Boyfriend - Girlfriend

A girlfriend.. .

is a female partner in a non-marital romantic relationship, or a female friend.
The term is most commonly used
to describe any female person who is in a romantic relationship with another person.
An older woman in such a non-marital relationship
is sometimes described instead as a significant other or partner, especially if the two partners are living together.

At times, since “girlfriend” and “partner” mean different things to different people, the distinctions between the terms are subjective, and which term is used in a relationship will ultimately be determined by personal preference.
When used by a girl or woman about another female
in a non-sexual, non-romantic context, the 2-word form “girl friend” is usually used to avoid confusion with the romantic meaning. Though nuanced, there is a significant difference between girlfriend and boyfriend, & girl friend and boy friend. In a strictly grammatical sense, a girlfriend or boyfriend is an ‘individual of significance’ with whom one shares a relationship.

A girl friend or boy friend, however, is simply a friend identified on the basis of gender.Depending on the current informal speech styles in a given time and place, terms such as “[old] lady”, “girl”, “bird”, “wifey”,”honey”, “missus”, and “chick” may be used in the same sense as “girlfriend”, however it should be noted that these terms can be considered as sexist.

It is advisable to not use these terms in formal language. Frequently, these are preceded by a possessive pronoun or otherwise contextually marked for clarification, as such terms are more generic ways of referring to females and alone do not indicate a relationship of any sort.

A female engaged in
an extramarital relationship with a married person is frequently considered a “mistress”. Some terms of endearment directed to females, a romantic relationship is not required, are “darling”, “sweetheart”, “lover”, etc.

Users of Internet slang often shorten girlfriend to the acronym gf or the contraction girlf.

A boyfriend…
The term is most commonly used to describe any male person,
who is in a romantic relationship with another person. Partners in such non-marital relationships are also sometimes described as a significant other or simply partner, especially if the individuals are cohabitating.

The differences between all these terms are subjective and their usage is ultimately determined by personal preference.The term is now being extended in sense as found for its female equivalent, girlfriend, a term sometimes used by women referring to their non-romantic female friends, i.e. referring to a man’s non-romantic male friends.

This extended sense is only common in the USA; in the UK & India it is unknown and in Australia it is widely understood but considered old-fashioned. Similarly the term guyfriend is sometimes used by females to refer to non-romantic male friends. Though nuanced, there is a significant difference between girlfriend and boyfriend, & girl friend and boy friend.

In a strictly grammatical sense, a girlfriend or boyfriend is an ‘individual of significance’ with whom one shares a relationship. A girl friend or boy friend, however, is simply a friend identified on the basis of gender.The word itself is relatively new — its first usage in print known to the Oxford English Dictionary is in George W. E. Russell’s Collections and recollections, by one who has kept a diary, in 1909.

In the past it had implications of an illicit relationship (as sexual and romantic relationships outside marriage were generally frowned upon). It is now a generally accepted term, however, no longer having negative connotations. An earlier usage in print, dating from July 1889, is discussed in Neil Bartlett,

Who Was That Man?

A Present for Mr Oscar Wilde. On pages 108-110, Bartlett quotes from an issue of The Artist and Journal of Home Culture, which refers to Alectryon as “a boyfriend of Mars.”beau, guy, flame, follower, fiance, inamorato, Romeo, swain, boo, shorty, baby

Certain terms suggest an older man, e.g. daddy, gentleman caller, gentleman friend, main man, man, old man, sugar daddy, while the contrary is true of young man (and the gender-neutral baby) Additionally, gender-indiscrimina te terms also apply, e.g. lover, heartthrob, paramour, squeeze, sweetheart, true love and some more specific terms such as cavalier, wooer, and gender-neutral ones like date, escort, steady or suitor; furthermore, non-gender specific euphemisms such as admirer, companion,leman or lemman, an archaic word for ”sweetheart, paramour,” from Medieval English leofman (c.1205), from Old English leof (cognate of Dutch lief, German lieb) ”dear” + man “human being, person” was originally applied to either gender, but remarkably usually meant mistress

Users of Internet slang often shorten boyfriend to the acronym bf or the contraction boyf.

Daughter’s letter to Dad…! - funny

Father passing by his teenage daughter’s bedroom
was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was neat
& tidy. Then he saw an envelope propped up on the center of
the pillow. It was addressed “Dad”.

With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter:

Dear Dad,

It is with great regret & sorrow that I’m writing you, but I’m leaving home.I had to elope with my new boyfriend Randy because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom & you. I’ve been finding real passion with Randy & he is so nice to me. I know when you meet him you’ll like him too -even with all his piercing, tattoos, & motorcycle clothes. But it’s not only the passion Dad, I’m pregnant & Randy said that he wants me to have the kid & that we’ll be very happy together. Even though Randy is much older than me
(anyway,40 isn't so old these days is it?),& has no money, really these things shouldn’t stand in the way of our relationship, don’t you agree?

