India just lost the second Test at SCG a few minutes ago, and since then there has been a steady debate on all the TV 'news' channels. The whole country seems to be immersed in this imbroglio. On how our country was cheated by the twelfth Australian 'player' Steve Bucknor, who strangely seems to favor the white skinned Australians over us brown Indians. Why is it strange ? because Steve Bucknor is as black as they come and I feel that he would feel closer to us 'brownies' than to the Caucasians. Maybe he feels that way due to that particular day in 1983 when...
I am faced with a dilemma of my own. On one hand I am elated that the Indian team lost. Why am I elated ? The Indian team by no means is the best in the world, Sachin with his insistence at failing miserably in matches which matter, or dravid with his pusillanimous Captaincy, etc... our team is a paper tiger and a good one a that, then why do they get so much fucking money ?
BCCI Bigshot:'Oh! look people, here is our beloved Indian cricket team, they got fucked in the first round of the World Cup, boo hoo, let's give them even more money and cheer them up, poor souls'
BCCI Bigshot's secretary:'But sir, we live in a country where people even today die from hunger\cold\dehydration and many people don't get a decent meal everyday!'
BCCI Bigshot:'Nonsense, we have a national duty to perform, we have to make the cricketers feel like gods, lest they fail miserably again, let us give them tax breaks on the new snazzy cars that they buy, and make it up by passing it on to the average Indian hard working schmuck who by now has gotten used to being ass fucked and won't feel a thing. After all, all you need to keep the schmuck happy is some cricket, a few mms scandals, and the hopes of a solution to the traffic problem and that's that.'
So when they lose like morons, and get humiliated, I feel that at least then, they redeem themselves and the Crores of rupees they earn. Now, there: is great all-round entertainment.
Another aspect to this situation is my belief in the equality of man, what is being done is unfair. I am not a big cricket fan anymore, but I was appalled at the decisions taken by Steve Bucknor as Umpire, they were wrong and clearly fueled by malice. Bucknor is known to take time in giving his decisions, however that aspect of his umpiring was missing, a fact I find suspicious. The world (sigh)! If only it were perfect.
