Spotlight #9 - Cricket

Today's picture is a bit of a throwback to my childhood. 

Before my parents moved up north, Chennai used to be my home. 

During my recent trip there, on a random evening, I took a walk with my fam. On our way there we saw this - 

It was a small ground, but there were two separate cricket matches going on. It reminded me of when I was a kid and would do literally anything to play. 

Cricket used to play a huge part in my life when I was a kid. As I walked by this, I realized just how important it is in cities in the south, especially Chennai. People breathe it all over India, yes, but it's something else when you go down south. 

Their passion is different from the aggressiveness everywhere else. There's a sense of lightheartedness and pleasure that you can feel. People just want to play, they don't care about anything else. 

That's exactly what I see in this picture. 

 

What about you? I would love to hear what you think about this picture, and if you have any special memories. Leave a comment below!

 

Cheers :)
