Diego Maradona, a big “ceberity,” to visit India

Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona will be visiting India in December and one Diego_maradona
reporter was so excited, he wrote this:

The hero of Argentina's 1986 World Cup victory is also scheduled to
visit Mother House, the global headquarters of Missionaries of Charity
here, said Communist Party of India Marxist (CPI-M) Lok Sabha member
Samik Lahiri.

'Maradona inked the deal to come to Kolkata when we
called on him at his Buenos Aires residence Nov 1. He is keen to come
to the city for promoting soccer and visiting the Missionaries of
Charity,' said Lahiri, who hit upon the idea of inviting Maradona and
roped in the Ceberity Mangement Group and real estate company Eden as
joint organisers. [Link]

The reporter works for the Indo-Asian News Service (IANS), which means that there are now more than two dozen websites (and many more print publications) whose readers are saying to themselves, "I wonder if anyone can mange a big ceberity like Maradona."

If you're wondering whether the Delhi-based IANS has any copy editors, who do you think corrected what the reporter wrote: Cereblitee Maginemeant Grewp.
