Happy 40th Birthday, dear Dada

In a few minutes from the time this post gets published, we shall celebrate the 40th birthday of Sourav Ganguly.
The change agent of Team India.

Leaving aside customary praises that we have given him in plenty, I searched the net for quotes on him. 
I suggest we re-read the words that once came out of a still-young-but-under-fire off spinner from Punjab about the captain that made him:

"Ever since Sourav became the captain, I do not feel like a youngster in the team any more. Everybody is treated equally and Sourav himself is extremely approachable and a pillar of strength. Sourav stood by me when I was struggling. I owe a great deal to him for standing by me at the most important time. I can’t express my gratitude to him in words." – Harbhajan Singh

Happy birthday, dear Dada. and thanks a zillion for being there.
