Saw Indian Idol on Sony. I was stumped when I realised that they hadn't visited any Southern cities. So went on a self introspection journey and came up with some excuses or reasons for it.
1.They thought South Indians couldn't sing or win.
(Too dramatic and silly)
2.They didnt say South Indians couldn't participate. Southies could have come to other cities.
(Of course, those from Ahmedabad can't travel to Mumbai, but those from Chennai can travel to Mumbai).
3.They thought since no one sees Sony down South why bother.
4.Hey the regional TV channels have their own contests.
(Though they wouldn't dare to call their programme Indian Idol and omit Delhi)
5.In American Idol, the program goes to all the states in USA. The program is not called USA Idol but American Idol.
Canada is in the American continent. But the Canadians haven't protested against the show and asked the program to come to Canada also, have they?
Hmmm now I think I understand :)
