Back to Monday Blues !!!

Hi folks... In few hours my mini vacation of 10 days will be siezed...

This vacation is gonna stay in mind for my cousin's marriage... the trip to cochin and most of all for my ties with you through zaXplanet... You keep on visting my blog, I hope to write on a regular basis... Bye 4 Now...

Arggg.. I've gotta be @ office again.. MONDAY BLUES !!!

IPL first of its kind Entertainment Capsule from BCCI (read it as Lalit Modi) has blocked large chunk of time in every cricket lover's calendar..

IPL has pioneered a new epic for spiced up version of cricket (T20), where cricket is married to entertainment - "CRICKETAINTMENT"... It cohered the ties between Cricket and Bollywood... It erased rivalry between nations... and modern day cricket is presented to the spectators at its best...

Overflowing Moolah, Glamorous Team owners, unmatched media coverage, Team anthems, albums, mascots, brand ambassadors... Nothing wrong if one thinks that IPL is larger than the game itself...

Everything started with McCullum's firework and Hussey's elegance... other highlights being Gambhir's and MSD's consistence... rise of a new international superstar - Shaun Marsh and numerous local Stars like Badrinath, Dhawan, Yusuf, Asnodkar, Abishekh Nayar, YOMI and many more.. Old war horses Pidgee, Sanath and Warnie didn't disappoint us (Our very own Little Master is yet to put up a remarkable performance though)... and not to forget fiery return of Rawalpindi Express... it was indeed a treat to our eyes...

Wait... IPL Epic was not just the battle of leather and willow... There is more action and drama to it... It was a shock to see tears pouring out of India's most "Aggressive" bowler Sreesanth, and then there comes team politics -- Mallya Vs RCB and then the latest verbal dual - Gilli Vs Viru... All these pretty much indicates that IPL is the best reality show in Indian Television and it justifies the shooting TRP of this "CRICKETAINTMENT"...

Now coming back to the game... It has lived up to prenomination of Cricket being unpredictable... The strongest batting line-up on the paper, a team comprising of Gilli, Symo, Afridi, Gibbs, and Rohit Sharma is at the bottom of the table and a team sans superstars is heading the table... Look at the current standings...

"Twist-in-the-tale"

There is a kiwi fruit based juice at FSGR (Fruit Shop) in that name.. But that’s not what I am referring to...


I am talking about the latest episode in SRK Vs AK showdown... I love the entertainer in SRK and intellect in AK... I was very happy when they both publicly acknowledged each other’s competency and thus announced a seize fire… Now that’s not bollywood


And the twist in the tale… AK's Blog "Settlers Of Panchgani" posted on May,13,2008 came as a shock for me (it sure is a journalist’s delight)... as a SRK fan I am offended and my respect to AK has land slided... Though it’s been a long running sportive rivalry, SRK has always tried to delicately play down the so-called rift with AK, where in otherwise "WISE" AK pounces on every small to kick start a verbal dual... This time it got real NASTY...

AK's Blog is arguably the most viewed blog in India and he is an inspiration of millions of bloggers. Given the very fact, he shouldn’t have used his blog to launch an attack on his equally famous Rival... Someone please whisper blog ethics to this charming fella (Kiran... U listening???)...

What is in a name???

Hi all... Finally after 8909 days of existence in anonymity, I am penning my first blog and setting my first step in enticing blogosphere..

All this while i have been wondering "how people blog and what would i write if i decide to blog.. as a matter of fact I am still wondering (",)"... Since I have decided to come out of my anonymity, why not start off with my identity..

Shammu, Shamz, Zack, Shamraz, Shamreez, Samraas and Mohammed... I normally turn my head towards the source of voice, whenever one of the above alias is called, though my certificate says that I am Mohammed Shamrez Zack... and i hail from the god's own country (Kerala)... I have to accept that my parents deserved a much disciplined first kid, yes I was as naughty as one can be (many will say that i still am).. I dont intend to bore you more with I, Me and Myself as I want you to come back to my page for my future blogs :)

PS:- those who are ready to bear more of this boredome can write to me - shamz911@gmail.com
