INDIA lost but INDIA won

– Khan Tahir

On the evening of June 9, 2024, it was hard to find a household that wasn’t torn between politics and sports. This was the day when Narendra Modi was set to take the oath as Prime Minister for the third time, and at almost the same time, a T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan was scheduled.

Everyone in India wanted to know who would become a minister, while also wanting to know which team would win the match. I.N.D.I.A coalition couldn’t form a government, but INDIA managed to win against Pakistan by a narrow margin.

Just like how children are given something sweet after taking bitter medicine, perhaps for similar reasons, when Narendra Modi was taking the oath for the third time, the thrilling India-Pakistan match was also happening concurrently.

People who hated the name I.N.D.I.A a few days ago, those who were praying for I.N.D.I.A’s defeat, were now praying for INDIA’s victory against Pakistan. The results of the Lok Sabha elections and the India-Pakistan match taught one thing: every drop makes an ocean. No party should underestimate 12 or 16 votes; these numbers can be crucial in forming a government. Similarly, no missed catch or a lucky six should be taken lightly; it can win or lose the match.
