Ode To Rahul Dravid



In this land of diverse creed,
where cricket makes us a part of a single breed.
Every match is just on our nerve as any other,
a joyous win is celebrated pompously together.
Cricket is a religion of this land,
the stadium is energized with cheering hands.
Every new cricketer plays to his glory and leaves a mark,
fighting each moments of shine and dark.

Amongst them, is one who is my most favourite,
his dazzling performance brightened every cricketer's spirit.
He is named as "THE WALL" in the Indian Cricket Team,
he is a role model for young boys to dream.
The man who set new records for the game,
My Superhero, Rahul Dravid is his name!!!

  5. Hi Elvira lobo,

    It’s a beautiful poem. Loved it.

    I am Sudarshan, a panelist of “Behind The Wall”(BTW), a project being done by Dravid fans. It’s a book on Dravid from fan’s perspective. It will contain fans feelings n opinions put through articles, poems and sketches. It will also have some guest interviews from some of the stalwarts in the cricketing world. I liked your poem and it fits perfectly into the theme of our book. With your permission we would like to include it in the book.

    (We took permission from the man himself to write the book.)

    Please send your article to rktwall@gmail.com (official id ). To know more about the project or for further communication, you can contact me through sudarshan.annadanam@gmail.com (or through our official id).

    Thank you,
    Awaiting your reply,
