To quench my thirst for watching some exiting International Badminton action, I would be going to Hyderabad to see the Indian Open 2008 Badminton Grand Prix. Some of the world’s best are in action, for the first time in India and I hope to have 3 amazing days away from the routine life. I have also planned to stay at the same place where most of the players would be putting up… and maybe get to mix up with a few of those!!!

Lets see how the Indian contingent fares in front of the home crowd. Chetan Anand and Saina Nehwal are probably the best hopes we have. I hope they are still around by the time I get there tomorrow.
Will also try to manage a weekend long run with some Hyderabad runners. It is time that I become serious about the Bangalore World 10K, otherwise there is no point in dragging myself to Bangalore for just the sake of doing it.
