Idea for a Talented & Brand New Indian Team

Why don't we invite all players of Indian Origin from other teams to emigrate to India and play for India? This way we would have the best team of international class professional players with Indian sounding names representing India and also beating the crap out of Bangladesh, Burma, Ethiopia etc...

I feel, the ideal Indian team would be

Shivnarine Chanderpaul (C)
Ramnaresh Sarwan
Monty Panesar
Ravi Bopara
Jeetan Patel
Danish Kaneria
Denesh Ramdhin
S Dhaniram
U Bhatti
NS Poonia
Ravindu Shah
T Mishra

Why they would come to India?
1) Huge Money Ofcourse
2) Celebrity like status
3) Additional income in terms of Ad contracts and other endorsement contracts
4) Better than doing their jobs in their respective countries and playing part time cricket

Where is Sehwag ki Maa..when you need her the most?

India lost to Bangladesh today and faces the prospect of early elimination from the world cup. It wouldn't have happened if somebody showed up on a cell phone...

In 2003 we reached the finals because of her...
See this great clip from 2003 and relive those great days when we used to win matches against England, Namibia, Bhutan, Burma etc

Monday, March 05, 2007 - Voice based music search

I came across this website which allows you to search for a song by using your voice. You dont need to know the lyrics. Just the tune.
Sing with made up words or just hum and Midomi search engine matches your recording and comes up remarkably accurate results. One does not have to be a great singer also to get a successful match.
Once you find a match you can hear how Midomi matched your voice by checking matched entries. You can purchase the track right there.
Pretty cool idea. I guess this would be a candidate for Google or Apple to buy out if it becomes successful.

Why I hate HOLI!!!

I am a South Indian and I HATE Holi !!!
1) People come barging into your house without notice and destroy your carpet & floor
2) It screws up your clothes
3) Causes irritation to your eyes
4) The color does not go away for days and your ears and face are red. And you instantly become a Red Indian.
5) And all this on a Sunday..I am happy with my HOLIday already and I don't need another reason for celebrating this day !!!!!
