Quite elementary, my dear readers !

Today was one of those days which I fear the most. It was a day of unnecessary waiting for a 15 minute appointment with my doctor for a routine checkup.

L14B

অনেকদিন পর লিখতে গেলে প্রথমে মনে হয় কি নিয়ে লিখি এইবার। কিন্তু হঠাৎ করে যদি আলোচনার বিষয় মাথায় এসে যায় - তাহলে আধ্যেক চাপ কমে যায়। আমার এই চাপটা থাকতো, যদি না সেদিন রাস্তায় কাকে বলতে শুনলাম L14B বাসের কথা বলতে। সঙ্গে সঙ্গে মনে পরে গেল এক ঘটনা - সেটাই লিখছি এখন। L14B বলে একটা… Continue reading L14B

The donkeys and the monkeys

In the cricketing world, a controversy has been again created by Nasser Hussain by describing some of the Indian fielders as donkeys on the field.
