It’s a great feeling to tell you about the first ever original music work by Heyyn that is coming out by the end of next month. Heyyn is the same band that I founded with a few other friends living here in Islamabad. We’re more into Sufi, Classical, Folk and Jazz. We will be collaborating with other artists and are really looking forward for the release. This is going to be the the first step of our musical journey. Can’t wait to have your say
When I turned on my laptop this morning, the first thing in my mind was to write a few words about the cricketing god, the little master, the man alone with so many records a whole cricket team couldn’t even get there in ages; the one and the only – Sachin Tendulkar! 4 hours later, my post area in the editor was still empty. A thousand things were going in my mind but I was unable to write a single word. I just didn’t know where to start. I had collected my guts to write about someone who has such tremendous authority over a game with his exceptional talent that my words won’t even qualify to make sense. If you firmly believe one cannot exaggerate this much on someone who is so close to ones heart, you might be getting a little idea what I am talking about.
The love for Sachin is so obvious. Even for a fan of his opponent team, there exists a rather silent support which ultimately comes out at a point; because one cannot lie to himself for long. The fact that Sachin taught millions to love cricket cannot be defied. He stepped into the game at a time, that was foundation of an evolution. The game of cricket after his arrival has changed to a greater extent and the contributions made by the little master cannot be described in this small post by a single person.
Sachin, through his talent and strong will power, has achieved such milestones that an individual cricketer cannot dream of. He has been a team in himself. He has been tremendous. He has been a thousand miles better from what a fan could ever expect a star to be. He is the man who has made his work speak for him!
There is so much to be said but I am afraid, as I mentioned earlier, if my words qualify to praise Sachin. I would end this small tribute to the living legend of cricket by quoting two people who don’t need any introduction either.
“Sachin Tendulkar is Muhammad Ali and the Michael Jordan of cricket”. - Brian Lara.
“There will not be another Sachin Tendulkar” - Shane Warne
Millions out there are paying their respect in their own way as Sachin Tendulkar’s last test match in on its way. I join you all by saying THANK YOU SACHIN.
