India has won the ICC CWC 2011! Now India is world champion. I was about to publish this on the same day. But I thought the Cricket Fever is so high, that I don't know how many will be in the mood to listen the ground reality. I waited for two days. But what I see, IPL fever is already started and again the same question how many will be in the mood to listen the ground reality?
I don't know much about IPL, but I see Cricketers of different countries play in India. Means Yesterday's so called Ravan will be in the team of so called Ram. I don't understand how easily can people devote their feelings to whatever is forced by marketing masters. If we follow any spiritual leader, most of the intellectuals ridicule it, especially when the spiritual leader is Hindu.
Anyway, so I am still in the CWC 2011 and not in the IPL.
So, I saw how people were praying for Indian Team to win the world cup. All the Indians were united. After the victory, I listened people were saying, "They have done for all of us! The men in blue. Really! They have done it for all of us."
Someone said "Sachin has carried India for 21 years." Even for any biggest patriot who served for the country, or sacrificed his life for the country like Bhagat Singh, nobody say this sentence. The nation is above the person always. I thought to say, "PoK was not much heavy for The so called God, why didn't he carry that too." "Why this God could not stop 26/11 which was happened in MUMBAI?"
He is just a Cricketer! I am not denying his greatness in Cricket, but now he is above The India? He has carried India!!!!. I don't think people have said such words about Gandhiji also though he is officially our Father of Nation.
Why can't we keep these people in the limits of sports only?
This CWC was so important for the country that I saw , PMs and other politicians of different political parties were watching the match. Are they confessing that they are not capable to do anything for the country and now everything is in the hands of Men in Blue only. We think these political leaders , ministers and PM, as VIP, but can any VIP find time for watching matches?
As I had gone through the Cricket love, I can feel the feelings of all the Cricket fans. But this love is going psychologically in abnormal condition.
After seeing all this madness, I had a thought in my mind, just imagine -
If Indians, my fellow country men have same fever, same unity forgetting all the differences, same faith for the real burning issues of the country, same anger against the enemy of the country, same love for the INDIA - (which is expressed in words always chake de india, de ghuma ke ...etc. etc.), and mainly the same tension for the Kashmir Issue,
The Kashmiri Pandits would be back in their own land without any terror,
If we really had such a big hatred for Pakistan as we show in the Ind - Pak Cricket match, there would be nothing like PoK.
If we were really united and show our potential for our country, International Community would never dare to put pressure on Kashmir Issue.
Now the need of the hour is to show same love for the country on the ground reality.
Being The Cricket World Cup winner for just four years, is not going to make any any difference.
After the embarrassing defeat of Pakistan in war of 1971, Pakistan has stopped to go for direct war and instead what they are doing, I think we all know.
We never see this love for the country for real issues,
Why our emotions are so strong for Cricket only?
The victory of Marketing masters, the glamour for Cricket and Films, the advertisements by Cricketers, their strong reactions, body language in the match (I don't know how much is acting in that?).
Political leaders, media, terrorists all know our emotional weakness (should I say physical weakness too?)
Why are we wasting a big psychological and physical energy on just a sport? Some of the Cricket fans may say it is all fun, what is wrong in having fun and enjoying life? This much abnormal tension is not fun, this is dangerous and please stay awake don't surrender yourself to these false sentiments.
My brother Dnyanesh explained me how politicians know to use our emotions. Once our physical and emotional energy is diverted in some other thing, in our country it is diverted in Cricket, it will not be expressed against corrupt politicians or the real burning issues like Kashmir, terrorism. We will never know the injustice we are living with.
Just imagine how beneficial is all this wastage of time and energy in Cricket to the international community, especially U. S. who has the fear of India becoming Super Power.
Let's unite to make our Beloved India the Real World Champion.
P.S. : Yesterday I met a new friend Jaidev - he suggested me this article for the facts about Jammu Vs. Kashmir. Must read article to know the facts about J and K.
