Life is always full of uncertainties. We make some plans and things turn out totally different. A take on what is happening around me, on local and national politics and the Cricket World Cup 2015

Why have I been inactive on Wikinut recently

There was a phase last year when I was quite active and at times prolific on Wikinut. I was coming up with one or two articles a week, and commenting on articles as well as sharing articles on Google+ and Twitter.
I had plans for articles on topics like Politics, a fictional story series, cricket, technical articles and more. However, life is not a bed of roses.

Nor is life a series of pre-defined program that gets executed in a scheduled manner. There are happenings, incidents that derail highly well planned programs, that make us wonder how can we control things.

Something similar has been happening to me over last 1 and a half months. Things have been going haywire. Unexpected issues cropped up for me at work and in personal life.
At times, it seemed as if nothing is good. At times, things looked smooth and it seemed my golden age has come. And then, there were more unexpected things.

The worst as per me was that I was left with no time to think and write articles on Wikinut and other sites. occasionally, I squeezed in time here and there to share a few articles and post comments but that was all.

So, now I finally managed a few hours exclusively for Wikinut article, to share my take on recent happenings in Indian Politics and on cricket World Cup.

Whats happening in Indian Politics?

A lot has been happening in Indian Politics during the last few months:

  • Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party(AAP)'s thumping victory in the Delhi Elections. It was a huge surprise considering that BJP was favourite to win and was winning state elections in the other states in India. This time, Arvind Kejriwal is more cautious and tackling issues in a more rational way, though the dissent within his party has been causing some concern.
  • The political drama in Bihar could be explored for a few articles on different sites.
  • For the first time, BJP is in Power in Jammu and Kashmir though as the second partner in a coalition. However, will their alliance work in Jammu and Kashmir, given that they have some serious differences on certain political issues with People' s Democratic Party(PDP)? Let us wait and watch.
  • After the Delhi State elections debacle, Narendra Modi would have supposedly been under greater pressure for populist measures. However, it seems he has not done so.

And finally the Cricket World Cup 2015

The Cricket world cup 2015 would soon be nearing the end of the league stage.
India and New Zealand are currently topping their groups with some very convincing victories over tough opponents.

The Kiwis beat Australia and Sri Lanka and even England.
India beat Pakistan, West Indies, and beat South Africa in a world cup encounter for the first time. Except for the brief trouble India had against West Indies when the captain M.S.Dhoni played a calculated innings of 45 runs to take India through, India had very convincing victories. India is expected to top the group, except for a very huge upset if caused by Ireland or Zimbabwe.

I would be looking forward to India meeting the Kiwis in the semi-final and that match, if it takes place would be a treat to watch.

What I plan for Wikinut in the near future

I have some solid plans for Wikinut articles, given, and that is a very big word my plans do not get derailed again.
If that happens, may be I will be writing a story on myself :)

I too have been away from Wikinut for some time. The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.
It's nice to see you back here. The only comment I'd like to make is the kncokout stage of the World Cup will be a different ball game. India should avoid NZ a very dangerous side. Right now they are giant killers. See how they bowled out Australians for a paltry 152.
