Cricket in Mountains


Was attending a talk today , saw a documentary by amit tyagi on a serious topic. someone told that ,”even if people age there is a piece of that same old childhood within us and we behave the same if brought into those situations.our batch from college formed a whatsapp grp which has all 55 year old. Intrisincally everyone behaved the same much like our old days.” It was a good learning experience overall and once again i would like to state the importance of hanging out with people of different age groups. In my various experiences i have found a talk with a old person very interesting.
This pic here is of cricket i played with kids for fun at a village named Supi in uttrakhand. I had taken an overnight bus from delhi. It was full with people going for an exam and they fooled around the entire night keeping everyone awake. The next morning i travelled around 200 kms in the valleys changing 3 vehicles and nine hours.
As usual a set of tents in a village attracts attention and we were the center of attraction for the kids. I met a guy who was a akshay kumar fan and later asked them for a game of cricket. No matter how old u get , in india if you get a chance to bat you bat because cricket is a religion here and you can’t say no ever. With a small log of wood hacked properly to hold it , i did try to attempt a few cover drives on a muddy pitch overlooking green mountains.
To talk of the documentary i would just leave you with a thought that when you are real old and helpless will it be a walk to the old home or family and do u psycologically believe that aging is just a thing of mind ?

  1. The mind stays young but the body reminds us that we’re not

    1. But ultimately it is all about the mind

    Bonding with anyone is easy in India. The common topics are cricket, Bollywood and politics! Just check the sides though ☺
    Which place did you visit in uttarakhand?

    The mind does stay young but our bodies age. Having said that despite have had both hips replaced due to arthritis, I feel very good and feel just a good as I did 10 or 20 years ago. Maybe better than 25-30 years ago because that was when I had young children and I was always tired! lol
