On the email

Behind Maggi 2 minute noodles pack:

Step 1: Boil one cup of water
Step 2: As soon as ganguly goes for batting, put the noodles in the boiled water and add the tastemaker.
Step 3: Stir till ganguly is on the field.
Step 4: As soon as ganguly is back in pavilion, your noodles are ready to eat.

If that’s an old one, blame me not. It was delivered to me on e-mail, just yesterday.

    Another one on Dada :


    India Pakistan Match has started. As to be expected, it’s a charged up atmosphere and the heat is really on!

    India is put in to bat. As to be expected, three wickets down, for a measly score.

    There is phone call for Ganguly, at the Dressing Room. The Team Manager picks up the call.

    “Hello ! I am Ganguly’s friend speaking . Can I talk to him now ?”

    The Team Manager replies : “Sorry ! He has just gone in to bat . ”

    The caller replies “No problem . I’ll hold the line ! ”

    After the shameful defeat of Indian cricket team to Pakistan in
    Bangalore, the team members were not able to show their faces to people
    and they chose not to go in public and rather just pack up in hotel

    Ganguly could not resist for too long to be in hotel and not
    able to go out shopping and have fun. So he disguises himself as a
    Sardar and goes out. he meets a woman at the exit of the hotel who
    greets him “Hi Saurav !”

    Surprised for having been caught he comes back and makes himself up as
    a Muslim woman – in Burkha etc and goes out. Yet same again – the
    same woman greets him “Hi Saurav!”.

    Ganguly comes back determined to give it yet another try with the make
    up of a Hippie wig and shorts etc. All in vain – the same lady catches
    him again and greets him “Hi Saurav!”.

    Bewildered by now, he could not help asking, “How did you recognize

    The lady replied – “I am Laxman!”
    – Best Seller by Ganguly: Back to the Pavillion in 2 minutes

    – Shoiab Akhtar admits Ganguly is faster and quicker than him. “I haven’t seen any one get out so fast. Man, I envy his speed. I am quick but he is quickest.”, he says. “I think I should now cut my run up short when I bowl to him. Or else, he might be gone when I am half way thru my run up.”

    – Narain Karthikeyan to get some tips on Speed from Ganguly. His sponsorers have asked him to talk to the Prince of Kolkotta. They are also planning to endorse Ganguly.

    – Dinesh Karthick confesses that his skills in getting ready and padded have improved a lot. As soon as Ganguly goes to bat, I know there is very little time in getting ready. “I must have broken world records a few times in this series” , says the Indian dimunitive wicketkeeper.

    – Q: Any Guesses which is Ganguly’s favorite movie?
    A:Gone in 60 seconds.

    – Railways keen on Ganguly: Atleast we’ll be having someone who comes (back) before time. This will help them improve the image with the Indian public.

    – Q: Which was the hottest place in B’lore Chinnaswami Stadium for the past few days?
    A: The seat Ganguly was sitting in while in the Pavillion.

    – Ganguly to donate all his bats to charity. “I don’t require a bat nowadays”, said the Indian southpaw.

    Well I’ll bet your going to be stirring for a long time, Ganguly is going to be back with full force. Only in India do people write off their own team and team members. You wouldn’t see Ponting have such jokes imposed on him when he got an average of 24 during the year 2004. Only Ganguly gets this special treatment, for being India’s winningest captain, for being the person as captain to score the highest amount of runs in one innings against Australia in Australia, for being one of only 22 with an average over 40 in both forms of the game. Yes, I am a fan and its high time people respected our captain. Sure he hasn’t been in peak form with the bat this series, but he was India’s second most consistent last year with average of 46.7 and this is the first series this year. Give the man a break, perhaps he may repay you.

    No Venkat. It is not just Ganguly, or Cricketers in general. Any Celebrity in India, if achieved a small thing, the media blows it up, and portrays them as the Rising Star – The Future of tomorrow. And if he or she goofs it up, they are fried in the filthy oil of criticism. You dont find Sania Mirza in papers anymore as you saw, a few weeks back. There were also cartoons of Ashutosh Gowarikar, when he lost the Oscar. Life in India, is just a lil different.
