Rakhi Ka Swayamvara
Ok...I know that those of you who are not clued into reality TV in India are wondering, what on earth?!?? after reading this title...but hang on...remember Rakhi Sawant from all those cheesy (bordering on cheap) music videos where she strutted her stuff against the shocking pink and electric blue backdrops...yeah..its all coming back to you now, isn't it??? the deal is this...Ms. Sawant is finally taking the plunge into marital bliss... However Rakhi always finds novel ways to entertain the populace at which she is now a certified professional. She has decided to go and find herself a groom through the process of Swayamvara on national television and the folks at NDTV have been ever so kind to allow her to use their network to find the love of her life...so sweet of them...aawwww!!! Now this is no cheap trick she is pulling on her audience/fans. Its a very scientific process, where men wishing to get married to Rakhi have to register themselves with the show. Rakhi would then choose 15 chaps of her liking, and would stay with them under one roof. During this time, she will give her prospective grooms various tasks to perform and those who fail these tasks obviously have to take a bow. The final week will see Rakhi marrying the groom of her choice. And since she would be getting married at the end of the show, she even would be attempting to get acquainted to the families of these participants-so thoughtful! Now this is what I call fultoo entertainment... In the words of Ms. Sawant " Mein jo bhi hu, TV ke vajah se hu...Jo bhi mere paas hai, woh TV ne diya hai...agar mein shaadi karungi, toh woh bhi TV ke zariye karungi" Waah waahh Rakhiji, kya khoob kahi hai aapne!!! Here is wishing Rakhi Sawant, All the best and may the best man win!