Randy has a great CD collection; he already owns a trailer in the woods & has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. It’s true he has other girlfriends as well but I know he’ll be faithful to me in his own way. Randy taught me that marijuana doesn’t really hurt anyone and he’ll be growing it for us and we’ll trade it with our friends for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we’ll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Randy can get better; he sure deserves it!! Don’t worry Dad, I’m 15 years old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I’m sure we’ll be back to visit so you can get to know your grandchildren.

Your loving daughter,

At the bottom of the page were the letters ‘PTO’

Hands trembling, her father turned the sheet, and read:

PS: Dad, none of the above is true. I’m over at the
neighbor house.I just wanted to remind you that there are worse
things in life than my report card that’s in my desk center drawer.
Please sign it and call when it is safe for me
to come home. I love you !!

Impossible wish - funny

A man was walking along a California beach when he stumbled across an old lamp. He picked it up and rubbed it. Out popped a genie.

The genie said, “Okay, okay…you released me from the lamp, blah blah blah blah blah! This is the fourth time this month and I’m getting a little sick of these wishes so you can forget about three of them. You only get one wish!”

The man sat and thought about it for a while. Finally, he said, “I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii but I’m scared to fly and I get very seasick. Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over there to visit?”

The man said okay and tried to think of a really good wish. Finally, he said, “I’ve been married and divorced four times. My wives always said that I don’t care and that I’m insensitive. So, I wish that I could understand women…know how they feel inside and what they’re thinking when they give me the silent treatment…know why they’re crying, know what they really want when they say ‘nothing’…know how to make them truly happy.”

The genie said, “You want that bridge with two lanes or four?”

Joe had asked Bob to help him out with the deck after work, so Bob went straight over to Joe’s place.

When they got to the door, Joe went straight to his wife, gave her a hug and told her how beautiful she was and how much he had missed her at work.

When it was time for supper, he complimented his wife on her cooking, kissed her and told her how much he loved her.

Once they were working on the deck, Bob told Joe that he was surprised that he fussed so much over his wife. Joe said that he’d started this about six months ago and it had revived their marriage… things couldn’t be better.

Bob thought he’d give it a go.

When he got home, he gave his wife a massive hug, kissed her and told her that he loved her.

His wife burst into tears.

Bob was confused and asked why she was crying.

She said, “This is the worst day of my life. First, little Billy fell off his bike and twisted his ankle. Then, the washing machine broke and flooded the basement. And now, you come home drunk!”

Superstar - Hindi ( Audio Review )

Rekha Bharadwaj is scintillating in the haunting Aankhon se, ably supported by Ustad Sultan Khan, while Raaj’s fresh, unconventional vocals glisten in the sing-alongish guitar track Ajnabi. Dont I Love Or Do I Love U, despite Adnan Sami and Sunidhi’s zippy vocals and some groovy hip-hoppish backgrounds, is rather mediocre. Rafa dafa, despite the multitude of singers, falls in the same bracket. But, the soundtrack belongs to Man tu talbat, with generous doses of Middle Eastern strains and Hamza’s superb vocals. Even the multiple versions (Electro, Spanish and Remix!) are terrific! After a series of uninteresting soundtracks, Shamir Tandon arrives!

Race - Hindi ( Audio Review )

Pritam’s Neeraj fixation continues pretty well in Race saanson ki, spectacularly showcasing the composer’s mastery over sound, while Atif’s passionate vocals considerably elevate an otherwise middling tune in Pehli nazar mein. Dekho nashe carries the trademark Jesse Cook sound and is appropriately catchy. Taz and Monali steal the show with their sprightly vocals in the groovy Mujh pe to and the seductive Zara zara, respectively. The already dancy soundtrack gets another CD with all the tracks remixed by DJ Suketu – conveniently rocks the dance floor! Race’s soundtrack is typical Pritam – rhythmic, with an assortment of interesting sounds from world music.

Mail from frustated Victim of chain Mail

I wanted to thank all my friends and family who have forwarded chain letters to me in 2003 & 2004 & 2005 & 2006 ^ 2007
Because of your kindness:

* I stopped drinking Coca Cola after I found out that it’s good for removing toilet stains.

* I stopped going to the movies for fear of sitting on a needle infected with AIDS.

* I smell like a wet dog since I stopped using deodorants because they cause cancer.

* I don’t leave my car in the parking lot or any other place and sometimes. I even have to walk about 7 blocks for fear that someone will drug me with a perfume sample and try to rob me.

* I also stopped answering the phone for fear that they may ask me to dial a stupid number and then I get a phone bill from with calls to Uganda, Singapore and Tokyo.

* I also stopped drinking anything out of a can for fear that I will get sick from the rat feces and urine.

* When I go to parties, I don’t look at any girl, no matter how hot she is, for fear that she will take me to a hotel, drug me then take my kidneys and leave me taking a nap in a bathtub full of ice.

