Treasure Island

Subbaraman N V

(31st July 1941 / Karaikkudi - Tamilnadu- India)


Ganguly- the great, Sourav- the ' fab '
Will be ever green in the cricket map!

One is never bigger than the game
But sure you are bigger than its fame!

Thousands like me never seen face to face
In our minds you face never an erase!

In life you have seen the thick and thin
In million hearts never you were thin!

No more to be seen in the Test ground
Never a substitute can be found!

Great deeds and men ever remain green
Hardly such deeds and men can be seen!

Good things or bad, have to see an end
For the Nation's pride you are God-sent!

Know not much of the game in the field
Joy to watch, gave indeed a great yield!

Captains have come and captains have gone
Tallest indeed you are, we have seen!

Peace and grace, joy and health be with you
To love all, serve all and help all-through!

    'The Great' are many
    But Ganguly....
    Showed one and all
    Hows is to 'Rise Above All'
    The sheer courage and will power
    Rampaged in field of cricket.

    i don't quite understand since i believe it is culture related,
    but i love your words, it's enough to give me imagery about how great Ganguly is.

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
