    • This is the first time ……. what lead to this explosion? – Drones

      Well, if you direct that question at our Namma Kudla’da TVS/LUNA Yumreeki Rampa he would say:

      1. Sanaaaathaaanaaa Dwesha

      2. Plot by Western Masters (Plot..as in ploy… not ‘land’ yaar… the plot Patent owned by Praveena Pinto ‘opp cojj’)

      3. Somebody kept ‘Fork steaks’ in da ‘Prijjge’. Expanding gases blew it. Ahem!

      4. All of the above.

  1. Noor Jahan R.I.P

    I do not know what to make of this report, am I missing something.

    Apparently, the refrigerator was not new. So how does the opening of the door trigger a short circuit? and that blows the compressor. Even if there was a short circuit, I would think that the coils of the motor would have burnt.

  2. My sincere apologies to the family of this woman on behalf an individual who posted insensitive remarks as if this was some silly incident. Again, there is time and place for everything. Hope he understands his mistake.
