Ok so my first post inspired by cricket.
Saurav G. is not in the indian cricket team. And so how can we allow Indian team to play in eden gardens? That was the message we all got watching the fans there.
Ok I donot claim to be a cricket expert. But I know that, even if Saurav G is not in the team, the fans in eden gardens must support the India.
But yesterday, they were booing India. When Dravid got out the people were overjoyed. And SA winning was cheered. Oh is Bengal in India? Whats more important being a bengali or being a Indian?

    While what Chappell did cannot be condoned, the bboorish attitude of Kolkattans has hardly been noticed by the people and media alike. Ganguly's outlived his usefullness to this team as far as the one dayers are concerned, this simple fact went unnoticed by the supporters. Tommorow you will grow old as will everyone else. Are you going to sue your employer for recruiting fresh engineers in your place? Vijay Merchant a legendary Opener from Bombay had once remarked "Its better to retire when people are still asking - WHY, rather than asking - WHEN !" Amongst all the past cricketers I remeber only Gavaskar who followed this maxim. He retired after scoring a double century at lords in the Bicentennial match between MCC XI and World XI.
    No one's larger than the Team. Ganguly should realize this and gracefully bow out of the scene. Everyone shall remember him as probably the greatest captain of India!

    Yeah sandeep. While I am not condoning chappels action, it must be remembered that he too is a human being who can get angry.
    And I personally, like most people of India consider him one of the finest captains India had. But that doesnot mean I want him to stay in team forever.
