Few things in life is as nerve-wracking as an India Pakistan match. Even if you are not a devout follower of cricket, you cannot claim to remain unaffected when the arch-rivals meet and play against each other. Prayers are offered, all superstitions are followed as fans wait with bated breath to watch the outcome of the match. It is also a common practice to predict the result of the watch and as India and Pakistan are busy fighting it out against each other in the Champions Trophy, a journalist in Pakistan went ahead and let a camel from Lahore’s zoo take the call.

After all, we did have Chanakya the fish and Paul the octopus, who have become household names predicting sporting results.

In a video, that seems to be from Geo TV, which is now being widely shared online, one can see there are two placards, mentioning the name of the nations, kept next to each to each other. While the left one reads Bharat or India, the one on the right reads Pakistan.

And lo and behold, the camel stoops and chooses the placard that says Pakistan.

    There is no dearth of fools around the globe. In India too we find people resorting to hawans for our victory. Also, people flocking to Ganesh temples to witness his idol's milk consumption in late 1990s is still vivid in our memory. Peoples' worshipping of SRT or AB are all irrational acts of idolizing ordinary mortals as gods. Supers ions & illiteracy are the root causes for people's belief in such idiocity.

    Like the proverbial coward, the camel must be sticking it's head in the sand after learning of the result in the ODI.
