I’m grateful for the Indian women’s cricket team (TGP Musing 12.5)

Standard

The Gratitude Project – Musing 12.5

For paving the way…

For fighting the good fight with all thy might…

For helping shift the cultural paradigm in the subcontinent and elsewhere ever closer towards true gender equality…

Indeed, in the midst of patriarchy’s global and let’s face it, decidedly small-handed, last stand…

I am grateful for the formidable fighters of the Indian women’s cricket team that grace us with their great skill and athleticism in romping through to the final of the World Cup.

Hail the subcontinent’s great warriors as they have taken down, not one, not two, but three favorites en route to a thrilling journey to the final.

England. New Zealand. The mighty Aussies even.

All fell to the chaotic grace and mad brilliance that is my new favorite team of all time.

Win or lose this final, (and on behalf of my warrior daughter who at 16 months shows the raw athleticism of an Olympic decathlete) thank you, thank you, and a million times forever more, thank you…
