I recieved a missed call from unknown number yesterday night.... :(

Yesterday night (12th December 2011) around 9:45 PM i received a call from unknown number. As i was hurriedly going to the canteen, i did not realize that i was getting a call. While on the way, when i checked my mobile: there was a missed call. I did not see the number properly (i.e, the country code and all). For instant i taught it might be a call from any of my friends who might have bought a new number. So i called to that number.

After some 10 rings, one guy picked up the call and started to speak up in Hindi and i started to wonder who the hell this is. He introduced himself saying that a name and he is an executive in Vodafone. Then he told me that my number has been selected in the lucky draw and i am eligible for prize money of 15 Lakh Rupees. Immediately, i came to know that this is a scam call. In curiosity i started to speak with him and asking more information’s regarding this. He told me that i have to call a number and speak to the head office manager who resides in Delhi and he gave the number. The number started with 00. The he told me his name which i forgot and said me a code number that has to be provided it was 4836. He forced me to call immediately and speak to him.

The call was automatically cut due to low balance. My balance was Rs. 0.19 :-( All my balance money was gone. I lost around Rs. 46 for this call. I started to wonder "Y the hell i lost so much money to make one simple call?". I then re-checked the number and to my surprise the country code was +91 instead of +92. OMG!!! i have made a ISD call. Though i knew it was a scam, i never taught i would be making an ISD call.

I immediately went to my desk and searched for this number and gave the country code in Google with search as "+92 scam".
There was a heart-attack shock for me because the country code was for Pakistan. I have called to Pakistan and talked to some unknown person for almost 5-6 minutes. My life is in Jeopardy now, don't even know where I will end up when some top officials trace this call and if it is founded that this number belongs to some terrorists group then I will be fucked up. Later, i went through all those discussion forums and finally found out that there are many people like me who were in my situation. I was relieved after reading so many stories.

Today, so far i have received 5 missed calls from same number and finally i have barred that number. The call which they make will not even last for a single ring. So people be very cautious when are dealing with unknown numbers. The number which i got those calls was from "+923418510048". I lost around Rs. 46 and this is what makes me very angry :-(

Making online deals

We all are very much addicted to internet these days as almost everything can be done online like shopping, banking, paying bills, online bidding and auction, booking travel tickets, multi-player gaming, etc. There are many numbers of online sites where purchases can be done without any difficulty or getting spammed.

People always look for better deals, offers, discounts and so on to make their purchases. The latest trend is to buy products or things from online auction sites where the person gets a good deal and saves some money. It's all about bidding and the person who quotes the highest bid will win the auction and buys the product. When I was browsing through the internet, i came across a website that gave reviews. The review title was "Getting the Things That You Want Easily and Cheaply from Great Auction Site" and the title looked very impressed to me. So, I started to go through the article which was written there. It talked more about the facts and how this site is useful to make good deals and so on. The review which I read was a useful one.

Some people feel that this might be a scam and do not try to enter such kind of sites. Instead they prefer to visit shopping sites and end up paying higher. This will not be a concern for the people who are rich, but people who are in middle class or lower than that always like to get good deals with great offer. I am not here to trap you, but I want you all to try for one auction and experience it.

December 8 - A Memorable day in Cricket history

December 8 2011 was a day not to forget with lot of actions that happened.

2G spectrum case - Subramanian Swamy got permission to depose as a witness in his against the Home Minister P. Chidambaram.

A protest was made by CPI (Marxist) demanding for a new dam in Mullaperiyar. If done so, Tamil Nadu might be in Jeopardy.

Indian share market was suffering huge blow due to European ques. It was almost a plunge of 400 points in NSE. As markets were about to close for the day, India and West Indies started their play which gave a visual retreat for cricket lovers.

India played their 4th ODI cricket match against the visitors West Indies in the 5 series match. The match was played in Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore. India needed 1 more win the clinch the series as they were leading the series with 2-1. The toss was won by Virender Sehwag and he chose to bat first.

