    And how much of Ramnagaram is Gowda-owned ? I can see the family’s fortunes growing, courtesy the districtization! Surely there are other ways of ensuring development.

    Good old “Sholay”!
    The scene at the water tower never fails to crack me up. Especially the two onlookers commenting on the action. They manage to upstage every other actor on the screen. :))
