Anil Kumble retires from test cricket

Well- after 18 valient years in cricket- Anil Kumble announced his retirement today. Hats off to a great cricketer! He will go down in history as the third highest wicket time till date, and the only bowler after Jim Laker to take all the 10 wickets in an innings. It is indeed good to see that all the cricketing role models have started to step and retire at right time unlike our heroes from the past. First it was Saurav, and now Anil. This is a much more dignified way of retiring than to keep on playing till your contribution almost becomes zero, and you start to drag the entire team down because of poor performance. ..... continue reading

If you are looking for the good old ‘Pestankaka’ katha- here it is. Just click on the ‘Play’ button to start playing. You’ll need Flash player installed (which about 98% of the computers have- so I am sure you should have it too.). Be patient for a minute while the application connects to server and starts playing- give it a minute or so before you start hearing audio. ..... continue reading

India loses first test to Srilanka

Just as I was predicting- all the super stars have proved to be dud one more time, and India has suffered a massive loss……I hope we don\’t loose second test equally badly. Part of the problem is there is no motivation for these ’stars’ to keep on playing either. They know they’ll be called ’stars’ and they know they may not make it to one day or 20/20 team, and they know they’ll get paid no matter…. so why bother sweating when you can watch match from a comfortable chair? ..... continue reading

India-Srilaka tour

I bet all the big shots in the team (including Ganguly who seems to really wish he was still India captain) are going to be big disappointment (Other than Tendulkar may be)… why don’t sportsman in India realize when its time to step down? They keep on playing till they can no longer perform, and in doing so they not only keep the young talent away from cricket team, but also make India loose.  I bet it is going to be a very close series. I hope India wins… ..... continue reading

मराठी भाषेचं भवितव्य धोक्यात आहे

मराठी भाषेचं भवितव्य धोक्यात आहे. मराठी भाषा टिकवण्यासाठी, तिच्या विकासासाठी पावलं उचलली गेली पाहिजेत… अशी प्रतिपादनं वेळोवेळी केलीच जातात. साहित्य संमेलनाच्या मोसमात तर हमखासच. पण यंदाच्या ८० व्या अ. भा. मराठी साहित्य संमेलनाचे अध्यक्ष अरुण साधू यांचा यासंदर्भातील दृष्टिकोन निव्वळ या प्रतिपादनांपुरता मर्यादित नाही. भाषेच्या प्रश्ानचा अत्यंत व्यापक असा आढावा घेत त्यांनी त्यावर तितकाच अभ्यासपूर्ण आणि प्रभावी असा अॅक्शन प्लान सुचविला आहे. महाराष्ट्र टाइम्सचे गेस्ट एडिटर म्हणून संमेलनाध्यक्षांनी लिहिलेला हा विशेष लेख. <!–more–> ..... continue reading
