The event was scheduled to begin at 5.30 pm. But by the time it was 3 pm, thousands thronged Netaji Indoor Stadium to click selfies and get autographs signed by their dream footballer — Iranian star Majid Bishkar. The Magician of Maidan obliged his fans with a charming smile as soon as he arrived. “When I was invited to be a part of the 100-year celebrations of East Bengal Club, I was not sure if people would recognise me as I used to play 32 years back in this city. I was stunned when I saw a huge crowd of East Bengal supporters at the airport shouting my name; all the memories came rushing back to my mind,” said the player. All praise for the city, Majid said, “Kolkata is a warm city and so are its people. But everything in Kolkata has changed — there are so many new buildings, flyovers and so on. I visited Park Street, Chowringhee Road and the Maidan area. What has not changed is the love for the colour red and yellow and passion for football. The love showered by the supporters of East Bengal is something to cherish. I visited the tents in Maidan and the sight, sound and smell gave me a sense of déjà vu. It was a beautiful feeling as I was reliving my glorious days with East Bengal.”

Did he get to taste Bengali food on his trip to the city, we asked. “Oh yes! Mustard fish, paneer, rice, sweets and vegetable curries. I want to do some shopping from here but my friends are not leaving me and I have no time. But I would love to buy sweets from here,” said the player with a smile. Before he got busy with the event, Majid added, “I wish all the best to East Bengal. With new coaches, new enthusiastic players, new foreign players, I am sure they will make us more proud and bring more trophies.” Jamshid Nassiri, a friend and a colleague of Majid, said, “I am meeting my friend after 32 years and we got busy discussing our old days — the many memories we made together.”
