The game of table tennis is easy, that is, if you know how and when to smash that little ball with all your might! I never seem to get the timing right. Losing game after game either because the ball was too low for a forehand smash or too high for a back hand one... and then there is this concern about my partner if we play a doubles game, with the increased number of stakes to the only table at office, people have forgotten that there ever existed a singles version of the game. We have to wait in queues to get a chance to occupy the space behind one quarter of the table and play a game of patience ( read: waiting for the opposition to get frustrated with rallying and smash the ball into the net). Agression is totally lost and its always a game of patience and placement. In a working environment, even in a game like TT we end up playing the thinking game; only yesterday while going for dinner we were complaining how our natural games have changed and how we are supressing our instincts to play a safe game... a hint of how life changes in the bigger world, eh?
