Fool Aur Chanta —Snippets from IPL

87 Comments

Snippet 1: Thanks to the IPL, the concept of nation-state is perilously close to collapse. If people were stunned a few days ago seeing the Jaipur crowd booing Sreesanth for giving verbals to “local boy” Pakistani Kamran Akmal, today things took an even more dramatic turn.

Civil war became a real possibility as Punjabputra Harbhajan Singh gave Sreesanth, representing Punjab Kings XI a resounding slap, the likes of which have not been seen outside the sets of Kkusum or Kasauti Zindagi Ki. While reports that Bhajji slapped Sreesanth ten times, (nine times in slow motion with ominous music in the background) upon which Sreesanth said “Yeh thappad ki goonj mujhe yaad rahega, Obnoxious Weed” could not be confirmed ,what however is beyond doubt that “uber tough man” Sreesanth, upon being hit by the doosra, started bawling Nirupa Roy style.

Snippet 2: A Minister of State in the Maharashtra government Siddharam Mehetre has promised strict action against naughty cheerleaders :

Earlier, the Minister described the cheerleaders and their dancing at the Indian Premier League matches as “absolutely obscene.”

“We live in India where womanhood is worshipped. How can anything obscene like this be allowed?

“These are things meant for foreigners and not for us. Mothers and daughters watch these matches on television. It does not look nice,” he said.

If we could now only get the mothers and daughters into the next room, the one without TV, then we can all watch the cheerleaders without having to look over our shoulders.

Bengal, led by Subhas Chakraborty, the man famous for bringing “oposonskriti” (bad culture) to the “cultured” state with Hope 86, also threatened to ban the dancers. Of course the fact that Subhash Chakraborty is the current Cricket Association of Bengal president’s chief enemy and has been trying to bring down IPL from day one, has nothing to do with it.

India Daily, winner of Greatbong’s Howitzer Award of awesome reporting, and a late entrant into sports journalism has an interesting angle.

Cricket can be dry and Ipl want to make it sexy with cheerleaders, show girls and more. Shatrughan Sinha lashed out at organisers of IPL matches for bringing cheer girls to the stadiums, making a “mockery” of cricket.

IPL officials do not agree. They believe sex is part of life and cricket must be mixed with sex to deliver to the public just like Bollywood.

Eventually every player will have a lady rep like the wrestling matches. IPL will make tons of more money by mixing sex and cricket and providing a spcier punch than even Bollywood.

[….]

But native Indian men are sex starved. When they come to US for a short visit, first thing they do is go for ‘escorts’ and call girls. It gave IPL a clear idea how to sell these western cheerleaders and make some more money.

“Cricket itself is an entertainment. It does not require such cheerleaders to entertain,” said Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi. But many of the cricketers disagree. They love to have cheerleaders and escort girls next to them. The spice makes cricket hotter than other sports.

I agree with the Maharashtra minister to an extent. Foreigners do not know our culture and the respect we hold our women in, as evidenced on New Year’s eve in front of the Gateway of India. The problem can be solved if we have desi cheerleaders i.e. Indian starlets dressed in apsara clothes and three-quarters Asha Parekh saris who get doused in water every time a six gets hit.

Of course in Maharashtra cheerleaders can only be Marathi manoosis who have to dance to Mungda and Dhagala Lagli Kala — after all we cannot get Raj-saheb angry.

And in Calcutta, the problem can be simply solved by giving the Lal Dhotis a few complimentary tickets and front row seats so that they can convince themselves that capitalism in motion isn’t always a bad thing.

  1. LOL…Hilarious!
    Loved ‘eh thappad ki goonj tumhe yaad rahega, Obnoxious Weed’
    But anyways, our man Bhajji is in soup this time and I would like to see who is going to bail him out of this one

  2. The point is people who are raising their voices against stuff like cheerleaders in minis are not really concerned about Indian culture and women getting worshipped etc. Had they been given a chance to enjoy some non-veg entertainment when they were young they woulndn’t have minded at all.

