A snapshot from my Facebook post :
Last night the hype got better of me & I ended up paying a very large amount (by my standards) for a ticket to watch today's match.
Needless to say, I am heartbroken after the result.
To feel better, I had to look forward to more than India's play today & I went back to my first love - photography. Had some great photo sessions today. I'll leave you with those in a bit.
But before that, an important aspect of life we all need to take lessons on.
India, take heart - you played brilliantly till today. You (&your captain) were gracious in their defeat.
Even after winning, not once did the Pakistan captain acknowledge the effort of the opposition.
Pakistan have a long way to go on this front.
Add to it, the crowds were third grade & heartless. Not once would they clap for a good cricket shot or a great ball if it was from India.
4 incidents of aggression happened in my line of sight within 50 metres of what I could see.
Small good for nothing teenagers got abusive with white haired elderly men just because they wore blue.
After coming out from the stadium, a few Pak supporters in cars gesticulated with their middle fingers & mouthed expletives on women who wore blue.
At one point I even went behind one of those monkeys & asked them - "How does it feel to be on the winning side when you know you have fixers in your team?"
Man, you have no morals.
Crowd behaviour is one place where Pakistan has not evolved since the 1970s.
You can be noisy & say good things about yourself or bad things about the opposition cheekily.
But abuse is something that this part of humanity has to get over.
They hate us & they beat us today. I get that.
Probably they needed this sort of display to satisfy a country who has failed in ALL aspects of life on the global stage.
Good for them, but they have to evolve.
Not once would you see an Indian showing a middle finger to a woman who is Pakistani just because she is Pakistani or abuse an elderly 70 year old man because he wears green.
This really pains me.
They have the same genes as us, but something has gone wrong in the last 70 years which needs serious correction.
For now, I need sleep. I wish to thank the Indian team & pat myself for getting some close ups of the people I admire.
What's new with me?
I feel i have grown up.. because these days i look down on the younger generation :)
