On Pujara,Cheteshwar (Poem)

An easier calling,a simpler name,

A shorter hike to taller peaks,

Some flashes of  moody arrogance,

Moments of madness off the pitch,

More Teflon, lesser concrete somewhat,

Less Wally, more starry could have been,

Battalions of such pretenders do exist,

The sheet anchor is always on the beat !         (8)

Patiently he blocks, makes ’em bowl after bowl ,

Painfully sweats, while he digs in his souls,

Blunts bowlers’ fusillade, keeps temptations at bay,

The business is grinding, only sometimes makes hay,  (runs)

Obdurate pride in this tenacious craft,

Steadfast commitment to his team’s cause,

If the anchor is laid, ship shan’t float away,

Till the Wall stands, shall keep marauders at bay.      (16)

  1. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had
    issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
