The Engine Room Of Indian Cricket

We often harangue The Times of India for its shoddy, sensationalist and amateurish journalism. However, to reinforce the old addage that the exception proves the rule could not hold any truer in this instance.

An excellent article by
"Siddharth Bhatt from Surat who distributes newspapers at 3.30 am in the morning has been told by his tailor mother, Kavita, that she will somehow send him to the Sarita Sagar cricket academy where pace bowler Munaf Patel also plays. "She now stitches more so that I can have proper food to maintain my fitness," Siddharth says. The family of five often sleeps on just daal and rice, while a well-balanced Gujarati thali is kept aside for Siddharth."
