Never before in my life have I heard that stripping in public is a way to demonstrate one's patriotism.
Meet Poonam Pandey - the wannabe model who had promised to strip in full public view if India won the World Cup. Interestingly, she's nowhere to be seen since the victory. But she does manage to give sound bytes every once in a while.
First she said she wanted to strip inside the stadium right after the final. That obviously didn't go down well with the moral police. Then she said she was willing to strip inside the players' dressing room given BCCI's permission. The BCCI didn't agree, so now she's considering Paris as the venue!
Les pauvres Français! Thanks to their lassez faire culture, they now have to watch some C-grade model bare all.
What amuses me the most though is how she keeps insisting that stripping is not a publicity stunt but her way of showing her patriotism. Like...how? Next she'll say that she wants to sleep with all the cricketers who were part of the winning team one by one! As a way to show her love for her nation, of course.
I guess it takes all kinds.
