Kyazoonga Website has crashed ! as mad rush for 5000 Test Tickets available online from 11 am today

Anybody can open this website ?~ says Server is Busy !

MCA has messed up yet again ~ expect a Black Market for the Tickets now ! just like the World Cup ODI in 2011 when Tickets prices reached past Rs One Lakh in the Open Market !

Don’t think this Price will be reached for a Test Match even if it’s Sachin’s Last !

5000 Tickets have gone online from 11 am this morning to the Public for the 200th and last Test Match of Sachin Tendulkar to be played at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai from November 14 to Nov 18,2013

Dont even Bother to try as Tickets would have been sold out in the first few seconds or even cornered perhaps !?

All the Best  Guys who are trying for a Ticket!

Dhoni bats India into a winning Position in the ODI against Australia…but Ishant Sharma bowls to lose it for us !

Dhoni bats India into a winning Position in the ODI against Australia…but Ishant Sharma bowls to lose it for us !

Dhoni swashbuckled a fantastic 139 not out in 121 balls to take India to a winning 303 for 9 in 50 overs in the third ODI at Mohali……India scored 56 of the last  four overs with Faulkner being taken for 21 in the last over……at one time we were 156 for 6

Aussies were resigned to defeat having lost six wickets and needing 50+ of the last four…we were cruising to a win to go 2-1 up in the seven match ODI series….but then Dhoni got Ishant Sharma to bowl the 48th over….and we lost it!….4,6,6,2,6,6 aggregating 30 runs in one over was Ishant’s effort and Faulkner more than made amends by walloping 64 of 29 balls to take the Aussies to a great win….Vinaykumar should have been continued

India once again snatched defeat from the Jaws of Victory !….or you can say the Aussies snatched Victory from the Jaws of Defeat!

How can Dhoni and Virat keep defending a non performer like Ishant !?….the guy of late cant bowl,bat or field !…there is no fire in his belly like we saw when he was Pointing’s nightmare in Australia a few years ago…he lacks Motivation and an Instinct to win….bowls without using his Brains to read the situation

Like my Brother in Law quipped “Ishant should now be I’Shant (play cricket)”

I don’t think he will be playing for India again anytime soon in any format !


Straight from My Fresh Leased Heart on this The World Heart Day

Just recovering from a Cardio Vascular Affliction and have just turned 51 ~ so I speak straight from a fresh leased Heart !

I am passionate about my line of Work in Researching and advising and training on Indian Equities and commenting on the Economy and the Implications of Policies and Statistics~ Like Mad Scientists ,when I’m in Momentum I do not even look at the Watch or Clock and research and blog often till wee hours of the Morning ~ I’m also a Foodie ~ A Vegetarian ~ I don’t Smoke except an occasional Cigar once in six months ~ Am Fond of Beer and Whisky  and indulge in them moderately ~Oh ! and I’m crazy about Chocolates & Pastries ! ~ you may find it difficult to believe that I was very active in all Sports in my School,College and early Career Years and even Captained Many Sports teams ~ Cricket and Football were my favourites

Then in the early 1990s I began devoting all my Time and Energies and Passion to building up my Career and Business ~ never took long Holidays ~ just infrequent weekend breaks ~ worked all night in the office on many occasions ~ enjoyed various veg cuisines while out entertaining Clients ~ always asked for more butter on my toast and extra cheese on my Pizza and ghee in my dal and rice ! ~ love Italian ~ Pizzas with extra Cheese and Olives and Pastas and Risotto and Ravioli and Lasagna ~ Love Chinese ~ Love Continental ~ Adore a Gujarati Thali ~ Love Punjabi ~ Love South Indian ~ Love Junk Food …..what Food Cuisine do I not Love ! read more

When you are Happy and you know it clap your Hands!….and when you are not……!

I’m Happy about so many things…..

……proud of daughter and her School team of three bagging the trophy at the TIFR Brain Camp where they successfully defended their project “The Effect of Glucose on Cognitive Abilities” ~ 33 top students from 10 top Mumbai Schools attended the four day camp where they interacted with top neuroscientists 

…….love when Sensex drops and cannot sustain 20000 + levels as it will give some us interesting and lower risk levels in specific scrips to buy into….ideally would love the Sensex to drop even below my bottom range of 18500 I gave at the beginning of 2013 !….hope the US Fed obliges and begins tapering soon ! 

…….love to see Yuvraj back in form and want to see him regain his place in the India Team…he’s fitter and wiser and I guess more humble…and I’ve always loved this guy and his swagger !….he’s a match winner

…….loved the announcement of  Tata and Singapore Airlines launching their Airline 

…….happy to be recovering well and regaining strength and energy and appetite thanks in great measure to  the continuous and  overwhelming support, prayers and concern expressed by so many…deeply touched and makes me introspect am I this deserving !…had  an hours’ pleasant outing after 50 days !

……..happy for my cousin Bini Patel and her husband Gyan Correa  for their National Award winning film ‘The Good Road’ being selected as the India representation as the best foreign film  at the 2014 Oscars….hope it makes the final five !

I’m also not Happy on a few things…..sad,angry and helpless

……..Thought Karan Johar was a sore loser voicing his anger and that we had lost a golden chance to win when his ‘The Lunchbox’ was not selected and the 16 member jury opted for ‘The Good Road as above….I have seen neither but surely the Jury must have seen something good in ‘The Good Road’

……..Unprovoked Cowardly attacks continue unabated as innocent people including children and women are massacred around the world….An upmarket Kenyan Mall was attacked…..Suicide Bombers targeted a Peshawar Church….hundreds have died yesterday in both and even more have been been wounded

……UPA Government overturning a Supreme Court Order and passing an Ordinance to protect convicted MPs and MLAs from losing their Parliament and Legislature Seats…..this is the level of degenaration we have now stooped to that we shall be helpless when continued to be governed by Criminals !   read more

Impressed by Rohit Sharma’s Captaincy as Mumbai Indians lift IPL 6 Cricket Trophy

Impressed by Rohit Sharma’s Captaincy as Mumbai Indians lift IPL 6 ~ all the more satisfying to see him pitted against Captain Dhoni of the CSK and win handsomely ~ the same guy who is thought to have been instrumental for Rohit’s shocking omission from India’s World Champions ODI Squad in 2011

~ Warmed to see Wife Anjali & Daughter Sara do the Victory Lap with Sachin Tendulkar and the MI Team

~ Amused that the Fair Play Trophy went to CSK whose Principal has been arrested on Betting and Fixing Charges

~ not so Amused to see BCCI President N Srinivasan yet as President and presenting the Cup to MIs ~ he was loudly booed by a knowledgeable 60000 + Eden Garden spectators when his name was announced as Present on the Podium ~ surely echoed by Millions around India ~ BCCI chickened out this morning from chucking him out ~ probably giving him the courtesy of a Last Bow ~ he gave a Press Conference at 4 pm announcing a Commission to go into the Betting Controversies and reiterated he’s done nothing wrong and will not resign and his arrested son in law Gurunath was merely an Enthusiast and had no real influencing Role Play in the Management of CSK  ! ~ Yeah ! we were born today ! and we believe this !

~ CSK lost the Finals at 3 for 3 in the first two overs when Chasing 149 for a win ~ Malinga was the destroyer and nearly got a hat-trick in the Opening Over itself ~ MI too were down 3 early wickets but did well to recover brilliantly due to Pollard’s unbeaten 60 in quick time

~ One last Thought ~ IPL may survive but N Srinivasan as BCCI President & CSK as an IPL  Franchise  may not
