With the burden of selecting the new Indian cricket coach over and done with, Ravi Shastri-Sourav Ganguly spat adding the much-needed controversy to liven up the proceedings, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar jetted off to a holiday – only to discover a ‘natural’ India map, in the lap of luxury somewhere. The 43 year old sportsmen posted the selfie on his Twitter handle with this caption: “During my drive on the island inlet of water appeared like the map of India. Saare jahan se achcha Hindustan hamara!” Surely, proof enough that Sachin’s eyes as well as ‘vision’ are as sharp as they were when he was flaying the best bowlers in the world over the ropes time and again. Sachin as Team India coach, anyone? And what a beautiful selfie it is!

From space, Indian astronaut Rakesh Sharma most famously described India in similar fashion to then-PM Indira Gandhi back in 1984. Here we take a look at the chain reaction set off by the iconic former cricketer’s Twitter post:
