Djo Kovic Jeetha Wo Sikkander

Novak Djokovic wins the French Open after being two sets down in the final. This is his 19th Grand Slam.

Cyclone Brewing in the BUREVI of Bengal

...... A couple of things have made it easier for us to 'look forward' to Burevi.(If the term looking forward to may indeed be used for a situation as this. Ni Varu Vaaya?) One is that its elder sibling, Cyclone Nivar faded away without showing much ferocity. It gives much hope to the otherwise hapless common folk, very vulnerable to nature's fury.....

Andhra Pradesh – Jagan’s eState & Three Capitals

Forget the Turkish Tughlaq. Our Telegu Tsar one can do much better. Why bother with just transferring capitals? Seems a little old-fashioned. Our Reddy must have read his Alexander and the unravelling/ cutting of the Gordion Knot. The new Andhra CM is looking at three state capitals, one each for the Legislative, Executive and the Judiciary.

Huawei, Hua Bye? The Rose hiding the thorns, finally plucked?

.................................Huawei's attractive (decent technology) and accessible (economically priced) offerings made them captivating roses. The Bard may as well question, why raise a red flag on the country of origin, when it is not about the colour of the flag but the cologne in the fragrance. It was this same logic that would have made British PM Boris ........... Johnson continue with Huawei as a partner in UK's telecom plans. But luckily enough, he has seen the thorns that the rose had been hiding for long. ........................

Beijing Decency – Border Disputes by Peking One’s Nose into Neighbours’ Areas

.........................One is reminded of the story of Pinocchio. A wooden toy created by its carpenter father finds its nose growing each time its utters a lie. Drawing parallels, maybe the CCP led China finds itself Pinocchio-ed. It pokes its nose, lies and usurps land of one neighbour. Soon the lengthening nose leads it to other neighbours and their lands and seas. But the Pinocchio syndrome means it is now led by the nose of its own making into uncharted waters. The sooner the nose gets normal, the better for China and the world. Getting one's nose cut to size is no laughing matter. Xi Jinping with pain, no pleasant sight either.

Enter or Exit, but surely don’t Enter(tain) the remorseless dragon

Do you agree that Twitter 'questioning' Amul's content, however temporarily, was unwarranted? ? Amul was talking of exiting the dragon in a reference to the calls for boycott of Chinese goods.

Cyclone Nisarga: 2 sets of meanings. One Grant, Another Release

Cyclone Nisarga caused at least one sleepless night for Mumbai. The Media created awe and fear as none else can. The way it projected Cyclone Nisarga, caused sufficient concern. We cannot blame the media too

Manster – this animal needs to evolve! Pregnant Elephant killed with crackers inside...

The anagram of Animals is Man Ails. What has happened in Kerala is another manifestation of this ailment.

Corona Virus Infection Curve – A tale of 2 ‘L’s

The decision to open up sales of Liquor has come under heavy criticism. The Honourable High Court of Madras has also annulled the decision of the TN Government.

Math-e-Militant? Tuterror-ist? Maybe. Yet, only a Pawn to the State Preying on Lives.

.....The Naikoos of the world may be good at mathematics. But they let themselves be indoctrinated by players in whose Game Theory, the only practice the Riyazs of the world can get is of being cannon fodder. This is almost a zero sum game ............
