On MODIfying, Developing and Changing INDIA

There was a country, a country of spirited and adept men, finding itself in the path of recovery from the heavy blows of imperialistic pas...

Year 1989...
It was an shorter format exhibition game between India and Pakistan...The prominent Spin wizard Abdul Qadir was bowling...He walks to the middle and says "why are you only hitting the kid?..Hit me too.."after that 17 year old kid belted Saqlain mustaq for 2 towering sixes...The very next over Abdul Qadir was struck for 28 runs including 4 sixes...

           All started there and it has not come to an end until the recent One-Of-The-Best-Knocks in cricket which was a single handed effort of 175 to tame the Australians.Needless to say that i'm talking about Sachin Tendlkar.Many bowlers had/having the same nightmare which Abdul Qadir had before 20 years.Many bowlers tried to sledge him,tried to intimidate him but whenever it happened they were on the loosing side.They were subjected to same nightmare.He never involved in verbal duels but instead he will let his bat do the talking.

               He made the staticians busy by scripting whatever record that can be achieved by a batsman...He left no stones unturned.What makes him the best is his never ending desire and hunger to excel.The man still plays cricket only because of his love for the country and the game.No one can be that humble and no one can have that humility.He is touted as the GOD OF CRICKET but yet you can never see any sign or expression of that greatness in his persona.That humility perhaps has taken him to great heights.

                Many stupid sentiments are doing rounds that sachin has not won matches for India,he buckles under pressure in important matches and the most stupidest of all which is as follows whenever sachin hits century India will lose... Eventhough that is baseless,i can see the reason behind that.The reason might be perhaps as follows...when sachin is on song not only the bowler gets intimidated but also the non-strikers and his teammates.A sort of respect and awe develops in them due to his innings.Their ego dies there.They were transcended to an altogether different experience which leaves them stunned.If u watch carefully whenever Sachin played mercurial innings(like the recent one against Australia) no other player will spark.It is because of the reason i have stated above.

                  I said about his humility before...We saw little kids in the bloke jumping and cheering and yelling whenever they played well..They also made it a trend to associate with bollywood actresses(idhula mattum correct ah irunga da..) after they got little popularity...The instant success got to their heads(they play nowadays as if they were born to win and the opponents are stupids) and we saw India failing in major tournaments(like T-20 WC tournament and champions trophy)...These kids should learn the composure and temperament from this legend...

  It was a huge disgrace the way India lost to Australia recently...Especially the match in which sachin scored 175...The recent failures of Team India is due to couple of reasons...One Mr.M S Dhoni and two, BCCI..

                   MSD paved the way for India's debacle by his selection startegies(eventhough he is doing a good job and plays occassionaly well,some of his decisions simply make no sense)..i don't know on what basis Ravindra jadeja was picked for the playing 11.He never scored more than 20 runs in this series and if u say he was picked for his bowling abilities then i must ask, then what the hell Amit mishra was selected for..why don't you pick a regular bowler if you wanna strengthen bowling attack...Dhoni's many such illogical decisions hurted India..He opened with the great great Rohit sharma in T-20 WC and pushed in-form Raina down the order...(His judgement and the ability to grasp a situation quickly has gone..He looks off color)...
             On the otherhand BCCI is also playing a crucial role in India's downfall..They don't understand the players who are picked are humans and not machines...Look at the schedule they play, its a non-stop cricket for one year with not even one month gap.. Understand not even great great champions can win all games...If even a machine requires rest just think about humans...You want money and for that you are breaking the players back...And i don't understand why they keep on having match against srilanka..I think this is 6th or 7th encounter against sri lanka for us in the last 2 years..Why do you wanna play always against the same lankans again and again...We have some other international teams as well...

             Whatever finally they have made a second string Auz team champions and gifted a legendary player tears after he did all that one can do to win a game...Over the years team India has not changed even though they once gave an otherwise impression ...I never felt bad for India for not becoming no.1 team..because we don't deserve that..Do not say talent wise we are competent...Hell with your talents,application is important..how much u turn things with your efforts count..And the man we are talking about(sachin) has done that for more than 20 years with enormous ease..time to take a leaf out of his carrer, kids...Never forget he has both talent and application...
                
  He is the only one who gets standing ovation in all parts of the world(In Auz,England and Even in pak)..There is no division in celebrating sachin and his success..people from all parts of the world irrespective of country,race and religion admires this five foot maestro..He is one such human being and player whom the opponents even will respect...

                  Finally I feel very honoured when i say i am a sachin tendulkar fan...Because he is worth that...You don't see legends and special talents always...Its a great gift to see and to live in the same period in which such an legend lives...Sachin is one such unforgettable Legend.If someone wants to be successful they must choose a better role model from whom they can get inspiration...I would say i got my perfect rolemodel in the form of sachin...Every time he walks to the middle with his mighty MRF( now adidas bat ) and with the expectation of millions i get a lot of inspiration.The way he handled huge success and the way he goes about his task at hand is fabulous...That is something we must learn from him...May god have enough kindness on him to fulfill his dream of playing and winning 2011 WC (Let the god gift WC to this man in his home ground Mumbai)...