* I also donated all my savings to the Amy Bruce account. A sick girl that was about to die in the hospital about 7,000 times. (Poor girl! she’s been 7 since 1993…)

* I went bankrupt from bounced checks that I made expecting the $15,000 that Microsoft and AOL were supposed to send me when I participated in their special e-mail program would arrive soon.

PAYPERPOST and its Benefits

A lot of people blog to share their everyday experience and I am one of them. Every day was going as usual until on one day, my friend Sidharth told me that I can make money by blogging through payperpost. I got really thrilled on joining this venture.Here I am now to give a brief introduction about payperpost and its benefits. My first impression when my friend said that I can make money through blogging was unbelievable, I just thought that he was playing games with me. After few days he showed me the cheque he received from payperpost and I was bamboozled. My joy grew no bounds and I immediately signed with payperpost.I got my blog approved and here I am starting my venture to earn bucks with this firm. Payperpost is a network for blogging where bloggers will search for opportunities in a topic they would love to blog about and advertisers pay the bloggers for their work and publicity.The blog can be about a new product,company and the benefits of a product and so on.As the name implies the company will pay you the money for each and every post you write for them. Payperpost is one of the best systems and both bloggers and the advertisers get benefits.Bloggers get the bucks for the post they write for the advertisers and the advertisers get buzz,reviews and opinions. All these things are possible only through payperpost. It is a win-win situation for all and one must make the most out of it.

GTA IV April End Release

Finally fourth franchise of Grand Theft Auto is releasing on April 29. It had been originally been set for October 2007 release. In order to release the game simultaneously in both XBOX360 and PS3, Rockstar Games took a lot time in developing this game. Being one of the most awaited game of 2008, it can definitely overthrow the HALO3 from its current top slot.

GOD of War III for PS3

All most all of em who owns a SONY PS2 would have played the God of War I and II. With its superb visuals, ambidextrous game-play and fantastic story it enthralled us all. Now SONY is planning to launch the next sequel to this trilogy which can be expected in late 2009. Considering that the game developers taking more time to develop games for PS3 SONY has further delayed its release. GOW-III for PS3 can be compared to HALO-3 for XBOX360 and hence SONY doesn't want to rush things up which might lead to lot of bugs. So all GOW fanatics think twice before you buy an XBOX360, because God of War is an awesome game which you might not want to miss.

Heath Ledger found dead

Heath Ledger the Australian born actor whose role as a cowboy in movie Brokeback Mountain earned him a nomination for an Academy Award, was found dead Tuesday in an apartment in Manhattan with sleeping pills near his naked body.(Heath Ledger's body being taken into ambulance from his apartment)
Heath was found dead around 2:30 by his house maid. She found his lying motionless in his bed and she tried to revive him but it was of no use. Immediately she called for help but it was too late. The cause of his death is not yet known and postmortem will be done on Wednesday.

Chennai Metro Rail Project

We all know that Delhi's metro rail project was a huge success. Now the Tamil Nadu government is also planning to set up a metro rail right at its capital. This project is worth Rs.9575 crores and is likely to be funded by Japanese Bankers. Metro Rail in Chennai will make life easier for the people around here who otherwise have to face the huge traffic around the city.

Markets Crash in BSE and NSE

The turmoil in the U.S. financial markets continued to torment domestic stocks and the other emerging and Asian stock markets for the second consecutive day on Tuesday. However, Indian stock indices made a remarkable recovery almost at the end of the trading hours — the benchmark 30-Share BSE Sensex recovered nearly 1600 points from its earlier losses in the day — as it limited its losses to 875.41 points or 4.97 per cent from its previous trading day’s loss of 1408.35 points or 7.41 per cent. The Sensex ended at 16,729.94.

However, market participants are expecting a rebound in stock prices on Wednesday as the U.S. Federal Reserve cut the rates sharply by 75 basis points to salvage the American economy on Tuesday.

Trading on the BSE and NSE was halted for an hour on account of volatility — there was a crash of more than 2000 points — almost immediately after the start of the day.

Though the markets ignored all talk of strong economic fundamentals from the Finance Minister in the morning after the re-start of trading, some positive cues from the European markets fuelled a recovery at the end. Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs), the major players in the market, withdrew their funds and the markets crashed.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had been regularly warning that India was not immune to global financial shocks.

The RBI felt that the outlook for the global situation was far more uncertain than before. In its monetary policy review scheduled for January 29, the RBI is expected to take a view on the possible recession in the United States.

Openers Selection Dilemma

The Indian Cricket team management today gave a hint that Wassim Jaffer won't be opening for India. Sehwag, Karthik and Irfan Pathan are being considered for the top 2 slots. Sehwag and Irfan showed immense talent and responsibility in Perth Test. Sehwag thrashed the Aussies bowling attack during the initial overs and Pathan played some impeccable shots all around the ground, later Pathan was also awarded the man of the match award. But selecting Karthik will be the brightest choice because he has the experience to bat in the upper order and also he contributes himself completely during fielding. Selection of openers is very important as they lay the initial foundation for a massive score.

