    The Easter another God arose

    The Easter another God arose

    It was Easter, the day Catholics the world over celebrated their messiah who came back to life after being crucified on the cross.


    March 27th was Easter Sunday and Virat Kohli, who has been crucified for his brashness, cockiness, his actress ex-girlfriend among many other things, rose again. It wasnít the first time that he had risen to the occasion, nor the first time he had taken his team across the finish line with a calm head. Itís funny how Indian cricketís angry young man is counted upon to steer the team to victory with a calm head. The innings he played on Sunday for some reason elicited more than the usual responses. From Brian Lara, Kumar Sangakkara and Sachin Tendulkar, three of the finest proponents of the modern game, praise was effusive and unrestrained.

    Yeah, I am an atheist and you may very well be correct about how inappropriate the article is. I am more offended though by the hyperbole and how crass and lazy the writing is.

    As said could do a detailed response to the article but won't,people don't want religious talk here.
    So as said it effects peoples sensibilities,many faiths hold Jesus in their faith at a particular level,and would expect not only christians are offended by it.

    Article appears to be longer than Kohli's innings.

    Including the wonderful clinche filled passage below. I will stop bashing it after this post but the fact that it is the top and newest article on CW's Facebook is disappointing and doesn't reflect well on the site. Not for me to make any suggestions to James but does anyone read these articles before they go up?

    "In 1998, a 25 year old Tendulkar laid siege to the hearts of Indians when he single-handedly took on the Australians. Steve Waugh would go on to say that they lost to one man, not to India. Steven Smith said more or less the same thing on Kohli’s herculean effort. Statistically, Virat Kohli is catching up with Sachin Tendulkar. While Tendulkar danced to a tune of his own, Kohli is standing on the shoulders of giants and looks to outdo them.

    For an entire generation that grew up with Tendulkar and equated meaning in their lives to his exploits on the field and mourned when he bid adieu to the game, never thought that his equal existed. Now they are being forced to reconsider."

    "When Sachin Tendulkar retired, it was thought the likes of him would never grace cricket again. And whether you believe in the resurrection or not, if you watched Virat Kohli single handedly going up against the Australians and emerging the victor, it was like the resurrection of another innings played by another God.

    It looks like the land of a million Gods has found place for another one."


    Really?!

    Pawan is obviously overly excited about Kohli's innings and has gone OTT with his prose. But this just means that the reader is not supposed to take the article overly seriously like some supercilious git. Ironic coming from me I know, but there you go.

    Quit hiding Pawan.
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    It reads like a review of a World Cup Final, and therein lies its problem.

    Don't think young India idolizes anyone anymore in the 'Sachin' way. Lazy writing.
