During the Olympic inaugural day, an unknown woman in the Indian contingent raised many questions.

V GANGADHAR speculates on what the whos who might have thought of her and her antics.

that lady? O ur sportspersons now

in London for the Olympic games may or may not win a single medal, but even on the inaugural day, they made news. An unknown woman, not wearing any march past national uniform, coolly walked along side the Indian athletes and the officials of various associations.

No one knew who she was, no one tried to stop her.

Such a shameful mishap could happen only with the Indian Olympic team. Who was that lady? Wondered everyone in India? Some people already had the answer. Others wanted the responsibility fixed and the guilty to be punished. Now read on! BJP leadership : The Prime Minister must be held responsible and we demand his resignation. Never in the past had the Indian Olympic movement shamed as of now. The infiltration of this woman in the march past was a major security breach and coming so soon after Assam had national security implications. We also demand a full- fledged judicial inquiry headed by a retired Supreme Court judge.

Ajay Maken, Sports Minister: I very much suspect the hand of Suresh Kalmadi. Prevented by the order of the Delhi High Court to be present at the Games inaugural functions, Kalmadi, with his vast experience of Olympic routine, must have arranged something like this. An inquiry would reveal that the woman was someone known to Kalmadi from Pune.

Salman Khurshid, Law Minister : How can there be any doubt over this deplorable incident? The mystery woman belonged to the Anna Camp and was used in a gimmick to catch media attention. Some one said it could be Arvind Kejriwal dressed up as a woman but that can be discounted. We also have definite information that had the woman not been caught and removed from the scene, she would have gone to the huge canteen in the Olympic village and sat down for a fast- unto- death. The Anna group is capable of any dirty trick.

Commissioner, Scotland Yard: That was a sad security breach because it was totally unexpected. We were all looking for the arrival of 007 ( James Bond) and Her Majesty the Queen. In that excitement we did not pay attention to this woman. Had Rupert Murdoch still been active in the British media he would have supported us in his alt145 Sunalt39and alt145 News of the Worldalt39. IG of Police, Assam : Ha, and India thinks that it was only the Indian police which often goofed up! Even the famous Scotland Yard was no better than us.

Anna Hazare : How did you think this woman got there breaching the tight security? By bribing the police and other security agencies. This gives us a chance to Internationalise our movement. With the support of Kejriwal and Bedi, our London branch would start a fast- unto- death in London.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II : We are not amused.

Mamata Banerjee: That woman is clever. With so much infiltration from Assam and Bangladesh, we need to take preventive action on security breaches. I asked my aide, Derek Oalt39Brien to meet her and make an offer to become Security Consultant to the West Bengal government.

That would be real alt145 poribartanalt39. Karan Johar , Filmmaker: A brilliant idea for my new film, alt145 Who Kaun Thi IIalt39! Must persuade Kaajol to come out of retirement and play the lead role? Amit uncles solo run would be part of the film, the only problem, was to find a suitable role for Shah Rukh Khan. Perhaps, it could be an adaptation of Shakespeares alt145 Taming of the Shrewalt39where in one scene, Kate the shrew, chased her errant boy friend all over the place including the Olympic march past.

All India Womens Federation: A alt145 Padma Shrialt39for the mystery woman for hoodwinking the Olympic security.
