We turned a round n saw..........
A young & HOT chick standing at the place were laid Moi-Sne-Menor (yes my frenz HOOOOOTTTT!!!!).
We were confused & we looked @ each other, hoping someone would be able to answer our queries.
She really looked calm as a cucumber(Oye, thank you, Siddhuji). She was busy doing some exercise. She got a bit conscious with all the eyes on her.
I walked up to her n asked, “Who are you?”
She shot back saying “You know me”, with a big smile on her face.
I got really confused, coz I had never seen her before.
I asked her again “Do we know each other?”
She said “Yeah”, with a smile on her face.
I was getting irritated; I knew she was playing with me.
This time I spoke harshly “Am sorry, am not in a mood to play riddles, so please introduce yourself again.”
She took the hint from my voice & said “Am the same creature whom u were capturing in your camera.”
I was stunned.
I uttered to myself “So, Elango n Kuppu were successful with their magic”.
“I don’t think so.” she interrupted.
“Why do you think so?” I enquired.
She held my hand n took me into a corner & …………….
………………… (don’t get any ideas ppl, this story doest have an ‘A’ certificate, let me continue with the narration)
She said in a serious voice:
“Coz am an Ecchadari Girl, I can take any form, I was just resting here n decided to take n new form 2day, but accidentally you ppl caught sight of me. I usually come here to have some rest & go unnoticed by the tribals. I had to come out into to my real form coz I cannot stay in a particular form for a longtime.”
I was shocked; I couldn’t believe my ears, coz I had seen all this only in Mithun Da movies & X-men series(you can compare her to Mystique, I hope you guys(Ziom & Snehal) remember how Mystique ditched us).
She spoke louder so that everybody could hear “Now that you ppl found me, I’ll name the creature after your names. I’ll name the creature Moi-Sne-Menor”
Saying this she waked away from us. All the people started waving @ her, along with Elango n Kuppu who were now conscious. She turned around n waved us back.
I had written down everything by then. I looked up n waved her back. She smiled back @ me & vanished after that. She had requested me not to reveal her true story until, it’s was very important.
Now that I have answered all your questions, as to why the creature was named Moi-Sne-Menor. I would like to thank Dr.Snehal & Mr.Ziom for their support & all the viewers of futsal-mania for the continued interest.
Last but not the least I’ll like to thank Elango & Kuppu.

Soon we heard a faint voice.....
We all started looking at each other & then started searching in all directions for the source of the Unknown Voice.The voice sounded very familiar,i had heard that voice many times before, but couldn’t relate to it at that point of time.Everyone looked curious after they heard the voice. Elango looked very irritated; coz he had lost his concentration and was supposed to start again.
Elango soon started with his chants.
Just then the blue sky got covered with dark clouds and in a matter of seconds it started raining, we all ran for cover coz we didn’t want to lose our valuable stuffs(Cameras,papers,etc). Elango’s magic was working we all thought, but Elango looked more dejected than joyous.
I wondered “what the fcuk was going on?”
We heard the same voice again. This time the voice was deafening, it sounded as if (not AsIf) Lightening had struck somewhere close. We all looked in unison towards the source of the voice. It was Moi-Sne-Menor we all hoped, but the voice came from the opposite direction.
We all turned back. To see the source of the voice …….
It was a white man dressed like a tribal. He was walking towards us. We all went Bonkers looking at him & wondered what the hell is wrong with that guy. By this time I had broken the “Code”, I mean I could relate to the sound. It was the sound of FART.
The White Tribesman was farting like an AK47 gun. Non-stop.
Looking at him and hearing him FART, Elango lost his control and started yelling at him.
It was Kuppu, Elango’s younger brother. (Twist in the tale).
Unlike Elango, Kuppu was short, fat & fair (yes fair, he was a big fan of Michael Jackson (M.J.) & had gone thru a plastic surgery to be like ICON)
Elango had lost his temper by now and he shouted at the top of his voice:-
“Abbey Kuppu Choddna bandh kar”. (Stop farting Kuppu)
“Iddhar aa aur meri madat kar”. (Come here & help me out)
Hearing Elango yell @ the top of his voice, Kuppu stopped farting (don’t ask me how; I don’t want to get into the details.)
With Kuppu beside him Elango appeared more confident this time around. Before starting they advised us to keep quiet, coz the magic would affect the person who breaks their concentration & it could be really dangerous, unless you know tricks to transfer it into good luck. As they were about to finish their “Pooja” (ritual), someone from the tribesmen sneezed & instinctively Dr.Snehal said “God Bless You”, after he realized what he had done, he got a bit scared & started sweating like a “timus” (pigs are called timus in the Amazon) and he said something which was instantaneous just to show that he was fearless (any guesses on what he said...)
“Kuch bhi, iissa nahi hota hai”.
Just after that he got transformed into a handsome guy (you can check his orkut friends list & scraps to get more details). He had said the Magic words “Kuch bhi” which saved him from his misery.
Meanwhile Elango & Kuppu fell down coz they were completely exhausted. They had put in their complete energy n effort to make Moi-Sne-Menor speak, but thanks to Dr.Snehal who screwed up their efforts. Good for him. (Btw when reports last came in Dr.Snehal had close to 100 friends’ n more than 200 scraps in just 15 days, unbelievable isn’t it)
We ran n picked Elango n Kuppu with the help of some tribesmen. While we were taking them to their tents, we saw a Bright Light coming from behind us.We turned around n saw..........

