Easy questions & tough answers

Children have this knack of asking simple unanswerable questions. I was at my uncle's house last weekend and was watching the India - Sri Lanka match with my seven year old cousin. He has recently developed a keen interest in cricket and like most kids of his age has a barrage of questions.

Cousin : How do they select the captain of the team ?
Me : The best player in the team gets selected to be the captain.
Cousin : So is Rahul Dravid the best player in the Indian team ?
Me : Yeah, you could say that.
Cousin : Then, was Saurav Ganguly the best player in the team before ?
Me : -------------- (Silence)

  • Do tell your cousin, that even the best of people are allowed to have bad days.Its alright to fall, only then can you get up again, and taller.

    Saurav Ganguly is running a bad spate,but he has been the most successful captain of Indian cricket.A lot of young crickters have bloomed under him and he brought the fighting spirit and attitude into the team.

    If he is not in the team today, its because he has made some mistakes, and its only human to do that..
