It is a sense of pride nor is it a sense of achievement !? You call it either way but we can place our(India) head in pride after the recent terror attacks and the down swing of the economy and landslide of sen sex. I am blogging minutes after the pride of India Sachin Tendulkar smashing the ball to a boundary to make India defeat England and sachin bagged another century (41st in test alone).
I have shelved my idea of saluting cricketer of the century Sir Sachin Tendulkar through my blog for quite some time with only one dream that i will do that after Tendlya brings the next world cup to India. I grew up watching him play cricket and tried to imitate his attitude not just in the field(Oh God! how many times i have walked in to a cricket ground thinking me like sachin..ha ha) but off the field also. A down to earth cricketer who is a learner all the time. To him, Leadership is Action and not Position.
I saw the first test match between England Vs India, for the past five days with a firm belief that India will win and Sachin will score a century or i should say i wanted sachin to score a century…He did that and that’s the message for the world.No one can stop INDIA.Terrorism,terrorists nor the economy down swing…we will re surge and conquer the world..not just in cricket but terrorism also.Mumbais message to the world..We are born to win and to lead…Mumbai is the heart of India,the people there portray that in their attitude..let it be sports,corporate,entertainment,writers…oh god they are articulate, communicative,talented,down to earth and they also embrace talents and friends.
Mumbai gave Sir Sachin to Indian cricket and this mumbai master blaster who runs through cricket for the past 19 years..goosh..he seems to be a run machine and his thirst for runs has not diminished in spite of the media speculating this Icons retirement ..He is not a politician,statesmen film star or a religious leader but a true blue cricketer who is giving heart and soul to Indian Cricket.He is such a powerful prodigy India has ever produced through a sport..i always quote Cricket is a religion in India and here Sachin is GOD. If we need to eradicate terrorists the means are education,sports,music and remove poverty and we need strict laws.
Hey, before i get neck deep into nostalgia about sachin..let me sign off by saying kudos to the English cricketers for not calling off the tour and putting up a brave total ..Hats OFF!!!
