A cricket match of Australia and New Zealand always reminds me of this topic.Underdogs has always been a interesting topic for me. Its always interesting to watch underdogs doing something that is out of ordinary and something that they are not expected to do.There is always a psychological side attached to this issue. A human being will always try for his status bar to be raised and his prestige level to shoot to new highs. But when you are teased and underrated, a burning desire fires up your soul and drives you to push it to the limit. I have experienced this feeling a number of times and I must say its really a nice one.
What we have seen until is somewhat similar like traversing a graph from zero to its peak. But this is where the story has a serious point. When underdogs start defeating the favourites its the start of their ascendancy. Continuing in the same manner they start becoming favourites. But beware! At the same time some another underdog may come and topple their post. This cycle is endless.
This topic is very much related to the basic principle of life. Not everyday is your day. Life is more like a curve of sine. There will be ups and downs,there will be highs and lows. But at the end of the day those who have a strong belief on themselves and those who respond to their strong inner voice are the ones who fetch the glory.
