Back after a busy long weekend; Spent most of the time in the Studio, did manage to watch NFL and few movies on SunTV.

Sathyaraj’s spoof movie “மஹா நடிகன்” was shown on Sun TV. It was funny in places. However the irony was, just the day before [Friday] Sun TV Aired “வில்லாதி வில்லன்”, Satya Raj in triple torture mode. Man! The movie reaches its heights in the climax. GowndaMani roles over the ground for about a mile escaping 200 plus police men firing about 20,000 rounds at him for 2 minutes. But still Gowndersir escapes like a circus bear on motor bike, then jumps up and puts a gun on the judge. Forces him to change his recent judgement, he then apologizes and escapes with Satyaraj number 2 to save his girl friend from Satya raj number 3, btw: the Girl friend is daughter of Satyaraj number one who like his script spends most of the movie time on a wheel chair. Ayya Revolutionary Promise! this movie contained materials for about 10 or more spoof movies. I don’t know why the வில்லாதி வில்லன் Script was not considered while writing Maha Nadigan. Having worked more than 60% movies in this illogical fashion Mr. PromiseRaj sitting tight in a glass house has real guts to make a parody. I wish people make more parody movies in Tamil.

As expected Dada is back! I was surprised to see Parthiv Patel. Selectors dropped the Tamil Nadu wicket keeper batsmen Dinesh Kartik citing Dhonis performance in recent times. But they have picked up Parthiv Patel as a back up keeper. I feel Dinesh Kartik should be the automatic backup keeper. Dinesh! It is about time to change your name to Dineshukar and migrate some where to west side of India. Board has been unfair to this player from Tamil Nadu. Dada is not out of Controversy; Mr. More is upset about Gangully missing Ranji games for Bengal. It seems he was not exempted to miss the state games.

On Saturday I was on the DC’s popular Indian TV show “Darshan”, they interviewed and discussed about my musical efforts and my latest music album H1bees. Thanks to Alisha Thomas for the interview opportunity.

This morning Washington Post carried an Article on Call centers Written by Mitra Kalita. Also check the audio post on Indian club music by Mitra Kalita. Interesting.

Good day.


Yep! We won and moved up to number 2 position in the ICC ranking. Sri Lankans were beaten by real class, it is time to pull their socks, Jayasuriya has been recalled. I would suggest changing their captain. Sri Lanka needs to think outside Vaas and Murali. But hey why should I care.

Arun Lal struggled initially to carry the award show but soon came back to his gears. Sehwag spoke all smiling about his Team and the whole effort in broken English, Harbajan Man of the match and Kumble, the man of the series were given TV’s. What next! - Indian team will be touring Pakistan next month, Sehwag has to come good at least in Pakistan to maintain is reputation. Kaif should be dropped, Gautham Gambheer should also get the axe but Board will given him one more chance, frankly I would give one more chance to Gangully. What ever all said and done the same team will can tour Pakisthan. We never know the board and its stink tank.
Mr. More, the instant selection expert was seen sitting next Chappel and discussing something. Topic: Who will get the pink slip? Must be “Tamarind Dissolving” feeling for Kaif and Gambheer. Let us wait and see, bottom line the tour depends on how top order [Dravid, Sachin, VVS, Sehwag] performs.

Enough of Cricket, let me jump to some Extempore music!.

Yesterday evening, I was practicing by playing some music at random; yes I do practice piano or keyboards whenever I feel like. I came up with a mix;, the basic rule I followed while writing this score was to just play what ever occurred in my mind, I should not go back and correct musical parts based on theory or progressions or popularity or any other factor. No retakes also - live performance, directly drop the score on the sequencer from my head via my fingers that travels over 5 octaves of my MotifES and Korg Triton This is what I got, check it out!..

Indians were 287 for 9 at close, 479 runs ahead. Harbajan and Kumble were nitpicking the Lankans and were unbeaten, an very important over night stay, now Indians gets to choose the type of roller for the morning session. Roll heavy!

Sachin gets a dubious decision in about every 4 innings. It was about time he got one, Umpire Ghauri did the needful. Sachin was playing quite well, just then a ball that pitched on off and middle bounced more than expected clearly going about the stumps stuck around his hip area, He was ruled LBW by the umpire. Ridicules!.

Sehwag got out in the first ball of the innings. He played a reckless one day stroke and was caught right royally by the 3rd man. Someone had a banner in the stadium listing a “New Indian team”, Sehwag was the 12th man and opening slot was given to Pathan and Dhoni. When it comes to opinions, we Indians are first to let it out boldly. There was also a message for Mr. Kiran More.

