I wasn’t among the group of people fighting for freedom neither was I among the People celebrating the moment we got Independence. I didn’t see the life before Independence that keeps me beyond the limit of comparing what change it came from my view.
Whereas I was among the People cheering for team India throughout the World Cup and I was among the people celebrating the winning of Indian Cricket Team clutching over the cup After 28 Years. I was not the witness of both situations as it is beyond my age limit. However, I can tell you how India was feeling before and after World cup finale.
The celebration over the win was beyond India boundaries. Indian couldn’t resist them self with the rules of the country they were staying in. They were over joyed to think about anyone else. They were right or wrong at that position I don’t Know but the joy was telling the attachment they have with their country.
Now if we compare other factors between the two situations we can confirm a big win of World cup over Independence. Where Independence left us with a broken country with hatred between the two countries “INDIA and PAKISTAN”, this world cup left us with a hope of good relation between the two countries. Meeting of Prime ministers Mr. Gilani and Mr. Singh had shown us the light back which appeared to be in While Mr. Vajpayee was flourishing the post.
There are similarities too. Independence gave us pride as well as burden to maintain it, the same did the world cup. The glory, the pride and the joy Indians felt when the Team was crowned with Champions title a hope; a wish emerged in many hearts we deserve to feel this and want to maintain the feeling. Independence reunited us and Cricket has been doing this over years.
New upcoming slogan should Be “ JAI JAWAN , JAI KISAN , JAI Cricket”
