Go India Go

Optimism pays.. In this case every one's optimism payed.. India won yesterday's world cup semi final match against Pakistan! An easy match does not make it a real game. The fun comes with the hardship to set the target, to chase the score, to stop the ball from skipping the boundary, to witness missing of a critical catch or two! The real game is not an easy win.

To me it doesn't really matters who wins at the end. I prefer sitting through moments of match rich in adrenalin, as it tosses and turns through the day. Easy win does not make it a match. It was not an easy win for India, neither was it an easy loss for Pakistan. Both the contenders were right into the match, pushing through every moment of a jam packed stadium.

I actually watched the entire match after ages. I remember there was a time when I was crazyyyyy about cricket. And man of the match for every match was my crush till the next match :| ;| :) ;) :D ;D ;p

Back then India had (as if I am reading out my diary to grandchildren) a strong bating line up, and the only reason India use to loose was due to loopholes in the fielding and bowling front. Pakistan had always had a strong bowling line up.

I remember Afridi use to be the opening batsman for Pakistan and he was Pakistan's Sehwag. The one who would pick up as many runs and hit fearless shots.
This time, I observed and laud that India has a reliable batting lineup and fielding has commendably improved. Pakistan on the other hand has poor fielding and had succumbed to the task of chasing India's score of 260. Indians managed a score for which Pakistan had to maintain a run rate of approximately 5.
As I reached home, I was glued to the TV set. India played beautifully, please guys lets not get into analysis of whatever... I pity people who say that had this been the case, India would have never won...

The ground reality came at 11 pm, India casted a declarative win and after that I participated in the local street side celebration. Almost everyone was  on street, which must have been the case across India. As I was standing on the terrace, I relished a visual and audatory wassail of fireworks and snorting for the team India.

It was like the Diwali time...
All the fancy fireworks were out and I observed street dogs running around in confusion :/

A standing ovation for the team!

Go India Go
Go boys, lift the cup
Roar loud
Bring bangs for a buff
Lets cheer and smile
India will win this time
Go India Go

Author's Note: I have a strong intuition that India will win, otherwise I wouldn't have written this post :) I am hopeful that India will grab the world cup..  

PS: Waiting for the final on Saturday 2nd April 2011~~
PPS: Wait for another post after the final!

India Pakistan head on!

Before the match.. And a few observations:

Today India and Pakistan will take on each other at World Cup 2011 Semifinal match in Mohali. Whoever wins will secure a place in the finals scheduled for 2nd March 2011. Srilanka won yesterday against New Zealand, and is a formal contender at the finals..

I am positive that India will win~~ India has a track record of beating Pakistan during world cups.. This will be no exception. India is a strong team as it has beated Australia at the quarter finals.

Sport brings foes together.. Dr Manmohan Singh and Pakistan’s counterpart will be seated in the same pavilion.

Locals in Mohali have been giving warm hospitality to guests coming from across the border.

My office pays solidarity to the Indian cricket team, most of us are in Blue and Orange attire. And those who missed are liable to penalty. And we have an evening party.

News all over exclaiming, Indian Muslims pray for Indian team.. Big deal.. huh. Do we actually need to reiterate that those who are Indians will side by their own country. Every Indian is praying for Team India.

This is the time when I realized that I would love to watch sport in stadium.. Anyone with the tickets.? I have been following radio channels to win ticket for the upcoming IPL 4.

Common (Cyber) Sence

Any deal based on an outright lie will come back to haunt you...... and a complete narration a bit of research on the ongoing unrest in the middle east. I have to keep myself updated with the current affairs, its not that I have to chase any deadline! It comes naturally to me.

Common (Cyber) Sense

Any deal based on an outright lie will come back to haunt you...... and a complete narration a bit of research on the ongoing unrest in the middle east. I have to keep myself updated with the current affairs, its not that I have to chase any deadline! It comes naturally to me.

My eyes were itchy and I decided to give myself some relief with a glass of icy cold coffee. Yes cold coffee in winters! I know how to do it, step inside the kitchen and put together all the stuff, while pretending that you dont really acknowledge anyone else's presence. Mom unverbal nags must have started by now... You see, I know my mom will nag me, but I get a kick with a cold punch smouldering through me! Done.. I managed to do it by avoiding eye contact with mum and seeking today's newspaper.

Many NRIs from the gulf are coming back. I thinking about the India-Pakistan partition. Just a signature by Nehru and consent of Mahatma Gandi divided the country into two. And my ancestors who were well setteled were suppose to come to India. I always wanted to know how did it feel during partition, I wanted the first hand narration. But to my despair, I do not have anyone to sit with me on the terrace at night and talk about the partition. I have managed to get the information in bits and pieces. I google about the places of my ancestoral origin. Facebook connects me to people with similar interests and I had many virtual friends.

Prayag was one of them. We never missed chatting at least once a day, and I never wanted that day to end. He too seem to be too eager to chat with me, I felt like a teenaged girl madly in love with a rock star. He actually was a rock star, atleast fits into my defination of a rockstar. I knew that whenever he would confess his love to a girl, it would be under the moonlight, on a beach and he would compose a song and strum the guitar. I knew this much coz it had been really a lot of time, something like 6 months, approximately 178 days of chatting everyday, without fail.

I wanted to take this forward and decided to meet him. But no wonder, its only commonsense that one finds cons on the virtual world, its full of liars. Knowing that people lie online, I would be a fool to fall for him.

PS: I know those who are die heart believers in love would differ.. I am not :p
