Proteas in Saharanpur

Report on the doings of the South African team, in Saharanpur to attend a wedding.

15 Comments:

  • The players were welcomed at a grand gathering at the BR Ambedkar Stadium, where the cricketers, donning tikas and traditional turbans, swung to the tunes ‘mere desh ki dharti’ and ‘vande mataram.’

    Wrong choice of songs? "Dil Pardesi ho gaya" might worked...

  • I have been to Saharanpur many many times, and there was not even a half decent hotel there. OK, my last visit was in June 2004, but if a new hotel was being built, my relatives would have told me about it.
    So where the F did they stay and how did they brushed their teeth?
    Closest place where they would have got a decent hotel would be Dehradun, and that is about 2 hrs drive.
    Wonder why they are not complaining now...

  • At least, now, the Proteas will understand what India is all about. In spite of bitching about everything, we still treat them like Gods. Lesser people would have given back in kind a long time ago.
    Everything's not about mineral water.

  • look at this they went from hyderabad to saharanpur in north and they will play in banglore.
    if schedule were like this say hyderabad then in faisalabad and then to banglore they would have cried out loudly.
    sahara people or parivar wastes money like no other business group.

  • Mayur,

    Before we start patting ourselves on the back about our hospitality, here are a few things to consider:
    - would we have accorded the same 'hospitality' to a black team, say from the Windies?
    - this 'hospitality' is being sponsored by the Sahara group. And where does their money come from? From their consumers like you and me. I'd say this money and 'hospitality' is best spent on more important things.

    I hope I'm not the only one to be disgusted by the whole thing.
