    I want your views on it .
    I've asked myself that a lot of times but it's like football's popularity in Europe.

    "We are told that there is a row brewing in India where people are angry because Mandira Bedi is sporting a saree that has different flags stitched on it ... and the Indian flag was near her feet and that is supposed to be an insult."
