Mankutimmana Kagga

The gist --- The world has forgotten so many of its great people and we are sure to be forgotten. So it makes no sense to run behind fame.

This is an extract from a collection of “kaggas” called “Mankutimmana Kagga”. These kaggas answer the ultimate questions of life and speaks the actual truth. This “Mankutimmana Kagga” is written by D.V.Gundappa, a true scholar.

Chase Excellence, Success Will Follow - Sachin Tendulkar

Chase Excellence, Success Will Follow. I kind of agree with this saying. The best living example for this is probably Sachin Tendulkar. “I don’t play for records. I play for enjoyment and passion. I never came to cricket to make records. It just happened.” Is what the legend told.

No language can boast of words that could describe the little master Sachin Tendulkar. This master blaster holds the record of highest number of centuries in both Test and ODI cricket. Sachin Tendulkar is the most prolific run scorer in one day internationals and Test cricket. I keep wondering what next? I don’t think that there is anything else left for this little master to achieve. If cricket is religion, Sachin is God.

Tendulkar has been granted the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, Arjuna Award, Padma Shri and Padma Vibhushan by the Government of India. What next? Bharata Rathna. I don’t think the Government of India has a choice.

"Closest thing to batting perfection" - Sunil Gavaskar

"I'll be going to bed having nightmares of Sachin just running down the wicket and belting me back over the head for six. He was unstoppable” - Shane Warne

"You know genius when you see it. And let me tell you, Sachin is pure genius." - West Indian batting great Brian Lara.

Who else can be better judges?

Gopalaswamy Betta!!!!

A cold and misty place. Three hour drive from Bangalore called Gopalaswamy Betta. The place is named after a temple of Lord Krishna. This place lies in the core area of the Bandipur National Park. Mist and cloud will be with us most of the time. Elephants are Habitual visitors. Rainy and winter seasons are the best times to visit. The plants get moisturized with a fine spray of water. A night’s stay here in brume is sure to cause a thrilling romance with nature.

The mist and cloud will turn to rain, the rain to mist and cloud again. I loved it....

Man VS Woman

Happy couples are not polite to each other. They are real. They may argue, fight or disagree. They are not always kissing and hugging. Polite is, I wont say there is something wrong with us because i have given up.
You may say or do things that may upset your partner and if the relationship is real the connection will always be there alive and unique. The partner will always feel the warmth.

Writing about this reminded me of a must watch video for people who are married or in a relationship. I loved the concept of "Nothing Box".
