I was just having a look on my timeline at Twitter.
Observed that my hero Sachin Tendulkar was trending there in top 20 list.
Which leads to so many memories comes up in my mind related to my small obsession with my hero.
Here are some of them :
- I still remember I left everything when Sachin was on the crease.
- When India bats second, I always get dissapointed because than I had to wait for extra 3 hours to see my hero batting.
- We played with local bats made up of wood, and I always stick MRF sticker on front of my bat only to mimic Sachin’s bat.
- If anyone said bad about Sachin, than I get annoyed, and this tectic had been used specially by my father and uncle. They purposely said something bad about Sachin only to tease me😉
- I always took Sachin type of Stance whenever I went to bat.
- Always try to play straight shots as Sachin do.
- And when Sachin got out early in the innings, than for me the whole match was waste. I still remember in 2003 world cup final, how I abandoned the whole match after sachin got out early in the innings.
- I practice in my room with Sachin’s picture in front of me.
- Me too have cried when Sachin announce his retirement.
- And I have just finished reading Sachin’s autobiography🙂
May be these are the little things for others and may have done by thousands of other Sachin’s fan, but still these were the lovely moments for me to cherish always…

It is very rightly said by someone that when success comes than you are the boss, but when it is not, than you have to be dictated by other’s terms and conditions till you achieved that level.
Same thing I have observed in 2016 Kabaddi World Cup finals, when the influence of politicians are so much which you may have observed while presenting the winning trophy, as the minsters were not eager to move away from the team even after presenting the trophy, as they were more interested in getting the limelight, than finally someone from the production team came and requested them to move.
But that will not observed in cricket as in present situation cricket in India is much more above than anyone else, it does not depends on any politician mercy for support or any financial help because the polpularity itself brings a lot of advertisements, but that is not in the case of Indian Kabaddi team, even when they have won the world cup 8 times, and due to this reason they have to depend on the mercy of these politicians.
Even the major news papers of India like Times Of India, Telegraph, Dainik Bhaskar, does not even show them on their front page, given the small space in their sports page, but even the slightest big news of cricket can easily make their space on the front page.
So basically our system is responsible for making other sports to be dependant on the politicians, and making one sport exception.
But I will just say, “Every dog has a day”…
Hope this may come true for Kabaddi, Hockey or any other sport in India to succeed.

What happened when you received the YES answer to your “once in a lifetime asked question”, and that question was a part of a statement… I love you Suhan, do you love me…
But when Adi received the yes answer of his question after 4 days, he has gone mad, and was smiling for the whole day and the whole family was confused what happened to their son.
Adi and Suhan, after starting their new relationship, starts exchanging smiles and watching each other through the corner of their eyes in college, but not openly talking to each other with the fear of people’s gossip.
Then there comes a day when they had decided to meet with each other after one month of their relationship with the help of common friends who were also in relationship.
The boy had the two wheeler in home, but unfortunately it was busy with his father, so he had to borrow the bike from the same friend who had arranged their meeting.
Finally four of them meet at one of the famous restaurant in their city, and after observing Adi, Suhan and their hesitation, in front of them, their friends decided to leave them for some time.
Than finally they had started to talk to each other, while the Adi’s face was shining with a cute smile on his face but on the other side Suhan was blushing like Roses.
Over time, they talked a lot more from family to personal things, from hobbies to films, while in between Adi tried to touch Suhan’s hand, but before he could do anything she had sensed that and retracted her hand and the dissappointment was clearly visible on Adi’s face, but after some time for the Adi’s surprise, he had sensed the most beautiful touch on his hand.
Finally their friends arrived as it was the time to go home, and both the new love birds were dissapointed, but as the meeting’s end came close, Adi reflexly touched his lips to her cheeks.
With smiles on their faces, they say good bye to each other with the promise to meet again shortly…
In the night when she called him, the first sentance he said, what a day it was… totally awesome, totaly memorable and totally lovable, because of you my love… 💖

