Sourav Ganguly,the former Indian captain spoke to NDTVSports in an exclusive chat during the Champions Trophy semifinal between India and Sri Lanka in Cardiff on June 20 where he revealed he hates being compared with Dhoni and as he feels players of different era played under different situations and conditions hence cannot be compared. He also said Dhoni is a Terrific Captain and has lot of cricket in him even now ! 🙂
No matter , how much we argue and claim Dhoni is better captain than dada aka Sourav Ganguly, one thing is undeniable, there is one thing which only dada could do and no one else –During the final match of the 2002 NatWest Trophy held in Lords,England after a stunning performance by team mates Yuvraj Singh and Md Kaif , Ganguly took off his shirt in public and waved it in the air to celebrate India’s win( It was a statement to the world of cricket) and was later condemned for jeopardizing Lords protocol and cricket. No matter what, Sourav Ganguly taught Team India to stare into the eyes of the opponent and do not go by names of the opponent or the place they were playing in. Today the confidence which we see in Team India’s each and every player is a gift of Sourav Ganguly to Indian Cricket,I firmly believe.
Difference between Dhoni and Ganguly,as per me- Dhoni has attitude and Dada had attitude problem and both rock 😀
What do you say friends ?
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi flew into Uttarakhand on Monday to survey the rescue and relief operations and spent the night at a base camp. While the BJP has been asking why was Rahul late in visiting the flood hit areas of Uttarakhand, the Congress Spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary said Rahul Gandhi is not a ‘Rambo’.He has gone to survey the flood-hit area as a common citizen. The Rambo word was used targeting Narendra Modi, who had entered the flood-hit area accompanied by bureaucrats and evacuated 15000 people from his state in chartered helicopter and luxury buses.
Well, who would have hated such a real-life Rambo in moments of crises ?
Due to rain , the final match between England and India in the Champions Trophy 2013 was minimized to 20 overs from 50.India batted first and scored 130 runs and while the English gave a last ball fight, could not make 130 runs and lost the match.
In between the rescue operations , both Congress and BJP has chosen to politically utilize the situation while blaming each other of doing so. Uttarakhand has been hit by heavy flood due to torrential rains, resulting which, thousands of pilgrims and locals are left at the mercy of rescue team.The brutal flow of water has ransacked roads and houses and everything possible in its way.The Kedarnath Temple has been effected a lot.Above 100 are feared dead.Meanwhile,Gujarat CM, Narendra Modi visited the flood hit area on helicopter.Home Minister Union was quick enough to point out,only State CM should do aerial surveys while Congress’ Digvijaya Singh had already criticized Modi’s aerial survey. BJP on the other hand is giving Congress a hard time due to Rahul Gandhi’s absence in yet another crises.

Over 5000 pilgrims in Kedarnath and 15000 in Badrinath are amid heavy flood in Uttarkhand.All in all,60000 people in the state of Uttarakhand remain stranded with over 100 people dead and more feared.The Army is on its rescue operation and the torrential rains which caused the flood have calmed down only recently.
Praying Rain Gods calm down and allow rescue operations bring pilgrims and the state back to normalcy.

Needless to ask, do you know Hafiz Saeed ?? Still, let me remind,he is the prime-accused to have masterminded ‘Mumbai attacks in 2008’ . The kingpinof Mumbai attacks, flaunts his freedom in Pakistan.With the Nawaz Sharif government taking over Pakistan’s governance , some people may be hopeful of Indo-Pak ties taking some positive shape,yet again. But! Here comes the shocker for the optimistic and peace loving brains of India –Pakistan Govt has given aid of Rs 61 million to Hafiz Saeed for continuing welfare services . Yes!! Welfare!! 😀 😀
“Congratulations! Mr Saeed !!”
Is there anything else peace loving Indians can do other than congratulating him? 🙁
