In an interview with Outlook, Irfan Pathan claims that he has experienced "the vicissitudes of life at the top"...
From where did that come, I wonder? With all due respect to him, I can only say Mr. Haresh Pandya who interviewed him has an amazing writing sense. With all due respect to Irfan, I doubt he could have used that word....even Shashi Tharoor wouldnt have used such a word in his high school essays!
What's amusing is the fact that Irfan claims in the same interview that his performance in the India-Pak series was "not so good". Isnt there a word for "not-so-good"??????????????
So thats that!
Speaking of Shashi Tharoor, just finished reading his book "India: From Midnight to the Millenium". All said and done it's an amazing book, written really well. His "Great Indian Novel" occupies a proud position among the pantheon of the best novels I have ever read. I know a certain Cathedralite will accuse me of being partial to "another Campionite" and how the Campion mafia is at work again! Let's face it...the C&JC mafia beats the Campion mafia hands down...after all C&JC have Rushdie up their sleeve :P!
