It ain't over till its over

Every generation has its own legends/stories... Mine has Pottermania.... The previous generation had Star Wars. What creates these hugely popular series, popular? Experts would say that it is the Socio-economic situations that may exist at that time. What do you think?
Anywayz, I had this reflection when I went to see "Star Wars Episode III : Revenge of the Sith". Reviews apart, critics apart, I believe the movie ends up pretty neatly the Star Wars saga.. or it just links up the Star Wars saga, however you look at it. As usual my eagerness to watch this movie caused a few pretty odd glances. I believe the quote which says that "If it is not good at the end, then it is not the end". The Saga was not complete, the movie made it complete.

Your best shot?

A typical musing of mine, when I am whiling away my time in some physical sport, is whether I can achieve great heights in this sport. Looking at the time that is spent by my peers in this game say a ping pong or cricket, I wonder if I could be that good if I spend the same amount of time?
Some say that a certain person is "gifted". Does this gift extend only to one sport or activity? Does it transcend across different realms? Could Einstein be a great economist, had economics been his choice of weapon? Can Tendulkar be the best in Baseball, had he been exposed to that game?


Creating a blog is the "in" thing now. So, Let me jump into the fray too. With these ideas, let me start off this blog.
