If Tendulkar is GOD then what is Federer.. Pele..Best..Woods..Giggs..Anand.?? I wud say they are super GODS!
Yesterday's innings of 200 runs at Roopsingh stadium Gwalior by Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar prompted me to stand and just applause in salutation. The entertainment was superb. The ability shown was tremendous. And we all in the office waited for the moment which came on the last third ball of the ultimate over of Indian ( I call it BCCI's team henceforth.) innings. 200. The first 200 recored in ICC's ODI format of cricket. And that too from a Man who people say deserved the most. Lara forgotten, Anwar thrashed ( will later on tell why) and all other people subdued. Work stopped for some time. Sweets distributed. And yes what a relief that finally SRT has done it. Today I receive many mails just about one MAN, and now I am prompted to write this post.
Of late I have avoided writing because I felt that expression of feelings is not really needed. It is on our discretion how we feel. We can not make any body happy and we can not make any one sad. So why express? But I am prompted as I am humane(not compassionate..but meant to be changing actions).
" I have seen GOD. He bats at number four for India." - Matthey Hayden, former member CA cricket team. And most of the cricket lovers and Indian cricket fans agreed, most strongly yesterday only with the above statement and some of 'em told me that yes Sachin is GOD. I too nodded, when I meant, doubt. But does Sachin makes impact on lives who are ending craving of hunger. Or the goverment gives him INR 10 lakhs which could be used for drought hit area near Gwalior. Well later they say they need to take loans!
Amazing is this world But even in sports, people forget very soon the likes of Kapil Dev who helped us get a world cup when we were amatuer in cricket. People forget the likes of Brian Lara who displayed how a person enjoys ball to ball batting. He would have hit a SIX after 196 and got to 200. Even if he would have got out, he wouldn't have regret.
Yes, I accept and I being a fan of SRT for 19+ years now that he is one of greatest sports person. But if he is the best sportsman then what about ROGER FEDERER., TIGER WOODS, M SHUMACHAR and MOHAMMAD ALI. Well sorry me too forgot few big old names. DHYANCHAND - the great hockey player who was offered by Germany! The Black Perl - PELE and the footballing best - GEORGE BEST from Belfast! Ryan Giggs from ManUtd.
Yes, if at all Sachin is GOD lets accept these people named and many more are Super Gods. ! No one is GOD. They are all Men.
(PS: Indian cricket team based on a region called India bordered Pakistan, Bangladesh and China and few more countries is so called INDIAN CRICKET TEAM in which GOVT has no say. BCCI is a private organization which controls it. thought the players are of Indian origin, the coach for past 6 years atleast is not Indian, the psychologists, the physiotherapists and so on are non Indians. The dress is manufactured by NIKE - non Indian company. If some player is injured - they have to go out of India (the place of which people are proud to be of their cricket team)to get fit as INDIA doesn't have the infrastructure to get them fine and the list is long - SO what so Indian about this team .
PS: One person yesterday told me that he is happy more for record of Paki player was broken. I was amazed that he sad that. Anwar was a great player and this disrespect is against sports. he was literally thrashed for doing something which was done first time many years back. Even before his GOD Sachin dared to reach near it. Even Sachin apllauded Anwar
PS: These are just my views and don't intend to offend any one )
