Weak Week

Lets look at some of the breaking news from India this week:

  • There were protests over Nandigram everywhere including the Lok Sabha.
  • A protest over Taslima Nasreen's visa renewal went wrong and its curfew time in Kolkata.
  • Serial bomb blasts in Uttar Pradesh.
  • Tribals clash with locals in Guwahati.

Is there a point in all this? Is there a end to all this? These numb my thought process. I can't watch the news channels on TV anymore. I am avoiding reading the newspaper front page. I start with the last page of the main paper (Sports page: an old habit) and stop somewhere in the fourth or fifth page and move on to the supplements. I have shelved all non-fiction books, and am reading Harry Potter. Its much better reading about the schemes of you-know-who of the wizard world against Harry Potter than you-don't-know-why-things-are-happening in the muggle world.

North : Bomb Blasts in UP
South : Karnataka ka natak
East : Nandigram..

Update me on what is happening in the west...

KAbhi kabhi dar lagta hai about staying in India...

It is a times like these when you actually wonder about the value of a human life in our country. Is there any? The Ansals get only 2 yrs of jail for the Uphaar case. & that too they get an immediate bail.

@Om
The Wild West is quiet at this point in time. The calm before the storm?

@mindinamaze
Good question! The reactive answer would be "No, there's no value of human life in India anymore". Hope I am wrong!