Indian openers were Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag. This time Parthiv Patel was not the opener and instead the skipper himself opened the innings. The start was perfect and they played pretty well and established a great partnership. The first wicket partnership was 176 runs which was in just 22.5 overs. After the fall of Gautam Gambhir who got out scoring 67 runs, Suresh Raina came in to bat. Raina was showing poor performance in past few matches and this was the right moment and opportunity to prove himself. Raina utilised this opportunity and scored his half-century. Meanwhile, Skipper Virender Sehwag scored his century and was looking very dangerous as he was in his top perform.

West Indies bowlers were suffering from a lot of damage done by Sehwag. Second wicket partnership was 140 runs. Raina got out and Sehwag was still playing. Virender Sehwag surpassed Sachin's World record and scored 201 runs and thus became the highest scorer and second batsman to cross double century in ODI cricket. After scoring double century, he kept his momentum going on. He stayed till 46.3 over, when Kieron Pollard bowled a tricky ball in which Virender Sehwag was tempted to go for an six and ended up giving a catch at the boundary.

Virender Sehwag scored 219 runs in 149 deliveries before falling for Kieron Pollard. He hit 25 fours and 7 sixes making total boundaries to 32 which is also a new World record. Finally India ended up its innings putting up a total of 418 runs loosing 5 wickets only in 50 overs (IND - 418/5, 50 over). This is also the highest score for India.

West Indies struggled a lot when the newbie Rahul Sharma took 3 important wickets for India. Finally, WI ended up scoring 265 runs and lost all 10 wickets (WI - 265/10, 49.2 over). Highest scorer was Denesh Ramdin who scored 96 runs and failed to get his century.

India won the match by 153 runs and the series as well. Man of the match was Virender Sehwag for his brilliant batting performance.

Ravi Rampaul breaks Indian bowling tactics and saves WI to put up a good total

Currently, West Indies and India are playing their 2nd ODI of the series at ACA-VDCA Stadium, Visakhapatnam. The toss was won by India and they selected to bat first.

Lendl Simmons and Adrian Barath were the openers for the WI team. In the last delivery of the second over, Adrian Barath got out and returned back to the pavilion. This wicket gave confidence to the Indian bowlers and they kept on attacking the WI batsmen. They could not sustain the attack and hence WI batting lineup started to collapse. At one point of time WI were 63 runs for 5 wickets. Kieron Pollard came in to bat he batted well and scored some quick runs which helped WI to recover a bit. After hitting 2 biggies, Pollard could slow down and hence fell for Ravichandran Ashwin who finally removed Pollard after giving 2 sixes in the over.

This was a crucial break for India and they were back on track again. By 36 overs, India managed to pick up 9 wickets by just giving 170 runs to WI. One more wicket, India will have a fair chances to win the match easily. But it did not work towards Indian side. Ravi Rampaul who came into bat at number 9 started to hunt the bowlers. He batted magnificently and replied to the bowlers with fours and sixes. With the help of his partner Kemar Roach, Ravi Rampaul went on hunting the bowlers. Both played well till the end and helped the West Indies team to come out of the disastrous situation and remained not out till the end of the innings. West Indies put up a total score of 269 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in 50 overs (WI - 269/9, 50 over). Ravi Rampaul was unbeaten scoring 86 runs with 6 fours and 6 sixes. Kemar Roach was unbeaten scoring 24 runs which included 3 fours. The last wicket partnership was 99 runs. I think this might be the biggest partnership for 10th wicket.

Indians took the WI's last wicket very lightly and that is why Indians are suffering. But there is no use in regretting now. Only thing to be done is to hunt down the score successfully.

India vs West Indies test match 3 highlights

Current status of the match is Lunch. Yesterday, West Indies won the toss and elected to bat first. After loosing the first 2 test matches, now its time for the West Indies to avoid the whitewash. Keeping this on mind, West Indies gave a perfect start for the day. The Indians failed to take early wickets at the start. West Indies first wicket fell after its total reached 137 runs. Once the break up of the partnership happened, Indians managed to remove other opener as well in short duration. At the end of the first day, West Indies managed to put up a total of 291 runs and lost only 2 wickets. Indians failed in the first day and they were hoping to make some early dismissals on the second day.

