It doesn’t hurt to pray, goes the old saying, more so if you are the bruised and battered leader of God’s Own Party.
Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yediyurappa, who, like the former prime minister H.D. Deve Gowda, spends an inordinate amount of time going to temples and mutts, cavorting with godmen and astrologers, and in conducting homas, havans and yagnas to ward off the evil omens and Reddys threatening his government, takes a dip at the Triveni sangama during the Poornakumbha Mela near T. Narasipur on Saturday.

Do our gods sanction our politicians’ silly games?
Notice the belly hanging like a cow’s dewlap. That’s what makes all politicians holy cows, even the law cannot effectively reach them!
Yediyrappa must certainly believe he has movie star good looks. Ayyo shivane, yaakappa inthornella namma munde nilsi kaata kodtheeya?
Most people always want a stable government to be in power. BJP when it came to power riding on an almost majority on its own was thought that it will prove its worthiness and cement its upswing in the south but its real sad to see some real clones @ the helm. BSY is a real Dumbo ass fit only for the yagnas, Homas and the likes! Does he have nothing else to do other than this? being a CM ? May be he isnt really fit to even understand what it takes to be a successful leader. The crrying n homas I guess did a world of gud to be still able to stick on his ass to the chair.

25 hours and four comments, and nobody yet complaining about how pseudo-secular Churumuri has no problem when Sonia Gandhi goes to the Vatican but always attacks Hindu leaders when they go to Hindu places of worship?
This can’t be for real.
The countdown starts now.
Very few people made noises when Sonia Gandhi became the supreme leader of the country. Her stock up went up even higher when she realised it would be illegal for her to become prime minister.
Even in light of our attachment to bili thogalu, I sometimes wonder if the woman has something real about her. The blood of Machiavelli, perhaps?
Incidentally, Narendra Modi’s letter to her in Italian is a splendid act of BJP chutzpah.

Prayer and religion are one’s personal beliefs. I think it is in bad taste to comment and make fun of that. Whether it is DG, BSY or SG, one can criticize their misusing of official machinery for religious purposes or exploiting religion for political gains. But the mere act of prayer is their personal choice and that should be respected.
I wonder if churumuri had the same *open* mind to print and comment on pictures of say “Jaffer Sharier” or “Sonia Gandhi” praying ?
Now don’t tell these two individuals are *cleaner* than BSY. :)
Hope you remember enough funny pictures of the (Dev)asura and his Goblin sons.
Agree with Faldo here. It’s a personal belief system.
Ofc he may have misused state machinery for this very personal act. But still that point could have been made in a better way. The picture and the commentary are not in a good taste.
please will some one tell BSY what’s expected out of him.Nobody knows what he shud do to please all of us.
Basavanna, the 12th century social reformer, said “Work is worship’. Basavanna shunned rituals of all kinds.
Basavanna’s ideals gave birth to a sect/caste/group called Lingayats, to which Mr. Yediyurappa belongs to.
By being so overwhelmingly ritualistic, isn’t the CM going against the teachings of his own faith, which advocates shunning of rituals?
prashanth, what you say also is true.
here more than the faith, churumuri just wants to make fun of yeddy, reddy, gowda, murthy, or some scapegoats it finds.
Sonia made remarks like criminals should be thrown out of politics blah blah.
churumuri /or nobody bothered about her statements..
how funny. does she think she is not a criminal?
Incidentally, Narendra Modi’s letter to her in Italian is a splendid act of BJP chutzpah.
— Taking cues from this Mr Deve Gowda should probably write letters to Mr BSY in ‘Tamil’ to get his attention??
Good for temples, their hundis and trust members.
Folks, let us accept it:
Yediyurappa (the sacred Lingayat, a.k.a modern day Basavanna) is beyond doubt, the most shameless, corrupt kannadiga CM we have ever had.
He has put even the crooked Bangarappa or Kumaranna or all other past CMs inferior when it comes to looting and swift prosperity, no wonder his precious time is jam-packed with visits to temples all over the land, including the Himalayas using poor tax payers money apart from getting spiritual advise form shady swami’s like Sri Sri or the heads of various commercial ATM Mutt heads.
One thing for sure: While his well known cronies too have become black money billionaires in such a short time, unlike Modi and Gujarat, the Karnataka BJP is now doomed forever. Perhaps they deserved it for the irresponsibility and complete disrespectto the common man’s trust and mandate.

