According to Reuters, Alex Younger claimed that actual spies have to deal with both physical and complex moral challenges in the most forbidding environments and uncomfortable situations on Earth; something that Bond cannot manage, lacking a code of strong ethics.

In an interview that was published on ‘Black history Month’, a website that dedicates itself to the grand annual celebration of Britain’s black culture and its heritage, Young stated, “in contrast to James Bond, MI6 officers are not for taking moral shortcut.”

“It’s safe to say that James Bond wouldn’t get through our recruitment process,” he further added.

He said that the real MI6 spooks shared some qualities with Bond, like his tenacity and energy, patriotism and they also needed some additional values and qualities not portrayed by the hero of ‘Goldfinger’, ‘From Russia with Love’, ‘Dr. No’ and the more recent ‘Skyfall’ or ‘Spectre,’ quoted Reuters report.

Both restaurants serve popular Indian dishes like butter chicken, kebabs and a varied vegetarian spread.

There will also be gifts and contests on offers during matches in both the restaurants to celebrate the event.

“We have been waiting for this World Cup. Indians come in large numbers during the World Cup and we wanted these eateries to be a melting point,” he added.

According to Cutting Edge Events, FIFA’s official sales agency in India for the 2018 World Cup, India is amongst the top 10 countries in terms of number of match tickets bought.

Prodyut came to Moscow to study engineering and later started working for a pharmaceutical company here before trying his hand in business. Besides running the two restaurants with the help of his wife, he was into the distribution of pharmaceutical products.

“After Russia won the first match of the World Cup, the footfall has gone up considerably. The Indians are also flooding in after the 6-9 p.m. game. That is the time both my restaurants remain full,” Prodyut said.

There are also plans to rope in registered fan clubs of Latin American countries, who will throng the restaurants during matches and then follow it up with after-game parties till the wee hours.

“I did get in touch with some of the fan clubs I had prior idea about. They agreed to come over and celebrate the games at our joints. Those will be gala nights when both eateries will remain open all night for them to enjoy,” Prodyut said.

Watching the World Cup is a dream come true for the couple, Sumana said.

“We want to make the Indians who have come here to witness the spectacle and feel at home too. We always extend a helping hand and since we are from West Bengal, we make special dishes for those who come from Bengal,” she added. (IANS)
