Prashant Batar, An unknown face and a name till 9th November 2010. Suddenly after 9th Nov he is termed as the biggest loser in the history of Indian Reality television. I certainly Don't agree to it, neither i agree to accept that he was being greedy and an idiot.
We all saw Kaun Banega Crorepati and witnessed Prashant losing Rs 97 Lakhs while attempting for the last question for Rs 5 Crore ($ 1 Million ). He reached 1 crore with an ease and was first contestant in this season to reach 3L20T with the help of any lifeline. All the 12 questions were answered with confident and ease prior to a sensible thought.
When he won Rs 1 Crore, the same people were cheering and clapping for him. There was even a small celebration amidst which Mr. Amitabh Bachchan himself told that you are brilliant and "Bahut achhi parwarish ki hai aapne"(You have raised him in a very well and intelligent manner) to his parents.So if the same set of people are branding him as a fool and idiot are actually fooling themselves. He took the risk and it was not paid.
He did not lose but won Rs 3,20000. It was not greed but to excel like everyone who come to participate in KBC.
If he is a failure because he could reach the final answer, then Bhagat Singh, Rani Laxmi Bai, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose all were losers.As they were either caught/murdered or died before they reached their goal of making India Independent.
It's not the end who justifies a winner, its the process. Nobody in season 4 (KBC) has ever attempted the question for Rs 5 Crore. It is the greed, which has forced many to withdraw well before reaching there. Certainly it was not the greed for mere green papers.
The very impossible question was not a loss but the opportunity cost for Prashant.