Justify what you said about Sonia Gandhi.
1. eliminate strong leaders from congress party. (helicopter crash, accident sudden unnatural death, etc etc)
2. why is rajiv gandhi’s assasin Nalini being released?
3. give unlimited powers to all ” minority” leaders and christians in particluar. convert poor, poverty stricken hindus to christianity at $ 10 or 15 dollars!! only christians find place in her inner circle.
why was she so emotional during YSR’s helicopter crash??
4. send her mother to collect hindu statues, idols, from india, and whatever she sends thru major airports in the country gets unchecked.
5. auction them at christy’s or sell them in italy as antique
6. what Bill Gates has earned thru business acumen, she has earned thru just by marrying into Gandhi family. even today she, her great leader children are very much carry italian passports.
7. she was never a part of any university in London. forget about Cambridge university.
8. she was married for decades and with an italian passprt, obtained indian citizenship on the eve of her husband PMship sewaring ceremony.
she wanted to be the PM of India. thank god we had prez Kalam during that time, unlike the present tamasha president
other readers can add on about her corrupt activities.
corruption itself is a big criminal activity.
My professors at Regional Institute of Education, Mysore always said that the only way to end the BJP rule is by giving it a chance to rule. It was evident from its collpase at Center, now it is state’s turn. Leaders of BJP do more harm to BJP than the outsiders.
Ofcourse, their words have come true …..
(Dev)asura and his Goblin sons.
Do the brahmin/forward/upper/aryan caste group still think the native/black Indians as Asuras???
Its not least expected from BSY to seek divine intervention, more so when he had received a strong jolt by Reddys, which had nearly cost him his chair, and probably the Govt. It seems , its inevitable for him to go the sacred & pious way,as he is made a puppet in the hands of the high-heeled ,affluent real high command folks of the state Govt,with his wings cut short from flying too high as was before,after the patch up .
Yeddi should be sent to Gujarat for a 6 months training under Modi on how to be a efficient CM.

Yediyurappa is beyond doubt, the most shameless, corrupt kannadiga CM we have ever had… along with DeveGowda.
When all the states are flourishing including Bihar and UP, our good old karnataka is going down at a rapid pace. There is neglect in every department. Infrastructure is crumbing pathetically, one or two flyovers does not make a difference. There is more to be done on basics like roads, power and water. Nothing has been done yet. Im sorry to say yedi, you have been a complete failure.
Im not even touching the corruption part, cause Yeddy along with Gowda has been most corrupt, his corrput days started from day one, buying out ministers and has carried on till date with reddy bros and sex tainted minsters. A sex tainted cm we have.
We kannadigas are cursed with worst leaders across all parties.
@ Dr. Sree Reddy
I find Sonia Clean, and not criminal unlike Gowdas and Yeddys. Rest of India thinks the same, she is a proud lady. She should be! she has done well in her capacity without making cheap statements or corruption. Not one charge has been made against her till date.
People tried to do everything to bring her down. I must say she stood tall and has grown taller than anyone in Political India.
Why Tamil? In any case, the old man hardly go beyond saying widows’s son, etc.
“Do the brahmin/forward/upper/aryan caste group still think the native/black Indians as Asuras???”
BTW the punjabis/sindhis/ruling groups in Pakistan also think the same.
Differentiation based on skin colour is human nature.
I can only pity your points. All your points are a mere fancy imagination of yours.
Kalam has openly stated that he never stopped Sonia from being Prime Minister. it is a rumour spread by people like you.
She is an Indian as much as Obama is an American.
She has all the rights to be a PM as much as an Indian has in US of A.
sure, no cahrge can be made against her.
because her party’s control is so stong, all charges and papers get evaporated in the air. people who have strong proof and if they dare to make it public, and have disappeared from the face of this earth.
she is proud of what? it suits her very well to have a puppet PM like manmohan singh.
that woman never allowed authorities to grant
samadhi land for PV Narasimha Rao. Indians should salute him for his economic liberalization. if he did not liberalise eco. policies of our country, India would have lagged behind other countries by 5/6 decades.
Sonia gandhi is not corrupt and does not make cheap statements. it will be a biggest joke of the century.
All her statements are written and managed and well-tailored by people like jayaram ramesh and his ilk. so she does not make cheap comments.
as if she knows anything about india: except a place to fool dark skinned illiterate people with gandhi tag and mint money.
rest of india: have you taken any survey and where? amethi?
many in rest of india does not think about her like that. they are just fooled.
about gowdas and yeddy: they represent, atleast a part of india and they are very much like any other indian politician. others are no different.
Would u have accepted if gowda and yeddy came in sophisticated attires and uttered elegant words in public. they would have been less criminal and less corrupt. allava?
before pitying my comments, pity yourself….
in india people have soft corner for white skins and a craze for gora chamda. what has she done for the country?
her lower middle class family prospered enormously after her marriage to gandhi family.
indeed she stands tall with her 10 inches heels :)
Hindi then? BSY watches hindi movies, installs Tamil statues, address Tamil gatherings across Karnataka.

@ Dr. Sree Reddy
all your assumptions brother. Chill!
and Reddy brother, She has gained popularity and won the election for her party and she is doing well, very well. Please stop assuming things. All your posts in this page are your own assumptions. These assumptions can be made on anybody. I still maintain, Sonia is cleaner than the rest.
@ raj the congress spokesperson
please hang a photo in ur pooja room n pray.
they are facts not assumptions, only some congress bhaktas will say she is clean.
by the way, why do u assume only males post comments here?
i can also say the samething to ur assumptions on that italian.
who is this reddy? he imagines more than he can chew. grow up man. be a real man.
i am no sonia fan.but dont u talk so meanly when all u say about her is your creative imagination.
