Cricket's Most Iconic moments

Now i have been thinking to write something about cricket for a long time. But i really don't want to write about the current ongoing series in England. That's still heart breaking to write, as my Indian team got their ass whipped. So let's just go back to the past and cherish those memories.

This was actually sent to me as an e-mail by a friend of mine. I know many of you don't know about this so just read it and enjoy. There are 21 such iconic moments sorted randomly. Some are most cherishable and some are most disgraceful.

1. Pakistan's Javed Miandad clashed with Australia's Dennis Lillee in one of the most disgraceful incidents on a cricket field. Lillee and Javed collided as the batsman completed a run during the November 1981 Perth Test. Lillee proceeded to kick Javed on the leg to which Javed reacted angrily, threatening to hit the bowler with his bat. Umpire Tony Crafter stepped between the two as Lillee prepared to have another go at Javed. The blame for the incident was laid on Lillee by many experts. Former Australian captains like Bob Simpson and Ian Chappell condemned Lillee's behaviour.

2. In Birmingham, August 7 2005, at the end of one of the greatest Test matches ever, England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff broke away from the team celebrations to console the dejected Australian batsman Brett Lee. Lee and Michael Kasprowicz had brought Australia within three runs of an unlikely win before Kasprowicz got out. England went on to win the Ashes for the first time in 19 years, but this moment stood out and Flintoff was applauded for his thoughtfulness. Despite intense rivalry between the two teams, Flintoff and Lee remain mates.

Vedic Rituals and Routines!!! Why do wear marks (tilak, and the like) on the forehead?

img from google

The tilak invokes a feeling of sanctity in the wearer and the others. It is recognized as a religious mark. Its form and colour vary according to one's caste, religious sect or the form of te Lord worshipped.

In earlier times, the four castes (based on varna or colour) - Brahmana, Kshatriya, Vaishya and Sudra - applied marks differently. The brahmin applied a white chandan mark signifying purity, as his profession was of a priestly or academic nature. The kshatriya applied a red kumkum mark signifying valour as he belonged to warrior races. The vaishya wore a yellow kesar or turmeric mark signifying prosperity as he was a businessman or trader devoted to creation of wealth. The sudra applied a black bhasma or kasturi mark signifying service as he supported the work of other three divisions.

Vedic Rituals and Routines!!! Why do we prostrate before parents and elders?

Indians prostrate before their parents, elders, teachers and noble souls, by touching their feet. The elders in turn bless us by placing their hand on or over our heads. Prostration is done daily, when we meet elders and particularly on important occasions like the beginning of a new task, birthdays, festivals, etc. In certain traditional circles, prostration is accompanied by 'abhivaadana', which serves to introduce oneself, announce one's family and lineage.

Vedic Rituals and Routines !!! Why do we do Namaste (Salutation)?

Indians greet each other with namaste. The two palms are placed together in front of the chest and the head bows whilst saying the word namaste. This greeting is for all ----- people younger than us, of our own age, those older, even strangers.

There are five forms of formal traditional greetings in the Sastras, of which 'namaskar' is one. This is understood as prostration, but it actually refers to paying homage as we do today when we greet each other with a namaste.

I never knew that !!! Did you ???

Q: Why do men's clothes have buttons on the right while women's clothes have buttons on the left?
A: When buttons were invented, they were very expensive and worn primarily by the rich. Since most people are right-handed, it is easier to push buttons on the right through holes on the left. Because wealthy women were dressed by maids, dressmakers put the buttons on the maid's right!  And that's where women's buttons have remained since.

Q: Why do ships and aircraft use 'mayday' as their call for help?
A: This comes from the French word m'aidez -meaning 'help me' -- and is pronounced, approximately, 'mayday.'

Naruto 553 : On the Battlefield !!!

Well, in the last chapter, at the ending we saw a hand in the corner of the last page with a ninjutsu. Now everybody was sure, it was Naruto. Itachi and Nagato were also super cool in the previous chapters. But whatever, Itachi always rocks and so does Naruto too.

In the end Naruto gets off to the battlefield in all directions through his shadow clone jutsu in the kyubi mode. When Gaara and the Tsuchikage were fighting, Naruto joins the battle.

You can read my previous review here.

Bleach 462 : Why Me Sad

Why Me Sad ? That's the name of the chapter this week. And it is as always a good chapter. Last week the chapter was really interesting and good, as Ichigo got his powers back and not only that. Everybody accepted to  give him some of their reiatsu. And then at the end there was a shock for all of us, Hitsugaya says that Ginjou was the first ever Substitute Shinigami to appear in the Soul Society

You can view my review for the previous chapter here.

So this chapter starts with Ichigo being shocked at the news of Ginjou being the first ever Substitute Shinigami.

Everything he did made it to the headlines while he lived, and he kept on making news even after his death. This can definitely be attributed to the impact he had and curiosity he generated on people.