The hope did not become into reality as they managed to remove only one wicket after bowling 13.5 overs. West Indies 3rd wicket partnership was 164 runs. Darren Bravo scored his century and is still batting. As of now, West Indies have played 121 overs and scored 378 runs having a run rate of 3.12 runs per over (WI - 378/3, 121 over). Darren Bravo and Kieran Powell are playing and have scored 108 runs and 38 runs respectively. The partnership between them is 64 runs. Ravichandran Ashwin has took 2 wickets and Ishant Sharma took a wicket.

If, West Indies managed to play till the end of the day then the match would end up in a draw or India will loose the match.

Pandavkada falls - A place to visit for sure :-)

Pandavkada falls during monsoon

We had decided to visit Pandavkada waterfalls long back, but things did not go as we had planned. We had already missed monsoon and the fun was almost gone. But even then, we decided to visit this place for sure before its too late because we all know that we will be leaving mumbai before next monsoon.

It was 1st October 2011, a bright sunny Saturday. Me and my roomies Bhanu and Praveen left the flat (situated in Airoli, Navi Mumbai) with 2 bikes around 10:30 A.M. It was around 30 minutes drive to reach Kharghar. We did not know the exact location and hence we asked some localite and he guided us the route to the falls.
Me with my bike :-)

After 10 minutes of drive, we were nearby the hills where the falls is located. They had told us that we have to park the bike and should walk about 4.5 kms. But we were not willing to leave our bikes near the main road, so we decided to ride our bikes in those ruddy paths. We crossed the river, the height of flowing water was very low, and we rode for about 2 kms further. Finally, we had to park our bikes because there was no way to proceed further with our bikes. As the monsoon had already passed there was only a small amount of water that was falling. We were little disappointed by seeing it but even then we did not give up.
Walking towards the falls after parking our bikes

Me and Praveen in the pool
So we started walking from there, it was around 2 more kms to reach the falls. It was like a small trek for us and i loved it (coz bhanu n praveen had to walk for such a long distance, basically they are lazy to go out). When we almost reached the falls, we saw a beautiful view of the falls and a pool that was there. We were not sure about the depth of pool as there were plenty of rocks inside the pool. We went closer towards the pool and Praveen decided to step into the pool. In actual, our plan was not to get into pool and have a swim. We just wanted to have a look at the falls and come back home. After some time even i was excited to swim in the pool. So, we both entered the pool and it was very cold :-).  As we were not sure about the depth, i went on checking for depth. As there were many rocks beneath the water, there depth was uncertain. Praveen and Bhanu don't know how to swim, so i had to keep checking for the deepness at new places.

It's me

I wanted to get very closer to the falls, so that the water that is falling should hit me directly. So, i took a risk and some how reached that point. The place was very slippery and i had to be very careful. The water started falling on me, it was like someone striking me with a kane, but the feeling was awesome. After some time, Bhanu also decided to jump into the pool and mingle with us. So we all three joined together in the pool and had a great time in the pool.

Then we realised that it was a perfect timing and if we had visited during monsoon, definitely we would'nt have had so much fun. During monsoon this fall is considered to be very dangerous as a huge volume of water jumps directly from a 107 meters rocky mountain.
Me and Bhanu in front of the falls
After around 2 hours, we came out of the pool and left the place. We were very exhausted and had a lunch in a restaurant. We returned back safely at around 4:30 PM. It was one of the unforgettable experience for all of us :-)

While returning back....

Study reveals that sitting for longer time increases risk of CANCER!!!!

It is estimated that a single person in a single day sits for about an average of 15 1/2 hours. This sitting will include in front of a television, computer, school, work, travel, meals and so on. Due to these reasons, there is an increase in inflammation of the body which in-turn increases the risk of cancer.
This study was conducted by the epidemiologist named Christine Friedenreich who is from Alberta Health Services Cancer Care which is located at Calgary, Canada.
Earlier it was proved that the inflammation used to reduce when we do exercises. But now the researchers have stepped in opposite direction and have come up with this new conclusion.

So friends, i suggest you to take short breaks just roam around within the room for few minutes, some exercises will be helpful, dont spend to much time sitting at one place itself. By this atleast we can reduce the risk of getting cancer.

