IPL – Indian Premier League goes out of India. You do not need to be a cricket fan to follow this news as it is every where. I am literally out raged with this news can you think suddenly British (Barclay) premiership moves to Spain as cold winter stormed as swapped across Britain. Mr.Lalit Modi is a big favorite be it media or those franchisee owners but certainly things will be different after this summer. I really can not believe IPL can survive solely on TV. There is a bigger eco-system which goes around IPL be it parking or those support members (in hundreds) for each team. And surely there will not be any cheerleaders any more as there will not be any spectators. How they are going to manage in cold un-predictable month of April where you get sudden blizzards in UK. If TV works so well I am sure American sports might had exported to other parts of the world by now be it NBA,NFL or NHL. It is also mostly watched by TV but there is a eco-system around the whole and you find TV serials to movies about the same. Can you believe Only wish be this IPL 2.o becomes so flop and the franchisee-owners makes huge loses so that they can come down to ground from their chartered flights. Last summer they poured huge sum thinking they will recover someday soon but with this development I am not sure who soon.

Viewing Singapore through a lens of mother of 22 months old baby was not fun all the time but enjoyed our stay there for 9 days. Actually this journey is because of Santanu who went almost every year after returning to India. Each time after his official trip he use to complain about his loneliness and etc. So this time we made sure to accompany him. But what a luck! he was damn busy in his office.

Officially it is over… ten month long journey came to an end. There were two exams and one submission before pulling the final curtain by November end.
