“In principle, I’m okay with the brain mapping, but not if needles are poked everywhere.”
Mahendra Singh Dhoni is fine with IIM, Ranchi, mapping his cricketing brain to decipher the ‘reasons’ behind Team India’s World Cup triumph.
What he really meant:
“The mapping should be painless. What if they poke the wrong nerve?”
What he definitely didn’t:
“After succumbing to pressure (India lost it’s World No.1 ranking) and suffering a fractured ego, do you really think I want to submit myself to acupressure or acupuncture, in whatever guise?”
