For example, a TV program was asking for audition videos, and had provided an Android and an iOS ...

Re: Statewide and National runup to 2014 General elections

That would mean adding two Rayalaseema districts – Anantapur and Kurnool – to the Telangana districts


I do not see how this is going to happen. Why will Anantapur and Kurnool people accept being a part of Telangana? There will be a massive unrest the likes of which no body will be able to control.
