Sorry but the post has been deleted. Another one bites the dust.

Will hopefully be more careful before indulging in controversial and chauvinistic views. Sorry for all the trouble caused.


BCCI--Board Of Cash And Confusion Of India

Politics World Cricket | By Aditya | 2008 Trackbacks (0) Add comment   

Following the ouster of Zimbabwe from ICC, articles about the ICC's decision have been doing the rounds and this one takes the cake.

Statement from a BCCI spokesperson:
"We have always supported Zimbabwe cricket and have nothing to do with the political situation there," a senior BCCI official told Cricinfo. "In fact, we are a bit surprised that the issue has been brought up once again since the ICC board had discussed this last year and decided clearly that politics and cricket can't be mixed. The BCCI believes that a country's politics and its cricket don't go together. There is no reason to change our stand now."

Politics and cricket don't go together huh? In that case, how come the country's agricultural minister is the president of the BCCI?

Chaos Theory??

Its crazy how the NEWS could be so irrelevant and absolutely unnecessary. How could an interview about a movie be National Headlines, or how could a blog by an actor about his new film be Ground Breaking News??

I was channel surfing the other day, and I saw the 'TOP STORIES' on HEADLINES TODAY, it was that Harmaan Baweja doesn't want to be compared to Hrithik Roshan!! 'BREAKING NEWS' on India TV was that Barrack Obama has a pendant of a Hindu deity. Then the worst... an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW of Rakhee Sawant. Aaaaaaaaaaargh!! I hate her and to give her air-time during the headlines slot is murder!

What the hell happened to regional, national and international news that didn't involve celebrities? Are we to believe that only celebrities create news? One channel shows Kareena's love saga with Saif while another gives in depth coverage about Salman's new game show. Throw them all out the window and show some real news.

The worst thing about these so called 'News' channels is that there's nothing goddamned new about them anyway. The same story is recycled over and over and over again, and then again! The same old graphics, tele - correspondents, live correspondents, and studio anchors over and over till your brain is ingrained with their dressing sense. How many times have we seen a studio anchor speak on the telephone to some correspondent in and not have them hear him/her? Theres always this blank dumbass look that the correspondent has when he hasn't heard the studio anchor. The look doesn't go away either, as he/she drags on an on about who did . Who cares? Get the real news from the people that really matter!

Who are the people that really matter, you ask? If I knew that, then hell, I would be owner of my own show, now wouldn't I? But I do know, that I don't care if Aamir calls Shahrukh a dog, RGV hails Amitabh as the greatest actor on the planet or if Anil Kapoor gifts a fat-free, sugar-less cake to his daughter!! (Yes people, that was actually on the news).

HEADLINES TODAY really takes the cake. There was a news item last week involving a lot of screen graphics, media 'footage' and demographics (surveys of the populace's opinion) on, wait for it, the SIMILARITY between Shah Rukh Khan and Ronaldinho!!!!!!!!! How can you compare a Bollywood superstar to a football superstar???? Here are the similarities in a nutshell, so you don't have to watch the inevitable retelecast of the same shit.

1. Both are human.

Thats it! There isn't anything else. But noooooo! The dumbass reporter (and I use this term loosely here) actually came forward to say that while SRK was the king of Bollywood, Ronaldinho was the king of Football. You don't say??!!! I would never have known that if you hadn't told me. Now I can get on with my miserable, pointless existence knowing fully well the similarities between an actor and a sportstar. TOTAL  BULLSHIT!

Stop throwing useless statistics and fancy computer graphics in an overcrowded screen. Take a cue from DD. Remember the old news show, where they had ONE studio anchor and one inset picture of a lady miming out the news for the benefit of the deaf? Am I supposed to think that somehow the number of deaf people watching TV has drastically decreased in the last ten years? Man, I wish I were deaf so I didn't have to listen to their senseless drivel. Wait a minute, I wish THEY were dumb so they couldn't spout their venom on screen.

Newsbytes are the latest things now. Little bits of irrelevant information that have no bearing on the outcome of anything important, are continously scrolled at the bottom of the screen so as to be highly efficient and useful to the legions of couch potatoes who don't have anything else to watch. Stick to the newspaper, I say. Atleast you can do the sudoku or the crossword in it.

The Indian Point Of View!
