The Indian Football Fans

I am a Chelsea fan who started following football after I played EA Sports FIFA 09. I might not be the best to comment about teams in depth but this is what I think of the fans in India. I am biased! I believe Chelsea has the most interesting play and can take on any…

We all love a Rockstar

He was asked when and where he’d like to retire. Not only that, he was given time to give out a final speech to all his followers as well. I remember myself sitting on my Porch with tears and mist for the next hour. My room-mates didn’t even dare see me like that. That is…

Cricket's resurrection

I stopped watching cricket keenly after Sachin’s retirement. I felt the game was losing its class. Australia’s visit, I believed was one of the most disgraceful series for cricket; chasing 350 regularly with that ease!!! The game had slowly become entertainment and batsmen centric with no respite for the bowlers. Pitches tweaked to suit the…

The Protective BCCI

It was probably the start of the semester. The discussion in the house was how BCCI is probably asking Sachin to retire.

Most of the matches were very close (except off course the Sehwag battering), and in the end the better finisher survived. Since ages, we have been known as a team with gigantic batting prowess,…

It deserves a contest!!

Its just the story one could have written as a fairy tail. Home crowd, a challenging total and a World Cup final. It did not happen then. Out after a mesmerising straight drive. Some things are great just because it takes a lot of effort to achieve them and then there is a kind of…

World Cup 2011

It’s been two months…. 14th January- I was drunk from my friend’s B’day party. Along with the usual blabbering and taking people’s cases, I said one thing to one of my good friend’s. “Book Wankhede, we are going to reach the final this time. It’s Sachin’s this time.” He mocked me and I remember him…

Magic

Sorry for the racism but I love it when white skin goes red, especially if there is something supernatural that ensues their clueless minds. When you are stung by a scorpion, you can revive, but getting caught in a hurricane renders you helpless. That’s the magic the maestro, the greatest magician of the world, Sachin…
