Those of whom who watched Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) would have seen a guy coming from a Rs. 1 crore prize money to Rs. 3.2 lakhs in a jiffy!
It is an amazing story of luck vs. skill. I keep telling this to my class – if you are standing in the Melbourne pitch with a bat in your hand, and Brett Lee bowls to you, it is possible that the ball hits the bat and goes to the fence for a four. However for the next ball also to go to the fence, you need talent. Luck cannot take the second ball to the fence!
I only have a ‘heard’ view of KBC – I was on facebook in a different room. My daughter’s version (and substantiated by another girl in the office) was Prashant Batar was behaving like a…well…not very smart guy during the whole process of playing the game. Even what he spoke to Deepika Padukone was stupid..and she was good enough to laugh it off.
This guy through a combination of fluke, luck, guts, …had reached a figure of Rs. 100 lakhs (Rs. 1 crore)..and then he came to a question where he had no clue as to what to do. At this stage did he consider the odds? Did he even ponder to think what he could have done? Should he have taken the ‘risk’…well we can keep debating with hind sight.
However his father, Mr. Amitabh Bachhan, Mr. Ajit Ranade….all advised him against this hara kiri…but he did succumb..and took home Rs. 3.2 lakhs instead of Rs. 1 crore!…hmmm
Reminds me of the ‘man in the green room’ or ‘man in the green towel’ Las Vegas story on risk…heard this story of a man on his honeymoon?
If no…we will hear it ..on another day…