Trinidad and Tobago overcomes Chennai Super Kings

Yesterday, Defending champions Chennai Super Kings played against Trinidad and Tobago in the Champions League Twenty20 at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. The toss was won by the Trinidad and Tobago team and they chose to bat first.

T&T opened its batting innings with the openers Lendl Simmons and William Perkins. The start was pretty good but the things went on an average. They both could hit great knocks as the pitch turned out to be a bowling pitch. They both maintained an average score of around 6 runs per over. After the fall of William Perkins when T&T was 52 runs in 9.3 overs, things started to change as they kept on loosing wickets. At last, Kevon Cooper played some useful knocks and helped the team to put up a total of 123 runs loosing 8 wickets (T&T 123/8, 20 over). Cooper scored a magnificent 28 runs in just 10 deliveries that included 1 four and 3 sixes. Doug Bollinger took 3 wickets.

For Chennai Super Kings this total did not seem to be a big deal. The start was just perfect but it did not last for few overs. Murali Vijay got out in 2.5 over. After the first wicket fall, CSK started to loose wickets very quickly. The bowling attack turned out to be a superb one from T&T team. CSK scored only 75 runs in 16.3 over when skipper fell as the sixth wicket. Then Dwayne Bravo and Albie Morkel both played well and put up a partnership of 36 runs in just 3.3 overs. But this was not enough for the CSK to win and they finally failed to chase the target successfully. Chennai Super Kings managed to scored a total of 111 runs loosing only 6 wickets in 20 overs (CSK - 111/6, 20 over). Sunil Narine took 3 wickets.

T&T won the match by 12 runs. Man of the match was Sunil Narine for his brilliant bowling attack.

KKR gave a big blow to RCB....

Today, 10th match of the Champions League Twenty20 was played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. The toss went into the favor of KKR and they chose to field first.

RCB had already lost their first game and they were looking forward to win this match. The superstar Chris Gayle along with his non-strike opener Tillakaratne Dilshan came in to bat. The start looked good as Chris Gayle was and Dilshan were playing but not very aggressive though. Gayle managed to hit 3 sixes, but after this he failed to hit big and he returned to pavilion scoring only 25 runs in 16 deliveries. Things started to mess up as they started to loose wickets. At one point of time, they were 91 loosing 6 wickets. A much needed partnership between the captain Daniel Vettori and Raju Bhatkal helped RCB to bounce into the game. They both made a partnership of 61 runs. Finally RCB ended up scoring a total of 169 runs loosing 9 wickets (RCB - 169/9, 20 over).

The chase looked little challenging for KKR as the required run rate was around 8.45 runs per over. Jacques Kallis and Brad Haddin came in to bat. They both gave a perfect start and did put up a partnership of 62 runs. Brad Haddin got out after scoring 42 runs from 27 deliveries that included 5 fours and 2 sixes. Then came the skipper Gautam Gambhir and he was unbeaten along with Kallis and finished the game in style. Kallis was unbeaten scoring 64 runs and Gambhir with 55 runs in just 31 deliveries that included 3 fours and 4 sixes. KKR won the match by scoring 171 runs with loss of only a wicket (KKR 171/1, 17.3 over).

KKR won the match by 9 wickets. Man of the match was Jacques Kallis for his all-rounding performance where he scored a half century and took a wicket.

Second blow given by England to India`

Indians were whitewashed in the test series that was played against England few days ago. England have come back strongly stating that even they can dominate cricket in all the aspects. England won all the four test matches played against India and became the #1 test team in the world. India dropped to 3rd position from 1st.

Indian being a strong team in both T20 cricket and ODI cricket, played a T20 match against England yesterday at Old Trafford, Manchester, England. The toss was won by the Indian skipper and elected to bat first. India gave an marvelous start and were almost scoring 10 runs per over. At one point of time, they were 104/2 in just 11.4 overs. Rahul Dravid was beautiful with his bat as he scored 3 sixes but not even a single four, just imagine 3 sixes that too by Rahul Dravid. It was something like unbelievable thing. The newest entry Ajinkya Rahane played magnificently and put up a very good partnership with the Wall and he scored 61 runs. Later on Suresh Raina came in to bat and he also played nicely and scored 33 runs in just 19 deliveries which included 2 fours and 3 sixes. After this fall, rest of the team collapsed and ended up scoring only 165 runs loosing all 10 wickets with 2 deliveries to spare (IND - 165/10, 19.4 over). Everything ended up with a mess. Jade Dernbach from England took 4 wickets.

