Yuvraj's emotional return a reassurance

Abhishek Mukherjee

Yuvraj Singh made his international comeback in Chennai amid a cheering crowd happy to see him back. Ajaz Ashraf, writing in The Hindu, rationalises the emotional reception, saying Yuvraj was a reassurance to people that the power of man can sometimes defeat life's irrationalities.

Our cheering is also a resounding encouragement to Yuvraj to recover his old, earlier self. We know in our hearts that only then can the absurdities of existence be said to have been truly overcome and the randomness of life rendered irrelevant. A less-than-average comeback would imply that the irrational had extracted an exorbitant price even though it spared his life.
