More random notes
I just couldn’t help noticing the distinct lack of gloom around when India got knocked out of the T20 championship rather prematurely. I didn’t bother with the opinions of the wise men from the many TV channels or websites as frankly I think it was a game where one simply played better and not much post mortem was merited. This fact was further reinforced when MSD owned responsibility for the batting order change and like many others who felt that Yuvi was the best option to face the faster men, but they are gambles that MSD takes. When he used Raina to bowl in the IPL at crunch situations and it worked we oohed and aahed, but had it flopped the knives would have been out and already IBN is asking if he should resign. Shame on you, it is very easy to sit in the air-conditioned confines and deliberate meaninglessly but it wont change a thing on the field.
At the end it remains just a game.
It was yet another busy weekend and there was nothing much I could do about it as there was a family function and I had the inevitable driving responsibilities from dawn to dusk. The function went off well and with it did D to her mum’s place.
Appraisals have come and gone with such a wonderful increment that I am searching for a magnifying glass to fully see it. And the chorus, “you job is your bonus and your full salary is your increment” is reaching deafening levels by all the superiors you bump into.
My food blog is up and running with my first post and I will be putting up the 2nd today, so I have yet another connect to the blogosphere. And now I am thinking of a local level portal that may actually stop being a thought and go live in some time.
PS. I did a google search for Chennai Burps and the result was quite pleasing.