In reply to this England opened its batting innings but soon lost its first wicket in the very second delivery of the innings. England was in trouble as it lost its first wicket without opening the run account itself. But after this, things changed as the batsmen started to attack Indians bowlers. They played very wisely and kept on momentum going. This helped them a lot to build up some useful partnerships. England in 19.3 over, chased 165 runs successfully and became victorious. England scored 169 runs in 19.3 over loosing only 4 wickets (ENG - 169/4, 19.3 over). Eoin Morgan was the highest scorer for England who scored 49 runs in just 27 deliveries that inlcuded 7 fours and a six.

England won the match by 6 wickets. Man of the match was Jade Dernbach. By winning this match, England has sent a strong message to rest of the teams in the world stating that; apart from test cricket, they have become a strong contender in T20 cricket as well.

Suffering from morbilliform rash

On Wednesday, when i woke up in the morning my face started to look little different than normal. I did not take it that much serious on that day and i went to office as usual. By evening, my face started to look very awkward which was very bumpy and swelly. By the end of the day, my body was itching and stinging. I tried to resist for around 1 hour, but after that i gave up. As a result of scratching, i started to feel like being inside a furnace of burning coal.

I could see rashes every where which is in the form of macule and papule. When i touch my skin and hover on it, i could feel like moving a sand paper. There's a saying in Hindi "Pehle mazaa, phir sazaa" (First enjoyment, later punishment). As it tells, even it happened in my case. Whenever i feel an itch, somehow i manage to be in control for around 1-2 hours, but after that i give up. During scratching it feels like i am in heaven, once done i will be thrown back to hell where i can feel brimstone's kept on my skin :-(

When i woke up on Thursday morning, my face looked worse than it was the previous day. So i skipped my office and went to an dermatologist and explained him about whatever things happened. He very calmly and politely listened to me. Later on, he just saw my face using some magnifying lens kind of thing and checked the skin of my hand. He just told me that i am suffering from Morbilliform rash. I was just wondering from where in the world this kind of thing come from :P He wrote some prescriptions that contained some pills, lotions, creams and a soap.

I just asked him a question, will it be cured pretty soon. He just replied me that come after 10 days, i will check it out and let you know. After listening to this, i could hear a broken noise inside me (Wondering; what the f***, it will take around 10 days to cure. What about my face, how can i go to office like this for so many days and so on...... ). As prescribed i took the pills, applied the creams and lotion, used only one soap which was told by him. Yesterday (Friday), when i woke up i could see some improvement on my face but still it was looking weird. I made up my mind and somehow i managed to go to office. When i was at my desk, i was feeling very embarrassing to sit coz i was not that much comfortable to show up my infected face to everyone. I soon went inside the lab and spent my entire day there itself. Happiest thing was, it was evening when i realized that i did not make any single scratch on my body. I was little happy and started to be very optimistic that it will be cured within a couple of days. But i was wrong, as the night was getting nearer and nearer, the sensation of itching kept on increasing. I started to loose my patience and finally at around 6 PM, i started to scratch very vigorously. I could see new bumps forming and again started to feel the pain of stinging in me. Till now i have seen no improvement. Hope i will see atleast some changes on tomorrow.

MS Dhoni can create a reverse history too !!!!!

After triumphing over West Indies, Indians headed to England to play a test series on the hosts. But everything went in vain. India being a best team is now suffering a lot of damage done by England. The wall of India i.e, Rahul Dravid is the only consistent performer who is saving the prestige of India being drastically hindered. I will tell you that it is not India tour of England, it should be "Dravid tour of England" :-)

The first match was little OK for India as they lost the opening match by 196 runs. After this, things began to worsen very much. In the second match they lost by 319 runs. In the 3rd match, England won by an innings and 242 runs. By this, England won the series and also took the #1 position pushing India to drop down the second position.

