Sir Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar also known as the ‘Little Master’, ‘Master Blaster’ and deemed as the ‘God of Cricket’ by people worldwide, after a glorious career of 24 years and 200 test matches, has announced that it is time that he will “declare” it. Born on April 24, 1974, he started his international career in 1989 and has been the first man to score 100 international centuries (51 in test and 49 in ODIs). Furthermore, he is the only player with 40 wickets and more than 11000 runs in hand. A man of 5’5”, a husband of a proud woman and a father of two, he truly is living specimen to what they call a ‘Gentleman’ in the world of cricket.

Now you probably didn’t know these things about ‘Master Blaster’:

1. Even the God has his superstitions! He dutifully wears his left pad before the right pad in every single match he has played.

2. He might be a spinner now but he was under training to be a fast bowler at the MRF Pace Foundation along with Sourav Ganguli. Australian bowling legend Dennis Lillee was not impressed with his performance and recommended him to stick to batting. What a brilliant piece of advice it turned to be! (Not so good for the Australians themselves)

3. Now this one is probably the best one. He owes a lot to his friends. In his childhood days, while playing, he used to ask his friend Ramesh Pradhe to dip the rubber ball in water and fling it towards him. He then used to check watermarks on the bat to see if he had middle the ball. He also was gifted a pair of international quality cricket shoes by his childhood friend Praveen Amre.

4. Astonishingly, he likes to watch Discovery Channel in his free time rather than any sports channel. He finds the world of science and technology to be useful and enticing!

5. He is possessive about his things! He didn’t like anybody touching his things. That includes forbidding his wife, Anjali, to drive his Ferrari when he used to own it.

6. Sachin was delightful dad and that is a known fact. But only few know that he loved reciting bedtime stories to his kids. Many of his stories included a self-invented protagonist, Rohan!

7. Like Sheldon Cooper of ‘The Big Bang Theory’, Sachin has his “Spot”! In the team bus, Sachin has his dibs on the front seat of the left row. Superstition? Seniority? Some crazy theory about seats? Nobody knows!

8. He is a foodie! Many know that he loves seafood. But what is astonishing is that he can gulp down 15-20 full-sized prawns in one sitting! He also used to compete with his teammates Vinod Kambli and Salil Ankola on who ate the most wada pavs. He is a connoisseur of wine and loves relishing it. Also, he dips glucose biscuits in his tea before eating them!

9. He might be a right-handed bowler and batsman, but he uses his left hand to write! And yes, the word you are looking for is ‘Ambidextrous’ i.e. the ability to use both the hands as dominant hands.

10. Lastly, even the God has his gods! Inside his kit bag are the pictures of Sai Baba and Shri Ganesh. Alongside them are good luck letters from his kids and the Indian flag. Religious as the man is, he is a true patriot!

With his words of retirement, he cried and the whole India cried. As he left the ground after thanking his dear ones and his fans worldwide, he made the country equally happy and sad.

For about 15 long years of his play, the Master Blaster has never ceased to amaze with his game. He is and will, for a long time to come, be the best player on the field of cricket.

SENTIMENTAL POST


A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…

“Dad, look the trees are going behind!” dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behaviour with pity, suddenly he again exclaimed … “dad, look the clouds are running with us !” the couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man… “why don’t
you take your son to a good doctor?” the old man
smiled and said … “i did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he
just got his eyes today…”

Every single person on the planet has story.
“don’t judge people before you truly know them. the truth might surprise you…
think before you say something…!!

CAUTION: This post is lengthy, sentimental and little philosophical, but trust me its worth reading.



Pencil: I’m sorry

Eraser: For what? You didn’t do anything wrong.

Pencil: I’m sorry because you get hurt because of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you’re always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself and get smaller and smaller each time.

Eraser: That’s true, but I don’t really mind. You see, I was made to do this. I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong. Even though one day I know I’ll be gone, I’m actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad.

Our Parents are like the eraser whereas we, the children are pencils. They’re always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes. Sometimes along the way they get
hurt, and become smaller (older, weaker and eventually pass on.

Each time when I fight with my parents and storm out through the front door, not before crossing few yards I stop in my tracks, turn around and see if they are there. Sometimes my hearts skips a beat when a wave of thought floods in asking me “what if they are not here when you come back? What if this is the last time you would be seeing them?” and immediately I feel like breaking down into sobs feeling terribly bad for hurting them.

I always regret for fighting with my parents and promise myself that I won’t shout at my parents for any reason in this world anymore. Unfortunately, some promises are easily made than followed. I lose my cool at the drop of a hat and let off my steam at dad or mom without any bearing. Though I never have anything in my heart, it kills me to remember that, I have shouted at the same parents who cried with joy on hearing me blabber words as a baby. They would have cried many times, even after that, without my seeing, but this time probably it was my harsh, sharp and piercing words behind their cries.

Our parents never show their disappointment or sorrows to us. They would never like to and they never will even if they wished. Like erasers they assume that it is their purpose of life to take care of us amidst all adversities of life and to give us all that we need. They sacrifice we don’t know what all to give us the life that we have. Sometime we feel that they give us little. A smaller house, normal clothes, an average vacation, a simple education, etc. But most often we don’t think that this could have been all that they would have had or in fact never had. They give us everything, for their only way of life is to see us happy.

From today I will be contended with whatever my parents give. If I need anything more, its upon me to work for it. Should thrive to listen to their side of thinking to understand their worries and doubts. After all, more than ourselves, they are more interested in our happiness. Lets honor them by being kind to them every time without fail.

Superb title song choreography , watta energy, watta dance Superb ! #Shivanna :))) #Shivanna has two roles to play in this movie. One of a younger guy who apparently brings bad luck where ever he goes and the other of a saviour, a more matured shivanna. I personally liked the matured shivanna role better. The movie has a little too much violence,some brutal scenes could have been easily edited off.I heard they are going to chop off 11 minutes. The other actor who stands out is #Lokesh, he plays the role of a villian, real good acting. There is another song in the movie..” re re re bajarangi”, beautiful, #ShivaRajkumar looks really nice in that song.His costume in Jiya Teri Jiya meri song is also good ! Shivanna with this movie has reiterated that he is here to stay !! Jai Bajarangi !!

Brain Damaging Habits
1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.
2. Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.
3. Smoking
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.
4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.
5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.
6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.
7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.
8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.
9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.
10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.
