Time magazine's Quote on Sachin


When Sachin Tendulkar travelled to Pakistan to face one

of the finest bowling attacks ever assembled in cricket,

Michael Schumacher was yet to race a F1 car,

Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour de France,

Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion

Argentina team, Pete Sampras had never won a Grand Slam.

When Tendulkar embarked on a glorious career taming

Imran and company, Roger Federer was a name unheard of;

Lionel Messi was in his nappies, Usain Bolt was an unknown

kid in the Jamaican backwaters. The Berlin Wall was still intact,

USSR was one big, big country, Dr Manmohan Singh was yet to

"open" the Nehruvian economy.

It seems while Time was having his toll on every individual on

the face of this planet, he excused one man. Time stands frozen

in front of Sachin Tendulkar.



We have had champions, we have had legends, but we have never

had another Sachin Tendulkar and we never will.

Cufon Font Replacement

9.4.10
I was always looking for an efficient way to use custom fonts in websites, with normal functionality as text. Flash replacement came as a good option but i never felt it good to depend on flash for font replacement. Lately i saw this wonderful library Cufon which uses canvas and VML for the replacement using javascript. Thanks to sorccu
and his http://cufon.shoqolate.com.
