Do you know who S. Gopal is? No?
Had you passed through Ellis Road on Thursday evening or Friday morning, you would have been enlightened about the important fact that he lives there. Sorry, he lived there, because he kicked the bucket on Thursday.
You would also have been aware that he was a local politician. And like all true politicians, he decided to give a parting kick to the common man, orat least those who were unfortunate enough to pass Ellis Road.
The family and the party decided to make most of his death. So they blocked the road.
Never mind that Ellis Road is one of the important roads in the city housing digital printing and photographic equipment shops.
Gopal is more important than anything else.
Politicians never learn. In fact they ensure they create nuisance even after their death.
