A short note this new feature we are attempting on, mostly because the pictures will do the talking from now on.
We, and probably you too, are guilty of over objectifying sports persons. We judge their achievements, compare them with peers, idolize or trash them based on pure numbers & statistics.
This feature will try and mirror qualities that cannot be quantified. An abstract projection of the player, if you will. Each time, we will try and find a picture accompanied by a musical piece that best represents the player.
We start with the artist himself. A tribute to our favorite cricketer, who unfortunately is not a part of the ensuing Mela, or mêlée; whichever way you look at it.
