Salutation

It was the first time I saw her speaking with someone. She was on the other side of the library hall with one of my friend. They shared a laughter as I approach there, and it appeared like they enjoyed their moment. I greeted my friend and said “Hi” to the Miss. I realized that I will get late to catch the bus so I gave a quick hug to my friend and said goodbye to the Miss. 🙂

The next day, I was sitting on a couch in the corridor, waiting for my next class. There she came, walking in my direction. Her class was next to my class, so she sits and waits. “Hi” I greeted her. She said nothing. :/ Maybe she didn’t hear it. I stood up and moved to my class as my professor entered the classroom. 🤓

I didn’t really know, “If she heard and ignored me, or didn’t she heard my salutation?” I asked myself. 🤔
The class got over. It was an interesting session, but I was very tired. Heading towards the bus station, I saw her walking to-and-fro the bus stop. “So she also takes the bus?” I asked myself. Maybe this time, she will hear my salutation. When I reached the bus stop, I said in a loud voice “Good Afternoon”. Now it was confirmed, I know she won’t reply. 😳

Two weeks later, I was in the Math center, helping junior students with their homework. She came, passed by, and sat down. Miss was really silent. I was able to notice she had a problem, she needed help, but she won’t call the Math tutor. Then she raises her hand and made a sign to call the tutor. Why can’t she just say “Excuse me, sir?” I asked myself. Here my friend came, she greeted me and I greet her back. 🙂

“Can you please help my friend?” my friend asks.
“Sure, I will.” I replied.
“Thanks, and please be patient with her; she is deaf.” 😐

“Please do me a Favor”

Hi 🙂

Before asking you to do me a favor, I would like to share a short story of a Boy and a Girl. This story is about a girl who joined the university, she met a boy who is always kind to her. This story is about few conversation between the girl and the boy before the boy had to move to another city.

“He greeted her ‘Hi’, She didn’t reply.
He gave her a sweet smile, She responded with a sigh.
He showed her the love, he received a shrug.
But when He bid goodbye, She began to cry.”

This reveals that, we don’t need to wait until its too late to tell someone how important they are in your life, how much their presence matters to you. Because when they’re gone, no matter how loud you shout and cry, they won’t hear you anymore. Love the people God gave you because he will need them back one day.

So, I request you to not let go all those people who made you smile, when you don’t even wanted to Smile! Life is short. Smile while you still have teeth. 😀

Now, can you please do me a Favor ? Can you please smile because it suits you. Smile because you’re beautiful, because you’re amazing, because you’re unique, because you can, because tomorrow is a new day, because no matter what you think, someone loves you. Smile because you deserve to.

I hope you always have a reason to Smile 🙂

9/11- Ground Zero

September 11, 2001. A day the whole world will never forget.

Do you remember a world when September 11th was just another day? It’s hard to believe, but this year marks the 13th anniversary. It’s been 13 years since 9/11, 13 years since terrorists hijacked several airplanes, flying two in the World Trade Center in New York City and one each into the Pentagon and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Even in impending death below, 2 people give some solace to each other. “You’re not alone!” No, none of those who were in those unfortunate upper floors of the Towers “deserved” what happened to them, but a couple of people here & there (there were 200+ people who fell from the burning buildings without any hope of rescue) held hands to help each other.

 

9/11 Memorial

9/11 Memorial

A decade after the 9/11 attacks, two gaping voids still sit in the ground where the twin towers of the World Trade Center once loomed. But today the towers’ footprints are filled with reflecting pools and waterfalls, in what is now the 9/11 Memorial. Bronze parapets engraved with the 2,983 names of those who perished in the ’93 WTC bombings and at the hands of terrorists on September 11, 2001 wrap around the pools. The names of the victims are listed not in alphabetical order, but in “meaningful adjacencies” that reflect where they were, their affiliations, or personal relationships (as requested by their surviving loved ones).

After 13 years gone by it still brings goosebumps when we see the documentaries which are telecast. The people who lost their life’s may not be from the same blood but it still feels like they were no different.

Today, tomorrow or 10 years from now – we will remember 9/11, for the husband who told his wife ‘I love you’ one last time before his plane went down. For the wife who stopped in the stairs to call her husband to say ‘I will love you forever’. For the mothers and fathers who kissed their kid goodbye the morning they died. For the policemen who rushed in with the fireman to help others only to die themselves. .

Can’t Imagine Cricket Without Sachin

November 16th 2013, That became the final day for the Cricket Legend Master Blaster Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. Nobody thought that his 200th Test Match will end within 3 days time.

Started His carrier on 15th November 1989 against the worlds greatest fast bowling line up, Pakistan, you can imagine how incredible it would have been when a 17 year old lad facing  deliveries of around 150 Kph. As a kid, i always admired his batting. I remember the time i was getting into cricket, it was 2003 world cup of South Africa. Watching matches all day & my family was involved in it too.

I remember one of the line SRT said after breaking Sunil Gavaskar’s record of maximum centuries in test. He was struggling to get that 35th century & critics were commenting very loudly on his form & ability to play cricket. After completing the century Sachin said ” When People throw Stones at you, you turn them into Milestones”.

Many cricketing legend have said a lot good about Sachin & the passion he has to play cricket. I would like to share an instance which i heard in a television show, one of the cricket legend Sir Don Bradman was watching cricket on his television & he saw Sachin’s batting, he called his wife who was making tea & said her ” Don’t you think this guy bats like me ? ” Bradman’s wife also agreed with it. Bradman was most taken by Tendulkar’s technique, compactness and shot production.

Why no cricketer can be like SRT? Because the simplicity, politeness that guy has is amazing. Serving the nation for 25 years is a very big thing.

A television news giant, British broadcasting corporation’s (BBC) anchor said “Beneath the helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside the cranium, there is something we don’t know, something beyond scientific measure. Something that allows him to soar, to roam a territory of sport that, forget us, even those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot even fathom. When he goes out to bat, people switch on their TV sets and switch off their lives.”

Former Australian Player Mathew Hayden once quoted “I have seen god, he bats at No.4 for India”.

Defining Sachin Tendulkar is very tough, a cricketer, a human being, a master & a lot more.

His last speech which he gave in Wankhede Stadium in his final Test match touched every indian’s heart. It is that mark which he has left on million’s of people all of the world.

“Sachin Sachin.. will definitely reverberate in our ears too”. We’ll miss you Sachin.
