Name:Amit Behere
Message:Dear Sir, Happy Birthday ! Wishing you a very long and healthy life and a long and healthy career as the Indian coach. PS: Before you read on (the next few paras are devoted to singing your praises :) I was wondering if it would be possible for the Indian cricket board with all their money to hire Jonty Rhodes as a fielding coach. I think it would do our team a world of good. I hope you read this suggestion and give it some thought.) For a long time, before you started your coaching stint with India, Indian fans were a frustrated lot, supporting a team with immense talent and questionable fighting spirit is not easy. But since your arrival the team has gotten an edge, a mental strength never seen before atleast in Indian cricket. You transformed a team that used to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory into a team that won victories in difficult situations ! Hats off to you. I am sure a lot of credit also goes to the captain, the management and also the players themselves but thanks for being the catalyst. Now I can really belive that when India loses, I can still be proud because they would have done their best and beyond to avoid it. Regards Amit

Lastly you are also a perfect gentleman, and your contributions to World Cricket as a player have also stood out, may I add.

Infact I am doing my post graduation in Professional Accountancy from UNITEC Institute of Technology in Auckland, New Zealand. I keep an avid interest in cricket and a die hard fan of the game as i myself used to wear the batting gloves up in the order till my college days in India. During all these times I have always updated myself regarding all the developments of Indian cricket and I as well as the entire India is indebted to you for turning the fortunes, without you it wouldn't have been possible. I say it from my heart. Along with guiding the Indian cricket team to its path of excellenece I have always tried to instill the art of being a champion following you. I'm thoroughly enjoying myself in your country and would surely like to go down to the city of your origin. Having a hard time keeping myself warm in the Auckland winters. Wishing you all the best for all your future endevours with the Indian cricket team and I am surely you will hop, skip and jump for another 50 yrs to complete your century. Sir JOHN , please never leave Indian cricket. Always be involved with it. I still keep the vivid memories of seeing you from the close quarters when you once came to shop in a Reebok outlet in Calcutta with your wife maybe, a day before the one day game against England in Eden Gardens where Marcus was threatning to take the game away from the Indians with a century. I have even see you very closely while the test match was going on in the Eden Gardens against West Indies sitting in the Club House. All those times are very special to me as YOU ARE MY FAVOURITE SPORTING ICON AND I SIMPLY ADORE YOUR OVER WHELMING PERSONALITY. Take care Sir JOHN, Keep in touch. SHOWNAK BASU

Message:Dear John, I WISH U A VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS BIRTHDAY. You've done wonders to this Indian team. Gone are the dayz when India was considered an average team in world cricket. U've made this team a world beating unit. The world cup final may not have gone as desired, but such matches as that one r very rare n one really has to have a bad day for that. On ur Birthday, I express my deepest wishes to you and hope u continue ur association with Indian cricket in future, if not as a coach then in some other way. Happy Birthday again! Love Sam
