Cricket and Politics in Bangladesh July 18, 2015Posted by bdoza in BANGLADESH.
Bangladesh is flying on wings over his successive successes in Cricket. In the latest, BD has beaten mighty South Africa in One day international by 2-1 in the last weeks. Before this he also beat Pakistan and India in series. The cricketers become national heroes, all are house hold names, Government declared gift and honor of immense magnitude for the players, Media is filled with their praise. Even politicians, who are more like hear to the praise of themselves, are praising the cricketers. Cricketers become symbol of unity for the nation.
This is in contrast to the party and politics in Bangladesh. Now the politics is the most hated subject,though people sometimes compel to discuss it; parties are instrument of sucking the poor in particular and the people in general; and politicians are the most corrupt section of the society.
People are comparing the two and hoping that one day our politics will be as beautiful and as pure as our cricket.
