Just miss.....

On 19th March 2000 - cool and breezy Friday evening in a small town near Ooty - an eight year old school boy was running towards his home, holding a small cup in one hand and a cricket bat in the other.

His team had just won the Cricket Tournament in the school and he was declared as the Player of the Tournament. He was so excited. His face was filled with joy and his legs were gathering momentum for every step.

When he reached the home, he could hardly stand, still managed to share this happy news with his parents. However his strict father wasn't much excited by this, rather he got angry and started scolding the little boy.

He wanted his son to concentrate more in studies. He thought cricket would spoil the little boy's studies.

The father took the bat from the little boy and put that into the fire. As the bat was burning in the fire, tears were rolling down the little boy's cheek. He made up his mind to never touch a cricket bat in his life.

Poor little boy!!!

If at all that incident didn't happen on that day,
  • India wouldn't have lost in the first round of 2007 World Cup
  • a Indian player will be the topper for the next Wisden Cricketers of the Century
  • Chennai Super Kings would have had an Icon Player for the Indian Premier League
  • that little boy would have bought the costliest Bugatti Veyron with the money from IPL
  • the Software Industry would have been a little better
  • few strange bugs wouldn't have occurred in the history of software development,
  • ..and you will not be reading this boring blog post.
How strange a simple incident can change the history!!!

Cool post dude. The moment you hinted the boy's current age is 18, i sensed that its going to be about you because i knew you always have the crazy thought assuming yourself half your present age, in spite the fact you look 4 times older your current age :)
