Indian Premier League ( IPL)

Indian Premier League ( IPL)


IPL is back with its sixth season,more action more glamour more money and more entertainment. A tournament for shorter form of cricket i.e T-20 is very famous throughout Indian subcontinent and most parts of the world. It brings world together on one stage just for cricket and spirit of the game. New talents from India which struggle throughout there life for name and fame gets it here instantly if they have skills in them,money they get is much higher as compare to Ranji Trophy and other such local tournaments in the country. This also promotes the concept of One World, it washes away regionalism as a player from one region plays for a team of other region or state and cheered by the people for his cricketing skills. With IPL cricket has reached new heights,those who don't like to watch it before now eagerly waits for it. We have got new stars like Yousuf Pathan,Shikhar Dhawan,Ravindra Jadeja,etc from this. It has also helped in removing rivalry of Harbhajan Singh and Andrew Symonds as they both played for the same team.

But as I also look at the other side of the things,it has reduced players as mere commodities to be sold and bid for money,I must mention that there are reports of match fixings, as so much money is involved in it there are possibilities of more such incidents,also where there is money there is politics Kochi team was discontinued after brief introduction due to political involvement in this team,after much parties are reported with incidents of eve teasing and molestation,drunken players and team owners also came under scrutiny for there behaviour and Shah Rukh Khan's ban from Wankhede Stadium is an example of this.There are tax issues with teams and game is played for not winning or loosing but for profit and loss,the loss has made owners of Team Hyderabad to leave it for some other company.

 Moreover I would like to say that in spite of pros and cons of IPL it is an family event, a carnival like situation where for two and a half months people really get glued to it and often get relief from there boring day to day life and useless serials on TV and remember this year SIRF DEKHNKA NAHI, get up and  Jhampak Jhapak Jhampak

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

RIP Tom Alter

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
