The Tennis Match

So this is a game. It’s different from anything I’ve ever posted on my blog before. And I want your take on it. I request all of you to post comments. In this blog post, your opinion matters, not just my thoughts. So here it goes:

Picture a tennis game. It involves 2 players. Player A and player B. the rules of the game are that the players are not really supposed to play a conventional game. Their main objective would be to put up a show for the audience, wherein they are expected to display great tennis playing skills and enthrall the audience. For which both player A and player B will be rewarded. But in any case, should they fail to ‘complete’ the tennis match, they shall both be deemed losers.
So, player A invites player B for this interesting game of tennis, and starts the game in front of a huge audience. Player A serves first. Player B almost misses the shot but manages to return the ball in an amazing display of skill. When the ball goes back to player A, player A pretends player B hasn’t actually returned the ball but a bomb instead (like in Tom and Jerry cartoons where Jerry returns a bomb to Tom instead of the ball and the bomb explodes leaving Tom with the tennis racket around his neck). But player B had indeed returned the ball and not a bomb. Player A runs away from the tennis court and the stadium. Leaving player B in the middle of the tennis court and both of them lose the prize money. A couple of months later, player A invites player B for this interesting game again and does the same. Player B is obviously disappointed and feels betrayed but is still interested in completing the game once. So the question this brings to one’s mind is:

1. What must player B do to player A when they meet next?
2. How is player A expected to react?

So this is what I need from you: your answers.
I’m requesting this time. I’m not putting my state of mind. Just a random thought, though it does resemble the situation between India and Pakistan to some extent. But then, it happens in normal life as well.

hmmm...rachit..kuh kuch to samajh aa ra hai..

player B is supposed to ask certain questions when the meet next and..expect the answers straight from the gut...
and if the answers are satisfactory...give a hug and a peck..and make up..

player A is expected to accept..if its a mistake gracefully...and if its not give proper reasons for it..

of watevr i cud make out player A either needs glasses or a psychatrist..lol....


on a serious note even i think player B shud talk to player A and expect some clear answers....

and player A is expected to make sure he has talked abt his prob in detail n doesnt do d same in future...
