Cricket ka Devta.
But we all know why such clichés have been coined.
When he bats, I switch on my TV and switch off my life.
I remember this particular family vacation, I was 12, I think. We were on our way to some hillstation.
so we had to board a local train for 2 hours. And the train was made to halt because - Sachin Tendulkar was batting at 92 not out. The passengers, the railway officials, everyone on the train waited for Sachin to complete his century.
This 5'5'' master blaster, can make time stop in India!
Here, its quite acceptable to hurl at top notch politicians, but, dare you point a finger at Sachin.
The joy he bring to a billion cricket crazy overgrown bachhas, a million of his countrymen, and the way he handles all the adulation, the expectations with such humility and grace. what a genius.
underneath the helmet, that unruly curly hair, inside that head, there is something we don’t know, something beyond scientific measure. Something that allows him to roam a territory of sport that, forget us, even those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot even comprehend.
This post to the man we love,
The man we all want to be.
Ps - This post deserves only one tag.
