Took a long time to write another post. This idiot was going through the pain of taking those irrelevant theoretical University Exams.
Those exams have their importance as well but what is most important to every kid in fact every person on earth, is Vacation.
Absurd! You would be shouting at me. June is ending the vacations get over now!
Excuse me! It doesn’t need a vacation to talk of vacations.
Well vacation is the time when one is free of all tensions and worries and can enjoy life freely. Vacations are ought to be utilized in a way to discover many other things which we skip in our monotonous daily routine.
But those summer breaks ! Are they really worth calling vacations?
‘He will join dance classes’, his mother said. ‘Let him join the sports camp’, was his father’s words of resilience. ‘Computers are today’s demand, you must join computer classes’, was the suggestion from the irritating neighbour. No one wanted him to enjoy and set himself free to discover the lot of things happening around him every second. This is the story of almost every child in May and June, especially in India.
Kids are like soft petals of a flower, which if pressed too hard, will get destroyed. They need to be given some space to blossom and thrive.
Its not the case only with kids, but also with the Older kids, I mean the adults. They take break from Office to spend some time with family and explore few more things in life. But this fast-paced world never allows them to get away from the Laptop or Tablet.
The world around us is changing at such a speed that the machines are taking the front seat and humans have gone on the back seat. The time is close when we would be spending vacations on computers or Tablets.
Here we are heading towards the end of another season of the DLF Indian Premier League. Though Indian talent hadn’t had much of the opportunity, there were certain unlocked mysteries in this season. Ajit Chandila‘s Hat-trick (pulling a rabbit out of the Magicians’ hat) is still fresh in the mind. Just two Ranji Matches for Haryana, nobody knew him that well. Interestingly, Jammy forgot his name at the Toss( or was it strategy?). Another mystery, which even the GOD(SRT) could not solve, is Sunil Narine. Don’t get confused he isn’t Indian rather he is a West Indian, named after Mr. Sunil Gavaskar. No one could really tell which ball would turn which way! Another revelation was Mandeep Singh from the Kings Xi squad. Paul Valthaty not finding form (not even a place in team) and Gilly out with Injury , Mandeep gave strong starts to Punjab at the top. Rahane, Rohit, Naman etc. don’t really need to give a mention here as they already have represented the national side on the highest level. Oh I just forgot Shahbaz Nadeem. This young left armer from Delhi is definitely a rising star of Indian Cricket. Someone would have thought before IPL had begun that DD would struggle with spin bowling department, but Shahbaaz proved his worth in the playing XI.
Some talent did get a platform in this year’s IPL but the Franchises now look to win more matches rather than giving sufficient opportunity to young Indian Cricketers( the motto of IPL “where talent meets opportunity” goes into Trash). Kamran Khan was sent to become a farmer. KXIP didn’t give justice to Abhishek Nayar’s talent. DC tried to do something but they were outclassed in almost every game(except against PWI). Dada didn’t bother of talent rusting on the bench.
In all, IPL seems to become more of a profit making Industry for BCCI rather than being a cricket tournament as it was conceived by the Board in 2008. Money flowing like water the business remains a mystery in itself. Let’s see where this year’s IPL takes Indian Cricket.
Hope for the best!!