First Day in R&D, TAFE ( PROJECT )

I have never dressed myself in complete formals, but since I was going to a company I had to. When I entered the building, my first impression was it being an airport. There were tight securities everywhere. No camera, mobile, pen-drive, floppy disc, compact disc or any kind out of electronic items were allowed inside the premise. Suddenly I was startled when one of the security guard checked me for bombs, man that was cool. I felt as though I was a criminal trying to blow up the entire building LOL. But as soon as I entered the premise I was introduced to all my project members by the project leader. The atmosphere out there was very good, I made the most out of it. I and my friends asked many doubts relating to our project and we always got good answers.

Boat Tragedy at Queensland

On Jan 16, two boats collided in Queensland Amusement Park head on. All but a 11 year old girl was rescued. Also during the new year eve, the set up stage in Savera Hotel broke apart which led to three death. Why are the people in Chennai are not giving importance to safety measures which is a must for all.

By safety measures I don't mean merely making sure that there are a maximum x number of people per boat . Even if one were to suspect that the boat was over crowded, or that the boats collided because one or the other boatman made an error of judgment, it is galling to think that first aid was not rendered in time. Parents too could think of giving a crowded boat a miss and waiting their turn for the next boat.( Yes, I know that might mean a delay of a hour or more.)
What could be the cause for such mishaps--lack of training? Awareness? Sheer impatience?
Whatever it is, so far this year has begun tragically. Hopefully, health and safety measures will take the prime spot it deserves among entities.

Velli Thirai - Audio Review

The sonorous melody Uyirile glistens with Rahman’ish touches across interludes, backgrounds and the tune that seems reaches varying, Rahman-like highs! Dhaiyare dhaiya is incredibly innovative - dollops of Rahman’ish flourishes, Celtic deviations, with generous stepdancing elements thrown in. Sooriyane has Lucky Ali mincing Tamil words into a mess, within a neat, Rock’ish tune, while Kanji paanayin, while being thoroughly enjoyable, showcases both the composer’s immaturity in using utterly disparate stock sounds and seeking valid inspiration from Rahman’s fusion-qawali tracks like Monalisa. But, despite all this, Vellithirai is a very interesting soundtrack and a confident step ahead for the young composer.

Vaazhthugal - Audio Review

Beyond the facade of neat backgrounds, the ‘kudumba-paattu’ Chinna chinna is utterly clichéd. Endhan vaanamum and Unmela aasapattu are significantly better - typical Yuvan-styled, rhythmic and reminiscent of the composer’s work in Deepavali. Kannil vandhadhum, on the other hand, merely drags, despite the heartfelt lyrics while Muzhumai nila is a shockingly embarrassing attempt at tuning Bharathidaasan’s eternal words. Thankfully the composer trumps towards the closure with Pookkal rasithadhu, with fabulous vocals by Haricharan, considerable innovations in the sound and lovely interludes.

Polladhavan - Tamil

Despite the clichés, (songs, scrawny lead actor!) director Vetrimaaran succeeds with Pollaadhavan mainly through the masterful screenplay that spins an unusual tale with things progressively spinning out of control, much to our surprise! As for the scrawny lead, director Shankar, when he was re-launching Prabhudeva (post Indu!) in Kaadhalan, placed a minor Karate learning shot to convince us that a bag of bones could possibly deal with a hefty man. But, while Dhanush does look the part of a lower middle class boy yearning for a bike, the only other parts that equals Shankar’s Karate-shot are Dhanush’s mom asking him to get a bike of his size and Dhanush calling himself ‘chappai’. The chappai does go on to smash the shit out of the larger-sized villains, though, quite implausibly. Even the ravishing-heroine-falling-for-scrawny-hero part is sheer annoyance. Such quibbles aside, the film’s depiction of the urban underworld is superbly gritty. Most people live their parts amazingly well, specially Dhanush’s dad and Selvam, the lead villain. Pollaadhavan is enjoyably seeped in reality about ordinary people in extraordinary situations, except for one thing that continues to plague Tamil cinema - pandering to the hero, not for his emoting abilities, but for his connections.

Kalloori - Movie

Kalloori is a brilliant example of perfect casting - Akhil, the girl who plays Kayalvizhi and the rest of the gang, and of course Tamanna, who’s ticket to fame till recently was being mistakenly identified online as the infamous bar girl Tarannum - the casting here simply steals the show. The milieu, dialogues and the narrative is achingly real, with Joshua Sridhar’s music working superbly in the background. The silent, untold romance between Akhil and Tamanna is handled with amazing maturity and intelligence - every stroke of directorial touch working big time in identifying and presenting the first signs of love oh-so beautifully. My predominantly city-led education wouldn’t have let me identify with the goings-on of a small town arts college, but the three years I’ve spent in Salem held me in good stead, in getting somewhat close. If director Balaji Shaktivel intended to give a rude jolt to his audiences through that unexpectedly harsh climax, he’s succeeded. It’s mighty sudden, though a tad too rude for a film that, for most parts, is hopeful. Like Kaadhal, Kalloori showcases accurately and with heartwarming flourishes, the uncluttered lives of a Tamilnadu we city dwellers have learned to leave behind and ignore.