    But these days titillation add a little dose of spice to every form of entertainment, be it movies, sports or even ads.
    The organizers and sponsors are not mere fools. They know spicing up every event will bring in more money. After all, it’s all about money.
    People who are shouting against these are actually in their 50s and 60s and they just can’t come to terms with the fact that the gen-x is enjoying things they have missed out on when they were young. I’m sure many of these oldies hold private parties with chhamiyas doing latkas and jhatkas while dancing to the tunes of vulgar bhojpuri/marathi/hindi numbers.

    As far as young guns like Afridi protesting against cheerleaders is concerned, it doesn’t really require one to be an Einstein to figure out where his problem is. When a once handsome clean-shaven playboy belonging to a particular country suddenly grows beard (along with many of his teammates), it’s quite obvious what he thinks about women now. Ask Osama about it, and he will have similar things to say about cheerleadrs.

    On Sreesanth being slapped, I truly believe that taking into account things he had been exhibiting for the past few months on the cricket field, he deserved to be slapped by someone. The big-mouth brat has been doing more things with his mouth than with the ball on the field. Being a senior member in the Indian team, Bhajji has the right to take a spoilt brat to task. The only mistake Bhajji made probably was he could have done it in private and not in the open. He would have to face the music now.

  3. That is fast reporting from you!
    Sabse tej…great bong 😀
    I have been waiting for the Indian Media to wake up in the morning and give more masala.

    Action. Drama. Comedy. Emotions.

    the IPL opera is going to be a blockbuster for sure 😀

    PS: I am ashamed of people like bhajji and Sharad powar and the Ray Malis and Chingookas etc who think cricket is their baap-ki-jaagir. Why cant they have one of those cheerleaders of their own and be happy?

  4. @dEbOLiN….as per cheerleaders, they shud have bikini clad models(females) as umpires. everyone generally hates umpires…this view will be changed. for decision making who cares….any how its all abt 6s in 4s….i wonder if they shud put bowling machine in place of bowlers and bowler’s place shud b given to another cheerleadr..

  5. A Punjabi slapping a non Punjabi who plays for a Punjab team owned by a Mumbaiite with a Sri Lankan teammate consoling him while his Australian coach wants strict action to be taken…and they say cricket cannot work without inter nation competition.

    As for the cheerleaders, when there are other major issues to discuss and work on, our politicians take the convenient route to earn brownie points. They fail to realize that India is getting younger with more than 50% being below 30. And the young males surely do not mind it.

  6. “Thanks to the IPL, the concept of nation-state is perilously close to collapse.”

    My guess is the creators of IPL have figured this out from Rediff discussion boards; where any issue will eventually be framed in ‘regional’ terms. Our regional identities have always been stronger than our national self! Interestingly enough- people have been quick to adopt players from other states/countries and accept them as ‘local’ players- a necessary condition for a concept like IPL to take off.

    Anyways, I am not complaining… 44 days of uninterrupted cricket!

  7. Bhajji is such an ass. This is unacceptable. Look at his antics after taking a catch or picking up a wicket when he’s playing for India. This lunatic sure had a E grade upbringing. I think his mother, who stays somewhere close to Mohali, need to grab hold of him before he leaves for Bombay and teach him some decency. It seems to me she must have been a really busy woman when he was a child.

  8. I am stunned by how quickly the political process in India has recognised moral outrage and reacted to it. Sometimes, I wish they did it for more important issues.

    Also, check the rediff caption beside the Sreesanth photograph: “India pacer S Sreesanth sheds tears of joy after the Punjab team finished with a 66-run victory. He had figures of 4-0-31-2.”

  9. Snippet 1 is a treasure! 🙂 Beautiful. “…“uber tough man” Sreesanth, upon being hit by the doosra, started bawling Nirupa Roy style.” is superb, especially the bowling…thuri…bawling part! 😀

  10. Harbajan is a gaandu for hitting someone from his own national team. It has nothing to do with the IPL or the fact that supporters are getting behind teams (after dont a lot of Indians support U.K football teams?). It is very rare that Aussies are right in their character assasinations, but they seem to have got Harbajan right.

  14. So, on a slightly unrelated note – when do we see the “Greatbong Eats Humble Pie” post given how well the Kolkatta team is performing in the IPL so far? Or is the “Great”bongs XXL ego disallowing that?

