Talking about Commonwealth Games, they are becoming quite a circus. The rains have screwed up the preparations, there is a money trail to UK and the Organizing Committee and its chairman is claiming everything is world class on time, and fair. If that was not all, you have people like Mani Shankar Aiyar making a statement like "I am delighted in a way because rains are causing difficulties for the Commonwealth Games. Basically, I will be very unhappy, if the Games are successful"
You think Rajnikant splitting a bullet in two using a blade or running faster than a bullet to stop it before it reaches its victim is extreme? Then I must tell you this trend of unbelievable stuff is not started by Ranji. I remember watching a movie where a woman was photographed while she was being murdered. Unfortunately the murderer had his back towards the camera but I guess this problem is way to small for the law to lay its long hands on the criminal (kanoon ke haath bahut lambe hote hain) and the murderer was finally identified by zooming into the eyes of the victim. Her eyes had a reflection on the murderer. Beat that Rajni.
A friend of mine who is not very fond of Kingfisher Beer made an interesting observation. He said that it is like Maruti 800. Back in the 1980s when Maruti was launched in India there were only two cars available in India - Ambassador and Premier Padmini. Both the cars were unchanged, externally as well as internally, since their launch. Since then so many cars have been launched a lot of them much better than Maruti 800 but if you say the word car, the image that comes to the mind of most Indians is a Maruti 800. Similarly at a time when only smaller, local breweries existed Kingfisher was launched and since then so many beers, a lot of them much better than Kingfisher has been launched but Kingfisher enjoys the same recall among beers as the Maruti 800 in cars.
