The hysteria doesn't get any bigger than this

A Chandigarh-based woman screaming on a Hindi television channel that she is ready to give away a kidney for a ticket; Indian Railways running a special train to Mohali; some 30-plus private jets of the rich and the high-heeled seeking permission to land in the city; SMSes and social networking sites buzzing with Mohali gossip; prayers and religious ceremonies across India -- all this frenzy to ensure that 11 Indian cricketers beat traditional rivals Pakistan on Wednesday to book their place in the final of the cricket World Cup 2011

But with
diplomacy getting mixed with cricket, a deadly cocktail has been brewed in Mohali. This is not merely the cricket fever, it is a mass hysteria that the nation is passing through :)
