Website musings

Wednesday, September 19, 2007

So i want to start a website
I even got the domain name registered
But i'm wondering what to do about it now....

just some random musings that i put down....
The index should cover stuff that gives a broad oveview
There should be a running ticker with some kinda updates on the side
It should point to stuff that I do - but not display it here for all to see
the opening page should have something catchy on it
it should make the viewer want more..
it should be fashioned like a blog - but not totally like a blog
stuff that should be covered as a must
- links to the blogs
- something abt me
- latest news
- latest happenings
must use flash mostly
the topic.. The focus.. Would have to be current….. Or at even if ain't current - the connection must be there to the present.
it must evoke feelings - strong feelings
it should help me help others
it may not be monetary help - but at least it can help me uide them in some way in life
we all have a core belief - I need to convey mine from this forum
the question is - do I have a core belief that I am aaware of?
at this present moment - it's more like something I want to do
it's more like a journey - that needs be undertaken
life is that same journey
but how does one get a ebsite to reflect that journey?
will it be a judgemental thing - about an individuals journey or a collaborative effort?
I see things - sometimes. These open up a channel to my thoughts. it's like a mind block that melts away
the inspriation is nearly always audio-visual in nature
so - if something I see or hear can open my alleyways - can I do it for others?
if my mind opens up to different possibilities at different points in time - so would it for others
the message will have to evolve constantly
have I seen enough in life to be giving it to others
maybe it's not about giving - it could be more about sharing
there must be countless other sites like this
with loads of individuals who have loads to share
how will I be diffferent?
is it possible to be different?
is it possible to stand apart and say - HEY - this is me. This is what I stand for. I'm not perfect - but I have seen a bit of life - so I want to share it with you. Maybe you can help me do something better. Maybe we can listen to one another and make a difference.
I will have to start small - one by one.
I want to be witty here - but sometimes it's not possible. Sometimes straight facts are more easy to convey
Will they understand me?
I won't know till I try!!!
Somehow - it's all about beating the pain - about being one with it. That oneness will help me get ahead

What a Match!!

Saturday, September 15, 2007
I sat at the edge of my seat – literally – for the entire match.
Never knew which way it’d turn.

It was like a fast paced googly – moving in one way-then another, keeping the viewers engrossed. At 36/4 – it was easy to write of India. Then at 128… you’d think they would make 160. It ended at 141.
Interesting to note that everyone tried to play like a tiger. Then again- we were up against the Pakis!!

The Paki innings started a nd I guess most Indians were hoing like hell that the match didn’t finish in 14.4 overs. We wer out if it did.

A Pakistani win was not in doubt till the 15th over. Then the lights shone – briefly – for India till the 17th over. They required 42 runs off 18 balls. It’d be easy to say SAYONARA.

Then Misbah whacked the crap out of Bhajji & Agy. Suddenly – they required 11 runs off the last 6 balls. The match was tied on the 4th ball and the ending – now, but a formality. Ball 5 – he’s beaten – but eh doesn’t run. Whew!!
Final Ball – highe than normal delivey from Sreesanth, angling outside the off stump and Misbah gets bat to it. Takes off like a rocket. Yuvraj had other plans – he got the ball across and Sreesanth – calmly wjipped the bails off.

India were back in the match!!!

The bowl – out was almost funny!!
Telling a pace bowler to aim at the stumps from a short run-up is not fair. The pakis missed all 3 penalty shots. The Indians – used the guys who could bowl from a short run-up and hit the stumps!

Final result 3-0

Victory India!!

PS: the actual reason we saw all those see-saws in the match – it started on a Friday in the month of Ramazan – we know the team that normally wins on Friday. Then the date changed – it was now a Saturday – it’s also Ganesh Chaturthi!!
I trust in Ganesha – he pulled us thru :-)
