Bengali in Beijing - Indian Idol II

Yeah, I'm still an Akhil fan. But look at this man. He's gone and done it, hasn't he? If he goes higher than bronze, and if he can sell himself well after that once he is in India, this boy's your next big thing. He's got everything a marketing man needs.

Poor Sushil Kumar. No one, absolutely no one, was aware of what he was upto across at the CAU Gymnasium at the Olympic Green. No one. I felt so bloody guilty even going up to him and meeting him afterwards. Indian medallist number two - he will take it, won't he?

Akhil. He's just lost his quarterfinal bout in this picture. But he remains the biggest character of the lot. And still my favourite...
