I am Sachin........

Cricket's most prolific batsman stressed on his human side through the media-interaction. “I am not God, I am a cricketer and I am Sachin.”

This may be too personal but I don't feel very happy when cricket is criticized,I find my love for cricket assaulted from all directions.We lost against Bangladesh,there is no denying in the fact this is really an astonishing part of the game.

Even after that It's an honour and privilege to say that we are the habitats of a country from where the God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar hails.Sometimes we switch off our TV sets,we become angry and say will never watch cricket now but again we were drawn to this game that is the beauty of this game.

The reason of love:

Finally Sachin got his 100th ton.It is a great milestone and no one else is going to get there, but we don't watch a game merely for a milestone. We watch sport for the joy of seeing great performances not to bother that the defeat is only due to reaching the milestone.As a human being this is my question that would you love to see the matches only for milestones.The answer would be an obvious no.

How humble he is:

The statement made by little master just after reaching the milestone was never leave chasing your dreams,it may come true.The rough phase of 369 days have raised many questions,the cricket pandits were suggesting Sachin to hang his boots.The person who has served the Nation since last 22 years will not take minutes to come@ this decision to say good bye to cricket.

Rubbish talk shows:

Now there will be no talk or debate show on the news channels,there would be no TRP games.Sachin will play with an ease now a much relieved man must be feeling himself in comfort zone.Of course as he said “Yes, I have to be honest. I am human and I have emotions so I was frustrated. It does play on your mind,” Tendulkar told reporters at the post-match press conference.This shows the humbleness of this man.

Sachin Tendulkar admitted that the intervening journey between his 99th and 100th international hundreds, was one of the toughest he has faced in his career.

Perhaps the person who really loves cricket and this legend will have no question to ask now ,this is my humble request to all the cricket lovers to keep mum on the rubbish question of retirement,let him enjoy the game as longer as he wants.

From Sitab Diara to Delhi

The senior most leader of BJP L.K.Advani started his “Jan Chetna Yatra” form Sitab Diara.It is the birthplace of Jaiprakash Narain who is considered the father of agitation against corruption.

The journey from Somnath to Sitab Diara has witnessed lots of ups and downs.Advani is tagged with "PM in waiting" for last ten years.Will he be able to eradicate this tag .will this yatra do a favour to him to be the Prime Minister of India.

This yatra is being considered as his last chance to grab the opportunity to be the Prime minister.will he be the PM ,will the country witness the change,there are many more questions in the mind of the general people.The specific word Jan chetna reveals that the habitats of India are sleeping.BJP is trying to make them awaken.The internal rift amongst the leaders in BJP is known to all.Either the Sadbhavna mission of Narendra Modi or the question of projecting someone as the PM candidate is a matter of debate.what so ever it happens one thing has become very obvious that the political scenario of the country is changing with the amount of corruption and scams revealing day by day.

The birth of Anna and Anaagiri has raised the voice against govt.The initiatives that should be done by the opposition did by Anna and Ramdev.May be the opposition got the alarm.The common notion strike the iron while it is hot turned in make the iron hotter by striking it hard.BJP still is not aloof from the policy of hidutwa.RSS doesn't want Advani,Modi is showing his strength going beyond the politics of the state,in such condition the common people think that who is going to be the candidate of PM either Advani,Modi or anyone else as it has been always said by the party members that there are many more person who can be projected for the post of PM at the high time.

What is the destination for this yatra is not concrete,BJP is trying to regain its roots.This would be worthless to point out that not only the rath yatra of Advani is detined to Delhi but BJP is also heading its destination to Delhi to get the reign.The commoner are suppressed with price rise and inflation ,the corruption is also neck headed.

Now this would be worth watching that would the PM in waiting get the thrown or retire from the active politics.BJP has the chief ministers in five states and alliance in one(Bihar).Now the calculus of politics reveals that the integration of the power of these states may prove worthy in the centre also.There is no dearth of doubt that Annagiri is also propelling the people to bring the change.2014 loksabha elections is not far, all the political parties are cruising on the politics of rathyatra.

This would be very interesting to see that which political party is going to destined his rath to the throne of Delhi.Till then wait and watch analyze the politics of everyone.The tag of "PM in waiting" will loom on the haed of Advani or will he be the PM .

Full stop on ghazal singing

If you would try hard to remind the name of ghazal singers the first name in your mind will pop up that is Jagjit Singh 1941-2011:Remarkable humility in how he approached his art and forthrightness in his beliefs set apart this singer who 'caressed' words.He was popular as "Jeet" for his kin but couldn't win the battle of life.

