I have seen the god!
I remember a placard during one of the cricket matches. It said ‘When I die, I will see the god. Till then, let me see Sachin’
Everyone knows that in India cricket is a religion and players are gods! Last month I got the opportunity to see a few of them. The event was 75th Birthday of the well known cricketer Chandu Borde. He was given an Honorary Certificate (Manpatra) at the hands of Sachin Tendulkar. I was blessed with the opportunity to design that Manpatra. At the event I met some great cricketers of those golden times - Ajit Wadekar, Bapu Nadkarni, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and the birthday boy Chandu Borde. And it was nothing less than a ‘heavenly’ experience!
