This week so far…

There have been quite a few things happening this week – in my personal and professional life and also happenings worldwide.

My wife is all set to join a new job with a new profile. She has done a lot well in her previous company and has beautifully molded herself into this ITES industry. It was not easy for her to leave her Nursing career in between and join ITES and by far, she has done wonders. I have seen her closely these months and I can see the difference in her and her outlook. I am happy that she could adapt to this environment and adapt it with flying colors. I am proud of her, as always.

Well, there is an indication of a change in my profile too. I got to know just today. I am not sure what the change will mean or how will it be executed, but a change is a must and is due in some one month’s time now. I am open to it, as I have not much to look out for. What God does is for best and hope only the best will happen. Fingers crossed!

Did you see how the New Zealand tour of India launched? Well, the Indian team could not win the opening T20 encounter and was beaten comprehensibly by the black hats, the kiwis. The thing I wanted to mention was the first three balls faced by Virendra Sehwag. All of those were hit out of the ground for massive sixes. The ground was small, no doubt and the kiwis could take a better advantage of that, but in spite of that, those three shots and the one later from Viru were well into the crowd. The new Indian jersey (outfit) was impressive; however, I am unsure if they have designed separate attires for the T20 and ODI versions of the game. Lets see, as the ODI series starts.

And then, the revolution/mutiny in Bangladesh! It was devastating for the country, no doubt, but it was alarming for the Indian states that share their borders with Bangladesh. The BDR (Bangladesh Rifles) broke into an uprising against the Bangladesh Army and the Government as a whole on basis of their inequalities. I was watching the speech of the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today in Bangla aired live by Times Now. She was pleading to the BDR personnel to surrender and go back to their barracks and she did not fail to threaten to take stronger measures if it continues. It will not continue, for sure as they would not be able to carry on with the same. The only thing that I’m concerned and that my father mentioned too, is that a few people (both civilians and army men) died of no reason as such! India should be alarmed, for Bangladesh has never really appreciated Indian presence in their fight for independence and during the ‘Bhasha Andolon’ (fight for language – Bangla as their National Language). Rather, the country and its citizens have mostly been threatening India and causing direct and indirect harm. It has to be a time when India get alarmed of Bangladesh’s political situation at present.

An eventful week so far, and we still have two more days to go. There have been a few more incidences that were of importance, like that Turkish aero plane crashing and getting into three pieces and Obama’s recent speech on unemployment and world economy. He’s trying a thing too many, I feel and that reduces his chances to triumph on all these issues; however, I wish him all the best, for his success is related to almost all sections of life in this world! BOL, President BO.

Did you get to know about the economic condition of Zimbabwe? Well, will post about it, if I feel like in some time. Just to tell you a prelude of that, three eggs are costing 100 Million Zimbabwean Dollars it seems!! Relax…
We can still buy an egg in India for (INR) 2.5 Rupees :)
