What Would Gandhi Do?

03 Mar


He’d probably ask the Indian cricket team to go over there and play ball. Which is why people find it a whole lot easier to repeat what Gandhi said than what Gandhi did.

What a horrible day for the Sri Lankans who stepped in to do a favor for their neighbors, the Pakistanis who love the sport and the families of the six policemen who were killed.

    That country is a basketcase and it makes attempts at friendship difficult for everyone in the subcontinent. I wouldn’t play there if I was a cricketer :-p My life’s worth a lot more than keeping up appearances in a nation that can’t even protect its own, leave alone others.

    Ow! 🙂 I know it’s silly to put your life in danger for the privilege of running after a little ball all day but I kinda wish they would go. It would be such a magnificent fuck you to all the loonies – hell, i’d get me a visa and go watch a game and I don’t even like kirkit!

    But wouldn’t the joke be on them if they were blasted into a million teeny pieces? Highly doubt the crazies would even get the F.U. :-p

    Mr. Rajdeep Sardesai mentioned 1972 Munich. I have no idea why. I also have no idea why he missed Operation Wrath of God!

    What worries me is the (to me) preposterous claim by some Pakistani minister on TV that India orchestrated this attack as revenge for the 26/11 ones, is gaining ground – at least according to some news stories.

    Another theory that scares me out of sleep now is the thought that the Taliban is behind this (they probably are) and that Pakistan’s nukes are within their reach…what then?

    Yeah..This is ‘The End’ for Pakistan’s cricket hosting ambitions for the next couple of years. Unless of course the Taliban in Pakistan take over and establish the ‘rule of law’. Then cricket will begin again(with no women spectators allowed, of course…and definitely no cheerleaders!). Sigh

    Pitu – hahaha, cheery little ray of sunshine aren’t you? I saw a little snippet of Dhoni saying “Thank God the govt didn’t let us go”. Poor thing. The IPL will be an intersting time.

    Adithya- he probably saw the movie the other day and liked it. 😀 Everything is like everything that went before, don’t you know?

    M – I’m a lot more worried about the latter than the former. I mean, you have got to expect the usual run around the bush when it comes to terror strikes in either country but the Taliban are not what I want to see as our neighbors.

    Prasanth – and then they can play with Zimbabwe I suppose. So sad yaar: no music, no movies, now no cricket? No wonder the Taliban always look so pissed off. I’d be miserable too if I had to live in a cave and not even play some kirkit.

    Deej – 😳 hangs head in shame 😳
    will you still talk to me on the playground? I;ll share my candy!
