India and Football


When will India reach the FIFA world cup finals???

An often repeated question in most of the Indian minds for a few decades now. Once in four years, we Indians invariably end up supporting Brazil, though there are a lot of fan following here in India for nations like Argentina, Germany, England, Netherlands, Portugal, France, Italy, Spain etc...

I like your photography and your highest hopes for your teams.

Thanks for your visit to my blog post about the sunflower being wrecked by the squirrels.

I am not going to be able to save the sunflower as we did all we could for it last night and this morning it looks even worse.

Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.
