Patience is a virtue?

People think that most of us (Indians) are a little eccentric and a little off our heads. I feel that we are a bunch of guys who are walking the tight rope between being a genius and completely crazy. But the Indian auto rickshaw guys are unique species altogether! Check this guy out... I just couldn't resist and had to take his picture to share it with you guys.

For those who are not Hindi speaking... instead of it being "sabar karo" which would mean be patient it says “Sabar ka lo” which literally means take patiences' or better still screw patience. And to top it he has his name mentioned right below “Pagal” meaning crazy! GAWD!! Can't stop laughing. Atleast he got his name right. :D

Ricky Po(i)nting in a new direction - A EXCLUSIVE!

I was in Kolkata a few days ago and was hoping to squeeze sometime out and catch the Twenty20 action at the Eden's. But like a regular journalist's holiday this trip was super stressful. I kept shuffling between office work, over-friendly friends and completely crazy relatives. All of which kept me completely occupied from early morning to post mid-night.

One of my friend (Babu bhai) invited me to accompany him for a TV commercial shoot in Kolkata. I tagged along – as if I had an option. We reached the location and I was expecting a sad, local model trying hard to look cool. But I was stunned to see Kolkata Knights' pride, controversy king RICKY PONTING! Nope, he wasn't driving a square drive but he was riding a Suzuki Hayabusa. I placed my eyeballs back in my skull. Apparently he is the brand ambassador of Valvoline lubs and he was shooting for their new TVC. A good way to make some extra buck while (not) performing in the IPL. Hee hee heh...naughty me.

The new ad will feature him riding the sexy Busa (owned by Babu bhai) and looking for an address, which perhaps is his ancestral house. He finally finds it and enters to find a vintage bike – probably a Norton, which starts at just one go... reason?? Valvoline lubricant... wah wah... hazoor wah Valvoline kahiye!

Anyway... here's a picture of Ponting baba on the Hayabusa... enjoy!
