A Poem

This is a poem which is one of the series which i am gonna publish in my blog….

This is written by my school friend Archit Shukla…

I’m high I am high again
High in the ocean high in the rain
High in front of my teacher teaching all in vain
Yeah my friend i did drugs and look im high again

Free from the world and all its ties
Leave me alone im ready to fly
So clear is the world and the blue sky
I’m high again and i vont ever cry

I dont know how you would react to thi spoem but i like his poems so i have decided to add his poems too on my blog

Friends Friends dont go away

I dont know why it happens with me that i keep losing my closeness with my real good friends and this has happened not one but many times in my life. I keep on losing my friends due to one reason or another and in the list of reasons i am not including the ppl with whom i lost contact because i shifted my school or the place where i was living . It has almost always occurred due to some reasons which have been either unknown to me and always has been out of my control except one event about which i wrote a few posts ago….

I dont know why it happens to me i have a person who is a very good friend of mine and a person with whom i can always share each and everything i have in my mind and my life but then then except in one case there has been some problem with that guy/gal which moves that person away from me and in the three cases of which i can think of right now. The main problem was a person of the opposite sex as my friend …

But i wont say that a person of another gender than a friend can disembark the boat of my friendship its just the basic understanding of a person how to mantain realtions with friends while taking care of someone special. In two of the three cases it has not even been a relation,just an attempt for relation in one case and i dont know what in another case( i have no idea but something fishy for sure).

I cant understand that its my mistake or that of the other person. Obviously i wont realise my mistake if there is any but i dont want to have any realisation on this topic coz even though i keep losing my friends this way but i keep on getting others and in one of the three cases my ties with that person strengthened after they hit an all time low and now they are as good as they were once and also my nature doesnt allow me to think much about the sad details of my life.

Thats why i tend to ignore things like this but then it hurts sometimes when i realise that there is a person with whom o developed such a strong bond in such a short interval of time that things just came to my mouth in front of those ppl without any effort and now i have to think before talking to those ppl. This is the thing whic hurts me most that what have i done to deserve this.

May the almighty above wants me to go through what i made Chameli go through but i did it only once but have been made to go through it 3 times already. I dunno what is God’s wish behind this but it is said na “Jo bhi hota hai achhe ke liye hota hai ” So i am waiting for the good part of this to come into my life!!!!

The GOD of Cricket

This is a post about the GOD of Cricket who else but the Great Sachin Tendulkar…..
Shane Warne said – He haunts me in my dreams…

A banner by a guy in Eden Gardens,Kolkata
Cricket is our Religion
Eden Gardens is our temple
Sachin is our GOD…….

Well Records are meant to be broken and if Sachin is breaking them critics[haters more rightly] can’t digest them..
One of the incidents people mention is regarding his 194 knock against pakistan..some said it was slow knock..agreed it was a slow knock by Sachin’s stature,but if it is compared wid one of the knock wid Dravid…this will not look as bad it seems….People forget his fast scroing Centuries against world class bowling
169 [201 balls] against South Africa in 1997 at Capetown
92 [120 balls] against West Indies in 1997 at Bridgetown
155 [191 balls] against Australia in 1998 at Chennai
79 [ 85 balls] against Australia in 1998 at Kolkata
100 in 123 balls against NewZealand in 1999 at Wellington[he scored 113 runs in that inning]
155 [183 balls] against South Africa in 2001 in Bloemfontein

But everyone please note this down..Sachin is the Only Batsman in Test Cricket who scored 4 Centuries wid a SIX
179 – 6 off Walsh[I remember it was a hook shot] against WestIndies in 1994 at Nagpur
124 – 6 off Min Patel[off spinner,straight down the ground] against England in 1996 at Birmingham
113 – 6 off Wiseman[off spinner,straight down the ground] against Newzealnad in 1999 at Wellington

126 – 6 off C.R. Millers[straighnt down the ground] against Australia in 2001 at Chennai

(Btw that was sachin’s 25th century)

Scoring Against weaker Oppostions
This can happen in India only..
People remembers 152 against Namibia and forgets 98 against Pakistan in WorldCup
People remembers 248 against Bangladesh and forgets his 7 centuries against World Champions Australia[4 in their own den]..
Only one century against Bangladesh and share the honour of scoring test century against each test playing nation wid Dravid,Ponting and Garry Kristen…No one talk about other 3 batsman scored centuries against Bangladesh..then why the fuss for Sachin??

