Path to Heaven

Stairs of hell I have climbed.
Thinking I am the master of my destiny.
The Door opened without any effort, silently.

What a mastery I thought :)
Plunging myself in the indulgence within,
Such a pretty place I have never seen.

Then I heard - whisper of Messiah
clad in a shabby rag.
breaking the silence, his voice rendered deep.

"My son, Now you know how road to heaven does not look like".

কুকুর ( A DoG)

থমকে দাড়ালো এক পথিক |
হাত থেকে খাবার ছীনে নিতে চাইলোনা |
আমি তো ভাবতাম ডাস্টবিনের অধিকারে -
খন্ড যুধ করা ওর পেশা |

A fateful night and a beggar



A beggar on a dazzling moonlit night

Decieded to leave the busy foot path,

His adobe.

Place, he was always deprived of his right:

to live.



Curious! purplexed, if a jungle can assimilate him

Can he come out of his lingering grim,

That kills him every day.




It was a fateful night, he crossed the highway

down the small lane, crossing the barbed fence,

Agony in his heart blown away by the strong breeze,




With the sober smell of wild flowers, Spell bound he was,

A fateful night, he striped off his frustration,

only to meet with his destiny.




A wild beast brought the curtain down of his show; finally.

He neither heard the claps nor any one to groan.

IPL and how other sports can get benifitted



IPL started jazzy this year and before the curtain can fell we got to read a lot about IPL organizers and so on. Certainly a shock when things were going so smooth.

Although I believe ICL (Indian Cricket League) took first step to revolutionize Cricket, I have to admit that IPL took it to a different height. With eyebrows raised towards teams and owners of the franchisees I would have loved to write about it, but I choose not to simply for my ignorance and lack of visibility on the happenings there.

I guess we can readily agree that all franchisee owners and the sports ministry (of course without their permission things would not have been possible) have done a great job to blend professionalism and sports together. A cocktail which have taken a huge number of fans to an instant hang-over!! Well done IPL.

Now the point is what could we have done better? Let me rephrase the same question- What could we have done better for the sports as a whole in India?
Sports like football, hockey even kabaddi were always popular in India. Only thing lacking was proper marketing and fund. An issue potentially could not be solved by infusing only money. We need to think on restructuring the whole structure or may be re-inventing the complete method.

Let’s try to see how IPL can help. Indian Premier League is a event which talks about sports but does not mention Cricket specifically :) . Some of you would have got it right by now!!!!


What if we bring in a system where a franchisee, like KKR or Deccan or Daredevils own a team for that city, they have hockey teams, soccer and cricket team under their umbrella. I guess people would start taking it seriously and who knows we may have a full hose show for the hockey match here. Some point of time we must acknowledge that one of the reasons for the popularity of the cricket match is number of match played and of course professionally organized international matches. "International" is the catch here as we watch the match and start getting into it as it concerns our prestige. IPL followed the same trait where prestige’s of cities are in game...
Why can’t our tycoons / film stars can again show their tempo and metal here ?

Home They Brought Her Warrior Dead

Home they brought her warrior dead:
She nor swooned, nor uttered cry:
All her maidens, watching, said,
'She must weep or she will die.'

Then they praised him, soft and low,
Called him worthy to be loved,
Truest friend and noblest foe;
Yet she neither spoke nor moved.

Stole a maiden from her place,
Lightly to the warrior stepped,
Took the face-cloth from the face;
Yet she neither moved nor wept.

Rose a nurse of ninety years,
Set his child upon her knee--
Like summer tempest came her tears--
'Sweet my child, I live for thee.'

Home They Brought Her Warrior Dead
Alfred Lord Tennyson