  15. I feel for Bhajji though.
    Can it be the end of his career and at least popularity??
    He’s gonna get boooos every where he goes now.

    And yeah, this cheerleader thing, the entertainment part is not the cheerleaders themselves but the ‘protest against them’. Oh Man, I just love it!

    Debashish: Kolkatta actually lost !

  16. but where is the actual chata? all we saw was the kid crying and people people going bacche nhai rona. a hindi news channel had a picture of bhaji and sreesant with some kind of photoshopped chaata and that was all. cant believe that with thousands of cameras all over the place no one caught it.
    maybe there is a more sinister reason…. the IPL photo-gestapo at work!

  17. @km….bingo…with so many cameras that even cheerleader’s undergarments can host some ads, how can they miss the most notorious slap in the history of indian cricket aftr WC2007??? or its again a well cooked up TPR raising excercise?

  18. @vibhash…… naaah i dont think even saas bahu dirctors (you cant get lower than those) can cook this up.
    by the way why didnt the guy slap yuvraj or brett lee or preiti zinta? probably because he has a healthy sense of self preservation. yeah pick on the inoffensive little mallu!

  19. At the opening ceremony of the IPL, when Ravi Shastri called Sunil Gavaskar on to the stage, I knew what was to follow. Sunil Gavaskar is a man who never forgets and never forgives. He did not publicly divulge his displeasure after the ICC tried to clip his wings following his quite just comments in papers during the Australian tour, but this was home turf and a BCCI organized tournament. So he made a long speech about the spirit of cricket and invoked MCC (both Marylebone and Micheal Colin Cowdrey) and made every captain sign on a board that they will upheld the spirit of cricket.

    After yesterday’s incident, the BCCI must suspend Bhajji. It just must. Otherwise people will say the glass house and stones quote next time. Plus Harbhajan Singh is an ahole to slap a fellow player from the national side. I think Sreesanth was really shocked and probably cried so much as he was hit in the eye. Suspension from IPL (but not long term) and huge fines is the way to go with Bhajji.

    Regarding cheerleaders, I knew that this issue was going to have some repercussions in some warped way. Especially in places like Mumbai where people exhibit warped psychologies.

    “The Maharashtra government on Thursday said “strict action” would be taken if cheerleaders violated the norms of decency in their attire at the April 27 IPL match between Mumbai Indians and Deccan Chargers here.”….”He, however, did not specify what action would be taken and against whom —whether the cheerleaders or organisers.”…LOL 🙂

    “Earlier, the Minister described the cheerleaders and their dancing at the Indian Premier League matches as “absolutely obscene.”
    Which means that I am correct. The idea of cheerleaders is actually working. He is basically rubber-stamping the idea through his displeasure.

    ““We live in India where womanhood is worshipped. How can anything obscene like this be allowed?”

    That is basically what is being done you thick headed Minister! Bits and pieces along with nooks and crannies of womanhood are being worshiped! Its allowed because this is the way the mass psychology can be changed. The more skin you see, the more nakedness you see as a man, the happier you are. And familiarity breeds contempt. If you see more nude and almost nude women, women in miniskirts would affect you less. They would still perturb, but not make you rush to the restroom to whack off. As GB said, raping women on New Years eve is the way to worship women, right Mr Minister!

    “These are things meant for foreigners and not for us. Mothers and daughters watch these matches on television. It does not look nice,” he said.
    It does look nice and you know it, you ahole minister. How different is this dress from the Mehbooba dance dress in Sholay? But I knew. Seeing on FTV is one thing. Seeing from close range is another. People in the western world have lotsa fun in summer in exotic places like Cancun. Our Indian boys are seeing some of that fun too this Indian summer! I dont know about mothers, but the more daughters are affected by this stuff, the better it is for young men.

    Regarding the telegraph article about Oposonskriti, all I can say is that the only thing I envy about those ahole left ministers is their longevities. But I know many people would rather live till 80 leading a decadent lifestyle than live till 100 and lead a life like those aholes.

