Vacations Over!!

I am back after a long vacation from back home... It was fun and costly too (cozz of Rakhi! !:P )
hehe...

On the eve of Rakhi, me with my cousins and Chachi(Aunt) went to eat some chat pakodi, and the shopkeeper asked me, Bhaisahab, aapki Rakhi ki shop hai!! :P
Look at my hand...
hehehe
and i said, nahi, but i have sisters in lot!! :D
and i m lucky with that, i have so many sisters that i feel lucky to be pampered by them!! :D

Also trying to catch up with all of your blogs but i think the backlog will take some time for me to do the act!! :D

But yes, the good news is that it was a great day for Indian Sports, and finally we won 2 medals in Beijing today (1 Bronze, and 1 more bronze atleast), so its time to cheer up. Hopefully this will make the government realize and take some steps towards the betterment of Sports.

Also to mention the fact that this country has a popular slogan, which is... "Kheloge koodoge toh banoge kharab, padhoge likhoge toh banoge mahan..." and i think its time to change the mentality towards the sports and sportsmen. They come from our families only, and we need to praise them for what they are doing. Medal or no medal, but them having the fighting spirit is what matters in the end.

Also liked the approach of Media too which actually didnt showed the cricket news, but kept focusing on the athletics achievement in Beijing. Time for some change now i guess!!!

Also, Indian cricket team finally won a one dayer in Sri Lanka and Mr Mendis didnt trouble them much. I hope in coming future they are not going to be bowled completely over by Mendis Gugly!! lolzzzz

Lol ! our pic reminds me of my lil cousin who's about 7-8 yrs of age.

On Rakhi, he was so hell bent on aving his hands full that he ended up persuading his grandpa (bua's FIL) to take him n shop for rakhis for himself.

Dukan gaya aur haath bhar kar ghar aya with the ear to ear grin on his face...lol !!!!

I'm still waiting foy my bro to earn so I could get pampered too...untill then I'll do the pampering job.

Rakhi jab mila use, yeh nahi bola k di rakhi sundar hai, ulta daanta k letter q nahi likhi ! Eh leh !!

Aur kya haalchaal hai yaar ? How are you ?

Nice to have you back.

Chakoli said...

Hehhehehhee

it seems u had a grt time :DDDD

behno ke pyaare pyaare bhaiya :DDDD



yups...three medals :DDD
congrats :D

rayshma said...

do din athletics ko praise karke media koi great kaam nahi kar rahi. if they maintain this beyond the olympics, then it'll be something noteworthy!
am really proud of the people who achieved what they did. because they did it despite being from a country which only encourages ONE sport - that too, one which is not even a part of the olympics!

waise, aap rakhi ki dukaan hi lag rahe ho! :D

gunj said...

@Rayshma

bang on... but if u watch indian news channel, they are still talkin abt it... i hope we just dont forget it like any other achievement... but at the same time, i think they are emphasizing the current state of practice arenas and grounds for money deprived sports...
i hope things change soon!! :)
