2008 is the year of the Indians.
Ratan Tata has finally unveiled the worlds cheapest car at the auto expo 2008, the pride of India and his dream has finally come true in seeing that every two-wheeler affordable indian will be able to get a all weather proof vehicle to carry his/her family.
Never have I felt so excited all my life to see a product launch, I know the excitement of a product launch since I come from a product company, to see the pride in the people who worked on the product and being congratulated and showered all the appraisal in front of the whole world.. hmm... thats a different feeling, one has to experience that to understand how it feels.
The four-door which can seat four-five people car, due to hit the market later this year at just 100,000 rupees ($A2,835), has a small 33bhp 624cc engine at the rear and is targeted at Indians hoping to trade up to four wheels from a motorcycle.
The Tata Nano - which looks almost exactly like a Smart - has no air conditioning, no electric windows and no power steering for the basic model, although two deluxe models will be on offer.Ratan Tata has proven again that he is not just a dreamer but a doer and shown the whole world that Indians are the best when it comes to commitment and inspite of the prices going high on all accounts of the materials being used in making the car, he has kept his promise to deliver the car as 1 lakh car, and thus making it the worlds cheapest car.
Talking to the huge audience present on the occasion said he said he wanted to make "a safe, affordable and all weather transport -- a people's car, designed to meet all safety standards and emissions laws and accessible to all" and "a car that most people said could not be manufactured at that price."
He also dismissed fears the cheap car would herald more congestion and pollution, arguing the car would be better and far safer than most motorcycles on India's roads.
Hats off to each and every one who worked on this project and made this dream come true, its an ecstatic feeling which will last long enough :).

What a weekend it has been, for once Indian cricket's stand has been vindicated and yes it feels ecstatic that 'Yes' people do listen to us.
If Symonds has complained against Harbhajan, its not the first time, why shouldn't ICC have a test done against Symonds to check if he suffers from inferiority complex, because he is only one who seems to have a problem, he likes to say things and when he gets it back he cannot digest it...... clearly a case for a psychiatrist.
Kudos to BCCI for standing up for the team and acting in the right manner and pulling the right chords for the first time.
ICC by agreeing to almost all the issues raised by BCCI has accepted that there has been mistakes done and mostly against India at Sydney, whether people call it BCCI's money clout that has made this possible, for me its a win for the right cause and from now on this would ensure that the game would be played in a fair manner.
A special thanks to the media which ensured that this sydney fiasco remained their respective top stories and thus putting pressure on ICC.
'INDIA cannot be ignored, if they do, then ultimately cricket would be'

If certain wrong things that have happened which cost INDIA the match, Yes, we definitely would have won this match comprehensively, if for the those two gentlemen in white coats not used their own brain and instead asked their friend who sits in the cosy AC room and can decide in a more calm way (but many can debate this as the same cool headed 3rd gentleman had lost his cool by not ruling out the man who has the habit to get behind his captain every time someone stares at him or says an 'Hello' and complain to yet another white coated gentlemen)
I feel like a eunuch in a harem, who can only see things happening but cannot do anything, is the Indian team such a toothless tiger that we cannot even make our point, stand up and fight and ask for justice and above all we have our ex-players part of the television crew and cant they suggest what needs to be done, do we have to be the only gentlemen left in this game which has become so competitive that people wouldn't hesitate to play so called mind games by even involving the family members of the opposite team in the pre-match build up.
Its time we should stand up and speak up against the so called racism that is happening to us always by the white coat gentlemen who keep giving us bad decision maybe because they don't like our skin color, thats what I think it is, whom should we complain to - To the ICC, which is nothing but a stuffed toy and not a decision making body, even if it does, its always the sub-continent team which is found to be the guilty one, something I still haven't been able to fathom.
Should we just call the tour off and come back or stay back and fight the battle which anyway we know which way it is going, not because we are not playing good, its something which is beyond our control and it is bound to happen again and all we can do is listen to the commentators that finally 'Test cricket won, even though one team got decisions going against it' what a crap thing to say, why cant that team be Australia?, can someone answer me.
Australia are cry babies when it comes to losing, they don't loose fairly like all other teams, they bring up all issues which are irrelevant to cricket to ensure that they end up on the podium, if we take a look at the number of complaints that has gone from a single team to the match referee, it has to be Australia and most of those times have been when they are about to loose and realize that they do not have a winning edge.
I really do not know when I would stop getting this feeling of being a eunuch in a harem but instead be a hunk in a harem!!!!
