India happening…

…if not shining. I remember this post that veenven had made sometime ago about how Indian corporates were standing up against FIIs fulminations about corruption in India. Right now, I am watching Sania Mirza play Jelena Jankovic in the Dubai Open quarters. There are about 5000 or so Indians in the crowd, the whole bloody stadium is taken, and all you can hear are guttural screams, chants of Sania-Sania, and all sorts of banners in her support. You would have thought you were right in the heart of India.

A completely different context of course, but the point still is the same – Making the Indian presence felt. Loud and clear. I have to wonder if Dubai’s ever seen anything like this. If I were a Sheikh, I would be worried 🙂
