First things first. Apologies to my regular readers for not being able to update my blog too often. I owe you guys an explanation and hence this post. I also regret not being able to help my entrance-exam traffic this year as much as I’ve done in the past years. I’ll try to be more regular with my blog updates from now. ( Yes I know this is not the first time I’ve said this 😛 )

My last post dates back to January which was a very ordinary month. Just the usual college life, early morning lectures, which for a change, I did manage to attend. Then came the very busy month of February. I spent most of my time working either for Technosearch and Maffick 2011 or Excelsior 2011, the college magazine. The magazine was a big success. You can download an e-copy if you haven’t checked it out yet. March was the month when life started getting easier. After Techo-Maffick ’11 was over, the focus shifted completely to Excelsior ’11. Being involved in designing it was a great experience. It was fun working with my buddy Anupum Pant who also happened to be the Chief Designer. Learnt quite a lot of new stuff in Corel Draw. March was also the month when I actually had to study a bit too 😛 . Moving on to the release of Excelsior ’11 that was early in the month of April. Along with it came the realisation that the magazines are heavier than they look, specially when they are in bundles of 25. The month of April also meant that it was exam time. I completed my minor project on Building a home security surveillance system using the Lego Mindstorms NXT successfully but making the project report and getting it printed turned out to be a big PITA. The project coordinator literally made us work (for her) for extra credits; result to be out soon, hope it pays off. My exams and practicals were over in the first week of May and I’ve been in Delhi for last 12 days or so. I’ll be here till the end of June before the commencement of my final year in college.

That’s all about what I’ve been up to for the past few months. Now, I’ll get to what I’m into right now. This weekend seems to have a lot of sporting events lined up. I’ve been following the 4th edition of the Indian Premier League and am supporting the Mumbai Indians as always. They have a big match tomorrow against RCB. Hope they manage to pull off a victory. I’ve also been following the French Open. Hope to see another Federer-Nadal final resulting in favour of Federer. I’ve been following Formula 1 a lot more ever since Michael Schumacher has come back from retirement. Sadly he doesn’t have a car good enough to support his potential and he hasn’t been in performing that well. Hope to see a better performance in the Monaco Grand Prix scheduled for this weekend. Needless to say the Indian in me supports Narain Karthikeyan too but again wish he had a better car to drive. Just to add to the list of sporting events this weekend, the UEFA Champions League final is also a big event to look forward too. I’m not much of a fan but I’ll be supporting Barcelona for the final.

It feels good to rediscover the joy of blogging after a long break. It can be tough to get your mind working at times but once you get past that stage, its pure joy. I could go on and on about anything and everything and make this post look like it would never end but its getting really late so I should get some sleep now.

Roger Federer truly deserves the title-‘Mr. Perfect Serve’.His match against Lopez in the US Open proved this.After losing the first set to Lopez,he won the rest of the three sets convincingly.After getting his serve broken in the first set,he lost just 10 points on his serve in the next three sets.He also won 32 consecutive serve points.It was to look at the scoreboard to see the points as-15-0,30-0,40-0 and ultimately game.Lopez had no answer to his serve.The final score was 3-6,6-4,6-1,6-4.It was simply great to watch the match.I’m pretty sure that Federer will be the 2007 US Open champion which would make it 4 in a row for him.He will face Andy Roddick in his next match i.e. in the quarter finals.

SUNDAY FOR SPORTS

Sunday, 10 June 2007 was a big day for the world of sports. I’ll discuss everything in chronological order-

Nadal wins French open:Rafeal Nadal won his 3rd consecutive title at Roland Garros by defeating Roger Federer for the third year in a row. In my opinion-Nobody can stop Nadal on clay. Wimbledon is the next grand slam for which I predict a Roger Federer victory.

Asia XI wins the Afro Asian Cup: From the world of tennis we now move to Cricket. The Asia XI won the Afro Asian cup 3-0. They even won the 20-20 international match played before the 3 one day internationals. This was expected as the Asian cricket teams have good talent and better facilities than the African ones.

Hamilton wins Maiden Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton claimed his maiden Grand Prix victory at Montreal, Canada by winning the Canadian Grand Prix. Fernando Alonso could just manage a 7th position after getting a 10 second STOP GO penalty for pit lane violations. Felipe Massa and Giancarlo Fisichella were Black Flagged (Disqualified) for ignoring the red light at the pit lane exit. Kimi Raikkonen finished 5th behind Nick Heidfeld, Alex Wurz and Heikki Kovalainen who qualified 3rd 20th and 19th respectively. The race was a disaster as just 12 drivers managed to finish the race. Robert Kubica broke his leg as he had a dangerous crash into the hairpin. The crash was so severe that his legs were visible as the car had sustained a lot of damage. Have a look at the crash-
