Compared to the scenario just a few years ago, there is a lot of debate around feminism today. It is unfortunate that this conversation was sparked by several stories of atrocities and injustice towards women. Recently, Vogue’s #MyChoice video directed by Homi Adajania and starring Deepika Padukone with several other women went viral, and everything from its content to its intent was dissected.

So when the 11 demigods of Indian cricket (the God has of course retired) came to the Sydney Cricket Ground for the semi final against Australia after a dream run in the World Cup, prayers and hopes had already reached a fever pitch.
This fever turned into a frenzy as India allowed Australia to score 328 and then folded at 233, losing by 95 runs. Add to that the disappointing performances by players like Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina, and Indians on social media turned into a swarm of buzzing bees. Well, that’s what this week’s Buzzing Blogosphere is all about – The India vs Australia World Cup semi final.

We are the defending World champions in cricket. The whole nation is saying that we won’t give the World Cup back this time around, because we haven’t had enough of it.
