A Lovable Gilly

The most lovable part of the Indo-Aus series was seeing the face of this man on paper. Gilly, We thank you a lot from our heart for being concerned about our country's children. We love you.

Hi Kannapan,
That's a neat blog you have.
Adam Gilchrist seems to have realised the simple truth: Love thy neighbour. No wonder, he gives his all to the game. He is also a walker. Wonderful.

Hi Karthik
Thanks for the compliment on the blog.
Yeah I agree with what you said abt Gilly.
Throughout this tour he did not spend much of his time on endorsements unlike Warne or Brett Lee. And that was a conscious decision from his part. Moreover Harbhajan who has lashed out at Ponting and Mark Waugh, speaks of the respect he has for a few Aussies like Gilly in this Deccan Herald Article.

And Walker.. Yeah Just now I read that Nirmal Shekar article. Good.

I wonder why I don't hear much about our cricketers doing anything for poor children. Only these Australian blokes seem to be up to good or is it that only they manage to hog the media?

Hi Manjusha
Some of our cricketers are also involved. You might not have missed this article

Its just that when somebody from some other country cares for us, we are a little more curious. And I dont think all Aussie blokes or blokes from any other nation for that matter are that good. Its only Steve Waugh, then Gilly and to some extent Matt Hayden who really loves India and her spirituality.
From my perspective that is...
