An evening at Laltibba


Writing a blog on my mobile at 7000 ft above sea level with a stunningly colourful view of himalayas in the background and bun-butter-tea in front of me. Can life be any better? Unfortunately yes :( and thats cos I am missing good company ...

That's not fair

It's 11.30 at night. Kolkata Knight Riders need 6 of 6 balls. Can they do it? I'll bite them if they don't. Even the most anti-KKR fan wouldn't have the heart to see them go down thrice in three games - all of them close like hairline. A blogger has aptly remarked - with KKR the match is not over until its over.

These last few days of IPL were not good for weak hearts. One match after another has found me on the edge of my couch biting my nails at frantic pace. Unfortunately KKR has been not mostly but everytime at the receiving end.

It's 4 of 3 balls now. Anybody watching this game wouldn't believe that this team has already 185 runs on board. It must be those excrutiatingly painful losses in last couple of games that is blinding them.

3 of 2 balls now...

Age old wisdom

Received fresh from dad today :) thought I should jot it down...

काक् चेष्ठा, बको: ध्यानम्, श्वान निद्रा तथैव च: ।
अल्पहारी, गृह-त्यागी, विद्यार्थी पंचम लक्षणम् ॥

In a game where numbers mean everything and nothing, this one figure stands apart as a reminder to everyone that nothing is impossible. This number is the mantra that generates hope and audacity even to the most down-trodden.
