Sometimes you are up, sometimes you are down

Five months and two days ago, B.S. Yediyurappa was flaming mad when somebody pulled the chair from behind him at a press conference addressed by BJP president Rajnath Singh in Bangalore, landing him on his back when he sat down in the full glare of the cameras, still and video.

On Monday, the Karnataka chief minister was all smiles reliving the frozen memory at an exhibition organised by the Photojournalists’ Association of Bangalore at the Chitrakala Parishat. To Yediyurappa’s right is K. Gopinathan, the chief photographer of The Hindu, who captured the frame.

One leg in the chair, two eyes on the chair

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