Stupendous! Fantastic! Magnificent! Fantabulous! Wow!! ....... I can keep on writing adjectives but I'm not sure whether I am able to convey my feeling completely.. at times words doesnt suffice to give the complete feeling and this is one such happening.. a sense of utter happiness and amazement coupled with disbelief.. Couple of hours ago, the first double century of ODI cricket has been scored by SACHIN RAMESH TENDULKAR.. what an innings it has been!! 226 minutes..147 balls 25 fours and 3 sixes... absolutely amazing.. he remained there for all the 50 overs and made the miracle happen!! who else deserve it better than him? two decades of international cricket and still rearing to go!! many people who came into lime light after him faded away before him but his hunger for runs is not quenched...

Achyutam Keshavam!!

Blessed are the ones who sang this song.. Blessed are the ones who composed this song.. and Blessed are the ones who listen this song..

Sunny Days is part of the Sunil Gavaskar Omnibus printed by Rupa & Co.. Name: The Sunil Gavaskar Omnibus Author: Sunil Manohar Gavaskar Publisher: Rupa & Co. First Printed: 1999

As expected from a biography the book is arranged in the chronological order of the events happened in Snnyr's life.. However, the first chapter starts with the most weird incident happened just after Sunny's birth.. because of a serious goof up  by the hospital authorities, Sunny was taken by fisher-woman. Sunny just exclaims what would he be doing had he remained with that fisher woman! The first four chapters contains about the details of Sunny's stint with his school as well as college teams and the keenness of  school boys towards their club teams and Ranji trophy.. Regarding the inter university tournament, Sunny hasnt got any hesitation in expressing his disgust …
