What if they do this in India

Plenty of anti-social elements in India anyway so one train defecator won't hurt.

Why it pays to be Chinese

Ya, commit a crime and get away with it. Am not saying he did it though.

Diwali Blues

There's something really depressing about going to office on Diwali. More so when you're the only guy in office barring the security guard snoring outside. But as the saying goes, you gotta do what you gotta do. Hope you guys had more fun. Happy Diwali anyway.

Track your Pics

Came across this website called Tracking Shot that automates interesting montages with photos and music. Upload your favourite still pics and music and Voila! - an instant movie is ready.

Check out my first creation (that of my IIMC days) here. It took me just 5 minutes after the painstaking task of uploading selected pics.

It's not problem free - you cannot completely control the slideshow - and mine is obviously too fast. But then it's the thought that counts. Right?

As one classmate put it, the montage brought "tears into her eyes". I presume they were tears of joy at this blast from the past. Go ahead and try making your own movies with photos and music.

Indian football gets a canine twist

Perhaps the only highlight of last evening's Asian Cup qualifying match in Bangalore was the mangy mutt who rushed to provide succour to the losing Indian side.

Play was held up for some minutes as the friendly canine gambolled around the field giving some respite to our beleaguered football players.

But the dog offered its four paws in vain. Bob Houghton's boys put up a brave front, especially in the second half, but Ryuji Bando struck twice to give holders Japan a well-deserved 3-0 victory.

Bhaichung Bhutia had even more reason to be unhappy. On Wednesday, the Indian Football Association suspended him for the remaining three matches of the Kolkata Premier League. The former skipper is also being fined Rs 50,000. His crime - showing dissent during a domestic league match in September.

Moral: Every dog has its day but Indian football's only canine fan would be better off watching cricket.
