The cherubic, cheerful and charismatic chairman of 'Country Club', Y.Rajeev Reddy has been diagnosed with a strange medical condition that 'paralyses' his right arm in his trademark 'thumbs-up' position. Contrary to popular belief, Mr.Reddy doesn't just strike the pose at the drop of a hat, but actually has no choice in the matter – his arm and thumb are locked in the position.

“Of course, it's true. What kind of idiot would randomly appear everywhere in the same cheesy pose out of his own free will?”, asked an irate Reddy, annoyed at the insinuation that he was merely trying to develop a 'style' of his own. “And before you ask . . . no, I'm not going to endorse Thums-Up.”, he barked irritably, before suddenly breaking into a grin, winking, and waving his permanent thumbs-up based hand at members of the public.
"Do you realize how hard it is for him to perform normal, everyday tasks like button up his suits, sign cheques, and play Call of Duty 4 on an XBOX controller? Leave him alone. Leave Mr.Reddy alone!", yelled Britney Spears, CHris Crocker and Seth Green in unison (not to be confused with the world-renowned medical imaging product from Manmar Technologies).
The revelation has not been received well by Reddy's legions of fans.
“This somehow isn't quite the same”, said a downcast Mansi Gandhi, a long time fan and aspiring member of Counry Club. “ The pose was so rakish. So dynamic. So macho. Now they're saying it was all a lie. I've been living a LIE!”, she sobbed uncontrollably.
“This won't do at all”, said Sankalesh Jimmy, who was planning to create a range of poseable action-figures of Mr.Reddy for the international and domestic markets. “What will happen to the thrill of buying a Rajeev Reddy action-figure, and then posing it in that unforgettable pose? Woe is us.”, he added rather dramatically, before setting off for China to discuss design changes with the manufacturers.
Some have reacted with disbelief, and have dismissed the news as rumours and hearsay propogated by Mr.Reddy's enemies.
“Rubbish. This is absurd. What will they tell us next, that Pluto isn't really a planet?”, said an unusually animated Jai Shankar Iyer, demonstrating his keen grasp on reality and current affairs.
“Certain things are sacrosanct. Like the bible, the theory of gravity, and Rajeev Reddy's trademark pose. They're not to be messed with”, said Nandini Reddy, no relation. This also marks the debut of the word 'sacrosanct' on Son of Bosey.
“Maybe it's a bit of both. Perhaps his hand got locked in to the position simply because of repeated use of the pose for long hours. It's possible. Plausible – not impossible. I'm irascible. Like a crucible.”, said wildlife photographer S.U.Saravanakumar, in a rare simultaneous display of balanced opinion and mean street rap rhyming skills.

All this however, has hardly made a dent in the schedule of the irrepressible Mr.Reddy. He was last seen discussing a new advertising campaign depicting him as the Statue of Liberty, for launching Country Club properties in the United States.
