Fever of Retro Songs on me

I have always been a person who never liked old songs. I just ignore them.

Suddenly, in a cab, the cabbie turned the radio on and retro hits were being played. I couldn't ask to change the station as I begun liking them.

Now I am just going mad for the songs. Some of the songs I am liking a lot are I am a disco dancer, Duniya mein logon ko, Jaane ja dhoondta phir raha, Om shant om, etc.

My earplugs are out of the bag and are being used after a lot time. Retro songs are so good. Surely, old is gold.

The song I am liking the most is "Duniya mein logon ko". The song is amazing. The new remix version in "Once Upon a time in Mumbaai" is better. Here is a video of it. I hope you guys enjoy it.

Happy Birthday, Virender Sehwag

Well it's a known fact that I am an ardent fan of Virender Sehwag. And guess what, it is his birthday today. How could it be possible that I won't celebrate it.

What Viru likes the most to eat in sweets is a typical Indian sweet, Kheer. I hate Kheer, but just on 20th October every year, I ask my mother to make it so that I can have it, celebrating Sehwag's birthday.

Yesterday (19th October) his elder son, Aryaveer turned 3 years old. These two days certainly bring a double doze of happiness to Sehwag's house.

I just hope that Sehwag continues to play cricket the way he does. We all love his cricket, don't we, and I'm sure every Indian is proud of him.

You guys can wish him on his Twitter account: @virendersehwag

This is the pic he uploaded on Twitter. I loved it, and thought of sharing it here.

How I met my idol, Virender Sehwag

I still remember the day when I met Sehwag. It was the 5th December, 2009. On 3rd December, 2009, Sehwag came out to bat at the Brabourne pitch of Mumbai. I was in my college. At around 12 noon, my friends messaged me that Viru is on fire as he reached 100. I was excited, but more jealous as my friends were in the stadium itself. Well, there was no chance I could bunk my lectures as those 3 days were the compulsory one. To add insult to injury, I had Physics practicals from 3 to 6. This meant watching this awesome inning of Viru was impossible for me.

At around 2:30, again my friends SMSed me that Viru has gone passed 200. My excitement was over the moon. I requested the professors a lot, but they did not allow me to go. Sadly, I missed the bulk of that inning. When I heard that Viru reached 250, I just did not care what my college will do if I bunk my Physics practicals. I picked up my bag, took the bus and went home to see the match on the television. All my efforts went waste as when I reached, Dravid was facing the second last delivery of the day off Murali.

Well, I was really sad that I couldn't see Sehwag bat, but I was extremely happy as a triple century was almost certain for Sehwag. He had already scored two triple centuries and was not out on 286 after the end of the day.

How could I ever miss the chance of watching Viru reach his milestones! Next day, I decided to bunk my Chemistry practicals and headed towards the stadium. Along with me were my three friends, Anmol (a big Dravid fan), Yogesh (cricket fan and likes Gambhir) and Samkit (just has some interest in cricket). The day begun and I was nervous. Sehwag needed just 14 runs to reach his third triple century. No player ever has achieved the milestone of scoring three triple centuries ever. The day begun and Dravid struck a six over long on to Herath in the very first over. My friend Anmol was over the moon.

Unfortunately, Sehwag missed out on a triple. He was caught and bowled by Muttiah Muralitharan. I was very upset and had tears in my eyes. Rest of the day was just painful for me.

After the end of the day's play, I decided to go and meet Viru, and Anmol wanted to meet Dravid. The security was tight and they did not allow us to move in. However, we managed to meet Tillakartne Dilshan, Mahela Jayawardene, Ajantha Mendis and Lasith Malinga. Team India had gone back to the hotel.

I couldn't stop myself from meeting Viru. Then, I saw the Neo Cricket cricket commentator, Archana Vijaya. I was knowing her as I had chats with her sometimes on Facebook. I broke the security and went to meet here. Took an autograph, a snap and asked her to make me meet Viru and Anmol meet Dravid. She said us to return back next day morning.

Anmol and I reached the ground at 8:30. Archana Vijaya saw us and asked us to come in. Then at first, I was made to met Viru. The producer of Neo Cricket helped me go past the security to meet my idol, Virender Sehwag. What a moment for me! The moment of my life. The guards were not at all happy with me coming to the ground and wanted to get me out of the ground as soon as possible. For that reason, I could just meet Sehwag for around 10 seconds. I managed to take his autograph, but a snap wasn't possible.

Those 10 seconds will surely by one of the best 10 seconds ever in my life.

Enjoy some snaps guys....

My favorite cricketer, Virender Sehwag gets the ICC test cricketer of the year award

Yesterday, the ICC Awards 2010 took place in Bangalore. All the Indians had huge expectations from the two greatest cricketers India has ever produced, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag.

My idol, Sehwag was nominated in two categories.

  • ICC Cricketer of the year
  • ICC Test Cricketer of the year
Sehwag couldn't win the ICC Cricketer of the year, but he managed to proudly receive the award for the best cricketer in the original format of the cricket game, the tests.

After receiving the award, Viru said,

"It's fantastic to win the award, to take over the title from Gautam Gambhir, I think I got motivated when Gambhir got this award last time, I was discussing with him that I hope I get it this time and I got it. I'm a huge fan of Test cricket and I love to play it more than Twenty20 or one-day cricket. When I was growing up, I was playing lot of 10-over, 12-over games, so I had to score off every ball, same thing I have continued. I followed my instincts and played in the same way in T20, ODI and Tests. It's a great strength to have."

Sehwag scored 1,282 runs in the past year with an average of 85. Sehwag was also named in the ICC Test XI 2010.
