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.

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

A Corpse in the Ground

Avila and Fatima

The next day after an early breakfast we set out to visit Avila, which is about an hour's drive from Madrid.
A video of the landscape in Spain... Here, we've just reached Avila... these Walls of Avila were completed between the 11th and 14th centuries and they are the city's defining image. We had a lovely guide, Maria, and she took us around this quaint city explaining about the fortress and the cathedrals.
Another video depicting the welcoming sounds of Avila... the constantly chirping birds over the walled city of Avila are quite captivating, they seem to beckon you in. Avila's charm...  The sun, spilling her beams... 
The church of St. Teresa of Avila Inside the church, mass was just getting over... The chapel dedicated to St. Teresa
The main square in Avila
So after checking out the church of St. Teresa and the museum where her finger is displayed, we started on our way to Fatima in Portugal which is about a five hour drive from Avila.

Stopped on the way to have a …
