the sports

an important update - we have some drawings, which won the awards at the drawing competition that we organised at sankalp for the underprivileged children, up for sale. if you want to contribute, you might like buying one of these sweet drawings. please click here for a detailed post and camera pictures of these drawings.

written couple of evenings back...

someone rightly said that sports brings out the character in you.

and that be you in the game or outside the field.

romania and italy's tie that just concluded, i saw just the 2nd half of the game. it was a fabulous game with great passes, incredible shots at goal that went unconverted. but the best part of the game was about mutu. the player with jersey number 10. probably the most popular footballer from their country and the most talented one too. the one who produced gems in the match. the one who gave the team the lead [although a short lived one]. the one who played the earlier tie even when his grandmother passed away just 4 days back because he wanted to give his team, his country the benefit of his talent. the one who took the penalty in this match, a great chance to take lead again, and missed it. he was distraught, almost in tears, like he has lost someone as precious as grandma again.

you see it all in just one match. a great talent blossoming and humbled by the game.


i asked naveen, who is married and has the television inside his bedroom [he is also a sports buff], how does he manage to watch both the matches of euro 2008 nearly everyday [2nd of which starts at half past midnight]. that too after watching the 1st one which gets over only by quarter past 11 when his wife [who is like all girls who might like sports but can't stand back to back midnight games] doesn't seem to appreciate it. he with glint in his eyes and mischief all over his face replies, the foreplay goes a tad longer these days ;-)
