Back in Blogosphere

It's been a while since I posted anything anywhere. It was one of those times when you have a few things to take care of, and coincidentally manage to find ready excuses not to make the effort. Like not having a broadband connection at home, as if that has ever stopped anyone from blogging (in the office). One of those times when you are more content reading more than posting. God knows there are a few good blogs out there, and scrolling through comments can at times be somewhat addictive. On the odd occasion it can even be educational if the 'commenters' know their stuff (in fact, that's an understatement). Plenty of things have happened in the meantime - India's convincing win in the one-day series in Pakistan, Australia's VB series triumph (yawn), Barcelona trumping arch rivals Chelsea and the whole winter olympics, where in fact, India had four entrants this time. But the most important moment may have been courtesy of a 47-year old athlete - John McEnroe winning a doubles title with Jonas Bjorkman. McEnroe is simply the most gifted tennis player of his generation - may be more - certainly the most talented I have seen. But more importantly, he enjoys the game. Watching people like Pete Sampras play (one can say the same about Rahul Dravid), as much as one admired him, it was easy to forget why we took to a sport in the first place. It should be all about having fun, first and foremost. - NK
