First, the weather here at Bradfield is really terrible. Cloudy, wet, cold and gloomy. Whatever happenend to the summer that we once knew.
There is only one topic today. It’s the cricket war at MCG. Forget about the forthcoming war with the Comrades in Beijing. We have a war here on our shore. The Indians are coming, the Indians are here. And they are taking our wickets and our women (men?). Who they think are, some superstars from the Bollywood extravaganza like:
The man they call the Tom Cruise of Bollywood touched down in Dubai Thursday and generated as much buzz as the real Cruise did on opening night.Appearing at a panel discussion at the Dubai International Film Festival in support of Don 2, the sequel to 2006’s wildly popular action film Don, Shah Rukh Khan elicited screams of “I love you” when he took the stage after a brief 3D preview of the film. – READ MORE

So what did they do? They tried to nobble the Indians by introducing cricket to the subcontinent. They succeeded beyond their wildest imagination. In a subcontinent where they cant agree on anything and everything, not religions, not languages, not customs, they agree on cricket. They agree on on cricket as the new religion, the new unifying force between Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. When the cricket is on, everything stops.
So a new war is on the Indian Summer that we are not having:
