Similar feelings have gripped me when several remarkable things have happened in life, sports or otherwise. Vishy Anand's becoming the World Chess Champion, Pete Sampras's fourteenth Grand Slam Title, several of Sachin Tendulkar's triumphant innings ... All victories and defeats are so enjoyable.
It's exactly like what Poet Bokar said:
भाग्य केवढे, आपुली चाले यातूनच यात्रा!(We are so fortunate to do carry out the journey of life amidst such marvels).
