Alas! I am still stuck at 13During my childhood, I used to follow cricket very closely. Sunil Gavaskar was one of my favourite cricketers. Due to the absence of television, I used to depend on radio. During those days, we could get to listen to the commentaries of even important domestic matches. Gavaskar was a very cautious player, he used to build his score very slowly. And at 99, he was very very cautious. He took enormous time to take a single to reach the hundred. Sometime he used to take almost one hour to take that all-important run, and as an avid follower, could not leave the radio during those long period while Gavaskar used to bat at 99.
But when the batsmen used to bat at 13, all of them tried to cross that unlucky score very quickly. But my case in ISC is totally opposite. I have been occupying the 13th rank for more than one month. Despite serious effort on my part during the last one month, I am stuck at 13-no promotion, no demotion!
Today is Sunday, the day when the individual ranks change in ISC. But Alas! Even today, I am firmly holding the rank of 13.
