Social media is a place where anybody can express, share and interact with other all over the world. It plays a vital role in our day-to-day lives. People use social media in many ways especially to share the activities happening in their lives.
Though people share it for fun or entertainment, sometimes it may land in a big problem as well. One such person is K Suryanarayana, a real estate broker from Bengaluru. Nowadays, each and every person is on social media and it is obvious that whatever you post will catch the attention of all the users.
Suryanarayana has landed himself in a trouble in his attempt to please the Gods. He organized a pooja at his place in the name of Goddess Varalakshmi. For this special Pooja ceremony, a huge sum worth Rs. 88 lakh was withdrawn from the bank to offer to the goddess. In addition, he decked the room with gold weighing 1.23 kg.
But the only mistake he committed is taking the pictures of the pooja and uploading them on social media. Soon, the pictures flooded on the Internet and tossed Suryanarayana in the eye of the storm. The photos captured Suryanarayana and his wife offering a huge amount of cash and gold, which he described as his ‘hard earned’ money.
According to the reports, the broker went on to say that he had withdrawn Rs 88 lakh from the bank for the pooja and used 1.23kg gold to decorate his pooja room. However, the photos have raised several controversies and people who saw the viral photos on social media aren’t convinced.
Questions are being asked about how, at a time when income tax officers are raiding Congress leader DK Shivakumar’s place, people like Suryanarayana are escaping the IT net despite such show of wealth.
People expressed their wonders as, how could he escape income tax raids. Suryanarayana, however, defended himself saying that he has earned both the cash and gold through ‘honest means’. Suryanarayana claimed to have paid Rs 13 lakh tax this year against his Rs 15 crore assets.
The real estate broker also expressed his regret for having posted pictures of the pooja pictures at his place, saying that it ‘put him in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons’.
