BCCI award function a cheap rip-off of Oscars

They say Imitation is the best form of flattery. Not sure if the BCCI or some of our "film awards" ceremonies aim to please or flatter the Oscar awards organizers but they sure remind me of the Chinese made replicas (working ones at that) of Harley Davidsons bikes or Bentley cars. Cheap rip-offs. I could not tolerate it that one time when one Tamil movie award ceremony was modeled on the Oscars, of course without the mini skirts. The same nature of music, round dining tables around which participants sit watching at the stage, spot lights in a particular fashion etc etc. You end up feeling disgusted and wondering what would make us Indians want to ape the west so much. Note that I have not used "these people" but "us Indians" because we all inevitably end up doing it. Every time we say "shucks" or "yikes" it's but our contribution towards these wild aping. But that's another topic for another day.

But yeah, the BCCI function was indeed modeled on the Oscars and it was a Chinese Harley.
