MY GULI DANDA…

MY GULI DANDA…

RCB Diva Taruni Pandey from Gangtok just sent us this beautiful poem about a cricketers life. Taruni, welcome to the RCB Family!

MY GULI DANDA…

Thousand voices enchanting my name..

Thousand clicks flashing on my face..

I breathe tight or I take a deep sigh..

My guli-danda is now more than a game!!



A hero I am..a zero I am..

Next to God I am..a lucky fraud I am..

My commercial value is inked on my head..

The better I play, the better it gets..

The “Britannia” and “Hero” logos on my bat..

My guli-danda is something more than that!!




A dance move I make.. a brilliant catch I take..

All make the morning headlines like an icing on the cake..

My mother’s worried I shall marry a heroine..

A fragile “heart” I have ..that often aches and breaks..

The pressure of the committee, competition from the team-mates..

A second family I have made.. A life that even God won’t hate..




Whenever I play a duck, Whenever my bowling sucks..

I have to give answers until my tongue is tucked..

Media, ex-players, fans, neighbors and friends..

Their unending advises overtake those from the captain..

I’m the centre topic of all those news-hour debates..

All my IPL earnings are deemed to be set as targets!!



I was a budding youngster who replaced a senior..

Someday I’ll have to transfer all gear to a junior..

The retirements I have seen.. the debutants that came..

Night parties of the bachelor kings that were later tamed..

It was passion before when I stood in the field..

But now the inner calmness has taken over the brain..

I have led a special life.. although there’s more the future holds..

Waiting for the surprise my gulli-danda will secretly unfold!!

- Taruni Pandey
