Q. Direction Software Solutions is a software services firm based in Mumbai and specializes in developing & implementing Internet strategies for businesses & providing high-end software development services for clients such as Sippy Films, Alex Cannon and Otto Versand. Who is the CEO??
Here's the cry-baby crying again:

"World champion Fernando Alonso believes his McLaren team are giving preference to his rookie team-mate Lewis Hamilton.
The Spaniard had misgivings as soon as he joined the team at the end of 2006
He said: "From the first moment, I wasn't completely comfortable. I am in an English team, with an English team-mate, who is doing brilliantly. "We knew all the support and help would go his way. It is something I understand and I'm not complaining." (not complaining??!excuse me whats all this about then???!!)
I've won two races out of six and I've finished on the podium four times and I have those 40 points that will allow me to fight for the title in the end," he said.
"I'm calm, I'm fine, though I know there is some impatience to return to the top and dominate.
"But I'm second in the championship, I'm eight points behind. It would be worse if I were at Renault, or Honda or any other team. "

In addition to what he had said earlier:

"Alonso cursed the effect the safety car had on the race, saying: "It always makes the races a lottery and you need luck.
"I had to stop on lap 24, and the safety car came out on lap 24, I had to stop on lap 49-50 and it came out on lap 47, and that was the race for me.
"My team-mate benefited the most. As I said, the safety car is a lottery and there can't be a race where you are more out of luck than I have been. "There will be other times when it will be my turn to have a good race and the rest will have all the bad luck." "
I dont know if something like this has been posted on this forum before, but here's some interesting piece of trivia i came across...

Q. It is taken from an Aramaic form which roughly means "what I speak is destroyed," and is influenced by the Latin word for "corpse". It is also said to be inspired by Aramaic for "I will create as I speak," which is thought to be in reference to God creating the universe. Which are these two words?

In a fantastic development, Graham Ford has declined the offer to coach Team India.
After throwing his hat in the ring, and pitching very hard for the job, it will be interesting to know what exactly changed his mind? My guess is probably the stresses of the 2nd toughest job in the country. And probably also all the politics involved with anything involved with the BCCI. I guess his one experience of dealing with the panel that interviewed him was enough to convince him!
Question is: who next?
Emburey? Im personally not convinced by this guy: to start with he was a spinner, not a very gr8 batsman....and his credentials as a coach arent very impressive.
Dav Whatmore? He was the guy i was personally rooting for, as he definitely had it in him to turn the team around. Why he wasnt chosen will remain a mystery, altho there have been rumours that Shastri and Gavaskar were against him. Again for what reason nobody really knows. Whatmore after being virtually assured of the job, and then rudely turned down, apparently because 'he was too keen', after this i dont think he wudnt want to have anything to do with the BCCI
Shastri: He has said that he's not interested and he's got his media commitments, but one never knows...
After all this my prediction is that it will most likely be an Indian coach...

Here are some comments made by alonso after the race:

I dont know why this guy always keeps cribbing, he should take these things on the chin. These things happen in F1. God, this guys such a cry-baby! Everything that happens is someone else's fault. Try and take a leaf out of raikkonens book, who can write a book about bad luck!!
This article, by Swaminathan A Aiyer, appeared in the TOI yesterday. I found it a really good read
