Have a start, got to score…

End of the year is always a time for stock taking. What weachieved in the year; Where we failed; How much could have been done and Howmuch is left.
But it’s also a time to think, what we could do more. As ayear ends, another one begins. That’s the beauty of time. That’s the beauty ofsport. After every year, another one has to follow. After every match, despitefailures, another is always in waiting. Life goes on.

A sign of Good Times to come?

Heard a conversation in a public vehicle: God must be Nepali. For he made sure we dowell in two sports in a single day.
Needless to say, the person inquestion was talking about Nepali football team’s performance against Jordan (2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers) and U-19 cricket team’s start in ICC U-19 WorldCup qualifiers.
Yes,Nepali Colts beat Afghanistan convincingly. Most were expecting the result, maybe not with such a margin though.
But in another case, Jordan advanced to the group stage of the qualifiers, beatingNepal by a huge margin. The scores, in aggregate, stood at 10-1 in favor ofJordan, while Nepal managed merely a draw at home. So what’s the fuss about? A draw?
