See that hunger in those eyes!!! thats what we had been looking for years...Thats Akhil Kumar for you guys...Bantom weight boxer from India in the beijing quarter finals. What he said after entering the quarter finals appealed n impressed me the most. He said dreams are not what you see after you sleep, dreams are those that dont just lets you sleep. If he continues to follow his thoughts like this, then he is surely gonna go miles and I just wanna wish him and the other 2 boxers, Vijendra and Jitendra Kumar who have also made it to the quarters from the bottom of my heart....

Hi ,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Southpaw unplugged’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

You can also win an exciting t-shirt by winning the contest which is going on in rambhai.com…. hurry up the contest is from 10 – 24 august…

Cheers,
