football fever

Football fever is the flavour of the season. With the World Cup going on, it seems, momentarily, that football has taken over from cricket as the sport du jour.

At the beach, these young chaps are enjoying an evening match. Have seen a lot of folks wearing numbered jerseys showing support for their preferred country - brazil seems to be the fave.

Even though India is not in the WC, the papers have been full of WC info 2 weeks leading up. Football is played a lot in the eastern part of India, like Bengal, Assam and the North Eastern States.

India does have their own football star, Baichung Bhutia, who plays for some team in England. Looks like there is hope for football in India yet.
