World Cup Resolutions.

It is probably a good time to bring in a little perspective amidst the madness of the up-coming world cup. Nirmal Shekar invites us Indian fans to make ten resolutions which do just that.

The following is very timely.
Let us resolve that we will never again say that Team India carries the hopes of a billion people and the prayers of that many are with Rahul Dravid's men. The truth — if anybody still cares for it in this age of ephemera, an age of boosterism and saturation coverage of popular sport in the media — is that a vast majority of that billion has rather more mundane everyday concerns. Their hopes and dreams are not hooked to the fortunes of the men in blue.

In fact all of them are nice. Read them.
