Resisting the change

I resist changes... Though changes are the way of life. Evolution and improvement are the side-effects of change... I know changes are mostly for the good but dont know why I resist... may be the tamil saying - "The known devil is better than an unknown god", haunts me
In the past 8 months, I have worked under 4 Managers - dont know why they are running away from me... And I have been under the mental pressure of the possible lay-off!!!
Hopefully & Probably now I am mentally much stronger to take on this world with confidence and enthusism

Business of sports

Sachin is respected as God, at best what can he do? Belt the leather ball some 60- 70 yards with his willow. But we all love that act more than a farmer who ploughs to make food for human-kind. He gets paid a megre amount for his work but these sporting heroes, film-heros etc who dont provide us with anything essential but just the pleasure gets a lumpsum

But What is the use of sports? Why are we attracted to that? What gives it this much of importance? ? ?
sports gets the importance mainly because its not that important!!!
We can loose but we are not ready to loose in reality... We can defeat somebody to get the pleasure... We can proove that we are the best...best in what? skill to fight for the control of a ball.. In essence it gives a way to shed the mental pressure... We learn to give less importance to the things that bothers us and get a free, lighter mind. The advantage of physical fitness is infact a positive side-effect...

In my office we had the annual sports meet last weekend and it was total fun... And the cricket tournament is in progress... It proved to me as an oppurtunity to know the people around me in the work-place and now I feel to have more friends around me... sports act as a catalyst in the teaming process

My hero is changing track

Valentino Rossi is planning and trying to break into the F1... May be coz of the F1's strategies to pull crowd as it is loosing out because of new rules, schumie's fall, A1 etc I wish all success for Rossi with the additional wheels
