Sorry, wraang number. Swalpa adjust maadi.

SAGGERE RAMASWAMY writes from Bangalore: A crucial session of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly begins on Monday. And the numbers aren't quite adding up for the coalition regime already.

The registration number of the car of the Speaker of the Assembly, Krishna, says it all.

The number plate of the Speaker's car reads “KA 01 GA 234” in front. At the back, the number plate of the same car reads “KA 01 GB 234”.
