Supplements are dangerous to health

Many youngsters want to build their body and muscles. So they got to gym and do heavy exercises. But there is another fact to this. Many people want to build their muscles in a short time so they go for other methods. Supplements are the most often used alternative. Many youngsters take in supplements in the form of pill or in the form of powder. Many of the companies which make these supplements say that there are no side effects due these products. But a recent research shows that these supplements create lots of problems in the body. It leads to ulcer, diabetes, hormone related disorders and many others complications. So youngsters have to be careful before they decide to take these kinds of supplements.

Leander Paes- Greatest Tennis Player in India

Leander Paes’s feat at US Open ended with the runners up place in the Men’s Doubles. Nonetheless it was a valiant effort by Paes at this age to achieve something like this. If he had won the Men’s Doubles championship then it would have been his ninth Grand Slam title overall. Unfortunately it didn’t happen. Leander and his partner played well but lost to a much better pair. They played against the second best team in the world. Now Leander is aiming for the Davis Cup ties against the Romania. Unarguably Leander is the best tennis player we have ever got in Indian Tennis History. All the Best Leander Paes for your future Games.

Was India misled or US deceived India?

A secret letter which was written by George W Bush was revealed out by a Congressman to the press. This letter clearly states that India cannot conduct any nuclear tests if it signs the Nuclear Deal pact with US. This has shocked its Indian counterparts. The American ambassador to India told the reporters that India was aware of the details of the secret letter. But Indian government strongly refuses the allegations. In fact New Delhi has admitted that they knew that a secret document existed but they also claimed innocence of its contents. India is about to sign the pact but this controversy has raised issue about the transparency of the deal.

Was India misled or US deceived India? This remains a big question in India.

Whatever it is Indian public needs an explanation about the deal. A white of the deal has to be issued to make matters clear.

Leander and his 8th Slam

Leander Paes has won the mixed doubles title in the U.S. Open. This is his eighth Grand Slam title. He paired up with Cara Black to win this title. They played superbly throughout the tournament and were the clear favorites to win the US Open this year. This is the first time that Cara Black and Leander Paes has paired together to play the mixed doubles. Cara Black is a veteran player in the Doubles category. They played very well to win this title. After the victory ceremony Cara Black complimented Leander Paes and said that he has got the fastest hands in the nets. It’s indeed a great news for Indian tennis after being stripped of the captainship Leander proved that there is more left in him to prove his ability. He is looking forward to win his 9th Grand Slam title by winning the Doubles in the US Open. He said that he wants to win French Open with Cara Black because he has not won even a single French Open title. All the best Leander for your aim.

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin has become a house hold name in United States of America. After the Republican Presidential Candidate John Mc Cain announced that Sarah Palin will be his running mate. It was indeed a very great surprise for everyone. Sarah Palin is the Governor of Alaska. She was elected by John McCain as the Vice President Candidate for the Republican Party. Not many expected her to become the running mate for John McCain. She gained popularity in America from no where to the front pages of all newspapers. So we have to wait and see whether she wins the election and becomes the Vice President of America.

Honest Bush

George W Bush has shown his double face in this Nuclear Deal. He wrote a secret letter to the Congress that Nuclear Deal with India will be cancelled if the conduct nuclear tests but in the paper it is not said so. Through this letter Bush has shown his honesty, commitment and most of all betrayed his own countrymen. There has been wide spread speculation that Bush administration cannot be trusted for anything and by this letter he proved his critics to be hundred percent true. He is great man living up to the expectation of his critics. So what is going to be the future for the Nuclear Deal?

Let us wait and see

Egoism in Australian Cricket Team

Politics is now hitting the Australian Cricket team. Their hero (once called so) Andrew Symmonds is now seen as villain. The team management suspended Symmo from playing in the Bangladesh series because of disciplinary issue. Its said that Symmo did not attend the important team meeting ahead of the series instead he went fishing. This angered the stand in Captain Michael Clarke so he asked Symmo to go away without playing the ODI series against the Bangladesh. Because of this Symmo is very upset and moreover very much frustrated.

