If you’d been a Congress councillor for four terms, and then Bangalore’s mayor, and news reporters still didn’t know who you were, would you be mad?
Twitter user Karthik (@) noticed a hilarious blunder in the Times of India’s reportage of an incident in Bangalore where a building collapsed and trapped ten people.

This is how the Times of India captioned its photo:
But Bangalore Mirror got it right:
The Times of India later acknowledged the error but we’re still cracking up about it.

Just another day in the life of a leader of a women-majority municipal council!
