Sport

For me there is nothing that comes close to a good game of football, well of course a game of basketball is equally awesome; I guess sport is one of the few things that makes life fun and worth living. Anybody who knows me knows how much I love sport, the physical activity and the tiredness involved is simply amazing.

And I forgot the sweating :D, I generally sweat a lot and while playing I sweat buckets (Think of Rahul Dravid and multiply it by 10). The combination of the outdoor atmosphere, the stretched out muscles, all the running, the creative passes, the manly shoulder barges, the honesty, the integrity, the stamina, the sweating and the swearing is just simply awesome. And it is the best way (the cheapest, the healthiest and the awesomest way) to cheer up and have fun with your friends.

The part where you’re all tired and have finished playing, the first sip of water that you take makes you feel like you’re in heaven. And when you go home and lie down in your bed with absolutely no gas and you’re left with sore muscles, the tiredness takes you over and puts you to sleep, Amazing!

I believe that one can really see the true character of a person when he’s playing because it’s just so instictive and one has no time to think about his actions. The cheaters, the true geniuses, fair and honest players; sport brings out the true self in everyone. And it is definitely a form of Art. I’m sure you get the same feeling when you see some painting by say Picasso or when you witness a moment of sporting brilliance, a slam dunk by King James or perfectly weighed thru ball that makes you go wtf!!!

Collective sports I guess is better than theindividual ones because you know, the beauty of a number of people working towards one single goal in their own individual way where the self doesn’t matter, it’s the team that counts and I’m sure everyone would agree that the 24 pass goal by Argentina in the last word cup is much harder and much more beautiful than any act of individual genius.

I guess I can proudly say that the playground is like a second home for me. Here’s to Soma (My home ground :D). Host to so many amazing games of both football and basketball, so many friends that I’ve made there, so many memories and of course so many injuries (Ouch!). I just wish I would be able to play my entire life.

And I just can’t wait for the Olympics, It’s gonna be fucking brilliant!!!

Apollo 11

July 20th 1969, a historic day on which humans first walked on the moon and today I can’t help but appreciate the scale of this achievement. Just go out tonight and see the near full moon glittering in all its glory and to think that we have the power to visit this alien world is simply amazing. Just think of the amount of science involved in a moon landing.

There’s nothing that’s more beautiful than the moon (as you can see in the picture at the top) and I’m sure each and everyone of us has looked up and gazed at the moon with awe and wonder. To think that 39 years ago we were able to go there and come back alive with the technology that was available then is really awesome.

Just see this video.. Amazing..

And check out this NASA web page for more videos.

And one of the best pictures of all time 🙂

GETHU

How wonderful it would have been to walk on the moon.. Everytime I look up at the moon I wish I could visit it. So white, so beautiful, so breathtaking in a clear starry night amidst the blackness of space.

As Buzz Aldrin said one cannot really put it in words the feeling you get but I guess he summed it up beautifully when he said “Magnificent desolation”.

Amazing Gethu..

Quantum Mechanics…

Just saw this video while digging around the web and it is simply amazing. Check it out, it’s about the double slit experiment.

Science Rocks 🙂

Thalaivaa!

I met actor Vivek at Dubai Airport… Thalaivaa… 🙂

Thala

Thalaivaa!

It actually took me a few mins to realise it was him because as you can see he looks so different! I just could have never imagined him without his moustache and the kinda glasses he was wearing and his voice and stuff were so different. And when I finally realised it was Thala sitting a few chairs to my left, I just couldn’t help reaching for my camera.

You can never guess how different the actors really are off the screens. Amazing differences. Thala isn’t even smiling for my photo and looked a semma serious guy.

Anyway, I think he’s the only actor liked by everyone I know.

Absolute Legend…
