7 Predicaments of being Sachin Tendulkar


1. Uninvited Ashes flops, of Australian variety and twittering tendency, pop up for free lunch and free tuition;

2. You have to listen to your garrulous bats;

3. You are asked to recall the Hypocritic...err...Hippocratic Oath and check the pulse of Test and ODI, lying on deathbed side-by-side, before suggesting remedies;

4. You have to reveal something as intimate as your DNA profile for a foul 30 kg coffee table book;

5. You have a fight to fight with no less than AK Anthony and his defence ministry over a Mussoorie bungalow;

6. You have a duty to inspire not only budding cricketers but also actors of cricket movies. e.g. Shreyas Talpade;

7. Vinod Kambli has quit international cricket only, not reality shows.

Right, I think I speak for everyone when I say "Leave Sachin Alone!" and I would like to thank you for bringing this up.

"You have to reveal something as intimate as your DNA profile for a foul 30 kg coffee table book" is classic!

Achettup, now we know Tendulkar is ready to reveal everything except his whereabout.

Moving about with a Ferrari in Mumbai, pretty sure no one will know about his whereabouts.

Som said...

Scorpi, and he uses fake beards, glasses and what not while driving that Ferrari at some ungodly hour in Mumbai!

along side there are some obvious benefits too... like you don't have to field...

scorpicity said...

I mean there shouldn't be many ferrari's in Mumbai. What use is that beard :)

Som said...

SP, and also people line up to say THANK YOU SACHIN!

Som said...

Scorpi, I have beard but not Ferrari. Wish it was the other way round.:)

Ha! Another gem!

I had to actually click on the link about the DNA. Gosh! It's a strange world isn't it?

Som said...

VM, strange indeed. I would imagine an ex-ray of Tendulkar's 'tennis elbow' on cover page of some anatomy book.
