Ganguly dropped

The second test is in progress and Ganguly is not in the playing XI. Who wants to go through the rigmarole again? Effigy-makers must be making a killing in Kolkata. Its sad to note that the state that has produced so many Nobel prize winners is in such a state. Well, what do we expect when its under the left leash! (I had to somehow make a connection;-))
My imagination runs wild about what would happen next. Ganguly talks to Pawar and whines about him not being in the team. Pawar feels sorry and also realizes that Ganguly is good friends with Sachin and hence deserves a better treatment. So he calls the BCCI honchos and asks them to include him in the team in the middle of the ongoing test...maybe in the 2nd innings. Something like a super-sub in tests where a new player could be included. BCCI, being the paisa power that it is decides to implement it and includes him in the team. ICC obviously gets mad but allows BCCI to do that after convening 2 meetings in Switzerland. Ehsan Mani, being a good Pakistani, laments that Indian board and its players have no discipline but acquiesces to the idea and Ganguly is back in the team for the 2nd innings. The pitch deteriorates after 4 days of play and hence ganguly is asked to open the innings. He hits a century and the world hails our dada. Kolkata celebrates its Diwali in Jan and everyone lives happily everafter.

Deepa,
One begged for India's freedom at King George's feet and we had to imherit his cry as our National Anthem.
Another, showed Kolkata in poor light which has been reason numero-uno for Kolkota's decline as a major Indian city.

Amartya Sen -I agree.


Tamilnadu has two right ?
Subramaniam Chandrasekhar and his uncle Sir CV Raman. Time for the third!!!

rajesh..iam not sure about ur accusation on Tagore...as far as i know, he never even accepted the "sir" knighthood offered to him by British monorchy...and i find nothing wrong with his "cry"...

About Teresa, she did not show kolata in poor light but in its true light...becoz thats what it is...the decline of the city is coz of the commie crack pots...

however i agree on ur last observation..its time for the third!

Mother Teresa, I was told, does not admit a person unless they accepted Christianity. So she was at best a religious worker .

Tagore penned our national anthem in King George's praise during the King's visit to India in early 1900's. To call it our "national Anthem" is mockery.

I do not intend to take away any credit from them for their other works. But then who cares for what I say. They have the international recognition for whatever reasons.
Before you ask me - I have not read Gitanjali or any of Tagore's works nor do I know Mother Terasa from close quarters.
