A Shattered Italian Dream... Fading colors of Azzurri

Date : 24th June 25, 2010

Venue : Johannesburg , Ellis Park

The final whistle blew leaving the score line read 3-2 in favour of Slovakia,  Italy disappointed and mad about football Italians must be trying to accept the fact that the players will have to return back to early from SA.
Italians, though, do disappointment well, with a touch of Latin charm. They don't turn nasty, like the English used to when they lost. The hurt is real. But there's a fatalism behind the anger - especially in the south. Such is life; they seem to say with a shrug of the shoulders. As a young priest put it - watching in despair with a group of children on a church-run summer camp: "We won it in 2006; it's someone else's turn this year."
For a side undemonstrative of its real strength in WC , the people of Italy may be a little phlegmatic but the emotions are not hard to understand.

I guess an early exit from world cup will pave the way for a new formation of Azzurri with more young forwards, Midfielders and the defenders too including the GK .
The world is still beautiful.. ain't it ?

I really don't get that idea of bonus even if i have been living by that for most of my employment history.As an employee, it hardly makes a sense to me to be promised a sum of future money for what is my regular duty.Not that I dont like additional money , I want that additional money paid as my fixed monthly incumbments. Somewhere in my mind there is an idea that tells me that Bonus is a form of suspicion that certain individual or company may not perform it's duty so let's cover our risks.

I must say that to my own standards I am exceptional at performing my duties and its only my boss who fail to recognize my efforts. Sometimes he is the one who belittle my performance to save his own Ass. Having said that, its not unusual for my peers to put me in a category of people who get those grades which put an impressive claim on all Bonus.

Conversely , from an employers perspective this seems true to me.If I ever had a chance to run a company and deciding over the wages of thos…

Bring Back the Touch

Even at at time of high ended communication, there is no substitute of physical presence of your beloved ones. What we see at airports , Railway stations are just not because of crowd pulling heros, there are people lovingly waiting , fondly missing and craving to hug someone.
The touch is everywhere. #BringBackTheTouch
