198. Lost!

The person in this picture is missing in the blog village for almost a month now. His funny bones were on a high till last month. He was in Trivandrum then. But suddenly he wanted to change his line of action and dived into the advertising field. He is missing in action, after the dive. Those who find him are requested to comment on this comment section and make him blog again.

197. o- LIMP-ics

Gay, Asafa and Bolt...
Three wind machines of this decade are battling it out for the 100 metre sprint crown at this olympics. All these three men have clocked less that 9.8 seconds to cover the 100 metre mark. It is gonna be the fastest 100 metre sprint ever in the history of Olympics.

O &M have done amazing ads for this years Olympics. Check them out... By the way, Will India win a medal? This is one everlasting doubt that we have before every olympics... The hockey team has let us down.. Will the Leander- Mahesh pair corner Gold for us? Why are games like Kabbadi, Carrom board, Chess,Kho-Kho not recognised by the olympic committee?

It is again comical to see an individual grasping the Gold medal in just 9 seconds, in the case of 100 metre sprint, where as in some team events like soccer and hockey, the whole team has to battle for one week to get the coveted gold medal. There should be some balance in the recognition showered to each sportsperson for the effort they put into each sport... Olympics point system is shaping up the secular way as always.. Why did I call it O-LIMP-ICS then?

196. NEWS

Four people from four corners of the country formed a band a few years back. They started singing Christian Hymns. They had a good time indeed, using their talents for God.
Now they are in different parts of the country.

This post is a dedication to all my four buddies who made NEWS. If you wannu know why the name, "NEWS"?; It is cos , they were from north, east, west and south corners of the country.

Lari- He is an amazing guitarist. He is from Shillong.
Daphy - She is also from Meghalaya. She is a very powerful alto.
Sonya- From gulf with love.. She replaced Daphy when Daphy went back to Meghalaya
Xavier - The tenor king from Goa.. He was the ever smiling guy
Chriz- Oh yea! That's me. From the southern tip of the country.

We had lovely jamming sessions and I really miss the fun we had in college.

In this picture,we can see Lari, Sonya, Xavier and Me (L to R). We were performing for our inter college fest. Memories sometimes pull us back to those days and I can experience goosebumps all over, as I type this line.

In the following video, you can see Daphy, Xavier, Me and Lari singing christmas Carols.. Hope you would enjoy the song,"Everybody likes to take a holiday"
