Thus goes a famous story:
Former MP from Bellary Basavarajeshwari had a brother. Years ago, when he invited mediapersons to lunch, he would stress:"Please eat well. We dont know if you will get to eat dinner".
At a recent press meet, we were recalling this and laughing. One of my friends remarked that mediapersons had come a long way since those days to these days of 100k salaries and OB van drives. Just then, former MLA Gundappa Vakil said:"All the media friends should join us for lunch. We dont know how many of you have had breakfast".
Contrary to public opinion, times have not changed.
