Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yediyurappa‘s long friendship with the State’s BJP chief K.S. Eswarappa is a heart-warming story in a cynical, political landscape. Bosom buddies hailing from the same district, both working their way up in the party, the shared scooter rides, the agitations, the jostling, the egos, and finally, power.
The kinship has went through rocky times when the Reddy Brothers raised a banner of revolt last year and Eswarappa was identified with the rebels, but this image at a foundation-laying ceremony in their hometown on Sunday captures a nearly half-century in one nano-second.

The B.S. Yediyurappa photo portfolio
Is it an idol? Is it a statue? Is it a mannequin?
One leg in the chair, two eyes on the chair
Yedi, steady, go: all the gods must be crazy
Kissa Karnataka chief minister’s kursi ka: Part IV
Why did the chief minister cross the road divider?
Sometimes you are up, sometimes you are down
Dressed to thrill: Yedi-Chini bhai bhai in Shanghai
Survival of fittest is a great photo opportunity
Drought relief one day, flood relief the next
How a chief minister should drink tea. (Or not.)
Let the rebels know, the CM will not bow one inch
Even four pairs of hands can’t stave off the flak
Yediyurappa regime slips into yet another sandal
Behind every successful cyclist, there are a few men
Life’s a cycle. What goes up must come down.
