Thackeray Uncle Says
Valuable advice from Thackeray Uncle to all of us useless, free market-loving, politician-hating people.
“These industrialists are throwing money in your cricket field as a result of which cricket is getting corrupt.”
Boy! If only we knew this about 15 years back when the explosion of TV took cricket to every part of the country. We could have stifled the flow of all the dirty money from the profit-hungry industrialists…cricket would have been so much better without the money, no?
“Cricketers are being purchased as a result this their concentration will not be in the game and the sport will decline in this country,” [sic]
That’s right. Money will ruin the game. Look at what happened to football in England, Spain and other countries as a result of their successful domestic leagues where players are bought and sold like vegetables. All that the players do is run after the money and not the all important ball. Such losers. And the worse thing is, the leagues are still doing well. Talk about money making the world go round.
“If this is how industrialists wield their money then a day will come when there will be no need of government because it will be the industrialists who will call the shots and run the country,”
Wow! Really? You mean, NO Government? As in, no politicians? No bandhs? No bad infrastructure? No bureaucracy? No family politics? No lalu? No KCR? No commies? I shudder at that thought because all this means no free-of-cost entertainment on news channels. Which in turn would mean that people like me would have to start watching bad movies in cinema halls, and, worse, pay for it! And who gets all that money? That’s right, them industrialists! How shrewd, how cunning. But fear not, ‘coz we have Thackeray uncle taking good care of us.
Thank you for enlightening us Thackeray uncle.
