Cricket -- Game of Ricket on Indian Economy

Cricket -- Game of Ricket on Indian Economy

I am just trying to address this discussion on the game of cricket from the perspective of India. Perhaps as a reader and if you share similar views from your country, please update them as comments.

It is high time that the game of cricket be seriously considered whether it is going to be a merit for India. The sportive game of cricket, as the time of Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil, I apprehend, is starting to get etch in the pages of history.

As a reader in this discussion forum at Rediff suggested, Indian Cricket Team are proving time and again that they are only tigers in talking and not in achieving.  This is just a personal comment and perhaps all the related CCIs like BCCI, ICCI etc can see whether some corrective actions could be implemented for these lapses.

  1. "Barking dogs seldom bite", "Empty Vessels make more noise" are well known sayings in English. Our cricket team gives so much of press meet, promises and assurances but when the real match comes, the tangible winning cups seems to be only in Utopia.
  2. During test matches, all Internet Connection and bandwidth of broadband pipes are just wasted down the drain for the score card which is anyway, ultimately does not give a happiness that our country has won the cup.
  3. Related to Point Number (1), cellular communications too are jammed of SMS Traffic.
  4. Productivity of the staff are severely hampered in many organizations as the employees stay glued to either Internet or Shared Television sets watching the cricket matches, without concenterating on the work.

It is true that there is only some marginal advertisement profits from these cricket game nowadays, which is afflicted with so much rampant corruption throughout. It is high time that the nation's administration wakes up to see the internal workings of this age-old game and recover it from the shackles that it currently suffers from.


Thats very true Deepak...
It hampers alot...even people lose a large amounts in Betting...
Cricket has becum more of passion than mere sport

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.
