  1. wait for rain continues.No more easterlies (or) system can be expected until April. Thereafter we can expect local activity due to heat.

  2. Come rain or shine, smile


    Remember that old rhyme, ‘Rain, rain, go away, little Johnny wants to play’? Well, if you knew exactly when it was going to rain, you wouldn’t have to deal with little Johnny’s tantrums due to unexpected showers. As always, you can look to your smartphone for assistance.

    The Weather (earlier, ilMeteo Weather)

    ilMeteo’s weather app is more advanced than your average weather apps; in that it shows you real-time conditions via satellite pictures, webcams and expert analysis. And not just your exact location – around the globe as well. You can also check for wind, sea and surf conditions to plan that boating expedition. While it includes great widgets, they won’t be available if you move the app to your SD card or install it there. Also, on multi-user devices (attention, Android Lollipop users), the app would work only with the default user.

    GO Weather Forecast & Widget

    One of the most popular weather apps, GO Weather Forecast & Widget comprises an easy-to-use and clean user interface. In conjunction with AccuWeather, the app is able to provide accurate weather information for 200000 plus locations globally. There are more than a 1000 personalised themes, including plenty of widgets and wallpapers that come in different sizes. The app also offers weather alerts, hourly/daily forecast, wind and precipitation forecasts, even map and radar information. The app also supports a multitude of languages, including Hindi and Urdu.


    Social media is everywhere, and weather apps want a piece of the pie. This app basically personalises your weather forecasts. That is, it lets you share photos with your friends on various social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) with the weather report and forecast of the place you are in currently. As put it, the app is “the social side of getting wet, soaking up the sun”. You can select your favourite skin from more than 70 options and even include very detailed forecasts with air pressure, temperature, rain, wind power and direction.


    The app employs high-end gaming technology and great graphics for you to check out the weather forecast of any location on Earth in real-time. You can rotate the globe, zoom in/zoom out, watch it rain at any location or trace the path of an approaching low-pressure system.

    You can choose what weather layer to view (like cloud cover, rain or wind), switch to the climate data mode for a global overview of climatic conditions, even view images from live webcams all over the globe. MeteoEarth also works beautifully with Chromecast. So go ahead, give it a whirl. Literally.

  9. A close look at the format of the 2015 ODI World Cup shows. much of the tournament will be played for largely inconsequential games. That apart, the teams playing the last group games will enjoy unfair advantage over their rivals.
    For instance. Even if the Men in Blue lose three of the six group games to South Africa, Pakistan and West Indies, they can still qualify for the quarters by defeating the minnows: Zimbabwe, UAE and Ireland. The same is true for the other all biggies.
    The real tournament begins only at the knock-out stage starting on March 18. That’s almost five weeks after the 2015 ODI World Cup commences on Feb 14.

  13. India;s Fast Bowling All rounders since 1990’s and Why India should open with Stuart Binny, the only hope for M.S.Dhoni
    After Kapil Retired we had some Fast Medium Allrounders, but none can win matches with both bat and ball on the same day.

    Manoj Prabhakar – 130 matches, Runs – 1858, Bat Avg – 24.12, Wkts – 157
    Robin Singh – 136 matches, Runs – 2366, Bat Avg – 25.95, Wkts – 69
    Sourav Ganguly – 311 matches, Runs – 11363, Bat Avg – 41.02, Wkts – 100
    Ajit Agarkar – 191 matches, Runs – 1269, Bat Avg – 14.58, Wkts – 288
    Irfan Pathan – 120 matches, Runs – 1544, Bat Avg – 23.99, Wkts – 173

    Certainly, if the above allrounders (excl Ganguly as he is mostly a batsman / Agarkar more of bowler eventhough he holded the then record for fastest 50 ) deserved to play for India, then Stuart Binny can play 100 ODI matches, till India searches for Next Kapil Dev.
