    This Droupadi Murmu looks very darker than those who appear along with the photograph, clearly indicating that she belong to the schedule tribe
    community, who would have got her privileges, because she from that community.
    Look at the bunch of corrupt neanderthals who are inviting this tribal person! All of them willpocket hefty cash after Dasara, when the contractors givethem 40% commission.
    There is no sense of merit, and achievements any more in India, as everything is driven by the backward claste and SC/ST reservations.
    She was selected, because, she could be manipulated by Narendra Modi.
    Remember, this position was once held by Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who the whole world respected.
    The degeneraation of India, after 75 years of independence.

    OK, this elected president of India, which became a democracy and a republic 70+ years ago, is going to come to Mysore city to inaugurate the Dastra 2022, which is renamed as a ‘Nadahubba’, as it was disassociated with Durbar which ended in 1969, when the governor JC Wadiyar had his last Durbar, which was a nonsense any way, as he was no longer a Maharaja, but continued behaving like one with a titular imagination!
    Is this president, also going to witness the nonsensical act of a young Urs person, renamed as Yaduveer Wadiyar, by a deluded landlady -Pramoda Devi, sitting in that ;large bungalow called Palace, climbing a golden chair called throne, in a room of just 20 people, calling it a private Durbar? How does this square up with the elected president of democratic India, and some one pretending to be a Maharaja, when such thing does not exist, in the same room , in this bungalow called Palace in India, practising a feudal nonsensical act?
    Just abolish this crapact called private Durbar, make this Palace, a national museum, and remove these remnants called Wadiyar family from the place, so that they can elsewhere as citizens, like all Mysoreans do.
