ముందుమాట

ఇంతకుముందు జయప్రకాశ్ నారాయణ లాంటి వ్యక్తులు సొంతపార్టీ స్థాపించి పూర్తిగా సంస్కరణల భారతావనిని తీసుకొస్తామని చెప్పి మోడీలాంటివారితో జట్టుకట్టడానికి ఒక వాదన/ నానుడి 2014 సాధారణ ఎన్నికల వాతావరణంలో వుండేది.

అది ఏంటంటే… చదువుకున్నవాడు ఎవడూ కూడా కాంగ్రెస్ పార్టీకి ఓటు వెయ్యడు. చదువులేనివాళ్లు, పాకిస్తానీ ఏజెంట్లు మాత్రమే కాంగ్రెస్ ని సమర్ధిస్తారు. మరి బీజేపీకి ఎవడు వేస్తాడు? బాగా చదువుకున్నవాడు, డబ్బులు ఆశించనివాడు, నిజమైన అభివృద్ధిని కాంక్షించేవాడు.

నేనిప్పుడు అనేదేమిటంటే… కాంగ్రెస్ స్థాపించిన చదువుల ఫ్యాక్టరీనా? ఆరెస్సెస్ ఊహల ఫ్యాక్టరీనా?

అవసరమైన విషయాలని చూస్తే ఎవరికి ఓటు వేయాలనేది ఖచ్చితంగా తెలిసిపోతుంది. ఎవరికి అనేది వారి వారి  ఇష్టం మీద ఆధారపడుతుంది. కాని నిర్ణయాత్మకమైన ఓటు ఇదీ అని ఎలా తెలుస్తుంది?

ఉదాహరణకి కొన్ని విషయాలని చూస్తే…

కాంగ్రెస్ అనేది అవినీతికరమైన పార్టీ. నీతిబాహ్యమైనది అని 2014 వరకూ చంద్రబాబునాయుడులాంటి అసాధారణ మేధాసంపత్తి, చాకచక్యం, సంపద సృష్టించే వ్యక్తులనబడ్డవాళ్లు (చంద్రబాబునాయుడు సోషల్ మీడియా అభిమానులు) మాట్లాడారు. అప్పుడు ఏ కాంగ్రెస్ అయితే అంటరానిది, మాట్లాడటానికి అర్హతలేనిది, ఇంకా చెప్పాలంటే పనికిమాలినది అయ్యిందో, ఇప్పుడు అదే కాంగ్రెస్ మనకి ఫెడరల్ స్ఫూర్తిని, రాజ్యాంగాన్ని కాపాడేది, అలాగే అభివృధ్ధిని అందించే పార్టీ అయ్యింది. ఎలా మారింది ఒక్క అయిదు సంవత్సరాలలో? అరవై సంవత్సరాలు ఏమీ చేయలేదని మాట్లాడినవాళ్లే ఈ అయిదు సంవత్సరాలలో ఏం చూశారు?

పోటీ మొత్తం చంద్రబాబునాయుడుకి, జగన్ కి వున్నట్టే కనిపిస్తుంది. 2014 మాదిరి అయితే వీళ్లిద్దరే పోటీపడితే ఖచ్చితత్త్వం కనిపించుండేది.

చాలా సర్వేలు టీవీ మార్కెట్టులో కనిపించాయి, ఇంకా కనిపించొచ్చు. ఎన్ టీవీ 2014లో సరిగ్గా ఉగాది ముందురోజు సర్వే అని చెప్పి చాలా నియోజకవర్గాలలో జగన్ హవా కనిపిస్తోందనీ, చంద్రబాబునాయుడు చాప చుట్టేసినట్టేనని చెప్పింది. అది కొందరు నమ్మారు కూడా.

Can India make its dream run count against South Africa on bouncy tracks

For nearly the past two and more years, regarding India dominating many teams significantly, there’s been a widespread acceptance of what we call ”majority view” – a view agreed to upon with less doubt.

The view has been that India has catapulted its position as a senior test cricket playing nation into a side that can command respect even from the toughest opposition ranks on account of its attainability of wins both in home and away competitions. The majority is Indian cricket’s patrons, majority being in the category of ”crowd” who don’t know who Curtly Ambrose and Waqar Younis are and what they did to their respective teams. The doubt is for lesser known ”viewer” who doesn’t take match conditions slightly, leave alone itinerary and physics of cricket, swing and seam.

