Olympics 2012

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

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

Time to make castration a public policy ?


Here are some of the headlines which caught my eyes in the past one week

a) A schoolgirl was molested in Assam,India.

b) A group of men in Derbyshire,England were paying girls, residing in a Home, for sex i.e grooming them.

c) A group of Mexicans raided a christian camp and raped a few girls there.

Obviously some men don’t have the balls to have proper balls. So should they retain their balls when they have committed such crimes?
