I loved this line in a piece on the Shashi Tharoor-Lalit Modi :

At the end of the day this is not about any individual but about the nexus of sports, business, and politics. Lalit Modi has raised questions; like it or not, answers must be forthcoming.

That’s like saying Lalu Prasad Yadav brought the plight of cattle into limelight. No ?


May I also add that anyone who has issues with the nexus between sports (read cricket), business and politics shouldn’t be watching cricket. And unless you’re a newborn, don’t act surprised when you discover it.
