India has won. Fellow countrymen and women are all out on the streets. High-fiving through cars, bikes and even autos. Autos which have dozens of people in them each. Cars which had probably never used their sun roofs before. I saw a family distributing slices of cake to cars passing by. Smiling policemen only telling people to not swing from their cars’ windows. Tiny kids not understanding what is happening but participating in the fun.
Sachin had the best smile. The Vande Mataram chant was unmatchable. And the tears. Wow.
Feels good to have been witness to such history. And on an unrelated note, I will miss seeing Gauti in the Delhi jersey later this month.

Congratulations to all on a well deserved win. 🙂
Yippppeeeeee!!! Kolkata saw similar scenes too – saw a midnight feast of chicken and rice happening nearby; and all the gulals left over from Holi didn't go to waste for sure!Don't worry, Gauti will be well supported by the purple gold brigade of KKR.
Jas,:DSubhadip,:) It's been great to see pictures from all cities looking exactly the same. And Gauti ka khayaal rakhna!
