Mandela Telugu Movie

We just completed our elections in Tamilnadu on Tuesday together with Kerala and Pondicherry. The elections was held over one day and was largely peaceful as can be expected in our state.

West Bengal for example has their elections spread over 8 phases and 8 different days and is still in the progress.  The Feral Nomad ‘If you are in doubt, just be still, and rest will be taken cared of’.
