Catching Up With Shane Warne

Imagine how does it feel to catch up with your favorite cricketer. Only one emotion – you are on top of the world :)  I caught up with the spin maestro Shane Warne at the Bangalore airport. Shane Warne was in town for the IPL inauguration ceremony.

My Spicjet flight had reached bangalore on time. However there was some delay in baggage collection as there was tech. issue with the conveyor belt. The wait was frustrating for all the passengers on board. As it turned out, the wait was worthwile.
