Re: who is Maria Sharapova

At first I thought this whole controversy was about her attitude towards Sachin, like Who the heck is he but this is just a genuine response - She doesn't know. I am sure a lot of people in India would know King James or Kobe (not the beef) ?

But here is more - The first link you get when you google for Shivaji rao Gaikwad is the following wiki entry

Rajinikanth (born Shivaji Rao Gaekwad; 12 December 1950) is an Indian film actor, media personality, and cultural icon.[ Born and raised in the Indian city of Bangalore, Rajinikanth struggled as an impoverished child. He began acting in plays while working in the Bangalore Transport Service as a bus conductor. In 1973, he joined the Madras Film Institute to pursue a diploma in acting. Following his debut in K. Balachander's National Film Award-winning Apoorva Raagangal (1975), his acting career commenced with a brief phase of portraying antagonistic characters in Tamil films. After establishing himself as a lead actor in a number of commercially successful films, he became synonymous with the term "superstar" and has since continued to hold a matinee idol status in the popular culture of India. His mannerisms and stylised delivery of dialogue in films contribute to his mass popularity and appeal

By the one more of by the way way ... you didn't list Saina in the list ... hardly any Indians knows her accomplishment either neither.
Looks like sarci you again.

Anyway, for general public info, these are world champions in the respective sports. In fact 3 of them are in billiard and hve won multiple times (Michael Ferreira, Pankaj Advani and Geet Sethi). Michael ferreira was the one who refused an award lower than Gavaskar. Prakash Padukone was the first world cup winner in badminton, but guess less than 1% of his daughter's fans would know him.. The only non world champ but olympic champ is Abhinav Bindra. His gold in 2008 was the first ever Individual gold in olympics for this 1.2 Billion country.

One person i forgot is Vishwanathan Anand. Saina will make it to the list if she wins the world cup. Winning the australian series does not make her a world champ.

Agree with the sentiment, disagree about Prakash Padukone. IMO he should have been the sportsperson to receive the Bharat Ratna (Dhyanchand was before my time). Didn't he win All England Open thrice in a row ?? Gopichand did it after him.

All the fellows listed there should recieve Bharat Ratna along with Dhyan CHand (guess he got Padma Bhushan). Checked on Gopichand. he won the All england, but not the world cup. Actually Padukone won 3 different championships in 3 consecutive years.
Denmark Open in 79, All England in 80 and world cup in 81.

Re: who is Maria Sharapova

Maria sharapova, whatever she be spelled, is a female, an attractive female. Reactions of Sachin s fans probably stupefy the stuffy comments of star female.

All these are far away from the city of Cricket which is named after the insects that roam in it.

Re: who is Maria Sharapova

Saina Sahu ... she won 2 Olympic medals. Hardly any Indian would know her ...

in a country where mother-loving sons-of-nice-women moviestars, cricket players, and corrupt are sucking every penny out of brain-dead worshiper's purses ...



















to survive ... she sells street food at the steps of her home.

Too bad for her. But how is it the fault of any cricketer or movie star? Or any of their brain-dead worshippers'?

Motabhai, where and when did I blame anyone for plight of past and present medal winners?

Last night I went to the temple to hear certified Himalaya Parbat educated Swamiji's pravachans ... impressed by his four white sari clad beautiful female shishyas taking care of all his needs, I dropped 2 rupees in donation box. Do I blame myself or Acharyaji or his 4 ass-wipers?
Am I making sense or being myself again?

Welcome back ...

Don't think she would be selling many gol-gappas. I mean, her whole marketing strategy is wrong. First of all, for a gol-gappa vendor, she does not seem to have any gol-gappas. They seem to be alu-bondas and some sort of puris. If indeed they are gol-gappas then where is the pani If I approached her and asked her for a plate of 6... by the time she unpacks the paani from the plastic bags, my appetite will be lost.

Here are some points she should note,

1. Advertize and present your product correctly.
2. Make yourself presentable too. Some makeup would definitely help. If skin allergies to makeup then just take a bath or wash your face.
3. A stall or hand-cart in a nice crowded street.
4. And why tf call them gol-gappas Who eats gol-gappas? Call them paani-pooris and see them vanish from your plate.
