I just had to take a break from all that hypocritical rubbish on television right now. Especially Farouq Abdullah making the silliest, most sexist comments that had no relevance to the IPL controversy. He was all but drooling on Barkha's show when he talked about Sunanda and how beautiful she is.... like that took care of everything, including the sleaze factor. He was even sillier on Karan Thapar's show when he talked about the role of politicians who can make things happen 'rapidly' and open doors for people like Lalit Modi! Tell us about it! He claimed he was doing all this for the people of his state..... I left the room, unable to hear another idiotic word on the subject. At the time of posting this entry, Tharoor was still hanging in there but Sunanda had 'surrendered' her sweat equity ( some sacrifice ). Her lawyer in Dubai and Abdullah in studios conveyed that this great act of hers was enough to let her and her boy friend off the hook. It took a BJP lady to ask whether a thief is declared innocent if he\she returns what was stolen. Gosh.... the Indian Private League of 'chaalu' people is likely to dominate the news for a while to come, especially if Tharoor steps down tonight as expected. But that will not solve a thing!! Now that the can of worms has been pried open, let's go all the way .... nail all those biggies once and for all. Spare noone. Himmat hai sarkar ko?? Not a chance. Everybody has something on everyone else. The name of this game is blackmail.... with corruption going all the way to the top. ALL THE WAY!
Interesting to find out who planted those low intensity bombs in Bangalore. Sounds too amateurish to be the work of hard core terrorists. It appears to be the clumsy handiwork of people interested in distracting investigators and the public from core issues that are threatening to destroy the IPL itself. What a monster the game of cricket has become. Toba. Toba.
