IPL-2...triumph of never say die spirit…

shared by straight point on Saturday, April 18, 2009


IPL-2 is going to happen today…and i must applaud BCCI and Modi for they have gone ahead in organizing it in such a short span of time…

i call it triumph of will…coz it goes to show that rather than sulking on security and other issues…they had the presence of mind to look at adversity as opportunity…so here we are waiting for IPL-2 to start in three weeks flat…

if this is not the triumph of human will than what is…

there is something which is embedded in deep roots in all of us indians that we always…almost unfailingly…will find a way to come out of any situation…and if you are wondering what’s the spirit is…than any indian will tell you that no one virtually no one can beat us in what we call ‘jugaad’…

we have done the same again…and this extravaganza carnival will go ahead with all its razzmatazz...in south africa to melt geographical boundaries that we have created and to conquer even more fans than the previous season…as if it was designed this way originally…

cricket has it in it to pull you to its roots… from wherever you are…wherever you go…

cricket has it in it that will make you ask for ‘score kya hua hai’ (what's score?) … irrespective of the form it is played in…irrespective of situation you are in…

so while the flavor of cricket will be T20 for a while now…i ask you to enjoy it…uninhibitedly…

before i sign off...thanks south africa...for the effort you have put in at such a short notice...and for being the true host...

it is a clear victory of 'WILL'.
We can say it is a successful 'jugadbaji' of modi and bcci. of course, SA has played a vital role in it-thanks SA...

Modi isn't going to let anyone forget about this.

"Did you hear about how I headed the organisation of the IPL shift from India to South Africa? Yes? Well, I'll tell you again. In more detail this time."

Still, top job in actually shifting it so smoothly.
