People who do not know anything about cricket, can just spend sometime online and get enough information to involve in discussions on IPL. Internet has given birth to many such souls. Gone were the days when information was available from only few sources. In the past when the knowledgeable people spoke others listened to them; but now even when a knowledgeable person speaks, another person who has just a pinch of information on the same subject also joins the conversation as if he knows the subject in totality.
Everybody these days want to express themselves but nobody wants to listen to others. Communication is an art that will be effective only if a person listens to understand the other person's views and then answers that. But today no one bothers to know what the other person is trying to communicate; everybody just want to talk.
Facebook and Twitter are two places where everyone just posts something thinking that the whole world will agree with them. Every writer who picks up a pen and paper thinks that he is Shakespeare and tries to force his writings on others.
On 11th April 2012, a Big earthquake hit the shores of Sumatra and the aftershocks were felt in Chennai also. I was talking with a colleague of mine when I saw the table moving. More than anything Twitter and Facebook were the most affected places because of the earthquake. Till the earthquake news spread around, everybody were talking as if they knew everything about cricket.. Now everyone are discussing about the intricate details about earthquakes and tsunamis. If Google and wikipedia sites go down for a week, the world will be more calmer.
Finally just when the Tsunami was about to Hit the chennai shores, our one and only Gabtun jumped into the scene. If he had jumped a little more, the sea would have dried up.
