tumba read madbedi buddijeevegale sorry laddi jeevigale……… nivu anti BJP anta yellarigu gottu adre e level ge hatasharagi cheap level ge niv elitira anta gotirlilla :)
YD personal visya ega illi beda…… avru nadanna abhivruddi madali anta namma ashavada………
Down with people who stoop to such cheap mentality…….
Common man be a sport. Cheddyurappa shaking (hands) with Karandlaje is nothing new. Hope he bestows her with goodies, basically I don’t see anything wrong with that. When sarkozy can jollify with carla bruni, why not cheddyurappa with Karandlaje ?
Churmuri is soliciting salacious slander by publishing pictures of this kind. What Yed and Shobha do is their own business. See what I mean? My own comment sounds as if it contains an innuendo. Leave them alone.
If you don’t to want to leave them alone, you might want to ask Prathibha Prahlad, Manju Bhargavi, and the spirit of a dead foreign service officer (Nirmala something) what they think of mishmash like this.
Or Jawahar and Edwina.
Or Padmaja Naidu and Jawahar.
Or MKG and Sarala Devi.
Churumuri, this really is in bad taste. Why do you bother what Yeddi is upto Shobha?
It’s OK. Yeddi has made an ugly woman really beautiful:) You rock (the world of Yeddi) Shobha!
I agree don’t read much, please be on your toes regarding katnataka’s developments and not on hand shakes.
So the chief minister and an elected minister shake hands, get clicked and we are all talking about it. Did we go back to school once again.
Churumuri is of late becoming a scandal sheet. Sorry to say that. Why do you attribute motives to a handshake?
Shame on you churmuri.
nothing wrong… see the photo.. it was taken in public… they are shaking hands and see how each and every person in the gathering are loving to watch… the same thing churumuri has posted.
and i have a couple of friends working as BJP workers. Thet were talking about yaddi-shubhakka very openly …. i mean they said “shobhakka is a great disciple of yaddi” :D
and most people in BJP refer shobha karandlaje as shobhakka … even those people who are elder to shobha.
SO WHAT? YOU CHEAP JOURNO??
This fine blog has been a wonderful kaleidoscope to understand Kannada ‘worldview’.Coming from a state steeped in state sponsored parochialism and mired in politics of personalised attacks and character assassination, i have till recently found (atleast the Mainstream discourse ) in Karnataka is free of such venom.That’s way its quite disappointing to see degeneration setting in with post of this nature
This blog might editorially subscribe to the crude rhetoric of the likes of URA/Gauri Lankesh and think BJP is the greatest danger in this universe but that doesn’t mean you resort to atttack of this kind
I don’t see anything wrong in the photo! Her victory is really remarkable – wininng in a constitutency she entered just during elections and still managing to win. One has to admit that with all kinds of controversies making headlines about her and Yeddi, she is still able to carry herself with dignity. She has withstood all the direct attacks on her by media. In days to come you would see her playing important role in Karnataka Govt.
Churumuri, this is in a very bad taste, churumuri is offlate becoming like aaj tak and headlines today, concentrating more on sleaze rather than material.
correct yourself before its too late…
“anti-BJP”, “bad taste”, “sleaze”, “character assassination”, “salacious slander”, “scandal sheet”….
Is all this in our minds—or yours?
It’s a straightforward photograph of a CM-nominee with one of his 108 MLAs; a photograph that’s been published by most news papers that are in the “news” business today. And it’s a straightforward caption of the meeting. So where do all these moral science lessons come from?
The headline, “The handshake everybody loves to watch closely”?
Again, is it our eyes—or yours?
Look at the picture once again. Look at the eyes of seven of the eight BJP workers. It is they (not we) who are closely watching the handshake, whether you like it or not.
Well said KP .
Hindhe Jollu suruskondu nodtha yirovru yaaru?
They book look great together and Shobha is very photogenic. She looks like a brave and dignified lady. As Radhika put it, she would definitely play an important role in karnataka politics. She looks genuine. Good look, shobha and Yeddi.
