am backkkkkkk........

Hey buddies... how r u doin'??? :)
Glad to be back to the blogdom.. And thanks alot for your support, mails and wishes.... am now slowly getting back to my normal health :)
It was like a severe jolt for me... I have a bad habit of ignoring my health completely, even when I know am very much susceptible...
Thankfully it wasn't something serious, I was diagonised to have dust allergy and viral fever... but still I gave a li'l scare to my parents when I went back to Kerala all of a sudden. I took a weeks off and complete rest at home with my parents to pamper me :)

There are lots of things I learnt in these two weeks and probably thats why God chose to give me these troubles to get to know certain truths...
One thing i'll never forget is... "things shouldn't be taken for granted always".
I've forcefully made some changes in me and my life style too... Hopeful to see some gud results...

Ok enough of these boring talks... now for some other talks....

  • Jus now India won the first ODI match against England. Great bowling by Harbajan.. and glad to see him back to some form... But pathetic performance by our batsmen. And the test series is one that should be forgotten. I somehow get a feeling that Sehwag is going to be out of the team soon... He needs to get some strict sacking to get him learn some sense of purpose
  • I enjoyed the Melbourne Commonwealth Games when I was at home last week.. Some great performances by our sports person. But, again against some weak teams... Nevertheless, lets hope that they'll be able to perform better in the Asian and also Olympic games. The shooters are the main targets for us to get some medals...
    And did any of u watch the closing ceremony? There was a performance by India too, since the next Commonwealth Games is to be held in New Delhi in 2010.
    I somehow felt unhappy seeing lots of Bollywood stars performing. Somehow this shows that we keep faith in these ppl more than the real stars who have won us accolades all around the world. Do we really have to show us to the world thro' these bollywood stars? Wouldn't it be nice to jus perform with some great dancers or musicians, instead of these Bollywood stars?
  • And now that the F1 season has started, am completely hooked onto it. This time the field is very much open with Renault, McLaren, Ferrari and also Honda... all these teams fairing well.... lets hope we are in for an exciting season of F1 :)
  • Ok, I know am talking only abt sports.. but, thts one thing I can't stop talking abt :P
Currently listening to a beautiful Alisha Chinai song called "Tu jo mila". I liked this song alot when the song used to be aired in the music channels longgg back and searched it in the net and got it y'day :)

Its sometimes frustrating when you fall sick.. isn't it?
You are not allowed to eat the food you like or you want.
You won't be able to work properly without getting tired soon.
You won't be albe to sit infront of computer for longer duration.
You've to take all tht weird shaped tablets and medicines..
You feel like sleeping the whole day (which I always like to do :D, but not when I'm sick)
Worst is you want to do all the stuffs that you shouldn't be doing, only when you are sick... like how I want to eat some very good spicy foods now :(
Added to the frustration, when you are sick, you definitely want to be at home with your parents.... and again I want to go home now... :((

Haven't been in the best of healths the whole week.. was down with throat infection, cold n cough.... And it has now worsen into fever also.... some kind of viral fever... :(
I guess am very much allergic to this Bangalore climate and the dust pollution cos I very often get throat infection which leads to a terrible cold too :(
Sorry to have grumbled abt all these, but somehow had to get all these frustrations out... so, got it out thro' this post :)

Something which I do at these times is continuously listen to music to find some soothing relief... and am doing it now too :)
Listening to some of my favourite slow Malayalam songs now...

what a match!!!

Wowwwwwwwwwwww.. who would have thought South Africa would win the match against Australia after the Aussies scored 434 for 4. They went on to win scoring 438 for the loss of 9 wickets with 1 ball to spare :)))
Man, this goes down as a great great greatestestestt ODI cricket match ever played and am glad tht i got to see it live :)
Awesome innings by Gibbs got the match set for the SA..
The match got jus over... and I was sooooo excited tht I thought i'll record my excitement now itself in my blog :D
Aussies got a taste of their own medicine.. am glad abt tht.. :)
SA won the series 3-2.
Ok then, let me enjoy the award ceremony now.. and my bet for the man of the match is undoubtedly Hershelle Gibbs :)

It looks like I had a mini break :) being away from the blogs for quite sometime..
I was jus trying to get many things sorted out and organised in my life...
You know, sometimes you feel there is no control on ur life and feel that things should have been different. Anyway, lets not discuss more abt this..

I would like to thank all the ppl who have suggested me some gud classic movies in English thro' my previous post.... Now, I have a gud list of movies to watch in near future.. May be I'll put that complete list of movies to watch in my blog so that some interested ppl can also note them down, provided I get sometime for tht :)
I happened to watch a couple of movies "Fun with Dick n Jane" and "Memoirs of a Geisha". While the former was jus about okish with Jim Carrey not in his usual form, the latter one was gud. Memoirs of a Geisha had some stunning visuals and costumes.. deserving the oscars tht it got for these. But, its a slow n a bit dragging movie. The first half was jus ok while the second half was much better. Zhang Ziyi looked fabulous in this movie :) I also want to watch "Crash" now cos of the reviews I read abt this movie.

Today being International Women's day, I wish all the women out thr "Happy Women's Day".
Here, this goes out to all the lovely ladies out there reading this post -> click here

I was wondering if there was any International Men's day too :) and did a search in google.. got this result.. check it out --> click here

On this women's day, a lovely song from Billy Joel - SHE'S ALWAYS A WOMAN

She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes,
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies,
And she only reveals what she wants you to see.
She hides like a child but she's always a woman to me.
She can lead you to love, she can take you or leave you,
She can ask for the truth but she'll never believe you,
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free,
Yeah she steals like a thief but she's always a woman to me.
Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants,
She's ahead of her time.
Oh, and she never gives out and she never gives in,
She just changes her mind.
And she'll promise you more than the garden of Eden
then she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding,
But she brings out the best and the worst you can be.
Blame it all on yourself cause she's always a woman to me.
Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants,
She's ahead of her time.
Oh, and she never gives out and she never gives in,
She just changes her mind.
She is frequently kind and she's suddenly cruel,
She can do as she pleases, she's nobody's fool,
But she can't be convicted, she's earned her degree,
And the most she will do is throw shadows at you
But she's always a woman to me.

Waiting for tomorrow's second test match.. hope the Indians would do better this time.. The English team looks good even without their top players... And, we have a gud challenge in our hands now.. Lets see...
