Revision as of 13:43, 18 July 2008

Hi, I'm Upamanyu Mallik, 14. I live in a rathole known as New Delhi in the best country in the world (or so I think), India.

There are three things in life I live for, cricket, food and travel'.

Things I like to ponder over....

  • Why the heck does Dhoni not believe in using spinners as an attacking option (if you don't follow cricket, you won't follow a word)
  • If French fries aren't really French (but Belgian), why on earth are they known as French fries (I never knew this till I read Asterix in Begium!)
  • Why do Americans call their weird helmet-bashing sport football, so aptly described in Man, Woman and Child as the bashing of empty skulls
