sudhir kumar gautam

The Word Crazy Itself gets Crazy to check the loyality of his towards Indian Cricket..
His Religion Is Cricket, His God Is SACHIN ramesh TENDULKAR. He Is The DIE HARD FAN of SACHIN and to the Indian Cricket Team.
Here is a few Things About Him:
Chaudhary used to work in a milk company in Muzaffarpur and later passed an examination to become a teacher. But the Cricketing Instinct In him, made him to quit his job.
I now survive on public support“- Chaudhary.
He has the Indian flag painted on his body. With his entire torso, face and his head painted in the colours of the national flag with the words ‘Sachin Tendulkar‘ boldly written over, the 26-year-old from Bihar could be seen cheering for the Indian team by tirelessly waving a huge Indian tricolour.
I have dedicated my entire life to cricket, and there is no looking back at my decision“-Chaudhary.
Sachin has promised me that he would provide me with the tickets of all international matches played in our country, and he is living up to his words“-Chaudhary.
He sends 1,000 litchis to Sachin Tendulkar every year in appreciation for the match tickets that the batting maestro gives him. He once threatened self-immolation if he was not given lifelong guarantee of tickets to watch all India matches. As a gesture of gratitude, Chaudhary travels down to Tendulkar’s Mumbai home to present him with litchis every summer.
I have been presenting him 1,000 litchis every year since 2004. By the time I return to India after this Test match(During Indo-Bangla series), the litchis would be ripe and I will take another 1,000 for him soon“-Chaudhry.
I have also presented litchis to Virender Sehwag and Sourav Ganguly. And I have promised Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh that I would also send them the litchis this year“-Chaudhary.
He travelled from his native Muzaffarpur district, Bihar to Bangladesh on his bicycle for the Indo-Bangla series.
While Tendulkar has assured him of tickets in the matches he plays, Chaudhary is worried of the time after Tendulkar retires.
Last year Sachin did not play a match and he missed that because only sachin gives him the tickets. After that he met the cricket board president Pawar(now former) thrice in Delhi and requested him to guarantee him one ticket per match for entire lifetime.
I don’t want any money, i jus need a ticket to watch my Religion & Passion” he said.
Chaudhary met Pawar thrice in six days in April last year, but he failed out to get a guarantee from him.
After he ignored him twice, he took an appointment in the name of another person, & covered his painted body with a ‘chadar’ (sheet) and removed it in front of him“-Chaudhary.

He said that he will immolate himself in protest if he isn’t provided with the match ticket. Pawar persuaded him not to do so, but didn’t give him any guarantee either.
Chaudhary is a bachelor and said he has decided to remain single entire life.
I don’t want to ruin a girl’s life by marrying her because I am always travelling to watch matches. It’s because even after Sachin retires, I will continue to follow and encourage the Indian team“-Chaudhary.
He is With Strong Belief Over Sachin and On The Indian Team. He Enjoys Indian Victory, he supports when India was at a disaster..
Sudhir Kumar Chaudhary Is A Pure Hearted Well Wisher For The Master Blaster & for the Indian Team.

There are fans, and then there is Sudhir Kumar Gautam who actually gets free passes for all his matches from Sachin Tendulkar himself.
Sudhir Kumar Gautam with Sachin
The 30-year-old fan from Bihar, who has been following Sachin to nearly all his matches for the past eight years, travelled to Bangalore (without a ticket!) for Saturday’s Mumbai Indians versus Royal Challengers at Chinnaswamy Stadium.
He’ll be easy to spot: A thin, wiry man with a haircut that’s shaped like the map of India in tricolour, waving the national flag vigorously.

CRAZY RIDEMost of the time, Gautam follows Sachin on a cycle. He told Bangalore Mirror, “On November 1, 2003, India took on Australia in Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. I cycled to Mumbai from Muzaffarpur in Bihar and even met him at his house before the match. He treated me very nicely.”

Twice, the Sachin fanatic actually ran into the grounds. “On November 6, 2003, India was playing New Zealand in Cuttack and I jumped onto the field to meet my Sachin. Then again, on November 15, the same year, Sachin hit a century against New Zealand. I ran and fell at Sachin’s feet. That’s when the security came running to take me away but Sachin told them not to hit me,” he reminisced.

That did it. Since then, Gautam has been getting passes for almost all Tendulkar matches from the Master Blaster himself.

SAYING NO TO SACHINHowever, the constant travel with no source of income is beginning to take its toll. “I have been following Mumbai Indians since IPL started. I couldn’t do so in 2009 when the venue shifted to South Africa. This year, I’ve exhausted my money and though I want to watch the match between Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians in Kolkata, I don’t think I have enough time or money to follow the team,” said Gautam.

Though Sachin offered him money, he did not take it. He has no particular reason for refusing except for the fact that he has great respect for the star. “Sachin has been very kind to me. When I went to his house, I even rode with him in his BMW,” he said.

“Money or no money, I will  reach Mumbai on April 24. After all, it’s Sachin’s birthday,” he said.

TO HELL WITH THE JOBGautam is so obsessed that he even quit his job for Sachin. “In 2006, India was to play Pakistan. I wanted to go and watch Sachin play. I was working with Sudha Diary in Muzaffarpur but they refused to foot my travel expenses and wouldn’t give me leave either. So I just left the job,” said the defiant fan who has a wikipedia site named after him.

He then decided to cross the border on his famed bicycle. “I started preparing for the journey in January since I knew it would take time to get my visa, passport and other things in place. On February 12, I crossed the border and stayed at Pakistan Chacha’s house. On February 13, when India played Pakistan, I saw Sachin playing.”

  1. I am deeply touched.This is a classic revelation of respect and belief.Sachin is an icon who sits on the peak of Everest,but so are many people in their various fields,but never I have heard of a story like this.Sachin is truly blessed and I think even after he retires,he should make tickets available to this devotee of him and cricket.I am from Guyana the land of my idol Shivnarine Chanderpaul.
