In Kolkata with Sudhir

April 5, 2011

We flew in to Kolkata today to meet up with Sudhir (uberfan) who got here after the World Cup win by train from Mumbai (a 36 hr journey for him). He went to the home of Sourav Ganguly, the great former India captain who had graciously let Sudhir park his borrowed bicycle for the duration of the tournament. As Sudhir was picking up his bike, Sourav appeared from inside his house and we had the great fortune to meet him. 

Meeting an idol of mine and a great cricketing legend (the 2nd best One-day cricket batsman to ever play the game after Sachin) was amazing. He was warm and friendly and we talked for a bit. He was very supportive of Sudhir and it was nice to see Sudhir's joy. After that Sudhir rode off on his bike lugging his massive bag in which he carries all his belongings. At one point I had to hold his bike for him while he took off his mic and handed it back to our sound guy. And of course I dropped the bike unable to balance the weight of his massive bag and it went crashing to the ground. Embarrassing! But it also made me realize how tough it must be for him to ride across the country lugging that super-heavy bag. 

In a day we will head to his home town in Bihar 700 kms away from here as he bikes the entire way. We expect a big welcome committee of his fellow villagers to greet him when he gets home. It will be interesting to see how his own family greets him given how they have been generally unsupportive of him for a long time now.
