We are really sorry, Tom Moody!In a terrible setback to the opposition parties of India on the eve of Gujarat election, the international credit rating agency Moody's Investors Service , popularly known as Moody's, upgraded the rating of India after a gap of twelve long years. Along with other political leaders from opposition camp, CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury slammed the Prime Minister for improving India's credit rating. The communist leader said this was a proof of growing capitalism in India.
Now let us talk about Australian cricketer Tom Moody. Those of us who regularly followed cricket in eighties and nineties, have heard the name of this Australian cricketer. Although he played a few tests, he was a well-known one-day cricketer. But why is he being discussed here?
The Kerala-based cyber army of CPI(M) confused cricketer Moody with Moody's Investors Service. So what happened next? Poor Tom Moody was abused left and right by the communists in his Facebook wall. Extremely abusive languages were used by the Keralite comrades for upgrading India's rating. But these were totally misfired. Tom Moody had to bear the brunt of wrath of Keralite comrades.
Personally I am amused by the reaction of the comrades. Now we understand that some people get terribly annoyed if something good happens to India. However, we, the 'aam-admis' of India, feel very sorry for Tom Moody, the cricketer.
