Editor’s Pick ( T20): India - Australia

Series tied. India won the first T20 and Australia won the second. The third match will be the decider. You have to admit, it is a lot of fun when the entire tournament depends on one match. The last and final match of the series at that.
Let’s take a look at how India did lose the second one. Considering the fact that India was on a roll, they were the favourites, weren’t they?
The second T20 saw Australia beat India by 8 wickets. Jason was the man. Anyone who had him in their lineup walked away with high points on the app. Did you? I for sure didn’t. Moises Henriques also did very well. And Travis Head. Shri Shri did and he won the top points.

The third match is in Hyderabad. Considering the fact that it is a flat wicket and tends to slow down as the game progresses, would spinners be a better choice? This is the first T20 of this ground. David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan know this place pretty well. Put in your spinners. The Aussies are not very good at tackling them.

Editor’s Pick: India - West Indies

First Match - Abandoned Second Match - India Beat West Indies by 105 runs. Third Match - India Beat West Indies by 93 runs. Fourth Match - Hmm… I don’t really want to talk about it.
Oh well.. Here goes. It was a rather embarrassing defeat. The series looked very much in the kitty when India had to chase 190 runs. The faithful Indian Fans probably even started celebrating. Even though the first three wickets fell rather early, Rahane stuck in there and hit 60 runs to pave what looked like a really short road to victory. And then came Dhoni. No one would have even considered the chance of a defeat. Not even a pessimist.
Time moved slowly after that. Or at least Dhoni did. He batted and batted and batted. Remember that time Sunny Gavaskar scored a 174-ball 36 runs? It was 1975 all over again. Dhoni’s innings were just as excruciatingly painful. It would have been worth it had India won of course. India fell short of the target and West Indies won by 11 runs. They were probably surprised t…

Women - Object of Respect, not Objectification

I had to visit the neurologist the other day. I call up the hospital and find out if one would be on call in the evening and had my appointment booked. Fifteen minutes before the scheduled appointment, I reach the receptionist to confirm the room. She goes, “ The lady neurologist will see you in room number 10”. I was stumped. What was the message she was trying to convey? Neurologist is in? She’s a lady? Do I want to see a lady neurologist?


It got me wondering. Does being a lady make her any less of a doctor? Why can’t the receptionist just say “ The neurologist is in?” And then I wondered .. does anyone ever say “lady receptionist”? No. Then why this tag for a doctor? Women today are just being designated to posts where they can look pretty. Looking pretty seems more important than doing a good job. There are actresses who have confessed that they were told by the director to just look pretty and needn’t worry about acting. It is a pretty sad state of affairs when women are being loo…
