I usually start from the back page of newspaper after briefly scanning frontpage headlines. The frontpage stories are often predictable, specially if you’ve seen late night news on the TV. More so now since the World Cup is on in right earnest.
Not the back page. The back page smells of an unknown quest like the cleavage of a woman.
Today was no different, and so when I spread out the back page of The Telegraph this morning, my eyes stuck at the left-most column. There lay a maze of football plans of different playing teams, 8 of them. Brazil’s was there, so was Italy’s and Germany’s and host of others.
At the bottom was India’s. India’s? Must be a joke. India haven’t started dreaming yet to play in the finals. But yes, India does have a plan after all. The great Indian plan continues to be to ‘stay at home and watch the others on TV’! At least something.