I know churumuri is jealouse of Yeddyurappa. Shobhakka and Yeddi relation is a long one. So don’t start new things now.
There is a relationship and it is none of our business. People who should be concerned have accepted this.
There is nothing in this photo to make some new things.
I can produce some similar handshakes between many leaders.
We all know how Mayavati came up.
Well said KP! One sees what he or she wants to see and not what is shown!
The only objection I have to this story is that churumuri published only the picture of Yediyurappa shaking hands with Shobha Karandlaje, and not with any or all of the other 108 BJP legislators.
We know why, we also know why not!
Yes, Yediyurappa has won a famous victory, but why are the Hindutwits behaving as if their angel is god’s chosen one who has descended from the high heavens?
The personal lives of Indian politicians is not a private issue and should not be. Not if the other woman is the cause of bitter intra-party rivalry, threatening the people’s mandate as she did last time. Not if the said other woman is privy to and a player in all manner of crude and crooked deals as evidenced by churumuri’s accompanying story on the BJP-JDS negotiations.
H.D. Kumaraswamy’s personal life involving a film actress has been the butt of many a joke, including a film by an execrable journalist who has now joined the BJP. Narendra Modi has stopped short of calling Sonia Gandhi the Pope’s moll and mistress. And Nehru’s infatuation with Edwina Mountbatten is the stuff of legend.
If all that has the Hindutwits thapping their thighs and licking the saliva off the corner of their mouths, why is Yediyurappa’s “scene” with Shobha Karandlaje such a matter of shame? Oh, because he is an RSS chappie, and RSS soldiers as we all know from the example of Govindacharya and Uma Bharati don’t have such earthly desires and urges. They believe in immaculate conception, you see.
CM shaking hands with CM-in-making… Wait for 2 yrs and verify my prediction :-)
Yediyurappa a poor chap migrated from Mudhigere in Mandya District in search of a job to Shikaripur in Shimoga Disytrict.
Yediyurappa began working as a Clerk in a Rice Mill owned by Shastri. He managed to marry the daughter of his employer. He then took over the entire Property of Shastri, the man who gave him his first job and his daughter.
Yediyurappa cruelly exiled Shastri and the entire family from their own house and became the Proprietor.
Yediyurappa then became Municipal President of Shikaripur.
Yediyurappa became MLA in 1983.
Yediyurappa is a Communal and Casteist Lingayat.
Yeddiyurappa rose to become the Party President and Leader of the Opposition.
Yediyurappa all through his political career has been one of Karnatakas most corrupt politicians.
All through his tenure as an Opposition Leader he was always on the take from Congress Chief Ministers.
Yediyurappa befriended a extra-marital fondness called Shobha Karandlaje.
Yediyurappas wife Maitradevi objected to the Shobha immorality.
One Night Yediyurappas wife was drowned in a water tank at her residence.
Had Maitradevi not objected to Yediyurappas immorality then she probably would have not died in such suspicious circumstances.
Yediyurappa made Shobha a BJP Office Bearer and an MLC. He was keen on making her a Minister but did not get the clearance from the other seniors in the BJP.
Yediyurappa as Deputy Chief Minister had Shobha Live-In with him in the Official Residence.
The Entire Bureacracy, Business, Brokers and BJP activists who wanted anything done through Deputy Chief Minister Yediyurappa had to strike a Deal with Shobha, fill her coffers and prostrate before her.
Shobha was involved in everything. Postings, Transfers, Government Funds Allocation, Contracts and all the activity involving the Power and Patronage of the Deputy Chief Minister. Shobha was thus the de facto Deputy Chief Minister.
Now, Shobha will be the De facto Chief Minister.
Shobha and Yediyurappa will soon prove that the BJP Government in Karnataka is the most corrupt in Indias History!
If you want anything done by the Karnataka Chief Minister Yediyurappa, then do not meet him. Just fly to Bangalore, drive to the Chief Ministers Official Residence, stand in a queue with a suitcase full, meet Shobha, Strike a Deal with her and your desire will be fulfilled.
Say Hello to Shobha Karandlaje, the BJPs de facto Chief Minister of Karnataka.
