# Celebrations # Cricket

Its a dream come BLUE India ..

To many around the World , yesterday still seems surreal ..after all its not everyday you win the coveted WORLD CUP ..
but Team INDIA has done it ,
Team INDIA has done us proud ..
and they are well deservingly the new WORLD CUP Champions ..
Woooohoooooooooooooo :D :D

I can tell you its been a long and arduous wait - 28 years and for most , like me ,having little or no recollection of that historic day in 1983 when it all first happened , this is what we've craved and prayed for -
to see India rewrite history once in our lifetime ..
and the dreams of a billion Indians for whom cricket is religion , for whom cricket is life have FINALLY been fulfilled ..

It really doesn't get any bigger or better than this and I am certain that every Indian , however ardent a fan of cricket he may or may not be , is still a very proud Indian today..

My favorite moment of the day most definitely was when Sachin Tendulkar said " It’s the proudest moment of my life. It’s never too late... "

For someone whose been around 21 long years and whose unflinching dedication to the sport and nation is and will be an inspiration for generations to come ...
Indeed , its never too late ..

This one's for you Sachin , from your team and from every Indian - an early , but surely the best'est' birthday gift ..
Happy Birthday ..