Yuvraj saved the day, after a duck in the first innings he came good with an excellent knock and set India towards the victory path. Kaif was pathetic in spite of hitting a six; he kept dancing around the pitch. His batting looked as though it was brain dead, someone had to just cut the food tube, Whew! Bandra and the umpire pulled the tube. What ever!, he deserved to be dropped. Gambheer the opener tried his best, at an average of around 10.change - a 10 second decision for Mr. More and Co. “DROP HIM!” [Read it using ESPN's Chris Burman’s style - FUMBLE!]

Inconsistent Agarkar played quite well and renewed his all rounder title till 2007 while Irfan got some runes and applied for the all rounder title.

Commentators: Why can’t they pick better commentators? The present group is totally boring, and most the time the commentators read from the screen captions Duh! Can’t we see it? I have no offence to the Sri Lankan Commentators, still I cannot take it more, they are so biased at times they come up with some fantastic crap. TWI=Total Waste International? Poor English presented well can be taken but poor presentation be it in English, Hindi, Tamil, Tulu ,Gujarathi or Konkini – TGS [தாங்கலடா சாமி]

479 in the 4th innings is a big “ask” for any team, however I will keep my fingers crossed and hope for an Indian victory.

PS::My name has been added to the IMDB, thanks to Arun Vaidyanathan for this addition, he made sure my name appears in IMDB.com. He sent them all the details about me and my studio. A pleasure to work with directors who takes care of his crew.
Arun! Thanks!


Gangully gets supports from all quarters; this time is not only a Bengal affair, whole country is behind Gangully today. Lok Sabha to take this for discussion . This clearly speaks about Gangully’s popularity and his contribution to the team.

The selectors have stated there will be no reversal of decisions, this is bull #1, thinking about the Indian selection process, and selector’s qualification, the so called selection panel’s experience in the sport is almost 70% lesser than the players they select or drop. The reason is the post is an honorary job; hence there are no talented folks to take it up. Talent does not come free. What the heck, why don’t you pay them? BCCI earning – the world knows how much money they make; how can an organization survive on honorary posts to pick a team that would serve as a national pride? Once a responsible job becomes a service, right away about 90% of the candidates they get will be well below par, because they will not be called for any other job. A half baked group simply rushes to occupy jobs in spite of knowing their caliber.

Today, Mr. Kiran More’s claims, selectors and the panel are focused on taking India to next level. I like to know what the next level is. I remember the story of Frog in the well. A frog born, bought up and spoilt in a well, can think only within the boundaries of the well. The truth here is the selection panel is made up ex-cricketers and few other CEO-Cymbals [aka jalra to the CEO] . We cannot expect anything technical from the Cymbal side of the table, and the pity is the so called cricketers on other side of table have played very minimal cricket to realize the so called next level. The coach and the captain are not given a free hand and they should not open anything to the public. Their hands are tied right royally here.

Yesterday the BCCI CEO mentions that he had no clue about the decision of sacking Gangully, he came to know it via TV, - More and Co says this decision was based on performance and young blood in the team - If Gangully has been dropped based on poor performance, then why in the hell Agarkar is retained till date in spite of tons of mediocre inconsistent performance?
The coach – the day he came in we had problems, Checking his past, he does not have a clean chit, after all he is an player who asked his brother to roll the last ball, and gave a reason that his mind was not in the proper place at that time., meaning, called himself a madcap.

Indian played badly in Sri Lanka, yes top players were not in form, we had a bad time, this is the first time Gangully’s captaincy seemed to slip. However his poor batting form was used in targeting him. Coach to save his lucrative position, he complained about the captain, calls Gangully “insane”, went a step ahead and complained about his predecessor John Wright. After the Email episode subsided, he shows fingers to cricket crazy fans of India, later after a day; his ass gets covered by a lie “nursing injured hand”. Frankly if you ask me, he was let go of the hook in this issue, everyone forgot about it. Today, there are rumors that Chappell’s view was the main cause for sending him home.

Chappell’s complained about the bad boy Gangully, is it, let us rewind Chappell’s background. He has zero experience in being an International coach. The local team he coached was nothing commendable, I really doubt if Chappell knew about Gangully contribution to the team till date. imo, He is currently enjoying a free on Dravid’s expertise Coach as of now thinks that he is bigger than Indian cricket, it is matter of time for Indian cricket to pull him down to eat his own words, mark this.You may ask me what agenda he has to distort dada, well! time will expose the agenda.

