Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Typo. Autocorrect. Yes the great man passed away yesterday due to covid related complications. Just hope this doesn't have an escalating effect on Calcutta. From what I saw on TV thousands were out in the streets yesterday to pay him last respects.

Re: P. V. Sindhu thread - Rio Olympics Silver medal winner

Is Sindhu retiring? There are different versions of this article floating around on various websites.

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Ramdas Athawale of "Go Corona, Corona Go" fame is now down with covid. This after 2 other prominent Maharashtra politicians Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar also got affected. While cases are reducing now it seems the politicians in Maharashtra are getting affected.

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Few weeks ago you had shared that famous knife throwing scene clip from the movie Joy Baba Felunath on this forum. As far as Soumitra is concerned undoubtably his greatest performance was in the movie Charulata that is regarded as Satyajit Ray's finest. Kishore Kumar sung the song of his life in tha...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

The original Feluda is dying of covid at a Kolkata Nursing Home. What an irony. Soumitra Chatterjee one of India's greatest actors ever is fighting covid and is in bad shape.

Re: 2020 French Open (postponed to 20Sept-4Oct)

Nadal at Roland Garros is like Bali in Ramayan. Just looking at him reduces the opponent's strength by half. Yesterday the vegan guy was looking like a joker in front of him. I was confused whether it was a final or a 1st round match. :p

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Monsoon is over. It is reflecting on the numbers. This coupled to the fact that a lot of people would have got exposed to the virus and developed antibodies. Next risks are the festival season with crowding, the North East Monsoon and the opening up of restaurants, cinemas and trains.

Re: European Challengers 2020

Next great hope is Izhan Mirza Malik. Only thing is we have to wait 20 years. :p
Jokes apart that is the pathetic state of Indian singles today. :damn:
Only hope is if Ankita Raina can break into the top 100 among women.
I think even in doubles the cupboard is bare. Who after Rohan and Divij?

Re: European Challengers 2020

Both Yuki and Prajnesh have a career high in the top 100. How many Indians have achieved that in the past 30 years?
Since Ramesh, only 4. Out of them one is a legend, probably the only singles player who has a positive record against both Sampras and Federer and never lost to them. :p

Corporation people didn't even visit. Even the society was not sealed off. They have just given up.

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Whenever you are depressed about Corona watch Ramdas Athawale's famous "Go Corona Corona go" video and you will feel refreshed. At least somebody is serious (pun intended) about Corona going.

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

I don't think Maharashtra test numbers are correctly reported. Many private labs are doing antigen tests in big numbers and making good money. What may be happening is only the positive antigen tests are uploaded on the ICMR site. I myself got an antigen test done. That day there were 98 tests in my...
