Federal Myth Busted?

All those who fought the goddess of sleep last night to watch among the better tennis matches in recent history (not the best) ... they all have something to add to what has already been said. I do too. Just for the record ... i rooted for Federer for this one (something I have NEVER ever done), and see my luck ... I had a few status messages to commemorate the occasion ... and only ONE gtalk id to put it on ... so here goes the rest:

1. Who won? :P
2. Federer's girlfriend without her dark glasses on ... boy, Nadal had his day
3. He is still human after all
4. No one owns the centre court : Simon Barnes
5. That @$$ Nadal : I rooted for him last year and he lost ... i bet against him this year and he wins ... Damn you
And the sixth the I actually put as my status msg : (what cud have been 6th for Fedex)
6. IT WAS THE STUPID CARDIGAN, DAMNIT !!

If you have your own messages ... add them here.

Reflections

महफ़िलें वही हैं, ये
जाम दूसरा है
बाज़ार है वही, पर
दाम दूसरा है

ख्वाहिशें वही हैं
खुमार दूसरा है
यार भी वही हैं, पर
प्यार दूसरा है

mehfilein wahi hain, par

sab kuchh hai hu-ba-hu, bas
khayal doosra hai
woh saal doosra tha
yeh saal doosra hai

The Year Of - Derivative Poetry

Embers, fires and slumbers
stoked, fanned and broken

dreams, promises, kisses
borrowed, begged or stolen

palms sweaty, knees weak, arms heavy
ribs bruised and eyes swollen

from earth, dust and ashes
rising
unbowed, unbent, unbroken.


Coming of Age

Sometimes, I just feel lucky to be born when I was, to be born in this time and age, to have seen so many contenders for the "Greatest of All Time" tag.

Lucky to be born in the age of Michael Schumacher and watch him beat record after record. To be born in the age of Lance Armstrong, for whom beating opponents and records was but a secondary feat. To be born in the age of Zinedine Zidane, most certainly the best of this generation, the marquee headbutt notwithstanding.

Lucky to have watched not one, but two legends, pass the baton in tennis.
When Pete Sampras lost in the Wimbledon of 01, it made fans of him hate that pony-tailed guy for ending his quest for a 5th consecutive crown. I know I did. But Pete shouldn’t mind that now, for over the course of next 8 years or so, Roger has shown that when it comes to beauty on the tennis court he has got the entire WTA beat, by a long shot (down the line).

And then there’s Sachin Tendulkar, whose one mistimed shot makes your heart skip a…
