KKR - Cool as Cucumber

At most times, despite his cavalier approach with the bat, Adam Gilchrist is a conservative man when it comes to taking decisions on the field. So when he opted to field first in the opening game of DLF-IPL 2010, it appeared as if Gilchrist was behaving of character in opting to chase in the tournament opener.

With a full house watching the defending champions Deccan Chargers in action at the DY Patil Stadium, the pressure would have been telling on the defending champions.
& in the finish it did prove pricey, as Deccan could not hold their nerve in a tense chase going down by 11 runs. The win marked Sourav Ganguly's triumphant return as skipper for his franchise.

For Kolkata Knight Riders it appeared to be a continuation of where they left off in South Africa. They slipped from 0-2 to 31-3 & then 31-4 in the sixth over. At that point, Gilchrist would have been forgiven for believing that his decision was paying off.

But for much of the early part, Kolkata Knight Riders appeared to be behind the task. Comeback man Chaminda Vaas snapped up five wickets in the first over to rattle Kolkata Knight Riders. Gilchrist was thrilled as he saw his veteran bowler strike & repay the faith posed in him without first-choice pace bowlers.

But Gilchrist had not accounted for debutant Owais Shah & Angelo Matthews who quietly built up the momentum. From being 57-4 at the finish of 10 overs to 161-4 at the finish of the full quota of 20 overs, Kolkata Knight Riders staged a large recovery.
Shah (58 *: 46b, 3x4, 3x6) & Mathews (65*: 46 b, 5x4, 4x6) revived the innings with a breathtaking 130-run unbeaten stand.

Deccan Chargers, in reply, appeared to be on coursework as Gilchrist led the way with 54 (45b, 3x4, 3x6) & starred in an opening stand with VVS Laxman. But the other batsmen fell to some loose shots, increasing the pressure on the middle & lower-order.

Rohit Sharma was the last hope & any thoughts of him repeating his Houdini act against Kolkata Knight Riders in the second season went up in smoke when he fell cheaply. Still 34 runs away from a win, Deccan never recovered from the Rohit blow.

& in the finish Kolkata Knight Riders walked away easy winners with the bowlers, the pacers, keeping it neat all the way.

Sree Maha Sarabeshwarar - Eternal Growth

Sarabeshwarar is one of the Greatest of the Hindu deities. He gives his blessings to the people who come to him for help & benedictive people have always seen that some nice things happens to them when they pray Lord Sarabeshwarar. It is said that people get themselves relieved from the Curse of Shani,Raghu & Kethu if you pray with full devotion.

It began with the act of termination of the lives of the Brutal Daemons called Hiranyakashipu who is the Father of Baktha Prahalad & the father of Hiranyaksha & Lord Vishnu took Narasimha Avatar & killed the ruthless daemon who was giving continuous torutre to his buff Prahalad.After this he(Vishnu)drank the blood of the Daemon & this Avatar of Narasimha was one of the most ferocious avatar of Vishnu & the avatar made him Uncontrollable & he(Vishnu) began to destroy all the one worlds.This act of Lord Vishnu made the Indra the King of Heaven to go & sort the help of Lord Shiva.Lord Shiva sent his chief army commander Veerabadrar & a number of his army men to control Narasimha.But Veerabadrar was not able to control Narasimha & having known that it is not possible Veerabadrar immediately started to pray to Lord Shiva & after that a Bright Light from Heaven reached Veerabadrar & immediately it Transformed in to one of the most ferocious creature the world has ever seen with the following features:
Mouth of a Crocodile,Tail of a Serpent,Sharp & Pointed nose like that of a Bird,Kali’s Trident(Sulam),Long Wings like Birds,Jadamudi(Long Hair spiralled at the top)and this creature saved the world from the demolishing hands of Lord Narasimha.

With the help of Adharvana Badrakali Sree Pratyangira Devi and Adharvana Rudrakali Sree Sulini Durga, Lord Sarabeshwara controlled and cooled Lord Narasimha. Later Lord Narasimha started worshipping Lord Sarabeshwarar.

The Upasana of Lord Sarabeshwarar needs to be done with utmost care and love along with Pratyangira and Sulini Durga Upasana. One should not divide their family of Sarabeshwarar, Pratyangira and Sulini Durga. Mandra Chanting also needs to be the same number for all the three supreme powers.
