    Nice to see the Weekly Top 10! Hope it becomes a regular.

    Here are some..
    * Ford was worried that Chandu Borde or one of old fellas would call him as Graham Honda or Graham Bell.
    * Ford could not bear the thought of listening to any more of Ravi’s clichés.
    * The bookies fearing that India would become consistent under Ford, made him a counter-offer he could not resist.

    1. Someone of Asian origin offered him a drink when BCCI announced he was selected
    2. They made him meet Mr Pawar after he was selected

    So, you have taken up the suggestion seriously….good……When I meant job change, I meant that you quit your current job and take up the second one. So, when is the resignation 😉
