Cricket’s journey

Down the road, there was a kennel. Behind the wall, you could hear dogs barking.

There was a crack on the wall and a cricket crawled out of it.

It wiggled its antennas, started chirping and headed towards where the barking was coming from.

Yessir. Cricket has gone to the dogs, if you ask me.

Well said. It's time to pee-wee from cricket now.

Very Un-Som-Like Post Som,

But all the same happy to see you alive and kicking :-)

But I beg to defer. Cricket is too beautiful a game to go to dogs or to any species !

It is some individuals and some teams that have shown the tendency.

But this is as much so with our morals itself. The degradation is with the society as a whole. Cricketer is but a part of it.

How do you rate a Soldier who sells the secrets of his own country for a few dollars more?

How do you rate a Doctor who operates on a patient unnecessarily just to rake in the moolah ?

And the list can go on. Cricket still is beautiful my friend and you keep blogging because it is people like you who add to the charm.

The R, welcome to Doosra :)

Som said...

Govind, great to see you have not lost your perspective. Indeed, it's just yet another reflection of decaying values all around. Cheats will cheat, whichever profession they enter. Make him a clerk and he will ask for bribe....so on and so forth. Felt really bad and went unlike me. :)

BTW, will be back in elements soon, tickling everyone's funny bone :)

Govind Raj said...

Now that is the Spirit !

I had told you it will be "All is Well" Soon :-)

And one correction in the earlier comment...

I beg to differ :-)

That was a howler, perhaps because I forgot to munch on my two bananas in time today :-)

Som said...

Govind, pass on the remaining bananas when you are through. Overlooked that completely :)

Actually I liked "I beg to defer" - I think I'm going to steal that.

Som, Som, Som - the whole cricket fixing scandal has been depressing, hasn't it? I've noticed the cricket blogging world has taken a wee dip of late and I think that might be why.

But I will not have it that it has completely gone to the dogs. I just can't have that. I beg to defer!

Som said...

Sid...I think you are right. Maybe cricket has not gone to the dogs yet. Maybe it's just the blacksheeps you have everywhere.

It's a pity what's happening, but my love for the game will not diminish. Sure, there will be skepticism, esp around the flashy internationals and WC tournaments. Maybe it's time to switch from watching these to some local/less hyped stuff - ie. domestic. Or maybe sanity will find its way back.

Soulberry said...

Hang in there and don't you give up on the game. This is a time for feasting for the satirists...especially the wittier ones.

Som said...

VM, the India-Aus test series surely made me feel better :)

Som said...

Soulberry, sure you not provoking me into writing another post! This Commonwealth Games sapped my soul and just returned from Jodhpur where I saw disabled kids playing cricket. A fascinating story that I can't write on Doosra. Will post the link of course :)
