Paglar Baba helped us win - Bashar

PTI Reports from Dhaka:

Bangladesh Cricket Captain Habibul Bashar paid glowing tributes to Paglar Baba following the team's maiden ODI and test-series triump. Talking to the reporters here at Bangabandhu National Stadium which officially hosted its last cricket match with the fifth one-day international between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe yesterday, Bashar mentioned, among the reasons for the great fightback by the BD team, the blessings of Paglar Baba.

"Immediately after our second loss, we visited Paglar Baba's Mazaar and blessed ourself with the holy water. Babar Mazarer Pani Purao" quipped the BD captain in a fluent mix of English and Bangla.

Bashar was delighted with the victory and was full of praise for Aftab, Rafique and all of BD spinners who played a big part in the turn of fortune after the team was staring down the barrel following the consecutive losses to the Zimbabwe team.

Paglar Baba Zindabad. :joy:

This is only for fun, it is not a true news report.

Is is possible Rafique took double dose of the 'Pagla Babar Pani Pora'?

He looked over energized off the field as well as on the field. (The way he slogged the ball with his bat:lol:)

Can we supply some to the END team just before the game? BD players are somewhat resistant to diarrhea but ENG players? I don't think so....

"pagla baba" is the generic name for all "baba"s

Hey DJ, here's a quote for you, I posted this in another place but it seems more appropriate in your case;

"Never argue with and idiot, he'll bring you down to his level and beat you with experience"

And it does seem that you have a wealth of experience, from reading all your 'Paglar Baba' nonsense.

OffCutter,

I'll take your suggestion and will remember NOT to argue with you.

Did Basher mention what our PM KZia wanted to know calling him immediately after the team crushed Zimbabwe? Was that for the address of PB so that she can take blessing for saving her party from the Jamati Tuk-tak?

Good one offcutter. Is it just me or does anyone else find DJ Shastras's comments condescending?

"Dj, funny how of all the people, you are the one who brought up paglar baba. Does make me wonder."

Tehsin,

It was Shovon who used the phrase "Paglar Babar Mazarer Pani Pura_o" or something like that after the 2nd ODI and was also kind enough to translate it for me.

And i found it quite cool. In fact, i love it.

It is indeed unfortunate that some of the members don't find it cool.

DJ's been posting these annoying little 'paglar baba' nonsense for the past few days. He's making fun of BD's recent success. He made this one up.

Hey DJ, you oughta have enough between the ears to realize when to quit, when a joke is not amusing anymore. Shovon's remark was witty and timely and most in this forum found it to be so. Yours on the other hand has become old, almost like a cliche. It is bordering on being offensive now. You sound like Navjot Singh Sidhu when you keep bringing up 'paglar baba.'

Come up with something orignal.

Couger,

You must be sick.

I have better things in life than to waste time making fun of any team. I have NEVER mad fun of BD team, even during heated exchanges with the members of this board.

The "Paglar Baba" thing was in a lighter vein, In fact, i am astonished to see how you can take it as making fun of BD team. I don't know how anyone can make fun of a team that just foughtback to come from 0-2 down to win the series.

I don't know why am i even bothering to answer you. Damn!

Couger,

Your objection noted. I can't claim that i am an expert on understnding what is funny and what is offensive, since there are cultural barriers. If i mentioned "Paglar Babar" a numerous time, it was only because I LIKED using the term and not because i expected everyone to like it or everyone to fall in love with it.

And i think i am well within my rights to do that (post what i like) on this board.

Hasib,

Only Shovon can answer who is "Paglar Baba", but i think it is some famous fictional/real saintly character with some divine/magical power to bless. I think Baba = Saint or Elderly/Old Man as in "Fakir" or someone.

So, next time Bashar and his boys should take a shower of that holly water to keep "holly luck" in favor for long.
Damn! they should do that before India series held just couple of months ago!!!.

Some of the posters have completely misunderstood DJ's posts. Please make sure that you actually read some of his older posts to get a sense of what he is trying to convey.


Once again, I have to mention, some of the members here are so overly sensitive of comments made about the BD team, that they jump on the "he is making fun of BD so lets badmouth him" bandwagon. Please try to use the stuff between your ears, before actually hitting the post button.

DJ, keep up the good work on learning Bangla. You are indeed getting good at it, though at times things are lost in translation......;)

DJ,

Yes you ARE within your rights. But lets turn the table here for a second then you'll understand where I'm coming from. Let say the Indian team does great against Pakistan in the upcoming tour and I keep saying this is because they bathed in the Holy Ganges. Once or twice would be OK. But after that it would not be funny anymore, right?

Then again we all have our crossed to bare. So, no problem, carry on.

I enjoyed your other posts-especially the one comparing India's first ever test win with that of Bangladesh's, even though I didn't agree with a lot of it.