Jodha Akbar

Azeem-o-shaan shahenshah has Rahman playing with orchestral opulence truly fit for an emperor, in a fragmented, rhythm-dominated context. The most interesting part is the blend of very Indian pieces amidst grand Mughal splendor, perhaps fittingly mirroring the relative importance of the film’s two protagonists. In lamhon ke daaman mein, for most parts, is serenely beautiful and even those intermittent high points in chorus harmonize delectably with the main melody. Sonu Nigam and Madhushree’s vocals are, as usual, delightful. Javed Ali gets a cracker of a tune in Jashn-e-bahaaraa and he handles the solo responsibly – since the song literally rests on his rendition – and fabulously. Rahman seems to be enjoying himself thoroughly, singing Khwaja mere khwaja, even as he, as the composer, elevates the sufi strains expertly within a reasonably modern orchestral license. Bela Shende is spectacular in the princely, semi-Bhajan where Javed Akhtar evokes - quite interestingly - lord Krishna’s separation from his beloved, for Jodhaa’s pangs of separation from Akbar, a Mughal emperor! Truly secular and touchingly imaginative! The creative freedom Rahman and Ashutosh have sought in this soundtrack may not necessarily reflect the appropriate period in Indian history but makes up by being lavishly inventive and tremendously sweeping!

Narain Disappoints Again

After the podium finish in China A1GP, it was a disappointing for India’s Narain Karthikeyan in the fifth round of the A1GP season at the Taupo Motorsport Park in New Zealand on Saturday. Narain tackled the tricky weather conditions with comfort but experienced severe gear problems in the entire qualifying session. Narain will now start 20th and 19th on the grid for Sunday’s Sprint and Feature races respectively. The team’s mechanics, along with A1GP and Zytek engineers, are trying to work on the problem and will look at turning around the car’s performance for Sunday.

Sreesath and Munaf are Fit

Sreesath and Munaf Patel were declared fit after their Fitness test which took place on this Friday and Saturday. Both of them were injured and were ruled out from touring Australia. Sreesath with his aggression will be a great asset to the Indian team, who can put his aggression for good use.
"Aussie watch out Sreesath is coming to bowl you out"

Irfan Pathan's regains form

Irfan Pathan was named man of the match of the Perth test in Australia. He gave the early breakthroughs for India in both the first and second innings which gave India some chances to impose pressure to the opposition. Pathan took 5 wickets and got the two openers twice in the match. He also came good in batting, he was sent has one down in the second innings; where he pushed the opposition to the shore with his powerful but elegant strokes. He deserves this man of the match award and hope he repeats the same in Canberra test.

Perth Test - India vs Australia

Finally the mighty Australian's winning streak of 17 consecutive wins have been thwarted by the Indians. Indians played good cricket right from day 1 of the test match. Whats remarkable about this test match victory is that India beat Aussies in their favorite turf the WACA pitch. The WACA ground is famous for its bouncy track, where all batsmen fear the pace attack of the agile Aussie bowlers. But the Indian batsmen were focussed and were determined to win this test match after their fateful loss to the Aussies at Sydney. Indians braved against all misfortunes during their second test match and showed it to others that they are the only team in the world to beat Aussies in their HOME. Ten years ago Indians beat Aussies in their Home town and now the history is getting repeated.

Chake de India... You are doing a great job and you deserve this victory....

ICC New Rules

1) Ricky Ponting – (THE TRULY GENUINE CRICKETER OF THE CRICKET ERA AND WHOSE INTEGRITY SHOULD NOT BE DOUBTED ) should be considered as the FOURTH UMPIRE. As per the new rules, FOURTH UMPIRE decision is final and will over ride any decisions taken by any other umpires. ON-FIELD umpires can seek the assistance of RICKY PONTING even if he is not on the field. This rule is to be made, so that every team should understand the importance of the FOURTH UMPIRE .

(2) While AUSTRALIAN TEAM is bowling, If the ball flies anywhere close to the AUSTRALIAN FIELDER(WITHIN 5 metre distance), the batsman is to be considered OUT irrelevant of whether the catch was taken cleanly or grassed. Any decision for further clarification should be seeked from the FOURTH UMPIRE. This is made to ensure that the cricket is played with SPORTIVE SPIRIT by all the teams.

(3) While BATTING, AUSTRALIAN players will wait for the ON-FIELD UMPIRE decisions only (even if the catch goes to the FIFTH SLIP as the ball might not have touched the bat). Each AUSTRALIAN batsman has to be out FOUR TIMES (minimum) before he can return to the pavilion. In case of THE CRICKETER WITH INTEGRITY, this can be higher.