We shall get to where it takes. Notwithstanding anything opined here.

So, where has the supposed script of the ”Indian fan” – eagerly waiting for wishing Indian world cup participating army – abysmally gone wrong? Has his table of assumptions turned around?

Update on March 14, 2019

The home-series debacle 2-3 in New Delhi the other night at the hands of a second rated team surely is hurting fan boys infected with media escalated ”Indian juggernaut” syndrome, while on a positive note Indian selectors will leave no stone unturned to field the most eligible side after 1983. On rank turners back in 2011, Indian job was to see off sub continental attacks in Mohali and Mumbai, after initial hiccups – at Bangalore against England and at Nagpur against South Africa – enraged the think tank to revise its targets under the captaincy of Dhoni. March 4, 2008, the day on which the defending champions of 2007 Caribbean world cup were given the taste of their own medicine in their own backyard, where until 2007-2008 commonwealth bank tri-series featuring India, Australia, and Srilanka, Australians under Punter and Gilchrist appeared too much for any side on all conditions sans sub-continental cricket frenzy crowd, is remarkable in the context of gripping contests. Two day before, Sachin and Praveen Kumar guided India to safety in the first of best of three finals at SCG.

If India has to make its mark before taking on Proteas on June 5, the coach, the captain, and all the supporting staff have to return to those dates. It’s irony that captain’s remarks on the participation of Indian world cup camp in the domestic club cricket came up at a wrong time signalling there’s no room for introspection. Anil Kumble’s remarks against the backdrop of appalling display of character in the 2017 Champions Trophy final and his decision to retreat coaching camp must resurface at the selector’s meeting to ward off complacency, and more than anything, the capacity-building factor which is so crucial in a long-stretched tournament like world cup.

Before an average Indian cricket buff thinks it fit to deem India as the clear favourites at the ensuing world cup event, the first since 1992 edition with round robin league where in each play once before meeting again in semi finals, ScoopLense recommends him to have following points, ten in total, in mind.

Even before the same fan glosses over following ten points, he is advised to not get carried away by seeing this show off article on India Today that only conveys one thing – that Australian legendary players of previous era are daunted very much by the possible onslaught of Virat Kohli, and conforms to the majority view of present generation that doesn’t care for analysis rather cares for analytics.

Here’re those ten points.

SECOND SEMIFINAL AT MOHALI 1996 WILLS WORLD CUP (D/N) March 14, 1996

Australia beat West Indies at Punjab Cricket Association stadium in Mohali on March 14, 1996, after being 15/4 inside the first 10 overs – the period of relaxation for batting teams exposed by Mark Greatbatch in 1992 world cup, which was later on exploited by Sachin Tendulkar starting Napier ODI in 1994.

India the favourites at the World Cup in England! CC: Australia and Pakistan

Congratulations, the crusader M S Dhoni, and the vibrant Virat, the navigator, for the repeat of 2009 performance against a side that has started the series as under dog!

India under Dhoni could have sealed the fate of Australians under Clarke at SCG on the night of 26th March, but things went strangely as Clarke won the toss and opted to bat on a batsman-friendly track. The pace trio of Mohit Sharma, Mohammed Shami, and Bhuvaneswar Kumar couldn’t unsettle the ravaging openers inside first two overs – who were not as significant as the deadliest opening pairs in Adam Gilchrist and Mathew Hayden, Desmond Haynes and Phil Simmons, and Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly – and while one got out to a short pitched delivery, Steve Smith and Finch set things right for the hosts who already came out of wobbles of pace bowling from Wahab Riaz in the quarter final at Adelaide Oval. Now, that is history.

What happened to Mitchell Johnson late in the innings when he smashed 27 off just 9 deliveries is beyond history textbooks of cricketing logic. Now, with the resurgent Indian mindset – don’t belittle the word resurgent – and an experienced Mahendra Singh Dhoni with trophies under his kitty, it’s a case of who’s facing India the probable finalist on July 14, 2019. So, where has team improved under the influence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his successor Virat Kohli?

Fielding, nay.

Bowling, nay.

Batting, nay.

Attitude, aye!
