Less than a week into the World Cup, football fans from India are showing symptoms of weariness. No, it’s definitely not because of the action on the field but due to the timings at which the matches are being broadcast. Most of the matches extend upto 5:30am in India. It’s been noticed that school students and office executives are taking a nap during their ‘active’ schedule.

Mahmood Basha of Madina School was sleeping in the Hindi class. Kirtana, an intermediate student dozed off happily in her physics class. Executives in IT companies were seen taking longer breaks and dozing in the resting lounge. A mother in a joint family forced her son to watch the late night matches at his friend’s house as he was disturbing the family. The 17-year-old son shouted “Goal” at 4am which woke up a family of 24 people from their deep slumber.

The next day, the discussion at the breakfast table of the family was the odd hours at which the matches were being broadcast.

It is more like a disease where people adhere to their televisions at odd hours and not get enough sleep. There is a potential rise of cases were in people crazy about the sport may take fraudulent sick leaves from work and the same applies to students. The time difference will make sleep a casualty for football fans. Watch out for those yawns, red TV glazed eyes and lack of attention and concentration at work.
