Indicast # 147: Anna "Lokpal" Hazare

Tuesday, 30 August 2011 05:30 Published in Indicast

After being missing in action for over a month, we are glad to be back. The recent has had some big ticket happenings in India including Lokpal bill and India losing its #1 test ranking spot. Given the significance of the event, we spent most of the time talking about Anna Hazare's movement against corruption and discussed the key points only. Even that took about 20 minutes to cover. The other topics include India's test drubbing by England and 2011 sports awards.

The Sportsbench & Hand of Pod producers, Sam Kelly and Daniel Colasimone, got together ahead of the Argentina vs Venezuela international friendly to give you an idea of what can be expected from Argentines in the upcoming game on Sept 2 as well as over the medium term. Arunava Chaudhuri is conspicuous by his absence on this episode, as he is travelling with the Indian national team in the Caribbean.

We talk about Carlos Tevez & Fernando Gago - both of whom have failed to find a place on new coach Alejandro Sabella’s squad. While it will be difficult to take eyes off Lionel Messi, Sam & Dan tell Indian football fans that Javier Pastore, Ricardo Alvarez & Eduardo Salvio are others that should be watched.

South American teams - especially Argentina & Brazil - have a massive massive fan base in India (& especially in Kolkata) having made inroads into the hearts of football fans long before the marketing blitzkrieg of certain European leagues. While Pele, Maradona, Diego Forlan have played/made an appearance in this City of Joy, a FIFA-ratified international friendly is a biggie.

Friday, 22 July 2011 05:30 Published in Indicast

Mumbai went through another series of blasts leading to another pointless discussion on Indicast about it. Frankly, we are tired of talking about terrorism in India, especially Mumbai. We try to bring up several points about the blasts and not talk about the usual things. Minal, who is part of Indicast's Sport podcast, joined us int his episode to tell her about us experience of being at Lord's Cricket Stadium on Day 1 of India vs England Test. needless to say, we dragged her into things she wasn't prepared for but handled herself quiet well.
