And I looked on with stars in my eyes.....

>> Tuesday, October 21, 2008

He came, he performed and battled a thunderstorm. The world to which he belonged to,watched with awe as he grew from strength to strength. His blitzkreig left most of his opponents gasping for breath. But the respect he got from one and all , proved that all good things come in small packages :) .. He stood out not only for his game but for the standards he set for off field behaviour.

Fame is a bee; it has a song, it has a sting. Ah too, it has a wing! "
Emily Dickinson

And he didn't let fame touch him ... not even a wee bit!!
As the whole world looked at him, waiting for him to take one wrong step... A little girl looked at him with stars in her eyes , with absolute adoration ...






Not every promising player accomplishes as much as he promises. Tendulkar has. Let us celebrate that. His record will be broken. But his impact will last. (Courtesy : Cricinfo article)

Nice Post.

Though we have so many upcoming stars among the younger cricketers, none of them have seemed to have imbibed the qualities like modesty and humility from Sachin.

He is a thorough professional and gentleman. Though in batting I still rate Viv Richards above him ;-)

Reminds me the ad of Airtel. 'One raised finger can break a billion hearts'

This one single statement brought the ad to a very high level to the classy bests...

Cheers

Truely the greatest...his hunger for runs will never die. He battled his way through carrying a huge baggage of expectations of millions of Indians.
