29 th January 2008

  • Big news of the day...racism charge against Harbhajan Singh dropped.The Australian cricket tour will continue.The BCCI had apparently decided too call off the rest of the tour if Harbhajan Singh is judged guilty. GOSH.Times of india.com says ' Harbhajan not a racist......................whew !!! Interestingly, conjecture is whether it was monkey or Maa ki !!!!!
  • Roger Federer loses to Novak Djokovic in Australian Open .Read an article http://www.journalofastrology.com/ which predicts the beginning of the end of the Federer era. I do not track Tennis so keenly now but I still remember my school days when Bjorn Borg,John Mcnroe,Jimmy Connors,Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert were playing and How I would stay glued to The TV set to watch them play
  • BBC predicts a zero degree cold for Delhi on Friday 01 of feb .Wait ,watch and shiver.
  • The RBI has not changed any of the key policy rates in its Credit Policy review . All the rates including the Reverse Repo remain the same. The cash reserve ratio (CRR) has also been left untouched by the RBI.Causes much disappointment in business circles as a cut in repo rate was being looked forward to.
  • Kenya continues to burn .From the BBC

"They say that while the dispute over the elections is clearly political - with the opposition and some independent observers accusing the government of having rigged the polls - the root cause of some of the violence is hunger for fertile land."

  • I always wonder whether " being considered" can be taken as news ? Good times for Pakistani fans of Indian films,bad times for illegal copy makers . Pakistan is considering a proposal to lift the ban on Indian films.
