    Minister donates $8.85 Million worth crown to temple in India

    Minister offers Rs42cr crown at Tirupati temple - India - The Times of India

    Karnataka tourism minister and Bellary mine baron Gali Janardhan Reddy will probably be better known for something else: with an offering of a diamond-studded crown worth Rs 42 crore (Rs. 420 Million or $8.85 Million), he became the biggest donor to Lord Venkateswara at Tirupati since the Vijayanagara kings 400 years ago.
    Wow, what a gesture from a democratically elected guy! No wonder India is called a rich country inhabited by poor people. Had he spent half of the money feeding the poor, am sure the deity would have been infinitely more times happy.
