Happy Birthday Yeddy
Karnataka Chief Minister B.S.Yeddyurappa celebrated his birthday recently, so of course there are many photos celebrating the day all around. Here are some of them.Signs had to compete for space on the bridge over this underpass Signs were written in both English and Kannada, and showed him in both traditional and more formal attire.
At least he said that politicians should share their birthday cakes with the poor, which he did with some slum-dwellers in Bangalore.
Our adventures as we relocate from Washington DC (where I had been teaching about Latin American and applied international economics at the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University) to Bangalore, India, to work at a think tank start up, where I focused on infrastructure-related issues.
