Too many things today March 18, 2007

Posted by Sharath Rao in india, politics, sport.

From today’s newspapers :

This ( “while coach Bob Woolmer walked aimlessly through an army of Irish supporters….Hours later, he was dead.”)


that ( ““Every player doesn’t get a grand farewell. As for my future, I am in no position right now to think about it.”)


this ( “About 40 per cent of the Rs 12,000 crore that rides on the Indian cricket team in the World Cup … could get wiped out if the team does not reach the final rounds.” )


that. ( ” As President Pervez Musharraf deftly distanced himself from the move to suspend the Chief Justice …… speculation is rife that the axe may fall on Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz” )

It all reminds me of Henry Kissinger’s legendary quip several decades ago

Next week there can’t be any crisis. My schedule is already full.

Ofcourse I am not required to fire-fight any of this as Kissinger was in his days as the NSA and/or Sec. of State. But then, how can so many such things happen in a single day ? Why do things worth writing about keep happening ? The newspaper business is evergreen I guess – even if there is a depression, they will have that depression to write about 😦


And if you ever had any doubt about Kissinger being the modern day Chanakya, watch this video.Other Kissinger quotes. My fav :

Ninety percent of the politicians give the other ten percent a bad reputation. 😀
