Rep-you-tation

One can survive everything, nowadays, except death, and live down everything except a good reputation.” – Oscar Wilde

After watching the Indian Cricket team fare miserably in their match against Bangladesh in the ongoing ICC World Cup Cricket and then bounce back to make the highest ever total in World Cup Cricket against, minnows, Bermuda, I can’t help but wonder what reputation does to men….and teams. As Sidhu (former Indian cricketer) said in his thundering voice on NDTV, “The most difficult thing to build and the easiest thing to lose is a reputation”. Sad, but true.

Reputation is a paradox of sorts.

Sidhu should know- he came close to losing it because of his court case. For the Indian team, it should be a good wake up call
