The Week That Was...

Some really tragic and shocking events took place in the week gone by.

The pointless and senseless death of Aman Kachroo due to injuries suffered during ragging at a medical college in Himachal Pradesh. The irony is that it were the people who were aspiring to be doctors who save lives caused his untimely death. Just think of Aman's parents who lost their young son. Ragging still takes place in all colleges, it is a fact. But nothing is done, even the Supreme Court's recommendations have not been implemented. Aman belonged to a well to do Kashmiri Pandit family, but this event though it has national repercussions I guess alienates the Kashmiri pandits even more who are already finding it difficult to make ends meet. Now no parent would want to send their children to far off colleges.

The bone chilling footage of the 26/11 attack at Trident was released. The way those bastards were roaming and killing people just sends shivers down the spine. There were hotel staff roaming about without thinking that death was lurking at the corner. The scars have still not healed and here comes another shocker as I write, US asks India to withdraw troops from the border. Why should we? To give a free path to those terrorists to stage another attack. No, Mr. Obama, not acceptable.

Even as the world was coming to terms with the horrific event of Joseph Fritzl who was convicted of charges of incest by raping his daughter for 24 years and fathering 7 children, the news of a business man from Mumbai, who had been raping his daughter for 9 years acting on the advice of a 'tantrik' that by committing such acts he would get rich and lead a better life! That son of a bitch did not see that by ruining his daughter's life, how could he be happy. Shocking!

Varun Gandhi's remarks about the Muslims as Pakistanis and his mockery of their names and comparison to Osama Bin Laden are absolutely astonishing. His father Sanjay Gandhi was a thug and he seems to be going the communal way. What a contrast to come from one of world's best known families!! He says the tapes are doctored, people are not idiots Varun! He thinks that the BJP won't get Muslim votes anyway, so why not target Hindu vote but Mr. Gandhi think it this way, by such distasteful statements you end up alienating the moderate Hindu vote leaving you just with right wing fanatics. Use your brain!

There is so much happening every single day at the political scene,more so because of the General Elections arriving. It has just started and I am pretty sure, a whole bonanza of such events in the political arena awaits us. Watch this space.