You might be thinking giving one thought and one second to someone is a minute thing, you can happily give to anyone without any problem (I assume so).
I want your 1 thought and 1 second only for the tiniest thing in this world, which you can do with your left hand, but in return of your this tiniest effort you can earn a lot,which may not be visible to you or anyone but it do reflects in this world.
I just want your 1 Thought and 1 Second mainly for two things :
- To close the water tap, when not in use, and,
- To switch off the light, when not in use.
You might be thinking how stupid I am to write about this topic and wasting your time. You may be right in thinking like this because you are fortunate enough to have both of these things in ample amount and you may have observed that even in your surroundings everyone has that.
But I would advise you just travel outside in suburban areas and villages, where they crave for both of the above things, because they do not have this in ample amount like you.
Secondly you may be thinking that it’s not your responsibilty to think about them, as you already have more important things to think about. But do trust me when all the population start thinking like this, than the harmful effects will surely reflects to you also.
Thirdly, you may think that it is government’s responsibilty to do these things, and yes it is. But on a ground level, your tiniest effort also required to bring out the change.
Why I said 1 thought and 1 second, because I have observed that closing the running tap and switch off the lights when not in use, does not require effort, it only requires the mentality or attitude to do that, and once you form that attitude than you would start doing these two things effortlessly as if they are a part of your nature.
And when others start seeing you doing these good efforts, than most probably they will also start doing the same thing and that is how the goodness spreads🙂

The largest and the most important transportation network, which is the backbone of our country since beginning, and which remains in news, may be because of political reasons, or because of accidental reasons, or most importantly because of welfare reasons.
And this blog would just inform you all with one more good reason for which it is in news, and this is the “Insurance Scheme” which railways has started for its passengers.
Some days before, I was doing reservation for my professor through my ID on IRCTC, I observed that there is one option of taking Insurance for the passengers, in the lower part of screen.
I thought it is same as that of flights which require few hundred rupees, so I tried to skip it, and hits the ‘next’ button to go for final payment, but the error occured and said Insurance part to be tick.
Than that time only, I read the terms and conditions, which clearly states that would be requirement of only 1 rupee premium for the insurance of thousands of rupees.
I was like, Wao, that’s the really good method to support those who faces the bad luck during their journey and met the disaster.
Main insurance companies participated in this scheme are ICICI Lombard and Royal Sundaram.
One such example of this scheme is :
Well I must praise to the Indian Railways to come up with this type of scheme, which is a Win Win situation for both the railways and the passenger, and just wishing it keeps the innovative work going…

Hello Anshul, the 16th,
I know you had enjoyed your sweet 16 age very much, and had done a lot of things, some of which you were proud of and some of which you may want to never occur.
You were at 10th standard at that time, and after having the glorious 9th standard, which was your turning point, you were at your heights in studies and also in co-curricular activities.
I still remember how Papa said to you when you visited him to your shop on your birthday that “This is your sweet 16 age”, in a teasing manner, and you was blushing.
However it was indeed that age when you were transforming from the phase, which was still immature and still want to open more, to that phase, which was supposed to have full maturity along with full responsibility of yourself, in short, you were in a transition phase, where the chances of unthinkable event to occur was very much.
And it do occured with you, which changes your future, in a very profound way, they were :
- Had a bad time when you and your close friends, were caught while bunking the school on festival day.
- Second event was more profound as You had committed yourself in a relationship, which is still going on, where you are playing a part of a good husband🙂
These two things really affected you and your character.
One more event I remember, which you still boasts about that how you barely manage to pass in MATHS Subject 10th board with the passing marks, and you and your partner still fights, who had got more marks in Maths, as both of you were dumb in Maths and both were on the dangerous line.. lol..
But I still remember, you were the Vice Captain of your House Nagarjuna, and you were so much passionate about winning the compititions for yourself and for your house. I can still recall the event when you were teaching the KG children how to recite the poems in compitition with so much efforts, and even teaching them the body language with their recitation, and I must admit that was still inspiration for me.
One last thing I remember that you had started thinking about your future as Doctor, and started telling others that you would definitely become a Doctor, and the good thing is you have achieved that🙂
Thank you my 16th year for the valuable experiance you have given me…
Dr. Anshul, the 28th.

