This is what Steve Waugh wrote in his column titled "A case of cultural differences" today in The Hindu.
Indians too would be finding Australia’s aggression and desperation on the field way beyond what’s acceptable. But we play hard from the time we are youngsters in the backyard, and even our politicians go hammer and tongs at each other on television!
And this is a news item on CNN IBN...
The Indians argue that "monkey" is not racially insulting in their country. Hogg is understood to have said, "I'm looking forward to running through you bastards," and the Indians claim "bastard" is deeply offensive in their culture.
Seems like the relationship between the two teams is at rock bottom these days...

2007 was a year of new beginnings and heartbreaks for me. A lot of things happened that were partly my own creations and partly circumstantial. Some things did not work out but I have since moved on to other things that I feel are going right so far. I traveled for the first time out of India and had a wonderful time visiting new places and making new friends. I bought a DSLR, something that I has been on my wishlist for a long time and have used it quite often to my satisfaction.
It was a great travel year for me and here are the places I visited in chronological order:
Half Moon Bay:
Muir Woods and Fisherman's Wharf (San Francisco):
New York City:
Karwar (a bike trip):
Honey Valley, Coorg:
