srini

there’s this boy who i may have mentioned before (classmate from 3rd grade) who has been on my mind. we met after 11 years and had an amazing night where we spilled story after story to each other. i might have developed feelings for him but that didn’t work out and we drifted apart. a couple of weeks back we began texting again. it’s been quite nice actually. i don’t know if there is anything at all between us. i have been very wrong about these kinds of things in the past so it’s best that i don’t make any kind of assumptions. but i must say that i like how it feels. he is funny and sweet and a regular boy. he is my age and he is the kind of guy that is a good friend to someone. i don’t know how to explain this. he’s not the college football captain who’s a pompous asshole. but he’s normal. i like normal people. they are real and there’s no bullshit. unpretentious and they are there for you.

i don’t know much about him but i do know that he has been successful in ending my numbness. it’s been a year since my ex left and i’ve had a long time to do the things i want to do. i met three other boys, none of whom were interesting enough to even make me want to look back at them. i smile when i receive a text from him and it’s nice to know that i’m capable of feeling something again, apart from being horny. he isn’t in a place where he’s going to get into a relationship because he just got out of one. i don’t think i even expect anything of that sort to even happen. i know this, because i have this gut feeling that it’s going to be a while before i get into a relationship again. and Srini (that’s his name) is someone who i have a crush on.

i think i’m allowed to feel this way now. he makes me happy. i don’t suspect big endings but right now it feels cozy. so for once in my life, i’m not going to try an control this. i’m gonna let it be. just see what happens. it’s just a boy. it’s between him and me. there aren’t stupid extra people who always live to ruin it for you. this time onwards i’m just keeping my personal life personal. and that’s the lesson i’ve learnt.

How the fuck did you find my Facebook?

7:23 am. Hair sprawled out across my pillow, tired eyes, and light starting to drop through the shades on my window, I am awakened by a slight vibrate coming from my phone.
Thinking it’s an alarm of some sort, I pat my hand around and search for my phone, and once I’m past the point where the screen is no longer blinding my eyes, I see it:

It’s fucking srini.

He found my Facebook. He apologized for “being so creepy before” and stated he wanted to take me out.

I swear to god. Hopefully this time you’ll take the fucking hint by me blocking you. This fellow is the most aggressive and obsessive man I’ve ever had to deal with, and he’s making me extremely uncomfortable.

Lacey sells NTAP 32.36: NetApp Is Doubling Down On 'Flawed Strategy,' Still A Hold, Says Summit Research

“In a report published Friday, WR Hambrecht analyst Srini Nandury reiterated a Hold rating and $32 price target on NetApp Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP). The analyst believes that the company is in denial of the real issues affecting the business and is "doubling down …” said Sade to Harriett on Sunday, June 28, 2015.

“My dear Miss Harriett,” said Sade, “have you heard that SACC went down to 4070.92?”

“Alpha Shares China Small Cap Index.”

Harriett replied that she had not.

“But it did,” said Sade. “Morning MoneyBeat: Small Caps Forecast to Lead Amid Better Economy THE BREAKFAST BRIEFING Lately small caps have outperformed their larger brethren. That should remain the case for the rest of the year if the economy continues to improve. Since the start of May, the small-cap Russell … expecting the index to end 2015 ..”

Harriett, with a mind so occupied, made no answer.

India’s win in World Cup was fixed by Srini, accuses Mustafa Kamal

Now that India has been comprehensively outplayed by Bangladesh in ODI series, skeletons are tumbling out of the cup board. Mustafa Kamal, former ICC President and Bangladeshi cricket official has lashed out at Srinivasan for single handedly helping India win the crucial game against Bangladesh in the Quarter finals, only to be defeated in the Semi Final.

In a startling revelation to Cricketnext, former ICC president Mustafa Kamal has directly accused ICC chairman N Srinivasan for single-handedly scripting India’s win over Bangladesh in the World Cup quarter-final earlier this year in March.

Sir, let’s begin with your country’s historic achievement. What do you have to say about the series victory against India? It is your first ever over India.