As Mr.Ziom had mentioned that there was a man called Elango the Tribal leader from the jungles of the Amazon and he was watching us from a distance.
After we had finished filming our Documentary and were packing n were all set to leave, Elango came out frm his hiding place and started speaking to us in a language which only I could fathom.
For the full story refer to the comments on earlier post Comments on Discovery (must read comments from Ziom)
Elango was very friendly in nature and he soon became very good friend of Kurt(tht's me).He soon started telling him abt his Tribe n also abt the Amazon. From his story i came to know that he has been a Tribal leader for the past 15 yrs and
Let me describe to you how Elango looks like…
He was not like the regular Tribals we watch on Discovery Channel.
At First look, we thought tht he was a Filmstar or a Popstar or a R&B Singer
He was tall, dark and had an athletic build.
There was a big difference between him n the other tribals.
He usually wore Versace tee, Wrangler jeans, with a Rolex watch, his shoes were from Nike, he also sported sunglasses from Police. He used an Adidas Cap to protect himself from the sun(he was very conscious about his complexion). A few gold chains on his neck reminded me of our very own Bappi Da.
We got confused if there was a shoot (film shooting) going on near by, but as he introduced himself to us we came know how he got all his riches from. He said he had imposed tax on the Channels (especially Environmental Channels) for shooting in ‘the Amazon’. He said his annual turn over was above 2 Billions(are I.T. ppl listening...)
He was about 2 tax us but I explained to him tht I was a poor PhD student and this expedition was for my thesis and not for commercial purpose.
He also had magical powers with him. He claimed that these powers were given to him by the Tribal Deity......
Kurt was still not sure whether to believe this or not so he asked Elango to prove his magical powers.
Elango was really happy and agreed to do so willingly.
He thought for a while on how to prove it to me and then....
He walked over to Moi-Sne-Menor (We were in the process of think of a suitable name then) and started chanting something like......
Maaaaaaalik o Maaaaaaalik...
Ek Idliiiii Vadddda Sambharrrrrrrrrrr...........
Sadddddddda dooosaaaaaaaaa, reeevaaaaaaa dooosaaaaaaaaa, cheeeeeeeeeeeeseeeeeee massssssalllla dooosaaaaaaaaa...
Chatttttttni, sammbharrrr, more chatniiiiii, more chatniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii..........
Hearing the chants Mr.Moiz turned and started running towards me along with Dr.Snehal.
Soon the chants where over and Elango looked at me with a sheepish smile.
By now Mr.Moiz & Dr.Snehal were standing behind me n we all were dumbstruck as to wht had happened.
Soon we heard a faint voice.....
(To be contd…)

I know what you all are thinking about this new post, but let me clear your doubts if any. This post is not abt the 'Discovery' channel or the NASA spaceship....
Before starting, let me tell you what led me to write this post.
In my thesis for my PhD degree I was supposed to write about the animals found in the jungles of Amazon. For this I took advice from my
We had a very tiring trip. By the time the trip came to an end I had enough material for my thesis. It was our last day of the trip. We were completely tired and wanted to wrap things up as quickly as possible and return back home from the interiors of the Amazon. On our way back Mr. Moiz (the Environmentalist) found something interesting. He called out to us (literally yelled) to have a look at the thing of his interest. After a while we all were looking at it with stunned expressions. We had never seen anything like it before. It was a beauty of Nature.
Sure this Discovery would have made Mr. Charles Darwin a proud man today.
So, Friends am glad to inform that there has been a new addition to the Kingdom Animalia.
About the Creature:-
The creature closely resembles a Caterpillar, but is much larger in size (maybe 10-12 feet in size). The main attraction of the creature is its Eyes. That's the reason why we were hooked onto it .We have named it Moi-Sne-Menor, a small tribute to us for such a great Discovery. We were lucky enough to find a baby Moi-Sne-Menor and even captured it on Camera(plz. find the attached the photo). Being green in color it was camouflaged with leaf so nicely that we didn't even notice it. It was feasting on the leaf as if it hadn't eaten since 10 yrs. We even made a video of it feasting on the leaves. Finally, when we had enough footage for our Discovery and the channel too (yes we will be airing the documentary if they agree to pay half of the ad money that they will earn when the premiere and reruns of the documentary will be aired ), we waved good-bye to our new found friend, who is still waiting to being recognized.
We need to check if we need to create a new Sub-Kingdom for Moi-Sne-Menor.
Will keep you updated if we happen to find any ‘New Mysteries of the World’.
Bye for now
Final Yr. PhD

