A friend in need can be a spouse indeed!

There are certain things in life which defy logic but are inevitable. Baffling, yet unavoidable, if you know what I mean.

Like unsuspectingly stepping on the lone banana skin on the pavement as if a matter of destiny.

Like the penchant among taps to run dry, a phenomenon preceded by a humiliating gurgling sound, just after you have worked up an admirably rich lather all over your face.

Like the irresistible urge in certain quarters to taste Hari Mirch Pakoda – a palatable weapon of mass destruction -- despite knowing that the nearest available drop of H20 is some 5 kms away.

Like a malfunctioning MUTE button on your cell when the all-important meeting is well into its first quarter.

Like running into a rare traffic police at the signal you have jumped with impunity more often than Sergei Bubka has jumped in his entire career.

Like I said earlier, logic-defying yet unavoidable.

Like Himesh Reshammiya, if you know.

To cut it short, Mohammad Asif is the latest victim of the fatal attraction that draws a moth to the fire and a cricketer towards an actress.

Veena Malik, the actress, apparently stood by Asif in his seconds, minutes and hours of crises, bearing expenses of all his legal battles.

A friend in need can be a spouse indeed!

SP, when you have someone ready to sponsor the expense of every crisis you create for yourself, why mend your way?

SP, just pray the partnership endures:)

NC, then he needs some opium and an airport detention centre :)

Ottayan, I think cricketers and actors revel in a make-belief world and that explains their dangerous liaisons.

Q said...

wow that's news to me.. who is Veena Malik anyway?

And well said SP.. even a greater crisis I think!

Som said...

Q, not much clue about who is Veena Malik. I gather she is a small time actress and a TV host.

Crciketers are entitled to their private life marriage is marriage whether to an actress or a commoner.

My only concern is why PCb is naming him for champions trophy without testing his fitness and form.

Som said...

Wasim, like anyone else they are free to marry anyone of their choice. I simply have no problem with that. But it's quite a common trend and Asif is the latest to join the brigade.

In the western world it's a common trend and is not considered bad but in Pakistan we castigate the players for such activities because of religious and cultural norms, I think marriage oe flings with women should have no bearing on actual performance, but the problem starts if players become out of control like Akhtar.

I don't think Asif deserves another chance but if he makes a come back and stays away from drugs and focuses on his fitness that will be a huge achievement.

I feel it will be a bit too much to expect from him, but I guess we will have to wait and watch.

Som said...

Wasim, I don't consider it bad either. Any cricketer is free to marry the person of their choice. Just because they are cricketers doesn't make them lesser man.

I just was trying to sound funny about a common phenomenon in cricket.

Regarding Asif, this is clearly his last go at salvation. I'm not sure about his match fitness but he is too good a bowler to be wasted like that. For the rest of his life, Asif should be indebted to the selectors who picked him despite knowing that it won't make them any popular.
