Breaking records is no big deal for this little man from Mumbai. Cricket is his passion ! Often called the God Of Indian Cricket. This master blaster is here to justify all the tags ! Yeah ! Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar just scored a double century against South Africa at Gwalior in the 2nd ODI. As Millions of eyes glued on the television screens and thousands in the stadium witnessed the genius of world cricket took a single and reached the magic figure.

We are indeed lucky to be in the present when Sachin Tendulkar is dominating the world Cricket. Where are the people who told it’s time for him to retire? Where are the smart news reporters and columnists who wrote it is the end of Sachin’s era? This one was for all of them. Sachin was so young today that it looked like Sachin’s era has just begun ! At a strike rate of 139.0, getting to the best ever score in International Cricket ,never looked like a herculean task for this man. He just sailed through brilliantly. Oh Boy !! It was a fest for the eyes. Shots all over ! punishing every single bowler. I bet no South African player would ever forget this innings. Be not surprised if any of them complain like Shane Warne that they see Sachin as a nightmare.

Sachin is on a dream run. Almost all the record in world cricket was tagged in his name long back. And now so he is into the business of creating new records. What a form he is in ! After four consecutive test centuries and a recent 175 mammoth against   Australia….. this one against South Africa ! Read those lines again, it’s not Bangladesh or Zimbabwe. We are talking about Australia and South Africa. Oye Sachin ! Oye !!

And Team India commendable performance and back up. Dinesh Karthik scoring to 70’s Dhoni in 60’s and Pathans quick 36, gave India the extra momentum to reach 401-3.  I have made this post just after Sachin’s Innings It does not at this point of time really bother me or rather does not bother at least a million of other fans, whether South Africa would make up to that target. For us It is SACHIN and just Sachin !! For at least some time we saw people even abusing Dhoni who was actually playing well for India’s sake but was not giving Tendulkar strike in the last three overs. Another moment of tension was when Sachin ran for a second run when he was in 170’s and just manged to get back to the crease !

I feel jealous of the spectators at Gwalior, who watched this great innings live in the stadium.  But definitely watching the same in St. Johns Medical College Recreation Room was no less fun either. It was just about being wild once Sachin crossed 170. Myself, Nitin and a few other friends were supposed to go and cheer for my batch team who was playing an Inter Class Volleyball Match. I feel glad that I missed the Volleyball Match. If not I would not have witnessed history in making……

Thank you Sachin for being in the game making such a huge presence in our times !

We never know
Or fully realize
How sweet and kind our parents are,
How gentle and how wise

We simply take for granted,
From day to passing day,
Each sacrifice they make for us
In their own loving way.

But then we grow and finally learn,
The way that children do,
How much their love has really meant,
How thoughtful they’ve been, too –

And so this comes with all the thanks
You both deserve and more.
For there aren’t two dearer parents
Than the one this blog is for,

Happy 24th Anniversary Mom and Dad!

He pursued a graduation in Botony from the college of Alberta. He was not only a remarkable comedian but also a good director and screen writer. His best work in direction was “valsalyam” with Mammotty.

He was one of the actors in Malayalam whose comedy on screen was so marvelous. I was often so inspired by him that I have ended up imitating him when I am on Mad Ads stage ! Will miss him on Screen !
