Sweet are the uses of adversity in the garden city

The eyes tell the story of what happened in Bangalore on 3 August 2011 at the BJP legislature party meeting to elect a successor to B.S. Yediyurappa.

The BJP’s observer Rajnath Singh is all attention wondering if D.V. Sadananda Gowda‘s will accurately bite into the offering. Gowda, for his part, gives the impression of having been utterly overcome to even sense what is being thrust into his mouth. Yediyurappa, contorts his hand, as if bowling a doosra into Gowda’s mouth, while the former Union minister H.N. Ananth Kumar….

Well, why spoil the fun.

What could Ananth Kumar be thinking, after his chief ministerial ambitions were (once again) cruelly nipped in the bid and his camp’s nominee, Jagadish Shettar, was forced to eat humble pie?
