What dream ?

Amidst all the bursting and breaking IPL corruption saga, Lalit Modi gets on to the stage, at the IPL Awards om 23rd April, and says "“Seventeen years ago, I had a dream. I want to thank everyone for allowing me to fulfill it,”.

What dream ? Of using a wonderful game, to buy and sell cricketers like cauliflowers, auctioning them ? Making a mockery of business ethics ? Of using his purposefully developed political clout to break rules and acquire assets ? Of introducing a totally unnecessary glamour aspect into cricket, using half clad girls, and parties for the players late at night ? Or was it a dream of acquiring riches untold through IPL, which allowed him to decide who could own teams ?

The Women's Bill stagnates . And Politicians are busy extracting their pound of dough from IPL.

I would rather wait for the results of the investigations.
Modi did not promise to take us all to a religious discourse, A Kirtan .IPL is a business transaction and is being run as a business. Isn't exactly that is how BCCI is being managed.?

We all have different dreams...Modi dreamt of notoriety and money, he fulfilled it...

Well, for some of us, including ST, his dream may be a nightmare, but he was clear about what he wanted, everyone around him was clear that they wanted a pie too. Till the Tweet hit.
