Calm Like a Bomb

Friday, October 12, 2007

Arjun Sen, of the blog Rantings of a Gaged Journalist, writes about how the poor in India are a ticking time bomb ready to lash out against the authorities:

That is why even in Left-ruled West Bengal the so-called communists make sure that the administration and the law enforcement agencies protect the interests of the rich rather than the poor, and, to do so, resort to even murder, if necessary. Can you imagine living in a state where the police go about murdering an ordinary law abiding citizen simply because he has gone against the desires of someone who is not just a rich fatso but also has a criminal record to boot? So, a poor law abiding citizen is murdered by the police a few days after his marriage because his rich and criminal father-in-law wanted the police to do so.

    I quite agree with Arjun that the time bomb is ticking almost unstoppably. Those who should be doing something about it are busy having the time of there life, thanks to the democracy that they have made a mockery of and converted into a ‘mockocracy’. Is a revolution to follow? I don’t know but the signs are not very encouraging, notwithstanding the fact that I am personally celebrating the 18k sensex!
