Barca vs Manu

Well the clash of the season is almost 24 hours away.If you are a football fan your heart would be pounding with anticipation.

I am supporting Barca , not because I don't like Manu but mostly because of the quality football they play.Their ball possession can take the opposition apart.They have the strongest mid field and Messi needs no introduction.

The best part is that our football team will be watching the match together and once again I will get the feel of watching matches at college.Do catch the action on Ten Action Plus tomorrow night at 10:30.

If you are supporting Barca then say with me : Go Barca!!!

If you are a Manu Supporter:  Bhaag D.KBose

Ranchilona United

Do you remember the pleasure of returning home after a long and hectic semester at college?A time when you could not resist leaning from the train door to let the damp wind brush past you and every mile covered making you happier that home is not far.

Coming back  home  in the summer holidays from my College at Chennai was happiness plus respite from the heat.The last 4 hours of the journey was always spent on the foot board of the train.As the train went past the rocky terrain my mind always drifted to the football field at home.It was to be yet another summer of football.Most of the times it was just for a few days owing to summer projects but non the less it was so precious that even if I went home for 2 days I would make a point to be at the football field.

This year has been rather a long summer of football and unlike the past years this was the year when i waited for my team to reunite.I have learnt the importance of making like minded friends in life and my team here consists of  such football crazy people like me.I have surprised myself many a times on my commitment to the game and have been stunned by many others too.Someone has rightly said,"In true love the smallest distance is too great,and the greatest distance can be bridged." We as a team have bridged all distances and made it a point to meet every summer for football.Today was our first match of the season with the full team around and we won 5-1.

There are some things in life which should be felt and no prose could enumerate the beauty of a moment so eternal.On a summer evening after a game of football the team is lying on their backs facing the moon.The ball is in the center and our feet touching the ball, forming a circle.A cool breeze carrying the aroma of fresh rain, fragrance of scented flowers and carrying all those elements which lacked in the cool breeze of the train journeys. Someone says how he would have loved to be born in Europe or even Africa and then how  everyone wishes the same secretly.
I have spent the last few years thinking everyday of a plan which would connect me to football professionally.I know one day I will get and answer and that day is not far. 

Team : Bottom(L-R)-me, mama,tuktuk,rahul,pandaand amit.

I Hate

Hi People , sort of stuck up in academic work so not finding enough time to blog .Lots of books are resting on my bookshelf and had to take a break from them too.Will be back with more book reviews in June.Meanwhile a short post on what I hate most and would like to know if you share any of these with me just to remind that the blogger is still here.

1) Tell someone that you love running and generally run 5-7 km a day and get a reply ,"He he he , I can't even run a few meters." Strong hate for such people.

2)I sometimes feel that people see their bike or car horn as a toy and keep on blaring.Come on! be responsible people.

3)People talking while a football game is in progress.

4) Someone breaking a queue, my blood boils, be ready for a duel.

5)Met a young lady in the half marathon in Kolkata. She had been living in Kolkata for years and to a complete stranger she says,"Oh! Kolkata is a village." Don't know when people will appreciate things as they are.

6)People with paunches, don't know why it throws that lazy impression.Saw a guy with a big paunch wearing a T-Shirt which had a quote,"Be the change you want to see in the world."

7)People who cry every time they get drunk.

8) People who laugh when I say,"I don't have a Girl Friend or I deleted my Facebook account." It is my choice dude/dudess mind your own business.

9)Really hate when someone does not come on the scheduled time.

10)Hate woman who wear a lot of make up.

Specific hates : Shopping Malls, Twilight Series , Manchester United ,Mumbai Indians, Mobile Phones, Geography , Pumpkins , Shahrukh Khan , Katrina Kaif ,Karan Johar , HRs , Emmanuel Adebayor, Javed Miadad , Reality Shows , E-Books, Sharad Pawar , Karunanidhi , Sania Mirza , Akshay Kumar , Anu Malik,Golf , Christiano Ronaldo, Paul Collingwood, CCD, Arjun Singh,Pink,Dhosas,Whiskey, Sweets, Pakistan, Eboue,Presentations.
