Deals in CAT/ cricket

Here to stay?


WHETHER IT is cricket or CAT, nothing seems to be beyond rigging or fixing. Deals seem to have become an accepted part of cricket and now India's most prestigious management entrance exam seems to have fallen prey to this evil. In today's world where money is the only language understood, its impact on the morals of society is felt. The motto of the people, who go to any extent to earn quick money, is simple - money above everything else. As a result, neither a prestigious entrance exam nor a prestigious game seems to have been spared. A player accused of trying to buy himself a place in the domestic squad and a few-I-want-to-get-rich-overnight types trying to sell papers to an equally desperate set of students: what does this indicate? That deals are now an accepted norm probably? Who is to blame - authorities, players or the tricksters? Or is it the desperate students or the system itself? Whoever it is, one thing is for certain - deals may become an accepted norm in society unless there is a collective effort on the part of the people, authorities and the law.
