It’s been a mad week (office work, band, band work, home, home work, folks, friends etc.) hence the delay in blog post. Now I will be fined my match fee by TAAQ management for this delay…grrrrr Anyway…
Missed the maiden gig wish I had missed the India Bangladesh match instead. Whaaat’s with these Indians man???… i think we need more mallus in our cricket team…. bleddy pandaram!
I’ve heard this ‘saying’ type thing :- 1 Indian s/w engineer is greater than 10 American s/w engineers put together but 10 Indian s/w engineers put together is worse than 1 American s/w engineer
Point being Indians suck when it comes to working as a team. There is so much potential in the individuals but when you put them together it gets all messed up. On the other side of the border our Paki bros n sisters also have their unity and team work issues but when they get together they can sometimes create magic…but then there’s no stop to that unity and team togetherness etc…it just goes off onto the other extreme and they collectively go nuts..all grow long beards and bring in religion into their sport etc etc its crazy!….then there is match fixing and the death of their coach and then getting the team to play again under such terrible conditions. It’s horrible….
It stops becoming a sport after a while.
I wonder if professionalism is the answer to good team work. I wonder if Professionalism exists in our wonderful Indian culture. We’ve had great individual stars, the Aryabhata’s and Tagor’s and mmm ok Sachin’s etc but very few Indian TEAMS that rocked on a world stage.
Then again professionalism could spoil the natural spirit of the sport… the magic and the uncertainty and unpredictability goes off… guess Professionalism in Sportsmanship and Musicianship kinda works the same way. Professional Musician/Artist….now is that an oxymoron? Should it be one? mmm ill go there some other time..
Coming back to sport these Aussies are great. No matter how professional they are about it they always enjoy their game, they have a blast. And If.. and a big IF they lose, they are the first to congratulate the other team and acknowledge that their opponents played better than them. I think our cricket team is good and if.. and a big IF we beat Sri Lanka on Saturday then its gonna be one hell of a killer ride ahead.
In the music/art scene the best part is that there is no winner or loser. Iron Maiden, another great TEAM that’s been at it together for what 40+ years… super guys.
I think Bruce Dickenson has some mallu blood somewhere in him and Steve Harris chetan is definitely from Kottayam
Oops its 2.00pm appol…lal salaam, rajeev
