I, for one, am happy India won -- but that does not blind me to the fact that for large swathes of the game, my team played shite. And judging admittedly on anecdotal evidence, I am not the only one who felt that way.
As a Keralite, and a Hindu who has visited the temple on a few occasions, my reaction to this article would be bewildered amusement.But as a journalist and editor, my reaction is far more visceral. I have many problems with this piece - beginning with the fictions, the distortions and the exaggerations. Only some of them are cataloged above; all of them are examples of journalism so shockingly inept that they can be disproved given a functioning internet connection and a few minutes of time.
