The Little Mongoose


Jabse aarambh hua hai the IPL3, there is one soul getting more mileage than even Shahrukh Khan and Preity Zinta (sorry to say Shilpa Shetty falling wayyyy behind)….this little innocent miracle, being a piece of wood- a cricket bat to be precise…..although jaageer of the Chennai Super Kings….. so much has been the hype surrounding it by the entire country….with every analysis made on its ‘unique’ shape, size and features……. that the poor bat itself is starting to cave into the pressure…….it must be thinking…..sab ghoor ghoor ke dekh rahe hai….mummyyy!

Now I was wondering what the inspiration behind this little creation may have been, and here’s 3 things I worked out…

1- Harry Potter- Yes you read it right…..and no I’m not crazy and sleep talking…..arey pehle sun to lo……the bat manufacturing wala’s probably saw Harry Potter and were influenced by his broom ‘The Thunderbolt’…Kya Adaa, Kya Jalwe tere Harry!…..and thought…..hey C’mon let’s create a bat like that…...course the short and geeky Harry had to be replaced by the burly and macho Hayden….in case you didn’t notice dono ka name also starts with ‘H’…..See! Maine to pehle hi kaha tha!

2- Gilli danda- Know what gilli danda is?......miniature version of cricket…this is what the batwaala’s must have imagined…..even you can close your eyes and imagine…..I mean pehle read, then close your eyes……Ok here- Ishaant Sharma is running, running…..and you can hear the sound chan chan chan…..nooo its not the sound of some purani haveli ke bhoot ki paayal (mad or what!)…..its the chains he wears…..haa so anyway he’s running, running and zoom comes the gilli to our burly Hayden…..matlab our modern hero who can say cool accent main ‘Yo dude, Wassup dude’…. wearing a yellow kurta pajama…(kurta tucked into the pajama…tol u na he’s modern)….holding the danda and fatakkkk…..he tosses the gilli seema rekha ke us paar!!!!!!!.......Uff dho daala……yes time out….come out of the imagination as did the batwaala’s…. and thus created this magical bat.

3- Rajnikanth!!- I’m a Chennai wali….How can I not mention this?.......probably inspired from Rajni Anna when they saw his movie…….they must have seen him ghumaao his dupatta itna isstyle se… then with one stick do 25 mushtandaa log ka dhulaai single handedly……if one stick can do so much damage then how much is the scope of a mongoose bat with a finer blade and scientific design ?....So that’s how the revolution came……thoda cinema, thoda mathematics and thoda science tooroorurururuuuuuuuu……..latest invention tayyar!

Bas itne hi ideas coming to mind as of now…….will think some more as when I get bored of studying….and if you are also jobless then even you can think and tell me…

Last words- For people wise enough to call a spade a spade, maybe you should just call a bat a bat. It’s not thaaat big a deal!
