Girl who conquers the seas

In India, Cricket is the only sport which has huge fan following and will be in headlines. Rest of the sports are never taken in to account.  One such underachievement was the youngest to swim in the Antarctic waters. It belongs to Bhakthi Sharma, a girl who conquers the oceans. She started swimming at the age of two and half where kids can barely walk. She was born in Mumbai and brought up in Udaipur. Her mother is a national-level swimmer. She trains Bhakthi from a very young age.

Girl who was born again on the mountain

First of all, I want to thank willofsteel site for showcasing a lot of unsung heroes. Most of their stories were heart touching while I am hearing about it for the first time. I always wonder why India doesn't produce Benthany Hamilton or Corporal Todd Love. Finally, when I read about Arunima Sinha's Mount Everest climb; I stand and salute her. I would like to share her story, which will inspire anyone reading this post.

I see Humans but no Humanity

It was a hot day in Chennai. I got stuck in a heavy polluted traffic, it was a long queue. I was already late for a meeting. Mr.Aditya was a leading industrialist, he is waiting for me to discuss his future insurance plans. I got a call from Mukesh sir, my boss. He urges me to attend the client immediately. I lie him that I will be there in a few mins. My job is never an easy one. I used to travel at least 100 km a day. It will drain you both mentally and physically. I am waiting in the first row, timer was now in 55 seconds. It should be clear soon.

A Gift to remember

My Mom is visiting me for the first time since I moved to the new city. She was a school teacher, it's her nature that she asks so many questions. She usually scolds me for pretty much everything I do, but always loves me. I kind of miss her these days. To my surprise, she arrived earlier than the expected time. I welcome her in the door. She hugs me and immediately notice the smell. She asked, "whether you have taken a bath ?" I replied "Yes, mom but it was yesterday." She angrily responded "First go and take bath Sanju."

Blogger Dream Team - Cricket World Cup

I am accessing world cup based upon the  performanceCricket is a sport loved by billions in our nation.  I follow cricket from 2003 world cup, where Indians lost to the mighty Aussies. I was heart-broken when Sachin was out in the first over of the massive target(359/2). In that era, 350 plus chase was not possible. Today, the game has changed drastically with the invention of T20 games, new rules, power-plays, heavy bats, etc. Nowadays, teams are even ready to chase 400 plus targets. Let's analyse batting, bowling and fielding individually in detail.

Bluestone #SoundOfLove

Today is my 34th birthday, as I am getting one year older. I look myself in-front of the mirror and wonder what all went wrong over a few years. I have a few white hairs and my body isn't fit as it was before. There are a few wrinkles in my face as well.
