This is a soliloqhy between me and my alter-ego:
Hey, am totally confused about this topic.. it gives me the creeps.. gimme some god damn ideas na..Its too simple yaar.. its the dream of every indian.. what would every indian want to see happening??
Every indian would want India to become a super power.. play a vital part in the UN.. have a very high per capita income.. solve many of the world's problems.. blah blah..Arey.. enough already.. shouldn't have let you talk at all.. a dream is something a person would like to witness during his/her lifetime.. the things you are saying may happen.. but you won't be alive to witness all these.. think simple man..
Hmmm.. i bet that every indian would want to see a corruption-free, unemployment free and an educated india..True.. but the only problem is all these problems are interconnected and so will keep on pestering.. U just can't be free from them totally.. the other countries have also failed in achieving these..
What is your suggestion?? a country free from caste based discrimination??As long as politicians exist.. caste will exist and as long as caste exists, politicians will exist.. tell me something which runs in the blood of every indian.. something which affects their pride and passion.. Indians are passionate people with a pinch of great pride you know..
Hmmm.. cricket..Finally.. now u r on the right track.. its their never - ending desire to win the world cup..
No.. with the team now, am sure india will win the world cup atleast once before i die.. i have a better dream..And whats that.. about not performing in football??
No.. not performing in other sports other than cricket..For once you have a better idea.. continue.. am off to sleep..
"Hockey is the national sport of India
but cricket is the most popular sport
there is a football team with 11 players
whose names we can't remember
there is a cricket team with 11 players
whose names we will never forget
a beautiful game, cricket
it just masks all the others perfect
should we put the blame
on the cricket game?
no,point your fingers to those
who rose the game to fame
but restricted the fame only to this game.."
The BCCI is the highest monetary contributor to the ICC.. The IPL is one of the very first successfully running competitions in the world.. Even though, the BCCI contributes to the development of other sports in the country, all its efforts have been in vain.. India currently ranks 149 in the FIFA rankings.. the whole country celebrated like anything when abhinav bindra won the first individual gold medal.. nearly half of the population won't be knowing saina nehwal, jeev milkha singh, sunil chetri or narain karthikeyan.. i really am a very big fan of vijay mallya who was responsible for the upliftment of formula one in india.. similarly millionaires like him could take the responsiblity of improving other sports along with the government.. India doesn't lack talent.. it just lacks the proper supportive people.. with this i would like to conclude by saying that the "Indian dream" would definitely be to see India start prospering in other sports too..
P.S: Just another sports fanatic wishing to see India lift the FIFA world cup or get the highest medal tally in the olympics..
