Sachin and Freddie.

He is great. He is unique. And there are many reasons to it. The pic depicts one of them. A very important one. He looks the ball into its eyes till it becomes dead, whether he hits it or leaves it. When he hits it with heaviest bat in the world, an attempt to stop it is a crime. Try it out and you will be punished-ask Courtney Walsh(Remember Hero Cup ??). Of course there are some cruel moments when the ball hits him on helmet, shoulder, wings. But no worries. The ball is helpless and it is not revenge but its stumbling under frustration.
Why the hell is he so great? All of your queries are answered by a great Sachin fan, Harikrishnan.
(Not to forget, Shameen Hameed helped him in some way, so says he.)
Well, I owe him a lot and must post link to his personal home page here.
And also, his blog on Sachin.
I have uploaded sachin videos on esnips. This is the link to esnips folder. The best one is “Harsha on Sachin Tendulkar”

The folder also contains some Queen songs. (Not as famous as Sachin since view count has reached to 1: me, since I have uploaded those, against 51 views for Sachchu videos. Not even the friend for whom I uploaded those, have seen thoseJ. He has promised me that he will download ASAP.). Really good songs. My favorites.

One of the best from Queen: Just a para of “We are the champions”
I've paid my dues - Time after time -
I've done my sentence But committed no crime -
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face -
But I've come through
We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end
We are the champions - We are the champions
No time for losers 'Cause we are the champions - of the world –

Another one with deep blue color: No one but you.

A hand above the water
An angel reaching for the sky
Is it raining in heaven -
Do you want us to cry?
And everywhere the broken-hearted
On every lonely avenue
No-one could reach them
No-one but you
One by one
Only the Good die young
They're only flying too close to the sun
And life goes on - Without you...

Though Queen enjoyed unprecedented success and was considered as best stage performers of the time, Freddie Mercury, lead vocal of Queen, lived a very tragic life. Indian-Zoroastrian origin and homosexual relationship were the reasons for the tragedy. He also suffered from AIDS in his later life.
Whatever… I am a great fan of his voice and singing.

Mention not hari. As I said, all Sachin fans owe you a lot. I always debate with my friends about Sachin's greatness. You put all those points on web, so well analyzed, and made my job easy. All I have to do is fwd them the link to your blog :).

"Sachin fails under critical conditions".
"Nop !! when Sachin fails, the situation becomes critical"
