Difficult me!
You know how sometime you meet with someone on a daily basis and despite how nice they may be, you cannot seem to surpass a mental block about them, about some irascible habit of that person or just some peculiar trait....so you are saying "no it has never happened to me"...
i don't blame you, i am convinced i am a difficult person to be with, so all you people who have been friends with...kudos to you! i am not an easy going person, i tend to get very opinionated about people and then that feeling prevails for sometime till i get over my prejudices and decide it is time to shed the baggage. Or am i like this? i have lived with room-mates in the past and got along well with everyone...for the most time...

i do have a serious character flaw..i am convinced of that...but what i wonder is, am i not as an individual allowed to like a certain people with whom i gel and not the few who get on my nerves...it's human isn't it? i have been told repeatedly by a lot people that i tend to take my feelings for a person a bit too far...and personally...well i would, wouldn't i? it's about me right? and my zone of comfort? if someone breaches that, i am bound to get hackled...is that not true?

if i were a bird with a pen
and no one knew me, i would write a million line
but this name i have and this space, is a fine...

www.indiancricket.despair.com

what is wrong with these people? cant put a bat to a ball? cant throw a ball? the whole team sucks and i have always been an avid fan of indian cricket, in the past whenever they have under performed (that's the term i use) i would still defend them (not that they needed defending). but i have reached a point where i am ready to give up on them and ask them to take a long break from the game. Be it an un-imaginative Sharad Pawar or a lack luster Ian Chappel or the injuries that plague the team or the omni present question of a fifth bowler or a strong pace attack...these are problems that team should take responsibility for and stop treating it as an excuse. I have defended them in the past 3 months, and they needed defending or so i thought, now i've reached the end of my end of the rope.

So i'll wait till the end of the test matches and if they do a good job, then i'll contiue to believe that something can happen the world cup...