But after the IPL there has been a clear split in the Aussie team because of their player’s price tags in the tournament. Symmonds was the highest paid foreign player. Though there are many talents than Symmo in the Aussie team he was contracted for whooping amount of Rs.5 crore. This induced ego problems in the Australian dressing room. Now this has taken an ugly turn and many Australian players are having a troubled time with Symmo.

Now Symmonds is considering retirement from international cricket. He has taken this decision because of the treatment given to him in the dressing room. So the same buddies who supported him in his tough times are now trying to get rid of him.

Mixed reactions for NANO

Now Ratan Tata has decided to shift the Nano plant to some other place. Due to the continued protests in the area against the upcoming of the Nano plant TATA has decided to shift its base to some other place. Trinamool Congress Leader Mamtha Banarjee staged a protest against this with the locals against the TATA plant. So due to this troubles TATA has decided to look for some other place for their TATA project. Madhaya Pradesh extends his hands to welcome TATA into their state. In the mean time many significant Bengalis like Saurav Ganguly has raised their concerns over this issue. They believe that TATA project will help in the economic development of the state but now since TATA has decided to pull its base they say that this will greatly affect the future economic developments of the state.

Street Dog Menace in Tambaram Railway Station

The menaces of stray dogs are increasing day by day and they are causing lots of problem to the general public. Last week I happened to go to Tambaram Railway station there were some street dogs which were creating troubles for the passerby. Tambaram Railway station is such a busy place and many people happened to throng that place so the conditions over there should improve but unfortunately the place is not maintained properly. Municipal authorities should take necessary steps to counter the stray dog problem. There are many organizations which are dedicated to the welfare of animals they must step in and put an end to this dog menace. The infra structure of the Tambaram Railway station is good but problems like this makes it undesirable place. So authorities must take correct steps to put an end to this stray dog menace.

College Life

I miss my college days a lot. I had a great time with my friends for the past four years. When I joined the college I had no one to my recognition but when I left that place I felt like missing everything. We are group of 12. We enjoyed like anything in this past four years. We went to a tour for Kerala in the third year and our bondage increased there. We had great time there. Our farewell was one thing which I can’t forget in my life. We really partied a lot and had great fun. Now everyone has got their own work and we are absorbed in it. Though we meet in here and there, we really miss each other. I can’t forget the class rooms where we had great fun.

I really miss my college life and my college friends.

Inflation Rate goes down

So finally inflation rate has come down for the second time in twenty eight weeks. Though it has not made that difference in the lives of an ordinary Indian, it has certainly shows a ray of hope for the economists. Many believe that the inflation rate may come down to a desirable level in a short time. Now the crude oil rate in the international market has also come down. Crude oil price hike was mainly blamed for the inflation rate hike. Since a crude oil rate has gone down, there has been a sigh of relief from the economists. But still the situation is gloomy. The policy makers can be relaxed only when the inflation reaches below 6%. To achieve that we have to traverse through a long way. Lets hope that we attain the below 6% mark very soon.

Wipro and Infosys pulling out of Chennai!!!!!!!

Many people in Chennai city will have a common complaint and that one is the poor traffic and road conditions in the city. Especially during the morning and the evening hours the traffic is very bad in almost all parts of Chennai. Because of this many office goers, students and common people find it difficult to travel by road. There has been constant complains about this but the authorities are not taking appropriate steps to check this. Now this problem is taking an ugly turn. After Bengaluru, Chennai is considered as the hub of IT activities. But because of this poor infrastructure and road conditions some IT giants have decided to pull out from Chennai. Companies like Wipro and Infosys have made open statement regarding this. If this is going to happen then the development of city will be stagnant. At least now the Chennai Corporation must take steps to counter this problem and make Chennai as one of the best cities in the country otherwise we will loose our economic prospect because of negligence.

India wins

India has finally avenged for their defeat in the Asia Cup by beating Srilanka in the ODI series which held in Srilanka. Though India lost their first match against them they came back strongly in the next match and won the three matches consecutively winning the 5 match series easily. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Suresh Raina played an anchor role in the batting order and Zaheer Khan, Munaf Patel and Harbajhan Singh bowled well. Many thought Mendis will be great threat to India after the recently concluded test series where he had a great success in his debut itself. But Indians approached him with great caution and I n fat played well against him. This a great piece of game shown by our Indians.

