India Vs Pakistan

Posted on

If you are here to read my appreciation for the match, you are in the wrong place. I hate cricket… from the bottom of my heart. I don’t know when the hatred started. Because at home nobody is a fan. Sure, my brother is but since 5 of us have never spent too much time together I don’t remember too much cricket watching happening at home. Maybe he watched the matches when in boarding and let us have the TV during vacations.

Maybe I started hating it once I got married and realized that it is part of my life now. I cannot get away from it no matter what. I seriously doubt I will get a divorce on the grounds that I hate cricket as much as KC loves it. I will need a more non superficial reason for a divorce.

Now that THAT is out of the way, I don’t understand the obsession with the India Vs Pakistan matches. I don’t understand our obsession with Pakistanis. Why do we hate them so much? Why are we so happy to see them humiliated? If I have to pick one country for that, it has to be USA. Is that why they don’t have a cricket team? They don’t, right? Because I have no idea.

I spent my Sunday productively by running 16 km in the gym and running around Galleria trying to find a decent place for food. After 3 bad experiences one after the other, I went back to Choko La… my trusted place… again.

I don’t understand why people give live commentary on twitter and fb. Like, who cares? Those who care are watching the match with the commentary and they probably have people to talk to. Those who don’t care, well… don’t care. I was called ‘bitter’ and ‘anti national’ on twitter because I didn’t give a fuck about the match … at all. I can bet atleast 80% of the audience has not  played cricket even once in the last 5 years.

Anyways, my life is over till the World Cup. Thankfully, I have a loooooot of comedy shows lined up 27th Feb onwards.

And here are some hilarious tweets on the match.

The last creative ad i saw was Vodafone’s zuzu during IPL.

How bad were the ads? I didn’t watch too many but heard horrible reviews online. What is wrong with brands? Why are they wasting money? I don’t think I want to buy ‘Dettol’ ever again. Hell, I might even stop using Reckitt products from now on.

This is like our Super Bowl. Except it has the worst possible ads ever made in the history of advertising. #IndvsPak

Rega Jha @RegaJha

it’s so sad that no matter who wins, Pakistanis will continue to be way hotter than us and we’ll continue to be their ugly neighbours

 Would you believe ‘coz of the above tweet Rega was trending on twitter AND she received rape threats. Seriously!!! How ridiculous are people? Specially considering the fact that the above is true and funny. Of course, Pakistani men and women are hotter. There is no debate about it. 

God @TheTweetOfGod ·

My only comment on #IndvsPak is this: any time a contest between them doesn’t end in a nuclear explosion, everybody wins.

If I ask people which war they want to win against Pakistan- a nuclear or a cricket match, am sure most of the junta will opt for the latter. 

Sad but true.

See, if you hadn’t insisted on the partition, it would have been your century too.

Like two intense ex-lovers, we are still obsessed with each other

 I think that’s it. This is the reason for our obsession with Paks

The coin they use in the toss is very important for Pakistan. It’s worth 90% of their GDP.

 Lots and lots of jokes on the coin

Anyway. cya. I have the day off tomorrow because of some shit festival… I don’t even know why it’s celebrated. But I need to wake up early, workout, drop KC to work, get our electricity meter checked and then take a metro to Pragati Maidan for the book fair. I may even drop by Sarojini Nagar tomorrow after almost a year. And then back home for another workout and a yoga session at night.
