Chest-thumping is best left to the gorillas. But an equal truth is a blogger, in the heart of hearts, craves for recognition.
Have no illusion. A blogger doesn't mint money. At least I have not seen one. A comment here, a link there makes his/her day.
Doosra did not go from town to town telling people when Patrick Kidd -- god bless him -- included the blog in the Best of the Web he compiled for The Times.
Nor did it made a song and dance about its inclusion in the ICC blogroll.
Based on Telegraph Sports readers' recommendation -- may their tribe increase – Rod Gilmour now lists Doosra as No. 1 of the top 20 cricket websites.
Time to release the words which have been fluttering like a butterfly inside the bosom.
Whoever sees these words. Thank you all.
