Yes, I agree this is as big as the Ashes. Uttely dissapointed that India have lost to England 2-1. Could easily have ended up 3-1 - Thanks to Eng for batting out a draw. Now, the Indian fans have been very generous in their support for Eng. What they need to do is to bottle up some water from the Ganges and send it to England along with the trophy. Call the contest 'THE GANGES'. Let India tour England in 2014 with the intent to bring the Ganges back. It puts a context to the series.

Ashes are nothing. It's played in conditions not-alien to both teams. But India is very very different than that.
