Once, Egypt was the centre of the ancient world. Now, a once proud nation lies in tatters, torn by civil war, misrule and discord. Looking at Egypt, one thought comes to our mind, and refuses to go away. Pics: Egypt celebrates Prez Morsi's ouster
Egypt is a lot like the Pakistan cricket team. In case you think that's a strange comparison to make, just read on for the final and conclusive proof that, in fact, there is no real difference between Egypt and Team Pakistan:
1. Both have had multiple leaders: Everyone in the Pakistani cricket team has been captain, or so it seems. Similarly, we hear of a coup every second day in Egypt. Of course, one positive way to look at this is to say that everyone is given an opportunity to lead, but we think it's just further evidence of the chaos in both Egypt and Pakistani cricket.
2. Both have resorted to dubious tactics: The Pakistani match-fixing team is well known for playing cricket now and then. The Egyptian leaders have oppressed their people for decades, and now the people are hitting back - literally. All might be fair in love and war, but not in daily life, surely!
3. Both have seen civil war: The number of factions in the Pakistan team is about the same as the number of players. The number of factions in Egypt is like the number of grains of sand in the Sahara. Yet another similarity added to the ever-growing list.
4. Both have seen dictatorial leaders: Every captain of Team Pakistan tries to be a dictator, and ends up being exactly like one - that is, of a small Central African country, who gets thrown out in a few months. Egypt saw Hosni Mubarak for decades, and seem to be cursed to see many more like him.
5. Both have forgotten their past: Team Pakistan was once the home of glorious, talented, mercurial players. Egypt was once the most admired civilization in the ancient world. Today, people write jokes comparing the two of them.
6. The people lose in the end: After Egypt's 'leaders' are done fighting among themselves and beggaring their country, the people will wake up to find that they're on a roller coaster headed to becoming like Zimbabwe. After Pakistan's fans realize that their idols play cricket with all the integrity of WWE wrestlers, they will have nothing left to watch. It is a shame that two once-mighty entities have let down all who admired and loved them.

The Congress Party cannot be happy right now. After contesting in 5 states over the past few weeks, they are winning just one, the smallest of the bunch. In the others, their seat share stands at a pitiful, exam-failing 21%. Heads will roll, strategies will be debated, RaGa will emerge unscathed.
R...Rajkumar is bad. We don’t wish to spend too much time on using words to explain how bad it is because it is movies like this which prove that every second of your life is precious. Spending it on R...Rajkumar is a huge mistake. Right from the inexplicable use of fullstops in the title to the insanity that went into writing the dialogues, R...Rajkumar had us thinking about all the bad things that happened in our lives, and how they actually become good when compared to whatever it was that Prabhu Dheva was attempting.
As the economy keeps inflating, so do Bollywood collections. In no time, they’ll each be making the equivalent of the cost of one onion! We predict that the upcoming Dhoom 3 will make 300 crore. Here’s why:
Following elections in Delhi yesterday, exit polls point to the fact that the Congress is going to lose, and pretty badly. What a surprise. Not. Considering the Congress’ performance over the past few months, we’re sure pretty much ANYONE could have beaten them. Here are a few examples:

This week, we are gearing up to watch Prabhu Dheva’s next outing on the silver screen, ‘R…Rajkumar’ (RR).

Yesterday was the season premiere of the fourth edition of Koffee with Karan, and it sure didn’t disappoint. Salman Khan, who was a guest on the first episode, claimed to be a virgin (he may as well have told us that pigs fly – there’s a higher probability of that actually being true)
