This is really not the genre of this comic, but I couldnt resist doing a joke on the world cup :)

For those who dont know much about India, let me give an intro. We are a country of a billion people which never qualified for the world cup.
Our favourite pastime is to do strikes to halt the whole country. You can do a strike if your cigrette went up by 1 ruppee or even if ur mom refused to give u a chocolate!

Thanks moni, but I am not doing social work. We Indians are just inherently funny.

Shiva. we actually did qualify for world cup once, but we were not allowed to play because the players didn't have boots.
The only way India can get into world cup is by hosting it....
And strikes r important forthe smooth running of democracy.

@ simi As per http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India_national_football_team
"India qualified by default for the 1950 FIFA World Cup finals as a result of the withdrawal of all of their scheduled opponents" (Thatz like winning an olympic medal bcoz you were the only one playing)

Also its says "There is a long-standing myth that India refused to play because they were not allowed to play barefoot, but according to the then Indian Captain Shailen Manna, the reality is that it was just a story to cover up the disastrous decision of the AIFF" ( Dont tell me u don't believe wikipedia :D )

About strikes cool down Simi! this is a comic and
exaggeration is birth right of webcomic writers.
