The Autobiography of a “Cricket Bat”

by Anjana Mazumdar

Hi! Mr. Bat, why are you crying? Were you also thrown away by your master?” Mr. Tinman asked me. I burst into tears and narrated him my sad story “Ah! Those were my golden days of childhood.

Kapil was very sad to see my pathetic condition. With a heavy heart, he gave me to a young boy, Sachin who loved cricket. He was very fond of me and was always dreamt to wear the shoes of Kapil. Rather he aspired to play with the Kapil’s bat, so for him, it was a dream fulfilled. He loved me and thought it was a blessing from Kapil. Infact he was very proud of me. One day when he was practicing in the field my old body
