Vishwaroopam banned in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh

A few groups of minorities have forced Kamal Haasan’s ‘Vishwaroopam’ be banned in Tamil Nadu and then Andhra Pradesh citing ‘showing of Muslims and Islam in bad light in the movie’ as the reason ! Kamal Haasan is of the belief that a few handful of Muslims cannot represent the whole community and protest on behalf of them and also that his movie has nothing which would offend sentiments of Muslims rather would make them proud.

Interestingly, the government of the Center or States do not take strict steps against these few hardliners who become the self-proclaimed saviour of religion and take decisions on behalf of the community. Should not art and literature be left out of political and vested interest and an artist or a thinker be allowed to express ? Well, that’s a tricky question to answer when it comes to religion because most of us identify ourselves on the basis of religion , caste and birthplace than as human beings, first . 🙂

India looses to Pakistan at Eden Gardens

Chasing an achievable score of 251 made by Pakistan in the 2nd ODI at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens,Team India collapsed at 165 all out,allowing Pakistan a series win (Pakistan wins 2 out of 3 match series) and helping Pakistan retain the record of being unbeatable for India at Eden Gardens .

While,England’s tour to India and a massive Test Series victory over India raised questions on M.S.Dhoni’s ability to captain all three formats and critics claiming a new captain for Test Formats , the One Day Series loss at home by Pakistan may put Dhoni’s captaincy, in all formats, under clouds of strong criticisms!

Just a thought,what might Didi tell Dhoni after Team India’s loss at Eden 🙂

Sachin retires from One Day Cricket

While there was news about Sachin willing to play the upcoming series with Pakistan,a sudden announcement made thereafter by the Batting Legend about his retirement from One-Day Cricket is shocking for both the set of people who argue in favour of Sachin playing till he wants and the ones who always felt its high time he quits.

Seems like ‘God’ has lost to the continuous bad patch and ageing issues, while playing, or is it the B.C.C.I. which has asked Master Blaster,Sachin Tendulkar,to declare his retirement, at least, from One-Day Cricket due to his and also Team India’s continuous deteriorating performance ?

No matter what, it is the end of a legacy in One-Day Indian and World Cricket because Sachin Tendulkar is irreplaceable !

Ganguly's column on Sachin's future and Dhoni's workload

Sourav Ganguly has written a column on Sachin’s future and Dhoni’s workload.Well,while there is no denial,he is worth discussing about Sachin’s and Dhoni’s future,seems, no one is bothered about Ganguly’s future in Indian Cricket though he has expressed his desire many a times to be the coach of Team India.

After India has lost against England in the Test Series,there has been questions raised on Dhoni’s captaincy and Sachin’s unwillingness to retire!

Dhoni lodges complaint with BCCI against Gambhir

M.S.Dhoni,the Team India captain, is of the idea that Gautam Gambhir is playing a self-centered game and has been bothered about his position in the Team and has not been playing keeping the interest of team in mind.Dhoni has lodged a complaint against Gautam Gambhir with the BCCI,regarding the same!

Well, is it just an excuse to divert criticisms against himself or a genuine feedback about Gambhir,only Dhoni knows but this clearly shows that the continued criticism of ‘Captain Cool’ and his captaincy has snatched away the peace of his mind and now he is in a defensive mood.Anyways,no one in Team India is Sachin Tendulkar that his position in Team India would be guaranteed for lifetime. 🙂

Sachin Tendulkar’s fluctuating future ?

After a disastrous loss of Team India in the second test against England,Master-Blaster,Sachin Tendulkar, is under severe pressure.His performance with the bat has turned real bad and its been 6 innings since consecutively,where he could not perform at all!  Speculations are being made that the BCCI selectors had a word with Sachin on his performance and while Sachin Tendulkar has left the decision on the selectors,they,on the other hand,showed confidence in him !

A decade back, the same name-Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar was termed ‘One Man Army’ of Team India,who helped Team India win many matches,single-handedly. It is the same legendary cricketer whose presence in the team makes almost no difference.

Is it just a ‘long bad patch’  of Sachin,as explained by Sunil Gavaskar or is it all over for the 39 year old legend of legends ? 🙁
