Too much of a good thing?

Yet another day today when I was complained of spending too much time on the PC. I used to be a TV freak some time back. In my childhood used watch even vayalum vazhvum, a farming techniques program over studying. Then I felt there were things to be learnt from TV more than texts which talked of trignometry, akbar and Praire's wheat produce. Honestly I have never had any use for any of these all my life ever since.

Now the new fad(?) is PC. I cant turn away from a device, that has all my photos, all my favorite songs, all my favourite reads. How I love the music without those CD covers, unmarked cassette wrapping paper which simply says "Sony" or "TDK" and I am straining my memory to remember what it contains. I contain atleast 20 such cassettes even now.

The sad part and really the shocking part is, most if not all of the stuff I have in my PC is free. I hope this becomes a PayTV kinda scenario, pay back to the for all the goodness I get. How I would like to pay Re. 1 to Billy when I listen to We didnt start the fire.

Its too good to be free honestly!

Ganging against Ganguly

Its been a while since I posted (as though the world is worried about it *ahem*). But the injustice meted out to Ganguly has aroused me out of the slumber in to logging in and go blogging!

Its the umpteenth time when the selectors have ignored a man with decent performances in the omnipresent need to "look at the future". It happened to Kumble, Laxman and many others. The lucky albeit undeserving ones like "whats his name that underaged wicketkeeper" had a windfall flouting their oath.

Its not fair to drop a performer whatever the merits of the argument are. We as a country are so deprivated coz we dont value performance and think foreigners are better.

I hope for the country's sake that better sense prevails
