Tasmin Lucia Khan had a peculiar incident while presenting news for BBC London recently. By the way many of you might find it interesting that Tasmin Lucia Khan used to earlier work for a local Indian channel called Zee news.
I am surprised she made such a long shot to BBC London from a crass Indian news channel which believes in putting thunder and lightening before announcing news on its channel.
So anyway what happened was that this 28 year old Oxford economics graduate – Tasmin Lucia Khan – ran shorts of words while reading the news and resorted to what we all do when we don’t know what to say, basically hem and haw and stretch the words.

Besides doing all of this, Tasmin also ran out of breath. Imagine sighing while reading the news and having a pretty face on top of that.
According to the Daily Mail, a UK tabloid, this had the male viewers hot and bothered. Its no wonder that just after 30 seconds of getting air time, Tasmin had her video yanked by the BBC producers.
Here is how one news channel described Ms Lucia Khan’s performance –
She started off with a skittish sounding â€˜Hi, Iâ€™m Tasminâ€™, and followed this with: â€˜Hereâ€™s a quick reminder of the BBC news channelsâ€™, her diction seemed quite visibly peculiar, placing groundless stress on the word â€˜quickâ€™, which she elongated as well.
Tasmin then moved on to the first news of the day: â€˜A missing businessmanâ€™s been found alive in a Florida campsiteâ€¦â€™ she purred, her voice ascending prominently at the end of the concluding word. She managed to end the sentence with â€˜â€¦three days after his plane crashedâ€™ – but not before gasping very audibly between the words â€˜daysâ€™ and â€˜afterâ€™. The next item never materialized, as she stopped talking altogether. In the seconds that follow, she is heard sighing.
HAHA. I can imagine how it would have looked and sounded like. Like somebody having a bad hair day and just calling it off before completing the segment.
Of course BBC being BBC issued a statement saying Tamsin’s breathlessness had been caused by her late arrival in the studio. But this is not stopping internet conspiracy theorists from coming out with their own versions.
