The readers of this blog would know how closely we follow the life and times of Bappi Lahiri.

Bappi Da watchers would remember how, in 2010, when Shakira sang 'Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)', Bappi Da had spiritedly offered: ' Football Fever Bole Ole Ole':

Likewise, given how closely he has followed JLo's oeuvre, it is perhaps fitting that a day after her performance at the FIFA 2014 opening ceremony, we have the BJP's thwarted Lok Sabha aspirant from Serampor constituency in West Bengal sharing his infectious love for the great game and profound wisdom, all dressed up (well almost) in the party flag:

The song, he says, is "captioned 'Love For Football'" and for those who care more for words than the music, the complete lyrics are reproduced below:

We are all one
Dreams are high
Thrill and fun
That's football

Rhythm is football
Speed is football
Action is football

The whole world loves football

Football

We believe this is his third offering for the FIFA as he had, apparently, also composed a song for FIFA 2006.

We seek your assistance, gentle readers, in helping us locate a link in the comments section.
