Olympics - Just to be on Top

Just when did winning 2 Gold equals winning 2 Bronze? If you go to any major websites, USA is at the Top of the Medals list. As of today USA have 81 and China has 79. So it should be right, but wait a minute; China has 45 Gold and USA 26 (almost double). From what I understand the standing is based on number of Gold not on the total tally? God, people in America they always want to be on top man, no matter what. Don’t take me wrong, people here are nice, my statement is nothing political but they can't imagine a life with someone overlooking them (not even in sports).

Kamal – Dasavatharam Review

First thing first, I watched the movie for about an hour, and I literally walked out. The movie was horrible. I read some reviews, and I was amazed how skewed they are. Movies like Hey Ram, Anbe Sivam, Devar Magan were some of the greatest work by Kamal and there is no denying it but you can’t put Dasavatharam on par with those movies, not even close. Its hard to figure out why he does this to himself? Why a talented actor, writer, good social thinker does these sub par works? He should stop writing screenplays for movies.

A man who is marked for greatness is always an egomaniac, high achiever don’t live a content life, they always think outside the box. Kamal is one among them. I don’t think he listens to anyone. But I think he needs someone to fine-tune him. I think Crazy Mohan was a good fit, Srinivasarao was good, I forgot who wrote screenplay for Kurudhi Punal that movie was good. Anyhow, one day when I am bored enough, I think I should finish watching that movie, may be s…

How India does it? I don’t know!

During the height of the Cold War, India used to be a faithful ally for the Communist (USSR). Entire west and the countries like Taiwan and Japan was with the Americans. American allies prospered and India lost out on many deals. What did India get out of that deal? Kalpakkam and some broken MIGs.

After screwing around for 50 years finally during the nineties Indian politicians had a brain blast. They started shifting their alliance towards the American, which was ably aided by the collapse of USSR. Now, within a short period (10 years) Russia with its Oil power has started to flex its muscle. America now is losing; an unpopular and costly war, Credit debacle, housing bubble and low consumer confidence are pushing the country down faster than ever. America now is clueless, they can’t act against Russia now, heck they can’t even act against Iran. On the other hand Russia is booming. The only thing close to Russia is China. But Russia has something which China doesn’t; Russia has failed …

Olympics –

Well folks, here we are. The pinnacle of the sports world and the debacle of sports India , Olympics is underway. Last time when I made a prediction (during the cricket world cup in Caribbean) it was horrible. I made a bold statement that India will win the cup; they didn’t even qualify for the second round. Now, I am going to make another bold statement, here it goes

Shooting – 2 Gold
Archery – 1 Silver
Tennis – 1 Silver

5-வது முறையாக முதல்வராக இருக்கிறேன். இனி முதல்வராக வேண்டும் என்ற ஆசை எனக்கு கிடையாது. அந்த ஆசைக்கு கருணாநிதி அடிமையாக மாட்டான். இன்னும் ஒரு முறை முதல்வர் ஆக வேண்டும் என்று கேட்கின்றனர். நான் அப்படி ஆசைப்பட மாட்டேன்
