Somewhere something little died in me today...

I was never a big fan of cricket (*as expected*)… but then my entire family was. Quiet surprisingly, I thought It was a waste of time. So back in those days when a house had only one T.V. , match once ON would never go OFF. Especially my Uncle, he had the ability to convert into a statue once the match is on. 110% attention is something which I got to learn from him. :P

 Anyways so when Sachin was out… a dead silence in my living room. Everyone gets up…back to normal life and the TV goes off. That was miraculous. I always thought they were in love with the game but they were in love with this person. So just to know what’s so different about him I started watching him and I never stopped. This must be back in 1998-1999 and then I had a long 15 year relationship with him *wink*

Anyways how much ever I talk about him it’s going to be a drop in the sea. I cannot contain his greatness in words. He is modest, determined, dedicated and + all the infinite good adjectives all can be applied to him. Sadly I could watch him bat live only once but I remember my eyes were glued to the binoculars the whole time he was on the ground.

So just to summarize, you will always be my favorite person, one who is ideal to be an ideal person. I don’t care what people say or think about you. Cricket for me ends with you.
You are one heck of a global celebrity and still so bound to ground. *truly amazing*

“Now only Humans will play cricket… :(

Something legends would like to add :

Matthew Hayden: "I have seen God. He bats at number four for India." 

Rahul Dravid: "What he has done is set a benchmark for future generations which, probably, would be almost impossible for anyone to emulate." 

Brian Lara: "Sachin is a genius. I'm a mere mortal. When I speak about cricket, I will speak about Tendulkar. Just like you mention Mohammad Ali when you mention boxing and Michael Jordan when it comes to basketball." 

Anil Kumble: "I am fortunate that I've to bowl at him only in the nets." 

Mahendra Singh Dhoni: "His schoolboy-like enthusiasm for the game is something I envy and admire. For the team he is the best available coaching manual." 

Andy Flower: "There are two kind of batsmen in the world. One, Sachin Tendulkar. Two, all the others." 

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan: "I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing us to breathe the same air as you do." 

Shane Warne :”I’ll be going to bed having nightmares of Sachin just running down the wicket and belting me back over the head for six. He was unstoppable. I don’t think anyone, apart from Don Bradman, is in the same class as Sachin Tendulkar. He is just an amazing player “

Peter Roebuck : “On a train from Shimla to Delhi, there was a halt in one of the stations. The train stopped by for few minutes as usual. Sachin was nearing century, batting on 98.  The passengers, railway officials, everyone on the train waited for Sachin to complete the century. This Genius can stop time in India!” 

Andrew Flintoff :When you bowl at him you are not just trying to get him out, you are trying to impress him.

 Wasim Akram:Earlier, opposing teams used to feel that Sachin’s dismissal meant they could win the game. Today, I feel that the Indian players, too, feel this way.

Barack Obama - "I don't know about cricket but still I watch cricket to see Sachin play..Not b'coz I love his play its b'coz I want to know the reason why my country's production goes down by 5 percent when he's in batting"

Amitabh.:"Sachin is the heart of cricket.. He has not just excelled himself in cricket, but he is also a symbol of great excellence. It's unimaginable to see him retire. Cricket will not be the same without Sachin,"

Waqar Younis(Pak) :''He can play that leg glance with a walking stick also”

And just a treat to eyes while saying good bye.. :

Madras café review

Madras café is not just another Bollywood masala story with 2-3 item numbers thrown here and there. This movie is thought provoking, emotionally shaking, patriotic and deeply connecting you to the political front of the nation.

Cast:John, Abraham, Nargis Fakhri and Rashi Khanna
Director: Shoojit Sircar

The movie begins under the backdrop of Lankan wars and the innumerous innocent killings that took place then. The reel is quite made out of real photographs and you cannot believe your eyes when you see few of them. The entire story runs in a flashback mode well put by a now drunken John Abraham who pays regular visits to the church since a long time.

Soojit Sircar has made a very beautiful attempt at staying true to the facts and keeping a well-balanced nature between the imagination and the fiction.

Though throughout the film we are aware that there is a assassination that is going to take place, those who are good at history even know how and when…even then this movie will keep you glued to your seats. You want to know what happens next and how it happened.

There is no hero or villain in the film. John has played the hero but he is not given a larger than life role like the normal Bollywood films (people die here realistically even with 2 bullet shots…unlike most of the Bollywood films where they are alive even after shooting half a dozen of bullets at them). Everyone here has an important role. The film doesn’t show excess of anything.

It has hit the bulls eye while keeping it realistic. The film sticks to its genre of political drama without any unnecessary romances, love triangles, songs etc. its right to the core and is not beating around the bush and that keeps the viewer’s interest intact. Everyone has acted well and has not overdone or underdone anything which would spoil the flow of the film.

This movie showcases a volatile piece of Indian history. Some of the images are still alive in some generation across the nation. It leaves us with a question, that what do we gain at the end of  a war and who wins..?? It’s always the civilians who lose at the end of each war.

Rating:  5/5 

That is because it sticks totally to its genre. This movie might not be for everyone but for those who are a part of this genre will love it.

How to get beautiful skin without spending on expensive treatments

Today I will be sharing some known facts which we all know but never practice.

I will consolidate all the easy and known facts that can be included in our daily routine. If you follow all the below steps you will be blessed with a beautiful skin. Any yes! You don’t have to spend a penny for it.

So let’s get started…

1.      Start drinking a lot.

I mean water! Don’t get me wrong. Drink as much water as you can. There is nothing like excess of water. Water keeps your skin hydrated and young. It’s the best medicine one can have.

2.      Workout/exercise.

This is where we give up. I know it’s boring and not something like watching a movie. But I think everyone feels nice to have that perfect body but no one wants to work for it.
Working out will help your skin breath properly and also shed of the extra fat.

3.      Scrub

Our skin accumulates a lot of dead skin cells in a matter of time. Scrub regularly to get rid of them. This will expose the new skin and keep it fresh by breathing. It glows the skin.

4.      Sleep

Get your beauty sleep properly. Let the cells regenerate themselves. This will happen only when you sleep properly and on time. Don’t compromise on sleeping as it will instantly show on your skin.

5.      Moisturize and sunscreen

Both are extremely important for the skin. No matter if it’s a cloudy day or wintry day don’t go outside without a sunscreen on yourself.
Also every night make a routine of cleansing, scrubbing and moisturizing your skin.

After following the above 5 steps you won’t even need any expensive treatments to be done. Aren’t they easy.?? So get started.
