About Me

Engineer by profession, open-minded, loves fantasy, legends and other fables, music, language and cricket.

When I started rambling here, several months ago, Indian cricket had started a revival from the Chappell-era abyss, which caused me to rave so much about it, that this turned into a cricket blog. Much has changed in Indian cricket since then. This blog follows Indian cricket, with laurels on its high, spit in disgrace and angst in struggle.

    Hey minerva…chk dis out…..http://ishmeet.wordpress.com/

  6. vmminerva says:

    Yeah, I read that on the news and I agree with ishmeet. However, this is the type of stuff I think is unnecessary to point out now, given that the series is over.

  7. kvhurin says:

    i know…but u know what..Rowling’s missing Harry bigtime..thats why she is saying all these things!

  8. kvhurin says:

    btw can u plz change the name of me blog to My Reflections

  9. vmminerva says:

    I agree kvhurin with your point abt JKR. It would be hard for her to let go of Harry wouldn’t it, after all the years?
    Btw, I have changed the name to kvhurin’s Reflections.

    Glad you stopped by, Subbu, and thanks for the kind words.

  22. Isaac says:

    Like the blog alot, thanks for the blogroll, I’ve also blog rolled you.

  23. Sue says:

    Last month we launched a successful new cricket web site http://www.cricketwrite.com The site is for people who want to write about their love of the game around the world – it is their chance to be creative – we publish their stories – we have purposely not created a news site or a blog.

    We are aware of your entertaining site and wondered if you would be prepared to add cricketwrite.com as one of the cricket site links?

    Also, we would at any time be willing to publish any creative writing of your own or your fellow ‘blogers’. We particularly want to hear from people outside of the UK.

    Thank you for your help.

  24. vmminerva says:

    @Isaac, glad to see you around. Thanks for the kind words.

  25. vmminerva says:

    @Sue, glad you found my writing entertaining. I would be happy to add your website on to list of links and will also like to explore opportunities to write for your website too. Perhaps we could take this on an email thread. Thank you.

  26. Sathya says:

    Do you have the media files of the madurai serial episodes 1-90???? if you have that please let me know , i want to store that permanently in my hard disk. Thanks

    Hi ,

    I just came across your site https://vmminerva.wordpress.com and I found it very interesting.

    As an online marketing consultant I am interested in discussing a number of potential opportunities regarding your website.

    Our partnership options include:

    * Sponsorship opportunities
    * Providing free, professional and relevant content for your site.
    * Purchasing advertising space.

    I saw on the site that you were looking for an Aussie cricket blogger, and we have several of them on our content team, so maybe that’s an idea…

    I would like to discuss this further at your earliest convenience. Please feel free to respond with a phone number and I will contact you directly. Alternatively we can just communicate via this email.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    I hope you are well. We represent a high quality online sports community website and are looking to increase awareness of the site by advertising on a select few quality websites. We have identified vmminerva.wordpress.com as one of the site that we would like to potentially advertise with. We are interested in any advertising you may have available and would prefer that the advertising is in the form of a review or contextual link within an article that can be provided by yourself or us.

    Our client is also running a new feature on their site in the run up to the IPL and we are looking for a select few sites to take part in the promotion of this. We cannot give too much away at this point but it is an exciting addition to their website.

    Please let me know if you are interested in helping.

    Thanks and have a great day.

    Please try the mobile cricinfo service from snaptu
    m.snaptu.com/cricinfo in the phone browser

    You can use twitter from snaptu and spread some cricket banter. But most importantly, you can read ‘VM’s Random Ramblings’ in the News Reader when you’re out and about using the search url option to put it on the main screen.

    Enjoy – and excuse the rather commercial interruption!

    Btw did you just see that first over in the WI v Aus match !!!!!!!!!!!
