Banter

·The recession in the economy is reflected in the size and weight of the daily edition of ‘Mumbai Mirror’. Guess there are no advertisements given by the small and big companies now a days so much so that it has become easier to handle the daily edition. At last, some good that the recession has done.

·'I want to see my mom’ says terrorist Kasab. Quite heart rending. But what about the wailings of those children who lost their mothers, and of those mothers who lost their children in the recent killings. Kasab, remember: “ the mills of God grind slowly, but surely”.

·Pakistani cricketer and ex captain, Rashid Latif is seem to be moaning that cricket playing countries seem to be going to India despite the recent killings , only because of the cricketers’ greed for big money is seen in India. Rashid seems to be blind to what the world sees in India, and to what is abundantly missing in Pakistan. Rashid, open your eyes and look at things happening too close at home. The ‘India Imagery’ is not your cup of tea. One requires elan and taste to appreciate this.

·Interesting to read millionaire John Haynes has written to soccer ace Cristiano Ronaldo dumping his wife Olena Haynes as a cheater and a liar and that she come with a health warning like one finds on cigarettes packets – ‘Injurious to health’.

·Finally, the thing I read somewhere – ‘If you cannot annoy somebody, what’s the point writing’.

The recession is doing some good ! Atleast to the forests !!

And that last line...seems to me was written out for neophytes like me..! Atleast thats a guilt that permeates !!

When i think of that and the fact that the mills of God...well, i wriggle.

Latif has every reason to complain since even months after any kind of terrorist attack, the 'white' cricket teams don't dare touch it with a barge-pole.... but like you said, the age of hyphenating India with Pakistan is over, we are in a different zone altogether..

Mr.Rashid Latif!!

The whole world and especially the cricketing knows India and more about Pakistan.

You can say the English cricketers came to India for big money.

English media and former cricketers strongly believe the Test series should go on and not allow the terrorists to succeeed in spreading fear. The cricketing world demonstrated unprecedented solidarity with India.

Mr.Latif!!! Have you ever seen this happening with Pakistan. Sorry Mr.Latif, BCCI is not paying former cricketers and English Press.
