Its not funny its a slap on us who claim to be “mad about cricket” how lovely a thought- we keep blaming the cricketers for fixing but let’s introspect why are they doing it? Because common man sees greed everywhere. *applause*Richa Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 5:00 am Thank u Richa … the doodle was inspired by real life experience … back in 96 when India lost to Sri Lanka at Eden where Kambli was seen crying .. I know so many of us still school kids cried .. as if we had lost our family member..I remember not meal .. that night and an afternoon to follow.. today i see on of those die-hard cricket fan of mine , working for a MNC doing bet among a small circle of his colleagues.. just for fun !! The question is have we also not changed our approach toward the gentlemen’s game ..? why blame Vindoo .. Sree.. BCCI..IPL .. all alone !? Reply KaJo on May 22, 2013 at 12:49 pm May be in kid’s eye, it is still a lose as you felt back then in 96. My nephews discuss cricket the same I used to do as a kid. They don’t show signs of affect of this fixing. May be in those days while we were crying with Kambli for not qualifying, some people among our parents generations were worrying the money they put on bets. Its the same story, we change the phase. Well thats my perspective. May be totally wrong. Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 12:54 pm so true KaJo .. but still the percentage of people betting was lot lot less.. today a youngster of class 12 is heard betting on players amongst his friends .. thats what happened in our locality … a kid lost money in challenge … and stole from his pappa’s pocket to pay his friends. Times are not exactly the same.. but yester years were lot better .. this is my thought. 🙂 Reply subzeroricha on May 22, 2013 at 1:46 pm I agree with you… why blame IPL or BCCI.. they are doing it because we are driving them… its a shame on all of us quite seriously. We dont realise but we are party to almost all kinds of wrong doing in this country.. Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 5:16 pm yes Richa we are weather we realize or not confess or not …. its an India which we made and we blame only opportunists Reply vikram316 on May 22, 2013 at 4:55 am Perfect satire on cricket! 🙂 Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 5:01 am thanks Vikram !! 🙂 Appreciate your compliment friend. Reply matheikal on May 22, 2013 at 5:22 am Yes, what really matters is the money involved, not the game !!! Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 5:28 am oh yes !! IPL is not to be blamed alone .. its the fans who have become money minded too Reply Jeetendra on May 22, 2013 at 5:56 am In my opinion, Would have been perfect if CSK won and Fan sobs for his loss… Nice doodle once again..!!! Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 6:30 am indeed Jeet !! You are so very right !! Very very right !! I thought but skipped out of my brains while writing the dialogue… I think I should make a change ! 🙂 Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 6:38 am done !! 🙂 I made CSK win and Fan loose the money 🙂 Reply Jeetendra on May 22, 2013 at 8:38 am Thanks…Kisi ko toh mere salaah ki kadar hui… 🙂 Great..!!! Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 8:50 am 🙂 mere liye to important hai your advise undoubtedly !! Reply sahi on May 22, 2013 at 6:36 am well no game seems to be played for what it was meant to be played. There is no sportsmanship! Everywhere people see only money! no one seems to be content! Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 6:39 am the biggest irony of life is money comes only out of contentment and yet people are not content and look for money 🙂 Reply Isha Khanna on May 22, 2013 at 6:39 am apt for modern times! Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 6:42 am thanks Isha 🙂 thanks for sharing your view Reply sangeeta on May 22, 2013 at 6:49 am Very true! Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 6:50 am 🙂 Reply Bushra on May 22, 2013 at 6:49 am 🙂 AWESOME! Simply AWESOME!BTW: umm….i think again there’s again this fault in the doodle that it would be better if i could read the second message(the TV scene) first and then the first one(the man). It’s a bit ulta pulta don’t u think so? or it’s just me! 😐 Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 6:54 am hahahaa!! So true … u always catch me by my collar .. hahaha.. i try to escape .. but .. hahaha.. I dont know …if it is just my natural style .. but I am always doing this goof up and this one has no room to rectify the mistake … 🙂 Well.. I suppose .. its because as a kid i used to love …reading from right to left from the bottom to up …and the sentences and their meanings would either become meaningless or different meaning all together and I used to have fun … its only 5 years back .. I somehow stopped reading things right to left and bottom to up .. for fun .. but the hangover remains 😀 Reply Bushra on May 22, 2013 at 7:14 am Hahaha 😀 Glad my noticing made you smile,laugh,and recollect your past memories 🙂 “right to left from the bottom to up” Now really? 😉 Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 7:19 am try kar maza ayega ! exactly the way i told u .. last word on a page to first … 😀 Reply Geetashree Chatterjee on May 22, 2013 at 6:58 am Times have changed and so have our sentiments Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 7:12 am so true ! emotions less .. materialistic more !

Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 9:08 am 😉 Reply mridula on May 22, 2013 at 8:48 am Well said! Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 8:52 am 🙂 thanks Mridu Reply stylebees on May 22, 2013 at 8:51 am it’s so sad….cricket gets so much publicity in India still all this fixing goes on 🙁 Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 9:07 am 🙁 indeed… we treat cricket as religion but now religion of Money Reply Easwar Arumugam on May 22, 2013 at 9:47 am Time changes drastically and people mellow with ages and changed circumstances.

Reply My Say on May 22, 2013 at 5:19 pm aar mone koriyo na bhai.. it is a milestone in my life… turning point.. i left playing cricket and watching too .. 2011 never bought me any happiness..as much as it could in 96 .. saala kende ekaakaar … my mothr still recalls .. that fate-less night and next day when they saw I was an Indian first and her son after that .
