Indian Patang League

Genre: Humour

First came the Premier Hockey League (PHL), which was followed by cricket's Indian Premier League and now from this November, its gonna be Indian Tennis League (ITL). However coming next January to beat them all will be the Indian Patang League - the world's ultimate kite-flying competition.

According to the details chalked out, the event will comprise of eight teams of eight players each with a maximum of two foreign players allowed per team. Also, every team will have to include atleast two under-12 players. The experienced kite-flyers will be auctioned to the highest bidder. The response to the League has been outstanding and already three teams have registered themselves for the innaugral season- Kal-kaata Kite Riders, Dheel-de Daredevils and Maanjabhai Indians.

The kite-flying matches will be held across eight cities in India with the Finals in Ahmedabad. All teams will have to participate in one daytime match and one night match which will test their kandeel flying skills. For the entertainment of the crowds, cheerleaders will be present at all venues and will dance on garba tunes every time a kite is cut. The player cutting maximum number of opponent's kites will be awarded the Orange Firki after every match. Global Bids have been invited for Exclusive Advertising rights on the back sides of patangs and on sides of firkis. Official Indian Patang League merchandise including team kites, firki, maanjha and other accesories can be bought from www.indianpatangleague.kaun

When informed about this league, Vijay Mallya said, "Yes, I very much intend to buy a team and this time I will myself select all players. I have decided the name of my team as well- Firki Force India Royal Challengers." All attempts to contact Mukeshbhai have yielded no reply. His secretary, however, informed us that Mukeshbhai is busy on the terrace apperently practising how to shout "Kaaypo Chhe..."

    No boss... you forgot reading a few lines

    Quoting verbatim from Lines 21-22:
    "For the entertainment of the crowds, cheerleaders will be present at all venues and will dance on garba tunes every time a kite is cut."

    PS: Nice to see you back after a long time. Were you under extensive POH?

  2. I hope the cheer-"bens" will be wearing chaniya cholis, since mini skirts are totally against indian culture.

  3. @Zai

    Lol!! Cheer"bens" will definitely be in Chaniya-Cholis.. and only "chhas" willbe served to VIP Guests- how can you even think of drinking beer while flying kites?

  4. First of all an excellent place to hold the finals...Ahmedabad...i just cant wait to see "cheer bens" in chaniya cholis!!!-;)
    But Mr Mallya will have problems hosting his parties coz Gujarat is a dry state so no alcohol-;)
    Mr Mukesh Ambani will himself captain his team...he being a gujju will be an expert in kite flying...on seeing this Anil bhai will also jump to the bandwagon and both will be busy shouting "lapet" to each other as they do so in real life also-;)

  5. @karan: yeah man.. rather extensive POH which left me devastated!

    btw, dont you think you could be contributing to the meagre footfalls in my blog ;)
