Kolkata: In the age of social media you get the license to post almost anything under the Sun even if it’s derogatory and smacks of insulting even the greatest of achievers.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli may have disappointed again getting dismissed cheaply on the first day of the Leeds Test against England, but being Indians, is it acceptable that we slam him sarcastically? Yes, Jimmy Anderson turned out to be his nemesis one more time but does the dynamic personality deserve to be subjected to such humiliation? To make matters worse, his team were decimated for only 78 in their first innings, 9th lowest total registered by India in Test cricket. Disappointing indeed, but!
At a time, when he needs that fillip to come back hard, the incriminating posts and comments on social media are highly condemnable.
Is this the way we treat our heroes? How the hell (sorry for being lethal) do we set aside the many a stupendous performance of the man in the past? You fail to fathom the logic behind such immature acts that show our nation in bad light.
It’s easy to reach out to the world with just a push of the keyboard, but guys, succeeding under trying conditions is no cakewalk. He is trying, trying hard but unfortunately, the results are not in his favour. But poking fun at such a great cricketer belies the background you hail from.
Can you please stop this and set an example of being exceptions? Kohli is our pride, instead of trying to make a joke out of him, shower him with encouraging words so that he feels at home.
But thank you for sparing his wife Anushka Sharma the ordeal this time! But back him because he is still indispensable, mark our words!
Kohli wouldn’t be bothered for sure because he has been at the receiving end in the past too, but deep down, he must be wondering about the price one has to pay at times for being the King! Sad!
