We will not only join the game but try to beat bloggers & twitterites: Darbar Ganguly

This Millennium belongs to you: Darbar Ganguly

Durbar Ganguly, the owner of the millenium post writes in his first editorial  :

…..In this age of bloggers and Twitterites, where the voice of the common man dominates like never before, we will not only join the game but try to beat them. We will prove this is not the end of an era for print journalism. Rather, it is the beginning of something new that will be defined by what we, and our readers and supporters, can learn and become together.

Like the common man, we have no regret or fear that we are not part of the lucky sperm club, just unbounded confidence (perhaps a little misplaced, but we just cannot help ourselves), and an untamable eagerness to get ahead and make our mark and grab every opportunity with both hands. For the ordinary to strain towards the extraordinary. His story is as old as time but like the emerging India, also a new chapter that is full of promise.

Our motto is no half truths, and the full truth must include not only the glamour of the corridors of power, but the grit and grime of the smallest galli and mohalla, the struggle for survival not only in the hurly burly of politics but also in the jungles of Bastar and the blood, sweat and tears shed in the arid fields of rural India. The striving for success not only in the plush highrises of corporate India but also the insatiable hunger to excel and better one’s lot in each slum sprawl that surrounds them.

Cricket is like a soap opera

Siddhartha Vaidyanathan‘s (http://sidveeblogs.wordpress.com/ & former Assitant Editor Cricinfo) take on Cricket, IPL et al:

What is it about Cricket that we all get hooked to?

It’s like a soap opera. It’s also like reality TV. And it’s (mostly) unscripted.

Cricket ka Karmayudh- IPL: 

It’s a bit too early to say whether the negatives outweigh the positives. The IPL is not going anywhere. It’s here to stay. 

Post Ganguly – DravidLaxman – Tendulkar era: 

I don’t think there is going to be any player appearing out of thin air. The core group remains Kohli, Pujara, Rohit, Raina, Rahane, Mukund. Sehwag and Gambhir will be around. And Yuvraj too.

About Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar

He takes every practice session seriously. He is completely devoted to the game. He’s humble. These are rare qualities, especially among extraordinarily successful people.

Missing consistency in Indian plays: 

You need players who can be unpredictable. If every player was consistent, this would be a boring game. I love Sehwag’s unpredictability. It’s what makes him score 219 on one day and 0 the next.

Assembly of a commentary team from Twitter: 

I would sure like to see many of these Twitter folk talk about cricket in a pub. The way they argue, there may be blood.

In Siddhartha Vaidyanathan’s dream team God of Cricket Sachin is rested. Others includes, Sehwag,  Jayasuriya, Laxman, Lara, Mark Waugh, Carl Hooper, Gilchrist, Wasim, Ambrose, Shane Bond &  Warne .
