Jinxed and cursed

I don't know why? but fate do have an unfortunate habit of playing with me..Yes, whenever I studied (@Twisted and Vijay:this is during my school days..so Plz don't gasp) for a test that would be cancelled and whenever I was unprepared, I would be told off for not getting good marks.And this happened year in, year out..

I believed that jinx was broken when I joined the college, but today when I looked back, I was astonished to discover, that I have never studied during my coll days... so, I never had the oppurtunity to test, whether it was still working or not.Today nature offered me, what I consider a little proof, that it's still working.I got a call from a prestigious college from Coimbatore for my M.B.A. So, I came all the way from Madras to Coimbatore to attend the interview.I was so desperate to make it to that college and in that way to clear my abysmal track record in the personal interview. I even got up at 5'o clock for the first time in my life to refresh(???) my so called subject knowledge..I studied so hard that I took notes from internet and studied it for hours.But fate had other ideas..It played the same old trick, which I was very well acquainted with.

May it be January,
Or it be February:
I still am mandatory.
May it be monastery,
Or it be mortuary:
I follow till gravery.
May it be supplementary,
Or it be subsidiary:
I am a nation's Beriberi.
I might be stationery,
Or even be slippery:
I am yet slavery.
For all those who miscarry:
I am none other than Bribery!

Man Utd..Never Say Die.

Manchester United always have a habit of making things difficult for themselves.
Todays game was no different, With 1-0 up at old trafford, we let 2 goals, thanks to our shaky defence and our Captain Neville's absymal marking...Villa was taking the game away from us and with it our title hopes too.!!In the 60th minute, Man Utd Manager Sir Alex Ferguson decided to freshen things up and introduced a 17 year old named Macheda, in place of Nani, which everyone thought was a very huge gamble to make.

80 minutes gone and the game was still 2-1 in favour of villa.
In the 81st minute 'Cristiano Ronaldo' equalised with a wonderful left foot srike from 20 yards, which really brought back us into the game....
The Match was now being played from End To End..With the both teams gunning for a win, the official signalled 5 minutes of injury time..The injury time was greeted by a heavy uproar by the fans of Red Devils, but it was nothing compared to the deafening noise which pierced the Old Trafford Ceiling when the 17 year young kid, 'Kiko Macheda' found the back of the net right in the 93rd minute, which was virtually the last kick of the match..
History is made! and another star is born at Old Trafford..
Man utd's never say die attitude does it again against villa, right from the Jaws of defeat to victory... we won the match thanks to Never Say Die attitude that was imbibed in us and in Our Gaffer, SAF who trusted young talents even in this crucial match...As an arsenal fan put it.."As much as it hurts me to say this, man utd today showed exactly why they deserve to be epl champions and why they are the defending champions. when fergie sent on that kid Macheda, I thought- that's it he's run out of options!!but I was wrong.. Hell wrong.I really wonder where they get the scripts like that"!

If you are a United fan, Sing along to this great tune and share your happiness..!
