As soon as Bangladesh beat Bermuda to qualify for the next round of the Cricket World Cup, I headed to Danforth/Victoria Park (Little Bangladesh) of Toronto with my friends.
This is T Sr.'s SUV, with T Jr. out of the sunroof waving the Bangladesh flag. Notice that we are now all part of a convoy (lineup) of cars, all sporting Bangladesh flags.
Pretty soon a crowd started to gather around. Note that one man in the picture (to the right) above has a megaphone, he has already started trying to lead a march!
Strangers were just congratulating and hugging each other!
Even people who had no idea of cricket joined in the fun.
Soon the lineup of cars (more than 30!) all made their way into the Indian/Pakistani part of the town - Gerrard Street. With the Bangladesh win having knocked India out of the Cup, needless to say, the Pakistanis were more pleased to see us, than the Indians! (too bad I was inside our car and couldn't take a proper picture of the flag decorated cars)
If you squint you can make out the flags though!
At the end of the day, shopkeepers were giving out free rosogollas and samosas. Who says we are cheap?
