With the BJP and JDS on the threshold of power once again, a predictable metaphor being used by the media is of “re-marriage”—and a second honeymoon.
‘Maru maduveya kshana ganane,’ (countdown for remarriage) goes the tagline of TV9, the 24-hour Kannada news channel, for instance. But re-marriage implies husband and wife coming together once again, not a switching of sexes!
So, is B.S. Yediyurappa the bride or the groom as he crosses the altar today?
Feel free to keep your tongue firmly in your cheek.
