Monday 26th April...the day after Mumbai Indians lost the IPL finals
the scene in mumbai in the morning was pretty much like a funeral procession. There were people who had mustered up the strength to get traveling, but the usual energy was missing...no fights, no pushing for seats
In office too people worked like silent zombies...the depression getting to them.
Quite a contrast to Sep 2007 when Dhoni and Co got the T20 world cup home...man did the same Mumbai celebrate and how...open air bus to welcome the heroes home!!!!
If franchisee loyalty is what IPL wanted, it's engraved by leaps and bounds into the Mumbaikar after this season. people already awaiting the Champions T20 and billing it as revenge time...
For the record - by Tuesday Mumbai was back to life ..the usual way :)
