Papaya Cricket

by Gaurav Sethi

If you look, you will find cricket everywhere. Even on a papaya.

Today morning’s purchase bore fruit. They don’t call it Disco Papaya for nothing. Took my newspaper-wrapped papaya and sat it on the kitchen counter. Then I saw Pradeep Magazine’s mug. It was an article I’d missed. Hand ironed the paper, realised, I’m reading Magazine in a newspaper.

It was a serious piece not like this one. Titled, ‘Patriot Games: A curious case of origin and adoption.’ Don’t know if it was the papaya, but I digested the piece rather well.

Tomorrow I eat the papaya, I wonder what cricket seeds will be sown in me.

Sometimes these newspaper based packets and covers can provide interesting information.

ROLF, Man these paper packets can only be found in SL and India I think, they provide some curious tit bits if you happen on the right ones.


Ps- Love the new BCC! Look, I hope one day you can guys can topple the BCCI and take over Indian cricket.

A case of 'Papa'ya preaching & moving your bowels all in one fell swoop!

Gaurav Sethi said...

Sure SB. Long as we don't go digging in dustbins for them :)

Gaurav Sethi said...

Cheers to that noble thought Damith.

Reckon it's a subcont thing.

Haha sraghuna!

I agree with Soul, we stumble readable articles in packets or wraps made out of newspapers.

Ya NC it's a bonus if one finds articles to one's interest.

On a more serious note, Padeep Magazine's articles are always quite digestible. If I encounter his article, I always read it first.

I loved the way you tend to bring curious angles to ordinary situations, nice NC.

AB, it's a cricket magnet thing, time's the pull is greater, you almost sniff out anything cricket, however remote.
