Malya bought the Tippu's sword from some british auctioner who claimed that sword was the last sword used by tippu before he died. That particular sword is already in mysore. It was not the last sword but one of the sword's he used in his time. he paid some 10 Mil for that.
"Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction"
But I'm sure Malya will reach there to grab the auction.
I don't know why he does such antics as buying Tippu's sword or this to impress people. Has he forgotten that he is the liquor baron of the country and millions worship him already every day? Not to mention his calendars.
And despite his antics, he will never be able to make it big in politics.
