Sabine Lisicki!

Today was not particularly a nice day at office. An opportunity to visit South Africa had slipped through my fingers and consequently, having nothing much to do but to mull over whether I had let an opportunity through lack of prosecution whirring my mind, I took refuge at the idiot box. Remembering that WIMBLEDON was on, i switched on STAR SPORTS II and to my utter dismay saw the buffalo playing her shots with her orange shorts showing her amply rounded bottoms.

I hate buffaloes, not because they are dark complexioned- I lost all that moral right when i discovered that I myself was classified as “dark”. But, being dark doesn’t disqualify anyone from calling others dark. Maybe, it is politically incorrect to discriminate anyone based on colour, but being a buffalo is not about colour at all. It is that sluggishness coupled with sturdiness and a bullish belief that one is better than the rest which makes one a BUFFALO.

I believe SERENA WILLIAMS has all those buffalo traits which gives the dark aura of INVINCIBILITY. Serena was playing SABINE LISICKI She was all ELEGANCE and FEMININE. I see no reason for a female to be in skirts if she doesn’t find a reason to be feminine. Muscles and veins may be the outgrowths of tennis practice, but lack of FEMININITY in a female form is terrible lack of soul.

LISICKI was amazing and wore a smile and especially when she saw twice in succession the ball rolling over to her side, Lisicki’s wry smile was refreshing. Lisicki had not lost her soul in the rush to reach the top in women’s tennis. She had the elegance of a swan and bowled me over! When she took the first set against SERENA, i was mightily pleased. When she the third set to the thunderous ovation of the crowd, it was exhilarating.

The match was a proof that one need not lose one’s femininity to come with strong serves or angled shots. It is not about pigging it out and keeping reserve fat to deal with exhausting exigencies in tennis.

What was even more irritating were the painted nails of the buffalo, which caused eyesore in the absence of femininity. But was relieved to see the back of Serena and at least till next July, I don’t have to see Serena in the courts of Wimbledon in Singles’ match.

Richard Krajicek once said about women’s tennis : “I said that 80 percent of the top 100 are fat pigs, but I just over-exaggerated a little bit,” he said. “What I meant to say was that only 75 percent, yes.” and when he was told that Martina Navratilova had not taken to his comment lightly, he said:“Why should she take it personally. She is not in that 20%.”

But in this blog I take no such protection, except for that wise little statement which says, “IF SOMETHING WALKS LIKE A DUCK & QUACKS LIKE ONE ,THEN THAT CREATURE HAS TO BE A DUCK!”

Serena has no elegance not to mention the daintiness some women players have exhibited. Some of the shots she played reminded me of the masculine THANDAVA, with her legs flailing upward in all directions!

Thank God! He spared me of such unsightly tennis!




Colonizing was rampant from the 15th century onwards. What started off as sourcing of produce abroad, ended up as COLONIZATION. To secure the PRODUCE of the land and the labour of the inhabitants of the place, political power became essential. So the traders, shipping company owners, bankers and their ilk supported the STABILITY that the political power brought. So the primary activity persons like the farmer, the weaver and the mason were paid for their produce and labour, whereas the TRADER delivered the produce to the places in demand and made exorbitant profits.

Making profits is a legitimate exercise, but when MONEY accumulates in the hands of the few secondary activity persons and devised all means to keep a tight control on the money in the hands of the PRIMARY ACTIVITY guys, it became a pernicious habit. This led to impoverished circumstances. It is like the seller of sweets who could produce sweets, hold it in his hands, sniff it, see it but can NEVER CONSUME IT. Because if he consumed the sweets, his capital would be lost without returns!!

His own produce became so expensive that he started living off the crumbs of his own produce! That is the ultimate plight of the PRIMARY WORKER. This is true in many countries, where they would not be able to pay for the goods they produce- because they do not have the purchasing power to buy it. For example, a fisherman may be able to catch an expensive fish like seer (king fish), but he would rather sell it and make money than eat it. A goldsmith may fashion the best jewelery but he cannot afford to keep it for adorning his wife. The only exception is the FLOWER GIRL who could wear some, before selling flowers to others. The FLOWER SELLER is the only breed that partakes in her own produce.

The age of colonization had ravaged nations, as their natural growth rate had been stunted by the rapacity of the colonizing nations. The colonization in the traditional sense had ended. But a new method of colonization is dawning on humanity. That is what makes the US President Obama make the statement, ” SAY NO TO BANGALORE AND YES TO BUFFALO“.

The developed nations had been used to plundering the weaker nations and making secondary rules to ensure that they are kept tied under a relentless hierarchy within an iron cast structure. With the fall of the old order and in the rising of the NEW, anxiety  is being spread. In all fairness, the USA had not indulged in blatant colonization like the Europeans. The USA had only built a security wall around themselves thru their PATRONIZING attitude with its neighbours.

But with the advent of cheap labour, the populous countries have galvanized themselves into skill building, sourcing the produce for better paying markets, highly skilled personnel trained to meet specific high end solutions and participating in International conventions and treaties  even before they crystallize into global agendas. This has upset the “Developed Nations”, merely because they would not be able to match the numbers so galvanized into purposive action.

This is where BANGALORE comes in and BUFFALO goes out. Bangalore attracts the brainy Tamilian, the feisty Northern Indian, the moneyed Telugu, the marketing savvy Malayali, the Pushy Bihari, the Politically savvy Uttar Pradeshi and the Academically inclined Bengali, which becomes a pan-Indian flavour  finely tuned to  cater to the global needs.  Neither does Buffalo (synecdoche) have the variety nor the high-skills to match this Pan-Indian flavour.
