Cheers to the IPL!!!

A blog's supposed to show light upon everyday occurances, and not bring about buried history. With that note, i've got to post about the IPL, of which i must admit, am a huge fan.
Controversies galore, Sachin Tendulkar's stubborn stay out of the show, Brendon M'cullum's astounding 158 not out, ordering the cheerleaders to cover up, and lastly, Indian cricket's most erratic duo face off, causing one in tears and the other in trouble - If that's not a lot of things in a week, then nothing is!
Of all the biz and the buzz, I was particularly drawn to the cheerlearders' strange appearance under the scanner. Pathetic politicians are and they prove it once again. As Padamsee puts it, they are just waiting to munch upon a recent out of the way occurence to hog the limelight.
Which brings me to tell my point: Cheerleaders are meant to bring excitement, and activity to an already enthusiastic crowd, a sort of steroids to a fully fit sprinter. I might seem funny, but i've got to tell, has the hormonal secretion of men gone down?
Just look at them. One look - All size zeros, without the need to attract attention to it (Ahem! Kareena...). They are pompous; They are really conscious of nothing but what they've been instructed to do, which includes what they wear. What they wear is the designers' fault, and they've got nothing to do with it. A group of innocent glam-dolls, and do they need to be told off?!
Think twice, all men who read this!!!
And one more thing - If these girls are wearing less, which brings me to one more thing - Look at the camera angles which these girls are focussed upon: Though a treat for the adolescent, but still, Mr.Cameraman... Watch out - You'd be the next...
One more thing again - If these girls are wearing less, then what about Bipasha Basu? Or Mallika Sherawat? Or Esha Deol? Or Rakhi Sawant? Or... Gosh i'm really running out of time typing those, and what am i doing?!!!

People, you've got to realize all are at fault here, and the world is experiencing post-modern developments at a faster rate, which means we still have even the conservative among us, let alone the modern. One word of caution to them - Don't induce your conservative thoughts to your kids or grandkids...
They can't survive tomorrow!!!

You know bro, i want that to happen too, and that's exactly what i meant. But, you know, i'm just (hem hem) 16, so i can't be blunt enough to say (hem hem) the people who can't enjoy it are not exactly young (This time too, i can't summon the gut to write "ball less") ;)

Was that a review of IPL on the whole or only the glamour girls. Sorry for mixing up issues, buddy -on reading your blogs on Sivaji and IPL, I feel your endorsing the IPL extravaganza as a contradiction to your criticism of the marketing of Sivaji The Boss magnum opus. I am not a major fan of Shankar though.. I could not sit through any of his movies including Indian ( the hardcore Kamal fan that I am ). Well, movie makers are bound to do that to make an extrabuck at any given opportunity.. On the contrary I dont approve of the emergence of the Cheerleader culture in Cricket. I think it neither adds any value to the game nor does it evoke any excitement which is the USP for such glitterati.

Be it moral or immoral, the cheerleader controversy has only been approached from the angle of them wearing scanty clothes, and not from the angle that they are a diversion from the cricket being played. That's what is obvious from the fact that the chennai cheerleaders are appreciated, because they wear tracksuits. If clothes were a case, then i think actresses like Bipasha Basu, Mallika Sherawat, and Rakhi Sawant ought to be banned from standing in front of the camera, or perform in any awards ceremony, as they are a diversion from the course of the movie, and what am i saying!!!
Hindi movies have no stories, and i'm sorry for having used the word story regardind hindi movies...
I think i should be banned from blogging ever again!!!
