Red Devils beat the Blues!!!!

So it finally happened... The Reds emphatically snatched away the Premiership title away from the superstar team Jose Mourinho had managed to build up. While the European dream and with it the treble will have to wait another year, there is still a strong chance to reign supreme in the domestic arena. The FA Cup match is just a week away and i'm sure MU will go on an all out attack to stamp their authority on the game. Thats the only way they know how to play.


When God created Fathers...

Got this as an email. It has always struck me that so little has been said about how much a father does for his children. I'm not taking anything away from that divine soul we all call a mother, but it always looks to me that a father stays a bit in the backdrop... silent n satisfied with his work. Not expecting anything but for his children to mirror his teachings.

Here it goes...

When The LORD Created Fathers

When the Good LORD was creating Fathers, he started
with a tall frame. A female angel nearby said,
"What kind of Father is that?
If you're going to make children so close to the ground,
why have you put the Father up so high?
He won't be able to shoot marbles without kneeling,
tuck a child in bed without bending,
or even kiss a child without stooping?"
GOD smiled and said, "Yes, but if I make him
child size, who would children have to look up to?"

When GOD made the Father's hands, they were large.
The angel shook her head and said, "Large hands
can't manage diaper pins, small buttons,
rubber bands on pony tails, or even remove splinters
caused from baseball bats."
Again GOD smiled and said,
"I know, but they're large enough to hold everything a small boy empties
from his pockets, yet small enough to cup a child's face in them."
Then GOD molded long slim legs and broad shoulders,
"Do you realize you just made a Father without a lap?"
The angel chuckled.
GOD said, "A Mother needs a lap. A Father needs strong shoulders
to pull a sled, to balance a boy on a bicycle, or to hold a sleepy head
on the way home from the circus."

When GOD was in the middle of creating the biggest feet
anyone had ever seen, the angel could not contain herself any longer.
"That's not fair. Do you honestly think those feet are going to get out of
early in the morning when the baby cries, or walk through a birthday party

without crushing one or two of the guest?"
GOD again smiled and said, "They will work. You will see.
They will support a small child who wants to ride to Branbury Cross
or scare mice away from a summer cabin,
or display shoes that will be a challenge to fill."
GOD worked throughout the night, giving the Father few words,
but a firm authoritative voice; eyes that see everything,
but remain calm and tolerant. Finally, almost as an after thought,
He added tears.
The he turned to the angel and said,
"Now are you satisfied he can love as much as a Mother can?"
The angel said nothing more.

'Beedi' - English Translation

The following is the English translation of the hit song 'Beedi Jalaile' from the hindi movie 'Omkara'
got it from my director... here it goes...

No Quilt in sight
This cold breeze arouses the hell out of me
Its best to share somebody's quilt
Go borrow heat from the next fellow's oven
Light your fags with the heat of my bossom

Its burning up inside me!
Let smoke not slip out of your lips
The world's smoked out already.
No crime's been charged
Why do I still feel sentenced to death?
Haul me to your court one afternoon.
Handcuff me with my anklets.
Haul me up in the afternoon.
Sentence me.
Punish me severely.
Light your stoves with the heat of my bossom.

Its burning up inside me!
No Knife's sharp enough to match your nibbles.
The way you leave your teeth marks behind..
Farmers could forget how to hack their crops
Would you settle down with a brute like this?
Nobody watned me.
Nobody woke me up.
Suddenly you come into my quilt
Impressing me with your clove breath
Burn your coals with the heat of my bossom

Its burning up inside me!
Its best to share somebody's quilt.
Go borrow hear from the next fellow's oven..

man cant stop laughing!!!!

the Devils smell blood...

Been away for too long... cant help it. This blooging is not in my veins yet. so it takes time to realise that i have to contribute. Well the most exciting prospect this season.. Manchester United taking the treble... this means the F.A. cup, the Premiership and the Champions Trophy.
The F.A. cup final is against a hard rival Chelsea who would be demoralized after their draw and Man U's win this weekend. And the Red Devils will be fired up more than ever before. Also in the Premiership, MU holds a 5 point lead with a Chelsea - MU game left and it looks like it will take something very drastic for MU to lose the Premiership this year.
On the European front, things are looking great. Though Milan gave a tough time to MU at the Theater of Dreams, MU holds a slim advantage of 1 goal over them. The worrying factors are
  1. A.C. Milan have a 2 away goal advantage.
  2. The San Siro will be very hostile in the return leg of the semis.
This season promises to be a harbinger of good fortunes for my favourite teams...
MU rocks!!!
Read this short poem on Geekhead's blog... here it goes...

Every moment brings something.
It might be a ring.
I know what a ring is.
I just have to defend against the temptation
Of picking it.

Every moment that passes by
Decides whether I will be a success
Or a failure like most of us.

Every moment that I am given
I shall be held responsible for it
A moment or a lifetime later.

Every moment that I spend
Makes the universe conspire,
Either in my favor
Or against me.
-- Alpha0

Inspired me to write something of my own... let's see how i fare...

A moment is but a tiny grain of sand, I feel,
in the vast beach of time.
The waves keep taking it away, never to give it back.
But generously keep adding to it.

And so I believe, that there are many moments that make who you are,
and each moment lived is a step taken in that direction.

And maybe...just maybe, the grains that the waves take so mercilessly away,
turn into pearls in the bosom of an unsuspecting oyster.

Live to be washed away in that wave... Live to be embraced by an oyster...
Live to be a pearl.
And blind the universe with your grandeur.

Massa Delivers a massive blow!!!

The Bahrain GP was a different story altogether. Mclaren's rookie Lewis Hamilton outperformed his illustrious teammate Fernando Alonso and also his more experienced rival Kimi Raikkonen. but the winner at the end of it all was Ferrari's Felipe Massa. With a cool and calculated drive, he not only outperformed Raikkonen in the qualifying but also went one from strength to strength to claim his maiden victory this year. He was denied this in Malaysia. Hamilton created history by finishing on the podium on the first 3 races of his career. This means that there is a 3 way tie for the leadership after 3 races. And this is the beginning. One thing's for sure, Raikkonen and Alonso never saw Hamilton coming!!!

Mclaren Hit Back!!!!

History repeats...

If this is the history of things to come...then this season will be the CLOSEST in the history of Formula 1. For the simple reason that Mclaren have come out stronger than ever with the World Champion in the cockpit and a superb rookie assisting him. The 1-2 finish at Sepang was in many ways better than Ferrari's finish at Melbourne. For one, it was Mclaren's first 1-2 since 2005. Which speaks a lot about their roller coaster ride as a team. But not only this, it's the sheer strength and reliability that Mclaren displayed at Sepang that makes things edgy.

Raikkonen admitted that the Ferrari wasn't at its best during the race. And that was shown in the first corner itself when Felippe Massa lost 2 places and also committed a mistake which cost him 2 more.

The stage is set for an epic season in which two young turks will clash to claim the place vacated by a Titan.

May the best driver win!!!
