No pants deserves punishment
Here's a fantastic non sequitur. The Times of India reports that Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi's nephew, Saad Bin Jung, had written in his book that Pataudi had once run in the jungle without his pants on during a tiger alert. And it quotes Dharmesh Solanki, a wildlife activist, as saying:
From the book, it is clear that Pataudi was scared of tigers, which is why he ran for his life without his pants in the forest. He must be punished for illegal hunting.Of course, ToI might well be quoting Solanki out of context, and maybe he didn't mean it that way. But it's still a fine two sentences.
