332. The second chance.

If you are a first time visitor to this page, i would like tell you one thing- " This post is gonna change your life forever".If you are not a first time visitor, please bear with my lie about the first statement.

India went through elections this time and the country has given a second Chance to Manmohan Singh and co. Bush got a second chance too and we all know what he has done to the world. Hope Mr. Singh doesn't follow Bush's path. Is Singh the real king? We have to wait and see.

How ever, down south; in a little continent SriLanka, the LTTE were not given a second chance and after 30 years of terror and bloodbath the Tamil Tigers were finally wiped out by the brave Srilankan Forces. Hope peace prevails there.Now your mood must be sad and disturbed. So let me take you to a lighter topic. I am gonna talk about sports. The man in this picture is Lance Armstrong.

Lance Armstrong has come back.I always admire this man. The seven time Tour-de-France winner retired from competitive cycling in 2005. But he has come back. It would be a treat to watch him in the yellow jersey again. I hope that my readers know that Lance Armstrong has bravely fought cancer. Doctor's almost lost all hope but the conviction of Armstrong was so strong that he fought all odds and is now a living testimony for bravery, patience and waiting on God. He lost one of his testicles to Cancer. On a lighter side he can be the apt brand ambassador for the Uni-ball pen brand. (A note to Uniball: If you are going to select Lance as your brand ambassador, please don't tell the world that i was the brain behind the idea. I don't like publicity)

Now let us move to yet another sport.If there is one sport where 1000 men chase a Black Man's dream, it has to be Golf. Tiger Woods is a phenomenon in the sport. But Tiger is facing a stiff competition from the girl-golfers these days. The fan following for girlie golfers has reached newer heights . When ever a girl-golfer takes position to putt a hole, the fans take position to see the butt.[link]

Now let me deviate totally to a National issue. If you are a part of any Indian Retail chain(Reliance, Spencers etc...) it is high time that you re-design your marketing efforts because Walmart has finally entered India. Walmart is opening its first store in Amristar [link]. Walmart has kicked each and every retail chain out of competition in all the countries they have stepped foot in. So if the Indian retail chains doesn't react soon and improve their Customer Relationship Management, they might never get a second chance to recoup.

If you had read this post carefully, the point was basically on second chances. A second chance is given to people to change their course of action or to improve their performance. If you had been a regular reader of this page, you would have known that all the pictures on the left sidebar correspond to a certain topic. Chronicwriter has planned to include two new topics to this series.

  • 1)Red Underwear series (What started as a simple joke has made the readers to come to a conclusion that Chronicwriter is a red underwear fetish. So this new series is entirely focused on reader satisfaction)
  • 2)Chef diaries (Chronicwriter is also planning to educate everyone around the globe with his gyaan on the intricacies of cooking)
Not everyone deserves a second chance.

  5. that's an informative post... with the sense of humour a little toned down than usual... but all well-connected with 'second chances'...

    red underwear? ah, that's almost become an apocrhyphal lore in the Chronicwriter's life isn't it and not all the time with his own pushing? :P

    Cheers Chriz... and keep writing!

  7. Not everyone deserves a second chance...Is that why you are starting up with the Chef Diaries? :D

    With red underwear....you can introduce a new man in the world of superheroes far better than super man, batman, spiderman...;)

    So what Man you will be? :)


    PS: The idea has already been forwarded to Uni-ball and I stand to gain 20% of the signing amount for Armstrong....Your share of 50% shall be deposited in the Swiss bank ;) which you will receive when you come of age (18 yrs) (your age in the swiss bank account is written as 14 months as on 22 May 2009:D)

  16. Have removed your blog from my reader, bookmark and every where else without leaving a trace...Every morning after reading it I never get a second chance at getting things done without laughing like a nut case. My neighbour is threatening to sue me.
    Hey you can borrow the 50 stars from my Laal Dupatta photograph to put up on your red underwear as long as you don't act up all kind and put up my name on the underwear as a dedication.
    Uniball ROFL....

  35. Okay, one question. How do you get all important news, just curious coz people seem to have different strategies, and I just cannot seem to settle down into any. Do you just follow your RSS feeds/e-paper/other internet paraphernalia or is it plain old newspaper and TV and Radio?

    ReplyDelete
  36. yea, it has transformed my life, btw i was a first time visitor. :)))

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOLzzz... Uniball was ultimate. :)
    Awaiting eagerly for your red underwear series. :)

  38. UNIBALL is the highlight of this post! (The red underwear is turning red-der, I believe :P)

    ReplyDelete
  39. dude.. u cn get unlimited chances here.. ur fans are waiting everyday for posts on your blog!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. quite different from the usual fare, and must say I agree with the last line. Some folks do not deserve a second chance, but isn't that decision subjective too??

    ReplyDelete
  41. balls or no balls, i got photographic evidence of the criminal that you are...


    :Dtake a peek 'back' at the blog! you have the right to do so...

    ReplyDelete
  42. hmmm...

    I hope that Lance's comeback makes headlines for the Tour rather than the drug scandals that have marred the yellow jersey in the recent years....

    the Giro is going good :)

    take care bro... cheers...
