(Abdullah is getting crazy during the wedding of a stranger)

Basically, this phrase means that the event is occuring with relation to total strangers – but you are getting worked up.

Something like that has been happening – and happening repeatedly in Bangladesh.. The news byte below was from June 17th. It happened again last night during the Germany vs Argentina match. Latin American teams are favorite with the Bengalis in India and Bangladesh – so it aint surprising for one who understands how crazy the Bengalis can be! Funny thing is two totally stranger teams are playing (and your country is not even in the tournament ANYWHERE) and these folks end up destroying their own public property!!!

Soccer fans in southwestern Bangladesh attacked an electricity office after multiple power failures interrupted coverage of two World Cup soccer matches.

Protesters wielding bamboo sticks attacked the Rural Electrification Board office in Gopalganj district and hurled stones after the power was cut off during the match between Argentina and Serbia & Montenegro on Friday night, a police official said Saturday on condition of anonymity, in line with policy.

Two officials were slightly injured in the attacks, he said. The area is 104 kilometers (65 miles) southwest of the capital, Dhaka.

The power failed again during the match between the Netherlands and Ivory Coast, the official said, and extra police were deployed Saturday to prevent further violence.

There was also unrest in Dhaka’s Mirpur region due to the frequent power cuts, the Manabzamin daily reported.

Electrical supplies to rural Bangladesh have been decreased to ensure there is adequate power in Dhaka and other main cities and towns, the newspaper said.

Bangladeshi soccer fans mostly support Brazil or Argentina, and hundreds of flags of the two South American nations have been hoisted in Dhaka and other cities and towns.
