Torino Fiasco

When half the world is talking about Winter Olympics, our country with a population of over a billion sends a 4 member team, which in itslef is a big deal, I agree, given the kind of infrastructure that such games require. Just as we feel proud about India actually sending a team, just when people start talking about how India has arrived because we have a team representing us in the Winter Olympics and just when journalists were getting ready to write articles on how cricket is a waste of time and money and how winter olympic related games don't get enough sponsorship because of cricket and the greedy cricketers, we have this bummer. Shiva Kesavan boycotts the opening ceremony, effectively calling the accompanying Indian officials as shameless chamchas/jaaldra. Lets stay tuned to the drama that unfolds on the coming days.

...cricket worldcup kooda naama 11 peru dhaney annuparom(excluding sub)....11/1 billion ~= 4/1 billion....so statistically speaking we show the same importance to both....what say deepa...:p

these things will always be interesting till the winter olympics gets over ...a week after that we will get back to cricket....
