Sania Malik?

Posted by Joe on March 30, 2010

Well well well.
Even though I think public and press should stay away from the private life of public figures, I can’t help but wonder about Sania Mirza getting engaged to Shoaib Malik.

If this engagement proceeds to marriage, that would be the pinnacle of Sania Mirza’s career.
Yes I didn’t commit a spelling mistake. Who cares about Sania Mirza’s tennis career anyways?

Personally, I followed Sania Mirza when she was an innocent 16 year old teenager, who paired up with Leandar Paes and won Asia cup mixed doubles gold for india. After that, her rise has been pretty meteorological. She kept on being in the front of press, more for putting her legs before Indian flag, than winning any tournaments, which she hardly did any.

Yes she won a grandslam with Mahesh Bhupati, and she has beaten Martina Hingis once. But for the fame and the number of advertisements she appeared in, her contributions to sport is pretty stingy.

I was not able to understand the hullabaloo around her ‘cos Mahesh Bhupati and Leandar Paes kept on winning grand slams after grand slams one after another.

I dont think she did enough to tennis as PT Usha did to athletics or Saina Nehwal did to Badmitton. Still the only thing is Sania Mirza is better looking than the other two and she was able to act as a bitch (sorry girls :)) when required.

By the way I wanted to write about this issue, as this issue will definitely bring up lot many issues including feminism.

Dont believe me?
Do you remember how Indians cheered when Sunny Deol who is an Indian eloped with Amisha Patel who is a Paki in the movie Gadar: Ek prem katha.
Now is the perfect role reversal. A guy from Pakistan is going to marry a girl from India.
I don’t think Indians will support this marriage as they did with Gadar: Ek prem katha.

The next thing is Indo-Pak peace talks.

Think about it. If Gandhiji brought up a decree saying that all Indians should marry a Pakistani only, then most probably we will stop fighting with Pakistan. ‘cos it will be like fighting your own Mom or Dad.

Sania, by starting inter country marriage, has definitely started a new peace process in the correct path 😉
