The second wave of the pandemic has wreaked havoc throughout the country. And yet, we continue to allow the Indian Premier League to go on. It makes no sense that a celebration of sport is going on in Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi minutes away from the largest COVID hospital in Delhi, where people are dying due to lack of beds, oxygen and drugs. Even as ordinary citizens are shelling out lakhs to procure essential items, cricketers are getting awarded the same amount for "performances' on the cricket field. The final of this tournament is in end May at a stadium just kilometres away from an Ahmedabad hospital where, just last month, over a hundred ambulances were in queue to get patients to the casualty. This is an abomination of unprecedented proportion. This becomes even more horrifying as "patriotic" Indian celebrities refuse to speak up on the state of affairs in their own country. The IPL must stop now, not just as a symbolic gesture of respect for our dead, but also so that important resources can be allocated to those who need them the most- the ordinary men and women of our country.