Yes. This is a good victory. I should be feeling very good. Obviously, every Bangladeshi is feeling very proud. Bangladesh has come of age, although they are still in the learning process but they have definitely come to a stage from where they have now the capability of beating any team. This is my belief. You might have seen, out of the last four encounters, we beat England three times. We beat them in Bristol, then during the last World Cup in Bangladesh and this World Cup also we beat them in Australia. So that way we are ok now but still, as I said, we are in a learning process. We will have to go a long way. The good thing is we have a bigger supply line now. We have a number of young boys. they are coming up and joining the team. Initially we were depending on 5-6 players, now we have at least 20-25 players. So that is a good strength and good prospect for us, for further scope of advancement in the coming years.

And where do you see ICC’s position in developing Bangladesh cricket and also that of BCCI?

ICC never directly helps any country for its cricketing development. Indirectly, they do. Indirectly, ICC encourages each member country, so that each member country participates and play each other. So, by playing against each other, they learn and they develop. So this is one area.

Secondly, by even FTPs, although FTPs are privately done, but even then it comes under the purview of ICC. So FTPs are helping each member country to move forward, and then there are ICC events. So there is scope of further advancement. These are the areas, these are the ways I feel ICC is helping the member countries to move their cricket forward.

But India and Bangladesh, they are very closely inter-linked and inter-woven as I would say. At the initial stages when we had just started playing cricket, India supported us in a big way compared to others. In fact, at that time, to my knowledge, other countries were not very pro to support Bangladesh getting its [Test] status. So, India helped us. As a country, because of our relations - economically, politically and also social - we have very strong bondage between India and Bangladesh. So that is why, that bondage is also helping. Cricket is also coming up as a component that will strengthen the ties between the two countries. So that way India is helping Bangladesh. India and Bangladesh, it is my belief, both of them will benefit by a long-term perspective. It is cricket, it is social areas, it is business, it is economic development, whatever way we feel like, whatever way we call it, it is bound to come up for both the countries because of our long relationship. Right from our independence until now, we are helping each other; and India, since it is a bigger country, it has a bigger responsibility to support us and to see our growth and to see that we also grow with them. If they grow alone, leaving us behind, that growth also is not sustainable. It is vulnerable. So that is why India has to grow and take Bangladesh along with them in their growth path so that growth becomes more meaningful and more sustained.

Sir, the whole world knows about the World Cup quarter-final controversy and what your stand was. At a lot of places, there were a lot of things published showing your position on that. Also you had some problem with the ICC and the ICC Chairman N Srinivasan. Some controversy happened during the World Cup final as well. So what do you have to say on that?

See in the World Cup final, there was no controversy. At the presentation ceremony, Mr. Srini [Srinivasan] was there. He thought that everybody would appreciate that but none appreciated. So I warned him not to do that because everybody who follows cricket knows that it’s the ICC president’s prerogative [to do the honors at the World Cup final presentation ceremony]. Every time it has been done like that, so now when they [general public/ experts] will see something is coming up differently, in that case they will not accept it gracefully. So they were opposing it and they expressed their sentiments.

That is his bad luck and he has defamed himself and he has defamed this grand game of cricket and the institution itself. So I think it was not a good way or a good gesture of a human being. It should not have been like that. I could do many things. I could go to the ground. I could give the trophy because I was the president and I knew my obligations. I could make an objection there. But I didn’t want to go that way. I said, “Okay, fine, fair enough”.

Srinivasan has lots of cases pending against him and there are corruption allegations against him. Don’t you think ICC should have thought that the game shouldn’t be maligned?

Now I am no more with ICC. I have done a good thing. While I was with the ICC, I raised my voice and I opposed his wrongdoings. Since I could not accept his wrongdoings, I had no other choice. [Then] I had no options left other than to resign from the president’s post. So now, I don’t want to talk anything about it. I left the entire issue to the world cricketing body, to their valued judgement, to their conscious.

People who are disputed, have disrespected their own country, disrespected in their own association, they have no right, no moral standing to be in charge of this type of mega institution where the entire world is involved. This was my view point. I am very clear on my thought and I am very clear on my views. A man should be clean. There are cases against his own family members, there are cases against him. It is a case of moral turpitude. A man with many negatives, he cannot be around the post of chairmanship or presidentship of a mega institution like the International Cricket Council.

The BCCI administration has changed. Jagmohan Dalmiya has again made a comeback. Since Dalmiya is there now, do you think things are going to improve in the BCCI administration, especially relations with the Bangladesh Cricket Board?