Am glad to announce that this is OFFICIALLY my first 'NON-Football' blog.
This blog is just a small thought that had crossed my mind a few minutes back, so thought to write it down.
As all of you might be aware of that Salman Khan was sentenced for 5 years of imprisonment.The news is being flashed everywhere, every news channel is showing footages of Salman being taken away n things related to it.....
Meanwhile Salman's mother has been hospitalized after she heard about her son's arrest.
My Viewpoint on the Issue:
Yeah!!! I know, that Salman had killed two of the 'Endangered Species', but the point is just because he's a big star people are trying to get into the limelight by projecting him as a brutal cold blooded murderer. Every single person is trying to get something for them by getting involved in this issue.
My point is that there are so many 'Endangered species' being killed by common people :
- Tribe’s kill animals for their daily needs(for Roti n Kapdha).
- Villagers kill animals(Yes the 'Endangered species') for their monetary benefits.
- In some parts of the country 'people' are murdered in broad daylight.
All these go un-noticed. I mean there should be an equal punishment for all, be it Salman/a nomad/a villager.
I feel the 5 year sentence is a bit too harsh.
A one year sentence and a heavy fine would have been enough...
Am not supporting Salman for his immoral act, but i feel he's being made a scapegoat for no reason.
I think that stardom is like a double edged sword n tht's the way it is.......

Plz dont start thinking that this blog will contain posts on football only.
Am not able to think of any topic, so just trying to kill time by writing a new blog on the match that i saw yesterday night.
I must say it was worth being awake till 2.45 am.
Barca played well and won the match 2-0
Benefica were under pressure from the start, maybe coz they were playing an away match.
It's really tough for any team to play Barcelona @ their home gorund and Benefica was no exception.
They(Barca) were really hunting for the goals from the start.
But they had to wait till the 16th min of the match for their firat goal.
When Eto'o made a cross from the right wing towards the center, where Larson n Ronaldniho were waiting for the ball.
Larson faked as if he's gonna hit it and let the ball go thru to Ronaldniho, and he(Ronaldniho) doesn't miss any goal from that close distance.
He hit the first nail in Benefica's coffin, the other & the FINAL nail was hit by Eto'o.
It(the goal) came in the dying minutes of the game, when Benefica was trying very hard to get the equalizer and after the second goal they knew it was the end of the road for them.
When the ref blew his whistle to indicate the full time 2-0 it was.
A hard fought game it was till the end.
Better Luck next time Benefica.
In the other quaterfinal that was played simultaneously Arsenal drew with Juventus, but won on aggregate 2-0. For a change Juventus was playing like an EPL team and Arsenal was playing like an Italian team. A pathetic match i must say.
Except for Pavel Nedved(frm Juventus) who played hard for his team n in the end had to leave the field with a Red card.
One of the worst matches played this year. i will require atleast 2 more posts to describe the match, but no am not gonna do tht, i want to forget it as soon as possible.
Neways EPL fans Arsenal is in the Semi's :)

Am back again. This time am gonna talk abt this topic which has been haunting me for a long time. Everytime i try to forget it, some unfortunate events happen and the thoughts are back to haunt me.
What are these events? Most you might be thinking by now.
Let me get to the point and make things clearThe fact is that i have a soft corner for the EPL (English Premier League)
Everytime i watch an UEFA Championship/ UEFA Cup match and i see an EPL team perform poorly, i get really sad.
What is their problem?
Why can't the EPL teams out perform the Spanish/Italian League teams?
I was really happy last year when an EPL team (
Coz most of the time they(EPL teams) get knocked out in the Group of 16/Quarter's/Semi's
only a few make it to the finals, but hardly a few of them win.
The level of their game is poor when compared to those of their counterparts.
They don't have the fire in them when they are playing in the field.
Spanish/Italian league matches are so competitive.
They put in their heart n soul, they dive, they push, they commit fouls, they take cards (not the Archie ones) ,etc.....
But in EPL they play a clean match, they rarely commit fouls expect for some.
Will they ever rise the level of their game & match that of their competitors?
I hope someday they will leave their professionalism and get to playing real hardcore football, but i guess that the charm of EPL - professionalism
Neways i'll keep cheering for the EPL teams especially "CHELSEA", until i have more strong reasons to stop cheering for them

This is d first ever blog that i am writing.
So please feel free to point out my mistakes if any.....
Now tht the formality is over, lets get to business.
Why did he select this name for his blog?
What does this blog mean?
Does it even mean nething?
Am sure these were some of the questions that some of you might have had in ur mind when you saw this URL/Link, rite
To start i'll tell you something abt me.
There are only three things that i love in my life
- Rock (not the Rock Stones but Rock Music :) )
- Friends n Family
As most of you might have guessed it by now.
This blog is a tribute to my FIRST love that is football.
What does FUTSAL mean?
Futsal is the indoor version of association football (soccer) that is officially sanctioned by football's international governing body, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), as well as the Asociacion Mundial de Futsal (AMF). Its name is derived from the Portuguese phrase futebol de salão, meaning football (soccer) for (playing in) a large room.
Now if you all think that this blog will contain Blog's only about Football, then you are wrong.
This will contain all the possible things that a normal blog has......
yet another blogger
