Thalaivar made me to come back here to visit my won page after 2 years. Thanks to him. Seen Kabali on 25th July. Never ending fever in some parts of the nation as well as in overseas in this July is none other than is Kabali i think.  No reviews about the film. Because it has been done, enough.  Hype is different from Emotion. Thalaivar did what he wants.. Hats off to him. And congratulations to Ranjith to treat as Kabali as Kabali not as Superstar.

 

 

Henry James

“We work in the dark – we do what we can – we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of the art.” – Henry James.

Henry James, OM (15 April 1843 – 28 February 1916) was an American-born writer, regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He was the son of Henry James, Sr. and the brother of philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James.

 

Sixth sense helped Sachin Tendulkar’s 100th Ton

Very Good point of view from TOI, about Sachin. This opened some thing on me.. might be in every individual. Some thing that we should cope up our mind with body. I love to share this on my blog.

Here is the Article from TOI:

Every individual’s body is different and, therefore, training methods have to be different. What Sachin Tendulkar has achieved, most importantly, is that he has succeeded in creating a balance between what his body needs and what he needs to do to keep his cricket going.

The other thing which is very important from asports medicine point of view is mental toughness. Sachin is mentally very tough. You may be very talented but if you don’t have the mental toughness required at the highest level, it may not work because then there will be occasions when you will easily want to give up, go into depression because of injuries.

Mental toughness has seen Sachin come out of all his injuries – back, shoulder, toe, tennis elbow.Tennis elbow can be very tricky to treat, especially for a batsman who is constantly using his wrist.

Probably that injury was the most difficult for him to overcome. It was the most depressing phase of his career. Anything where the game gets hampered will affect batsman’s proficiency and therefore, I can tell you the injury bothered him the longest.

Thereafter, he has adapted himself well. People used to say Sachin is no longer the same, but he managed to adapt well because he is a great thinker of any game, not just cricket.

He has the gift of, what we call in surgery, sixth sense. Some surgeons have it better than others. Most people thought Sachin wasn’t meant for Twenty20 and he proved all of them wrong.

Another thing is he never ignored his injuries – because ignoring them can lead to bigger threats and force players to underperform. Sachin always knew when to rest his body and that is an area where you can never doubt his commitment. He was never despondent about anything. A negative patient will never give a positive result.

Sachin has always been positive and the results are there for all to see. He has heeded advise coming from professionals, be it me, doctors in his own family (from wife Anjali’s side), the physiotherapists who have been with him. Credit goes to everyone.

One good thing about Sachin is he’s self-disciplined. In many ways, it is comparable to Sunil Gavaskar. Like Sachin, Sunil was also always aware of his abilities and knew what it would take to prolong his career. There would be no late nights, there wouldn’t be parties. Whenever required, they would go on diet control exercise. All these things matter a lot.

I always tell my patients, you have to have body awareness. You must know what exercises are harming you and benefiting you. Sometimes, trainers especially can tend to push you the wrong way and if you are not aware of your body and its limitations, then it can cause injuries.

Sometimes I have heard people say Sachin does not put as much time in the gym as much as he puts on the field. He compensates for lack of gym time by giving it more on the field.

I think there are a couple of reasons for Sachin’s longevity: One, you have to be really blessed to have that kind of longevity. As you know, in any field in life it is the survival of the fittest and for that survival one has to be really blessed.

Secondly, it is not just talent that makes a great individual. You need a body which can cope up with the strain and one has to be aware of your limitations and still excel.

Sometimes you have young athletes who are very talented but they land up with career-threatening injuries. That is why I feel Sachin is blessed in many ways.

He also acknowledges this fact. You’ll see that he is so full of humility. Another thing is self-discipline. You may have everything in the world, including a lot of talent but that won’t last very long. To remain committed and do things with a sense of determination is what eventually matters.

INJURY TIMELINE

After his debut in 1989, Tendulkar soared like a free bird for a decade before injuries started taking their toll. A timeline of his injuries and how he conquered them…

1999: Back injury in Chennai. This was the first major injury in his career and it came during a second innings masterpiece against old foes Pakistan. The heat and humidity caused him to cramp up, yet he almost won the Test with a brilliant 136. It was after this injury that the problems surfaced. The on-the-rise strokes were cut out. Out went the lofted stroke over mid-wicket as well as the whip over mid-wicket. He missed tours to Sharjah and Nairobi.

