I've had the priviledge of having grown up in America and lived for extended periods in England and Australia - so I have a passion for cricket and the world game (football/soccer) as well. I can't bear all of these cross-sport comparisons with Jordan by Americans, as they're all such different sports. Even the commonly spouted assertion that Jordan was actually basketball's Don Bradman holds little water.
Lara for all his foibles was a brilliant cricketer, as is Tendulkar and Gilchrist. Are any of them either the same or "better" than everyone else? No.
also if he was that great he would've been the no.1 rated batsman in the world(not Chanderpaul). .like Lara was when he retired,Sachin is great but he could never be Lara and everyone here knows that,its like comparing a reall reliable Lexus to a wild exotic sometimes trouble giving rare exotic Ferrari,well Lara's that Ferrari!! not Sachin. .he's the reliable high mileage lexus(something like Chanderpaul). .and their easier to come by than that rare Ferrari !!
can't believe how low class some ppl are here,this is'nt about sachin,shish,you guys are so insecure,Lara did yo'lla big favour by retiring,thats the only reason you even hear about Sachin right now,because he passed Lara's run tally taking about 30 more games to do it though.. .you guys are pathetic !!!!!!!
Now The time has come when we youth have to decide what type of politicians or government we need.im sure the educated people are casting their votes rightly but what abt the people who r poor or below the poverty line which holds a large no of section of our country castes their vote for any1 for just mere sum of money.i do not blame them then we shld light them how important their vote is. mark my words the day when a common person will vote according to the interest of nation we will get a stable & peaceful govt.people like RSS,Bajrang dal , bjp shlould be banned.persons like varun ghandhi who have such hatred towards muclims do we expect him to see in power.modi the person who was resposible for the killing of so many innocent person in gujrat..do we expect to see him in power.l.k advani the person who was master mind of demolotion of babri masjid.do we want to see him in power..answer is a big No.... the bjp party has always played dirty politics in the name of religion.just to get vote bank they always plays with the emotions of hindus sentiments.congress is secular to every1..my dream to see india progressing and be a muslim i pray to allah that 1 day india will be a complete secular country.. i firmly bel tht Mr.Rahul Ghandi could be our next Young prime minister who could run our nation in a very proper systematic manner. he can be our next brack obama.. I wish from my core of heart to rahul ghandhi.god bless u all the best.. keep good work going on...

A young leader may not always be a priority. Pray for someone who does not have the blood of innocent women and children on his hands. Modi does not qualify.
India is 1.2 billion strong. The young may be 200 million. Wish for one who is really qualified.
On the same note, keep the new generation Nehru/Gandhi clan out of power. Let them find a useful day job.
