Kiddie Talkies – Explore this World through my Eyes

My Thoughts

When I met my Dream Girl PV Sindhu

Yesterday was the most exciting day for me. You know why? I got to see PV Sindhu akka’s final match. I just couldn’t get over the way she played the match. She is the fastest shuttler I can say. I kept replaying her back hand in my mind all through the evening. But later in the evening when the test cricket match started between India and the West Indies, I got involved in that match.

As it was getting late, my mom dragged me to bed and we talked so much about PV Sindhu akka so much even before falling asleep. Then you know what happened?

I met my dream girl PV Sindhu akka. She came to our shuttle court and I was playing there with my coach all alone. None of my teammates were there at that time. Suddenly, we see Sindhu akka walking into the court. I was so surprised and stood still. She just said HI to Vallabh sir and came to me directly. When she gave her hand, I was bit hesitant to shake my hand, as I felt that she looks just like the angel my mom describes in the stories.

Then we spoke a little and she asked me to play with her, and she taught so many moves especially on the footwork part. She showed me how to move across the court faster. I felt like it was a Cheetah, which was moving in the court and not Sindhu akka, as she was faster than a Cheetah on the court.

I asked Sindhu akka how she learnt to play so well and didn’t she feel scared to go to Switzerland all alone to play the game without her parents. She told me that she is used to going alone and that now she is grown up, she should go alone. Sindhu akka told me that I would also become a brave boy after I grow up little more.

She told me that her coach, Gopichand sir has trained her on all the techniques. Can you believe that her coach asks her to come to the court by 4:30 AM every day. Whenever I get up early morning to catch a flight to Vizag, I feel that its midnight only as it would be pitch dark outside. So Akka must be really working hard to get up so early isn’t it?

Can you believe that she won’t use her mobile phone or watch TV? Then I asked her how can she find her relaxation if she doesn’t watch all that. She told me that she would only read books (especially those of sportspersons) and relax with music. Looks like, her coach and parents are very strict that way. Thank god, my coach nor my parents are that way. But I think, if I have to become like her, I also should follow her footsteps, and work hard. What say, folks? Mommy says, without hard work, we cannot reach our goals.

Sindhu akka told me that she would sleep early in the night and would eat only healthy food. But I like Pizza’s so how can I stop them. Akka told me to eat them only once a month. (I think, Sindhu akka met my mom before meeting me, as she is talking exactly like my mom).

I told her that I am eager to play the matches just like her and when will I grow up as big as her? She told me to have patience and play/learn from my coach regularly. She gave me the same tips as Bumrah. “Eat well, Practice hard and Sleep good“. I think this is what all the sportspersons tell. Even my Satish anna says the same. So, Dancers and sports persons behave exactly the same. What say, friends?

Post our match, I took Sindhu akka around my area and asked her to come home. I was showing my garden and the birds nesting there, suddenly I heard “Kausalya Supraja Rama”. I started wondering who is playing Venkateswara Suprabatham in the evening and looked around.

Can you imagine? I am in my bedroom on my bed, and my mobile is singing the Venkateswara Suprabatham as its Monday morning. So then only I realized that I met my dream girl PV Sindhu akka in my dream only. I felt so sad about not meeting her in reality. I really wish that a day would come when I get to meet her and talk to her. Please pray for me that I get a chance to meet PV Sindhu akka at least once in the near future.

Till then, I think, I should only talk to her poster given by my coach Vallabh Sir. My mom pasted that poster in my toy room. Do you want to see that one?
