Mr Panicker (who, it seems-delightfully- is blogging regularly again) puts forth precisely yet eloquently something one feels terribly strongly about.

'We lost religion and found sport,' The Telegraph's columnist Mihir Bose once wrote. And hatred seems, unfortunately, to be the corollary of religion, everywhere, throughout time.
The religions themselves do not preach hatred; our latest religion, sport, certainly does not. Yet we subvert those religions, and now sport, to our own purposes; we invest it with intolerance and bigotry and hatred.

…and also reacts thusly about someone who has been quick to gleefully write off team India.
