Why we should learn being responsible from Virat Kohli
Virat is fulfilling all the promises he made to Anushka in that Manyavar ad. Learn from him
Virat Kohli is always a step ahead of others. He became the fastest to 10,000 and then he took the right step and got himself a retirement plan. One with the latest acche din features. He is a family man after all. He is learning to take responsibilities.
But he needs a bit of fine tuning in his planning. He can draw inspiration from stalwarts who have shown us the way in the past. From now on we will only watch when Virat and his team hits a boundary or bowls out those outsiders. We can listen to our Maan Ki Baat the rest of the match. Much more fulfilling I tell you.
He has started off well but he has to make his stand clear. Give these people a destination out of India. We have explored Pakistan. It's time for Bangladesh now. #GoToBangladesh should be up and trending in a few hours. Virat is known for his temper but he needs to channelise it better. We all know how good he is on the field. Combine the two and he can throw mics at anyone who dares question the acche din he has brought to Indian cricket and made us all proud. He can also come up with a strict policy of who will be let inside the arena. "You like Virat?" A prompt yes within 0.0015 seconds and you are in, a delay and you earn a ticket to Bangladesh. Indians should be made to leave the stadium if the other team has conspired to try and defeat us. They can again come in once we have either neutralised the threat or we have come up with how they have conspired against us. We have learnt how to turn a 1996 Eden kind of event in our favour now.
Cricket is more than a sport now, it should be run like a business — like politics in India. It's profitable, long-term investments are solid now and the super news there are no risks involved. All you need to know is the time when you have to shift from B to C or when you blame it on T or Cp or A/D. (They are all working for the aam aadmi's better future.)
If Virat is bringing back the #GoTo trend it's going to be a thriller. India was the place to be when a stalwart tweeted, "Shah Rukh Khan lives in India, but his heart is in Pakistan. His films make crores here but he finds India intolerant." But the naive Indians failed to understand his intent. He had to take down the tweet.
