    Williamson is the captain of the year and Kohli is Kohli so only Babar seems dispensable

  5. I agree Aus win was special but not enough to overshadow the WC disappointment. Wc loss hurts because it was there for the taking. Obviously: high of the year- Aus win Low of the year: wc loss
  6. Also we need to determine under what rules these games would be played. Apart from tests where the rules have stood the test of time apart from a few minor upgrades, ODis will not be very easy to measure. take example of Dhoni- his biggest success came under the older rules where he could rotate the strike with fielders on the boundary in the middle overs, get his eye in and then smash it around but once the captains were forced to brining attacking fields in the middle overs he struggled to rotate strike. At the same time these new rules helped some other players as well. Effectiveness of the spinners due to the new ball rule and reverse swing for the most part have been made redundant. Mark Waugh has 18 Odi 100s,Lara has 19 where as Babar Azam has already 11 Odi 100s and Shai hope already has 8.
  7. India won the test series in England in early 80s but it was the wc win that changed the course of not just Indian cricket but world cricket. We won in England and WI in 2007 and for the first time in history won a test in SA but once again it was a WT20 that changed the face of cricket. Look I am not one of those sour puss who is going to water down the achievement of the Aus series win that it didn’t have their best batsmen because I know weaker Aus teams have dominated stronger teams at home. The high of the Aus series is directly equal to the low of the WC loss, you can’t use it as a measure to mask other failures.
  8. Are you sure it’s a white/christian guilt thing. I mean xmas and new year are lumped together as the holidays and not seen as a stand-alone holiday anymore Thanksgiving is still celebrated and the history of Thanksgiving is way more repulsive and gory than any other holiday in the world.
  9. It included brilliant innings such as the notout vs England in wc
  10. Both were the results of advice :)

    For someone reason Americans or westerners in general seem to hate rasgullas. Not speaking about the not so popular bot @Rasgulla Anyways for some reason the texture and the spongy nature weirds them out. Also another Indian item that we love and they seem to hate is the pan, the meetha pan not the more narcotic Baba Zarda Kashmiri type In fact pan was mentioned as one of the most disgusting things people eat in some radio show I heard once.

    Speaking of Bengali sweets used to love Sondesh. It used to be by fav sweet ever and this coming from me who has a sweet tooth and loves pretty much any sweet, chocolate, icecream there is. Now the keyword here is “used to” Few years back my dad had to travel to Kolkata for his office work so I told him to bring me back sondesh. since the return from his trip coincided with my birthday, he brought me this huge packet of what was apparently a very expensive brand of Sondesh (bongs here can help me out with the brandname or type ) which apparently stays fresh only for 2 days max. He asked me to distribute it to my friends but I was like screw that. Firstly it was expensive and secondly it is Sondesh all to myself. So I finished the first sondesh than 2 more, the fricking thing was so filling, skipped lunch then had 2 more for dinner and skipped dinner. By next day I was already sick of eating Sondesh So decided to finally distribute it to my friends but it might have already been spoiling or it could have just been my body stopped accepting any more Sondesh. Couldn’t risk giving spoilt food to people so stuffed in a couple of more Sondesh and then flushed the rest down the toilet and lied to my parents I finished the whole packet. Thats a true story that can go into a moral science text book for greed and gluttony

    @velu Is this true comrade?
  16. Talking about present generation. Also I don't really enjoy Prabhu Deva's dancing. He is a great dancer and choreographer no doubt. Something looks off. Too mechanical Ranbir Kapoor I would put him in the Varun Dhawan, Shahid Kapoor category in dancing. Govinda I agree, natural dancer, You really want to watch that guy dance. As far as Allu Arjun goes, well you are always a couple of clicks away from a google/youtube search to find out who anyone is these days unless you want to be intentionally snarky :) but for your benefit, He is the guy who for good or bad inspires most of the dhinchak copied songs and dance moves you find in big budget(but bad) Bollywood movies.
  17. Bahubali movies, if you look at them from a perspective of the Nextflix, amazon prime generation where we are exposed to so much content, lavish budgets, extraordinary VFX, complex storyline will seem very lame. Even I was very disappointed with the first part. However when you look at it from a perspective of why it worked so well with the masses and why it is an iconic Indian movie is the storyline borrowed from basic themes of our mythologies and culture. There was no unnecessary appeasement for the sake of it like Bollywood does, The sets and designs were lavish and VFX "for an Indian movie" was top notch, The hero looks like an actual hero rather than a 5 foot midget. neither did he look like one of those clean shaven, chocolate boys who are shoved down our throat as what conventional good looks is. He looked like a common man's hero keeping with the theme of the movie. Now coming to your original question, Telugu movie industry these days is all about making money. There is no art of storytelling anymore. Foot tapping numbers, punch dialogues, comedy (telugu movies in the past have some of the best comedy scenes) pretty much. In fact Telugu industry have set a template for big Bollywood stars in how to cash in and make a big buck. back in the day David Dhawan was a master of it. The guy never had a single original thought in his entire career. These days Akshay,Salman,Ajay Devgn and even Ranveer have all cashed in on this template. Not a good thing though. However at least these guys do some off-beat movies where as Telugu stars are bound by their own image.
  18. Not adding a caveat just for the sake of it but in villages or even in cities, the Muslims minding/running their own business are some of the nicest people you will meet as long as religion is not involved. Here is the problem though, these masses are super easy to bhadkao and start riots and chaos in the name of religion. Now the argument is that they need education and people need take steps to uplift their socio economic conditions, however the educated and the rich ones are a bigger problem. The partition and it's aftermath or even most problems in the world today stemming from Islam are fanned by the so called elite and educated.
  19. Watching Pak cricketers youtube channels especially after India's win or Pak loss
  20. From what I understand, Abrahamic way is like following scriptures to a tee, no scope for any adjustments or flexibility, a proper definition of heaven and hell and means to get there. No philosophical debates or flexibility to challenge and ask questions.
  21. My ancestors migrated from Maharashtra, old records have them with the Deshpande last name. In fact my sect itself is called 6000 neogis because there were believed to be only 6000 of us back in the day, adjusted to inflation may be 60000 today. if that is not minority not sure what else is Appeal to PM Modi and his highness Amit Shahji

  23. Good dancer but there are some who are natural and some who look too trained . For example: Shahid Kapur, Varun Dhawan Best natural dancers in India today Allu Arjun,Hrithik,Tiger Shroff Among heroines- Shraddha Kapoor
