The match is between Sri Lanka and India. With Srilanka looking quite comfortable at the top of the group C in the Cricket World Cup, 2007, India still has to fight for its existence and move into the Super 8. With a world record win in the records as well as teh WC highest score of 413 against minnows Bermuda, the team looks confident with the sportmen falling in the right place in the right dear old time. Its time, they roll over the opposition.
Such an incidence came some 8 years ago in the 1999 WC, then held in England. The then Indian team had many players who are still there in the squad today. India needed to win the match against SL, who too were fighting for their survival, but then the Indians had the better luck with them and what a match it was with Sourav Ganguly smashing the then Indian highest 183 in a single innings crashing the long standing Kapil Dev's 175 against Zimbabwe back in 1983 WC. This match of 1999 occured in Tauntan with Dravid nudging in a well played 153. It was some game to remember with India amassing over 300 runs and winning the match withoput ease.
Should the Lankans remember that, then its a tough match ahead. All the Best boys, may you fight till you have your blood running through your arteries! Best of luck!

Today, the state wide strike in West Bengal was nothing less than being successful. With Trinamool Congress ahead in their agitation, there surely have being some very bad incidences through the state. In the previous strikes, called by the same organisation on a similar issue, concerning the Tata Motor factories in Singur, WB, the situation was not so barren as it was today!

After the massacre at Nandigram, the Left Front meeting took place where the associated parties with the CPI(M) namely the Forward Block, RSP, CPI shruddered at one of the most illogical and mis strategical step taken by the Buddhadeb Bhattarcharya's government. The Union opposition led by BJP and the organisation of NDA has asked for a formal apology of the CM and also his resignation. And while this drama was setting in, Kolkata saw some pieces of violence in the 12 hours strike, from dawn to dusk. With the BDO office in Howrah ransacked and three buses being burnt in the Central hubs of the metro, the roads remained barren, and this is what I mentioned previously as difference between bandhs of yesterdays and today's!
Not a single person was seen to play on the open barren streets which is always the scenario in a state or city "Bandh". For the sake of humanity most of the people in the state supported the strike!
Picture taken on 24th December 2006. This was also a TMC "bandh" regarding Singur. But then, people did walk and some cars moved!!
There were some disadvantages like the State Board Examinations for Standard Twelve was cancelled and so was some National Board examinations, whose papers will be set specially for the State students sometime in April!
But still..the search goes on, as many children dont know for sure whether they are orphans or still have their loved ones praying for them! Still the villagers flea away from their homeland, just for the sake to live! The Right to Live have got violated, yet the government cant ensure the basic Fundamental Right, empowered by the Indian Constituition couldnt find its strong hold in Nandigram!

Taking decision in the heat of emotion is always linked up with the fact that it makes life really hard and uneasy to do! Today I am in such a scenario, where if I wanted I would have had become an Engineer and would have a job by now instead of pursuing Genetics as post graduation! But just as life become hard, no doubt, but if one has the will and the determination, then one can surely make a mark amidst all the adversities. That I am looking to gain inspite of an error! may be what happens is for your own good! I pray for my succes as well as pray for those who are in quite a similar situation as I am!
