Suman Tirumalasetti, RCB’s new headache and India’s next Tendulkar

Going by the way RCB played their innings, piling up 75 runs in the last five overs, no one would have expected Deccan Chargers to put an a valiant fight. But knowing that the pitch was a batting pitch one would have still expected good amount of fireworks. And Deccan Chargers did not disappoint in any way. Symonds and Suman put up a partnership which turned into unlimited entertainment for the crowd. It was a full paisa vasool for the day. While the K-Squared couple drove RCB's scores, the S-Squared couple finished RCB into oblivion.Source : Deccan chronicleWhat one has to keenly notice here is the fact that Suman is now the emerging threat to many other IPL teams leave alone RCB. And on another front, he is a potential no-nonsense batsman for India when they play other countries the next world cup. His knocks were no less than brilliant while DC were under immense scoring pressure requiring over 11 to 12 runs an over. From then on it was no looking back for Suman. His calmness a…

Silk Board to E-city highway to attract toll from today

Source: TOIFor those who enjoyed the toll highway from Electronics city to Silk Board in Bengaluru, constructed by NHAI, finally you must get ready to pay toll to use it henceforth. For those going to work, its still a boon and worthwhile investment. And for those investing in Hosur/Attibele/Jigani/Suryanagar, its even more worthwhile in terms of RE investment.As for me, I did get a chance to enjoy this road, but even as I drove for the first time, came across a horrific accident where a car’s frontage was completely in smoke after hitting the divider. Further on, I noticed only half of a two wheeler which made gory thoughts come to my mind wondering where the driver and the other half of the two wheeler were. If you want to bet on your life, please drive below 80 kmph and in one single lane always. If at all you want to change lanes, its advisable that you give proper indicators for doing the act.As for police patrol, its quite strong on the highway and they seem to come over immedia…

BBMP – Bruhat BJP Mahanagara Palike

Words don’t convey much. Pictures do. So here is the picture:(Source: TOI)Finally Bengaluru is waking up to understanding what it means to vote. And specifically to vote for a absolute majority. It does not matter who won these polls. One thing is certain that people have given a party an absolute majority. So that it can silence its critics and complete its proper functioning for the rest of the term. The BJP is on a roll as far as Karnataka is concerned. And here is why:Yeddy – Being a farmer, he can understand farmer’s sentiments. Being a CM he admits to his shortcomings and tries to constantly improve upon them. Being a senior administrator his focus is sharp – develop the city.Weak opposition – RV Deshpande commented in today’s newspaper that if Bengaluru’s elite had come in plenty to vote, then Congress would have won. Bullshit. If they had actually come in plenty and voted, Congress in fact would have lost miserably. Who does not know congress ? They are known to introduce tho…
