Uma Bharti makes an interesting guest on Harsha Online

The guest last night on Harsha Online, the candid interview show hosted by Harsha Bhogle on Star Sports, was none other than Uma Bharti. And this time around, Bhogle pulled out a mix of questions, which dealt with some rather interesting aspects of sports.

So while there where questions regarding controversial issues such as whether the Afro-Asian games were a concoction to help soothe the dented ego of Indian sport at similar games, why we have slid to such depths in hockey and is it a problem with our athletes or our federations and authorities, and why the Indo-Pak cricket is the first to be stopped whenever there is any tension, there were futuristic questions as well, such as whether India is seriously thinking of hosting the Olympics.

Answering the question on why the Indo-Pak cricket is the first to be stopped whenever there is any tension, Bharti replied, “When the time of peace comes then even cricket will have its role, but looking at the situation of both the countries today, how can we expect both the countries to play together. I say this because cricket is not just a sport anymore, and especially a match between India and Pakistan, since it becomes an expression of ones sentiments as well.”

Although this time, there were a lesser number of personal questions on the show, Bhogle couldn’t help putting forth one personal question to Bharti. The question dealt with how Bharti balanced being a sadhvi and dealt with the realities of a crucial ministerial portfolio, to which she replied, “Being a sadhvi is a very personal thing and every sadhvi is doing some work or the other, I am not like the sadhus in the Himalayas and I really like politics because I can work and help others. I feel that even today ministers are treated like kings by everyone and I feel that being a minister should not get you more facilities but instead you should get more decision powers.”
