On a vacation!!

It is already 4 days old now... it started off on last Saturday.. time flies.. already did a short trip to Pondy and Tiruvanamalai.. more to follow on the next post.   Plans are there to go to Goa next week.  We have to see who reaches Goa first, either us or the monsoon.. Either ways I guess it would be nice.. Goa in rains should be fantastic.. 

Didn't watch the IPL final due to my Pondy/TVMalai visit.. just managed to catch glimpses of Bangalore Royal Challengers batting.. when I saw they were cruising along nicely and thought BRC would win.. but our guys have great talent to lose from winning position.. but it was really a great show by Kumble & Co after the Pietersen show ended.  What a waste of space Kevin Pietersen turned out to be?  Next time when KP returns he should be asked to play under Anil Kumble and should not be handed back the captaincy.  If it happens, it would be a great injustice to Kumble.  Hope Vijay Mallya listens to it.. 

One thing which I am constantly hearing is the possibility of the entire IPL 2 has been fixed... how come do you explain DC and BRC fighting for the trophy.  The pre-tournament favourites RR and CSK and the other top contender DD where no where in picture.. Monday's Dinamalar carried a huge article on the amount of betting went on for the final alone.. can you imagine the figure, it is Rs10000 crores.  So with this kind of money and the fact that it has been organised in a country which has a history of match fixing, the doubts gets amplified many times.. we have to wait and watch for few more years before the good luck of the invicible "IPL man"wears off and like many others he is brought before justice!!

Hi Anand,

Good to know that your parents are visiting Ireland. Convey my regards to them.

Cost of the tickets depends on the season u book and how early you book. It could vary between 25000 Rs to 50000 Rs.

If you are coming down, dont worry about accomodation. I wld take care of it.

Hi Anand,
Thanks for the offer. I will try, may be, next year. I think by proper planning and coordination we can combine UK and Ireland in one trip, right?
Am definitely interested but has to wait for some more time..
thanks