For dada, please improve your service to the nation - please write a book about the internal functionalities, hungama’s and affairs of BCCI, a black box no ex-cricketer have dared to expose, you can, you have nothing to loose.


வன்ஜத்தில் விழுந்தாய்யடா!

The Irony of the year, Indian Captain Rahul Dravid named Gangully as one of the main contributors in India’s victory over Sri Lanka, but something happened in the next 1800 seconds, Gangully gets the pink slip from the selection committee. Today BCCI president expressed shock over dropping Gangully; he also denied any senior board member interference. It seems the Mr. Pawar got the news from the TV. Duh! How can the so called selection committee never bother to inform the president when making an important decision? Gangully has severed Indian team for quite some time. Firing him is a major decision. How can this happen without the consent of team think tanks, board presidents, members etc. This is a clear case of personal vendetta and motivated from outside.

The irony #2 a former captain who revolutionized the team with commendable performances at home and aboard gets sacked by so called selection committee in which majority of the members have never seen triple figure mark in their test cricketing life. Pathetic! Gangully return to the India side is very remote; this might be end of the road for Dada. The only console at this time is - He is not first and he will not be the last to get such raw deals from these unscrupulous, politically governed so called BCCI selection process scheme. Sachin, Dravid, VVS, Sehwag – be prepared.

    ப கு க த

    1)“We have a player (Yuvraj) who is doing better. It is not fair to drop him” ,
    2)“What we felt was that Yuvraj is in good form and we are looking at future”,
    3)The situation is that I don't want Ganguly at number six.

    A clear case of personal vendetta - Kiran More the selection committee chair cranium, notorious for changing sides uttered those above golden words
    This is totally ridiculous, Gangully has been shown the door in spite of responsible performances in a low scoring game.

    “We have a player (Yuvraj) who is doing better - Mr. More? How did you arrive at this blind conclusion? Based on what facts? Yuvraj has played 14 innings till date in test cricket, and has scored about 416 runs while Gangully’s last 14 innings totals to 504. Yes skeptics, I hear Bangladesh etc, Gangully did not schedule it on his own, we cannot write off performances just because opponents are weak. It is not Gangully’s fault to schedule thumb sucking games. Board and ICC schedules matches.

    Secondly what about the “experience factor”? When a lack luster and less experienced player like “More” heads the selection committee, why wasn’t Gangully’s experience ever considered? I am sure Gangully’s experience is superior to the aggregate achievements of ex-cricketers in the board. It is not correct for the Indian cricket board to treat a player of such caliber using personal vendetta. A player who has scored more than 1000 runs at least 3 times in a calendar year, a successful caption for India deserves better treatment. Gangully’s experience is definitely an added value to the team.

    The replacement seems to be much more political; after lecturing about future value of team etc, they go and get a player from the history book. Wasim Jaffer, he has already been tried and has an average of some 20.change. Why? Did triple century in recent first class game help? Board is trying hard to cover up a pumpkin pie using a plate of rice. Once again the quota devil shows its ugly face. He is a west zone player, 70% of the top level board members are from West Zone. Jaffer’s selection has been influenced by this factor. I have no doubt, why get an opener to replace an all rounder instead? Currently our opener Gambheer is pathetic. The total time Gambheer spends in the middle is equal to the time taken to open a Pepsi bottle; he has failed for quite some time.

    Next, if board gives a second chance to player from the history book, then what happened to a bowler called Balaji? Why he is never considered? Agarkar’s performance has been inconsistent always but some how finds his way through, what happened to the future view here? Why not give Balaji another chance? Oh Supernatural being! Please explain me about these double standards.

    Renovation to the board has not changed anything, God Father Part 1 , now Part 2

    Luka Chuppi from Rang De Basanti , made my day, I have been longing for A.R.rahman to get back into serious form. In recent times, even good songs from him went into the drain, movies failed in the box office. Rang De Basanti raises hopes for another music storm, Luka Chuppi a well contained melodies song with minimal orchestration. It is very important to understand that just the song’s tempo does not determine the melody element in a song. Rahman and Asha Lata Mangeshkar [Surprise!] renders the song with lot of natural expressions and emotions. And song does not contain techno audio effects and stylus drum grooves; a powerful melody over simple and traditional orchestration, I suppose this is the magical ingredient which impresses many set of ears. Way to go big guy! I will get the CD this week.