  20. @KM…thn whr is tht clip..hope even if they cnt show, it is shown to the match officials….and abt the cooking story…i bet, saas bahu operas dnt have one tenth of cooking up creativity of these news channels

  21. Well..nobody actually could come up with a photo/clip that shows Bhajji slapping Sreesanth.
    However, I found a video clip in youtube which suggests the reason Sreesanth was crying was something else.

    The caption is : “Preety Zinta Refused to Hug – Sreesanth Cried like a Kid” !!!

    Here’s the link :

    I found it convincing enough, though not conclusive.

  22. @yourfan2

    my victorian sister-in-law has pronounced the cheerleaders to be decently clad and says that our very own rakhi sawant is much more ahem, ahem…..

    hope we will see more of less-clad-rakhi when the mumbai boys are playing.

  23. there was a report that some obscure cricket organization based out of eden gardens and having CAB patronage was planning to sue in order of preference : CAB, Lalit Modi and IPL for not issuing them free complimentary passes. Abovesaid body sounded like “lal dhotis” well past their prime.

    guess, to silence subhas, give pass to cadre formula may just sonskritize things in calcutta.

    ps: does anybody care to comment on Ponting’s perforance. of course justified for the amount of money he was paid and cribbed about.

  24. “Lal Dhotis a few complimentary tickets and front row seats so that they can convince themselves that capitalism in motion isn’t always a bad thing”.

    @ Greatbong

    hey hey hey…the Communists have seen Capitalism in “motion”; early in the morning, the next day after they eat at Macdonald’s and IHOP…. every time they visit US for Bongo Shommmelons.

    A friend of my claims to have heard Gurudas Dasgupto sit at a Macdonalds in Queens, NY and critisize the crap…I mean “motion” out of Capitalism.

  25. @ Yourfan2

    The Maharashtra Congress minister fellow, who is creating all this trouble, is a supporter of Dallas Cowboys team.

    That I think is the main reason and only reason why he dislikes the Redskin cheerleaders.

    All those other murmers and theories are just false allegations and media misrepresentations.

  26. @ yourfan2
    ‘all I can say is that the only thing I envy about those ahole left ministers is their longevities. But I know many people would rather live till 80 leading a decadent lifestyle than live till 100 and lead a life like those aholes.’

    shashi tharoor’s article a few weeks ago in Times of India seems to indicate that in matters decadent our polticos are hum duniya mein kisi se peeche nahin.
    dont recall tharoor particularly mentioning that bong netas are doodh se dhula…

  27. Hillarious. I loved this one: “If we could now only get the mothers and daughters … over our shoulders”.

    However, specific to this cheerleading issue, I do not object to our great moral-guardian-politicians. The detailed reasoning is at oshantomon.blogspot.com

  28. “I agree with the Maharashtra minister to an extent. Foreigners do not know our culture and the respect we hold our women in, as evidenced on New Year’s eve in front of the Gateway of India” – this is really funny – poking in his eye with his own finger – greatbong – this hypocrisy is true of every politician and most of us – pro or anti – IPL…one cant give a guarantee of safe passage to a single woman in this country to her home during night but the easiest thing is to talk about these cheerleaders “polluting” our great culture. I hope these politicians think for the same amount of time about healthcare, education, prices, social unrest in our country.

  29. Well tangentially speaking I must say VRV Singh who was consoling the cry baby looked a hot uber-hunk. So sexy that it made me hate the crybaby- it must have been meeee in those arms of VRV Singh and certainly not crying!

  30. our very very culturally inclined sports minister did object and said he would take it up with the cm…but seems like he’s got better sense than many culture-conscious netas!!!!
    great post as always..

  31. Nice post…but obligatory Marathi correction: it is not Marathi manoosis. It can be Marathi mulgis (plural: mulgi meaning girl) or Marathi Baaykaa (again plural) meaning ladies.

    I wish Sreesanth had slapped Bhajji back…imagine the possibilities..who needs cheerleaders when we have these guys?

  32. When they come to US for a short visit, first thing they do is go for ‘escorts’ and call girls. That’s something that can e said for a considerable number of people in high places in the US as well. The DC Madam scandal is still unfolding and a lot more names are likely to tumble out.

