Sania Mirza Losses - The same old story

Sania Mirza's great run in the Korean Open came to an end against a low-ranked player, rank # 72 to be precise. In the earlier match she had defeated Hingis - 8th ranked in the world. She has raked up the same old question...Why can't the Indians be consistent? They will be always called the giant-killers but not the champions..This is the case in all the sports not only tennis.. You will read of such giant-killing acts in hockey, tennis, cricket..but no consitency..

Champions are made when the players/team show consitencies. Australian Cricket team, Germany Hockey team and individual players like Borg,Sampras, Aggasi, Navratilova,Woods; the list is never-ending

Indian cricket team winning the 83' World Cup of Cricket was another example of consistency..they had their giant-killing act during the league phase and continued the same thru till the finals..

Will this question be ever answered...not sure but lets live the life to moment and enjoy the giant-killing acts by our Indian Greats

Gandhigiri and Circuit Rule the box-office

After a gap of some years, had the opportunity to watch a movie san 'violence' but preaches the 'aam janta' on the forgotten 'gandhi' principles of 'non-violence'.

Hats off to Rajkumar Hirani for making this movie and pulling off a 'laughing riot' once again.

Credit needs to be given to whoever invented the character of 'bapu' in this movie. The presentation of the 'gandhian' principles thru 'munnabhai' is awesome and worth watching.

If 'gandhigari' is the trump card of the movie, one should not forget the players involved in the game. The "MOM - man of the match" for this movie is definetely "CIRCUIT". Circuit with his one-liners keeps the public holding their stomachs with laughter

It is the same team that got us the "Munnabhai MBBS" except for the change in the female lead.
It is worth spending some $$$ and watching this movie...full paisa vasool

Munnabhai Laghe Raho.....
