as i have already said, i am not an expert on these issues and these are only some random thoughts that i noted down...so i cannot answer all the important questions that you have raised...but yes...definitely, national games are also driven to a frenzy with jingoistic overtones....that also reasserts identities....but what is new in india is that corporates are being able to manufacture such identities from nowhere....that is what which is baffling me....secondly, sports should be seen as sports....do we go into a mass frenzy when somebody writes an internationally acclaimed book or becomes a great scientist...we honour those persons but do not break into a mass frenzy.....who am i to say how one should celebrate....my only submission is that let us be critical about these celebrations.....
