The Lion hearted captain and his cubs...

I am so glad for Dhoni and the boys in yellow, they came out roaring when it mattered the most! I was so happy for our captain, I was happy to see him smiling and modestly brushing aside comments (regarding the strategic placing of Hayden in the 19th over) saying 'It's no rocket science'. I could have hugged him for his demeanor and charming attitude... and when he said something like I can't wait to lift the cup I felt my heart swelling with joy. You gotta love our captain Dhoni; his grit, his determination, his nerves of steel, his gut feeling and above all his street smartness is what makes him indomitable. He's one of kind and he's awesome... another awesome guy is Raina. I like the way he fields, the catches he takes are amazing and he's pretty great too. Another player everybody has been talking bout is Murali Vijay, a good looking dude... he batted away to glory a few times and won us some crucial matches.

Moving on to other good things in life, the new Limca ad that is doing the rounds is so appealing, the tune is extremely catchy, both the guy and the girl are cute in an ordinary sorta way and the whole ad screams out 'It's summer... go have fun!'

Isn't the guy really cute.... check out his expressions...

Yeah, Dhoni is one of the best captains in indian cricket. Also good to see him leading CSK in all the 3 seasons of IPL. Its a team effort btw.

Raina is simply brilliant on the field and he is a gift to indian cricket. Never seen an indian player catching like him.

Murali Vijay - We(friends) call him Sura Vijay after his top class show in IPL3. Hope he will have a place in the indian squad..

Having said all this i hate IPL. I want it to be banned. Its too much cricket and it has become a crappy business affair. Im not seeing any spirited play. Some say its all match fixing, not sure whether to believe that or not. I love cricket....seeing IPL matches im afraid i may hate cricket.

CSK have done a fantastic job.
With the auctions opening again for next season one can expect lots of changes as both Pune and Kochi would like to bid for our talismanic Dhoni.

Let us wish Team India all the best for the T:20 World Cup.

Tonio, I think this is the only post you read completely without me forcing you to.

Susan, it was nice to be on the wining side :0)

Mahesh, hopefully Dhoni will lift the cup again.

Vinod, I too liked that punch in the face, I wonder what he said to himself when he did that. I liked the way Dhoni flamboyantly finished off that match in that beautiful mountain clad region, it was brilliant.

Santhi Nilayam, School for the Mentally Challenged...

After a long long time, I visited the special school I used to work in, and the kids have all grown up...tiny tots now taller than me and sprouting facial hair!!! I was flummoxed... gosh, time changes everyone and everything. Wonder what changes they saw in me... anyway, I was just happy to be backthere. Went early to catch sight of that yellow school bus turning the corner and to watch all the kids tumbling out. While I was working there, that yellow bus turning the corner always marked the start of an exciting day. Right from the moment the kids hit the ground, the fun starts... that place will always be shrouded in hues of warm sunshine in my memory, it is a great place to be.  On the way to school, came across a few students... The special school, Santhi Nilayam (means Abode of Peace)  Great place...  The school bus and the kids... The assembly itself is heartwarming, a kid recites the prayers and the others repeat after him, in their characteristic sounds and half utterances.  T…

The Ten Commandments of Christmas

Last Sunday in church, leaflets with the following 'Christmas Ten Commandments' were handed out and the parish priest Fr. Joe Andrews discussed them with the congregation.   You shall not leave 'Christ' out of Christmas, making it 'Xmas'. Christ is the reason for the season.You shall prepare your soul for Christmas. Spend not so much on gifts that your soul is forgotten (a good confession is a nice way to prepare your hear for Christmas)You shall not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality. (Prepare yourself with prayer and the Word of God.)You shall not neglect your church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the season. You shall not neglect the needy. Share they blessings with the many who will go hungry and cold unless you are generous.You shall not neglect thy family during this season. You shall not forget the elderly and those who are lonely at Christmas time.You shall not value gifts received by their cost. E…

Grandma's Caramel Cake...

Everybody in my family loves this cake, its my grandmother's recipe and it can be tweaked during the holiday season to form a delicious Christmas fruit cake. The ingredients are simple to remember, you just need equal  quantities of flour, sugar and butter and the cake is guaranteed to come out great. Ingredients 400 grams maida or all purpose flour
400 grams sugar
400 grams butter
8 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
dried fruits and nuts 
brandy or rum (optional)
I've taken 400 grams of butter, sugar and flour cause I wanted to make a large cake for Christmas. You can scale the quantities down to half and make a medium sized cake. Let's start with caramelizing the sugar, from the 400 grams of sugar that you have set aside for this cake, take bout a quarter of that (100 grams) and start heating it in a dry vessel. I usually drop in another handful (bout 50 gms) of sugar to get more of the gooey caramel when I plan on adding b…
