Mr Mahendra's papa
Bad analogy of the year coming up. A PTI report about Ranbir Singh Mahendra, the president of the BCCI, instituting an enquiry into the Indian team's performance contains the following lines:
[O]n the subject of the captain, Sourav Ganguly, Mahendra said: "no judgment should be made in the midst of an ongoing series. You cannot sideline your parents just because they are old."Heh. And here's some old perspective on the relationship between Mahendra and Ganguly. Is Mr Mahendra planning to get patricidal, by any chance? Or is Ganguly's protector, Jaggu Dalmiya, the big daddy of them all?
