Justice Markandey Katju’s Unconventional Take on India’s World Cup Loss: Connecting Cricket and Mythology

Published on

Justice Markandey Katju, a former chairman of the Press Council of India, is renowned for his outspoken views and unconventional opinions. Following India’s loss in the Cricket World Cup final against Australia, various experts have been dissecting the reasons behind the defeat, ranging from batting performances to fielding slip-ups.

However, Justice Katju has offered a truly unique perspective that has captured the internet’s attention.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Justice Katju claimed that Australia’s victory could be attributed to its historical connection with the Pandavas, referring to the country as the storage center of the Pandavas’ ‘Astras,’ known as ‘Astralaya.’ This unexpected theory, lacking any supporting evidence or context, left the online community bewildered.

The post quickly went viral, prompting diverse reactions. One user humorously thanked Justice Katju for his entertaining take, while another playfully extended the concept to attribute the creation of various countries to individuals with corresponding surnames.

Known for his unconventional opinions, Justice Katju has had a distinguished career in law, starting his practice at the Allahabad High Court in 1970.

He held various high-ranking positions in the judiciary before reaching the Supreme Court of India in April 2006, retiring in September 2011.

The recent loss to Australia marks India’s second defeat to the Australians in a final within five months, following the World Test Championship decider in June.
