It was a real treat watching our Indian players’ determination to win the World Cup and managing to beat Sri Lanka with six wickets in hand. I was all admiration for Jayawardene and Dhoni who stood like the Rock of Gibraltor and the young Yuvraj Singh’s performance. I am not sure of the repercussions our winning would have at the macro level but there have certainly been repercussions at the micro level.To begin with the milk was delivered an hour late, the shop in the neighbourhood from where I pick up my loaf of bread did not open till almost ten o clock as the shopkeeper overslept, it was the same with the newspaper boy and just as I was beginning to reconcile myself with all these delays, the ironwallah wanted an advance of rs.500/ urgently saying it was to pay his son’s school fees. It appears the boy had bought crackers for rs.500/ (with the amount he had given for paying school fees) to celebrate our victory !Well, life literally came to a standstill on Saturday, no traffic on roads, no patients at doctors’ clinics, scanty attendance at offices and colleges, no visitors or phone calls and to top it all no Visitors to my BLOG!
