The whole nation went into celebration mode last night. One began wondering aloud if it was destined to be a 7-0 series win and if such a win has ever been recorded by any team against any opponent in a 7 game ODI series. I am sure the statisticians must have spent the night researching historical statistics. The bookies must be calculating what odds to offer on such an outcome.
The whole nation was aghast today morning when they got to know of the Mumbai terror attacks and that brought an abrupt end to the celebrations of last night.
While we would like to celebrate & felicitate Dhoni's boys for a job well done, we must stop and shed a few tears for those who met an untimely death at the hands of a band of misguided youths calling themslves the "Deccan Mujaihideen".
It is about time someone told these guys that no houris await them in heaven after their martyrdom. What awaits them in an unglorious end on the other side of the barrel of highly motivated police and armymen who would ensure no terrorist escapes alive.
That the English team has called off their tour in these circumstances is totally understandable.
