Head on Shoulders, Feet on Earth


I watch Indian cricket these days thanks to youngsters like Sreesanth and Munaf Patel.

The media somehow focused more on Munaf than Sreesanth. I was waiting for this moment and finally The Hindu wrote about him today.

Here are some details about Sreesanth.

22 Years

Mom's ( His mentor) words advice for him

Nivedita ( Actress )

Madhu Balakrishnan ( Play back Singer )

NV sir thank you kindly again for your much-valued comments on my latest posts !!

Music sure is the biggest ocean in the world spanning umpteen genres...

My collections is just a tiny drop on a wave washed rock on a remote island thats it....nothing out of proportion....BUT I LIKE IT as much as you do :) I COULD NEVER STAND RAP !!!...Thats my only problem !!!

Don't you worry sir I will introduce you to my kind of music with class acts over the ensuing days one at a time. I am sure you would like them all. It takes coupls listens before you start liking them and is worth the try in my experience !

All the way from Sunny California ...well its about time you saw the real Sunny side of life my friend...

You may mail me @ I would be more than just glad to take you thru my list of favorite bands/performers spanning multiple genres...They are all unique in their own way :)

Try to look for these acts at any used record exchange store in ur area...You would get better deals and albums to pick from and almost at rock bottom price for a good quality CD if you are a little more patient to do some digging down the stacks...!!! GOODLUCK !! HAVE FUNTIME LISTENING TO UR FAVORITE MUSIC !!! HAVE A NICE NIGHT AND A GREAT WEEK AHEAD ...PEACE ALWAYS !!

Nice to read about this young lion from God's own country....I remember my math teacher in 10 Standard saying....Mutton heads my 5 year old son is better than you at math for his irate back bencher yelled....don't worry sir our sons will be better than yours someday.....Now he got thrahed royally thats another story...but the whole class erupted in a roar of laughter we all still joke about it even now....Youngsters Rule !!!! Nice to know this boy has a star cast family....good for him !! but i guess he counts on GOD and his own mettle to earn his spot in a highly competetive sport !! Wish him Goodluck !

Looks like a good find for the team. He has the fire-power and the killer instinct that is sometimes lacking in the veterans.

Thanks to Greg C., Indian cricket is seeing lot of youngsters get an opportunity.

Sreesanth is doing well and hopefully will gain consistency through experience. But with the competition being so intense, he has to prove his mettle fast..

Vinesh said...

Sreesanth is Madhu Balakrishnan's relative!!

Trivia of the week!!

Ram.C said...

For me also, it was a news... that Sreesanth & MB are related... thankz.

i have not seen munaf patel bowl but sreeshant from what i've seen is really impressive.
he has a very good action and bowls a consistent line and length.
i think he shud be promoted more and guys like ajit agarkar, who has been given more chances than anyone cud count on shud be shown the door!

Sreesanth is doing well bt the problem with him is the energy and speed in his blood
if he tries to control his rudeness lo some extent no dout he will be in the top 10 bowlers of the world
