But we cannot sit here and blast comments on these players. It would be really unjust on saying that the traffic police is taking bribes if the SP is taking lakhs. If the BCCI president, Mr.Sharad Pawar is taking huge bribes and destroying cricket, what can you say about the players. If the IPL is flooded with corporates fixing matches and players playing for its economic value alone, what is the role of the spectator? Football, olympics, tennis have all grown over the years. But cricket has been pampered during these budding years that it has lost much of its charm.
God save cricket!!!!!

The English dictionary describes the meaning of the word bamboozled as to “conceal one's true motives from especially by elaborately feigning good intentions so as to gain an end”. Right from the day I joined this college, I have been trying to learn this art, but unfortunately. I was under the impression that management was all about impressing people to work for you, buy your products which they probably did not want or convince yourself that the end defines the means. Some people may call me a critic. But over the months, I have introspected on these facts and came to a few conclusions which I would like to share with my peers and followers.During my short tenure as a student of business, I was busy searching the internet and learning to make better power point presentations. I would have failed but luckily I learnt that it is better to fail now rather than wait for that white collar assignment in an MNC. It would be unfair on my part to be critical about subjects concerning marketing or finance. But are we really learning business? Do we know what the customer expects from us? I bet, NO. This brings to light an interesting incident in my life. I was attending a lecture when the professor remarked “If I had the time, I would have made a more concise report”. For many of us, preparing a 20 page report takes 2 days and preparing a 10 page report takes 1 day. On the contrary, I would say that preparing a 10 page report would take me 4 days. If we were asked to read a case and summarize it, we could go on all day long describing the different facts and connecting it with the theory we have gulped down over the months. But if we were asked to explain the case in 2-3 lines, I would expect a silent class rolling their eyes all over waiting for somebody to respond.
