Click to see more picsModel Poonam Pandey who created a stir in the media by announcing that she will bare it all if India wins the World Cup is nowhere to be seen now.As per reports, Poonam’s phone is switched off and her family members are claiming that her declaration wasn’t for cheap publicity but was a genuine offer.After creating a hype, the 19-year-old model has disappointed many, who were waiting for her to fulfill her promise.She has also written to the cricket board seeking permission for the same. A letter to the BCCI reads: “I am ready and willing at any place and time of the Indian team choosing to go in the nude to boost their sporting spirit to perform better.This I say seriously, as there are many studies conducted by various universities abroad which confirms and infers that such performances/expectations boost and inspire people to perform better in any field, be it sports or otherwise. Even medical books on psychology and psychiatry confirm this. “Cricket is a religion in India. Should India lose the World Cup it would demoralise crores of Indians and people may react violently in some places.”It is therefore my humble request to allow me to perform in the privacy of the Indian cricket team’s dressing room or any other place of your choosing. (you may also choose a foreign land, so that the laws of india -if a hindrance, do not apply) “This shall be a private therapeutic performance -with a psychologist’s presence and hence cannot be an offence under any law if the team members have no objection and the BCCI gives the go ahead.”advertisementThe model is keen, but, is ensuring that she doesn’t get into any legal tangle. So, she has mentioned in her letter: “Only appearing in the nude in public is an offense but in private with consenting adults for a therapeutic purpose is no offense.”Let’s see if Poonam Pandey keeps her promise.
