Why I will keep watching the IPL year after year

There is a lot of talk around office and elsewhere amongst pals as to how the interest in IPL is waning. How people are now not that excited as the “India Ka Tyohaar” eighth edition has begun.

#Playingitmyway: The Sachin Tendulkar Autobiography Review

“This book all in all is pretty dry, but for some strange reason in the end it still made me cry”. It perhaps is my little way of being privy to the journey of the hero we have revered so much. The book in itself traverses his journey in finest detail.

Teach him that for every critic there is a friend. It will take time, I know; but teach him, if you can, that the respect earned the hard way is
