Indian cricketers are multi-millionaires owing to endorsement deals and IPL contracts. However, has anyone every read that Indian cricketers did charity? Indian actors and actresses demand crores per film, and yet what have they ever done for the poor?
With over 80% of the Indian population struggling for food, why are actors and cricketers turned into heroes. One Indian cricketer is even labeled God, while it is common to see poor Indians worshiping pictures of Indian actors and actresses. Why such honor for such selfish people?
Even Indian businessmen don’t do anything for the welfare of the poor. While one Indian businessman will break the Guinness world record for the highest amount spent on his daughters wedding, he will not spend another paisa on another’s daughter.
Doing charity is common in Western countries. From Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, to even the common rich person, everyone does charity, or his/her wealth is taken in taxes to be evenly distributed. However, in India, even the average rich person is miserly and stingy. And I do not target India alone. The case is the same in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, etc.
The reason I am bringing India in the spotlight is because there are more rich people in India than other developing countries, there is more poverty in India than other developing countries, and people in India revere cricketers and filmstars more than anyone in the world.
Let’s say Pakistan, Sri Lanka, or Bangladesh had won the cricket World Cup, They would also be showered with unnecessary money by the government that should have been spent on the poor, and not one cricketer would spend one paisa on the poor. All of it would have been spent on parties, luxuries, buying new cars, and mansions and villas.
Two people, one Indian and one Pakistani, recently committed suicide. The Pakistani could not bear his team’s loss while a Tendulkar fan hung himself. (I doubt the fan knew about Tendulkar’s 40 crores that he has earned in 2011 alone). I am not sure how many others from both countries have also committed suicide without the news surfacing.
Below is the video of a Pakistani man’s suicide.
It isn’t just the fans who are crazy. While the Indian government is showering enormous amounts on cricketers in a poverty stricken country, education funds are also being raided for Indian cricketers.
Mister Yuvaraj Singh, Because of this cricket crazy fans of India you cricketers are superstars and enjoy the same adulation of movie stars. Imagine if they have the sportmanship and take the win or loose equally, you would be treated as one of the hockey players though they too played for India with whole heart. Corporate bigwigs are behind you not because of sportmanship you show, but because the crazy cricket fans of India. You are indepted to this cricket crazy fans for your life. – Suresh
Yuvraj you have lack of sportmenship thats why you talk like this after the world cup. Why u did not say it before world cup ? coz u need support from fans ???? – Nick
