India Passion League

For two months now, the biggest film industry in the world will not release any big-budget movie, the biggest soap-operas followed religiously in millions of middle-class households will run only re-runs during the prime time, productivity in offices, grades in schools and friction between government and opposition will reduce drastically; for two months now, nobody will count the number of tigers left in the wild, the number of fake godmen arrested in sex rackets, the number of jawans killed on the border; for two months now, this biggest democracy, number 134 on the UNDP Human Development Index and second most populous country on planet earth will live eat talk walk a sport that generates a collective euphoric amnesia like no other sport has ever done in the history of sport.

The IPL has just begun.