Indians had  to at-least make a draw in the fourth test if they want to remain in #2 position. But even this has become a doubt now. England scored a total of 491 runs loosing only 6 wickets (ENG - 491/6) and finally declared. Ian Bell contributed 235 runs and Kevin Pietersen contributed 175 runs to the team's score. India were all out scoring only 300 runs (IND - 300/10) and started to play their second innings as follow on. Highest scorer from India was Rahul Dravid who was unbeaten scoring 146 runs. As of now, India have scored 25 runs with no loss in the follow on innings (IND - 25/0).

Be wise than aggressive...

Character is one of the four characteristics of successful leaders. Sometimes, expressing it can take the courage of your convictions

"General Powell, I understand that your wife once suffered from depression, had to take medicine, and was even in a mental hospital. Do you want to comment on that?"

The 8,000-strong audience filling the Dallas Civic Auditorium was aghast. Everyone went quiet. They could hardly believe their ears. Colin Powell then considered a serious contender for the Presidential nomination was delivering a stirring, inspiring keynote address. His audience: a leading residential real estate company's top producers.
He faced an uphill battle with this crowd. They listened politely enough, but you'd be hard pressed to imagine Powell's impact having a lasting effect. After all, these were the best deal makers of a profession not known to be circumspect, but who instead appeared to take pride in their "transaction myopia," namely - find the deal, get the deal, do the deal, next deal.

During the Q&A period, a man asked the above question. Inappropriate is too kind a word for his off-the-wall question. Everyone wondered how Powell would react. Would he be politically correct and say that he was glad the man asked the question to make the point that mental illness should be treated with parity to medical illness? Would he ignore the man? Or would he bring back memories of Edmund Muskie throwing away his presidential hopes 25 years earlier when his wife was similarly attacked, causing the Maine senator to cry?

He looked firmly at the man and responded: "Excuse me sir, the person you love more than anyone is living in hell and you don't do whatever you can to get her out? Do you have a problem with that, sir?" One could hear a pin drop. Everyone felt Powell's values and principles fuse into deeply felt conviction. Talk about leadership! I said to myself, "I would buy a used country from that guy."

Learning from Colin Powell on that day; the incident is one of the best examples for how one can command respect through demonstrating. When you are wise and wrap aggression, it gives you the conviction to stand up to anyone. If in the heat of the moment, you're tempted to react quickly, Instead of doing that, be wise and do the following:

Step 1 Think of the first thing you want to say or do and don't do it (this is about retaliation)

Step 2 Think of the second thing you want to say or do and don't do it (this is about starting a debate)
Step 3 Think about the third thing you want to say or do and do it (this is about finding a solution).

"Your character is the anchor that grounds you, the compass that guides you, and the magnet that draws others to you. Being aware of your character gives you confidence and increases the probability of achieving your desired results."

Another poor performance given by Indians

It was expected that this test match would be dropped as the riots in England are getting stronger and stronger. But with proper security and passion both the team players have come forward to play the match. Today, India and England opened their third test match at Edgbaston, Birmingham, England. England won the toss and this time for a change they decided to field first.

Indian blaster, Virender Sehwag is in the team this time and lots of expectations was on him. Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag opened the batting innings for India. First over, Gambhir played well and hit 2 fours. In the next over, Virender Sehwag opened his batting and got out in the very first delivery itself. All the expectations which was on him went in vain as he became duck out. A small partnership of 51 runs between Gambhir and Rahul Dravid helped India recover a bit. This also did not last as they lost more wickets with lesser runs. At one point of time, India were 111/7 and were looking really bad. Skipper MS Dhoni and Praveen Kumar teamed up together and decided to belt each and every bowler. This move, helped them a lot as they put up a partnership of 84 runs in very quick succession. After this fall, Indians could put up a total of 224 runs before loosing all 10 wickets (IND - 224/10 ). Skipper MS Dhoni was the highest scorer of the innings who scored 77 runs that included 10 fours and 3 sixes. Tim Bresnan and Stuart Broad took 4 wickets each.

England opened its first innings with the openers Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook. They both opened brilliantly and played till the end of the day. At the end of the day, Andrew Strauss was unbeaten scoring 52 runs and Alastair Cook scoring a unbeaten 27 runs. England have scored 84 runs with no loss (ENG - 84/0). 

