They are right. Bikes add swag. Especially when you lean on one while keeping an eye on the dog whom you feed every day, Daring the world to disturb him. Even if it is not your bike. The Angel of Khan Market.

That's how you run towards a new year... Closing out the year with one of my favourite Indian cricket photographs. Smiling broadly, Bishan Bedi, Tiger Pataudi, Chandrasekhar, Anshuman Gaekwad and Gundappa Vishwanath run to the pavilion after India beat the West Indies. 1974-75.

I am going to be blunt: 2024 is the year when content creators and writers in India could lose all credibility among consumers (it is bad enough right now - people seem to trust user reviews!). A lot of us need to figure out what counts: brands, celebrities or our audience.

One of the most iconic scenes in The Godfather is of Marlon Brandon, playing Don Vito Corleone, talking to people while playing with a kitten in his lap. Many see the kitten as reflecting the Don himself - assured, affectionate but sharp. Its presence is considered a cinematic master stroke by director Francis Ford Coppola. The truth is that it was totally unplanned. The cat wandered into the set… Read more

“Hmmm…he seems to have his elbows right…” As the Indian team practices under lights for the first time at Sydney in 1981, Yashpal Sharma plays one down very correctly. His captain, Sunil Gavaskar, watches. (Had not seen this before so very pleasantly surprised.)

As a lot of talk is going on about how the World Cup was presented, here’s a look at perhaps The best World Cup trophy presentation ever. A very young 21-year-old Malcom Marshall lifts the World Cup in 1979. Even as the teams intermingle and smile, irrespective of who won and lost.

And then there were seven! Allan Border seems a little overwhelmed as the seven captains of the teams in the WCC 1985 get clicked. Three of them would step down after the tournament. And two within a year of it. Only two would remain at the 1987 World Cup. One would win it. (L-R: Back: David Gower, Clive Lloyd, Sunil Gavaskar, Duleep Mendis Front: Javed Miandad, Allan Border, Geoff Howarth)