(4) UMPIRES should consider a huge bonus if an AUSTRALIAN player scores a century. Any wrong decisions can be ignored as they will be paid huge bonus and will receive the backing of the AUSTRALIAN team and board.

(5) All AUSTRALIAN players are eligible to keep commenting about all players on the field and the OPPONENT TEAM should never comment as they will be spoiling the spirit of the AUSTRALIAN team. Any comments made in any other language are to be considered as RACIALISM only.

(6) MATCH REFREE decisions will be taken purely on the AUSTRALIAN TEAM advices only. Player views from the other teams decisions will not be considered for hearing. MATCH REFREES are to be given huge bonus if this rule is implemented.

(7) NO VISITING TEAM should plan to win in AUSTRALIA. This is to ensure that the sportive spirit of CRICKET is maintained.

(8) THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE : If any bowler gets RICKY PONTING - “THE UNDISPUTED CRICKETER WITH INTEGTIRY IN THE GAME OF CRICKET” more than twice in a series, he will be banned for the REST OF THE SERIES. This is to ensure that the best batsman/Captain will be played to break records and create history in the game of CRICKET.

These rules will clarify better to the all the teams VISITING AUSTRALIA

Beautiful Story

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.

Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window. The man in the other bed began to live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man couldn’t hear the band - he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days and weeks passed. One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone. Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn to look out the windowbeside the bed.

It faced a blank wall.

The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, “Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.


“There is tremendous happiness in making others happy,

despite our own situations”

“Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared,

is doubled”

“If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have

“Today is a gift, that’s why it is called the present.”

Sledging in Cricket

The Prasad Vs Sohail Incident: Hero to Zero in 3 easy steps
Chasing India’s score of 287-8, Pakistan got off to a flyer of a start, Aamir Sohail and Saeed Anwar went about tearing the Indian bowling attack. Pakistan looked all set to win as they reached 110 odd for the loss of just 1 wicket within the 15 overs.

1. Play a Great Shot: Aamir Sohail was completely bent on demolishing the Indian bowling to pieces, charging down the track to the faster bowlers (if u can call Prasad that) in this particular case he came down the ground (a good 4-5 steps, anymore and he would have hit Prasad too) and slashed the bowl over vacant off side area… the ball disappeared into the fence in a flash … what followed has since been etched in the memories of every cricket fan in the subcontinent.

2. Act Over smart: Aamir Sohail is no Miandad. But he tries to be and fails miserably. Sohail after hitting the shot pointed his bat the area where the bowl had disappeared and then towards Prasad apparently gesturing where he will send the next one.
It’s not everyday that you see a batsman sledging the bowler, and Sohail was about to learn just why.

3. Get what you called for: Sohail attempting to repeat the shot (albeit with his feet stuck to the ground this time) made room and exposed his stumps, and his weakness, and in return lost his wicket and his face.

As the wicket lay uprooted, Prasad returned the favour to Sohail, pointing to the pavilion this time.

The comeback was truly remarkable, almost a miracle. Prasad has bowled thousands of deliveries and taken hundreds of wickets in his career but, it was this one granted him a place in the History of Indian Cricket… for ever… the ghost of Miandad’s last ball six was exorcised, once and for all.

Steve Waugh Vs Curtly Ambrose Episode
It really does not get any bigger than this, the two legends of cricket came face to face, literally and engrossed in a verbal duel in a test match in Trinidad. All the juicy details were not to be known until Steve Waugh came out with his autobiography.

Ambrose repeatedly stared Waugh down during a searing spell, and Waugh, who sized up the towering Ambrose, said: “What the fuck are you looking at?”

Ambrose was stunned because, as Waugh says (in his Autobiography), “no one had ever been stupid enough” to speak to him like that.

Ambrose replied, “Don’t cuss me, man”, before Waugh’s response, which had nothing to do with bowling.

“Unfortunately, nothing inventive or witty came to mind, rather another piece of personal abuse: ‘Why don’t you go and get fucked.’ “

The Windies skipper Richie Richardson had a hard time keeping Ambrose from hurting the Aussie.

McGrath Vs Brandes

In a showdown of best pacers of two countries, Brandes made up for his complete absence of batting skills by some displaying some great sense of humor and presence of mind. Aussie paceman Glenn McGrath was bowling to Zimbabwe number 11 Eddo Brandes - who was unable to get his bat anywhere near the ball. McGrath, frustrated that Brandes was still at the crease, wandered up during one particular over and inquired: “Why are you so fat?” Quick as a flash, Brandes replied: “Because every time I make love to your wife, she gives me a biscuit.” Even the Aussie slip fielders were in hysterics.

Viv Richards v Greg Thomas

This incident took place during a county championship match between Glamorgan and Somerset. Glamorgan quickie Greg Thomas had beaten Viv Richards’ bat a couple of times and informed the legendary West Indian ace: “It’s red, round and weighs about five ounces, in case you were wondering.”

