News Channels and sms..

In India these days the hottest business in Media are the news channels.Topping the list is Prannoy Roy's NDTV and closedly followed by the India Today group's AAJ TAK and Headlines today.There are some 7 popular news channels and one thing u find common in them is the interaction with the viewers through sms-Short Messaging Service.They use sms for several purposes such as voting,viewer feedback,latest news n scores etc.Off late one use of sms by these channels is worth mention.Telecasting messages from People who need to contact their family/friends but unable to do so on their scrolling newsbar.And India being hit by natural disasters more often nowadays say the Tsunami or these Mumbai rains this system is being put to use.But whether this service is effectively used and is helpful to people or not is not known.But i doubt its effectiveness coz both parties(the sender and the intended recepient) have to watch that particular news channel to know the news.Neways ,if it helps then fine.

Go Aussie Go

Australia continued their supremacy on the Ashes with a fantastic 239 run win over the arch rivals -poms.Pietersen stood tall among the ruins but again that was kinda expected with the form hes in and the capitulation of the rest of the team was expected as well considering the professionalism that this aussie team is known for.
India should learn from this aussie team ,how to win from advantageous positions.Greg Chappell the man in charge should be well versed in this and should in turn inculcate it into the men in blue.Hope things get better for India in the tri series in Sri lanka where a pathetic series is underway.windies with not even a'A' side struggling under the hands of murali.Well cant help it.Hope India puts up a better performance in the forthcoming tri series.

Sahara -English masala flick

No logic - sheer fun-this is what the movie "Sahara" is all about.The actors Matthew McConaughey, Penelope cruz and Steve Zahn have done their job fine.There are a few missing links here and there.who cares just two hours of adventure guranteed.The cinematography showcasing the Sahara desert and the Niger river is great.The Stunts are also good and the boat stunt(Panama) in particular was good.

The Aussies Just took a small break

The Aussies are back and in style led by none other than the brilliant "Gilly".he struck a swash buckling century and they reached home with 15 overs to spare.Though deprived of cricket action at the CAS stricken Chennai i still follow it in newspaper and the net.Waiting for the launch of the TATA -STAR TV direct to home venture "T-Sky".Hopefully it is a good offer for the audience.
