Younis Khan

He is a captain cool for sure. He supports the youngsters and cheers the team. Among the captains of Pakistan team I've seen so far, this guy is different.
An excerpt from his interview with Cricinfo here.

"When I leave, I want to leave behind some bowlers, some batsmen, and a team that can stand for itself, like Steve Waugh did, or Imran Khan did"

I've always wondered how Pakistan is able to produce world class bowlers (fast and spin) all the time.

Cinema Paradiso

Will write a blog on this movie later. This music cast a spell on me. Listen below.


Charlie Chaplin

Nothing special to say about this Genius.In his time, he was well ahead of that. Here is a small boxing clip from his movie "City Lights". This movie (as well some of his others) is my all time favorite.

About this boxing event: Charlie wants to get some money for his lover to pay the house rent. He was forced to enter this boxing event where he is about to fight with a guy. They makes an agreement of 50-50 sharing irrespective of whoever wins. But that guy leaves the place as the cops are behind him. Finally, the organizers arranges another person who is a good boxer. Charlie wants to make agreement but that person says "Winner takes it all". What happens in the fight? See it below.

Must see movies of Charlie Chaplin:
- City Lights
- The Great Dictator
- The Kid
- Pay Day
