Who better to define,epitomise this quote other than Rahul Dravid.?
In the age of quick fixes & instant gratification,he is an oxymoron.
In times of loudness, noise and cacophony of wants,he is the epitome of subtlety.
In expressions of rage, outburst,gesture and posture, he is an image of resolve.
His contribution to Indian cricket, and the game of Cricket around the world is undoubted and yet understated.Just like he wants ,perhaps.
In my own small humble way, I’d like to dedicate a few lines to a hero of my generation Rahul Dravid.

This is an appeal to the world media to showcase both sides of the story.

While we go berserk pulling down every angle and aspect of CWG..somewhere we need to start looking inside and see is it just the administrators who have messed up the whole thing or is it largely due to the fact, the way we ,as regular people, lead our lives.?
Are we ready to look beyond our internal problems to start focusing externally?
Is there a connection ? Find out here.
It is very sad that these kind of incidents happen.It is absolutely disgusting to know what you thought to be a sport fought by brave men for riding high on national pride it but merely a farce. It is sad this incident happened – even if at a later stage all of this is hushed up or “amicably” resolved.