Australia – 7 Centuries [4 in Australia],2 of them at the age of 18 in 1992
Bangladesh- 1 Century [Unfortunately his highest score in Test Cricket]
England- 6 Centuries [4 in England],
NewZealand- 3 Centuries [1 in NewZealand]
Pakistan- 2 Centuries [1 in Pakistan]
SouthAfrica- 3 Centuries [all three in South Africa]
Srilanka- 7 Centuries [4 in Srilanka]
WestIndies- 3 Centuries [ 1 in WestIndies]
Zimbabwe- 3 Centuries [ none in Zimbabwe]

He scored runs in all parts of world..There are three types of wickets u generally found in Cricket..Fast and bouncy Pitches like in Australia,South-Africa,NewZealand,WestIndies,Spin tracks in India,Srilanka,Pakistan,and seeming tracks like in England. Today people talk about Ricky Ponting…now check this out

Sachin’s and Ponting’s average at their own home soil is above 55 so nothing to discuss this here,but the real part starts now
Sachin’s average in Australia 54.15 , 4 centuries
Ponting’s average in India,12.28 , no centuries

Sachin’s average in England 71.60 , 4 centuries
Ponting’s average in England 42.63 , 3 centuries

I am taking records for these countries only bcoz.. rightnow,best fast bowlers are from Australia,best spinners are from India,Best Seamers from england[as there is no choice bcoz only england have such pitches]
Anyone can take easily tell who played gud cricket against best attack on all kind of pitches…

Intresting Part
Only 5 Centuries against minnows like Kenya ,Namibia[non test playing nation]…and Kenya was the semi-finalist of the world cup’03. 10 scores of above 90 against only test playing nations…now can anyone tell me how is he selfish?? 34 times he scored more than 80 and couldn’t reached 100..If he played for his records..he could easily scored 100’s all of those scores above 80’s …

Failing in pressure situation

Won Chasing Target
Matches Runs Highest Score Avg. 100’s 50’s
Sachin- 101 4397 134 58.62 13 23
Dravid- 72 2124 109* 49.39 2 19
Ponting- 77 2670 124* 53.40 4 17

In Quater Finals
Sachin- 3 210 141 70.00 1 0
Dravid- 2 57 48 28.50 0 0
Ponting- 3 118 46 39.33 0 0

In Semi Finals
Sachin- 7 232 83 33.14 0 2
Dravid- 4 28 58 42.66 0 1
Ponting- 5 71 37 14.20 0 0

In Finals
Sachin – 36 1487 134 47.96 4 9
Dravid- 23 690 103* 34.50 1 3
Ponting- 33 1217 140* 45.07 2 6

In Test
Holds the record of maxium number of 100’s for loosing team…That means a lone warrior..Thats why once Indian Cricket Team was called as ONE MAN ARMY!!!!

