The Phenomenon

Mahendra singh Dhoni is a phenomenon. He invariably seems to change the fate of the match single handedly. The way he played two contrasting innings - first one in Jaipur, which was so brutal and the second one in Pune which was so composed. Looks like finally Adam Gilchrist has some competition. And a damn serious one. Few of you might say that Sangakara too is in competition. But i believe Dhoni is way far ahead.

Best part of Dhoni's Jaipur innings was he played it after keeping the wickets for 50 overs !! This guy has an outstanding stamina. And he likes to end a match with a SIX !! That has happened almost six times in his very short career (Please correct me if i am wrong on this point).

PS - Raina too grabbed the only opportunity he got very nicely. His' was a very mature innings along with Dhoni.

PS2 - Finally these guys are playing as a team. Almost everybody seems to deliver. I think nobody will bother about Ganguly not being in the team as long as these guys keep on winning. I wonder where Kaif fits now? Yuvraj's place?

PS3 - I was one of the many who blamed Tendulkar last year. Infact i considered Tendulkar a weak link when he was selected. But i think he has made an outstanding comeback. Simply great.

PS4 - Way to go India...

Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Think twice next when you visit with a bunch of flowers to meet your pal admitted in a hospital. Flowers are an excellent source of a bug call Pseudomonas aeruginosa. This bug is a cause of major infections that occur in patients especially in hospital setup. These are also called as hospital acquired infections or nosocomial infections. So the bug you carry in flowers will definitely affect the other patients in the hospital if not your own pal especially if the setup is ICU where immunity of the critical patients is usually compromised.


Haikuz From Fight Club

Worker bees can leave
Even drones can fly away
The queen is their slave


Without just one nest
A bird can call the world home
Life is your career


Flowers bloom and die
Wind brings butterflies or snow
A stone won't notice


A tiger can smile
A snake will say it loves you
Lies make us evil


Watching white moon face
The stars never feel anger
Blah, blah, blah, the end
