Well if one goes by the latest news by cricinfo, Sharad Pawar and his daughter Supriya Sule have denied being involved in a failed bid for a franchisee in March this year. Does this means that, had the deal been taken off smoothly and successfully, they would have taken the responsibility of having tried to make a foul game out of it? Or, just because the bid failed is that the father - daughter duo are coming out screaming in public that they have nothing to do with the IPL bid for the Pune team? But, reports suggest that they own 30% of the share from the team.
So, I think it is left for the people to believe which version they feel is right and which version they feel has some or a lot of weight in it. The figures reveal a whooping Rs 3.36 million in the form of shares from the Pune team which in addition to the father - daughter duo also has his wife involved in it. The details though are not so important here, one thing that is to be noticed here is the innocence of Sharad Pawar's daughter who comes out saying that her dad has no involvement in the failed bid.
It is really funny to notice here that people who are trying to seek innocence are being innocent unknowingly. Citing an example, though not a real one, a thief being charged for robbery (which is obvious) seeks innocence saying that he is involved only in murder and not in a theft of any sort, thinking that such comments might see him escape from punishment. And, if people with brains (even a little bit of them will do in this case) are said to comment, majority of the answers would be that the father - daughter duo tried to extract something but failed.
Meaning, Sharad Pawar and his daughter (and may be his wife as well) tried to make a lot from the bid but couldn't succeed in doing so just because the bid failed and not because the person mentioned here was true minded. So, this should also mean that a murderer should be let off since he didn't succeed in his plan of killing and instead was deceived when his plans didn't work out as expected by him. Finally, foolishness can be seen by Sharad Pawar's daughter when she tries to prove innocence regarding the reports that suggest 3.36 million worth shares but is proved to be innocent when her words can trap her in another way.
The moral of the story is "learn how to talk, rather diplomatically"