2001: Injured his toe on the tour to Zimbabwe and missed a Test for the first time. Didn’t travel to Sri Lanka.

The Globe Theatre

 

The Globe Theatre was a theatre in London associated with William Shakespeare. It was built and owned by Lord Chamberlain’s Men in 1599. The Globe was a three-story, open-aired amphitheatre, approximately 30 metres in diameter. The theatre held up to 3,000 spectators. It was used to perform numerous plays, many of those being William Shakespeare’s. On the 29th of June in 1613 the Globe Theatre was destroyed by a fire but was rebuilt in 1614 later to be closed in 1642.

• It was three-story, open-air amphitheatre approximately 100 feet (30 m) in diameter that could house up to 3,000 spectators.

3,000 new words into the English Language

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guys i am surprised by Shakespeare’s work. Searching some other thing from him i found his interesting works.

William Shakespeare is attributed with writing 38 plays, Famous Shakespearean sonnets and 5 other poems and used about 21,000 different words. William Shakespeare is credited by the Oxford English Dictionary with the introduction of nearly 3,000 words into the language. It’s no wonder that expressions from the works of William Shakespeare have become ‘anonymous’ parts of the English language.

I am confused btw Expansion & Deviation of our Thoughts

Are we all expanding our knowladge towards the Unknown or Deveating towards the unwanted.

Life seems to be limited unless we are out of our way.. Sometimes life seems to limitless journey were we might end up in mess or it might be a journey were u might be blessed..

If u were “cursed” or “blessed”   i think its all up to our heart, as MK Gandhi said.

I welcome if you have any other interesting plot on this..  

A post impressionist painter – Vincent Van Gough

A post impressionist painter and one of the most famous artists of all time – Vincent Van Gough.

I came across one of his famous painting “starry night” i was impressed and searched about him. I found some of his words and beautiful art works. I am sharing some of his words here..

“To do good work one must eat well, be well housed, have one’s fling from time to time, smoke one’s pipe, and drink one’s coffee in peace.”

“There is no blue without yellow and without orange.”

“It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to…. The feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.”

“I can’t work without a model. I won’t say I turn my back on nature ruthlessly in order to turn a study into a picture, arranging the colors, enlarging and simplifying; but in the matter of form I am too afraid of departing from the possible and the true.”

“We spend our whole lives in unconscious exercise of the art of expressing our thoughts with the help of words.”

“A good picture is equivalent to a good deed”

“Steve Jobs” the word shook this world this 6th Oct 11

Steve Jobs dies: live blog form -The Telegraph

Steve Jobs, the Apple co-founder and former CEO, has died at the age of 56 after a long and highly public battle with cancer.

Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder:

“People sometimes have goals in life. Steve Jobs exceeded every goal he set himself.”

Paul Allan, co-founder of Microsoft:

“We’ve lost a unique tech pioneer and auteur who knew how to make amazingly great products. Steve fought a long battle against tough odds in a very brave way. He kept doing amazing things in the face of all that adversity. As someone who has had his own medical challenges, I couldn’t help but be encouraged by how he persevered.”

Steve Case, Founder of AOL:

“I feel honored to have known Steve Jobs. He was the most innovative entrepreneur of our generation. His legacy will live on for the ages.”

03:40 Google has added the line “Steve Jobs, 1955 – 2011” to its homepage. The Apple founder’s name links through to the Apple website.

03:31 Here is timeline of key dates in Jobs’ life and work.

03:20 As well as making online tributes, admirers of Jobs have been converging on Apple Stores around the world to pay their respects. Fans have congregated outisde the store on New York’s Fifth Avenue, writing notes on the scaffolding, and a bunch of flowers had been laid outside the Apple Store in Sydney.

Twitter Mattchew03 wrote: “It’s crazy to think about how many people are sharing the news of Steve Jobs’s death using devices he invented.”

Techland posted a quote from Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang saying “Steve was my hero growing up.”

02:55 US President Barack Obama has remembered Jobs as a visionary and great American innovator.

“Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it,” he said in a statement.

02:50 Here’s the view on Jobs’ legacy from inside the electronics industry. Computerworld says Jobs was a man of conviction who left an indelible mark on computing and that the sector will never be the same again.

02:40 The Wall Street Journal has republished Jobs’ well-known 2005 commencement address at Standford University, in which he reflected on life, career and mortality:

Quote “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
