    Dasara celebrations in Srirangapatna? Why stop here. Why not in Mandya , Ramanagara and even in Bangalore? Then there is Hubballi, Belagavi and Kalburgi! Go on!
    Opportunities for ministers and official;s to award contracts and get 40% commission.
    These Seers are not spiritual leaders. They are politicos.
