Its not the money.

Me and muthu were doing our usual samosa outing on a weekday evening to fight out the boredom that had been creeping up on us throughout the day.. After a very lazy samosa session, we noticed a very old lady who could hardly stand, begging for alms at the pedestrians. Muthu, being the good hearted man that he is, decided to give a couple of rupees to her. I was in one of the rare generous moods that i too gave a couple of bucks to her.. When i first gave her the money, the expression on her face (of that of surprise and thankfulness) was something which put me in top of the world for that very moment and make me feel inexplicably great . I could not help smiling back at her and acknowledge her surprise. When muthu chipped in with his couple of rupees, it was her turn to go to the top of the world.
After washing out our hands, we turned our attention back to the beggar to see what she was doing. It was business as usual for her. The surprise and the smile was wiped out of her face and the poverty and pain was pasted back on her face, hoping to get the sympathy and a couple of rupees from the passers by.

I know.. its been a while.. I dont blame myself.. My primary blogs are hard enough to manage!! But anyways , i came across this interesting link today... As people might know.. BCCI has been trying (and are almost there) to gain complete monopoly not only over Indian cricket but over world cricket.. Of course ECB has been one of the major hurdles (European blood!!) but they will surely overcome that too..

Meanwhile, BCCI banning players who went into ICL and most recently its tiff with Kapil Dev has shown BCCI in a bad light..

Here is an article on cricinfo which superbly explains this

Listen to Suryan fm online

Today i tried out the online version of suryan fm the local fm station for chennai and many other cities in tamil nadu. I have always wanted to listen to a good local tamil fm radio station over here in bangalore (where there aint any..). There are a lot of online radio stations on shoutcast and, but somehow i dont get the local flavor. They dont have proper RJs and also they dont put advertisements. Then i came to know about suryan fm online radio station. All you need is a login and password. And you are all set to listen to the chennai's version of suryan fm! I love it.. and i am addicted to it right now.

You can also listen to aaha fm online. You need to have an account at for that though. And even after creating an account there, i havent figured out how to listen to aaha fm yet. But hopefully, i will do it someday and then i can keep listening to tamil fm radio stations online.