There is nothing wrong in this post. I dont think so there is any need to criticize churumuri for this. Get it straight….. KP, well said…..
BJP’s SONIYA GANDHI, THE KING MAKER…!
@ Nastika : We had had leaders like Gundu Rao , R K Hegde , Jeevaraj Alva , Kumaraswamy and several others sharing the same passion for extra marital affairs.Some of them are rumoured to have died of aids.In fact Several icons of the Kannada Film Industry also have had affairs and produced ILLEGITIMATE children.So lets not talk of immorality as it seems YOU have Voted for the Janata Dal and having been seen the party lose its face you have posted some irrelavant message here courtesy CHURMURI.
Lets not forget that , JJ had a relationship with MGR after a failed livein relationship with a telugu actor.Amitabh had Rekha.Mrs Tina Ambani shared the Tooth brush of Rajesh Khanna.Gopinath Mude had a theatre artist for company.You dont have to Murder someone to continue with the affair.Since you have mentioned this in passing I wonder if this would be your way of getting away in case you had a extra marital affair.
Would have agreed with your statement in other cases.
But now you are acting “Holier than thou”.
You know why you published that photot. You know what the headers indicated. And the readers criticizing you exactly got the meaning you tried to infer.
Now please dont try to sermonize them down. Good things are expected from this blog, as this blog has delivered in past. That was the reason for disappoiintment and crticisms against this type of below the belt hits ( at least critics were forthright).
Nastika seems to be Gowri Lankesh in disguise! Since the BJP’s win, she has been bashing Yeddi wherever she goes. Same thing she says in CNN IBN and NDTV. Same thing she writes in her tabloid. She is going crazy!
Oh come on…why make Yeddi’s private life public. Give Yeddi a chance. Take a cue from Just Devegowda and Sons (JDS)…Didnt HDK have an affair with Radhika..It was common knowledge that JH Patel had affairs with many film stars and was pretty open in discussing this.
namma Kuruda-nidhi ne tagaLi. 3 afishallu, 6 nan-afishallu!! oor tumba makLu!
People forgot J H Patel so soon.
Hope Yeddi keeps the flag high with his Cheddi
Look at Shobha’s mouth. There cannot be a more effective ad for gum health. And the woman has spunk.
Now coming to the thing called “lady” MLA… Why did Yaddi and Co. did not allow Shakuntala Shetty to contest? Why did they dint grant her ticket only? This was all because Shkuntala Shetty has been a very sincere BJP worker since years and she did not like Shobha Karandlaje coming into forefront all of a sudden.
Many of the RSS leaders alongwith Shakuntala Shetty did not like Shobha because, Shobha was nothing in BJP some years ago. Even leaders who came before her have not been given any status, while shobhakka has been enjoying many benefits.
And shobha was just a part worker. She was made MLC. And now due to pumping of money, she is an MLA. And if Yaddi has so much concern to bring up a lady, why did he prevent Shakuntala shetty from contesting?
Shobha Karandlaje has changed her name to Shobha Gowda. So in next 5 years, we can see Lingayat & Vokkaliga community coming together more closely :)
I hope the people of Karnataka now know who they have willingly crowned as CM. From the pot into the fire.
As if alternatives are saints… err… saints make bad leaders, right? :P
At the least the hooch
brewerkingpin didn’t become the CM. :-)
they… we… they! we!
maam pahi :D
Will Ravi Belagere make a sequel to his movie ‘CM in love’ ? :-)
Nitin nice question there..
tv9 made fun of Mr. Belagere a week ago. Showing belagere’s video’s of his appearance with Bellary brothers.
they commented in Dheerendra gopal voice “alaaa kalaaa.. ee ravi belagere mukhyamantri i love u chitra maaDid nalla.. adEn aatu? aa picture release maaD-de yaak hind aaDtaa iddanu”
at least we can enjoy if belagere releases only one DVD of this film. We people have become so big panta’s in piracy, that we can circulate the DVD to whole karnataka in a week.
