India Adieu

India bids adieu to the World Cup after failing to clear the first round. It's disheartening for the millions of fans back home to see their wild cats domesticated by novices and managing only a meek meow. The media onslaught has been predictably intense and the antics of die-hard fans making a mockery of Team India is on in full swing.

Though our team's potential always looked dubious to me, I had never imagined things would come to such a pass. We have been cut to size by minnows and it's time for us to open our eyes and accept reality no matter how acrimonious it might be.

Hype wasn't commensurate to potential. That's the bottomline.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
