Re: What is God? - Religion/Philosophy

The path towards enlightenment starts with a thought. before we can answer the question 'what is god?' we need to be armed with the knowledge of who we are. To me a being is as intelligent as its design. it can think and innovate only as its design permits it to. for instance a dog or a pig is not d...

Re: US Open Tennis 2007 ..

im happy that the eyesore called venus williams has exited the open and somewhat rightfully was taken out by the player who proves time and again that size does not matter(although i absolutely despise henin's sportmanship). i always found the shriekers with their loud game very unappealing on court...

Re: The Indian Cricket League (ICL)

I think ICL is a wonderful idea, i mean we are already having sold out national championships like the ranji, duleeep and the deodhar tropies which enjoy a 99 % TV viewership. add to that the fierce rivalries like mumbai vs hyderabad, hyderabad vs mumbai etc and who wouldnt want to see inzamam bat f...

Re: 10 indian sports persons i dislike. what's yours?

Thanks, nballa.  Better, but I think what BSharma was suggesting was the term "least liked."  Which means you still like them, but the least! :D  Semantics? I think not.  least liked by who? im not speaking for the general population here but only for myself. please feel free to chip in with a list...

Re: 10 indian sports persons i hate. what's yours?

its against forum rules to have off topic discussions in threads.
i hope you guys stick with the topic.
the list is a personal preference and talent/skill/achievement has little impact on it. its the personality of the player and his off-field behaviour which helps him/her make the list.

Re: 10 indian sports persons i hate. what's yours?

acutally i have a great idea to completely eliminate linesmen from tennis. if you noticed in table tennis the ball is either on the table or out, there are no doubts there. now suppose we raise the playing area of tennis two inches above the surface, we remove the element of doubt. balls "on the lin...

Re: India in England, 2007

good win but we were helped by the fact that it was a 7 match series, helped us make multiple combacks. we play a 7 match series and a 5 match series back home against aus and pak. talk about greed. an odi series must not be more than 5 games and a test not more than 3. and the talk about sachin ret...
