Bong vengeance!

If fireworks in the Kolkata sky
Have left you wondering why
Bongs are cheering loss
Note, it's simply to gloss
India's defeat today - sans Saurav Bhai!

It is true! Team India loses to South Africa by 10wickets at the Eden Gardens and the sky in my neighborhood is lit with fireworks (left over from Diwali I am sure). So much for team spirit!

#Update: A report from Vijay who was there at the stadium.


  1. I feel Kolkatan's are taking Sourav issue more as more important than Team India's defeat. That's the reason for such celebration.

  2. True...always losing sight of the big picture...

    The Kolkatans are Crazy People - They belive that friends are enemies and enemies are friends. For putting their point they will put-on fire their own house and cheer like Nero.
