बापू! ये वरदान का साइड इफेक्ट है…

भयानक काल कोठरी में अकेले बैठे बापू ने मुंह पर भिनभिनाती असंख्य मक्खियों को उसी तरह उड़ाया जिस तरह तमाम आरोपो को उड़ाते आये हैं। तभी रक्त पिपासु मच्छर नये इल्जामों की तरह आये और टूट पड़े। हे नारायण तुम कहा हो— दंश से तड़पकर बापू ने आर्तनाद किया। कोई और होता उसकी करुण पुकार क्रूर काल कोठरी की दीवारों से टकरा वापस आती और उसी के कानो में गुम हो जाती। लेकिन बापू कोई मामूली

And India Won The Inaugural World T20

As Misbah moved a little to his right to loft the ball over fine leg and the ball soared in the air, I realised I was a second away from mentally freezing, like a lot of Indians did in 1985, when Miandad won the game against us with a six( that too shielding a number 11 batsman). As the ball’s trajectory followed gravity, I closed my eyes, took a deep breath, put my fingers on
