gavaskar - fear of oblivion?

so many issues came and went by as always while i was busy (atleast not showing up here)..even madras received lotsa rain to the extent that some newbies ask when the monsoon wil be over! ( madras only cyclones, low monsoon gmen!) any way now the roads are hit (do they make them of salt that every rain the roads dissolve??) and lots of shit comes up, so its a dreadful stench..
as a cartoon in thuglak depicts it so clearly : 'pothu janam' or common man asks a politico 'when will the roads be done up? whats the point in us having voted u?' and pat the reply comes-"hey..what? u voted?? i put all my votes myself and why am i obliged to fulfill ur needs"..and so it goes..

now that iam here the noisest news needs a mention here..that of aussies pushing pawar! ohhhh give me a were excited and rightly was not as bad as being depicted by our media and many others..infact pawar's first reaction was the best..he said he found nothing very wrong and after all they were celeberating, dont make it a big issue..but then we are starved as a society ain't we?? Gavaskar (oh, he is prolly afraid most of us forgot him- what with no matches on TVs he is signed up) comes up with so much noise and asks every one to cry too along with him..wasn't him (or was it R Mohan) who wrote a decade or so back while covering an Aus tour where Border addresses their then PM (john howard?) by first name and that too with his arm around his back/shoulder..hey, we were all impressed and so was gavs and many others too with that informal air..But now suddenly gavs comes up with a question " will they do like this to their PM?"..hey gavs, they did then and wud do lets not make an issue of it..or alternately can u make some noise abour performers and non-performers in our Indian side..oh! no!! u wud start off suggesting Rohan plays No.1 to 12 and collect all the fees too..
so lets actually keep quiet..shall we??
