Cricketers plan to build biggest pillar of success with continuous failures
One will rarely come across anyone who has not heard the old adage "failure is the pillar of success".
But unlike everyone, the national cricketers of Chapasthan, known as the Bobcats, are aiming to materialise this saying in their practical lives.
They have decided, intentionally, to fail time and again.
Here arises a question: If failure is really the pillar of success, then how many failures does it take to make a pillar? Through their initiative, the Bobcats will eventually be able to answer that very question.
In the meantime, rumours suggest that as the project aims to make the biggest pillar of success ever, the players need many, probably innumerable failures.
As part of the project, Chapasthan has been failing in cricket ever since it got ICC's recognition. The year 2021 has been a blessing for the sports team, as it experienced the highest number of failures in T20 cricket.
"We can't even think of being luckier than this. We lost so many games this year. And you know what? These failures are forming a strong foundation for the pillar of our future," said the team captain, whose face was so full of emotions that onlookers could not tell whether he was smiling or weeping.
When asked about the probable inauguration date of the long-awaited "pillar of success", he said, "We are more concerned about amassing enough failures at the moment. You will see the pillar very soon, maybe within 2050."
According to the players, success seems to be just a matter of time now, as other than Chapasthan, no team has faced so many failures in a calendar year. So, naturally, no team will enjoy the taste of success more than the country.
"Fans have been fuming about our continuous failures, but they don't know about the project, which is almost 50 percent completed. The more we fail, the better we learn, and ultimately, the closer we get to our success," said another Bobcat, who runs a side-hustle of selling mirrors.
Asrar Ali Khan, a former cricket fanatic, who now watches ha-du-du, said, "What does this project mean? Will we ever even see this during our lifetime?"
He then posed another question: "If we really care about our failures, why did we make Merepoor Cricket Ground, which helps us win games instead of losing?"
