Sleepin surfin..................

Sports has always been a part of my life. these days it has been limited to just catching up on the news rather than sweating out outdoors (lazy lazy me!). Last year Roger Federer came along as a true champion. The domination reminded of pistol pete , perhaps more than the seven time wimbledon winner.Three Grand Slams and the season ending Masters was no mean feat. But then I hate monopoly, like Australians butchering other nations in cricket, Schumacher's Ferrari whizzing past others in F-1 or for that sake Bill Gates operating system or even Rupert Murdoch's media empire. So this article comes as a breath of fresh air. Hopefully these guys will test Roger more stringently in this year. But this year definately belongs to the Swiss.

The richest Briton(I have my own doubts to dub him British) , Mittal has set his feet on China. In the $314 million deal , he has finally entered the world's fastest and robustly growing economy. I mean it was always in the offing as China despite being the largest producer is also the biggest importer as demonic pace of construction frenzy is consuming steel at a mind-blowing rate. So Laxmi ditches India again and enters China first. Maybe one day he will be investing in india too. I mean we are better governed than the east European countries, but then I am a stupid moron and he knows the game better....................

Now this news is music to the ears. India among the top ten tourist destinations????. I am perplexed. Are the people out of their mind!! We have less tourists than Hong-Kong and imagine the potential. I just hope Renuka Chowdhary is also reading (maybe people in New Delhi only read and snooze).

Days after NDTV announced launching its business channel Profit, the battle is hottening up with CNBC-TV18 also launching Awaaz. It will be a hindi speaking channel , so that common people can understand the intricities of business in a more simple way. With economy booming (or is it actually??) , I guess the race for business channels is also becoming fierce.


And lastly an intresting angle to pro-football in America. The whole business aspects of the hugely popular and profitable game from the masters. Treat for sure.........

A lesson for all those high- enthu junta..................Be in limits. Apple has filed a lawsuit against a 19 year old Harvad student for leaking company secrets on his own website. Investigative journalism (for want of appropriate word) at its worst..................