More Intresting Part!!!!!!!!
Often said Sachin gets fail at crunch situation…Well 1st we must admit that when Sachin on the crease Win is sure…As soon Sachin gets out..the situation becomes crunchy!!! Sachin is out,now who will win match for us?? Dravid ?? or Sehwag?? or Yuvraj?? Or Ganguly?? No one sure who will win match for them…
So bcoz of this thing Teams targets Sachin as the most precious wicket…
Local umpires also involved some times to help their team against Sachin Tendulkar,espeically Australians!
Some incidents striking in my mind…I think Sachin is the player who got out maximum numbers of times bcoz of bad or wrong decision by Umpires..I m producing those incidents only which I remember,there may be many other too
1. 92 – out of a NO ball from Frankline Rose against West Indies in 1997 at Bridgetown..Remember India lost the test just by 38 runs..U can just imagine how much that bad decision effected the result of the match!!!
2. 83 – Out of a NO ball again..[don’t remember the bowler] last test in WestIndies in 1997.Draw Test.
3. 61 – caught at forward shortleg,bowler Shane Warne.against Australia at Adelaide in 1999.. the ball touched the thigh pads and Umpire Darel Harper gave him out.. India were 107 for 4 when Ganguly joined Sachin and they put on 108 runs for the 5th wicket..
4. 45 – LBW bowler Macgrath,UmpireIan Robinson,against Australia at Sydney in 2000, the ball seemed to hit him too high and was going on leg stump, In that very over,Tendulkar had pulled a short one from Macgrath for two,and hooked the next two for boundaries,and a ball later punched the fast bowler back past him for the 3rd four of the over
5. 0 – LBW bowler Gillespie,Umpire Bucknor,against Australia at Brisbane in 2003 funny thing is that the bowler did not appeal for the LBW… MR.Bucknor gave the decision of his own
6. 0 – caught behind off Lee,against Australia at Melbourne in 2003,ball touched the thigh pads and umpire given him out. 7. 54 – caught behind,Umpire Bucknor,against Pakistan at Kolkata in 2005, I think we all seen that decison, theball was not near his pad,gloves,helmet,arm.. no where…
There may be so many other incident like this…Teams like Australia taking help from the umpires to stop Tendulkar… the 1999-2000 tour of Australia proves it..

And the last thing is that Sachin played 11 years [1989-2000] in the era where his own team mates involved in match fixing.. So despite of his brilliant knocks we failed to win the match just bcoz others not contirbuting..You can win ODI’s just wid ur own batting but u can’t win test matches wid one innings bcoz test played for 5 days its a 4 inning game..Still Tendulkar’s record in that era is Awesome..

Dreamz Unlimited

My humble request to all the people of 2k2 batch of our college ->Pls Pls Pls Dont read the 3rd paragraph of this post Pls Pls Pls ………
 It is said that our dreams fulfill the wishes.It is said that in our dreams sometimes we see the things which we hope for in our day to day life(though this happens very rarely). So i am gonna write about two of my dreams one is a recent one and the other one is more than 2 years old.

 My first dream about which i will mention is the one i had on the night when the next day my IIT Pre result was scheduled to come. That dream was related with my crush at that time. I dont remember what was the content of the dream. I couldnt remember the dream even the next day when i was telling about it to one of my friend a few days later when i was rebuked that how could i sleep so well and dream when other people were losing their sleeps over that matter. Well coming to the dream, i can never say anything about the content of the dream because i can’t recall it but iwould want to make it clear that there was nothing erotic in it. What made it special was that it made me feel as happy i as have never been and have never been after that. It was just a different feeling which i would say was very different  atever i have ever felt in my whole life so i decided to jot down this dream in my blog. I dont think anybody will ever be able to understand the feelings on my part but this dream will remain etched in my memory for ever.

 Before writing about the second dream i just hope that people from the 2k2 batch of our college that is people who were three years senior to me means who were in 4th year last time and have now graduated(well most of them coz some of them are doing MS in IIIT and are the major cause of my fear) dont read itbecause i dont want to get ragged or as it was said in our college  have healthy interaction with my seniors. So now coming to the matter at hand that is my dream. The reference to context is that i have been appointed a mentor that is a group of seniors  who will look after the freshers and prevent them from getting caught by some seniors who would try to make the  interaction unhealthy for the freshers. So coming to the dream finally the matter was that i and a senior “MA’AM” were roaming around as i am a mentor and she was somehow the head of the mentors though she has graduated from the college and as we wer looking around to free some poor souls from the crutches of the happy souls of their seniors(though in my whole life i would never do that, saving the freshers from the seniors after all they are to be ragged) and we are moving about talking to each other with no one in sight(i dont know what we were doing in that “sunsaan” place looking for juniors) and then suddenly i dont know what happened all of a  sudden she just kissed me (keep guessing wher???) but oh my God how did this happen  how lucky i am. She was certainly considered one of the “MAAL” of our college which is a community in a serious shortage in our college. I never found her much beautiful in the whole year i saw her but in the dream she was looking much better than she does in real.
PS-:One hint for people who are trying to guess who she is. Her full name that is including her surname has got a ‘R’ and an ‘A’ in it. This is enough and i cant disclose much coz of the fear of my revered  SENIORS.
