Mulberry bush

No, this has nothing to do with any person ;-)

Every cricketing series/season the BCCI starts the process for awarding the telecast rights of the matches at home. There is a *big* tug-of-war every single time with one company coming out on top by a very single margin over the other. And invariably, it would not be Doordarshan (DD).

DD will keep quiet, till couple of days before the match starts and suddenly file a lawsuit in a state high court - immediately, the HC will grant a interim-stay and BCCI will move an emergency appeal in the SC to vacate the stay and ultimately, the SC will rule that DD will carry the 'signals' and God knows whether the telecast companies (with the exception of DD) really lived happily ever after.

The next season, the whole damning cycle starts.

I am the last person on the earth to be sympathetic to DD covering the series - the quality simply sucks high time. BUT they could atleast be granted the telecast rights ?

In a country where cricket is a religion, should not the state-run, free channel, be allowed to telecast ?

BTB, if you still are trying to figure out what this topic has to do with mulberry bush ? - hmmmm - think what the children do when the sing the rhyme ? - run around in circles ;)
