Does India know Cricket?

Yesterday was AGAIN a bad day for Indian cricket team, so called 'Team-India'. Indian tigers could not sustain Sri Lankan lions. After a tight bowling till 40 overs India had thought of letting them build a good score. May be our team was thinking to give a lavish for its spectators by showing heroic chasing of that score. Team's commercial attitude has suferred its play in World Cup.

Except Rahul Dravid nobody seemed serios on pitch. Rest of all batsman was all ineffective when their abilities needed soldering with actions. Yuvraj seems a bit confident in strokes and determined for target but a bad communication between Rahul and him helped only to go back in pavilion for rest.

Last wicket did a good job a delaying the defeat and could not do anything better than this. What can we expect from bowlers in a country where a bowler is looked only as a bowler. If he doesn't know batting it's OK and if he doesn't know how to field then he is a perfect choice selector. Though this condition has bettered in the recent past but still mandate could not be formed about selecting bowler who knows how to hold the bat in bad times. Irfan was a good alternative. I just could not understand why committee has not given him a chance. I agree that his bowling is no longer sharp as it used to be but he is master batsman and a fair feilder.

The only people who has got rich in this bad game by Team-India are bookies. The India had better prospects of winning with great batsman lining up in Indian Camp and a recent series victory against Sri Lanka. We ordinary Indians has lost our pride by a great play of our unrelianble brothers.

Honeymoon - Part 1

The first thing that any couple does immediately after their marriage is go for a 'honeymoon'. It is almost 6 months since I am carrying tag of 'husband' but unfortunately could not go out with my wife. I didn't have enough leaves to go for honeymoon after my wedding. So we had decided then that we will have it in parts like Harry Potter movies. So this weekend we went for our first part of Honeymoon.
Saturday morning we left at around 9:00 AM for The Lake Weekend resort. This is the parking area of my building.

The resort is near Varasgaon dam. The route is Sinhagad road - Khadakwasala dam - Panshet - Varasgaon boat club. The picture taken while running besides Khadakwasla dam.

My wife, Meet, trying catch herself in portrait while I was driving my Pulsar 150 towards resort. She is wearing cap that my MBA college gave me when I went there to meet my juniors last year. 

It is a perfect ride on weekend if one loves beautiful scenery and enjoys cool breeze.

Bride-Groom Selection Spreadsheet

Soon after entering in your mid 20's you will hear a word 'proposal' more often from your parents. In most part of the India the timing for bride/groom searching is decided by the parents for two reasons
Arranged marriages are still very popular hereAs you young boy or girl you will always feel that you too young to get married 
Many a times a final selection will be done based on a gut feeling of your parents and relatives. To base your decision on facts and figures I have created following spreadsheet. I personally think the selection that is going to impact your whole life should be made logically. 
In criteria or attribute column you can add up to 10 things and you can assign weighing factor to it in the adjacent column. Then you should go on replacing Name 1 to 4 with name of girls or boys your are considering as your would be. Now simply give marks to each girl and boy against each factor. The one you have with highest score should be the winner.

Corporate e-Newsletter Initiative – How to go about it?

If you are thinking of starting up a e-newsletter activity at corporate level then below are few tips that might help you in the course. I have divided a newsletter activity in three phases viz. planning, construction and distribution.

Planning phase

1. Attention grabbing name

The name of the newsletter should grab attention of the audience. If your brand is highly recognizable in your business community then only use that name. If that is not the case then use any other name that will represent the aim of your newsletter. For example, if you are starting a newsletter for cloud services then have the name something as ‘Envisioning the Cloud’.

2. Decide your target audience

It is not always possible to have different newsletters for different segments of your market due to budget and resource constraints. In that case you will have to choose your first market segment that you will serve as a pilot campaign. Based on its success you can go on adding segments in current newsletter or sta…
