In what way does India winning the World Cup affect me ?
I realised that it does not in anyway make even an iota of difference.
The auto-wallah is not going to offer me a free ride to office on Tuesday.
The caterers are not going to offer me free meals.
Bus Rides are not going to be free.
Nor is my company going to pay me an extra day's salary.
And yet the whole nation goes beserk when they hear India has won the world cup. I can only laugh at them. Seriously... :)
Dhoni's world cup is not going to solve the problems of the nation.
Nor will it solve the problem of other nations.
For those who wish to tell me,
"Just shut the fuck up..." or
"WTF is your problem ?" or
"Why are you getting so pissed off ?"
You may very well shove your words up your arse. I really don't give them a damn.
Let me be very honest here. I haven't watched a single match in this world cup. Not one. Not even "THE MATCH" of the decade. Mahabharata of All Matches - Ramayana to get back Sita epithets are totally lame for a country that is full of losers and full of work-shirkers. 7 hours !!! Almost one working day.
End benefits of this match ?
People bursting crackers - at an untimely hour - especially when the crackers are purposely exorbitantly priced - reason quoted being - "off-season" crackers.
My twitter and FB Feed getting Raped. Yes, you read that right. Its getting raped mercilessly right now, even as I am typing out this post.
Literally Endless revenue for BCCI and ICC. Plenty of money now.
Cricketers will now get "Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna" apart from "NarsimhaRao Khel Puraskar" - "Khel-Sadbhavana Puraskar" etc.
Some of them will get divorced/break-up with their current girlfriends and hook up with new ones.
All of them will get awesome flats - worth crores - in prime locations. With plenty of cash rewards.
What do you get ?
The satisfaction that Sachin finally got "his" World Cup ?
Pride as Dhoni finally played a captain's knock ?
Happiness as Yuvraj proved his critics wrong ?
Vindicated as Ashwin's wizardry has been brought to fore ?
Don't come up with Patriotism and bullshit. Try some other tack. This one's damn bloody and stale and has begun to stink.
Yeah and what else does this do ?
Spark off endless debates on Forums/FB/Twitter on
When Sachin should announce his retirement.
On how Sachin has never performed when it really counted.
On how Dhoni has spanked all his critics.
On how Dhoni's innovative captaincy methods have revived Indian Cricket.
And of course, Don't be surprised if some jackass from Harvard Business Review comes down to publish a paper on the Winning Model of the Indian Cricket Team - For World Cup 2011.
Ithellam oru pozhappa ? Thooo... !!!
