A huge burden of a Huge Opportunity Cost


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.

I am not comparing dude, I just gave an example. if he is a loser of game then they r loser of the bigger game.. everyone took Risk and noone succeded.

Its not comparison. There is an IF...

I hate to comment on this blog about the useless stuff but the mention about the heroes of nation force me to express myself. Their names either were intended to gather attention through Google keywords i believe or simply you couldn't find anything to relate .
It is so very irrelevant to the context.
And your lame attempt to categorize them as loser of bigger game, It is nothing but disrespect.

Perhaps its just out of the scope of your little mind or your wannabe attitude.

The Game they played was not for their interest or they get something for themselves out of the risk they took to sacrifice their life. They did it for others, for the nation, for u n me that we can blog n express ourselves freely.

N your winner(or lose) of merely 3.2 lacs where does he stand....

if you want to give an example, at least you can chose is something you can relate to your subject....

and @Gagan, I completely agree that "The Game they played was not for their interest or they get something for themselves out of the risk they took to sacrifice their life. They did it for others, for the nation".


But my point is not that. If someone takes a risk to do something big fails in between cannot justify that someone to be termed as loser.

if u go by my analogy, i believe All the Nations Martyr as hero and Winner.
give ur brain some space to grow and read it again.
