'He is so fair, he should have been a bit taller'

March 25, 2008
He is so fair and good looking, but he should have been a bit taller." This was the first reaction of the tribal women at Muthugadagadde, B R Hills in Karnataka's Chamarajnagar district where Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi kick-started his five-day Karnataka tour.

Machamma and scores of other women who waited since morning for the arrival of the junior Gandhi were ecstatic when the man finally arrived to a traditional welcome. Machamma said that such big leader has never come to their hamlet and added that since he is the only politician to come here, she would vote for him.
