Orange vs Apple

Hi Friends,

How have you being doing lately. Below is a combo pack of current events, Philosophy and general gyaan. Happy reading.

2) My inspiration from Sachin
3) Frustration :)

Time stands frozen in front of Sachin Tendulkar. We have had champions, we have had legends, but we have never had another Sachin Tendulkar and never will.

When Sachin started, Michael Schumacher was yet to race a F1 car, Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour de France, Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion Argentina team, Pete Sampras had never won a Grand Slam. Roger Federer was a name unheard of; Lionel Messi was in his nappies, Usain Bolt was an unknown kid in the Jamaican backwaters.
These are the broken eggs.. heheheheh ( Virus speech - 3 idiots)

But why am I saying all this. For heaven's sake, stop comparing oranges to apples.

There is a Sachin Tendulkar in each one of us. Just that our 2 1/2 sq. feet crease is different and we bat in our daily lives on a different pitch. Our hard (read smart) work and credentials can take us to new pedestals all the time.

Compete or die (Like Virus in 3 idiots) is the motto for most people today. Let me complete it - Compete, but with yourself :)

There is so much of Sachin in each one of us. Time to explore is now. Let me get back to batting :) My pitch awaits me.
