India Diaries – 4th Umpire

During the course of the cricket match telecast match between India and Sri Lanka, they have this program called 4th Umpire, where there is a lady (don’t know the name) who talks with Mohinder Amarnath and Kris Srikanth on the game, the strategies, the policies, the decisions etc. Although these are good things to discuss, I believe that you can get all this information in TVs, magazines, web sites etc. It is ok to discuss it once in a while but the discussions are always stereotype and some of the questions are plain stupid. For example, what is the use of asking “Mohinder, do you think that SL will want to win this Test?”!!! The answer is so obvious – any team, any game, any part of the world will want to win ALWAYS! – whether they are 1-0 up or 10-0 up, they will still want to win. So, it is imperative that SL will be wanting to win this game. So, it is no point asking this question just to fill up the time and torture the audience. There are so facets to a cricketing game how should Murali bowl to the right handers, why does Yuvraj struggle against spin, why does Gambhir always get out LBW etc. Answers to these questions will only help the audience to understand the game better and also make them more interested in it and groom the youngsters better so that they become better cricketers in their lives.

Wish they did something about the quality of this program.

    Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

    Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product’s durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano’s super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

    The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

    We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

  3. Oh my God! You are getting a lot of spams. The first one here is the biggest spam I have ever seen!!!!

    Let me tell you one thing: – The lady you were referring to was Anjum Chopra, the ex-Captain of the Indian women’s cricket team. She still plays for the country. Despite those foolish questions, she was very wise in her observations on most occasions and even got some compliments for it from the others in the panel.

  4. I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
    the indexes easily.

    Take a look at


  5. I have come accross Anjum Chopra’s profile on cricinfo and at 29 shes still got what it takes to be the leader in the Indian side. If not the most senior person in the side. I really don’t know at what age woman retire from cricket. Here in SA we do not follow this form of the game. Being an Indian myself, i was facinated at the way the Indian woman played the game, Indian woman are known to excel hockey. Anjum should actully be reconsidered for Captaincy.

  6. Peace people

    We love you