  33. “These are things meant for foreigners and not for us. Mothers and daughters watch these matches on television. It does not look nice”

    See, that’s whole problem. Mothers and daughters watching cricket. Shouldn’t they be rather watching the daily soaps? Whenever they watch the cricket, all i hear is “He is soooo cute, no?”. Makes me wanna run away. But the whole cheerleading thing looks stupid and forced. If they played better cricket, we wouldn’t need that

  34. @Rishi- If you thought WMD was a great obfuscation of truth by a bunch of politicians, just listen to this explanation below by Subhash over his contradictory stance regarding IPL cheerleaders as opposed to Hope 86 (translated from ABP). Its amazing how politicians put a spin on things.

    Q: So how come did you organize something like Hope 86 back then which was so similar in theme to what the cheerleaders do? Why did you give CM J.Basu a hardon by making Rekha dance in front of him on that night, in open air and under dark skies?

    A: “In 1986, there were unfounded rumors floating around regrading the safety of women and the state of law and order in Calcutta. So Hope 86 was organized to falsify such rumors. After a rocking night, girls went home in the dead of the night safely and without incidents. Therefore, it was a proof of the fact that there was absolutely nothing wrong with the law and order situation in Kolkata. QED. ”

    Q: “And what is your explanation regarding similar type of ‘vulgar’ dancing during the Natl. Futbol League?”

    A: I was opposed to it. But the girls started crying and bitching. So being a soft hearted man who cannot stand to see a girl shedding a drop of tear, I gave in to their demands temporarily and allowed it to happen. But I would not allow it now.

    Just as importantly, its is worthwhile to quote his political rival and one of the greatest administrators the world of football has ever seen, Mr. PR Das Munshi. With his unique world perspective which common men like you and I don’t and cannot ever hope to possess, PR says:

    “I don’t see any vulgarity in the dance of cheerleaders. Because sport is ‘entertainment’. I have seen virtually nude girls doing Samba in Brazil. I have seen the sight of a Diego Maradona surrounded by 200 nymphets. And those who have not seen such sights, will never quite fathom the meaning of sport as entertainment. And experienced people like me are therefore not perturbed to see such small skin shows. Indian culture is not so fragile that it will crack under the stamping li’l feet of cheerleaders. ” Classic. 🙂

    @vibash- Will think about it. Of course you would know that you can make more money with blogs with embedded sopcast showing cricket than one with lots of text and hyperink.

    @Swati- With four consecutive defeats, Mumbai Manoos team requires all sorts of entertainment to compensate for what their cricket team is not providing. Actually, the opposition teams are providing great entertainment against them. Gilchrist really slaughtered them today.

    @km- Agreed. GB touched upon the subject in “Torches, Tibet and Skahti Kapoor”

    @kangeya-When they come to US for a short visit, first thing they do is go for ‘escorts’ and call girls. The foolish ones certainly do. As you can get drunk girls during bar-close time for much less. Also, brothels near Carson City (not Vegas- common mistake) have much better women than escorts with stretch marks. Also I dunno why a man would want to spend so many dollars when he can get much cheaper Eastern European girls in Amsterdam? The only justification could possibly be the falling dollar. As you would know, US is hardly as liberal as Europe. Religion plays such a big part in the politics of US. Recenetly an atheist soldier was harassed in the army for not worshipping ‘GOD’. So thats why prostitution will not be legalized here. US has its own set of prejudices like Intelligent Design which would make the most backward Indian appear smart. Politicians of course cannot hang around in bars to meet chicks and so they go to escorts and hire hookers with nice racks. A sting operation results in a palatable scandal for the public and media.

  35. @ Yourfan2

    Subhash babu says, “I was opposed to it. But the girls started crying and bitching….”.

    hehe….The cheerleaders should join Srisanth and start crying too. All the political hearts will melt.

    Btw, Arnabs idea of “Indian starlets dressed in apsara clothes and three-quarters Asha Parekh saris who get doused in water every time a six gets hit” is fantastic.

    No micromini/sportsbra combo can beat a wet sari ensemble. For the women viewers, I must add, the water hosers could be hunks in firemens’ clothes…ki bolo Swatidi?

