The second test might appear to be over. But I don’t think this is going to be the case. I think the remaining SL batsman will at least put up a fight. With Dilshan, Vaas and Mubarak remaining, I think SL will not fold up that easily. Besides, India is notorious for letting tail-enders play fighting knocks. Should be an interesting days play nevertheless.
As for the Indian team, it has been “team work” all the way thus far with everyone sharing the burden of batting and bowling.
India’s IT capital is set to under a name change. I wonder why this is being done incrementally. The Indian Govt. must get one giant list of cities, streets etc together and change them all once and for all! It doesn’t make sense to do this incrementally!
India should open with Yuvraj. Facing Murali in his present form is going to be Yuvraj’s worst nightmare given that he is so suspect against spin bowling. It makes sense for India to open with Yuvraj. With a few runs under his belt against the opening bowlers and a little bit of luck he might just do better against Murali! The other option is to open with Dada! 🙂
Nasdaq is at 2,252.01. Highest in the last 4 years. The boom days are back or what? Its about time the Tech sector returned to better times!
What are they hoping to accomplish by starting the Test on the fourth day? They should just abandon and re-schedule if possible!

Man, these guys have fought there way back. I had thought that maps from Google where too cool and that I would never bother with Yahoo maps again. But these guys have done a phenomenal job with their new maps.
1. You can save addresses/routes so you can recall them when needed.
2. Live traffic updates are included.
3. You can look for anything (say “Indian restaurants”) around an address and “boom” its marked out on the map!
4. The maps have an inset showing the larger view that remains always on the screen.
All this and possibly more in addition to showing all of what Google has (barring the satellite pictures!) is quite an accomplishment in such a short time.
Have you checked out Yahoo voice chat? Its great! Very often works better than Skype. Has cool vmail capability too!
No question, Yahoo is coming back strongly against the competition.
Title: Chandupottu (means “bindi” in Malayalam)
Type: Family Drama
Language : Malayalam
Starring: Dileep, Gopika.
This is a story of a fisherman’s family. The grandma in the family is longing for a female grandchild to be born because all the grandchildren are males! Unfortunately, she ends up with another grandson. Frustrated, she ends up bringing him (named Radhakrishnan) up like a girl — long hair, painted nails, make-up, bindi etc. Despite being a boy, he talks like a girl, walks like a girl and hangs out with the girls. However, he falls for one of the girls. There is some historic family rivalry courtesy of which a villain (a fine performance from Inderjit, son of the late mallu movie star Sukumaran), is introduced. As expected after some twists and turns the lead pair comes together (as if you didn’t guess!). This is a family story with plenty of masala, but some of it like the basic theme of the film is pretty creative, though not necessarily remotely realistic. There is some truly enjoyable hilarious comedy as a part of the main story itself as opposed to the deliberately inserted plug and play comedy that you see in most films.
Hats off to Dileep for a fantastic performance as Radhakrishnan. Gopika does justice to her role as the heroine. The movie is running to packed houses despite having crossed the 100-day mark. After a long time, I saw the movie in a jam-packed theatre in India! Overall, a very enjoyable film.
I am pretty certain that remakes of the film in other languages will soon start to appear. But the hero’s role is a very challenging one and not may heros might be willing to take this on.