India @ Beijing

Indeed this has been the greatest performance by India in the Olympics. Indian athletes have won three medals which include the first ever gold medal in individual events and two bronze medals. Abhinav Bindra won the gold in the 10 m rifle event. Vijendra Kumar won the bronze in boxing and Sushil Kumar won the bronze medal in wrestling. Though medals were expected from other shooting players and in tennis but unfortunately none of them made a challenging performance there. But nevertheless the three Indians have brought us glory by showing commendable performance. Indians are expecting more medals in the next Olympics which is going to be held in London. But for now the nation salutes the three heroes who have brought us pride from Beijing.

Nano Problem

TATA’s dream car Nano is facing a great problem in the Singur district of West Bengal where the production plant for the Nano has been established. There locals out there are protesting against this project because their land has been taken by the government and given to the TATA. Moreover the opposition leaders over there are tying to take the political mileage out of this issue and staging a protest against the economic development of this region. Now TATA is trying to relocate its plant location. Many states like Maharashtra are persuading the TATA to come to their state and are ready to give them the land they desire. Now the future of India’s Dream Car lies in the hands of the people of the Singur.

Closing Ceremony of Olympics 2008

After 16 days of great sporting entertainment the Olympics finally ended in the grand fashion. The past 16 days had been great for the sports lovers all over the world. Many great performances attracted the appreciation of many people around the world. Micheal Phelps, Usain Bolt, Yelena were some of the athletes who made a remarkable showcase of their talent in their respective fields. In India’s point of view this has been the most successful Olympics so far with three medals to the kitty and above all that India got its first individual gold medal. Abhinav Bindra got the gold medal in the shooting and two bronze medals were got in wrestling and boxing by Sushil Kumar and Vijendra Singh. The closing ceremony was no less than the opening ceremony. As expected the cultural events in the Bird’s Nest stadium was a spectacular feast to the eyes. The next Olympics will be held in London in 2012. After this grand showdown by the Chinese the expectation level has increased and the British are expected to put a good show.

Senior Cricketers Neglected

Indian cricket team is now in the hands of young people. And there is a huge support from the management side too for the young team. Sachin Tendulkar, Saurav Ganaguly, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman and Anil Kumble are the so called seniors in the team. They are the senior most players in the team. These five players are considered as one of the bests in the world. But now many experts feel that their time is over. They ruled the Indian cricket for the past ten years and now they are finding tough competition from their younger counterparts. Because of increasing age their fitness level is going down which affects their performance in the field. Because of this there is a clear rift in team. Even the management wants young team and so they are ignoring the senior players which has created a great controversy in the recent times. What ever it be Indian public needs a better performance from Indian team. When that is satisfied then they are ready to support anyone.

Bad roads in Chrompet

The road conditions in Chrompet are far worse than the hilly terrains. None of the roads are in good conditions. Almost all the roads in Chrompet are either dug or left without being laid a new one. This makes the life difficult for the motorcyclists and four wheelers. Now the roads are dug for the underground drainage system so they are dug in the middle of the road. So it is difficult to travel through such roads. The big problem is that the contractors are taking longer time to finish the work so the residents are finding difficult to traverse through those roads. In a few weeks time the monsoon is going to begin so if the work is not completed within that time period then it will create havoc in the lives of the residents. The authorities must step in and take appropriate actions in order to ensure that good roads are laid before the monsoon commences.

Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt as his name suggests he is like a thunder. I have never seen anyone running 100m race like him before. Though he was expected to win the medal, the way he ran those 100m was something incredible. Especially the way he finished by looking into audience not caring about the finishing line and yet he made in that in a world record time. Nothing can be compared to his sprints. This 100m dash was considered as the best in the Olympic history because of the tough competition in the event. Adding more glory to his running campaign he won the 200m and 4*100m relay too. Both been done in a record time. Even in the 200m race he was very casual in his running and also finished that in a world record time. As far as I am concerned I hail as the greatest sprinter of all time.

Petrol and Deisel Price Hkes

The petrol and diesel process are high now a days. This is because of the global market crude oil rate. It is more than $130 per barrel. Because of this global price hike the petrol and diesel prices n the Indian subcontinent is nearly Rs.55 and Rs.35. this greatly affects the economy of our country. Because price hike in petrol and diesel means it indirectly affects the prices of other essential commodities. That is because the transport agents have increased their rate to accommodate their expenses. Ell products in the market are sold with a price hike. I got a SMS few days back which said ‘Finally the dream has come true the beer is much cheaper than the petrol’. This may sound funny but it reflects the pathetic condition of our economy.

