It is pity that some people are still haunted by our past slavery.
Everything is looked at from that angle! Inst it time for us to forget those times and think in terms of equality?
What is wrong with mutually appreciating and adopting things which can be of good to us?
What is wrong in playing cricket if we like the game? Shud we stop using railways or burn our constitution or stop learning english or stop using wet closet in our latrines? Drop modern medicine, science and technology? They all came from west!

Because of the money involved in it.Almost all children ,even in rural areas have forgotten our own game n have started playing cricket.Most of them r dreaming of making cricket their career to earn a decent living.
