Baba's miracle fails to click

Sri Satya Sai Baba all of a sudden announced that he would be visible in the moon. The announcement came at around 5.00 pm on Thursday. He said his Vishwaroopam will appear on the moon between 7.00 pm and 7.30 pm. Thousands of his followers including those who do not have faith in him throned the Puttaparthi airport to witness the event. But the event did not take place as the sky was overcast with clouds. Sri Satya Sai Baba returned to his ashramam leaving his devotees disappointed.

The 82-year-old Baba's sudden announcement took everyone in the State by surprise. Mediapersons and TV channels too rushed to the spot to witness the rare event. Some TV channels announced that there will be a live telecast.

The rush was so heavy at the airport that even the convoy of the Baba was caught in traffic jam.

Fact Sheet: Son trouble for PJR again

Khairatabad legislator and dissident Congress leader P Janardhan Reddy's son P Vishnuvardhan Reddy is once again in the news for the wrong reasons. After the street fight between him and Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy's brother at Jubilee Hills a couple of months ago, Vishnuvardhan Reddy got involved in a fight at the Imax Theatre on Thursday. The police booked a case against him.

Looks like the son trouble continues to haunt the Congress legislator who is fighting openly against the Chief Minister and his policies which PJR believes are detrimental to the interests of Telangana.

Even before PJR came out of the shock of Jubilee Hills trouble, the Imax fight has further created a dent in his public image. The Congress MLA was just getting a breather with the resignation of APCC chief K Keshava Rao and change of guard in AICC supervision in the State Congress. Thursday's trouble has brought issues to square one and PJR has to cleanse the mess to emerge unscatched from the son trouble.
