Much Ado about Nothing, Its just a GAME !!!

The Indian team's challenge in the ICC Cricket World Cup is almost over after their shameful defeat to the Lankans. Surprisingly though, after all the media-generated hoopla, the circus witnessed before the start of the world cup , special prayers held in mosques and temples alike, havans, jagrans, all those jingoistic advertisements, the Indian selectors and some people related to Indian team are saying "Its just a game after all!!".

Well!!,You are right Sir, its just a game. So what if three of the Indian cricket fans died after watching the collapse of our highly rated batting line-ups with one of them committing suicide? So what if millions of young aspiring cricketers and a few more million aam janta who since decades have literally worshipped their cricket team as demi-gods, still cannot come to terms with the utter disbelief and bewilderment of Friday's shocking loss? So what if our great nation called India gets humiliated time and again at world stage each defeat being more convincing and shameful than the previous one? Who cares if defeat has become our habit and a rare win is greeted with hype and pompous adulation? So what if the belief of being submissive and fragile has seeped into our psyche and it seems to be a never ending nightmare?

But the good news is that the Indian public has finally woken up from its stupor. It can no longer be blindly led into believing false gods. They have started asking questions about their so-called greatness because this very so-called greatness has led us to this abysmal low. Excuse us please, but we do not want super humans as players but credible patriotic human beings who play for their national pride not for the money , who spend more time at the nets not in the studios or for their personal business ventures. We want those who value the blue jersey and the cap more than their own life.

Sorry sir!!! we do not want demi-gods in our cricket team because they just want blind worshippers but not their worshippers's expectations. Lets make temples for them not stadiums, and let them bask in their respective glories. Please sack the whole Indian team so that they make make way for young budding Indian cricketers who are proud of their country and play to redeem its lost glory.
