Mukul Kesavan’s nice piece on the India-Pakistan semi-final. (Across the border, do they call it a Pakistan-India match?)

I am not as excited for the match as those around me. Still, I plan to watch it. And I sure won’t play spoilsport for those who are truly excited and looking forward to the match — for the same reason that I don’t drive around town telling people their god doesn’t exist; for the same reason I don’t tell a child what an idiot he is to be excited by my keys; for the same reason I don’t judge those camping outside stores for a new gadget.

Because being analytical has never lead to moments of happiness.

Enjoy the match.
