The points table looks rather even. Every team has won at least one match.  Which goes to show that they are giving it their best right from the word go. Which is good for us cricket fans because we will be interested in all the matches, yes? No chance of it being a boring one-sided match or calling anything a waste of time. That’s the way I see it. I like.

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…
