Gold, India, Indians, London, North Korea, Olympics, UK
This Johnny foreigner did enjoy the olympic’s opening ceremony. Here are few of the things which caught my eye
1. Guard of Honour provided for the flame by workers who made the olympic park.
2. The olympic flame not being lit by some big shot but by junior athletes.
3 NHS full-time staff being made star of the show.
The underlying theme for me was that small matters. This was about the “Small” person.
I suspect India will win two golds both in boxing ( A big thing for us if you forget our size). Mary Kom from the small north-east will come back home with a gold along with one of the boys from Haryana’s Villages. The small theme continues
The biggest news for me in this olympics so far was a North Korean winning a bronze in weightlifting. She comes from a small derided country.
Ah Olympic Romanticism

England, Funny Picture, Humour, LOL, Riots, UK
I was just checking some of the photographs i have saved from various news sources and came across this interesting one.
I was in England during the riots of 2011. Luckily i lived in the polite part of that country i.e. Yorkshire. We did not see any riots in Leeds. But i did take some interest in saving some photographs from different news sources. This captured ,in a way, something which i loved about that country – Their love of Queuing.
