Indicast # 98: Go Force India Go!

Wednesday, 02 September 2009 14:28 Written by  Published in Indicast
With Force India finishing second in the Belgian Grand Prix, the news was awash with the first "Indian" team to have made it big in the Formula 1 circuit and Aditya in his sarcastic way opines about the so called Indianess of the victory. Back home, the government has rejected to invest in the 2011 Formula 1 track that Vijay Mallya is aiming for on the grounds that Formula 1 is not sport, but entertainment. In other sports news, we had Sania Mirza advancing in the second round of the US open while our cricketer, Harbhajan Singh drove his new Hummer in Chandigarh without a registration number and got fined. In politics, BJP is imploding and Aditya gives us his take on it.

Episode notes

  • BJP fiasco - What's happening out there?
  • Sania Mirza wins first round of US open (Fingers crossed) - Is she INdia's Anna?
  • Designer Anant John gets 59 years term for sex crimes - Typical Page 3 - Makes me wonder if this is an occupational hazard.
  • Bhajji's got a Hummer and it's on the road - WITHOUT a registration number
