Bits and Pieces

Edited picture, sourced from
Narain Karthikeyen is on the verge of an F1 start. JordanF1's new owners (Canada's Midland group) have confirmed that Narain would be their #1 driver, if he brings in sufficient funds (note: narain missed minardi for lack of funds). Chances, they say, are 90% [Rediff, however, has already declared the result]. With the kind of television viewership and F1 following in India, who wouldnt want to be a sponsor!

Indian fans Down Under cannot ask for more. Sania thirlled them first, and when F1 Calendar begins in Melbourne, time for national colors again. If all goes well. [Friends on track? BAR's Jenson Button, was Narain's rival in F3]

"He's pretty quick - but a bit wild as well. He'll be quite exciting." ~ Trevor Carlin, Jordan sporting director (with whom Narain had worked during his Formula 3 years).

I know or atleast knew Narain personally and pretty well since he used to be a part of the same Rotaract Club I was a member of. I dunno if he remembers me anymore :( but I can always say I used to know him. Attaboy Narain !

Great to see another guy from Coimbatore making news in the world of sports. Hopefully Adam Siclair will make his mark in a few years.

Right Anand, a family of risk-takers.
Wishing him the best.

Aside: Adam Sinclair remembers NandKishore as the hockey dude from Stanes.

Naan rouse panla. Narain and I were members of the same Rotaract Club and we met quite often for club meetings and events and stuff. In addition, he had a thing for Ramar temple in Ramnagar where I used to live and visited around the time I used to go often and we used to chat a bit there.
Ana all this was in 97-99 time frame. Ippo avan yaaro, naan yaaro :(

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
