Highlights IPL 2010

IPL 2010 would be remembered for so many things. Other than Cricket and Controversies this years IPL would be remembered for _____
1) Dhoni losing his mobile phone again and again, pleading on national television to stop stealing his mobile. I wonder what does it mean? Does it mean Dhoni is so busy playing cricket that he cannot take care of his belongings? But thats not true, because whenever he is playing cricket or flying around the globe he has to be 'connected to friends'. Afterall Facebook is the most important use of a mobile phone !
2) Abhishek Bachchan, after getting out-performed by his co-actors in any movie which has any other character than himself :-), is now repeatedly, daily got beaten by his clerk. Still, clerk gets paid less because he is poor, lady gets paid less because she is a woman ! But Abhishek is paid much more becaue he is Bachchan !!
3) Sehwag and Gambhir, both married, shows there desperation for a girl, allegedly Vidya. However, both cannot afford individual mobile phones. Probably, IPL fees is proportional to number of runs they made !
4) Bunch of losers (RCB, DD, DC, RR) who not even play poor, but also sing poor. I guess MI, CSK players would be happy that they dint get sponsorship from KingFisher to prove their singing talent.
5) Karbonn Kamaal Catch, Maxx mobile Strategic Timeout, Citi moment of Success, DLF Maximum.. Very soon we'll forget chauka (four), chhakka (six), whatta catch, bowled. We'll only know their sponsorors !
6) Sanjay Dutt asking Ranbir Kapoor (leader of Youngistan) super intelligent questions to get Pepsi and Sexy !

  • Reduced salt intake in food.. Dhanu always kept an eye on it as she always says this causes 'hypertension' :-)... still don't believe it, but believe its better to have low salt diet
  • Reduced Sugar.. but really couldn't control on chocolates!
  • more Fruits and Fruit juices in diet :-)
  • No time wasting on Orkut, Facebook....

Some quick updates:

Keep suggesting what more a person should do to be a better person, citizen :-)

Q1 Review

As 2009 was Travel Year.. I decided 2010 to be the year of improvement. Improvement in living style, enjoying and above all activities :-)
I have set 37 New Year Resolutions (sounds unbelievable ;-) hahaha)
I have tried my best to live up to my expectations (I hope everyone believes living upto self expectation is the toughest thing to achieve)
Now, I want to share my report card, not only because I have passed, but because I think some of it is Good and if I could influence anyone that would be really Good !
So here I go:
  1. Save Water: I have stopped taking bath in shower. As God Sachin asks Mumbaikars to take bath by bucket. And it really saves lot of water. Unnecesarry wastage of water in basin while shaving, brushing teeth etc. helps save lot of water.
  2. Save Electricity: Switching Off Lights whenever not required, Switching Off AC, TV from main power source helps save some electricity at least.
  3. No wastage of paper: I have stopped taking printout as far as possible. Another step was to stop taking water in paper cups provided in office. We require at least 2 litre of water a day. And when we spend at least 7 hours in office everyday we use paper cups so many times and throw it. Rather than this, I am using a sipper for water. This saves paper and also increases water intake.
  4. Activities: (I love to mention these)
  • Swimming: Started going for Swimming
  • Salsa: Going Salsa Classes, Learning LA style salsa (Dhanashree is most happy because of this)
  • Exercise: Increase exercising as compared to last years
  • IMDb Top 250: I wish to see so many of these great movies. I have watched 85 of them till now !!


  • Tennis
  • Squash
  • Guitar !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know that NY Resolution is a whole year project and I hope I keep improving the Year round.

Cheers to all my friends !
