  1. this is beyond Kolkata now, talk bout Lok Sabha( cud it get any worse).Rather than staging protests for Ganguly, we shud expend our energy on making sure this doesnt happen to Sachin or Dravid now. We need to empower the selection committee and give them full autonomy just like supreme court judges(they cant b influenced). Moreover, we need to institutionalize the selection procedure so that only credible people become a member of the selection committee.
