An Impending Attack II?

A question mark now hangs over the whole of Middle East

There is a reason why we have used the same title but it is a continuation of what we wrote acouple of weeks ago on Saif's Den. In fact, if we are honest, this isn't exactly a continuation as much as it is an after-thought of what we wrote in that article of ours. We argued that the coalition between US-UK-Israel with the assistance of UN Security Council would try to win favour from other nations to attack the facilities of Iran's nuclear installments on the pretext that Iran poses a direct threat to Israel's existence.

Australia's tour of South Africa 2011

Both the captains contemplating how to end the series on a high

Never has there been a dull moment in cricket when these two teams meet together. Most of cricket experts and commentators believe that, and so do we as cricket-lovers. None of us can forget the 1999 World Cup Semi-final between the two sides, or the record chase of 434 by South Africa in 2006, or the 1997/98 epic Carlton & United Series (which also featured New Zealand) or this Australia's tour in 2011.

The Boom Boom Show

Customary X-man celebration of Boom Boom

One can't be really sure about the origins of this oft-repeated phrase “Boom Boom” - perhaps it was the evergreen David Lloyd, renowned English commentator, to first use it – but whoever coined it, now this is by what we name our very own Shahid Khan Afridi, as Boom Boom Afridi. And Boom Boom he did in the 4th one day international against Sri Lanka to clinch the match as well as the series for Pakistan.

In A Dark House

This time in the week we look to post one of the reviews of a novel that we had been reading, or rather read is the right word.

By now you must have got the hint that we read - and then review - crime-thrillers and this is no different as well. Today we have a review of a novel by a Brit author, Deborah Crombie, who has over the years have enthralled her readers with her crime thriller series featuring two respectable detectives, rich in characterisation, intricate description and multi-layered plot.

2013 Nissan GT-R

Yes, the Godzilla's back. The car touted as the “baby Veyron” of the motoring world has, since its inception, never stopped to evolve. The makers of the GT-R have said categorically that they'll keep on evolving their original GT-R to match with its supercar competitors in this demanding world of power and speed. But to that, add Japanese precision and we have 2013 Nissan GT-R. They've already lived up to their promises.

A Mad Day at the Office

They say “strange things happen in cricket,” but trust me they don't happen more stranger than this.

On this day, 10th November on a pleasant, yet less threatening, afternoon in Newlands Park, Cape Town, South Africa, the world witnessed a day of cricket of unbelievable proportions. It was already shaping up into a fantastic Test match with a sublime hundred by the Australian captain, Michael Clarke, staying unbeaten last night to resume the day at 107 with a tail-ender, Peter Siddle, yet to open his account and score of 214 for the loss of 8 wickets. But little did we know that the 2nd day of this Test match itself might have so much to offer.

Sri Lanka's Tour to Pakistan – 2011

Younus Khan celebrating his 18th Test Century

We are aware of the fact that the title doesn't exactly sound apt for the reason best known to us, but whichever way we look at it, it was an away-from-home home series for Pakistan and Pakistan has won a series after quite some time.
Pakistan went up one-nil in the 2nd Test match, played in Dubai which we reckon was a proper 3-Test series between the two sides, unlike those meaningless two-test series which didn't eke out a result if both the tests ended up in a draw or won by either side.

An Impending Attack?

Since the start of this year, things have been rather messy, though in most parts of the world, but precisely talking about this region – the Middle East.


Karin Slaughter was already a big name in the world of crime fiction novels with her high-acclaimed and equally popular Grant County Series. But with Triptych, set in Atlanta, Georgia, she comes back home, where she grew up.