Australians were trapped in Ajantha Mendis Jinx

Yesterday, Srilanka and Australia played their second Twenty20 match at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Kandy, Sri Lanka. The toss was won by the Srilankans and they chose to bat first.

Mahela Jayawardena and Tillakaratne Dilshan opened the batting innings for Srilanka. Tillakaratne Dilshan was unsuccessful again as he got out after scoring 4 runs only. Mahela Jayawardena batted well till 19.2 over and got out scoring 86 runs in 63 deliveries that included 12 fours and 1 six. Rest other players did not make it big, they just contributed few runs here and there. Finally Srilanka managed to put up a total score of 157 runs on board in 20 overs loosing 9 wickets (SL - 157/9, 20 over). Brett Lee and John Hastings took 3 wickets each.

Australia needed 158 runs to win the match and start the innings with the openers Shane Watson and David Warner. Both of the started pretty well and the start given by Shane Watson was outstanding. For the first 6 overs, Shane Watson belted the bowlers hitting the ball in all the corners of the ground. He scored 57 runs in just 24 deliveries that included 6 fours and 5 sixes. He got out in Ajantha Mendis delivery by giving a straight catch to Thisara Perera. After the fall of Shane Watson, Australians lost 3 more wickets in just 3 runs. After this, Australian skipper Cameron White took the charge along with Steven Smith and were back on track. Srilankans started to struggle a lot in getting a wicket. Finally Ajantha Mendis struck back with his 4th wicket and broke the partnership. After this, they were back on track and managed to keep pressure on the Australians till the end of the innings. Australia could put up a total of 149 runs only with the loss of 9 wickets in 20 overs (AUS - 149/9, 20 over). Ajantha Mendis was the highest wicket taker in the match. He also created the world record in T20 history by taking 6 wickets and the first Srilankan to get 5 wickets in a match.

Srilanka won the match by 8 runs. Man of the match was Ajantha Mendis for taking 6 wickets and creating a new T20 world record.

Soar Beyond your Fears!!!

Once there was a king who received a gift of two magnificent falcons from Arabia. They were peregrine falcons, the most beautiful birds he had ever seen. He gave the precious birds to his head falconer to be trained.
Months passed and one day the head falconer informed the king that though one of the falcons was flying majestically, soaring high in the sky, the other bird had not moved from its branch since the day it had arrived.
The king summoned healers and sorcerers from all the land to tend to the falcon, but no one could make the bird fly. He presented the task to the member of his court, but the next day, the king saw through the palace window that the bird had still not moved from its perch. Having tried everything else, the king thought to himself, "May be I need someone more familiar with the countryside to understand the nature of this problem." So he cried out to his court, "Go and get a farmer."
In the morning, the king was thrilled to see the falcon soaring high above the palace gardens. He said to his court, "Bring me the doer of this miracle."
The court quickly located the farmer, who came and stood before the king. The king asked him, "How did you make the falcon fly?"
With his head bowed, the farmer said to the king, " It was very easy, your highness. I simply cut the branch where the bird was sitting."
We are all made to fly -- to realize our incredible potential as human beings. But instead of doing that, we sit on our branches, clinging to the things that are familiar to us. The possibilities are endless, but for most of us, they remain undiscovered. We conform to the familiar, the comfortable, the mundane. So for the most part, our lives are mediocre instead of exciting, thrilling and fulfilling.

So let us learn to destroy the branch of fear we cling to and free ourselves to the glory of flight.

From the Book "Why walk when you can fly"


THEN GO AHEAD & FLY.........
Have a Fabulous day and Fantastic weekend :)

OMG!!! This is hilarious...... Cannibals still exist on this earth.......

Hello friends, few weeks back i received a mail with a subject written as "Biriyani lunch in Thailand". Before checking the mail, in my mind it was like "it could be food something made up of snakes, lizards, worms, frogs or combination of all these things".

But i was wrong, this time it was a dead man. Every picture when i went through, it looked very awkward and embarrassing to me. I was feeling like vomiting right away after looking at few snaps. Here are the pictures which i received in the mail. I have never seen such thing before....... yuk...... I wish that i don't even want to see these people in my life......
