पराजय का चटका

निराशा की धूल खाते हुए हम सब। लड़ेगा तो हारेगा ... जाए बाढ में पैप्सी और उनके नारे! जाएँ चुल्लु भर पानी में जा डूब मरें सब! बस उस 1983 की तसवीर के सपने देखते रह जाएँ, जैसे कोई दूर फासले में धीरे धीरे गायब होता हुआ दृश्य।

आ जा वापस, टीम इंडिया, पैरों के बीच दुम लेकर! नाक कट गई दुनिया के सामने। बाकी कुछ बोलना फिज़ूल।

Okay, this isn't swearing about the Cricket World Cup is it? LOL

Not swearing, no ... just being a bit melodramatic ... :)

Kya baat hai!

In the end that's all we're left with. I sort of expected this, perhaps that's why my emotional investment in this WC has been sort of low. Though (rather shamefacedly) I will admit to having one big argument with my b-i-l - cricket vs. baseball, (he's a huge Sox fan, I'm still looking at cricket like a long lost love), which of course transformed into patriotism and roots and all that.

Arrey -- part of the fun is getting overly melodramatic and all ... :)

Shouldn't be an either/or between cricket and baseball. I'm even more of a rabid Gamecock fan! Wait till the Fall rolls around and wath! :)

Oh BTW, have been meaning to ask - what's the word on the street regarding Woolmer? Do ppl think it was Inzy?

g something is wrong with the text in this post, there are a lot of squiggly lines where the text should be

@ coray: your mind has obviously not evolved to the point of giving meaning to those squigly lines.

@ pixel chick: you know, I've really tried to avoid all the gossip surrounding Woolmer's death. It's distasteful! There's nothing that irritates me more these days than the 24/7 news channels here which are just full of so much noise! Ugh. (I'm not sure why, but I end up watching TV here in India. Way too much. When I hardly ever in the US.)