The relations between the BCCI and Bangladesh Cricket Board are very good and very strong. We are continuously communicating. Mr. Dalmiya, of course, likes cricket like anything and he ha helped our cricket. I am sure it must be in his mind that Bangladesh team is doing very good. At that time he fought everyone and he supported Bangladesh. He said during his tenure as ICC president, “Give them [Test] status, they will perform.” And see, Bangladesh is performing. So that ways, it is good. My relationship with him is very good. Bangladesh cricket’s relation with him is very good. Bangladesh cricket’s relation is extremely good with Indian cricket administration. I have been receiving letters from Mr Dalmiya. Even day before yesterday, I received a letter from him. Our relations are good. He wishes us good and I wish Indian cricket good. I always want that Indian and Bangladesh cricket should do well jointly and let us become more prosperous and go forward in a befitting manner.

Pro Kabaddi League: Telugu Titans – An intermittent display of brilliance

The Telugu Titans players and staff

One team in the first season of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) that recruited good domestic players and had a stable head at the helm was the Telugu Titans. The team from Visakhapatnam showed plenty of promise, but they narrowly missed out on the semi-final spot.

The team led by a prolific player in Rajaguru Subramanian was coached by J. Udayakumar. The team is owned by Veera Sports constituting entrepreneurs Srini Sreeramaneni, Mahesh Kolli and Gautham Nedurumalli of NED Group. With Port Trust Golden Jubilee Stadium as its home ground, this team from the south was determined to prove its mettle in the league. Though the Telugu Titans had the talent to go all the way, as shown in their home matches, but their inconsistent run resulted in a premature end to the tournament for them.

A horrid start for Telugu Titans

All eyes were on the Titans as they played Anup Kumar-led U Mumba in their opening match. The match ended in a stalemate with both teams scoring 35 points. Rahul Chaudhari and Sukesh Hegde shone for the Titans with 12 and 7 points respectively, while raiding.

In the next game with Jaipur Pink Panthers though, the Titans had to concede defeat as they managed to score 32 points, but let the Panthers post a mammoth 46. In the subsequent match with Patna Pirates too, the Titans could not get the victory and had to concede defeat. Rahul Chaudhari continued to display his best on the ground and made 11 raids with Deepak Nivas Hudda finishing a close second with 10 raid points.

Dabang Delhi were their first victims of the tournament with the scoreline reading 39-35 in Telugu Titans’ favour. Rahul Chaudhari had another stellar game while Deepak Nivas was not far behind. However, this victory was short-lived as Bengal Warriors won 40-35. However, the worst was yet to come for Telugu Titans as they suffered a 29-49 loss to Jaipur Pink Panthers resulting in a 4th loss for the team in just 6 matches. They won their final match before the home leg 42-36 against Puneri Paltan.

Home comforts

Playing their first match in front of the home crowd, the Telugu Titans were charged up and pulled out a brave 28-28 draw with Bengaluru Bulls. Their next match was one of the most thrilling encounters of the tournament as they won 44-43 to U Mumba with Rahul Chaudhari amassing 23 raid points.

The biggest victory by margin of points in the first season went to Telugu Titans as they ran riot against the team that finished bottom at the end of the tournament – Puneri Paltan. Having already beaten their opponents a few days ago, the Titans took their performance several notches higher and emerged on the winning side of a 60-24 win. Their final match at home was another victory for the Titans as they beat Dabang Delhi 45-26 to cap off a brilliant leg and rekindle hopes of a semi-final spot for them.

They drew and won their next 2 matches against Bengal Warriors and Patna Pirates respectively and went into the final match with a slim chance of qualifying for the knock-out stage. However, Bengaluru Bulls pipped the Telugu Titans to the semi-final spot with a narrow 27-26 win.

Rahul Chaudhari finished 2nd in the top raiders list at the end of the tournament while no defender from the team featured in the top 20 defenders of the tournament list.

Titans need to be more consistent

Despite a few brilliant games and impressive raids, the Titans did not meet expectations they had aspired for. Intermittent triumphs and oscillation between ends without a consistent movement deterred this team from progressing further in the league.

Though the inaugural season was more of a lesson for the team to harness its inherent strength and capitalise on its incredible raids, they will have to strategise their game to achieve more.

With the team shifting base to Hyderabad for the second season, they would look to better their performance from last season and improve their away form to finish in the top spot.
