Loving the Moment

Hammayya deggarundi world cup gelipinchesaanu.. ainaa naademundilendi maastaaru pillalu kooda nenu cheppinattu aadesaaru.. manchi future undi vaallaki asala :)))... ento mandu kottakundaane kallu taagina koti typelo undi naa paristiti, ainaa naa praanaaniki adokkate takkuva..

Jumping, diving, creeping, crawling, running, screaming, swearing whatever they did it was all a delight to see the restricted run rate in the early Lankan batting... then the disbelief at how they bashed and thrashed the last 5 overs, then the shocking dismissal of Sehwag and Sachin following too soon after dropped me from that high to the deepest depression and disbelief... Being away from the match related stuff for the past nearly 10 to 15 yrs, I did not know much about Gambhir or Virat or the new ones, just hoped that he does some miracle and brings us back in to the match which seemingly slipped in front of our eyes...ball after ball, prayer after prayer... silently screaming within, afraid to make a sound as if it would distract the batsman....phew, never a dull moment... the cheer comment BLEED BLUE did not work so we got more specific.. Bleed the lighter shade of blue to bring in more clarity to our prayers :).... dirty dancing on the streets and the rallies after the win even in the village, the crackers... aye baboooooooooooooooye.

Loved every single bit of the match.. it came to a point where I was left to bite the fingers chewing off the nails which are usually nonexistent beyond the root... and like Chandu aptly said, the stomach was a sanctuary of butterflies, millions of them in fact... stopped breathing when waiting for the result from the third umpire, prayed real bad for the bowlers of the Lankan team to err and give away runs for Indian batsmen to hit nothing less than a 4, screams, shouts, total silence... Indo-Pak match appudu kasepu kunuku teeste match better formloki vacchesindi, so naa vantu krushigaa Indian batting appudu oka mini-sleep esi lecha and of course, it did work because I see Gambhir in great form and India still holding strong with consistent performance...

gunde gontulo kottukodam ante ento last 2 overslo telisindi, dhak dhak dhak dhak sound oori chivari daaka vinipinchenta gattigaa, kshanam kooda relax avvakundaa choosina match.. the Baap of all the matches I have ever watched.. the truly deserving, top class unmatched performance.

I kind of had this gut feeling when the kid chose Srilanka as her choice of winner when I gave her a choice..
Me -- Naanu India gelichi? Srilanka Gelicihi?
Kid -- Siya pandu India, cheelanka gelichi.. (she thinks anything related India means it is for Siya pandu and everything else is the other choice provided).
Me -- Nijamgaane Chee Lanka, say that India will win, just wish India good luck...
Kid -- Vaddu Amma... Cheelankaa gelichi.. siya baby India.

I stopped correcting the kid because the previous match she chose Pakistan gelichi and after seeing their fate, I just wished she maintains her stand throughout... and yes, I make her wear blue and by default do not wear anything that is blue in color to keep blues away... can go on and on and on... dont know what has worked in favor but we did win...

I love Lays and out of all the 6 flavors, I love the taste of India :))... gulping down litres of soda, munching down Lays, tensed and tensed... we made it to the CUP.. the dream, the mania that gripped the nation including our household...

Typical Indian kada.. papam chacchi chedi chaavu tappi kannu lottapoyina typelo tayarayyi.. aragadeesi iragadeesi brammaandam baddalayyetattu team antaa aadeste nenu naa kooturu credit kottestunnaam :)...

Broken Gambhir's bat, crampy Dhoni's body.. the wonderfully understated and truly deserved captain's inning performance and the accepting speech in which he answers everyone or rather silences everyone..... now that the cup is in hands no one really gave him credit in the acceptance speeches or on the ground for that matter but it is undeniably his show all through... , I loved his choice of not sending Yuvi right after Kohli, he most certainly would have gotten Gambhir out with his extra enthu (my feeling it is).. barring the decision to pick Sreesanth everything was fine and maybe he had reasons for that too and like he said he had to answer himself before he shut up everyone around him.. loved that ice cool man.. under that tremendous pressure.. tension seemed miles away from him... calm and aggressive at the same time...love every single thing....he went all out and he got it  for us...

Sachin, the master blaster, perhaps his last world cup event, truly deserves it dedicated to him...  Though not in this particular final decider match, he had been a consistent performer over many years.

appudeppudo maa taatalu netulu taagaaru maa mootulu vaasana choodandi typelo 28 ella naati world cup mucchatlu cheppukuni cheppukuni visugocchesina ee taraaniki saripadinanta aanandam... varasa petti Aussieski malle hatrick kotteyyaali world cups lo ani oka balamaina korika... :).

and last but not the least... the FB cheering invite from Chandu & Hema and the way we connected across the globe, mind blowing... I actually stopped posting cheer comments on the profile because each time I wished for something the exact opposite happened some serious anti-jinxing needs to be done you see...

Even my mom tried to stay awake but could not.. but she wanted to be informed of the Indian Victory which she said would be praying for in her sleep.. sigh :).

the kid's friends came about after the match jumping the walls not waiting for me to open the gates because they did not want to miss the happiness and neither did I... the happiness in their faces, their chest a few inches or maybe a few feet wider with pride... awesome... could not resist shaking and waking up the kid to whisper our victory to her, who just smiled and slept of saying Siya Baby India, Sachin, Dhoni.. Jai Ho.. (yeah, I taught her that.. any man in blue is Sachin or Dhoni for her) and some one with colored hair is Maaaaaaalinga .................. what a day!!!!  I guess the hangover would at least stay on for a week...
