Ek Nayi League by Kapil Dev

Well groomed Kapil Dev is standing in the middle of the venue with a pleasant smile. He is surrounded by teams. Each team has 3 members who are indeed celebrities. From sports persons, politicians, artists to actors, the teams are a mixture of all domains. They are here to test their intellectual ability. All are excited and nervous at the same time. Having a face off with Kapil Dev has brought goosebumps to them. But the sheer excitement of playing with the legend of cricket and other celebrities lies above all.

The show starts with a loud cheer of the audience seated surrounding the venue. Their excitement of watching Mr Dev live on the sets cannot be hidden with all the efforts. They shout out KAPIL KAPIL KAPIL till the legend asks them to quiet down by raising his hand.

Kapil Dev welcomes everyone to the show and gives his regards to the viewers watching the show on the television. He introduces every celebrity participating in the show as team members. Some of them are so known that they don't even need an introduction. But as part of gratitude, Kapil Dev doesn't miss anyone. After the introduction, he heads over to the rules and format of the game. Its a quiz show with questions, answers, scores, eliminations and more. Its more about the intellectual abilities of the participants. So anybody using their heart instead of their brain will be out of the game in no time.

The league goes on for multiple weeks and the winning teams will stay on the game. The team which survives till the end becomes the winner. The prize money for the winning team will build the eagerness in every team member to stay till the end.

This is what I think the Ek Nayi League would be about. Kapil Dev has created a lot of curiosity around the league and got not just his fans, but everyone excited about it. His entry into twitter was the first surprise for his fans and announcement of this new league is the second. But the sad part is that in none of the tweets, he or his team has disclosed what this new league is about. Instead it is let on the users to guess what it could be.

Everyone has their own guesses, but nobody is sure if their side of the guess is correct. There is also a contest for the users to guess which is put up on the website of Ek Nayi League. The winner will walk away with a whopping amount of Rs. 1 lakh. The league is also trending on twitter with the hashtag #EkNayiLeague. Curious fans are unable to resist themselves from tweeting about it. Let's wish the best to Kapil Dev and his team for the new league.
