This post is not about how P Ricky and Dubya are somehow related. Actually Dubya and P Ricky were very different in their attitude to things Indian. Dubya, whatever be his image in the Rest of the World, supported the Indian cause. P Ricky lived up to his name when it came to his relation with India as a cricket playing nation.
Actually it's Dubya successor who has a lot in common with P Ricky.
- Both are leading what were erstwhile super powers but now on on the wane.
- Both are taking a beating in popularity polls iin their respective countries.
- While P Ricky has been vociferous about talent being attracted by jobs in India (His view on Oz cricketers playing IPL), his US counterpart cries foul on jobs going to Indian talent.
- Both are high on rhetoric, low on performance
- Both have twerps as deputies.
So actually the photo should be :
Don't they look similar now?
