Believe it or not black magic and hocus pocus works. It sure did. The suryanamaskars in the nude have saved him once again.
Bhanu Prakash, personal astrologer of Karnataka’s CM, Mr Yeddyurappa has advised him to perform suryanamaskars in the nude to ward off the effect of black magic. And who, you might ask is wasting his precious time performing black magic on the poor spotless soul? Well, who else but his equally upright opponents. Mr. Kumaraswamy is busy performing special pujas to dethrone the present occupant. In order to counter the former CM, the beautiful city of myriad possibilities has a leader who is balancing on one leg; umm...well in the buff. How about writing a book, or better still releasing a CD on the yogic poses going by the title, ‘Yoga for political survival’? It will beat the sales of Ms Shettys CD on yoga.http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/To-ward-off-evil-BSY-to-do-yoga-in-the-buff/articleshow/7407645.cms
Strange. Often the way out of scandals is even more scandalous.
If you really want to delve into great minds, forget reading biographies of the legends. Forget Obamas', ‘Audacity of Hope’, or Nandan's, ‘Imagining India’.
We are fortunate enough to have leaders with great vision, infinite wisdom and enormous experience to lead us in the twenty first century. In fact they should pen their experiences for the larger benefit of mankind.
Sonia ji can shed some light on, ‘How to use a remote control- Power without accountability’. Rahul, the dimpled one can explain, ‘How coalition politics is responsible for inflation’. The future breed of foreign ministers can learn from the memoirs, ‘Such things happen – Political gaffes by Krishna’. True, it could happen to anyone who is seventy-eight and zooming non-stop across the globe. One only hopes that he doesn’t board a wrong flight.
Since there are buyers ranging from bored housewives to perky youngsters to over-worked executives the ‘How to…’books will help the country men in realizing their dreams. Any help to satiate the cravings of a stressed society looking for external approval is up for grabs. And if the pearls of wisdom are from our very own leaders, it would be so enlightening.
Most men are in awe of a leader from the south, with dark glasses. Why? Well, when most can’t manage one, he has managed the enviable task of maintaining three wives with such grace and élan. It aint easy to distribute television channels, real estate and bank balances to all three and their children. And to remember three anniversaries when most can’t remember one! How about a user friendly manual by the DMK boss with tips, ‘The power of three’.
Coming back to Yeddyurappa, last year, allegedly he summoned a protective cloak around himself when a rebel MLA had undertaken a donkey sacrifice to eliminate him. By the way, I request him to write a book so that other hapless souls, other than the hapless donkey, can get precious advice on ‘How to ward off enemies’.Yet, his worries are far from over. Going by the advice of tantriks, what if human sacrifice is next on the list? I am sure the publishers will lap every account of, ‘Black magic for surviving all odds’ by Yeddyurappa.
A tome as memorable and perhaps as appropriate as Barack Obama’s, ‘Audacity of Hope,’ a story told by one of the country’s greatest leaders, who realized that the only hope for a modern nation is to ward off the effects of black magic. A compelling read!
