) Wings Of Fire - APJ. Abdul Kalam - Man of Positives.
4) Straight From the Gut - Jack Welch - A life lived and breathed in G.E.
5) More Than a Hobby - David Green - About a retail chain - HOBBY LOBBY.
6) Execution - Larry Bossidy & Ram Charan - As name suggests its all about execution of plans.
7) FedX - Ram Charan - About FedEx
8) 7 Day Weekend - Ricardo Semler - A Company like this in the world - I wud like to work !!
9) Road Less Traveled - Scott - i felt it as dry book.
10) Power Of Now - Current Read - Just started .....
