Issue No. 11


The 2009 Indian Premier League season or the IPL 2 will be hosted by South Africa and is scheduled between April 18 and May 24, 2009. IPL 2 is expected to be the second biggest cricket tournament in the world, after the Cricket World Cup, and will have an estimated television audience of more than 200 million people in India alone. Since the second season of the IPL coincided with multi-phase 2009 Indian general elections, India’s ruling United Progressive Alliance (UPA) refused to commit security by Indian paramilitary forces. As a result, the BCCI decided to host the second season of the league outside India. On March 24, 2009, the BCCI officially announced that the second season of the IPL will be held in South Africa. The IPL is expected to inject approximately US$100 million into South Africa’s local economy. In addition, the BCCI signed a Rs. 8,200 crores contract with Multi Screen Media to broadcast matches live from South Africa to India.

THIS WEEK’S CALENDER April 19 - National Garlic Day April 20 - Look Alike Day


The only thing I learnt, Is that ‘Life goes on’, It takes you from darkness to light, From dust to dawn. A new life with ups and downs Takes you from ground to sky, From penny to a million. It may take you high. It may go slow, Or may it take a strike, It might be a roller coaster, Or a slow and peaceful ride. Having more doesn’t matter, You should ask for the least. If you’re true at heart, Your life turns a feast. But you ought to be careful, Stay awake and don’t sleep. A new life also has another side, Which is dark, unsafe and deep.

You move to darkness from light To dust from dawn, But I have only learnt That ‘Life goes on’. 2. The Mayo College Mail, Saturday, April 18

pieces W ITTICISM 1.) The road to success is always under construction. 2.) Alcohol doesn’t solve any problems, but if you think again, neither does milk. 3.) All the desirable things in life are either illegal or expensive. 4.) Since light travels faster than sound, people appear brighter before you hear them speak. 5.) Everyone has a scheme of getting rich which never works. 6.) If at first you don’t succeed destroy all evidence that you ever tried. 7.) As soon as you mention something if it is good, it is taken; if it is bad, it happens. 8.) If you come early, the bus is late. If you come late the bus is still late. 9.) Once you have bought something, you will find the same item being sold somewhere else at a cheaper rate. 10.) When in a queue, the other line always moves faster and the person in front of you will always have the most complex of transactions. 11.) If you have paper, you don’t have a pen. If you have a pen, you don’t have paper. If you have both, no one calls. 12.) If you have bunked the class, the teacher has taken attendance. 13.) You will pick up maximum wrong numbers when on roaming. 14.) The door bell or your mobile will always ring when you are in the bathroom. 15.) After a long wait for bus no.20, two 20 number buses will always pull in together and the bus which you get in will be crowded than the other. 16.) If your exam is tomorrow, there will be a power cut tonight. 17.) The last person to be fired or quit is responsible for all the errors until another person is fired or quits. 18.) Irrespective of the direction of the wind, the smoke from the cigarette will always tend to go to the non-smoker. 19. Behind every successful man there is a woman, behind every unsuccessful there are two.


TERRORISTS 1. We are always late - we would have missed the fl ight which was meant to be hijacked. 2. We would talk loudly and bring attention to ourselves. 3. With free food & drinks on the plane, we would forget why we’re there in the first place 4. We talk with our hands - therefore we would have to put our weapons down. 5. We would ALL want to fl y the plane . 6. We would a argue and start a fight in the plane. 7. We can’t keep a secret ; we would have told everyone a week before doing it. 8. We would have put our country’s flag on the windshield. 9. We would have postponed the mission because a cricket match was going on that day 10. We would all have fallen over each other to be in the photograph being taken with one of the hostages.

KILLING ENGLISH “Sit down and get out” “I’ll give you a one chocolate” “He, Who, You…When?” “Make a line a straight” “Both the 3 of u stand in the 4 corners of the room”
