An icon’s image is intact even after he’s gone

SUNAAD RAGHURAM writes: On 6th cross in Gandhi Nagar, Bangalore, is situated a swank hotel. Squeaky clean, charming, compact, smart, and well maintained.

As I came down the elevator, I asked the bell boy if there was a bar I could relax in.

Illa, saar” he instantly whispered. “The hotel belongs to the Raj Kumar family.”

Sheepishly I made a quick getaway. Reputation and image are two things that have to be maintained way into the grave, after all!
