This edition of the Internationally famous Kolkata Book Fair couldnt unviel its full potential amidst the turmoil between literature and environement. The Environmentalist protest against the fair, to take place in the conventional long plcae, the Kolkata Maidan, at the heart of the city. Their point of validation being the fact that after the Fair gets over, the Book Fair Guild dont pay a heed to the garbage heap the place and the grounds become.
The epitome of sucess and fame the book had reached, such a huge place is always required and any other alternative, followinf the Indain Army's intervention in the matter also, Park Circus Maidan couldnt suit the needs. Many names like the Yuva Bharati Krirangan periphery (Venue of last year's Book Fair) and also other places like the Netaji Indoor Stadium is also proposed. When the Park Circus maidan couldnt suffice the requirement followed by the Calcutta Hugh Court order against the fair tio take place in such places, many writers like Sunil Gangopadhyay and even the WB Chief Minsiter had showed concerns to find out an alternative!
Lets see whats the fate of the Internationally famous Kolkata Book Fair, with its 2008's edition under jeopardy!

After lotz and lotz of controversies, it came true that, the Aussies can play the game silently. But, what resulted in a silent draw. The are good sledgers and they have won the game and shown the world the way by that means. This is true... a grave reality!

January 2008: WACA, Perth. Australia vs India. The rivals were common, The battle ground different. The target similar. Aussies yet again to set a record with the 17th straight win. India might not have faced a follow on, but the emotional daram that tainted the Gentleman image of the game was already paid, with the brawl between Andrew Symonds (Aus) and Harbhajan Singh (Ind) in the previous test at SCG, Sydney. On the word Monkey!!! RP Singh uprooted the leg wick of the wicket, and India realised that the have again punctured the Australian dream to set the 17 TEST win record. 7 years down the line, it was a sweet win.
the score card: 330 all out India
212 all out Australia
294 all out India.
340 all out Australia.
India won by 72 runs.
A mile stone well achieved was by Anil Kumble as he became the third man in World Cricket History to cross the 600th wicket mark, which he did in the First Innings itself!
please refer to those glorious moments in the Sony W700i recordings, Somnath Paul.

When the exams were on the verge of ending up, it felt to be in an abyss with all the postponement starting from minor problems some where or the other. This is supposedly the last ever tour as students in PG. So its going to be hell of a party. Apart from visiting to the natural beauties of the region like Hirni Falls and Rumkini Devi Temple, and the banks of River SubarnaRekha, there will be one old companion of mankind... liquor.
Take it this way or the other, the fact was specifically targetted towards having the liquor, but the hastles and bustles of academic life deserves a break.
Life gets abased with such a pressure. To make it aloofed, lets party.. not abduct from life, but to get the taste of the acidulous monotonous life altered a little with the acrid liquid and sweet scenery.

There you go... Andrew Symonds, The Baboon and Ricky Ponting. The sledging accusation to the MOST dignified nation of the World, is an offence which the Baboonic and The Monkey like Australians alledged to the fellow Indian mate, Harbhajan Singh is really not very degraceful act, but also shows that How the Australians are ill charactered..rather say Characterless stinkies in the World of Modern Cricket!
As for Indian Team..play on Boys in Blues. We have the morale of Gandhiji, We have the fighting spirit of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and Bhagat Singh, We have the valor of Rana Pratap and Rani Jhanshi, we have the bravest legacies of the the Greatest People the world have ever seen in their stupid lives! We are with You!
