About a hundred years ago, a man looked at the morning newspaper and to his surprise and horror, read his name in the obituary column. The news papers had reported the death of the wrong person by mistake. His first response was shock. Am I here or there? When he regained his composure, his second thought was to find out what people had said about him. The obituary read, "Dynamite King Dies." And also "He was the merchant of death." This man was the inventor of dynamite and when he read the words "merchant of death," he asked himself a question, "Is this how I am going to be remembered?” He got in touch with his feelings and decided that this was not the way he wanted to be remembered. From that day on, he started working toward peace. His name was Alfred Nobel and he is remembered today by the great Nobel Prize. Just as Alfred Nobel got in touch with his feelings and redefined his values, we should step back and do the same.26.03.2012 Board meeting hosted by Rtn. PP. Sundar What is your legacy?

3 28-3-2012 Rahul Dravid – the true legend How many of you will those games. You captained both the Test and one-day agree with me if I tell you teams. Sure, things didnt go according to plan but you that Rahul Dravid was a were a superb on-field captain. More importantly you Greater Batsman than were Indias finest vice-captain, an aspect that is often either Sunil Gavaskar or conveniently forgotten. Jeez, you even took some Sachin Tendulkar? I know wickets it is still considered Eight out of Dravids ten highest impact batting blasphemous to put Rahul performances of his career are from this period. Two Dravid over Sachin are after this period, interestingly none before it. This Te n d u l k a r o r S u n i l tells a very clear story – how Indian cricket changed Gavaskar, but the obvious between 1996 and 2011, and the hugely significant fact - backed by statistics - contributions Dravid made towards that change. is that Dravid has been He spent more time in the nets than the others, he Indias greatest match worked on his fitness, he worked on the little things that winner for a long time now.It is now unanimously agreed that the Golden Age ofIndian cricket (which is now officially over) commencedin March 2001 when India beat Australia after following-on in the second Test at Kolkata. From then till June2006 when India won a series in West Indies for the firsttime in 35 years on the back of another series-definingperformance from Dravid, he was indisputably theleading man of Indian Test cricket. But not many hadnoticed because of the ridiculous accent on individual-oriented aggregate statistics. For those statisticalminded, Sachin getting his 100th 100 is more importantthan India winning or losing a match. But for thefollowers of pure cricket, this man was a marvelbecause he was, like the Australian great Steve Dravid’s 180 against Australian inWaugh, a warrior. The Indian team uniform was his 2001 along with Laxmanbattle fatigues. The bat was both his sword and his came easily to the others, and he worked on keepingshield, more often the latter. He was not a his head above water… why he even worked on hiscreator/destroyer in the Tendulkar-Richards mould. He wicket-keeping to stay in the ODI team. But hard workcould never be that. Dravid did not have their has a sort of mortal, doable quality to it. We can all workoutrageous genius. He was more Boycott than hard – if we have the motivation and the belief… thatsBradman but without the selfishness of the English all it takes. But to do it over 17 years requires the kind ofopener. Dravid will be remembered as the man in the genius that not everyone is born with; the genius ofmiddle of Indias great triumvirate.

That Dravid wasIf it meant dropping anchor, down it went and there it nearer the end than ever before was not in doubt, butstayed.
