Life is bizarre at times especially in show bizz.The " GODFATHER" set the trend for mobster films across the Globe with its stupendous success. Not surprised that this film was produced and directed due to a chance factor by the young 29 year old Francis Ford Coppola and not as a sure hit movie of its era.A lottery movie. Ahoy ! That's life and the movie business.

Thanks to my profession as a " Marine Engineer " on ship's that I got to visit Japanese ports in the 1980's and 1990's .The first thing about Japan that caught my attention was the " PACHINKO PARLOURS" not seen in any other country I visited during my infancy voyages at sea.Was amazed at seeing men in crowded parlors silently absorbed in a type of ball game ." Pachinko" is Japan's unique identity as a Nation .

As a addictive sports fan and a lifelong fitness fanatic living in Mumbai sincerely hope that Neeraj.Chopra's gold medal at Tokyo 2020 is the beginning of renaissance in Indian track and field events.We Indians are otherwise totally devoted to the sport of " CRICKET" and most cricketers are dollar multimillionaires through the sport.Hope in future besides Neeraj.Chopra Indian track and field has a few athletic dollar millionaires, once considered a dream before Neeraj.Chopra got India its first Olympic gold medal in " Track & Field".

Having worked as a " Marine Engineer" on various ships from 1983 to 2006 have transited the Suez Canal numerous times .Amazed at this freak accident that brought the importance of transport of goods through shipping and the Suez Canal into World headlines .The compensation demanded is as long as the length of the " EVER GIVEN " and how will the owners pay the same ? Could definitely put the company into bankruptcy and seems a lengthy court battle is in progress and only hope the ship doesn't become junk in the process.
