In a country like India, cricket is not just a game, it is a feeling, an emotion. Memes are made on social media that stoves are not lit in homes during the match. Even the mother who scolded me for watching TV for long does not say anything that day. Even father doesn’t scold. But it is better if the game is taken as a game. Because if it is a game then victory always comes to you, but not necessarily. Sometimes you may have to face defeat. Australia has won the World Cup 2023 trophy by defeating India. The whole country is definitely sad. But we have to leave the sadness aside and focus on the upcoming tournaments. Our cricket team is also doing the same thing. But at least three such cases have come to light in the country when people, hurt by the defeat of the cricket team, committed suicide.

A news has come from Bankura district of Bengal. Here a 23-year-old youth hanged himself after being saddened by India’s defeat in the World Cup.
