just like...

Good ol' days when...
a India vs Pakistan match meant feverish excitement and air thick with anticipation. The whole country could not think/talk/eat/drink/sleep anything else. Newspaper columns, TV panel shows, drawing room discussions - it was everywhere and made an expert out of everyone. It replaced the 'em movie chusav recent ga?' as the first go-to phrase after the obligatory hello, in those awkward breaking-the-ice conversations.

After a long time, it seems like the buzz is back...
It's the Indo-Pak World Cup semifinal baby!

One also hopes that, after the match we manage to retain some semblance of dignity and restrain should the result be unpalatable.

scrape through, tie wow, shock loss and thrill win

They are saying, England doesn't deal in dull matches. That, if you have tickets for an England match, you will get your money's worth. And that they are single handedly making these early stages of world cup heart-stoppingly exciting.

Right no?!

Fiery passion also allows for infinite patience.
It's the easiest way to judge how much you love doing something, no?!
