Rafiq bhai, that has to be the best comic relief I have read in years! if not my whole life.....absolutely classic. Now I am going to take it up a notch and email it to a few of my friends...haha (dont worry, I'll link back to BC, so they will find out eventually)

Rafiq bhai: With all due respect, it would have been a comic relief if it was a totally improbable scenario for us. However, as we know, all of it CAN happen with us. Besides, your partisan tone here made it even more tasteless. Please try again, better luck next time.

- Are you serious??!!! if yes, this is even bigger comic relief than Rafiq's.

BTW, I agree with Dr. Z's suggestion to put Rafiq's into a BC Hall of Fame.
I kept uttering 'Sunnova.." as was reading thru the post. I thought Brian Lara was too harsh after reading his 'statement'.

The irony is, as someone mentioned already, this scenario, no matter how crazy it seems, is entirely possible in the current dysfunctional socio-political situation in countries like Bangladesh and Pakistan.

It's pleasant surprise, given the state of politics in BD, scenarios like that has not happened already.

I second that. We should have a classic thread section. My jaws dropped to the floor reading the first two paragraphs. I realized it is a joke after reading BanglaWicket lol.

rafiq,

You should move west, towards HOLLYWOOD.....

Hey, not a bad idea, trust me. There is always shortage of creativity over there ....

If you think that place is too fast, try DOLLYWOOD!!

Nope, I am not a hokie. Had driven close to it often - and drove away fast. And, yes - I am too old for uni
