Foot ball Fi ver

These are the times I truly miss Calcutta.....!!!! This time I would pick Brazil and England.....but for different reasons entirely.....Bangalore too is having its share of football fever but it doesn't feel as natural as in Calcutta or maybe I have grown old, which in any case I have!....I still remember way back in 1986 bhai and I would watch the late night matches beamed live from Mexico and one night during the quarterfinal half time I got scissors and cut the string of red CPM plastic flags that the 'party' fellows had hung on our apartment window in a zig zag fashion above the road and the entire string of flags fell off with a whooosh on the road.....after a while when the fellows found out and were discussing how it could have happened we got a little scared since ma and baba were travelling abroad....I still can feel the goosebumps we felt both from the excitement of the match and my anti-establishment act of cutting the string of flags...!!