    India is on the winning path, Sachin's record will shine further if India wins the game, Sachin shut his skeptics down by a good century on an unpredictable Kotla track. I was wide awake to witness the history. Indians got 3 poor decisions in the first innings; this was the main reason for the sudden collapse. But yesterday Atapatu was given the benefit of doubt from a ball from Kumble which hit his pad and was destined to hit the stumps. Pathan’s played a gem of an innings in the second innings. Next test on Sunday, Sehwag will back, axe on Gangully or Yuraj or Ghambeer …never know. I felt Gangully played well but was over cautious; he should have stepped forward and played his usual strokes. But hey when job is at stake we don’t browse the internet even for emails

    Good day.


    தவமாய் தவம் இருந்து -

    Cinema can be called as “another practice of Story telling”. The movie maker or the Director uses his/her strong visual commutation skill to unwrap the story in front of you. Yesterday I happened to watch a movie, in which the director takes you thorough you a journey. A journey of an ordinary human being, a journey which a common man will relate and appreciate every emotion and feeling of the celluloid reflections.

    I am running out superlatives to describe this feature film. In the era of fast paced Tamil action movies with punch dialogues and chroma key shots, Director/Actor Cheran comes good in a reality show - “thavamai thavam irundu” [தவமாய் தவம் இருந்து].

    Right from Bhim Singhs to Sridhars or KB’s, the Tamil cine industry has never hesitated to exploit various people sentiments and emotions, be it - Love, Mother or wedding, and many other mellow dramatic subjects. However till date I have not seen a script that opens a life of an ordinary father from a son’s perspective. The script explores, enacts the emotions and tasks faced by a father who works hard for the better of the family through out his lifetime. The script justifies the claim “head of the family”.

    The main cast in the movie “Raj Kiran” , we have seen excellent performances by Sivaji Ganesan, S.V.Ranga Rao and many other stalwarts character actor of yesteryears. Today I would just add Raj Kiran into this list of stalwarts who take their acting seriously. Raj Kiran performance is natural and simply mind-boggling, I am quite confident that he is going to win awards at various levels including the nationals.

    In fact every person in the movie did their part quite well. Saranya, wow! And same applies to the “anni” character. Kudos Cheran! Simply you are an amazing director to bring out so many emotions from everyone. In general every character underplays their part with subtle emotions that had so much life in them, the major plus point for this movie - No melodramatic over acting or over flow of feelings. This is sheer reality. Check this, Cheran joins engineering and goes to a class, the heroine volunteers to explain some theorems in front of the class, as she explains it with real accuracy and interest, the camera close on Cheran, he raises his one of his eyebrow slightly displaying millions of emotions. The love game starts right there!

    The story is quite simple and real. The hero recollects his father’s scarifies in each and every frame. The essence of the movie: Younger son realizes his father’s only happiness and motto in life, - providing a good future to him and his brother.
    The movie screen plays this realization at various stages of Son’s life.

    Raj Kiran and Saraniya, typical parents with hand to mouth income spend their life for his kids. Raj Kiran runs a printing press, rides cycle every day to the city. He also takes his kids to a school in the city, gets them in the evening to his press and returns home. Put it short, “It’s been a hard day life, working like a log”, still he manages to smile and do anything for betterment of kids. The innocent nature his portray will burn emotional souls to simply cry loud.

    The part that I was moved was when Raj Kiran, contrary to his belief asks the younger son [Cheran] to go and leave separate with is wife. He comes to this
    conclusion based on his elder brother’s behavior, when he gets married his wife pesters him to move away, he talks to his elder son politely not knowing the sinister in him. Raj Kiran gives an innocent talk about the family, expenses and loans that he need to pay back. However in later part of life, seeing his younger one also go in the wrong way, he changes his course and belief of life and advices what is best for this son. Imo, this is what a dad is all about.

    The only thing I would want to change in this movie is the background music and the songs, could have been better. I felt music lacked some serious emotions. I expected silence and different kind of emotions and different set of instrumentation, but music director[s] [Sabesh/Murali] had other plans, they catered to the Director requirement, it ends there.

    Another general complain would be "too long", however in my view, such lead time is needed for so much emotion to reach you, rather hit you. When you walk out of the theater your heart and mind will be heavy for quite some time. No jokes, this is real. Mine was, for emotional guys like me, I don’t know if we can ever watch is movie again and load our heart with guilt. For western audience, a little editing will fetch this movie an Oscar, Yes! This is an Oscar material.

    I have come across skeptical people who often whine about superficial father’s day celebrations, for them hey! Go see this movie.


