Mina Anand in her own words

New Delhi:

A fanatical cricket lover, I have been following the game for the better part of my half-century! Haven't missed a match for the last 20 years. (Previews, reviews, et al...)

I get up before the crack of dawn to get ready for the pre-match live cricket shows Down Under, and am a very good 'night-watchman' - when it comes to a series in the West Indies!

I have also recently completed a three-year law degree course at the age of 50-53, without giving up on cricket! (I once 'bunked' class, to go and watch my favourite cricketer, Ganguly, play in the Ranji Trophy, 2005 - at the height of his 'exile' - and he obliged with a big hundred!)

Lately, I have written some short (20-20 type) cricket-related articles, which were published in various National Dailies.

Married, with an eighteen-year-old son (studying in the second year, B.Com, at Loyola College, Chennai).

Ex-copywriter - gave it up when my son was born to become a full-time 'cricketing' mother!

Currently working in a Chennai Law Firm.

I am a full-time cricket follower, and a part-time lawyer!
