How Do They Do it??

Man this is one thing that baffles me everytime i think about it. How could the Indian team blow up their chances of a series win in S.A? After a killer performance in the first test and being in strong positions in both the 2nd & 3rd tests, the team suddenly decides to screw up and throws away the series. And this is not the first time, i remember numerous instances of the team crumblin under pressure. Maybe its not the skill tht they're lackin but it is the attitude that sucks. Look at countries like Australia,S.A and any of the other big countries in cricket or sport for that matter. They've produced countless amazin athletes and players who always come good when needed. Maybe its somethin about the culture and upbringing that they have?? Think we need a change from our stereotypical, regimented and conservative culture. I mean, right from childhood, we are forced to trod down this narrrow and barren path and are supposed to stay on it forever. Taking the road less travelled is strictly for fools!! they say. Dreams and living them are simply reserved for the "chosen" few. How are we supposed to shine with thinking like this?? And the worst of it all, most people go through this zombie walk thinkin its jus normal and thats what they're supposed to do. Cmon man, your not a machine, in fact, u have one, its called the BRAIN and your supposed to use it!!! Maybe that swhat they need to teach us in schools, how to use the brain..... That may be what the Indian team needs to do......friggin morons!!! .................Huh, weird post this is, i start with the Indian Cricket team and end on the brain(???!!!) Maybe its my brain that needs a checkup....or maybe??...........balls, i'm just bored!!!!!!!!!!

maybe it's the red tapism that everything seems to be caught up in india. i'd say it all comes down to the herd mentality thingy. people ake safety in numbers and doing whatever the rest of the herd does however stupid it may be. people are trained to believe that the herd is right . people don't use their brains often enough. maybe things will change as far as sport is concerned cause here sport(S)=cricket. in my dad's time it was hockey. from a billion people we cant' find decent sports persons. heck even bahrain a land of a few thousand has better athelethes that ours here....

at an individual level it's knida hard to do anything but rant about the system. but maybe a group of people can do something. there are numerous groups of people who encourage niche sports all over bombay but they remain just that ..niche sports. god knows what we can do about any of this