  36. With the whole ‘slugfest’ episode, Im starting to have my doubts as to whether Bhajji did racially abuse Symmo during the India-Aussie series, he does seem capable of it….and yeah Symmo looked quite happy yesterday after the Bhajji-Ban….

    And strange seems Bhajji’s explanation of how Sreesanth is like a younger brother and such things ‘happen in families but are forgiven and forgotten’….ahem!

    And the political honchos dont seem to be bothered about a 15 foot hole that apperared out of nowhere on a busy Mumbai street, but are so ‘affected’ but cheerleaders! Gosh, so much for having their priorities right!

  37. sreesanth has clarified that the slap was actually more like a WWF punch. Since, we all know that WWF wrestlers can’t punch with a closed fist (besdies, the whole thing is staged and wrestlers only play act), harbhajan couldn’t have been too harsh. so lay off the fella, will ya?!

  38. Greatfan as I am of Greatbong, I still don’t see YOUR take on it. So let me ask you, what is your take on the issue?

  39. Well, da reason behind Afridi protestin da leaders i.e. the cheering ones and not da dhoti-clad borin stuff, is dat he’s gay and hav heard bout it earlier also……….

  40. @greatbong and everybody else as well,

    do we really worship women, do we really need to worship them at all?
    is it necessary?
    i mean lets face it, women or men are not meant for worshipping, nobody is meant for worshipping.
    why every time our intellectuals and leaders come up with the same crass of culture,values,tradition.
    if khajuraho is not low in morality cheerleaders are definitely not.
    THATS IT.
    p.s. krishno korle leela aar aamra korle vulgarity!!!

  41. Both the Monkey (Harbhajan) and the Orangutang (Sreesanth) need to be taken out of the game for an extended period till the realize that they don’t make the game, the game makes them what they are. The habitual disrespect of other players and countries has gone on too long without any restraint.

    This is also probably the difference between Dada’s and Dhoni’s reign. Dada inculcated aggression, but always kept his loose canons in check. Dhoni feels that cannons are meant to be fired, and has mentioned that verbal abuse is a legit tactic in his captaincy book. This is a perfect example of how brash youth, drunk with its own success, can sully a legacy handed to it by a previous (in this case alternate) generation.

    I deliberately left out Dravid’s tenure, because it was too depressing and wishy washy to have any lasting impact on team dynamics.

    As for cheerleaders, I really fail to understand their attraction. After the first 2 matches, their routine is boring and repetitive. They are inconsequential and whether they stay or go, whether they are dressed or not has no real consequence. I really don’t care, and I am amused that so many seem to.

  42. The double standards in india are so pathetic that u tend to go numb after a while… last week saw a new minor raped in delhi EVERY day of that week. even 12 and 7 year olds; but no politician wants to tell the nation what the law enforcement/legal mechanisms need augmentation…
    thats probably too much to expect when dere r such pressing issues like cheerleaders dancing in IPL;

  43. Bhajji’s been handed an 11-match ban and a huge fine. Suits I guess. It was high time.

    But India better get used to such altercations. This is only the beginning. Passion gone wild doesn’t spare any of our own too.

  44. Funny as usual! I hope Sreesanth didn’t actually bawl? I missed some of the ‘action’ thanks to my travel. 🙂

    Re: cheeerleaders, I guess this was to be expected. More fodder for the Jay Lenos and David Lettermans.

  45. i wonder if bhajji maa-behenned poor sreesanth along with the slap. nothing was mentioned in the media.
    could it be that bhajji is mellowing down?

  46. nice one!
    but what abt the concept of nationalizm finishing????
    we have enough pseudo nationalism already….its refreshing to see people adjusting to this new system…..talk about this if theres india pakistan match going on in jaipur…and akmal gets more cheer than any indian player…..
    chew on that….and think again before you go on record cryin abt national feeling decreasing….

  47. Its interesting to see how the IPL crowds react to the one guy who is yet to debut this season. Is there a ground in India where his wicket will be cheered more than his boundaries. This could be the final test on IPL and fading nationalism..

