A Chance Meeting with Cricketer Mithali Raj

Dussehra pooja holidays are always fun filled, especially wearing traditional ethnic clothes, eating a lot of savouries, going to temples, arranging Dussehra dolls at my home with friends and relatives visiting to see the them.

Every year we adorn our house with Dussehra Dolls (Dussehra Gombe).

We buy new dolls every year. We perform Dussehra pooja from the seventh day to the tenth day(Saptami to Dashami). My mom arranges a different theme every year and I assist her. We light an oil lamp which is lit continuously for four days.

I love going with my dad to his office for Dussehra pooja every year. This year too, I went to my dad's office and guess what?

I had this chance meeting with India Women's Cricket Team's Captain Mithali Raj, when my dad was taking me around his office introducing me to his colleagues. I was on cloud nine when I met her. I immediately requested her for an autograph, which she readly gave with a friendly smile. I was so happy after meeting her. I am even more happy because my autograph collection has a lady cricketer's autograph.

I enjoyed my vacation and it was special having met this famous Sportswomen, a Hyderabadi! 

Now I'm waiting to get back to school and meet my friends.
