Dadagiri


Wanted to write this for preety long now…No this is not a biography or to say cricketography of Sourav Ganguly…I just want to dig a little deeper…How he would have felt being thrown out of the Indian team and how amazing it would have been, to comeback…like all other players he has been performing bad, no doubt it was a long long bad patch for him but the “ dada” didn’t deserve the treatment he got…just imagine u r the head of ur family…and suddenly because you don earn anymore u have been thrown out with a promise that the ur comeback if not impossible will be really difficult…is it worth it…I know there is no place for the imperfections in the team but then there should be a style to say “goodbye”…all said and done…ganguly is out of the team…back to his home for a holiday which he can expect to be long…pretty long…what he would have done on this holidays…at the age of 30+ just give up his hope to come back to the team…and then one day declare his retirement…just imagine the way he would have felt watching Indian team play on his TV set…believe me it would have been pensive to see both, Indian team loosing as well as winning…but this man didn’t loose his determination…he went and played domestic cricket…with some players who are not even remotely close to his personality and career…but then he didn’t wanted to stick to his nick name “maharaja” at the cost of a chance to come back and show that he is actually the “maharaja”…so finally he came back…just imagine him entering the hotel where he again see his team but then the time has changed…people may be doubtful as to how to greet him…whether be cool about it or to get excited…some would have loved to see him back, some would have just contemplated the fact…ganguly going back to the field…practicing again with the teammates…but no doubt there will be some discomfort…some inhibitions…some loose ends…some old habits which may not want to die…from being the captain to be just another player…it would have been difficult…u can talk about professionalism and blahh blahh but after all he is also a human being…but to end it here…I just believe that he came back in style…and it would have needed a lot of guts and self-belief…