Forget the handshake, this lady needs to see a good dentist/orthodontist to fix the extra-gum that gets exposed whenever she smiles
Wow what a disgrace its just the beginning as many of you said,Its sad to see these reddi,cheddi and gaati’s.I guess this is the fate of karnataka mistresses always rule.
Our Resident Dentist, Dr Ramesh may have few tips for Mrs…..
watch Gauri Lankesh ranting against Yeddyurappa. She doesnt have even the least humility to just accept the verdict of people.
well said mayura… even i was thinking the same. :D
or she should smile little less..
i dont know how Mr. ——- got bowled for this great smile.
check out this video. Yadyurappa and Shobha cant beat the handshake done in this song.
Mayura. Dr.Ramesh the dentist should help.
I think we need unmarried bachelors to rule our state like Narendra Modi and AB Vajpayee. For the health of the state a leader should control his senses and not fall into romantic relations.
>>i dont know how Mr. ——- got bowled for this great smile.>>
Lust works in mysterious ways :)
who are we mortals to question BSY’s choice. BTW why is the banner she is wearing laterally inversed on her left side :)
Good suggestion…but I think the good doctor should be sulking after the JDS got routed and his wet dreams of HD and family forming the government again got dashed.
The doctor is out please be seated
ALL U BLOODY THIRD RATED BASTARDS WRITING CHEAP THINGS ABOUT PEOPLE . WASH UR SELF WITH PHENYL DONT THINK INDIAN WOMEN ARE LIKE ITALIAN WHORES TRYING TO RULE THIS COUNTRY
i spit on churmuri for this bastardly interpretation
This is crap article. This is full of masala. Shobha has Master Degree in Social Walfare. She is very talented and very eminent politician. Being mangalorian She is able to win election in Bangalore show her talent. Cheap guys try to put masala into pictures.
STOP YOUR crucked comments on ladies. Have some dignity while painting non-sense pictures on the photograph. She is the only upcoming Karnataka female candidate as of now like BJP Shushma Swaraj and Tara Devi.
Let us all remind ourselves, Lady Indira Ghandhi ruled India.
Holasu Janagalu – dirty people – Kabbunarutte nimma bayigalu.
you look like still concerned about past election results ,please give us some feedback about coming MP elections. this is not the first or last election for HDK team ,they will stay in politics for several decades as they are holding their political base from past 40 year.
ree ambikakka, adu kabbu narutte alla, gabbu narutte anta :D
let us keep the personal matters aside. Shobha said once that Yaddi is tande samaana for her.
let the lady come up… but other ladies in the party who worked sincerely from years have been sidelined to bring up this newcomer shobha.
I had been thinking about saying something about how the JDS goondas have destroyed the concept of civility in our Kannadamenippa naadu. Now I must add Sonia haters like you to the list.
Can we not disagree without resorting to name calling?
Good to see you sticking to your anti-censorship policy. Of course, I am assuming F is not one of your creations.
personal vishaya bekagilla. nadina rajyada abhivruddi mukya. yella vargada janarigu anukula aguvudaste mukya. yelli holasilla? yella kade ide. nimma magalu, nimma hendati, nimma akka-tangiyaru yestarmattige sari yembudannu modlu manana madikolli. mahileyara bagge jariyuvudu beda. shobha karndlaje olle candidate. avru olle kelsa madali annuvude nanna anisike
Shobakka, eer masth porlu ullar. Yan irna fan, I mean iranane urudal. Ireg Mudva gothippu athe? o.k, irna future life’gu ennala onji udal dinji haraike. namasthe.
look at how yeddi is looking at shobha.
what is the difference between madhu koda and bellary reddy. both made money from mineral resources of rich soil of poor parts of india.
yenappaa yentha jodi? valid jeev jyotege irlu balu sundar
please remember Maitro Devi .. a never got a chance to laugh like this-who was wife yediyurappa… who found dead on October 2004 .
Scam Raja Yeddi is Bak….!
Yeddi has made 18 scams (Highest by Any indian)..
BJP supporters will commit suicide very shortly including me….
shame on us for electing these…b….s…
