All want to be friends with Symonds

Posted by Sathyamurthy www.sathyamurthy.com on January 13, 2008

Friend: Did you hear the latest story on Harbajan / Symonds tiff?

Me: What?

Friend: Symonds says he doesn’t really worry about racial slurs. That is, if it comes from friends. If he knows you, then its ok to call him a Monkey, it appears.

Me: Is it? He is right. Without knowing a person, you can’t start calling that person by his first name. Can you?

Me: I think now there will be big queues of Indians (we are used to queing up, aren’t we?) outside Symonds’ house to become friends with him. After all, no Indian will want to miss the opportunity to know Symonds’ by his first name.
