Even a controversy on push-ups

BUILDING controversies even on minor or non-issues has become a norm in our over politicised society. Especially legislatures who are sent by the masses to Parliament to do legislation in public welfare and focus their energies towards meeting multidimensional challenges faced by the country appear to be fixated more on irrelevant and trivial matters. The recent case in point is their statement of concerns on the push-ups — the in vogue celebrated style of Pakistan cricket players.
In fact there was no need for legislatures to express their wonder or caste an aspersion on newly invented style of celebration by cricket players as most of the teams, especially West Indians, introduce new styles every now and then to mark their victories. It has also been noted that whenever the West Indians come up with a novel style of celebration, they register a big win and it was witnessed in the last T-20 world cup, where their players danced to victory. In the mega event, they celebrated their every single win with unique dance performances while forgetting the pressure of next match which in fact lifted their spirit and morale so high that they finally lifted the world cup for second time by defeating some of the very strongest teams. Those who understand the sports well would also agree that apart from routine training and fitness exercises, something extra is required to lift the spirits of players in the field. Rejoicing on successes is also a human nature and for players it helps them relieve the pressure. So our legislatures must not entangle our players into any unnecessary controversy especially when they have started showing better performances in all the three formats. There is nothing negative in push-ups. Legislatures should mind their own job while leaving players to their own to earn laurels for the country.
