Congrats Team India!

Sir, Many congratulations to the Indian Team for winning the Gavasker-Border Test Trophy.
It is indeed a great team effort. An outstanding century by Shikar Dhawan on debut
ably supported by Murali Vijay and a bewitching pace and spin display from our young
bowlers. Cricket fans from all over  the world  have been treated to some fantastic test cricket
since past few weeks. Long live Test Cricket.

Tough road ahead for Nitish

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has declared his intentions clearly,though for the time being, of not aligning withUPA or NDA. That leaves only one option for him, namely, to side with the elusive Third Front; which at the moment, is at an infant stage. I am sure he is aware of the risk involved in treading this path.
In case of either of the conglomerates failing to get a clear majority,the Bihar C.M. would face a minimum of three competitors, other than himself, for the coveted job of PM, who would be too eager to throw their hats in the ring. They are Kumar’s predecessor from his home state, a bhaiji from the most populous state of India, and to give 'due' representation to the fairer sex, a bahenji, also from the same state. Coincidentally, all of them happen to be the ex-CMs of the two northern states.

Nitish: Black horse in the 2014 polls?

If Narendra Modi comes to Delhi, can Nitish be far behind? Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has
sent out a bold-point feeler that would probably tremble his BJP allies and tempt the Congress
ahead of the 2014 power grab.What Nitish Kumar said between the lines-and what he left unsaid is on the table for the 2014 stakes.
Addressing a massive 'Adhikar Rally' at Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi, he has warned the Centre to address the demand of lakhs of Biharis or they would uproot the Government in the next Lok Sabha election.For the ruling UPA, this is as clear as a come-hither call as it can hope to get from an NDA
constituent. To the BJP, it was a laconic dare against promoting his bete noire and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to the poll forefront.
