Andrew checks in: Ek imaandar maidan ke andar

This is my first post since last March, and coincidentally my last post was on the continuing Aussie conspiracy to destroy other teams and remain the champion ream so that they can remain at least financially independent and viable.

Anyway, the saga continues with India’s tour Down Under. The latest theory about the raging racial abuse controversy involving Harbhajan Singh and Andrew Symonds where the former allegedly called the later ‘monkey’ is something like this:

Harbhajan is innocent. He just looked at Andrew and said, ‘teri maa ki…’. Andrew wrongly heard it as ‘monkey’.

I can understand that. However, what I cannot understand is how a person supposedly being proud of being called a roo (as in kangaroo) can be so offended by the word ‘monkey’. At least monkeys, as I knew till now were more closely related to a human being than a kangaroo. Besides, there is nothing remotely racial about the word. Instead, one of the most worshipped Hindu deities is Lord Hanuman who is a monkey. Monkeys are fed and revered in India. Maybe a kangaroo brain missed the details there.

Maybe he won’t be able to miss the 6 differences in details between the two images below.

Well, can you help him out? Can you spot the 6 differences? I give up, I could find only 4 till now. Maybe you can help me as well.

Andrew, you are a great entertainer, a cricket player and a champion. But sorry to say mate, you missed one revolution, that's evolution!

Au revoir folks. This year, the Guru will be regular here. All apologies for my broken promises last year. It had been the worst for me in my entire life. I am glad to get rid of it.
