Don’t tell me that they’re still going on with it?
Well, the BCCI seems to be very keen that the Indian Premier League does happen. Home Minister P. Chidambaram may have made a request to postpone it till after the elections. But you know how it is. A lot of money has been put in; lots of plans are already in place. Okay, who am I kidding? A lot of money has been put in so....
Who cares about the IPL? I’m talking about the reality TV show Knights and Angels. I hope that the show’s still going to go ahead regardless of the IPL or, frankly, the future of cricket.
Ah, that. Well, Shah Rukh Khan and Sourav Ganguly are really pushing for it.
Er, they would. They are the hosts of the show.
Yes, well, yes. But it’s also about national pride.
National pride. You are talking about a TV show on competing cheerleaders, right?
Yes. Remember the brouhaha last year when all those firang girls were cheerleading in front of the crowds. Different traditions, different ideas of clothes. This time it’ll be only desi ladies. No rolled up blouses like they have in Hooters outlets in America!
Hmm. I don’t see why cheerleaders only have to be there for cricket. Political parties need cheerleading too, no?
Um, why not? The neta makes his speech on the stage with the pom-pom girls frolicking and egging him and his supporters on. Brilliant!
Do say: Postpone the elections for security reasons.
Don’t say: Will terrorists target cheerleaders too?
