One fails to understand why the millionaire crickekters are being showered with crores of rupees and acres of land by the political heads of the democratic governments ? millions of people are being forced to pay through direct and indirect taxes to these cricketers ..There is lot to be done on the education , health , agriculture front .
I enjoy full World Cup Matches. I send my cingratulation to every members of Indian Cricket Team, who have given us proud & become World No. 1 in Cricket World. JLSharma, H-20, Vikaspuri, New Delhi-110018 / 9958099854
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 go

goes on in that mind and heart of his.
He has single handedly lifted 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 when India loses. 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.
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.
It was 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 and they did. This is not just a game, and he is not just a sportsman. Its much more than this. Words fail here..
As Virat rightly said: Tendulkar has carried the burden of nation for 21 years; It was time we carried him.

A perfect gift for Our Dear Sachin...What a legend? A quiet, thoughtful yet a dangerous and furious personality when it comes to centre of the cricket field. As rightly said, No words to express, because he is beyond this world....Thank you for making us privileged and taking birth in our country.
