The  Hari Putar Dialogues - 3

(The Tribune, New Delhi, April 29
After facing heat over cheergirls, the Indian Premier League (IPL) is now under the scanner of union health minister Anbumani Ramadoss who criticized the cricket body for allegedly promoting liquor through surrogate advertisements at their cricket matches.)

Putar: The Tribune headlines today said that the Health Minister is upset about the promotion of liquor during the cricket matches.

Hari: That's right, putar. 

Putar: A Faridabad resident filed a case saying that a cricket team should not be allowed to play under the name 'Royal Challengers' as it promoted the sale of Royal Challenge.

Hari: That's true, putar.

Putar: But the Supreme Court dismissed that petition.

Hari: That's true, putar.

Putar: Earlier the politicians were upset over American style cheerleaders.

Hari: That's true, putar ' but don't forget we later had our Indian style cheerleaders as well.

Putar: Did the politicians object to the dress of the American style cheergirls?

Hari: I guess so, putar.

Putar: Or was it because of the way they jumped up and down?

Hari: I don't know, putar.

Putar: But everyone was happy with our Indian style cheerleaders who were more soberly dressed.

Hari: That's true, putar.

Putar: Tell me something papaji?

Hari: Bol, putar?

Putar: The cheergirls are supposed to encourage the teams, aren't they?

Hari: That's right, putar.

Putar And raise their spirits in every way.

Hari: That's right, putar.

Putar But what if'

Hari: Go ahead, putar.

Putar What if they shouted 'Cheers!' papaji. 

Hari: I don't know, putar.
