For the album:Lijo S. Chungath, Managing Director of Pavizham Jewellers, with the replica of the cricket World Cup in Coimbatore.
Coimbatore: The World Cup cricket fever is at its peak. To further set the pace, Pavizham Jewellers on Cross Cut Road has come up with a ‘Click a photo with the Cup' offer for cricket lovers from this part of the region.
Pavizham has kept on display a replica of the cup. Though not in gold and silver, it still looks good as the original.
A genuine cricket lover or those who got the rare chance to catch a glimpse of the original when it visited the city early in February might find some finer details missing here and there.
What is the idea? “We want to encourage sports and sportspersons in Coimbatore,” said Lijo S. Chungath of Pavizham.
Mr. Lijo has organised such photo sessions during major sporting events. He had the 2010 ‘FIFA World Cup' displayed in a similar manner. He even had the final of the prestigious soccer event beamed on a giant screen inside his showroom parking lot. It did attract a sizeable crowd.
During cricket's last World Cup, he ran a ‘Spot the champion' contest. The winner took home a diamond necklace. This time round it is the ‘Sixer Offer', where you take any item and pay only six per cent as the making charge.
But that is for those who wish to purchase. The rest can get a photo clicked with the prized cup free of cost.
The first day attracted more than 200 people. “We expected much more,” said Mr. Lijo.
He also wished that India gets past Australia in the crucial quarterfinal, dubbed by many as the mini-final of the World Cup. “I am positive about India's chances but in case they end up losing then the spirit and the charm of the contest may go missing.”
