5 Star Mess [283/365]

Nothing is so strong as gentleness, and nothing is so gentle as real strength.
— Ralph W. Sockman 


So the past year has been really bad for Mr Mallya.
India's flamboyant billionaire risks loosing his equally flamboyant airline after piling up billions of dollars in losses.
While his airline has been grounded for the past 10 days after a partial lockout, his woes have increased.
The DGCA has asked him why they should not cancel the airline's license after critical ground support staff have struck work after not been paid salaries for the past seven months.

Following resignations of several high profile employees in the upper management, on Friday one of the staffer's wife committed suicide after not being able to put up money for her son's studies abroad. WOW! Farmer suicides are passe. Who cares about them anyway? But when you are unable to send your child to study abroad, sure. That is a new low for our nation. Poonam Pandhey, take note.

If you ask me, I know Mallya is going to come out of this mess that he walked into.
The clues lie in the lessons he's learned. Inheriting his father's business at the tender age of 29, he has made Kingfisher what it is today. From spirits to real estate, Formula 1 to a T20 Cricket team, he has done it all. He has sprawling penthouses in all four continents and every motoring luxury known to mankind.
He will definitely need to pull a rabbit out of the hat to save his airline and keep his liquor business. With the airline loosing all of its value, its lenders can neither seize the leased aircrafts nor allow the airline to die. The fact that the government has allowed his airline to fly all these years speak of the incredible clout that Mallya yields in the upper echelons of Delhi.

While it looks apparent that Mallya is not going to save the airline from his pocket, the next couple of days will reveal if he is ready to loose his airline to keep his title of liquor baron intact. The lenders are thin on patience and the time is running out for Mallya to act.


Interestingly, for a company that is known for its calenders Kingfisher sure hasn't kept any of the dates it promised to pay salaries on.

Born naked. Living Horny

Making her Parents mighty proud!
Two Weeks ago, a nondescript model googled herself (like many other self obsessed nincompoops do) only to find that she is not what she thought she was- Famous.

That's when in a bolt of creative (or absolutely mundane) thought inspired her to announce to India and the world about her plans to strip for the Indian Cricket team if they win the World Cup.

Well, Poonam Pandey, Bravo! Well done. How inspiring! How original! How so Indian!

Well, the Indian team may have had women who would've been a guzillion times hotter, smarter strip and do other favors for them (in private) a thousand times already.

So they could have clearly not fallen for this. But a billion other men in India and some thousands around the world would have salivated at the tantalizing thought! They may have already made plans to watch it in YouTube and Torrents!

However, as fate would have it India did win the World Cup. Not for the country but for Sachin. But nonetheless, we won. Fair and square.

'Where the hell is Poonam Pandey?' The day after, FB was ablaze. All those elaborate plans to watch the smuggled clips of a naked lady gone down the drain. If there ever was a dampener to all the excitement, her no show was it.

You got your 15 minutes or more, of fame. But few pivotal questions, Ms Pandey.

How did you imagine our Cricket team needed a certain B grade Calender girl like you to strip to perform?
If Cricket was your passion, why didn't you strip in the last World Cups?
And finally, any reason why you chose Cricket and not Tennis? Where incidentally, Leander and Mahesh did win their Doubles and is placed World number 1. Well, they played for India and not for themselves or each other.

In a country where Cricket and Bollywood unite people in a way where religion and a million plus gods couldn't, you, Ms Pandey said the right thing. Or like the locals would say; "Ekdum first class choice"

But little did you know we would win and you'd have to make lame ass excuses to why you wouldn't want to strip. Smart move.

Well, it is easy to bet against a team when the team has been performing badly for decades. She never knew India would win, after all they hadn't won in decades. PP didn't expect India to win either.

We won! And in the first few hours after we won, none of us thought of you. None of us even remembered you. It was our victory and our moment in glory. We partied, we danced and we savored our win.
While you went into hiding and wished you could've turned back time.
But you've earned a nation's contempt and a million dollars worth of PR for free.

2 weeks on, you are still giving us reasons why you said you'll strip and (indirectly) how it is your birth right. So you were born nude. So you've made the men (with the exception of a few) of an entire nation drool and the women cringe in pity at your PR stunt. But you'll forever go down in history as the first (probably not the last) bimbo who promised to strip and never showed up.

Nudity is not vulgarity, says Ms PeePee.
Thats only if you're shedding it for your husband/boyfriend or in your case, a Producer/Director.

Bring It On.
