Today my whole nation is bleeding.Their veins are pouring out.We are all bleeding blue.The men in blue with their aching bodies and heavy breathing have shut the men in all the other colours- red,yellow,green and blues of the other kind included as the home crowd cheered with exultation at every up,jeered its every wrong move and respected its every class act on its way.After 1983 India reached the finals in 2003 to be cruelly defeated by the Aussies.Hopes were dashed,dreams shattered.But tonight we did it.
India under the captainship of Dhoni won the 10th cup.Pride and joy is overflowing all around as everyone around me is celebrating a 2nd Diwali off season.
Hats off to being the 3rd team chasing the run to win the final ever;hats off to Gambhir who missed out on his century for 3 runs and contributed so much to the run rate;hats off to Tendulkar for whom this may the last WC;and finally hats off to Dhoni for what he said at the prize ceremony.
Yes the whole nation curses the team when they play like a bunch of retards or make the slightest of mistakes,but it is because the adrenaline pumps through all as the team booms and bangs on the field.
So much to say.Feeling so many things.For the cynics-take a day off and don't criticise.For the rest-Bloody Brilliantly keep Bleeding Blue!!!
