Promoting Business (?).

The flight which was supposed to take me to Hyderabad was delayed by an hour due to delay in the incoming flight; at least that was what announced. Since it was quite early in the morning, I didn't bother to go and ask for explanation, in fact i was hoping it gets delayed further. Finally it arrived after another 2 hours, but that is different matter. Around 30 minutes later the airlines office announced further delay of another hour I almost laughed. The announcement ran like this”We regret to announce 2 hours delay to our flight ABC coming from Muscat and traveling to Hyderabad. We request passengers to walk towards the nearest cafe coffee day outlet and have some coffee to pass this time.”

And the thing that made me laugh was passengers queuing up outside the cafe coffee day outlet.

Merry Christmas

I will be traveling home in this last week of the year.
Wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Two days and two retirements from the cricketing circles.
While both were least expected at the time, the retirement of Harmision came as a bit of surprise. Agreed the bowler was struggling at recent times, but given his capabilities he could easily have overcome his poor form. And the fact that he is just 28, he would have had a good amount of cricket left in him.
About the other, probably everybody would have known by now. Considering the sublime form he has had so far, and over past 15 years, Shane Warne could have easily been in the side for some more time. Australia will feel the loss of one of the biggest spinner. And if the roumers surrounding retirement of McGrath comes true, it will be a double blow to them. Imagine two of the best bowlers retire from the team at the same time just before the world cup starts.
I guess if a bowler of shane warne's capability had been in india and he had announced retirement at such a time there had been protests against his decision.
