Back to blogging after a long time.....

I have been pretty lazy in getting back to blogging....but finally I decided write something....

The semester is coming to an end and I am kind of getting busy as I have to wrap up a couple of things before I go to India....I am all excited this time as I am going for my sister's wedding...there is not much shopping to do except for my sis and my would be jiju...and a couple of things that my friends wanted....

I watched the India-Pak series (only the last 3 one-days) on a website called Desi-media.net. It was a a horrible experience as we watched it into the wee hours staying up late and our team kept disappointing us with their brilliant performance....it was frustrating to watch India lost match after match to an under-strength PAK team....the fact that our bowler's could bowl well on home fields makes me wonder how they would perform abroad...the selectors should seriously consider other options for bowling if the current players are not doing well...Sehwag thought that he played well in the Tests and the first 2 one-days so he can throw his wicket away....SRT felt that he performed with the ball in the first game and then scored a 100 in the 4th so his job is done....except for the 100 he looked out of sorts in the middle....then came our man of the moment...Mr. Dada ganguly....what can we say about this once good batsman but now a sitting duck....I dont know what happened to him for this tranfomration to happen bt right now he doesnt deserve to be on the team after the performance he put up in the last series.....he should go back to the drawing board and figure out his flaws like how Dravid did after he was criticized and dropped from the One-day team, can you even imagine a team without him (Dravid) now....it would be a disaster in waiting...there would be an instant collapse 50-70% of the time India would have batted....people will say he wasnt outstanding in this series...he didnt get an MOM....scores a century but doesnt get the award (they could have shared it)...dhoni scores a century who was at the other end supporting him ???....who saved us in the 5th game with kaif ???... Yuvraj was a disappointment...and kaif was partially successful in the limited chances that he had....Dhoni was good but his temperment needs some work...you just cant blast everyball....the rest of them less said the better....

Had gone to Raleigh, North Carolina for visit a couple of friends (Nisha and Amol)...over the last weekend of spring break (Apr 2nd weekend)...it was long drive and I was the only one driving as Sindhu didnt have her license to drive....Raleigh trip was nice as we had fun together and didnt try to do too many things....went out for 2-3 hrs a day and ate at home and watched some movies together....it was general TP nothing out of the world....but that according to me is quality time spent with friends as we get to talk and have fun instead of going on 8-9 hr site-seeing expeditions....

The weather has been pretty crappy....can you believe it ....we had snow in the 4th week of april and we are having sleet (ice and rain) in the first week of may!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that is what I call typical Ohio-weather....it had already ruined the start of the cricket season...but hopefully it will get better and we will have a great season...

Watched a movie called SAHARA.....thought it was about treasure hunt and was expecting to see some stunning discoveries and chases like in Indiana Jones...but to my disappointment it was only as good as any second grade Hollywood movie...some of the scenes even reminded me of Mithun-starers !!!!!!!!!! All in all I was extremely disappointed and will think twice before spending my hard-earned money on such movies...I have to settle a score with my friend KG on this matter...he said it was a good movie...wait till I meet him....

I have been very unlucky with the injuries aspect....the Cricket season hasnt even started and I have injured myslef quite a lot....first got hit on the Chest playing cricket, then got hit by a soccer ball on my thigh when I was just passing a bunch of guys playing soccer...it left a black mark...and it still hurts (been a month).....then slipped and fell from the treadmill....skin on my left knee was scrapped pretty bad thought i was healing from all these then I dropped a weight on my index finger and nearly crushed it....right now its better but it still hurts to bend the finger....I also sprained my back somehow...and I had to stop lifting ab crunches and also had to slow down in running...it stinks!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate injuries.....but I am glad that all tehse happened after the Racquetball intramural....I played in the tournament after a long time...its been 2 yrs since I have stopped competing in State and NAtional tournaments so I thought its OK for me to play in the school tournament....last couple of years I didnt take part as I thought it was unfair to play against people who are novices....but I saw some people take part in some of the sports this year even when they are actively taking part in ranking tournaments....so I decided to compete...it was fun except for a match against Giri...he irritated and annoyed me a lot with unsportsmanly like behavior.....but I made it past him and went on to win the tournament....I got a t-shirt as the prize!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sindhu finally got her driving license...it happened yesterday....after 3 unsuccessful attempts she finally cleared the driving test....it was quite a relief for her (and me) as it was her last attempt ...had she failed she would have had to wait for 6 months before getting another shot at the license....she is very relieved and treated herself to a mini-ipod!!!!!!! it arrived today (actually she bought it a week ago:))

I think i will have to stop here....and continue in my next post so people dont get too bored and I too will have something to write in my next post:):)

11 days for my India trip...............
