My Meet with M.S.Dhoni | 'A Dream Come True' ! Full Story !

Did you read my similiar blog on  Meeting Aamir Khan?

How did I Get Chance ?

If you're my facebook friend, you will be knowing that apart from my Strong Facebook Influence, Friends and networking, i have a definite place for me on facebook for participating in various Cricket contests organised by the official brands.

I've been winning quite often , but this win was a Lifetime win I must say ! Can you believe, 'A Dhoni Meet' !! OMG !! WOW

It went like, couple of months ago, I came to know about a contest, organised by Sonata, where the prize was a big one ! A Dhoni Meet and I had to participate in that as I've been a dead core fan of him

I'd to upload a video, play few games on it and collect as many points as i could, and 11 winners were selected all over from India with the Maximum points and Luckily I was one of them.

I was over joyed when My Name was declared as the 2nd Winner on the list and I was busy telling everyone that I'm meeting MSD :) The moment, i use to meet anyone,anywhere, the first question i used to get was, 'When are you meeting' ?

I'd doubt whether I'l meet of Not

The company made me wait for some days, say about a month and November 16th, was the D Day. That day I recieved a Blackberry (Prize of some other contest) and a call from Sonata saying, 'Dude, You're meeting Dhoni on 27th Nov !

I realised after the call that, I was stuck badly between two Unavoidable situations.

26th Nov - I had a Grand Function at my place with lot of guests from outstation
27th Nov - Dhoni Meet
28th Nov - My External Lab Exam

But, I was sure that this is just 'NOW or Never' for Me and some how I managed in the inbetween date.

In couple of days, i got my Airtickets from company and I was just ALL Set for the Show :)

Selecting a Gift for Dhoni

As I've been a big fan of MSD, i wanted to present something to him, I'd lot of Ideas in Mind, but with the busy fuction and labs, i could not manage to get something good, but Finally was satisfied with a 'Wooden Carved Mysore Dasara' (Something frm mysore, as I was frm Mys)

The Journey Began

I left for Bangalore Airport on 26th Nov Midnight 12:30am  ( Date changed to 27th) in a Hired Cab and it was around 3:30-4 AM when I reched there.
I was excited a bit, as it was my First ever Air Trip. For around 6AM, after collecting the boarding pass, i was inside the Flight for the first time !!

It was 8:30 AM and the Golden Mumbai was Ahead of me. No sooner did i come out of Airport, i had a Innova driver, waiting for me, with the Name Plate. With other winners to come, I left for the destination around 9AM

First time in a 5 Star Hotel

I asked the Driver, 'Which hotel is that' and he said ' TAJ, The 5 Star The TAJ President' ! And i was like 'Fisshh ! Its just Awesome'. We reached the Hotel, and the Sonata guy was waiting for us. He alloted room for us and told us to get fresh and dress up soon and come on for Breakfast.

When i entered the room, 'My God' , it was just Bloody awesome. The Bathroom only was like WOW, The room had a Big window where Whole Mumbai was Visible :)

I got ready fast and went down for the Breakfast. To be honest, i was not interested in breakfast and the excitment to meet MS was just growing and growing. After having the breakfast, couple of guys came to room and explained the whole event, saying what all will happen.

His few lines only made me mad. He said, 'You will be getting Individual pics with him and You'l be playing Cricket with him'. I was just OMG man. I was expecting just, they gonna give me some couple of  minutes and a group photo, but it was just a different story.

Around at 11, one of the guy came and said, 'Common' and the excitment began to rise. We went down stairs and were standing the room.

Seeing Dhoni

I just opened the door, something like, some one is peeping, and Believe me, I Allmost Fell down there, 'It was The Mahendra Singh Dhoni' on the stage man. Fishhh !!

It was just couple of minutes more, where they called up my name, saying 'Akash Jain' and I stepped in the hall, with the Mysore Dasara in My Hand and i went on the stage.

I was just unable to express the Feeling. Dhoni shook the hand with me, The same hand, in which He had holded the Worldcup and hitted the Winning Shot man !!!!

He then gave a 'Team Cap' to me and a Sonata Dhoni Edition watch and i was just Blushing !!

Then, I said 'Mahi, I've brought something for you related to Mysore' and showed the carving. He said 'Wow Its nice , Thanks' and he accepted it. I just gave a snippet of Mysore Dasara there. There i got couple of Individual Clicks more with him.

Playing Cricket with Dhoni

Now, the Anchor finished up calling each one on stage and then, they were up with the Rules for the cricket match, which we were going to play with dhoni.

Dhoni XI : Me + Dhoni (Captain) + 9 Other winners
Sonata XI : 11 People, sonata Employees

Indoor Cricket with 6 Overs.
Underarm Bowling, No boundries, just Running.
Wide/No Balls : 2 Runs

Our captain Mahi, was in the Nets for the Toss and the other fellow won that and opted for Bowling.

