And, for one more Saturday, a few stray thoughts and a few general observations and a few points of view (all my own work):
Like I appreciate the imagery, Mr. Devi Lal, like, a wounded lion, roaming about the country.
And I do think he has been given a raw deal. You encourage a man, you allow him to say and do what he likes, and then ou dismiss him over a triflic such as a forget letter that he received and passed on to the appropriate quarters.
Like politics is a strange thing. When Mr. Benazir Bhutto came to power, we though the relations between India and Pakistan would improve. Now that the puppets of the military have returned to government, we think the relations would improve. And, at least, from the first day of the new talks between the two countries, they seems to be
And now it is definite, there will never be democracy in Pakistan.
And, I think, President Bush is a very brave man, if not a wise one, to have American troops committed to what may turn out to be another Vietnam. And Mr. Gorbachov is only a less brave in committing his troops to what may be another Afghanistan.
And Turkey is a brave country to have capped fraq's pipelines and thereby invited the wrath of Saddam Hussein on it. And in Turkey's behaviour, there is a lesson for the Arab countries.
Like I maintain that among all these India is an oasis of civillesed democracy. And Indian democracy works, no matter what some people may say; bad governments are dismissed and those which give hopes of being good governments are elected.
And these stray thoughts:
Like we are going to lose this Test also. And by the same large margin.
Like ever since Prasanna and Chandrashekhar and Bedi retired, we have not had a chance of bowling out the opposition in two innings in a match.
Meanwhile, in Pakistan, where they eat the same food that our North Indians do, and possess the same IQ and grit as our North Indians, they are producing fast bowler, after fast bowler, after fast bowler,
Like, perhaps, it was wise not to waste money on TV coverage of the Tests.
And this final point of view:
That it must be rotten twist of fate for the Indians in Kuwait; suddenly their dinars have turned into rupees.