    Sehwag is ruled out of Second test, he called in sick reason:தொண்டைல கீச்கீச் [இரட்டை கிளவி] [cc: thoNdaila kIchkIch]. Captain Dravid missed a practice session, and he also called in sick. So who would be the interim captain?
    or Kaif [but he is in the verge of being sick]
    or VVS [he is technically sick and and a *rick]
    Or Gangully? [Chappel will fall sick]
    or Kumble? [??????]
    or Agarkar ? [this thought itself makes me Sick ]
    Sachin? Just before appointing Dravid, board did asked Sachin if he would be interested in this portfolio, he had clearly denied this offer, [my nitpicking friend from Mumbai, my source: R.Mohan’s interview in Vikatan that came about month ago] Why not Irfan? Other than Keeping he has opened batting, played top/middle/bottom order, by the way he can also bowl, Why not experiment him with Captaincy? What ever, Mr. Coach states Dravid shall play so there is no question about an interim captain. Team composition or confusion, we will know! it soon.

    More Rains in Tamil Nadu, while DC metro had about 3-6 inches of snow this morning, however the snow ended just in time for the morning commute mess.

    Sunday 11th Dec , is Mahakavi Bharathi’s 123rd Birthday, my good friend Srikanth Meenakshihad designed some T-Shirts for Charity purpose with Bharathi's face and punch lines, You can download all of the song from my Mahakavi Album here

    Have a great weekend.


    "Fanoos" is nearing Chennai, “Fanoos” = hanging lantern. What the heck it is?, another one of those deep sea depressions that bring in rain. How does a cyclone compare itself to a hanging lantern? No clue - after all the word Katrina in German means "Pure". So from a Hindi name “Bazz” we have now moved to an Egyptian name. As Arun mentioned few days ago in Blog, my suggestion would be use demons name as “Kamsan”, “Duchadanan” etc. But hey that is வட மொழி [cc:vada mozi] we don’t support any “வட” [cc:vada], தயிர் வடா [cc:thayir vada] or மெது வடா [cc:medu vada] mozies. It is about time for the “Tamil defenders” to do perform a “dharna” aka “slap stick comedy” in front of the Weather office.[Closing captaining provided by TTTTTAUSA]

    When a company replaces top management, many changes can be expected, BCCI is going through such changes, it seems BCCI will invite fresh tenders for Cricket Coverage and Team Sponsors, son the “SAHARA” Indian team can change, if a company with a longer gets the sponsorship, for example “SmithKlineBeecham”, the logo would occupy both the sides “Smith Kline[PTO]Beecham” What ever, we will never know if BCCI would come clean out of this quagmire.

    Listen to OliFm at work, a nice little web radio station from Toronto, Canada that plays many new Tamil songs in pure digital form. They also air my songs, right from 80s from Chennai to the latest “Engineering mark”. :)

    Stay warm!.

    Microsoft will be investing more in India.
    "My dream is to create a computer for every desk and every home. In India, we have not yet scratched the surface," Gates said. He will skip Banglore and will be visiting Chennai instead.


    The remarkable first test comes to an end, I was surprised to see many people show up for a dead game, “hehe” I did watch it to, I watched it for few other reason, one is nostalgic, It is a pleasure to watch your home town from other side of the world, little glimpse of good old MAC, D stand, A stand, the ground noise and the ambience a real pleasure that cannot be missed.

    As far as Indian team was concerned they were given free unlimited meals tokens. Dravid and Sachin make sure they got enough “gaj”, Sachin’s decision was not 100% correct infact any other player say “Ponting or Smith” would have got the benefit of doubt. VVS was pathetic and was run out thanks to Dada who claimed his wicket. Dada was tensed, and his usual smile seemed missing. Pressure I suppose, he has to play and score runs inorder to be in the team. Dhoni came in as though he was there to win a war, he wanted to hit everything including few flies in empty stands, but…was cleaned soon. Over all Indians wasted the free meals tokens. Could not take it longer, I went to bed after the lunch break. Morning I woke up to see “damn it” the Match was drawn [Duh!], I thought! Ok, what ever! I feel Lankan’s have gained a psychological advantage over India. Lot of support for Gangully and Dhoni in Chennai, and one interesting thing - many banners written in HINDI!, halo! When did Tamilans get the heart to learn Hindi? “Dude! Tamil Nadu is growing up chill out now” Why do I say this? Just read below...

