Ganguly Googly

The man is back. What needs to be seen is whether he will perform at his best or will we get to see a replay of Azhar's miserable performance under Tendulkar.

Dalmiya factor is at work again here, there is no doubt about it. Although the game is supposed to be bigger than individuals, apparently there are few individuals who are bigger than the game.

There have been instances of performers being neglected by the selectors in the past. The media hyped up a non-issue or was the media used as a pawn.??

Well dada ki dadagiri ka jawaab nahi...Will Chappell keep the ball rolling?

Hey thats a good idea, I think the BMC should put up all the suburbs for sponsorship.
We can change Churchgate to TATA Terminal, Bandra to Ambani Station and Andheri to Film Nagari [ Film City should take up the sponsorship ].

If we get good roads, excellent uninterrupted clean water supply than who cares if its ambani station or andheri station.

Email Fraud...continued..

Dear friend,
I seek your permission to introduce myself to you.
I am Mrs Suha Arafat,wife of Yasser Arafat the late
Palestinian ruler.

Before the death of my husband,I had to close my swiss
bank accounts and relocated the funds.I proceeded to
deposit the money as valuables in different private
security companies for safe keeping.This I did when the
French Prosecutors started an inquiry into transfers I
made into banks accounts I have in France.

Blah Blah................

What Do You Have Time For?

There's a joke that goes like this: "What three statements are never true?" The answer is:
"My check is in the post;"
"Of course I'm not only interested in sex;" and
"I'm from Head Office and I'm here to help you."
I want to add a fourth: "I didn't have time."

What this pitiful excuse means is either "I didn't want to" or "I didn't know how to" or "I was doing something else more important to me."

Lack of time is an attractive excuse, because it implies you're blameless — a helpless victim of stress, overwork and external circumstances. Of course, you may object that you truly do have far too much to do and something had to be left out. But who decided what you did in the time available? Either you set those priorities yourself, or you're the helpless slave of some all-consuming power that decides how you spend every moment of your time.

What is a Nigerian Email Fraud??

Dear Mumbaites,

Some nigerians have been arrested lately for the famous email fraud.I received this email. The email looks like below. Those who fall in the trap, are asked to shell out some money for a bag full of scrap, which they insist on opening later.

Read ahead.....

Dear friend,

I am a consultant with the federal ministry of works
and housing here in Nigeria, and I represent a group
of top Government Officials that is interested in
engaging your service as manager for investment
Purposes of a large volume of fund in your humble
country. The major thing I need from you is assuring
me safety of this money when it finally gets to you.
Further information and arrangement will commence as
soon as trust; confidence and good working
relationship is established between us. I shall be
most grateful if you maintain the Confidentiality of
this matter. Please confirm your interest via the
below email address.

However, the fact is that there was an over-inflated
contract that was executed for Ministry of Works and
housing worth $32 million, which has been lying fallow
since the original contractor has been paid leaving
the over-inflated amount which was done by this group
I’m representing. They are in charge of the accounts
section and have perfected all documents to back up
the payment as to avoid any trace whatsoever which
makes the transaction 100% risk free. The issue of the
kind of service I request from you would be that I
need your assistance in receiving the amount of $32m
and thereafter you invest it for a period of 2 years.
Secondly, you would be entitled to 20% of the total
fund in question as the fund manager while 5% will be
set aside for any sundry expenses incurred by both
parties in the course of this transaction.

Meanwhile, I believed that you would be able to handle
this project trustworthiness and confidentially as
this is only what I demand from you as to protect my
highly exalted position without denting my image and
person in this regards. I really need your assurance
and I want you to give me your maximum co-operation as
far as this project is concerned.

I have a wife with seven children; four girls, three
boys and I want to ensure that their future is secured
financially with this project,therefore, you can
understand my position towards this issue. I implore
you to include your private telephone, fax for safer
and more confidential communication. Please if this
proposal is acceptable to you, kindly get back to me
immediatly, so that we can work out the procedure for
the execution of this transaction. You can get back to
me on May God bless you.

Natwar's Exit

The PM and Sonia have once again removed the gas from BJP's ballon, by wresting the portfolio from natwar and sent correct signals to other partymen by keeping natwar as a minister without portfolio proving that the party will not ditch them on the basis of allegations only.

It will do natwar good to wait for the probe to get over if he is not guilty, and if he is guilty he may well be out of sonia's favour forever.

“I decided to acknowledge my fears and close off my exits.

Suddenly, my workplace became a place filled with people doing their best to either avoid deeper dilemmas or face them and grow.

The previous importance of titles and roles began to melt away before my eyes. . . . My own change of perspective led me to see a new organization without having changed anyone but myself.” — JEREMY FISH
