He has won a couple of World Championships since the time he asked his question. Don't worry, he is completely fine now :p

Re: AITA News .....

Shatrughan Sinha is a lifetime Vice-President? I have never heard him ever talk about Tennis. How did we tolerate these guys for so long? :mad:

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

I am not sure if AP and Telengana are tracing and testing enough... I can't vouch for the entire AP, but according my friends, my hometown (Eluru in West Godavari district) is doing a phenomenal job. When AP numbers spiked up overnight, Eluru went from 0 to 15 cases (all Tablighi returnees) setting...

Re: Working from home during Covid-19

We were in a conference call with about 30 people (almost 2/3rd of the attendees are dialing in from India). It was about 10 AM IST, a girl from India was doing a presentation and every so often a Bollywood song would play annoyingly loud in the background for a few seconds. After a couple of minute...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Appreciate the concern guys. I have been feeling better the last couple of days (still have occasional very mild fever and headache but feeling fine most of the day). Hopefully this continues to be the case. Glad to see that India has ramped up testing to 10k/day. This will lead to increase in numb...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

I don't watch much of Indian news channels, but a lot of FB posts and WhatsApp messages are spewing venom on Islam because of the spread happened from the congregation. This is quite disturbing. I hope the PM and state CMs are spreading message to the public not to do so. A busy day in Tirupati woul...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

Just don't give a f**k about people who want to die themselves, doc. We need you for the ones who want to live" should be our attitude. I don't give two hoots about the one guy who is sick but doesn't want to be helped. It's about the 100 guys "protecting" him (from god knows whom!) and hugging and...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

These miscreants should be booked for causing harm to the society. They need to be put behind the bars to send a loud and clear message to all. So many poor people have suffered because of the lock-down, many others (health workers, law and order, administrators) are risking their lives to contain t...

Re: Australian Open 2018

It's about time Saki took a call on his career. I remember him mentioning in one of the interviews not too long ago that his interest in doubles is only secondary. Given his long history of injuries, he is better off focusing on doubles. If he does that, I am pretty sure he can easily be top-50 or b...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

I agree, Suresh. Parts of my post was not well phrased which made it sound like I am supporting the brutality of police in all cases. Some of them clearly seem to show their attitude that they can.

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

There are numerous WhatsApp videos floating around, not only of their beating people up but also offering counselling and educating people. In one instance, a ...
