My tribute to the game called Cricket

All these years you wanted to watch cricket, but you had exams of all sorts scheduled perfectly alongside the matches and all that you can do is peep in occasionally to watch that bottom bar for the score and if you overstay your welcome in to the TV room, you experience a bad feeling about tomorrow’s exam and your legs automatically take you to the study room! After all the hush and hoopla, IPL 3.

Thaai Thindra Manne lyrics

தாய் தின்ற மண்ணே இது பிள்ளையின் கதறல் ஒரு பேரரசன் புலம்பல் நெல் ஆடிய நிலம் எங்கே? சொல் ஆடிய அவை எங்கே? வில் ஆடிய களம் எங்கே? கல் ஆடிய சிலை எங்கே? தாய் தின்ற மண்ணே? கயல் விளையாடும் வயல் வெளி தேடி காய்ந்து கழிந்தன கண்கள் காவிரி மலரின் கடிமணம் தேடி கருகி முடிந்தது நாசி சிலை வழி மேவும் உளி ஒலி தேடி திருகி விழுந்தன செவிகள் ஊன்பொதி சோற்றின் தேன்சுவை கருதி ஒட்டி உலர்ந்தது நாவும் புலி கோடி பொறித்த சோழ மாந்தர்கள் எலி கரி கொரிப்பதுவோ காற்றை குடிக்கும் தாவரமாகி காலம் கழிப்பதுவோ

IPL 30

Hi folks! So, another edition of the Indian Premier League is under-way and the three games so far have been awesome. The first ball of the IPL fetched the wicket of Manoj Tiwary of KKR but yet KKR won, thanks to some excellent batting display by Owais Shah and Angelo Mathews. Deccan missed a golden opportunity and hopefully they’ll bounce back. The next match saw some brutal hitting by the Mumbai Indians and of course a spirited run chase by Rajasthan Royals led by Yusuf Pathan.

So, a lot of things had happened since my last post! It had been a fantastic new year! We finally moved to our new house, having spent the new year at our previous house, watching the fun and frolic at Royal Orchid from our terrace!

Bachelors and houses

Hi folks, Well, so this is another of my rantings. Every bachelor would have certainly faced this problem. And we, as part of shifting our house, are certainly feeling the heat. First of all, let me answer some FAQs in your mind.. Why are we actually changing our house? The seven of us are living across three different houses. We are moving to a bigger 3BHK house. Where are we living presently?

A series well won

Merry Christmas to you all! The new year is round the corner and it is the time to make resolutions (if any). If you well, ask me about mine for the new year, I would blurt out “/etc/resolv.conf”. (Why blood??? Aah.. Same blood..). I wish you all a very happy new year and puthu varshathulayaavathu konjam nalla pullayya irungappa. (enna maadhiri.. :P). Coming to the first subject of this post, it is #cricket (too much of denting and tweeting has taken its toll on me).

Spoiler Alert (for Vettaikaaran)! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!!! 🙂 So, the last 4 days have been nothing short of fantastic! It all started on Saturday, the 19th.

We started the next day (Sunday) by searching for a ground to play Cricket. Phew! We searched for almost an hour and finally reached the ground (Actually.
