THE MOMENT TO CHERISH…
6 march, 2011…
Chinnaswamy stadium, Bengaluru..
India vs Ireland, World Cup 2011..
1st inns over.. Ireland 207 all out…
the innings break was getting over..
we saw the Irish green take the field, and the crowd began to buzz
like never before.. we saw the umpires starting off from the
pavilions… the buzz getting louder and louder each passing second..
we knew it was about time… people started standing up… but I was
already up and was glued to the grills just yards away from the
boundary line, stretching ma head hard to get a decent view of the
pavilion.. the umpires walked off to the boundary line and into the
fields and the crowd had risen… every one up ,tip toed and
waiting…. the buzz turned to an uproar… everyone felt the energy..
so did I..
and suddenly it started… the uproar transformed itself… louder than
ever….
2 WORDS.. THE SAME NAME.. THE SAME TONE… THE WHOLE CROWD..

It was easily the best moment of my life… that was the strongest I
ever felt… it was the joy, the thrill, the excitement and the energy
flowing all over me.. and at the top of my voice, I roared with the
crowd….
SACHINNNNNN………. SACHINN….
SACHINNNNNN………. SACHINN…….
Every eye peeking into the pavilions…. and then we saw, the
glimpse of blue.. and the stadium exploded with joy and we didn’t
know wat to do… people started hugging each other.. and even in
its loudest form, the roar was clear… the name echoed in the
traditional tone., as it did for years…
And they walked off to the field… This was the
moment…!!!! The wait was over.. There he was… With the dashing Viru
along his side, with the shining willow in his hand and wearing the
helmet with the tricolor, there he was… the hero of my life..
And then, even though I was roaring with them, I couldn’t feel
the sound… everything else was still except him walking… I couldn’t
digest the moment and thefeeling…
I had seen Sachin Tendukar…!!
The moment I was dreaming of all my life…
Here it was… !! To see him bat…!!
The roar echoed on for as long as he batted…(he made 38, 5 fours)
  This was the only time I saw him…
And undoubtedly, it was a memory for a Lifetime…
  And that.., was my best TENDULKAR MOMENT…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SACHIN…
each word I read about him…,
each clip I see of him…,
each comment I hear on him… jus fills me with the essence of sheer pride…
thrills me with goosebumps jeering all over…
and i feel the overwhelming joy that makes my lips curve to a smile…
to have known n seen this phenomenal human…. jus his name is an ultimate inspiration…
and his mere thought takes us to another world…
such is his might…the influence n the effect he has on us… SACHIN TENDULKAR
the ever loved son of the nation.. WISH U A HAPPY BIRTHDAY…
