Tomorrow’s photograph today? Or is Krishna…?

The assembly elections in Karnataka is just what the editor ordered for sub-editors. With a canvas populated by a scowling B.S. Yediyurappa, a spiffy S.M. Krishna, the earthy H.D. Deve Gowda—and assorted characters like Dharam Singh, Mallikarjuna Kharge, Ananth Kumar and the Reddys who appear to have all tumbled out of some comic book—it is a perfect paathashala for caption and headline writers to show their imagination and creativity.

But why let them have all the fun?

How would you — yes, you — caption this excellent picture shot yesterday, 28 April 2008?

Is it an idol? Is it a statue? Is it a mannequin?

One leg in the chair, two eyes on the chair

Yedi, steady, go: all the gods must be crazy
