post world cup mortem

While the World Cup has now become an element of the past and India's defeat is being discussed and debated and criticised, WCNJ ("America's first and only 24 hour a day 7 day a week, Indian FM radio station") continues to air those fast-buck "inspirational"/utopian pop songs about India and Cricket. There's one that includes the corniest line in a long time: "cricket hi to hai desh ka Fevicol". And the other one whose rock ballad-ish chorus ends with "...hai World Cup hamara". Wishful thinking, in past, present and retrospect, and a few quick bucks. (The Adnan Sami video was kinda cool though -- if only for the Big B's beard coloured up with the three colours that adorn the national flag).
