    One of the better things I've read on SM. In quite a while.
     
    I am quite thick skinned. Or at least I like to think so. But these days, stories like this bring a tear to my eyes. You can add young Jaiswal's story to this list too.
    Matter of fact, my eyes are moist as I type this.
     
    Here were a bunch of boys ( many of them are under 25) who barely could make ends meet a few years ago and have humbled the greatest test side in the world in their own backyard. Their struggle is their salvation.
     
    Most of what we see on social media is a cesspool of hate and viciousness. Shamefully parodying cancel culture from the West and adding our own masala to it,  crowd shaming people for their beliefs and affiliations. Running massive disinformation campaigns against our own people of different beliefs/ political affiliations, raking up hate on perceived slights, and what not. Where everyone on social media is suddenly an expert and tends to question, aggressively at that, people who have been working in a field for decades. Most of us have indulged in this to a certain degree. Most of us are lucky that we haven't had to struggle really for the necessities in life. Made me wonder many times where we have come to as a society. Hence it is refreshing to see stuff like this on SM.
     
    Its stories like these which makes me believe in the potential that India has. And not just in cricket. BCCI may be a rife with corruption, but kudos to their program to develop talent and make people dream to make it big. There are quite a few success stories where people from lower middle class households have made it big in various industry. Mainly pharma these days! Renews my optimism in the future of India. 
     
    Maybe its us, the have it alls, who are out of touch with reality and need to pontificate on the internet to validate our existence. The ones not so lucky are trying and moving ahead on the social ladder as they should! 
     
    Just a random incoherent rant.

    After getting close to parity on first innings I had no doubt India would avoid defeat, but thought maybe a draw with a bit of help from the weather. But for India to win at the Gabba against that attack was fantastic. I won’t mention the injuries etc as clearly that would be disrespectful to all the players on the tour to call some of them “India A” effectively. A great achievement for all involved and along with the England win gave me a bit of cheer in cold, locked down UK
