Norway in June & December

UK being away from the equator faces quick changes in the seasons. Like there is a change in 2 minutes of sun light everyday. When the season changes from winter to summer there is a drastic shift of sun setting at 4PM to 10PM.

Now this was new for me and I wanted to see what is the difference between sunlight light time period in Norway. They call Norway "the land of mid night sun", but it can also be called "the land of noon darkness" (or something like that)

These are two videos of North of Norway.

In the month of June 2008, you can see that there is so less darkness. Hence the name "land of mid night sun"

And in the month of December 2008, we can see that the sunlight is out there for hardly 2 or 3 hours. Interesting isn't it?

I never felt this sudden "total sunlight time period" issue staying in India, but then that was India.

I also love the way the trees change from "no leaves in winter" to "new leaves in spring" to "green leaves in summer" to "red leaves in autumn" and back to no leaves in winter.

In India we generally have ever green trees & forests, pretty different here. :-)

Crouchy's Ballet & the Idiot Dancer

Every time Peter Crouch comes on the football field he has something hilarious to do. It may be his bad header or his after goal scoring robot acts or his bad foul or his geek look towards his team mate after missing an open goal.
Yesterday's game against Belarus showed us why he is a clown of great talents. He can "Ballet" & also to assit him he can ask people from Belarus to join in. Check these photos.

Crouchy and his pals from Belarus doing Ballet

Professionals doing Ballet. See the resemblance??

I just couldn't stop laughing after I saw the photo on Telegraph. It was hilarious and must be nominated for the "best dance action to score a goal of the century" category !!! :D

Lalit Modi is typical Gujju

His best friend is Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, not in real sense but just the Gandhi photo on the 1000 rupees note.

I can now live in peace!!!
See see even Gandhi's smiling & smiling "Yes he loves me & he will let me live for ever". Lalit Modi the IPL CEO and BCCI top notch executive will do anything for money and will even make the Indian Cricket players play on the moon if that pays him & BCCI.
The main moto of a sports governing body is promote sports in youngsters, help the sports people when in need (or injury), bring up new talent from the corners of the country & help build glory to the country.
Lalit Modi is now organizing a 20-20 champions tournament & "ONLY THE BEST" are playing in it.
Oh really?
  • Sir I have a question : What about the champions of World 20-20 cup, the country called Pakistan? They also won the ICL tournament, didn't they? The IPL -1 champion team had Kamran Akmal & Sohail Tanvir, why were they not allowed to play in IPL -2?
  • Modi is angered by this question and barks back: INDIAN GOVERNMENT DOESN'T WANT TO HAVE ANY TIES WITH PAKISTAN, SO NO TEAM CAN COME FROM PAKISTAN. ALSO RAJASTHAN DIDN'T QUALIFY FOR THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
  • Question 2: Sir Afridi is part of Deccan Chargers why isn't he playing?
  • Modi barks back louder : "YOU WANT INDIA TO WIN OR PAKISTAN TO WIN?"
Lalit Modi doesn't care about cricket, for him IPL is a profit making company and it should give him profit. He doesn't give a shit if any youngster comes from IPL to the Indian team or not. He just doesn't care !!! All he cares about is his 8 franchisers and how can I make more from them.

SRK "This guy to my right is an inspiration to the world & to all who don't care about anything & find out a way to make money"
Modi "please SRK you are embarrassing me, I am just a humble servant of BCCI"
I remember there was one young guy Manish Pandey who made a century in IPL -2 and since then hasn't done anything to come to the Indian team level.
IPL doesn't help domestic cricket, it is just spoiling the cricket scene in India. Half the players are injured when India plays an ICC tournament. India hasn't done great at the test level in the world until recently; now that our team has been doing well lets not kill the best 11 by forcing too much cricket on them.
Sehwag was injured for the ICC ODI Championship and now he is fit to play for Delhi Dare Devils. What if he get injured in Champions Trophy tournament and can't play against Australia?
Does Modi care about that? I am sure he doesn't. Infact even BCCI doesn't care, its now become a company & they want to make profit year on year. I don't know what great work are they doing after making so much money. The stadiums in India are bad and don't have good toilets or good seats. There are no good coaches at district level.
Modi stop being a typical Gujju and please give back to the people what you have got from them.
And I am totally against 20-20 cricket as a launch pad for cricketers to come to the national scene.
