India Wins The World Cup

India does not get many opportunities to celebrate. Patriotic fervor is a strange beast.

When else has something of similar magnitude happened?

August 15, 1947 was a day of celebration of course when this nation took birth in its modern avatar.

The triumph in the war of 1971 was decisive, unambiguous, emphatic.

The World Cup cricket win of 1983 was a remarkable coming up age victory as India was a dark horse then.

The Kargil skirmish did not have any "Mission Accomplished" moments though it too was portrayed as a great battle won.

The 2011 Cricket World Cup victory is now added to that list of historical milestones.
