snippets to continue.. ! I kinda like it that way !

Its quite intriguing how kids change their playing habits, for a while its something that they are obsessed with and then suddenly its something new that captures their fancy.

The latest obsession my son has with the toy doctor set is unbelievable… half of the day he has the stethoscope in his ears and is listening to all sorts of things investigating the refrigerator, the floor, the door the phone, his toy animals gee… !

If you give the slightest indication that you have some problem the doctor in the house will be breathing down your neck with solutions !!!!! 🙂 😀


As I read more and more people suggesting Dhoni to play 5 bowlers or stick to 7 batsmen… I sort of smirk… they all dont get it do they… even Gavaskar’s, Shashtri’s and Bhogle’s too… the fact that differentiates Dhoni from the rest is the fact that he is his OWN man !

The media, former cricketers, crowd et all can go jump in the lake but Dhoni will stick with what he feels in his mind is best for his team.

A captain must not get swayed by emotions and judgements made by others and only follow things that he himself believes in as if something goes wrong he then has back up plans.

I still remember one of the best pieces of advice that Naseer Hussain considers he got was from Richie Benaud, a very astute skipper and thinker of the game. Benaud told him when he was appointed captain,

“Either do things your own way or dont do them at all !”

India must be glad even without that advice Dhoni comes straight from that school.

These days the one song that is always on my lips is Daaaaaarling…. aankhon se aankhen chaar karne do…. !!!! I just love the frenzy the song kicks up… ! Lovely twisty song I say… ! 😀

I infact even liked the movie…. Apart from the darkness in the movie… I envied Priyanka’s life as Madamji … wouldnt it be great to have such estates and such wealth which leaves you with nothing to do and all you have to do is to think of JUST living life… Seeking pleasures and satisfaction… instead of thinking all the time about how to earn a living to live a life… 😛 😛 😛 😛

    Missed being here 🙂 REally missed the irreverent and yet so very much there perspective on living and life 🙂 Nice observation on Dhoni, n captaining 🙂 Makes sense, when one thinks of stuff he has done, both successful and unsuccessful!

    Have a good match today. India fielding first na? Let me go and cheer them! God Bless!

    Awww… Hriday is such a sweeteheart!
    Hugs to the little doctor! 😀

    Indian bowling has been poor and the fielding sucks! But, Dhoni’s decisions have been decent enough!

    I loved that song too! yet to watch the movie – haven’t found the right company yet! 😐

  5. Ashwathy says:

    Haha hriday is at that stage where he has a dozen options and is exploring all of these out of his curiosity 🙂 hurray to the li’l doc! 😀

    Even I liked saat khoon maaf….even if it is a dark film. And yes, so much wealth with Priyanka Chopra that she goes around killing husbands as a hobby!! :mrgreen: Imagine!

  6. Badz says:

    Dr Hriday! It has a nice ring to it. 🙂

    Dhoni’s decision… Well I believe he should do what he feels is right rather than listen to other people. So you can say I agree with you. 😐

    And the song “Daaaaaarling…. aankhon se aankhen chaar karne do…. !!!!” gives me the creeps. :-/