We, Dhoni XI, came into right side of the nets, and Dhoni had to write the name of the Players. He saw me, I said 'Akash' and he wrote 'AAKASH' on the Sheet :)

He asked "who all are bowlers and who bat well ?", Allmost all, including Me said, 'ALLROUNDER ( Atleast m Allrounder acc to my blog name :P ) and he said, 'Idhar hi Saare ALLROUNDERS Bhare hai, Indian team mein Kami hai unki' :D

Sitting Near Dhoni

I'd opted to bat at 6th Position, Infact, who the hell wanted to bat ? I just wanted to sit near him. Couple of guys were sitting next to me, and next to him was MSD. Those guys stood up and went for batting, and i was just Next to Mahi.

I was so damn excited that i could not talk much, but in between I'd managed to talk with him. I said 'Mahi, Agar jeet gaye to Party Deni Padegi' and he said 'Haa denge na'. I talked about Mysore zoo, where he adopted a tiger :D

Sometimes, when it used to be No ball, i used to say 'Mahi, No ball tha' and he used to speak same on the Mic which he had on his Shirt.

Inbetween, It reminded , I'd to take an autograph of Mahi on My Tshirt (Its an Tshirt with 'Dhoni' written on it. Thanks to Shree Kiran, who'd purchased this for me )
(See the pic, The Autograph is visible )

At the end of 6 Overs, i thought it was just 5 Overs, and i said 'Mahi, sirf 5 overs hue hai', and he said that on Mic, 'How many overs have been done?' and then he explained me, it was 6

.During the batting, the Batsman was hitting ball very hard and so i said, "Mahi, Umpire ko bhi Helmet pehnana Padega' and he said 'laughingly, 'Umpire ka Sar phot dega wo' :D

The 6 Overs were Over and i did not get batting, as the 5 guys only batted. Our team had managed to score 47 in 6 Overs
Mahi called all of us, some sort of Team Meeting, and said 'Wide-No Ball mat daalna, Araam se Jeet Jayenge'
Now, It was the Bowling, and Mahi said, 'Jisko Batting nahi Mili hai,  wo Bowling karna'. I was in Nets, and i got the 3rd over

I Picked two wickets on first two balls. The third ball, I'd RUN Outed the guy, but still dont understand, why the hell, Umpire gave it as Not Out.

Now, Mahi bowled the 5th Over and he too picked two wickets on first two balls.

Winning the Match

The Six overs were over and We'd won ! We all moved into Nets and All the audience were clapping, and it really felt Great !

We Moved to stage, where Mahi presented an Individual Trophy to me and everyone, and i got an Individual Pic there too !

Then the whole Group was called up and we celebreated there with Mahi !

Champaegne was brought, He opened it up and was passed to the losing team.

Meeting Sakshi too

Now, I was standing down the stairs, when Mahi was talkin somethin bout Leadership to the sonata people. In the corner, I saw 'Sakshi Singh Dhoni' sitting and at first sight, i could not believe, it was her.

I went to her and said, 'Hello 'Bhabhi', I need an Autograph for my sister" !
She said "I dont give Autographs ! Take Photograph, if you want" !! And there came a Click !!

And finally, we stood there, talked to organisers, event managers, they thanked us and we did the same !

Then we were told to have lunch, but with this whole story in mind, seriously there was no need of eating :D Stomach was full already, but still went to lobby, there were so many items, that just tasting each, whole Lunch was over !!

Another Co Incidence :

After that, I was still roaming in Lobby after the Lunch, expecting to see Mahi another time as he was there in Hotel only ! After half an hour, i thought, it was waste to wait and just pressed the button for Lift

To my surprise, the Lift door opened, and it was 'Mahi' with his Bouncers inside !! I was just Shocked :D :D. He went for the Ad shoot which he had then, the Body guard was standing at the door.

I just  went to him and said "Boss, I need a pic with You" and he said "Common !" and There a CLICK !!

After this, I went to Room, really I was feeling like, "Let's Dance" ! I celebreated in the room with others, clicked few pics there and then it was time for me, as I had return Flight too.

Thanks to Car Driver :

And Finally Left the Hotel. But Thanks to the Car Driver, as while going to Airport, he showed us many Mumbai Places :

Basera (Rekha's House)

Mannat, SRK's House

Beach infront of SRK's House :

Salman's House (ROXAN)

Bandra Werli Link

And Finally, reched Airport and then left for Mysore again. :)

'27th November", The Best day of my Life Ever :)

A Big thanks to Team Dhoni XI who made the day 'Just Awesome' :)
