The Great IPL Circus

Match fixing, drunken brawl & molestation. All three issues are pending at various levels. The interesting part is that each of the three issues mentioned appeared in the press in that chronological order. But the issue which is closest to CRICKET is MATCH FIXING, the other issues of SHAH RUKH KHAN making counter allegations of his daughter being treated rudely or the issue of a woman accusing an RCB player LUKE POMERSBACH of misbehaving with her ‘FIANCE” are all issues which are either twice or thrice removed from cricket, but have unfortunately overtaken the important issue.

If we ignore MATCH FIXING, it wouLd be better that we ALLOW the bookies auction the IPL trophy than have the players exhibit their skills.

I like that pouty lil kiddo called SIDDARTH MALLYA telling the media that THE WOMAN WAS ALL OVER HIM AND THAT SHE ASKED HIM FOR HIS BBM PIN, AND THEREFORE WAS BOT BEHAVING IN A MANNER BEFITTING A WOMAN ABOUT TO BECOME A WIFE! If there was any overt offer from any woman, it surely is because of his pedigree and the heirdom that is likely to befall (with all that KINGFISHER debts to settle!)  him and not because of his ACHIEVEMENTS AS AN INDIVIDUAL.  The POUTY kiddo, no doubt should take up for his “RCB FAMILY MEMBER’, but not by making such derogatory remarks on a woman.

Let us for a minute assume that she did not behave in a way worthy of a woman about to become a wife; yet that episode was between the POUTY KIDDO and HER, does that mean that she would have behaved in a similar  way with the RCB player LUKE? Not necessarily. LUKE is definitely no Becker or Tiger Woods! Assuming that the woman invited LUKE POMERSBACH to her room, does LUKE POMERSBACH  acquire a vested interest to molest the woman? No not at all.

For a minute i wouldn’t have any reader of my blog believe that i impute great innocence to the woman or Sahil Peerzada! But taking up for a man who beat up an occupant or the occupant’s fiance in his/her own room is unpardonable, especially  if there is no justifiable reason for the aggressor. Till now there is no counter allegation from LUKE POMERSBACH.

I like VIJAY MALLAYA’S mature answer that the incident was unfortunate and that they would co-operate with the authorities. Well said, that was all that was needed instead of mouthing nonsense like his brat son. A word of advice for the POUTY BRAT:A MANTLE IS DIFFERENT FROM A MAN! A MAN IS SELF-MADE, WHEREAS WHEN THE MANTLE FALLS ON SOMEONE HE WOULD MERELY BECOME AN INHERITOR, AND NOT A PIONEER! Grow up kiddo- don’t let a few chicks ( giving u the kicks) get to your green tongue.

Now coming back to our Shah Rukh Khan, he sure is a self-made man and deserves to be raptly heard, mostly for all those sober explanations which he mouths the day after the incident. We have sixteen cameras to capture cricket action, i suppose we should perpetually focus a couple of those on celebrities who appear in a choreographed manner with a batch of kindergarten kids to add innocence to their blood-shot drunken looks!

TRUTH surely seems to be a casualty in this episode, the morning after, the guard says nice things about SRK. A raise to the guard by his Security & Detective agency boss cannot be ruled out, nor can a good contract by Karan Johar around his project sites should not be ruled out. BUT BELIEVE YOU ME, THEY ARE UNCONNECTED.

Mr. Shukla says that BCCI’s ruling on SRK’s disqualification from entering Wankhede Stadium would be final (nobody went on appeal on the decision of the Bombay Cricket Assn. at the time of this statement! )- what he means is that : IF I OVER-RULE THAT DISQUALIFICATION, THEN SRK CAN ENTER- SO INFLUENCE ME!


Rukh Rukh Rukh Shahrukh!!!

If one were to go to a voting booth in India, one has to wait in the queue. For the common man it is no ordeal as he has indexed the time taken in standing in a queue while computing the total time taken for accomplishing the task. But for the rich and the famous their TIME is precious, therefore they hate standing in queues and awaiting their turn. TIME lost in such inane activity is loss of precious time which could be spent on palpably profitable ventures.

There is another angle that the common man does not understand, which is a peculiar problem faced by the rich, the famous and the powerful. That is the security threat. If they stand in a queue, there is every possibility of them being targeted by the sociopath/terrorist for mere publicity of his/her organization/ideology. This security threat perception cannot be ignored. The above said category of persons are easily recognizable in India and therefore even the common man shows them deference and allows them precedence over his turn.

Here we had a hero who is known for Ka Ka Ka Ka KARAN, who must have stammered his lines when he was asked to explain the purpose of his visit to the United States of America, by the Customs and Border Police. Further, it must have been a shock to him that he was not RECOGNIZED!!! The Hindi speaking patriates and ex-patriates have inflated his ego to such an extent that he had lost sight of his own insignificance in the vast sea of humanity.

Mr. Salman Khan comes up with his own concoction that it was because of such stringent checks that no terrorist attack had happened, post 9/11. Whether there was truth in that statement by Salman Khan or not, the contents lacked the sympathy due to a man sharing the same field and the second name.

The funniest part is that the public which did not react to APJ ABdul Kalam’s frisking, in our own Indian soil were thoroughly outraged. One politician goes to the extent of saying that we Indians shud take vindictive action and subject every American to frisking/ fondling etc. etc.

On the whole the reactions have been quicker than when it happened to Dr.APJ. He had protocol exemption as the Ex President of the Republic of India, but none cared. It was done in the Indian soil, none cared. He is much older and far more respected by the respectable and the erudite, but none voiced his/her protest. But our people are outraged that a cine actor was stopped and inordinately detained in foreign soil!!

I see the country going in some direction!!! CINE DIRECTION. Mr.Shahrukh Khan would have become a bigger star had he feigned the humility of a Bachchan and said that IF DR.ABDUL KALAM COULD BE FRISKED IN OUR OWN SOIL, IT IS NOTHING THAT I WAS DETAINED FOR OVER 2 HOURS IN AN ALIEN SOIL.

Now coming to the PROFILING aspect of singling out persons with Islamic names, Asian complexion etc etc. This has been nothing new. Our own security staff would do that and even many other persons have been detained for ruling out that he/she was not the person as per the look-out circulars. Kamal Haasan, a Tamil actor,  was detained in the US. All probably because if one were to split up his name, KAMAL and HASAN have the Islamic flavour. But the actor did not go to town talking how shabbily he had been treated!!

The very thought that an easily recognizable face in India was  UNRECOGNIZED in the US and  treated like a suspect, slakes some of my envy of those ethereal Indian characters who have a disjointed sense of reality.

Ruk ruk ruk……….Shahrukh!!!