The very next ball was given the King Viv treatment and smashed out of the ground, into a river - at which point Richards piped up: “Greg, you know what it looks like. Now go and find it.”

Merv Hughes and Viv Richards

Merv Hughes usually never short of a word while on the field, rarely keeps quite. During a test match in the West Indies Hughes didn’t say a word to Viv, but continued to stare at him after deliveries. “This is my island, my culture. Don’t you be staring at me? In my culture we just bowl.” Merv didn’t reply, but after he dismissed him he announced to the batsman: “In my culture we just say fuck off”

Sachin Tendulkar Vs Abdul Qadir

The year was 1989 the little master had recently made his debut in Pakistan. Sachin not even old enough to get a driving license Sachin Tendulkar was facing the best bowlers in the business. As the Pakistani crowds jeered and mocked holding out the placards saying “”Dudh Pita Bachcha …ghar jaake dudh pee”, (hey kid, go home and drink milk), Sachin sent the then young leg spinner Mustaq Ahmed hiding for cover (he had hit two sixes in one over. The frustrated mentor of Mustaq Ahmed the legendary Abdul Qadir challenges Sachin saying “Bachchon ko kyon mar rahe ho? Hamein bhi maar ke dikhao ` (Why are you hitting kids? Try and hit me).

Sachin was silent, since then we all have come to know that he lets his bat do the talking. Abdul Quadir had made a simple request and Sachin obliged, and how. Sachin hit 4 sixes in the over, making the spinner look the kid in the contest. The over read 6, 0, 4, 6 6 6, David had felled Goliath … and a legend was born.

Ian Healy Vs Ranatunga

Ian Healy’s made a legendary comment which was picked up by the Channel 9 microphones when Arjuna Ranatunga called for a runner on a particularly hot night during a one dayer in Sydney… “You don’t get a runner for being an overweight, unfit, fat cunt!”

McGrath Vs Ramnaresh Sarwan
Sarwan, the West Indies vice-captain, and McGrath went toe-to-toe in an ugly shouting match in Antigua in May 2003, The incident was sparked after Sarwan, on his way to a match-winning second-innings century, reportedly reacted to lurid taunts from McGrath by telling him he should get the answers from his wife, who was recovering from radiation therapy for secondary cancer.

The details:
McGrath: “So what does Brian Lara’s dick taste like?”
Sarwan: “I don’t know. Ask your wife. “
McGrath (losing it): “If you ever fucking mention my wife again, I’ll fucking rip your fucking throat out.”

Mark Waugh Vs Adam Parore
Mark Waugh was standing at second slip, Adam Parore relatively new to cricket came to the crease played and; missed the first ball.
Mark Waugh- “Ohh, I remember you from a couple years ago in Australia. You were shit then, you’re fucking useless now”.
Parore- (Turning around) “Yeah, that’s me and when I was there you were going out with that old, ugly shit and now I hear you’ve married her. You dumb cunt.”

Ravi Shastri Vs Mike Whitney
Its common knowledge that Indian’s usually don’t resort to sledging, and the Aussies swear by it. In this rare occasion the tables had turned and it was the Aussies who were at the receiving end.
Shastri hits the ball towards Mike Whitney (the 12th man in the game) and looks for a single, this guy gets the ball in and says
Whitney: “If you leave the crease I’ll break your fucking head”
Shastri didn’t bat an eyelid before replying: “If you could bat as well as you can talk you wouldn’t be the fucking 12th man”

Merv Hughes Vs Cronje
Merv Hughes was one of the greatest exponents of the fine “art” of sledging. Once during a tour game in South Africa Hughes was bowling to Hansie Cronje. It was an especially flat wicket and Cronje was hitting Hughes for fours and sixes all over the place.
After the umpteenth boundary, Hughes headed down the pitch, stood near Cronje, let out a fart and said: “Try hitting that for six.” It was five minutes before the guffawing stopped and play could resume.

Robin Smith Vs Merv Hughes
During 1989 Lords Test, Merv Hughes said to Robin Smith after he played and missed: ” You can’t fucking bat”. Smith replied, both with the bat and with words, he smashed Hughes to the boundary and said ” Hey Merv, we make a fine pair. I can’t fucking bat and you can’t fucking bowl ”

Team mates Sledging
England were playing Pakistan and, at what turned out to be a crucial moment later on, Frank Tyson managed to get an outside edge off a Pakistani batsman after the batsman had been frustrating them on a hot sweaty day. The ball went right through the hands of Raman Subba Rao who was standing in first slip and through his legs. After the over Raman heads over to the bowler and says, “Sorry Frank, I should’ve closed my legs.” Frank Tyson, who didn’t find any of this amusing, quipped back, “No, you bastard, your mother should have.”

Hughes Vs Miandad
The inimitable Merv Hughes has forgotten more about sledging than most people will ever know, so he was more than a little miffed to be on the receiving end in the 1991 Adelaide Test against Pakistan. Hughes and Javed Miandad almost came to blows after the Pakistani batsman dared to call big Merv a “fat bus conductor”. But revenge was sweet for Hughes. A few balls later he finally got his man and as Miandad walked past, he could not resist shouting “Tickets, please!”

