Why I will not celebrate


India  beat Pakistan in the World Cup cricket match at Adelaide yesterday, but I see no reason to celebrate.

  I regard cricket as one of the opiums of the Indian masses, the others being politics ( which has gone down to the lowest level in India ), filmstars, religion, astrology, etc.  Evidently one opium is not enough to keep the Indian masses in a state of intoxication, soseveral are required.

 The real problems in India are socio-economic---massive poverty and unemployment, large scale malnutrition ( affecting about 50% of Indian children ), almost total absence of healthcare and good education for the poorer section of our people ( who are 75% of our 1250 million population ), farmers' suicides, discrimination against women, minorities and dalits, etc.

 Cricket and the other opiums mentioned above divert the attention of our people from these real issues, and attempt to depict non issues like winning a cricket match as the real issue.,

 So the real issue before the the Indian people is not how to abolish poverty, unemployment, malnutrition, etc. The real issue is whether India has beaten New Zealand ( or better still, Pakistan ) in a cricket match. or whether Virat Kohli has scored a century.

  So please do celebrate India's victory over Pakistan as much as you like, but don't expect me to join
in the celebrations. I refuse to be part of this stupid pantomime. Such celebrations are an insult to the poor people in India, who constitute 75% of our population, as they divert the attention of the people from the real problems facing India, and I refuse to insult my people.

  2. Everyone to their own. Its the taste for the trivial which makes us human. Otherwise all we are thinking of is individual survival.

  5. Katju Sir, I further see no reason to celebrate because Cricket was brought to India by the Invader British and India V/S Pakistan is no match between 2 nations ans Pakistan is not a NATION but a BRITISH created Artificial Entity. World cups are between nations and Pakistan is not eligible to play as it is not a nation.

  7. Cricket keeps diverting the core issues not only in India but also in most of the poor south east Asian countries like Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh..... But the irony is that Brittain who introduced this game does not have much fascination for this stupid game.
