In this blog, I intend to write my thoughts on things happening around me, the news I see in the TV, something I read or anything that captures my attention. I will try to avoid the effect of everyday ups and downs of my personal life on the contents of the blog.

Cricket world cup - my prediction

DISCLAIMER: I am neither a regular watcher of the game nor a great fan. This is somenthing that I can't miss. This is a country where this game is more of a religion which unites people from many other religions.

I don't think India is poised to lift the cup. This is in a way disappointing to me that a legend like Sachin will be retiring without ever feeling the cup in his hand (I don't think Sachin will be able to survive next 4 years to make it to the next world cup). India owed him the cup for what he has achieved.

Australia (extra-terrestrial team) and England are teams I see who can make it interesting and may go for the finals. Looking at the rest, Sri Lanka or India from the sub-continent could make it upto the semis. West Indies is something that could spring some surprise. In group D, I would bet more on Zimbabwe than on Pakistan. Its purely due to the state the Pakistan team is now.

Global warming - melting arctics

This topic has become the buzz for a decade, something we claim that our techology has enabled us to realize. With billions dollars worth of research happening all over the world, the findings and reports are still speculative. Melting glaciers are being highlighed but not the ones thar forming newly and the ones which are growing.

The general research findings say something like a .5 - 2 degree increase in temperature in the next 100 years, which is not again confirmed.

I personally don't worry about these, when it comes to weather and climatic changes its vry well known that man has got miles to go before he can confirm any of his theories. Even daily weather forecast generally goes wrong leave alone a 100 or 1000 year predictions.

Assuming this to be true, I see the change as a part of earth's evolution. How did dinosour die, weather change, if that had not happened I dont think I will be sitting in this air-conditioned room and blogging about global warming.

Maybe nature has something exciting for mother earth post-human occupation.
