Before i start this topic, I want to make it very clear to every one including the CM’s.
You guys have done a exceptional job with all the FFC’s and you guys have been the best. (Esp Nidhi, you rock!)
After i returned home on 16th after the FFC3 Challenge, there were numerous thoughts wandering around.
I din’t know, whom tell it to? O
Just wanted to know, if i was right or wrong? (P.S: I know all these wont make sense at all noww, but i thought i should tell you guys what a fan was feeling about the process)
I totally respect the decisions made by the judges during this year’s FFC3. Having said that, How much of a “FAN” thing is necessary in a “FANATIC FAN CHALLENGE”??? Can anyone answer this???
As in to apply for the FFC in RCB, How much of passion for RCB accounts for your selection?? huh???
This year’s FFC3 winner, Dharma Chandru.. great guy, great photographer!!!No Doubt! How much passion does he have for the club? How passionate is he for the boys in red and gold????
huh???? The guy had no expression when his name was called out???
He had no emotions whatsoever, looked more like… “yea i won, so?” kinda expression!!!!
Now we’re told,our application needs to be among the top lot to make it to the final 21! Right?
Did the judges get to see the applications of the shortlisted 21 ???? NO!!! I don’t think so!
The Above link is the application of Dharma Chandru! How much of a passion can you see in his application? (I ask the CM’s here)
How much? Not only was he selected But WON the competition!
I have nothing against Dharma Chandru, i happened to talk to him during FFC3 and he’s a good person, quite humble to talk to.
And an excellent photographer tooo! But is he passionate about RCB???? I DONT THINK SO!!!
I personally took about 4 hours to fill out my application. It took really long to convert the thing that i feel for RCB into words, and i guess i was successful to some extent!
If only photography skills is what they’re looking for? then.. why call it a Fanatic Fans Challenge… Rather name it.. Photography Challlenge!
So only people with years of photography experience, people with high end lenses in their arsenal can applyy… and win!
Why do they even shortlist, 23-25 year olds with decent photography skills and who’re madly passionate about RCB ??? huh???
P.S: Am not cribbing, that i din’t Win! Am not! But I would have been more than happy, if a candidate who actually had the passion for RCB won.
