On Friday we had a seminar about waste segregation in Bangalore Cricket stadium. The whole office staff went there to support our chief in holding her presentation and to prepare everything for the event. Cricket in India is even more popular than football in Germany. In Bangalore cricket is all-embracing: if there is a match ongoing even clubs would show it on screens, on Sunday strolls through the parks you’d find families playing cricket with their children, fan articles are sold on every corner… You simply can’t find anyone who doesn’t like it. If there’s a match in town people go crazy about it and the whole city is in a state of excitement. A colleague from the German Team kindly gave me a short Cricket briefing, and people always are absolutely impressed when I talk about the ‚batsmen‘ as if I’d would know what I am talking about… ^^
Anyhow: we went to the stadium and my colleagues got crazy because we could walk down to the ground and watch the Bangalore Cricket Team having their training! Bangalore is very high in the national India League and many players are part of an international Team as well, so even I got excited about it 🙂 Some of the players even came along the side so we could take pictures with them and catch some autographs.
