Before people start bashing me only on reading the headline please continue. How a blog can mention that a person who is idolized by 1 billion odd Indian people, be associated with the word FAIL? A person or a legend who has crossed every milestone, won every heart beat, a legend with the power to make the life of 1 billion people frreze only by wielding a wooden cricket bat has eventually also FAILED.
GOD has FAILED in hiding his identity from mere mortals, that his name on earth is SACHIN TENDULKAR. Cricketers can now file complaints with ICC that all this while they were competing against a superior power. May be just to fulfill the universal law, "the whole universe conspires to let you achieve your goal --> leading to beginners luck", is the reason why GOD gave his wicket away to Panesar, Harris, McKay and many other bowlers, so that they never lost heart and followed their passion for cricket.
Here are a few quotes for the legend that is TENDULKAR. (Most of them made by me, an eternal devotee)
- Bhagwaan has done it!! now i can retire from cricket in peace.. wait a sec.. we need 10 more centuries, a World Cup, 20k ODI runs, coz ... YEAH DIL MAANGE MORE!!
- Sachin got there first, we don't care who the hell Neil Armstrong is !!!
- Even what many hackers couldn't accomplish, Sachin has done it, Denial of Service from Cricinfo.---Gopal Shastri
- SACHIN is GOD and cricket is his most wonderful creation.. those who doubt this can consider rehabilitation.
- Commit all your sins when Sachin Tendulkar is batting, coz it is GOD himself who is batting.
- Agar LAGAAN ke time Sachin Tendulkar hota, toh picture bahut choti banti!! Plus Britishers Independence bhi de dete!!
- I finally know what god really looks like!! He is about 5"5, Maharashtrian and plays cricket!! Tendulkar bapa moraya --- kunal kapoor twitter
To sum up then, this is probably the best day of my life, which might not be true, coz when Tendulkar makes 100 100's that would definitely upstage this.
p.s. just to add about the modesty of Tendulkar..:
Long ago there was a Pepsi ad "Sachin ALA RE!!" where Sachin is shown swatting cricket balls with a wicket stump, he was actually asked to use a mosquito swatter but he told the ad director (Prahlad Kakkar) that using a mosquito swatter would show that Sachin is bigger than cricket. He was plain and clear that he won't shot the ad with that script. This shows the respect that Sachin has for the game, despite the adulation received from all quarters.
UPDATE: THIS IS HILARIOUS
