Barack Obama or Mitt Romney



Obama or Romney?
The electorate will settle on the Denver Debate, American people have the say come the polling day.
I watched the debate with bathed breath, Obama is the President, Romney the Governor and Mr president got a punch, but focused. Obama looked tired troubled nevertheless, the oval office has a lot to bestow for four years battling the recession, War in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Arab spring the Syrian crisis, unemployment this must have taken toll to the man who has, in his leadership brought change from Washington to West Bengal, from New York to Nairobi, Alabama to Aurangabad .A message of hope. He has worked so hard than any other president in recent history .He is a man to deliver America from the troubles and tribulations.
Obama was not relaxed as Romney but that’s what it takes to make a turbulent time in office when republicans votes down your proposal because of partisanship, when the other see the log in your eyes and shot down you plans, he unites and you divide. It is the change that begun in Washington that needs you and me to work for a better world, where education will be for all the poor and rich alike. Affordable healthcare for the poor and no exploitation from health insurance who reap where they have not sown..
He is a good orator, speech maniac but in the Denver debate ,Mitt Romney gave a punch and capitalized on what Obama said ,he bring into play and choose his word carefully but no specifics ion how he will deal with the proposed plans he intend to make in tax cuts and defense only generalization its 8 am here in India and I still have confidence in Barack Obama he can deliver he will make the world a safer place if Republicans and democrats work together a safer America,there would be  no hounding for the tyrants, dictators and the presidents who cling to power till they die in harness ,
Democracy has risen and the world is changing and has altered during the reign of Obama, nevertheless we still have a mile to travel for those with conflicting ideology.

Flower Behind a girl's letf or right ear

Romantic fairy tale that men ought to know when a girl prettify herself with  Gerberas flower behind her right ear  gives the impression of being  in search for a boyfriend or rather a lover .
The human heart beats 72 times a minute but in this case when the girl walks in town with a flower in her right ear probably it will beat more than that because she knows when a man glance at her and the flowers then that’s the moment .Luckily many youngsters or rather gentlemen and even girls are not familiar with the symbolism of the flower either. A mythical, affectionate license. Romantic island. Love has flowered
Romance since time immemorial, I can recall those days in Kenya when young girls would place flowers around there ponytails and it was breathtaking and in this age of alternate media the ever rising status of relationship marshal new meaning.
When a young woman adorns a flower on her left ear means she is taken or in relationship, that’s where her heart lies.
The romantic myth of flowers behind the ear is more common in Hawaii than in any other place but luckily I spotted some in India just 2011 and 2012.
The kind and colour of the flowers doesn't matter but the most common flowers are gerberas, hibiscus roses, lilies, plumeria.
A girl beautify herself with her favorite flower, but beauty lies in the beholders’ eye, attractiveness in the abstract cannot obstruct men I am watching you. Its beauty that shine forth and one befall the center of attraction.
Sunset beyond her eyes.

Chelsea

Didier Drogba, the final ingredient to Chelsea’s delicacy. Thomas Muller thought they had the Champions league cup in amass, only to become conscious that he is a doubting Thomas a revisit to the old times. Drogba the Ivorian  trumps again and for those with qualms caught a glimpse the cup being lifted in Allianz Arena.
In Drogba’s own words, “I think today was written long time ago”
Oh! I wrote it long time ago in 2007 in the East African Standard newspaper that one day , our quest will come to fruition and through Barcelona’s road to finals we made it. The tears of Moscow wiped away, the swiftness of Peter Cech made way, to a dejected Bayern fans.
Pedro Pinto if CNN said, ‘final for the ages’ it’s a cup that takes decades to touch.
We planted flowers at Allianz arena and the blue flowers germinated from memories of freezing Moscow to breezing in Munich.
The cock of the walk, the team at the roof of the world. For the last ten years-tears, tension but finally tranquility and finally my reward as a Chelsea craze came not by wind but by fire. Didier Drogba baptized Bayern Munich in their backyard.
The ultimate victory for Roman Abramovic- Army shot at arms length, put out of your mind the beauty of the game and set out for victory, Chelsea played what they had to, tactical match.
Thank you Chelsea, veni vidi vici!!!!

Manchester City



The blue moon rose, a time bomb, amid speculation of their down fall. Turbulence gives way to truculence, Manchester City nearly fell but not,Sergio Aguerro a legend forever, the Argentinean had Maradona in mind-now or never .My tears not in distress but sweet victory that will linger in my reminiscence pockets’. Manchester United was waiting for a committal but they witnessed a coronation they themselves were cremated. The raucous neighbors have become rockers of the City of Manchester; the throne is theirs, a team to reckon in the land (England)
 A red face Manchester United and what a revolve of events from the blue rimmed fantasy, the old names in the legend book of Manchester city will never be deleted a new gold leaf page for the 1968 boys…
What a blue castle in the sky to witness in a Chelsea shirt Asia, Abu Dhabi not far from here I can hear the desert drums its  triumph for -Sheikh Mansour –Army.As the Roman Abramovic Army –Chelsea bought success the blue is blazing once more
Goals galore, what a stunner.90+5=Manchester United entombment
 Being a Chelsea diehard ten years and still mounting strong, from the memories of rising and conquering the blue skies Chelsea is still the cock of the walk in English Premier League; those who doubt let them ask Barcelona from 2005.They have the coverage for you.
However, the subject matter is the silence of the guns and the Red devils buried alive in their hopes that Manchester City will plummet by the leg at Queens Park Rangers (QPR)
The final moments of their funeral rose out of the blue, the casket blown by 3 incredible minutes that never will, a sweet revenge for what the did to Chelsea in Luzhniki stadium 2008 in  Moscow
Emotions from the Etihad stadium to down town Aurangabad India, A stark reminder that October 23rd 2011 6:1 thrashing of Manchester United was the turning point of the English League, Oh! Simply stunning, simply mind-boggling, I just can’t find words.
That was a golden leaf for the 2011, what a reward for the last ten years I have been watching EPL, from South East Asia  I utter THANK YOU MANCINI,THANK YOU MANCITY.
From a Chelsea craze, a message to Manchester United, suicide to the wire what did you feel, for me I would have left the City of Manchester  never to look back!!
Veni Vidi Vici.-Joshua Boitt
