Re: Rohan Belday thread

A 6-2,6-2 match going for 2 hours got to be something. At this age in boys, the physical aspect between 14 and 17 is huge. I am glad Rohan started this young so he can gain a lot of experience. Can't wait to see him reach greater heights!

Re: Indian Origin Players Thread

Congratulation, Rohan! This is so exciting! If I remember right, Gautam announced Rohan's birth on this forum not too long ago, right? :D All the very best to Rohan and wishing him to continue scaling new heights.

Seriously??? Monfils is too maverick for standing there "uncovered" :D

Re: US Open 2020

I watched the match in bits and pieces. Sumit played well to dominate his patchy opponent. It's a big deal for Indian Tennis to see a player make it R2 at a grandslam after so many years. Saki probably was the only one who was close enough to R2. C,mon. Nobody in the forum to celebrate our singled g...

Re: World Chess Olympiad/ World Team Chess

:Offtopic: Good to see you back in the forum, Kumar. It's been a very long time. I hope you are doing well. I logged back in today after a 4+ month hiatus, by far my longest time away from the forum in almost 20 years :)

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

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...
