    I donít like what I see in the mirror

    Administrator,

    Please remove this post.

    I got it out of my system. My bad, to have put negative words out there on this forum. I don't want impact anyone else's life with my negative words.

    Listen to your wife, It is still a game.

    As for Tendulkar's innings, all I can say is :-

    "Girte haiN Shahsawaar hi Maidan- e- jung mein,
    Woh Tilf kya Girenge jo Ghutno ke bal chale HaiN"

    A brilliant piece of literature indeed that was sir. Thank you very much. Indeed it was disappointing to see Tendulkar out in that fashion but why do we expect him to do everything? He scored more than 50% of runs India scored today in less than equivalent percentage of deliveries. If 10 other batsmen cannot score 175 runs when one batsman alone makes that uch then it is their shame the team's shame and not Tendulkar's. I am angry and sad as well. But after all it is just a match. And it is only an ODI. I don't think ODIs really are to be taken this seriously unless they are World Cup ODIs. However I must add had it been a test match, I too would have been in despair.

    No you got it all wrong. Sachin makes Indians happy. Be happy.

    Don't you see. I am a coward and I am not dying. But I felt really miserable after match and poured it out. I should have known that every negative word would spread negativity around.

    It's me that I don't like. That I worked hard all my life to build these strengths and achieved everything that I wanted to. And yet I know I have that loser's suicidal trait that is so "Indian" for my generation. And in today's game Sachin showed it to me in all its ugliness, he showed me the mirror. And I don't like what I see about myself. I don't want to live this way. But I know I can not change it in my lifetime, my generation and it makes me frustrated.

    Australians are the best and they don't think these loser thoughts, they don't have these traits. India will get there too, but I can't bear the pain of evolving.

    Sorry to depress you all, feels slightly better to have put these thoughts in to words. TO have got it out of my system, my shame for others to see.

Only tales of his greatness remains, told down the generations by those who lived on. And with that legend, every child born in that generation will hopefully have filtered out that negative trait and learned to only win like Sachin. Win the battles with oneself, with oneís mind, just like Sachin. With the thinking, thought process and traits evolving, I am sure by that time India would have learned to win, without any apology. They would have lost the suicidal trait. Yes, I would love to just die today. I have achieved and accomplished whatever I have to. If only I could be born 100 years down the line with that feeling of winning only. No trace of that suicidal trait.

    I donít like what I see in the mirror. I hate it. I hate myself. I hate you Sachin for giving me this suicidal trait. It is there and I know it. It just wonít go away! Why did you do it, Sachin? Why did you get out in that fashion? Why did we lose the match again? I am sure that the coward that I am, the loser that I am, I will not be able to even die. You are looking at a broken down soul with all its ugliness. Yes, it has the power to rise and again astound you and amaze you. But you simply have to know, just like Ponting, to go along with your motions and I will kill myself. Aah, if only I could be born again a winner. Simply a winner.

    India has given me such highs and the happiness has been immense. But the lows, troughs are more painful then ever. Especially, when Sachin gives them.

    It hurt real bad. I slept the night through. I didn't forget it in the morning. But feeling a bit better.
