Victimhood is the new Sunrise industry. In truth, it’s been around for as long as politics has been; but of late it has been demonstrating that there are no limits to the branches it can encompass. Including lengthened limbs.

Virat Kohli is just a normal being. But he has five Pandavas working for him incognito. Incomparable Valour, Overwhelming Strength, Uncompromising Values, Captivating Aesthetics, and Uncommon intelligence. No wonder his T 20 average is a double five. No other cricketer...
