Dear ICC, Instead Of Focussing On Dhoni's Gloves, Please Focus On Improving The Umpiring Quality
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsThe fans of Indian cricket are livid ever since the International Cricket Council (ICC) has ordered the Board of Control for Cricket in India or the BCCI to remove the regiment badge of Indian Army's Para Special Forces unit from wicket keeper MS Dhoni's gloves. “We have requested the BCCI to get it removed,” Claire Furlong, the ICC General Manager, strategic communications was quoted as saying by the Times of India as according to the ICC regulations, “the ICC equipment and clothing regulations do not permit the display of messages that relate to political, religious or racial activities or causes during an international match.” The fact that Dhoni showing his respect for the servicemen of the nation does not promote any political, religious or racial agenda thereby should be self-explanatory and the apex cricket council should have no problems with the former World Champion's gesture, especially when the Indian Army shows no objection and supports him. #DhoniKeepTheGlove You are a cricketer, before that you are a soldier!

MSD pic.twitter.com/pjcslND7px — Samrat Jha (@samratorsam) June 7, 2019 Instead, as the ultimate caretaker of the game of cricket and carrying out a smooth execution of matches worldwide, the ICC must focus on things that more so much more than what non-controversial symbol a player is wearing on his wicket keeping gloves, horrible and amateurish umpiring being one of them. Take the World Cup match between Australia and the West Indies for that matter. The umpires who evidently got intimidated by the prolonged Australian appeals gave out some pretty awful decisions against the Windies side that eventually caused them the game. Opening batsman Chris Gayle and skipper Jason Holder, both fell prey to incorrect decisions by the umpires twice only to be saved by the third umpire. The fact that on-field umpire missed out on a massive no-ball delivered by Aussie bowler Mitchell Starc and Chris Gayle was dismissed on the next ball which would have been a free hit had the previous delivery been rightfully called as overstepping did not help make the officials' case any better. Dear @ICC, Instead of focussing on MS Dhoni's gloves better focus on improving the quality of umpires. 4 decisions overturned so far in today's game + a huge No Ball miss that costed Chris Gayle's wicket. We have better umpires in our gully cricket. #DhoniKeepTheGlove #CWC19 https://t.co/EqeYYYDLUt pic.twitter.com/YTjB5ThcNK — Sir Jadeja fan (@SirJadeja) June 6, 2019 "To lose Chris in a chase of 280, who can probably get 180 of them himself obviously, broke the start that we wanted to have,” Carlos Brathwaite told reporters after the match. Jamaican cricketing legend Michael Holding who was commentating on television sounded extremely frustrated with the kind of officiating that was happening in front of his eyes. “The umpiring in this game has been atrocious,” Holding said. So the question that now arises is why the ICC is not concerned about the bad umpiring that has been ruining World Cup matches for some of the best teams in the international circuit and focused on one player's gloves?
Indians love their booze and appreciate the kind of 'high' the golden-mahogany liquids are capable of inducing. Hardcore Indian guzzlers do not believe in discriminating between theke ka daaru desi (remember this track from 'Cocktail'?) and classy IMFL liquor served at fancy bars and restaurants. From the throat-burning shots of liquor to the lighter ones that glide easily and warm us up, most Indians will say yes to any, and every boozy option out there. © Getty Images Yet, even though Indians love to brag about their drinking skills, according to The Global Drug Survey held recently, it seems that India still has to work hard to be amongst the top 5 drunkest countries in the world. As per the results of the recent survey released by London, which is also known as the League of Shame, it showed that the United Kingdom is the drunkest country in the world, while India stands in the sixth position. © Rajkumar Hirani Films According to the survey, the British get drunk 51.1 times a year, which is at least once a week, whereas Indians get drunk 41 times a year, which is almost once a week. At the second position is United States (50.3), followed by Canada (47.9) and Australia (47.4). Many South American countries were seen to be drinking least predominantly. © Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Talking about the UK's lead in the survey, Adam Winstock, the founder of the survey and a consultant addiction psychiatrist told Hindustan Times that, “We get told too much is bad, and it is, but current guidelines fail to accept the pleasure of intoxication and give a little guide on the difference between being a little drunk and a lot drunk, and doing it three to four times a year versus weekly.” We wonder how Indians will take their ranking in something they love to indulge in, and believe they are actually good at.

ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsIt's that time of the year again when I go through my ritual of sending out PSAs to my non-Christian brethren to not go around wishing people a 'Happy Good Friday' and give high-fives saying “Yeah! Good Friday wala long weekend! Whooo!” The sad part is that despite my numerous attempts, through the years, there are always those select handful of morons who manage to fill my Whatsapp chats and social media feeds with a “Hey Marina, Happy Good Friday. Have a good one.” I can't even… via GIPHY Honestly, the mind just reels at the stupidity! What does it take for these people to get it? So, this year, I am taking my PSA responsibilities to the next level and am writing this article, to inform all you wonderful people, that walking around wishing Christians a 'Happy Good Friday' is probably the rudest and most disrespectful thing you could ever do. Now, I firmly believe that no one is doing this intentionally. Because if you ARE doing that, then my friend, the Lord save you. But I do believe that's it's clearly a simple matter of lack of information, which is making people say so. I mean, I get it. It has the word 'good' in it, so naturally, it's something to be celebrated, right? Sorry guys, but no. It, in fact, is one of the most solemn and sorrowful days for the Christian community across the globe. © Icon Productions Good Friday commemorates the day Jesus Christ was crucified to death in the most brutal way imaginable. The Bible says that Jesus was mercilessly beaten up, tortured and then made to carry his own cross on which he was crucified. Watch 'The Passion of Christ' to get a better idea. Yes, what's so 'good' about this entire thing, right? Clearly 'Sad Friday' would have been more apt. But there is a reason for Christ's suffering being labelled as 'good'. Now, I don't want to go into the whole logistics where the Oxford English Dictionary states that 'good' in this particular context, refers to “a day or season observed as Holy by the Church.” Instead, I want to show you the bigger picture and the deeper meaning behind Good Friday. We Christians firmly believe that Christ sacrificed himself to show his love for mankind. On Good Friday, we remember, according to 1 John 1:10, the day Jesus willingly died as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. His suffering and inhuman death, as extremely terrible as it was, was God's incredible plan to save all mankind, even though he had to sacrifice his one and only son. © Icon Productions I imagine if I was there that day Jesus died, I would have probably agreed with most of you lot and questioned what was so good about that day. All hope was lost, Satan was clearly having a party and evil had triumphed. But a few days later, something happened that turned the tables around. Good Friday is followed by Easter, the glorious day Jesus rose from the dead, marking his victory over sin and showing a future full of promise and forgiveness, for all those who believed in him. As terrible as the day was, Good Friday paved the way for mankind's salvation, which is marked as 'good' by us Christians. We humans are not capable of erasing all our sins and guilt, but Christ did the unimaginable and died for us. © Reuters Most Christians around the world spend the day in prayer and fasting and confessing their sins, as they prepare for the Easter celebrations. So there you go, I really, really, really hope I have successfully made you guys understand the meaning and the significance of this day. And here's hoping I don't see any 'Happy Good Friday' messages on my feed anymore!
