Soccer vs Football

All things done and said, Brazil’s defeat against Germany attracted too many unsolicited reactions.
Suddenly many so called Brazil fans also switched loyalty to Germany. For them now Germany is a better ‘team’ and they should win the world cup. Also I must say that some of the funny quotes /pictures doing rounds in the Internet are really hilarious.
But you can not discard decades of entertainment and excitement Brazilian football stars have provided just based on their one bad day at play!. Probably stars were not in their favor on that fateful day.(with few stars even missing!- Neymar, Silva)
Brazil caught the imagination of the world , which also includes fish loving bespectacled race simply by virtue of their magical touch with the ball. They taught how to romance with the ball (no pun intended).
All the slicing and dicing of match statistics would tell you that Germany were far better team in the match. Game plan, strategy, mental strength, physical strength , co-orndination, ball possession  blah blah ..Germany gets thumbs up for everything. Probably this is the reason why Germany has been so consistent over the years.
But is not sports about those few moments when sportsperson transcends human boundaries and creates magic with his/her creativilty?..display skills which we thought was never possible?.. Brazilians player have been doing that for all these years to keep the game ‘beautiful’. Let not one effing match take that from them.


Disclaimer: I am not a avid football fan. Just a passing though. As a matter of fact I don’t like any sports that involve too much of physical contact :-/

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
