I learnt many things in these 12 hrs:
I guess there is god. The reason:God gives signs of result, it just we need to read it. Like when first innings got over, with SL scoring more than expected 275, many thought India had little chances & so did I. But there god gave me a signal that India will win. And the signal was football. Simultaneaously, MAN-U vs West Ham Utd match was going on. When Manu equlled 2-2 & trailing by 2-0 till 60th minute (& India innings was yet to start), I told my roomie, if MAN-U wins India wins. And see it happened. MAN-U & India both won, after being in back foot. It was rise of phoenix for both.
When it comes to cricket, I guess all Indians are superstitious. And with the win, I am pretty sure, he/she must be thinking, India won because of them. I was obviously one of them, when I didn’t get moved from my place for 3.5 hrs, nor did talk. So were my room-mates. Everybody had their own way of punishing themselves, just to ensure India wins. I am sure many would have stayed hungry all day, many would have remained thirsty all day, many would have drunk all day, many would have left their favorite food, many would have not seen match itself . I am sure there are many Indians, who must have prayed all the time or watched TV in their same dresses as semi final.
There were spectators in stadium who were meditating despite 30,000 shouting crowd. I guess even Gautam Buddha would have applauded this. There was Virat Kohli, who didn’t took out his pads & was standing till end of match. There was another person in dressing room, who had pillow all the time. There was Preity Zinta, who sported same bangles as previous matches.
Following is the proposed answer for question slated to come in 10th class board 2012: ” Bharat ki viswa cup 2011 ki jeet par prasang likhe” (write an essay on India’s win in 2011 CWC):
“2011 CWC final was played between 11 Indian men & 10 Srilankan men+ 1 Mahila, at God’s birth place Mumbai, on auspicious date of 2nd April. Srilanka after winning controversial toss, chose to bat first & thanks to gentlemanship of Indians, the only Mahila of Sri Lanka was allowed to score a century. As per Indian culture, we are not allowed to attack Mahila. Riding on Mahila century Sri Lanka scored 275 in 50 overs. India were struggling at 31-2, but thanks to youngs guns Gauti & Virat, India bounced back. At end, with help of Captains innings of Dhoni, India won by 5 wickets.”
The WC also saw oppurtunistic people with Poonam Pandey leading the way. I am sure, we gonna see her in some movie very soon. And since it was for BLUE cause, it may even be a blue movie..;-). Next of course are all the news channel who wanted to have their share of TRPs. Next are the newspaper, who have up their prices of 3rd April edition, because many gonna save it, even if they donot read it. Next are the brands, whose brand ambassador are in the winning squad. Last, but not least myself, who posted this article.
Following are the flood of messages I received or created on my own & thought of sharing in this happy occasion:
1) Anhoni ko honi karde. Honi ko anhoni. Ek jagah jab jamaah ho teeno: Rajni, Ghajini aur Dhoni.
2) Breaking news: Diwali ab se har saal, november nahin, balki 2-April ko banayi jayegi. Ram sena demolishes Lanka sena.
3) Why India allowed Jayawadene to score 100. Kyunki Indians Mahila par attack nahin karte.
4) “He carried burden of country for 20 yrs, it was time for us to lend shoulder to him”- well said Virat.
Anyhow INDIA WON & it was happy ending.
