Photographer's Note

Mind and body,heart and soul,
I've the power.Im on a roll.

Its cricket in the blood of every youngster in India now.Gods like Sachin are hard to fade, but then new ones like Dhoni and Yuvi are cemented in their attitude.

It was the day after India won the Twenty20 World Cup and guys were so ecstatic in this small sleepy vilage about the win that they were celebrating nonstop.

Pure joy, pure ecstacy and pure belief... the birth of a new religion?

PS: The temple in the background is a famous 'shakti peeth', Bhattarika. Please dont think that a temple is built for the Gods of Cricket here.As i was chatting with the boys, they were just talking about the game, match statistics, heroics of batsmen etc. Even they have named some of them after the cricket stars, and celebrating the win.