In India, the word West Bengal and Durga Puja, always comes simultaneously, and there is strong reason for it because here the people are madly in love with their beloved God Durga, who is known for destroying the evil forces and bring peace.
If you found yourself in Kolkata during Durja Puja, than you are lucky as you can witness at any place the “Pandal”, which is as grand as any filmy set and as awesome and beautifully made as you can not think of it, because here in Kolkata the pandals of Durga Puja costs in lakhs with hundreds of footfalls during each day.
So I am lucky to be in kolkata since two years and able to witness the madness or I should the correct word devotion towards Maa Durga.
This year in Durga Puja, me with my colleagues done something new. We all had decided to go for “Pandal Hopping” together, so for this we had booked a traveller for 20 persons.
That was an awesome time for all of us to roam on the roads of Kolkata, hopping from one pandal to another, walking on the roads amd experiance the joy in the “city of joy”.
I had enquired about the pandals from the local citizen, they had said that the preparation for pandal making starts from 2-3 months before and there was expenditure of about 20-30 lakhs in normal pandals, and I must say that is huge.
But if you observe the pandals, than you would fall in love with its beauty and design, than you could imagine the hard work they had done.
Overall it was nice outing with all, and making the memories…
In next blog, I will post pictures of Pandal Hopping, and grandness of kolkata’s durga puja, which you can read here.

My excitement was the same as that of the small child, who has just seen the new toy in front of him, as I had seen the India-New Zealand Test Match Ticket in my hand.
Why not ? I was going to see the International Match first time in my life, that too in the Eden Gardens, “Mecca” of the Indian Cricket.
My search for the tickets starts on the saturday evening at Ticketgenie.com, which is the official website where tickets can be found, but I was dissapointed when it shows no availability. Than I checked about the timings when it could be available on ground, but it could be available only after 10am, which means I was going to loose initial couple of hours, but I had no option.
So on the Sunday Morning, we reached eden around 11pm (because of sunday morning extra sleep), and very easily got tickets from the Mohammedan Sporting Club, which was situated just outside of eden gardens. I was like yeeeeeee….
Than finally we headed to the ground which is about 200m from where we have purchased tickets and parked our vehicle.
Inside the Eden Gardens, the environment were terrific, even it is a test match, but still there were Aahhhh and Uuuuhhhh, whenever the Indian batsman misses the balls and there were roars when he hits fours or sixs.
Yes we were lucky to see almost half of the Indian team batting, as in front of me they had loose 6 wickts within 100 runs.
We have been there for the whole second session that is from lunch to tea, after that we departed.
Tickets were also cheap, only between 100-200 rupees.
Overall it was an awesome outing watching the International Match first time that too in a big place.

Just returned from Bhutan trip on this Puja vacations, and I experianced this beautiful country from so many ways and most of my experiances were good in this Land of Thunder Dragon.
But I have observed some good rules and wonderful practices which I don’t see in my country India.
Some of the good practices in Bhutan are :
- People have an awesome sence of cleanliness, you will see how much they use their dustbins (however the people of Sikkim in India are more concerned about cleanliness, which shares its border with Bhutan)
- If you cross the road by using the zebra crossing, or even when zebra crossing is not there, than also the cars stops almost 20 metres before as if they give preferenace to your safety first than anything else.
- They park their vehicles only in designated parking slot, and have a fear of traffic police, which makes their road congestion free.
- They return or take money with their both hands and along with a sweet smile.
- When you talk to them or ask for any help, they would reply you very softly, and you get the feeling that they really want to help you.
- They have a sence of attachment to the nature, while doing trekking to Taktsang Monestery, one of the tourists was about to throw the plastic water bottle into the trees as she was handling so many things with her both hands and wants to decrease some stuff, but out of the blue one of the local citizen came and said that instead of throwing bottle into the trees, you just gave it to me, I will handle this !! Have you seen this any where else ??
So my simple question to you all is that, For all these awesome practices, only the government is responsible by making strict rules and implement them, or the citizens of that country are highly responsible for maintaining their own country, like Bhutanese do ???
