And now for the craziest things I have done to watch the match; I remember this anecdote from school.
I was a crazy Sachin fans as a kid (I still am) and I had a deal with my Mom. Whenever Tendulkar was batting, she would write down the latest score and put it in my lunch box and send it with the dabbawala during our lunch break. One day she forgot to do that and I started throwing a tantrum (I was a kid wasn’t I)
The dabbawala promised me that if I ate my lunch, he would tell me the latest score. I agreed and sat down for lunch and he went outside college to look for the nearest electronic store. Once he located it, he memorized Sachin’s score and told me.
When I returned home after one and a half hour, I was delighted to know that Sachin had scored a century!
Throwing a tantrum in school was the craziest thing I’ve done for my love of cricket and Sachin. 🙂
