Over-hyped or not?


If people are to be believed:
A Rs. 250/- ticket being sold at Rs. 12,000/-;
Rs. 17,00,000/- for a 10-sec advertisement;
One way ticket Mum-Chd: Wed Morning Rs 15,000;
India's richest people struggling to make it through;
Match territory declared no-fly zone;
Thunderstorm warning makes people scare more than Tsunami;
Offices have changed timings;
Citizens feel curfewed in iron-clad security;
Productivity might reduce by 70%;
(P.S. It's the final day of financial year)
PMs of two deadliest neighbors expected to be together;

Oh no! It's NOT just a cricket match.
As ToI quotes, "this is bigger than a match of cricket, it's of mammoth proportions". There is no thin line between victory and Defeat - there lies separation has Kashmir, three ruthless wars and tons of unspoken words...

P.P.S.: As per Business Standard, "Chandigarh's Industrial and Tourism Corporation has a special menu of mocktails named Dazzling Yorker, LBW, Captain’s Cooler, Googly and Cover Drive. The snacks include Chicken Short Leg, Fish Third Umpire and Prawns Short Leg. There is also a Chicken Caught and Bowled. People are hoping that chicken does not get replaced by names of cricketers when the match finally begins tomorrow."

P.P.P.S.: Biggest worry is Punjabi's everywhere - I mean, both the teams. :D

agreed there is so much hype...i guess we all need something to tlak abut and the old rivalry between the two countries just spices things up..

though Pak will today...and lankans would take the Cup home.

Take care