When i got the news of Jagjit Singh's brain hemorrhage kidding to my colleague i said that make special pages for him.2011 is witnessing the deaths of so many prominent personalities,may be that's why but this was really absurd when i got the shocking news of his demise.

Listening his ghazal was just finding the eternity the wordings,the utterances and the lively performance.

Everything was there if you would have as lucky to watch his live concert.Born in 1941 in Sriganganagar, Rajasthan,to Punjabi parents,he learnt music at the feet of Pandit Chhaganlal Sharma in the early years of his life, then under Ustad Jamaal Khan of the Sainia gharana. His grooming would eventually ensure that unlike other ghazal singers who attained popularity in the ‘80s only to fade away, Jagjit was not only able to ride a crest but guard against any trough.

I missed the live shows as well as a glimpse of him.people these days even live in 80 and 90s why the good people die early.This is the life and the truth about it.Ghazal has depth and its own meaning and expression.There is a very common notion that (Ghazal wahi sunta hai jike paas akal ahoti hai)the mean of saying so is one who ocuupies the deep understanding listens the ghazals and understand it.

A self portrait character for himself in the age when the identification of ghazals was to established there are not many more names to count on the fingure,Talat Mehmood, Noor Jehan and some more names but he gave a dizzy height to the ghazal in the Indian film industry and left the inspiration for the kid like Ranjeet Rajwada, a SA RE GA MA PA contestant who got the future of gazhal awarad for his extra-ordinary singing.

A voice which carved the ghazal singing will not be heard now.There is a complete void in this arena.people prefer to listen now Jazz,Discathics rap and bhangra not the ghazals.The sweet sound of Jagjit will remain in the hearts of millions but only to remember.This is really a great loss not only for the Music industry but also for the fans who loved him form the core of heart.

Being a music lover the words don't have the capability to express the feeling,love,sympathy and sorrow to loose such an eminent personality of the music industry.Now only his songs will be on the leaps in the isolation.

He is survived by his wife,Chitra Singh.

"Controversially Yours" is a controversy

Never far from controversy in his playing days, Shoaib Akhtar has kicked up quite a storm in India with his autobiography “Controversially Yours”, questioning the integrity of most players he came across.

He has picked this time a player who is regarded as the God not only in India but also abroad and an ultimate calssy player Rahul Dravid.Both of them don't keep place as the match winner for India or the finisher.This may be the matter of the debate but one thing is very candid that Sachin has never ever played cricket in fear.

Write off Dhoni now

Luck can not make you every time successful.sometimes there is an essential need of labour and chance to give a push at the ladder of success.Now this is the high time that Dhoni will be write off now.Many more brands to his credit a very successful captain, the People's choice award nominee for the ICC,Captain Cool and many more adjectives you can add but as a player he has been proving nothing but a leader.

Can you remember a knock from Dhoni which can be called a captain's knock in favour of the team.except one or two early span of his life one against Pakistan and other against Sri Lanka or may be the one in the final of the 2011 world cup.An athlete has to be consistent either tomorrow is not yours'.India have produced many more captains (Ganguly ,who changed the entire attitude of Indian team towards cricket, but now had no one to purchase in IPLs )and this is a country where the players are worshiped as the God and they can be eradicated even from the memory within the fragment of second.

Don't assume that this is being written as the harsh criticism on Dhoni by me only because he could not score in the last two tests against England.He has been being followed by me since he was not amongst runs either in the One dayers or in the Test cricket.Only the leading quality in you can not make you stir in the squad for too long .There are many names in the queue like Gauty and Virat who are ready to shoe in at the stage of leading.Even after not being very technically sound he achieved the consecutive successes as captain, there is no dearth of doubt in it.

The inconsistency since last one year,if you want to take a glimpse take this India-Eng series only a few runs to count for him.Australia reigned for the 15 years not only because their players were performing but also because Ricky Ponting (Punter) had performed consistently.The leading quality is not only with the gloves and with the adjustment of the players or the statement from the add (2007 का T-20 वर्ल्डकप टीम में कई अनुभवी गेंदबाज़,लेकिन मेरे जेहन में कुछ और ही था )may be he has been crossing through the lean phase but now this media and the so called cricket pandits are going to leave no stone unturned to make a mess of his poor performance and taking the silly decisions like bowling in the Lord's test.

The result of the Nottingham test is also expected another humiliating defeat.Now wait and watch for the Media prone Dhoni that how he is going to face these crunchy situations.I have written off Dhoni this time.