Flintoff Vs Tino Best
Best, never short of a word or two when he is bowling, was done up like a kipper by the England all-rounder as West Indies slumped to defeat in the first Test. Flintoff saw his opponent preparing to face Giles’ off-spin and shouted: “Watch the windows, Tino!” The wind-up had the desired effect, causing Best to come charging out of his crease like a man possessed. He took a wild swing at the ball, missed and was promptly stumped by Geraint Jones. Not a broken window in sight. Flintoff could not contain himself and spent the next five minutes giggling like a teenager, as Best sat on the balcony ruing his stupidity.

Viv Richards to Gavaskar
Gavaskar had decided to relinquish his opening position and come in at no 4 for that test. But, Malcolm Marshall fired out Anshuman Gaekwad and Dilip Vengsarkar for ducks, setting the stage for Gavaskar to walk in at 0/2.And he thought there would be less pressure! Viv Richards says “Man, it don’t matter where you come in to bat, the score is still zero.”

Steve Waugh Vs Parthiv Patel
Amidst all the hype surrounding his farewell match, Steve Waugh had to contend with an unexpected dose of his own medicine from a player half his age.
As Waugh fought a grim battle to stave off defeat in the series-deciding fourth Test in Sydney, 19 year-old Indian wicket-keeper Parthiv Patel tried to unsettle the veteran batsman through some banter.
The baby-faced Patel egged on the 38 year-old stalwart to play one of his sweep shots one last time.
The India ‘keeper was saying, ‘Come on, just one more of the famous slog-sweeps before you finish’
Waugh replied: ‘Look, show a bit of respect. You were in nappies when I debuted 18 years ago.”

Rod Marsh Vs Ian Botham
When Botham took guard in an Ashes match, Marsh welcomed him to the wicket with the immortal words: “So how’s your wife and my kids?”

Trueman and Aussie batsman
In an England v Australia Test during early 1960’s Trueman was fielding close to the gate from the pavilion. As a new batsman came out he turned to shut the gate, Trueman said “Don’t bother son, you won’t be out there long enough.”

Daryll Cullinan and Shane Warne
As Cullinan was on his way to the wicket, Warne told him he had been waiting 2 years for another chance to humiliate him. “Looks like you spent it eating.” Cullinan retorted.

Adam Parore and Daryll Cullinan
Because Cullinan is well known for being Warne’s bunny, New Zealand keeper Parore greeted the South African, carefully playing the first ball from kiwi Chris Harris, with a cry of: ” Bowled Warnie!”

Malcolm Marshall and David Boon
Malcolm Marshall was bowling to David Boon who had played and missed a couple of times. Marshall: “Now David, Are you going to get out now or am I going to have to bowl around the wicket and kill you?”

James Ormond and Mark Waugh
James Ormond had just come out to bat on an Ashes tour and was greeted by Mark Waugh “Fuck me, look who it is? Mate, what are you doing out here, there’s no way you’re good enough to play for England “
James: “Maybe not, but at least I’m the best player in my family”

Waugh Vs Jamie Siddons
In a Sheffield Shield game between NSW and SA, a Waugh twin (not sure which) was taking an eternity to take guard, asking the umpire for centre, middle and leg, two legs - the whole lot. Then he steps away towards leg side and has another look around the field, before re checking centre.
Jamie Siddons is at slip, and decided enough is enough. He yells out. “For Christ sake, it’s not a fuckin test match”
Waugh replies: “Of course it isn’t … You’re here.”

Mother (in law) of all sledges
In the 1980’s Ian Botham returned early from a tour of Pakistan, and on radio joked “Pakistan is the sort of country to send your mother in-law to.” Needless to say the Pakistanis did not find this amusing, and when Pakistan defeated England in the 1992 World Cup Final, Aamer Sohail told Ian Botham ” Why don’t you send your mother-in-law out to play, she cannot do much worse.”

All Time Classic
Perhaps the most famous sledge in a World Cup match took place the epic Super Six clash between Australia and South Africa (in 2003). South Africa looked on course to a routine victory with Australian captain Steve Waugh at the crease and on 56. At that stage, Waugh clipped the ball in the air straight to South African fielder Herschelle Gibbs. In his haste, Gibbs dropped the ball when attempting to throw it in the air in celebration as he had not fully controlled it. As he passed him, Waugh is said to have asked Gibbs: “How does it feel to have dropped the World Cup?”. Waugh carried on to make an unbeaten 120 and Australia posted an unlikely win and won the World Cup a few days later.

Waugh has however denied that quote, instead claiming that he said “looks like you’ve dropped the match”.

Special one from the most laziest looking but a great batsman of all time
Inzamam-ul-Haq once told Brett Lee to “Stop bowling off spinners.”
