The Aussies have finally won the Ashes – they yearned for the urn, and earned it, after all. Wasn’t it a commendable performance? What with what was shown in England a few months ago? It was, indeed – and not just from a handful, but from everyone. A true team display.
Wonder what happened to the aggression the English put on show in their backyard while hosting the last series! And ever wondered what these whites would’ve commented about the craters had they been on Indian wickets?
Wonder why these seemingly intelligent, intellectual, thinking personalities – specially from the Indian polity – act stupid! First it was Modi, who’s venturing into building a statue for India’s unity. And it isn’t coming easy anyway – besides contributing, some running also had to be done. Now we see AAP, through SMSs, seeking a reconfirmation of people’s choice. Or is it a second-opinion it’s calling for? Does desperation for power show in AAP’s face? It did. Will anyone know SMSs were sent only from the Delhi electorate?
The diplomatic engagements, specially when there’s an escalation in a “friendly” country, seem so incomprehensible, what with the arrest of an Indian diplomat is answered by a spate of “unfriendly” actions here to the US diplomats. Why can’t we be upright first up than scrambling for composure when we are hit?
