Once in a life time post… I hope not!

It has been long time that pictures have inspired me to write here in my blog. And today I’m right back here on this special occasion of India winning the coveted title of The World Cup.

Right away on to the matter…

What a shot! Gateway of India and India’s favorite son with the most wanted cricket world cup; what an incredible wait this guy has been undergone for this beautiful moment! Finally it has happened shouldering down the tremendous pressure he had been accepting proudly for years now. Sachin Tendulkar’s medals tally is complete.

An effortful tournament with his solid captaincy would have been ended up on slightly low note had he not performed well under pressure in the world cup final on home soil before home crowd! Well deserved Man of the match and really the man of the coolness, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the part of Indian legends list irrespective of what’s going to happen in the years to come in his cricketing career.

Man of the tournament’s life was never easy before the world cup. Dhoni’s confidence brought him back in team. Coming back in to the team straight away in the world cup, performing well always when needed made him special match winner. The reddened and eyes full of tears of him explained how important it was to be determined till the win. Well done champ!

India’s most respectful cricket coach now has become the proud member of the world cup winning squad. The South African who came from the team named as chokers had wonderful memories with his Indian boys carried him in the ground. Gary knows it better how it feels to lose the momentum in crucial matches being in the South African squad and now he ensured Indians stay tuned.

Indian Media, which I feared sometime back, that it would probably, disturbs the team either by shouldering them or by scolding them. At the end, the team has emerged as winners and the news papers have all the space booked to express the nation’s connectivity to the game of cricket. Thank you media for the memorable coverage!

It is not only that Sachin has got the deserved moment for all the hard work he did, well-known spectator, Sudhir Gautam, one of Sachin’s life-time fans has also added the beautiful moment to his own tally, again for all his hard work he did to be the brand ambassador of the little master waving the Indian flag high. It is the proudest moment not just for the little master but for this man too.

Proud father is often seen, but here the story is different. These are the proud children of a great cricketing maestro enjoyed their moments as the crowd was cheering their father their heart out. I hope and wish Sachin would appear again in pictured being a proud father of his children. All the best Sara and Arjun! I’m sure Sachin would have missed his love Anjali Tendulkar out there!

Not every time we get chance to express ourselves on the wonderful things and that’s why I titled this post as ‘Once in a life time post…’! Definitely I cherish these moments but I hope these wouldn’t be the once in a life time. I wish I would write many more of such posts being inspired by such wonderful victories, yet again.

All formal words to Team India:

Thank you for the memories.

Congrats for the victory.

And last but not the least,

All the best for future.

Hi Pramoda,

Sorry....didn't read ur post. 'coz I don't watch cricket. My frenzy for cricket left the moment when match-fixing came to limelight. Ma favorite cricketer was Azharuddin....

Thereby, my interest in cricket gradually evaporated, and now i'm a naive as far cricket is concerned.

Even, now, in country where money rules, cricket is no exception. There, may be, and am sure there is A LOT behind the victory. Cricket, as far as, India is concerned is not a game but a marketing tool.

So, sorry, dear friend, am neither happy nor sad about the 11 players victory....i could never say it has a country's victory.....

And, I always feel it's better to play cricket rather than watching someone else play :-)

Btw, am glad that, you too, like iLaiYa RaaJa.

Poss, check out ma other blog, and video albums. http://manivannansphotography.blogspot.com/

Am sure you'll like it :-)

Hi Mani.. thats ok.. we have our own opinions and i respect urs..:)

@i could never say it has a country's victory.....

Actually country never win; take anything, why just cricket and eleven players.. always people frm some country win..!!

@And, I always feel it's better to play cricket rather than watching someone else play :-)

Haha..ya, for me when our team is playing i just can't sit back just because i'm not representing ..:)

I checked the site.. good one.. he is a grt man really..

Hi Yvonne.. so nice of you.. thanks for being here.. pls keep coming .)

Hi Di.. thats true :)

Manivannan Sadasivam said...

Firstly, thanks for respecting my opinion. yeah, we all have ours....

@Actually country never win; take anything, why just cricket and eleven players.. always people frm some country win..!!

You missed my point. I was, particular, about Cricket. Yes, it happens in everything. For example, Satajit Raj winning an Oscar could be considered as a country's victory.....Or a gold medal in Olympics....BUT NO! NOT IN CRICKET. Don't tell me that the Match was not FIXED......100 crore population....And winning means a lot of other things.....Victory in cricket alone is truly fishy. They may not come to limelight...but , again am saying, there was a LOT-MONEY-BEHIND-INDIA's-VICTORY....like it happened for AR RAHAMAN.

Am not asking u to believe me....nor am asking u to change......in this country-called-india...things happen only that way.....

@Haha..ya, for me when our team is playing i just can't sit back just because i'm not representing ..:)

Again, You, missed the point. I had never mentioned that since 'i' was not representing...when it comes to country there is no 'i' and 'u'. I told that 'coz it's better for health rather than watching some drama(here cricket) in the idiot box.

Here too, i never asked anyone to go and play, I just stated my opinion....and since that was misunderstood...am re-stating bit elaborately...That's it.

And, thank u for accepting my request and visiting the blog. Yeah, he is a great man, and soul, too :-)

have a great weekend...

Shree Rama Jayam!
