Atal Moment For Dhoni!

Had Dhoni won India the World Cup, he would rightly be a prime candidate to receive Bharat Ratna. It is sad that many today are gunning for his head for WC Semis capitulation. The affable young man from Ranchi have had to shun modesty to scotch rumour of his exit His comment citing age being on his side is a sign of his belief in his abilities and testimony to both his confidence and contribution to the game in India. There is striking similarity between what Dhoni said yesterday and what one of the best ever Prime Ministers of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee said years ago. Vajpayee made the famous comment that he was neither tired nor retired to squash rumours of mid-term resignation. There has been inordinately delay in honouring Vajpayee and there is undue haste in writing Dhoni’s obituary!
