Re: Indian domestic cricket/ players

I am so glad that Manoj clearly said that BJP's politics does not jive with his values. My parents now live in Howrah Shibpur and that is where home is now, although I grew up in Hugli. Our house was always in Shibpur where we would spend the three school holiday months as kids ... Go Manoj. Now, if...

Re: Heilbronn Challenger 100, Germany (Clay) - May 10-16

It may be fitness and mental. All these 6-1, 1-6 seems to suggest that he blows hot and cold. If you are that way, then it is difficult to string together wins consistently. And, you have to string together wins consistently if you want some big points that is available in the latter rounds of a cha...

Re: Sports and Performance Enhancing Drugs (Doping)

I do not recall any.

On another note, slightly old news, but I do not recall if anyone has posted this. Weightlifter Rakhi Halder, kabaddi player Ajay Thakur, racewalkers, etc. caught doping. :-(

Re: ATP Tennis/Non-India Davis Cup

This is the sort of thing Michael Madhusudhan Dutta faced when he went to England. I knew all that but hoped that the U.S. was different now than England at that time. My daughter is fluent in Bangla and has always been. She loves our food and music, culture, and some clothing. So all that cultural ...

Re: ATP Tennis/Non-India Davis Cup

Precisely. This and experiences like that my daughter had to face when someone told her that now she would be sent home after Trump won make us bristle at these terms that are used. My daughter was born in CA and has spent most of her life in PA. Interestingly, because of such racism, she has actual...

Re: ATP Tennis/Non-India Davis Cup

The one truly Canada born and bred tennis player was Montreal-born Eugenie Bouchard. Huh? I thought JIC said a bunch of the other players were born and brought up in Canada. If PKB was not brown, I would have called him a white/Anglo-Saxon supremacist. In these North American countries, everyone is...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

What is the government's accuracy with previous projections and the industry's in the past? What do these numbers look like in other places wrt how the production increases with time? [Not rhetorical questions and not trying to argue or blame anyone.] I think these questions are important to determi...

That is you and me (a Hindu who thinks he is atheist and thus not a Hindu, and a staunch believer that Hindu principles are equivalent to God being non-existent and thus all atheists are Hindus :) ) Jay, you and I talked about the definition of "God". Under your definition, I am a believer. Under t...

Re: Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 (COVID-19)

As we have feared, the religious nutcases have been the harbingers of death. Not definitive proof yet. But, the true extent of the carnage brought by these superspreaders will perhaps become clear after the dust has settled later on. Sad as it may be, I guess a people who prefer to go by archaic rel...