    Yesterday’s issue of Washington post carried a fantastic article on Chennai. The article was titled, “Detroit's Next Big Threatwritten by Sebastian Mallaby. Columnist Mr. Mallaby predicts Chennai automobile industry is at critical point and its output will soon compensate its dodgy infrastructure. He says Chennai also shows why India succeeds in software and services. It seems 10 years ago none of our products had international standards however today the industry is grown such that almost all automobile companies adhere to strict international standards and have almost every international certification possible. He names few top companies of Chennai including TVS and the Rane group. It seems Sundram Fasteners [TVS group of companies] has won a General Motors "Supplier of the Year" award five times, and it supplies 100 percent of GM's radiator caps. Go Chennai! Go!.


    Sun TV now airs the greatest game on Show on TV “Gold Hunt” aka “தகதகதகதகதகதங்க வேட்டை”. Hosted by “Padaiappa” fame Ramya Krishnan, who spends first 10 minutes of show explaining her makeup, ornaments, dress etc; sponsors exploit this occasion by providing their top of the line garments and gold wares. However I wish Colgate gets into the sponsorship, so that they can supply her with few tooth brushes and paste.

    Two family compete to “pick” [தமிழ்ல சொன்ன ……] gold coins for every right answer. Actually participants seem to enjoy it but for us the viewers, the agony multiplies, – for every right answer we need to watch the participant’s “hand” pick the gold coin in slow motion with back ground music similar to Macana’s gold. For every wrong answer, Ramya drops the coins in a fish tank, the coins thus collected in the fish tank can be won by the viewers by sending in a SMS. Ramyaji speculates this throughout the show and will not tell the reason for the fish tank collection. Duh!.

    Questions to the show makers;
    Who frames fantastic questions like "யானைக்கு எத்தனை கால்?" or
    பூனைக்கு எத்தனை வால்?"
    Why there are questions about Hindu gods? Something is wrong principally! right?
    What is the significance of the rubber snake props found in each Egyptian “treasure” chests?

    Also I noted this, there were about 10,000 Tamil Violations in most Suv TV programs, people can call sun TV Channel as “Tamil Violation” channel. Self proclaimed Tamil watchmen [காவலர்கல்][ who often pardon SunTV for such mishaps are on vacation I suppose,I think it is better to remove letters like "ள் ழ் ழ" from Tamil to prevent language mishaps on SunTV.

    Violation 1: The choices for each questions uses “ABCD”, this is pathetic, don’t we have “life letters” like அ ஆ இ ஈ ? [எனக்கு ஏன் ஊர் வம்பு இது மருத்துவர்/compounder problem]

    Violation 2: why A studio set with Egyptians mummies in spite of having fantastic architectural values in Tamil Nadu?

    Violation 3 [சந்துல சிந்து]: In the program, "மீண்டும் மீண்டும் சிரிப்பு" 90% of the times the hero consumes alcohol with his friends. This is shown quite cleary in closeup shots.

    And many more…..Violations are so many it warrents a "balai et danse de poussoirs" near sun TV office or near Ramya Krishnan’s or Murthy's home.

    ps: Many parts of Chennai are under water, 1000s are stranded in the rain. People need help. I am sure Government is doing their best. However SUNTV did not waste single minute, they were busy trying to score points over the ruling party at every possible given opportunity. idhu thanda - "சன்"துல சிந்து.

    If you have not known this, the 1st between has started in Chennai about 5hrs ago and it will end it another 8 hrs. Until next rain there will be no international cricket in Chennai.

    Good day.


    Yesterday I ventured into a Desi fast food near my place. HOTBREADS - the famous Desi fast food franchise. They opened about a month ago; many of my friends were talking about the fast food and pastries Yes! They have a wide variety of fast food items with Indian flavor. If you travel around Kentland Blvd area in Gaithersburg, make sure you drop in, it is worth the money. Their service is also quick and fantastic. Don’t miss their VadaPav and the mango mousse….Address: 70 Market street (Kentlands) Gaithersburg - MD 20878 (Maryland) [Next to Lowes]

    Be it dry or wet, when it comes to Chennai - Water seems to be a perennial problem. The first test match could drain into Marina for nothing. It is very sad to see BCCI not being concerned about the sentiments of Chennai people who love this game. Usually Cricket matches are played in Chennai during Pongal time frame. I hope the cricket loving people in Chennai sue this slipshod attitude of BCCI and TNCA. Anyways I would be subscribing to willow TV to catch the game.
    If you have super dish at home please check the ASIAN FM channel. Looks like a Non-Stop Desi radio station.
    Back to work.
