The end of the racing season always brings about changes and news. Some good, some not so…

In Moto GP there is talk about going to a 1000cc capacity power plant, what the reasoning behind such an idea is, is beyond me. Already the 800s are setting times quicker that the older 990s did and the much touted “cost reducing efforts” has cut away the much needed testing that new riders so require, most new riders need two years of crashing before they are able to ride their 220+ bhp beasts competitively too, so why go to 1000cc?

 During these austere times nothing deserved the recognition and awards at the Oscars more than Slum dog Millionaire. Raising hopes and encouraging dreams, the movie created by lesser known artists and kids from the slums of Mumbai just seemed to provide the perfect ingredient. AR Rehman’s unusual and fascinating music creations turned focus to the fact there is room for new ideas and fresh faces to make it to the top in a field surrounded by the largest movie industry in the world, dominated by huge names. Call it the influence of dreams!!
