Progression

First we had the oldest profession in the world. Then we had a milder version of it in the form of court dancers. Then we had heroines in Indian films. Then we had the incpmparable dance bars. The latest entrant is Mandira Bedi.

Last night , in the post-match vetti pechu, Mandira made a big blunder, but any (male) viewer would have hardly noticed because he would have been focusing his attention on her midriff [in any case i was]. On the contrary, it was Charu Sharma who reacted as if he had committed the blunder while our Mandira had the same solid, confident, unflustered 'dance bar' look!
Also, the difference between the postures of the lady commentator some Simmonds and Mandira was obvious, if you noticed. The question is, why did they ban dance bars?

  • Was that Donna Simmonds? During the 1988-89 India West indies series, an indian listener trying to catch the broadcast kept running into a woman's voice - it took a long while for him to figure out that Donna was part of the commentary panel along with Gary Sobers.
