    Hats off !! Sachin is God !

    HARSHA BHOGLE on India-SA match

    Remember when you failed an examination. How many people recall that, your class, friends, relatives? You failed to make it to the IITs or IIMs. Who remembers. How many times have you had the feeling of being the best in your class, school , university, state….., you failed to get a visa stamped this quarter…, you missed a promotion this year…, how did it feel when you dad told you in your early twenties that you are good for nothing…..and now your boss tell you the same...

    You keep introspecting and go into a shell when people most of whom don't matter a dime in your life criticize you, back bite you, make fun of you. You are left sad and shattered and you cry when your own kin scoffs at you. You say I am feeling low today. It takes a lot from us to come out of these everyday situations and move on. A lot??? really?

    Now here's a man standing on the third man boundary in the last over of a world cup match. The bowler just has to bowl sensibly to win this game. What the man at the boundary sees is 4 rank bad bowls bowled without any sense of focus, planning or regret. India loses, yet again in those circumstances when he has done just about everything right.

    He does not cry. Does not show any emotion. Just keeps his head down and leaves the field. He has seen these failures for 22 years now. And not just his class, relatives, friends but the whole world has seen these failures. We are too immature to even imagine what goes on in that mind and heart of his. That's why I would never want to be Sachin.

    True, he has single handedly lifted to moods of this entire nation umpteen number of times. He has been an inspiration to rise above our mediocrity. Nobody who has ever lifted the willow even comes close to this man's genius. His dedication and metal strength is unparallel. This is specially for those people who would have made fun of him again last night when India lost. They are people who are mediocre in their own lives. Who just scoff at others to create cheap fun. Who have lived in a small hole throughout their lives and thought they have seen the oceans.

    Think about the man himself. He is 37 years of age. He has been playing almost non stop for 22 years. The way he was running and diving around the field last night would have put 22 year olds to shame. The way he played the best opening quickies in the world was breathtaking. He just keeps getting better which is by the way humanly impossible. Its not for nothing that people call him GOD.

    But still I don't want to be in those shoes. We struggle in keeping our monotonous lives straight, lives which affect a limited number of people. Imagine what would be the magnitude of the inner struggle for him, pain both mental and physical, tears that have frozen with time, knees and ankles and every other joint in the body that is either bandaged or needs to be attended to every night, eyes that don't sleep before a big game, bats that have scored 99 international tons and still see expectations from a billion people.

    And he just converts those expectations into reality. We watch in awe, feel privileged.
    Well I think its time that his team realizes that enough is enough. They have an obligation, not towards their country alone but towards sachin. They need to win this one for him. Stay assured that he himself will still deliver and leave no stone unturned to make sure India wins this cup.
    This is not just a game, and he is not just a sportsman. Its much more than this. Words fail here.....

    Hi Harsha,

    Thanks for giving the information about Sachin. Its really amazing.
    I am also fan of Sachin. whatever we can say about Sachin, it is always less. At the age of 37, when he comes on ground all the people who are watching that match and think that one more record will be broken by him today.

    "SACHIN is GOD of CRICKET"

    Regards,


    Shashivardhan.

    Hi Kannan,

    Yes you are right Sachin is a God of cricket. People respect Sachin for its dedication towards the cricket. He is a genuine cricket player and made a history of such big world records. Sure that India won this world cup and dedicated to god of cricket. Really I proud that Sachin is Marathi and being a icon for world.
