CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD!!!





For the first time I am posting about something other than art. But when the occassion is so HUGE, perhaps I may be pardoned :-).

India defeated Sri Lanka yesterday evening at Wankhede Stadium Mumbai to lift the World Cup of Cricket!!! So India are now the world champions again after a gap of 28 years. Cricket is more than a religion in India and the above picture is of our GODS!


The man at the centre of the picture who is sitting on the shoulders of his teammates is Sachin Tendulkar. Considering his contribution to Indian cricket and world cricket in general, he deserved the cup more than anyone else on this planet.
Congratulations SACHIN!
Congratulations INDIA!!!
Team India are now the No.1 Test team as well as the No.1 ODI team.

It is nice to learn about something else that interests you. You need other interests to be a well-rounded person. Too many people are single-minded and fixated on one thing only, makes them hard to understand.

It was a nail biting match! Well done India - Sri Lanka were worthy opponents. And such a fitting goodbye to Sachin's last World Cup.

Congratulations on the win. CBC Canada carried interviews and updates for several weeks before the match so we cricket poor Canadians were kept up to date!
