Movers n Shakers - 1

Few people/incidents hogged the limelight this month, which might cast a bigger shadow in the coming times. Some were individual milestones while some.. simply stones thrown by individuals.

Usually when u start something u dedicate the first offering to GOD right..so here we go.

S R T. New branch of GRT jewellery?? Nope. But no less precious than all the gold in that shop put together. Yup..None other than Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar,
for conquering summit 12k and also becoming the highest test run scorer in history. Guess, whatever changes the format undergo from now on, i really doubt whether there would be any other player, who will hold both ODI and test records together, ever, however long their career maybe. Even if such an unimaginable stuff happens, one wonder whether that person will have the serene calmness with which this man has soaked in all the pressure and comments and criticism and more importantly the glory and still manages to walk on his feet. Of all the praises heaped on him, my personal favourite is from the magazine SPORTSTAR. That magazine usually features the most prolific sports personality of that month on their cover page and once it ran just their masthead "SPORTSTAR" with the following statment.
"The only thing to have appeared on our cover more times than Sachin"!!



For a long time when i had to follow overseas matches of indian cricket only through Hindu and Express. Each morning, which i woke up to read the news of Sachin's exploits had such a refreshing start and i used to feel as if the day has began in right earnest. A sachin 100 and Indian victory was the best dose of morale boost to carry the day. Its such a joy to watch this little man come dancing down the track to loft hapless spinners and pacers alike over their head for a six. Such scenes at times remind me of the Gladiators thrown before the lions during Roman times. The carnage, the power and the mesmerising balance which follows were a treat to watch. Agreed there are better hitters in the game. But a six by Sachin is like watching a Lion devour its prey with scalpel. Belligerent beauty at its best.





People might question his form..the labourous ardor with which he went about knocking off the final 1000 runs and might be questioning on when he is going to retire. Well..so is petrol. Ever since it has been discovered, people have been predicting it would dry up in a decades time. Not that they are wrong but the point is, lets enjoy Sachin as he is and as a person who knows himself best and surely he would've scripted his farewell already.

I think, Einstein once said, "God didnt play dice with the universe". Had he been alive now and followed cricket, he would've been sure as to which game god played ;)