Phelps- The Sensational

There is no word to describe this man who broke all records in the swimming in this 2008 Beijing Olympics. He won 8 gold medals in this single Olympics beating the previous record of Mark Spitz. He is none other than the swimmer from the United States of America, Michael Phelps. And moreover he won 14 gold medals overall in all Olympic games and creating a world record in Olympics. He got all the gold medals in a record timing which is another amazing fact about this excellent athlete. His performance in the water pool made everyone wonder about his skills and ability. He is considered as the greatest ever swimmer of this era. And he deserves that name rightly.

Federrer- Undisputed King

Roger Federrer is considered as the uncrowned king of tennis court. He was the world number one for the past 4 years. After Pete Sampras, Roger Federrer is considered to be the best player on the circuit and he lived up to that expectation till recently. But after the arrival of the Spaniard Rafael Nadal turned to be the end of a great streak. Federrer defeated him at the early stages but now Nadal has got the upper hand and has defeated him in the Wimbledon. Defeating Federrer in the grass court is equivalent to defeating a lion in its den. Nadal did that. And now Nadal is he number 1 player in the world pushing Federrer to number two spot. But still many believe that Federrer is the best player on the court. May be he is in the second rank but he is the uncrowned king of the tennis world.

Beijing Olympics

The 2008 Olympics began in Beijing, the capital of the People Republic of China. The opening ceremony was so grand that it is hailed as one of the best sport festive of the world. Personally I have not seen such a grandeur opening ceremony for any event in the world. The events in the opening ceremony were rich in the Chinese culture and there is no words to explain about the fireworks which lightened the whole dark sky of the Beijing in the night. Traditionally the Olympic torch was lit which will not extinguished till the closing ceremony of the games. Now the whole world is waiting to see what is going to happen the Olympics. The Indian contingent was lead by Rajavardhan Singh Rathore. Medals are expected in shooting, tennis and boxing. Lots of hopes are there for Indian express- Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi. India is hoping to get a gold medal at least this. With fingers crossed I am looking forward for the Olympics.

Abhinav Bindra

Abhinav Bindra has finally created a history in Indian sporting history by winning the first ever gold medal in an individual event in Beijing Olympics. This is first the gold medal for since 1980 Moscow Olympics where India came first in hockey. Bindra really showed a great character by winning the gold. He had a serious back problem and was not able to lift his rifle for nearly six months. Moreover his physicians advised him to give up his shooting career. But he was very determined and worked hard. Even after winning the gold medal he was very calm and composed. He has lifted the spirits of the Indian sportsmen.

Kuselan-A Review

Kuselan the much hyped film of Super Star Rajinikanth turns out to be one of the badly filmed movies of all time. P.Vasu is the director of this film with Rajini, Meena, Pasupathi, Nayantara as the lead casts. This story of the film revolves around the friendship between a film star and his poor friend. There was much expectation from this movie unfortunately it is far below par than the expectation level. The only factor which drives the crowd to the film theatres is Rajinikanth. Other than the film has nothing special in it. The music of the film is quite OK. Music director G.V.Prakash has done a decent job. Overall the film gets 4 in the scale of 10.

Inflation Rate Hike

Inflation is soaring up like anything. I wonder what our Indian economists are doing right now. It is a pitiful condition of our Indian economy. For the past five months, starting from the month the month of March the inflation is climbing high. This has indeed affected the Indian middle class society to a large extent. If this condition prevails then the middle class will find it difficult to have a comfortable life in the subcontinent. So our Indian economists must do something in order to tame this inflation hike and bring it down to an acceptable limit only then survival of our Indian middle class is possible.

Kung Fu Panda

I saw Kung Fu Panda recently. It is one of the best animation films released in the film world. The Panda which aspires to become a Kung Fu fighter ends up with the Dragon Fighter, the highest honor any Kung Fu fighter can get. The film is all about how well the Panda masters the Kung Fu in spite of his inferior physique. And this film also has a moral touch, which says that if we work hard and believe in ourselves then we can defeat anyone. I rate this film as 8.5. This is a must watch film for all people. No age limits everyone can enjoy this movie.

