Pitchers and catchers are reporting to Spring Training. Baseball is in the air, almost. And I am finding that I am even less excited about it than I was last year. I'm not sure why.
Perhaps it's merely that there is only so much room in my mind for extra-curriculars, and that real estate is fully occupied by learning Hindi and watching Hindi films. Or maybe it's that there's just limited excitement in the prospect of another bloated, old Yankees team (one that will win a lot of games, but they won't be pretty) and another year living on foreign soil with respect to the tired old rivalry that brings out the worst in both cities.
Perhaps once the games start I'll see things a little differently, and get into the spirit a bit.
Until then, though, मैं हिन्दी फ़िल्में देखती रहूँगी - I'll go right on watching Hindi films.