  48. Fool aur Chanta, Phool aur kanta
    Nice one, GB 🙂

    IPL sponsors could not have dreamt of a better attention-grabber than Bhajji’s chop. They should pay Bhajji for this selfless act of hype.

  49. “Shan – Both the MONKEY (Harbhajan) and the ORANGUTANG (Sreesanth) need to be taken out of the game”

    No egregious, racial slurs here, then.

    “Shan – The [habitual] disrespect of other players and countries has gone on too long”

    Habitual … hmmm.

  50. Very good post…
    Check this out on India Daily –
    “He slapped Srinath after a verbal squabble. It was hard and furious. IPL officials are up in arms with both Harbhajan and Srinath. But Bhaji now claims it was all set up. Srinath instigated as well planned to get Bhaji out of the tournament. But Bhaji now claims it was all set up. Srinath instigated as well planned to get Bhaji out of the tournament.”

    Srinath??? India Daily truly deservs the Howitzer award. 🙂

  51. Knight Riders on their way out of the competition. I do not see how we are going to make the semis now. Disgusting. Wonder whether Shak Rukh took any advise from Sourav while bidding ?

  52. The way KKR played against Mumbai today, they should be named KDR – Kolkata Donkey Riders. Riding on the back of Bollywood Donkey Shah Rukh Khan.

  53. @Kishore. Well if it’s a donkey they are riding then we need not change the acronym. Kolkata Kishore Riders would work just as fine.

    :-))) just kidding but couldn’t help missing out on that one !!

  54. Hey Kishor,

    Isnt it you who said:

    “Hyderabad Deccan Chargers will beat the shit out of all other teams. VVS Laxman will take grand revenge on Ganguly and Dravid for all the ill treatment he received under their respective captaincies. Their stupidity really spoiled his career. Ganguly and Dravid better wear diapers when playing against Hyderabad Deccan Chargers. Hyderabad is the champion.”

    Well at least Sourav has won 2 lost 2. I think Laxman, the Hyderabadi idiot, has won only 1 losing to Ganguly. Guess who is wearing the diapers now?

  55. @ Kishor:
    As innovative and unique as always… [:)]
    Well, in that case Deccan Chargers too should be re-chirstened to Dhakkan Chargers. They have won only one match with their star-studded and most hyped line-up…

  56. @Kishore- Classic as usual!

    @brotish- ”

    @greatbong and everybody else as well,
    do we really worship women, do we really need to worship them at all?
    is it necessary?
    i mean lets face it, women or men are not meant for worshipping, nobody is meant for worshipping.
    why every time our intellectuals and leaders come up with the same crass of culture,values,tradition.
    if khajuraho is not low in morality cheerleaders are definitely not.
    THATS IT.

    p.s. krishno korle leela aar aamra korle vulgarity!!! ”

    Thats a very good point. And remember all the justifications that can be given for such ‘worship’ may have been true for our previous generations- as times were different back then. Remember it is the lust of man which sustains mankind. Such lust does overflow from time to time resulting in acts of criminal offense. But there is no reason to stymie such lust by crooked ways like “worship women”. Condoms do just that. Well 99% of the time. The worst sufferers of this propaganda are of course women themselves. If Indians have some fuzziness in their sexual outlook, it is the consequence of 500 years of muslim rule followed by 200 years of British prudishness. The politicians have their own vested interests in airing such views, ranging from mind control to air time.

    Besides ball busting feminazis, there is a group of men too that object to the objectification of women. These are the pussy-whipped men who do not quite like the idea of other men enjoying what they have forfeited the right to enjoy. Naturally they despise brothels and pornography. Such men often extrapolate singular incidents into theorems of social behavior and advocate laws of rationing of sex and sex appeal via nauseating filibuster. Such a man is Peter Foster (read the comments too).

  57. Another sarcastic take on the week’s IPL events, most of which tended to be controversial and unflattering.

    Of most irritation is the cheerleader controversy and the politician’s contention of equating existence of cheerleaders as supposedly “violating the sanctity of Indian culture” and in some apparently unforeseen way “outraging the modesty of the average Indian woman” – for all their show of moral uprightness, our politicians have little moral fibre to stand on!!
