What is common sense? How can you define common sense? For some, common sense would be not taking risks, whereas for some it would be taking the same risk. Who decides what is common sense? If India would not have won the World Cup, then we would have been happy with a 1-0 win over the West Indies. But now the expectations are high? Are we demanding too much? Think about it. Time now to read the Tangy Tuesday Picks from the Indian Blogosphere.
