Hero Worship or why CLT20 saw no visitors!

So tried switching on the CLT20 and all I saw were COMPLETELY empty stadia when no Indian side was playing.

Do we not care when other teams may be playing a quality game of cricket?

Do we like cricket? or do we like Indians playing cricket?

IPL2 had far too many viewers in the stadia, as compared to these crowds. Clearly, we will watch sports only if we know who is playing, and not just if its a good match!

Is it a case of hero worship gone too far?

DUAL SIM Mobiles: What to keep in mind?

Having been the reasonably proud owner of a Fly Circle for the past 10 months, I think its time to share a checklist on must-have things in a DUAL SIM phone:

  • Dual radios - You normally have two SIMs but ONE radio. Consequently, if you are on a long call - you will surely miss calls on the other SIM - your callers will hear "this subscriber is not reachable" messages. But that adds to cost and for most people, ain't happening anytime soon. Onward.
