Re: Cricket

I fail to understand the logic behind some of the selections for the WC squad. They are going to cost us dear if things don't immediately go according to plan. For example, what is Ravindra Jadeja doing in this team? We already have 2 spinners - Chahal and Kuldeep. One or both of them are likely to ...

This mohtarma reminds me of the abdul who came to BRF and claimed to have an upper hand on things.
There is a simple line in Game of Thrones which perfectly describes people like her:
"Any man who must say, "I am the King", is no true king."

Re: Cricket

Now who determines what becomes of Smith and Warner? Cricket Aus? They are a bigger gang of thieves. It's like asking the wolf to guard the stables. These crooks will just ban them for a test and some match fees and claim that we all need to forgive. Why not the ICC with representation from differe...

Re: Cricket

I can understand letting 'sledging' slide or condone etc..as that's the way they play domestic or whatever and see that as part of the game.. but there was blatant cheating in the sydney test when ponting claimed a grassed catch hand and then had the gall to get righteous fury and say "do you quest...

Re: Non-Indian Films discussion thread...

Finished "Altered Carbon' Season 1 on Netflix last weekend. I had read the book a while ago (it is based on the first book in the series). While the show deviates in a major way from the book halfway through (won't give it away), still remains a compelling story and the visuals are stunning. A lot ...

Gotta hand it to Marvel. They know how to take 'B' & 'C' list characters and make them connected with audiences...something current DCEU is failing to do. Forget B list characters, DCEU is struggling with A-list characters like Superman and Batman probably the 2 most popular superheroes on the plan...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - Oct 2017

A few thoughts about the election I am relieved that the initial trends didn't hold and BJP pulled through. But it is clear that there is a state leadership issue here. BJP hasn't found someone capable of filling Modi's shoes yet. I admit they are huge shoes to fill but they need to get their act to...

The late glacial is 25-13,000 ka. So sea levels were already on the rise if we date the Ramayana to 7-6000 BC. While the waters may have been shallow, it might not have been traversible by foot. Ramayana knows boats. They cross rivers by boats. So why they didnt consider building big boats rather t...

Re: Cricket

I think we'll be fine in SA. In the past we got bundled out there due to pace and bounce. We've gotten better at that and the last test series there, Our batsmen did well for most of the two tests except the second innings in 2nd test that we lost. We lost it as our bowlers let SA score 500 in firs...

Yes, there is no iota of doubt that GJ has to be won by BJP at all costs. And if the business-minded Gujjus can be fooled by INC BS, what to say of the rest of us only. Saar, the business minded Gujaratis have voted in INC several times int he past. It is only since 1995 that the BJP has dominated....

Re: Cricket

How come the pitch is good only for Dhoni and SL? None others can play seam and swing? The team is screwed if none has calibre. I shudder to think of what will happen in SA. Rohit Sharma has once again made everyone's jaw drop with an innings no one else is capable of. Now he will go into hibernati...

On a completely different note, it is possible that like Jesus, Ram was indeed a historically accurate figure but the rest is built up.
Outside of the Bible and Christian religious sources there is little evidence to corroborate the historical existence of Jesus or anyone like him.

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - Oct 2017

One similarity between Goa and Gujarat is that a highly popular CM left for a national role and then things started going wrong for the BJP. MP had to go back to ensure the BJP government in Goa. That is not an option in Gujarat. Of course in Gujarat we don't know whether things have actually gone w...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - Oct 2017

BJP has been in power in Gujarat for 22 years. Regardless of how well they performed the anti-incumbency factor will be huge after such a long time. It is a testament to how low the credibility of the Congress has fallen in the state that they aren't runaway favorites to win, especially now that the...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - Oct 2017

The first one becomes easier if the second battle is won. If Congress wins in Gujrath, the entire victory would be tagged to Ra.Ga's brilliance, and off course that would lead to him becoming the party President till cows come home.

WB did a major mistake by brining in Danny Elfman. Apparently, Wheadon fired Junkie XL and brought in Danny Elfman to do JL score. Danny gave it a generic score which was one of the weak elements of the movie. If you have an epic score...use it. Apparently, Junkie XL had planned to have individual ...

Thank you Dileep saar and others for creating this! BRF without GDF seems a bit hollow. Glad to have this to make it up and glad to see all the usual suspects here.
