    Now this was funny!
    Fucking tharoor, i was real surprised when someone told me he’d become a politician, even more when that someone mentioned twitter.

    you’ll have to add more categories to your tweet-up characters.

    Mid-life-crisis-facing-gentleman who might be somewhat evangelist-ical.

    See, this is what i need after a day of work.

    good job.

    Great build up to an excellent last panel/page. Couldn’t have guessed a father/son conversation would lead to this – of course, sponsored by @shashitharoor.
    And I am so proud to be @skruyu’s fraand :D Can see some other familiar faces too

    You mean if Shashi Tharoor opens a Facebook profile, and suddenly middle-age India wants to poke each other and take personality quizzes? OMGs

    While I don’t feel any great regrets about the ICL, I do think it severd a valuable purpose in pushing the powers that be to take some useful reforms seriously.Those reforms still have a long way to run though. Until the bulk of players, not just the internationals are able to play for good money week in week out, there will be profits to be had from poaching them for a league and having more regular games.I daresay we haven’t seen the last such venture either. The limit of four international players per side in the IPL is keeping a lot of talented players out of the loop. The next ICL probably won’t be Indian, is all.
