Cricket, Population and Nation

Image
Right from childhood, when I watch Cricket matches, I pray for India to win. Especially major tournaments and world cups, I always wanted India to win at “any” cost. Why? Yes, you are right. It’s because I am in Indian. That’s not all. There was another reason why I always wanted India to win all matches and tournaments. What is that? Unlike any other nation, a win by India makes an incomparably huge population happy. I always used to say that India had the highest population among Cricket playing nations so India had to win. You don’t have to be intelligent to know this fact because we all know China doesn’t play Cricket. But, I always wanted to look at the exact numbers. Finally, I had some time today to look at it and come out with some great (!) conclusions. Here you go…


Australia 22,567,780 New Zealand 4,393,500 Sri Lanka 21,513,990 Pakistan 174,578,558 England 49,138,831 South Africa 49,991,300 West Indies 3,117,300 Rest of the world 325,301,259 India 1,191,000,000 All

Same Gray

Better than me?
Can't manage!
Don't want to be the worse!

Worse than me?
Can't manage!
Don't want to be with the worse!

Keep looking for...
Those as good as me
Those as bad as me
Not better than me
Not worse than me
Same amount of black
Same amount of white
Same amount of gray

Even the few
As gray as me
Don't remain as-is
As long as too long

Even if they remain so
Either I don't let them be so
Or they don't let me be so

Somehow
Have never seen two same grays!
Every gray is unique!

Majority-Minority

You never have to demand anything
Your interests will be protected
If you are from majority

If you tell us what you want
Your interests will be protected
If you are from minority

Your noises
Will fall on deaf ears
If you are from a minority
Wearing the hat of majority

Your noises
Will fall on dead ears
If you are from a minority So less in availability
Not even having audibility
