Tell us: Was the celebration of KKR's IPL triumph by Mamata in Kolkata over the top?

It was a grand show at Kolkata on Tuesday! Over 70,000 fans followed the team,watched Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee felicitate players outside Writers’ Buildings and then lead the march to Eden Gardens. Gold chains for players,impromptu jigs by star owner Shah Rukh Khan and a giant cake completed the wild celebrations. It was reminiscent of India’s World Cup victory jive last year. Over the top? What do you think?

B Ganesh Bhat: The name KKR was OK when Dada was the Captain but now what is Kolkattan about this team?None of the team members know Bengali. Didi,the whole world is watching you and whole lot of people wanting you to make mistakes.No one understands your love for Bengal.

Chandrika Ramachandran: Combo of arrogance,the Joker CM n that misbehaving khan…debt ridden state n wasting people’s money,she prefers to keep the State poor it seems. Where was SRK when the T 20 WC was won by the Indian team?
