Tribute to Masterblaster!!!!!!!

SACHIN TENDULKAR made a world record when he scored 200* at 2nd one day international against South Africa at Gwalior....it took 442 matches in 20 years of his cricketing career to reach this stage..and yet he played more like a 20 yr old than a 36 yr old....he was simply awesome....the feeling u get when u see him get the 200th run cannot be described...it has to be experienced...and all those who have not seen the game are missing something big!!
I saw the match albeit late...and still was biting my nails watching the highlights wondering when he was gonna take that 200th run.....it was a treat to watch the master batsman....maybe I am gonna overuse adjectives coz any number of adjectives will fall short of describing the man, the occasion, the moment in history of cricket!
I dont know much about the techniques in batting so I am not gonna say he batted flawlessly....or that the technique was superb...but I am going to say about the man...how he kept his calm....how he batted tirelessly...he literally fought with his own body to reach the final mark....told himself he was not gonna give in to the cramps....the way he played like a team player....when dhoni was hitting all over the place, i was getting nervous as to when sachin will reach his double century, but i don't think the thought crossed sachin's mind, as he inched slowly and steadily towards 200....it took him forever to get to 200 from 190....but he let dhoni play his natural game...
and let me not forget the three men behind this historic achievement dinesh karthik, yusuf pathan and ms dhoni who provided support to sachin, so that he could play his best without worrying about anything.....
to all my friends who are wondering how come I am praising sachin so much...lemme add...i still love rahul dravid as much i did ten yrs back....and thats not gonna change no matter what...but that doesn't mean i cant acknowledge and appreciate sachin tendulkar or the rest of the team :)
kudos to the masterblaster! thank u :) and wish u continue to play like this for a long long time....

glimpse of sachin's batting.....hats off to u

Congratulations my darling sis

My todays post is dedicated to the newest Dr Fadia...yup..my little sister mithila....m just so proud of her...cant believe it...my baby sis is a doctor! been a long route no doubt...living in karad for 5 n 1/2 yrs is no mean feet...all the students of KIMS must be given additional marks just for living in that place without losing their heads...
        as i write this post, she must be standing there in auditorium full of people wearing the black robe taking the hippocrates oath....m so missing not being there, seeing her graduate....there are tears of joy welling up just imagining the situation...i dont know how i wud be reacting if i were there in person.....anu n ushma are gonna be there with mom n dad....m so jealous of both of u...but am happy she has u guys to share her happy moment with....two sisters required to compensate for the absence of one.....
       she is gonna make a perfect doctor...the way she is a perfect sister, n perfect daughter.......Way to go yet i know till she achieves whats the final mark...but this is an important milestone nevertheless.....and something thats  gonne stick by her all her life...no matter what happens in the future....All the best, darling....miss u...n love u big time :)

5 point someone VS 3 idiots

lemme first say...both are gr8 works of art....in their own areas they both are great...but if i  have to pick one of the two...i will pick 5 point someone...

why i like 5 point someone over 3 idiots
  •   the subplots in the book are amazing...love the amazing ideas Ryan comes up with, esp the C2D (co operate to dominate)..i was in splits when i read about it....
  • loved the neha - hari love story...the love story unfolds very well...and all the dates are sweet and funny...
  • Ryan's idea about making lip stick holder is just so sweet !
  • the idea that the main characters in the story are 5 point someones....thats unique..
  • the vodka party over the water tank..
  • prof veera with his faith in ryan's abilities..Ryan's successful experimentation with the lubricating engine oil..
  • the manner in which Prof Cherian realizes about his son's death
  • longest day of my life part one n two :) just too good....u just cant keep the book down till the end
In 3 idiots :
well the filmmakers still cant believe that the hero can be a normal average person....so even though farhan and raju are at the bottom...rancho has to be a topper...why????? Why does rancho get a love story?? n not farhan...i wonder did aamir khan demand for the changes in the plot or was it mr hirani's idea....
         Ryan's character is changed...where did the entire story abt he not caring for his parents vanish
          in the book they steal question paper for all of them, n the episode abt how hari gets the keys from neha too is funny...and the subsequent DISCO...everything fitted perfectly....
          as i write this post, i realize the movie is just so much different than the book...where did mona's character come from....what abt pia's fiance? they just added so much drama at the end....bride running from th alter...mona's delivery....n wow...they made rancho a big time scientist.....n the fake identity issue...where did all this come from...
          lot of changes....in the main story..in the sub plots....well, 3 idiots is a good movie no doubt...but i wonder when will the cinema break free of the norms......and make a movie from a book, the way its written

happy valentines day

on the eve of this valentines day.....just one thought crosses my mind...

बस अब बहोत हुआ... तुम जहां भी हो...जो भी हो...मेरे सामने आ जाओ.....मैं थक गयी इंतज़ार करते करते... मेरा विश्वास मेरे नसीब से उठ जाये उसके पहले आ जाओ....मेरे भरोसे को टूटने मत दो...मेरे सामने हो तोह...मुझे अपने दिल की बात कह दो...बहोत miss किया है मैंने तुम्हे......पिछले दस सालों में .....अभी तोह आ जाओ...अपना चेहरा दिखाओ मुझे बस....

song of the day: yeh duriyaan from love aaj kal


just m so tired today....was a very busy day at the restaurant...i don't know...each valentines day i feel happy despite no one being there in my life that every yr i am going closer to the one am gonna meet....but somehow this time hope eludes me...i don't know if m low or just tired...bye good night...

apology..

one of the most underestimated weapon (for the lack of a better word)...its hard to be angry on someone after hearing a heartfelt apology...and the best part is, the words are so powerful and healing that most of the bitter and harsh words are forgotten...and both the people feel better, the one who apologizes and the who is the receiver of the apology...
     i heard somewhere, a lot of law suits can be avoided by something as simple as saying "you are sorry"
it might take a toll on people's ego though...coz a lot of people believe that they never make a mistake...and apologizing also means that you admit you made a mistake...accepting their mistake is what hurts most people more than saying sorry...
    but isnt accepting mistake, saying sorry, and moving beyond a issue better and more fun that ruminating some unpleasant event in your life..and why is saying sorry more difficult to people who know you and are close to u...you dont mind saying sorry to a stranger on the street u accidently bump into...but you certainly have a problem when its your family or close friend..coz you expect them to understand you and your actions....so even if you knew you made a mistake, you expect them to understand you made a mistake coz had a bad day at work or study or whatever....
    but instead of assuming they know why you yelled..you can say sorry and that i had a problem at work and so i yelled at u...this is gonna make everyones life simpler.....look within yourself..introspect.... dont u feel a lot better when your friend apologized....and most times u too say sorry for reacting badly...
    all in all...heard this nice quote somewhere "apologizing doesnt always mean you are wrong, it just means you value the person more than your ego"

I Wonder

I wonder..
if you think about me..what do u think
if you miss me...do u do something about it
if you wish i was there next to u, holding your hand when you are down..
if you can imagine a life without me..
if you can imagine me with someone else..
if you feel the terror that something might be going wrong somewhere and you are too far to do anything about it.
if you feel you made a mistake somewhere down the line
if you wake up in middle of night thinking about me..
if you feel like seeing me smile would erase all your worries..
if you would cross the ocean for me
if you feel you could face anything if i were by your side

I wonder, if you wonder that do I have these thoughts too..
