Rajkumar

Rajkumar passed away - got me an additional holiday.
But didnt make my life easier. I cant figure out why people are asked not to do usual business. If those people are interested in observing @$%@% let them do it. Why do force others who dont even know the person who died?
I had booked my ticket to chennai for thursday night train. So I wasted a day on bangalore. And even on thursday it became a nghtmare to reach the railway station from BTM. No buses.. so walked till Silk-board junction, go a bus. The conductor yelled majestic. I boarded with literally hundreds of people and from everyone he took Rs.10 for Rs.8 tickets and marked 2 on all tickets. Then he stopped the bus on midway to make sure everyone has got a ticket. then the bus went without stopping inthe next 2 stoppings and finally halted in Double-road and said thats it...it wont go to majestic.. and the conductor was not ready to pay the change itself dont thing of any refund... Autos were rare and which ever went was full.. so started walking and walked to majestic -good exercise

Bangalore looked deserted that gave me an idea of how beautiful this city would have been a decade ago... Now I am awaiting the mail which will ask me to come to office on a weekend as compensation... Thankyou Rajkumar fans. BTW I would like to know in which way he changed your lives?

Each state has its share of heroes. Karnataka had Rajkumar, TN had MGR, AP had NTR... And each of their deaths resulted in similar chaos. I am not justifying the violence, but please do not belittle the heroes who revolutionized change in their respective regions. Dr.Raj's contributions to Kannada movies and its culture are immense. He deserves the respect and adulation he receives.

But Do I(WE) deserve the inconvenience?

What is the benefit of burning buses and attacking people? What good will it do to Dr.Rajkumar?

These are real, genuine, They are verifiable and student records and
transcripts are also available. This little known secret has been
kept quiet for years. The opportunity exists due to a legal loophole
allowing some established colleges to award degrees at their discretion.

With all of the attention that this news has been generating, I wouldn't
be surprised to see this loophole closed very soon.
