Is it a Bird? Is it a plane? No, Its Jonty.

Jonathan Neil “Jonty” Rhodes (born 27 July 1969) is possibly the best fielder in the history of cricket. He as we all know played for the South African cricket team between 1992 and 2003. In cricket good, rather brilliant fielding is synonymous with Jonty. He is probably the only cricketer who is not remembered for his batting or bowling but for his fielding which is still possibly considered a secondary skill as compared to the other two. True to his reputation, on 14 November 1993, he created a world record in fielding which has stood unabashed for the last 20

The Djoke is on you, Wimbledon!

When sport is at its best and the finest, it is also at its worst. A match that is poised on the razor’s edge throughout, when it ends, it splits the two equally matched opponents as a winner and another as, hate as much as I like to call it, the loser. It magnifies the tiniest of gaps between the opponents and throws them apart at two extreme ends of emotion, one as a victor and the other as vanquished. Wimbledon, the greatest sporting event in the world was no exception to this rule. It pitched two finely gifted players

प्रिया सोरेन, टुम्पा कुमारीः गाती तुम हो, आवाज हमारी बुलंद हो रही है

प्रिया और टुम्पा जिसे शायद ये भी नहीं पता कि एक्स्ट्रा को कैरिकुलर एक्टिविटी किसे कहते हैं और यदि यही आवाज किसी कॉन्वेंट स्कूल में पढ़ रही बच्ची की होती तो आज कहां होती ? उसने शायद ही कभी डांस या सिंगिंग फ्लोर का नाम सुना हो..उसके पास जो हुनर है, उसका रास्ता सीधे सारेगमप लिटिल चैम्प्स की तरफ खुलता है. वो बस इतना जानती है कि दरी-चटाई पर बैठी होने के बीच उनकी मैम गाने कहेगी तो पहले थोड़ा लजाते-शर्माते हुए लेकिन फिर बस गा देना है. बृजकिशोर नेत्रहीन बालिका विद्यालय,रांची में पढ़ाई कर रही टुम्पा जिसकी यूट्यूब पर

अटल बिहारी वाजपाई

(एक परिचय) [मैं आदरणीय पूर्व प्रधानमंत्री श्री अटल बिहारी वाजपाई जी का बहुत सम्मान करता हूँ| सन् १९९९ में श्री वाजपाई जी जब प्रधानमंत्री बने थे और उन्होंने कई दलों के साथ मिलकर राजग की सरकार बनाई थी तब कवि हृदय श्री वाजपाई जी यदि किसी को अपने कवि मूड में अपना परिचय एवं व्यक्तित्व बता रहे होते तो उसकी कल्पना मेरे छोटे से मस्तिष्क में कविता के रूप में कुछ इस प्रकार उत्पन्न हुई थी| मैं आशा करता हूँ कि इस कल्पना से किसी को चोट नहीं पहुँचेगी और यदि किसी को यह खराब लगती है तो उसके लिए

Revealing Tagore the Painter on His 154th Birthday

We all are aware of the great literary figure Rabindra Tagore. Yes, he was the first Indian to win the Nobel Prize for Literature and his composed verse ‘Jana Gana Mana’ was adopted as the country’s national anthem. Though known to the world as renowned poet, versatility was his middle name. He was a poet, novelist, playwright, philosopher, social reformer, musician and also an artist. Egged by an insatiable urge for creativity, Tagore took up the brush when he was around 65. In his own words, “Now in the evening of my life, my mind is filled with forms and

Remembering Karl Marx on his 197th Birthday – May 5th

The worker becomes all the poorer the more wealth he produces, the more his production increases in power and range. The worker becomes an ever cheaper commodity the more commodities he creates. With the increasing value of the world of things proceeds in direct proportion to the devaluation of the world of men. Labour produces not only commodities; it produces itself and the worker as a commodity — and does so in the proportion in which it produces commodities generally.  –         Marx, Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts (1844) The philosopher, revolutionary thinker and social scientist, Karl Marx was the most influential

Read on for a probable reason……… Look at Shri Krishna from Duruyodhana’s point of view… Who do you see? The greatest villain of the era – the one responsible for destroying not just the Kuru vansh but also all the other kingdoms who supported them blindly – fought for them, all soldiers….several families – those who belonged to the supporters of Kuru vansh!