Live Happily

Nothing is permanent in life. Nobody knows what is going to happen in the next second. A millionaire can become a tramp and a beggar can be a millionaire in a single day. Nothing is impossible in this world. Its all depends in the wishes of the Almighty who has created us.

Live this moment happily and make others happy. Be a reason for someone’s happiness and for heaven sake never be the reason of others tears. We are not going to take anything from this world except our good deeds and name. So help others and make them feel the pleasures of the world which is provided by the Almighty equally for all beings in this world.

So live happily and let the others live happily.

Cricket Day

No Indian will forget this date for this was the same day 25 years ago when history was made in the English soil by 11 players who defeated a mighty camp in the Lords stadium in London. Indian team lead by Kapil Dev was considered as minnows against the Clive LLyod’s Mighty West Indies team in a deserving fashion. They surprised the entire world and announced the arrival the great Indian cricket in the world arena. It was a turning point in the Indian sports history because after that victory India became a cricket freak country. So according to me this day should be celebrated as the Cricket Day in order to honor the players who brought us pride.

Top 5 matches in Cricket History

Cricket is my passion and I would never miss any match. Though I am a great fan of Indian team I like the games played by other teams also. Here I like to rank some of the matches which I liked a lot. To be precise I like to present my top 5 matches which I have seen so far in the world of cricket.

First and foremost is the match which took place in the Lords ground in the year 1983 on June 23rd. The match between the formidable West Indies and India, which happens to be the final of the Prudential World cup. As an Indian I can’t forget that match. It is one of the greatest ODI’s played in the cricketing history

Next is the test match between the Australia and England where Australia needed nearly hundred runs to win and England needed only two wickets. At last England won by 2 runs. It was one of the fabulous test matches I have ever seen.

Third ids the ODI between India and Pakistan in Dhaka in 1999 where India won a thriller scoring 317 runs in 47 overs. It was a fabulous match which had all the essence of a great entertainment.

The match Between Australia and South Africa where Australia Scored 400+ runs first time in the ODI history and to amazement of everyone the South Africans chased those runs and won the match. It is considered as the best match in the ODI history.

The final is the test match which held in Perth in 2008 between Australia and India. All odds were against the Indians but still they won the match deservingly.

Reading Books

Many complaint of boredom during leisure time that’s because they do not know how to use their time in an useful way. Many of us do various kinds of work when we are free and mostly people do the same work in their free times and it is called habit. There are people who collect stamps, some do play games, and others watch TV, but one of the best ways to use our leisure time to read books. Reading books is considered as the best habit by many great scholars. In fact many great men have advised to take up the reading habit to spend our time. Reading books helps us to improve our knowledge, expands our wisdom on various fields, improves our behavior, enhances our language efficiency and the list goes on. So if you want to spend your time in the best possible way then take up the habit of reading and find the difference in you by yourself.

Environment is very important for the survival of human beings. But this environment is ignored by us for the sake of our own development. Human beings are not realizing that to survive in this earth they need to take care of the environment in the best possible way. Environment not only means rivers, mountains, forest, lakes, etc. It also means trees in the streets, maintaining a proper drainage system so that the water bodies and the underground water is protected from pollution, avoiding plastic bags, all small things like this will do a greater good to the environment. Awareness has to be created among the general public in order to save the environment.

Corrupt Indian System

India is becoming synonymous for the word corruption because of the many scams that is coming out daily in the news papers and in the electronic and visual media. Not only politicians who are accused for this crime but also many officials who hold high positions in government offices and who are meant to be the guardian of this Indian system assist these politicians to commit this crime and in the process they too get benefited in this. According to a survey taken by some experts Law department is the most corrupted in the country followed the police department. These two departments are meant to provide security and welfare for the public, but these two itself seems to be most corrupted. But the most disappointing fact is that many young youths who do pity crimes for getting a meal are beaten up like animals but there are people who do larger crimes than them and get away in the name of money and power.

Strict laws must be incorporated in the Indian system in order to provide corruption free society. Only then India can become a super power in the future.
