An Emerging Superpower


Where the intellectual, but non voting, citizens criticized their few educated, dynamic leaders


While the un-employed looked for non issues to keep themselves occupied


Mumbai was attacked


Lost daredevils in the first few hours


Its pride is compromised


Icons burn


Hundreds die


The home minister wastes the night while his suit is ironed • “They had left by the time I had reached” when asked about the identities of the terrorists at CST & Cama hospital. • He got away with a resignation…..


Chief Minister Vilas Rao Deshmukh • I am in Kerala, trying to reach Mumbai : Four hours after the crisis is on TV

• Refuses to Resign


Heros enter


The media compete to get each bit of news first, spread rumors, compromise operational details by airing them for ‌ the terrorists


Some are happy it’s over…


Rajiv Gandhi era rhetoric continues: “Hume dekhna hai, Hum dekh rahe hain, Hum dekhte rahenge”


Opposition does what it is best at : OPPOSE EVERYTHING


Power hungry lose out on prime time TV


Daughter of the Nation ! • “My grandmother would have done things differently”

• Nobody asked : “What stopped her mother ?”


R R Patil, Dy CM Maharashtra • Bade shaharon mein aise ek adh hadse hote rahte hain. Woh 5000 logon ko marne aye the lekin humne kitna kum nuksan hone diya - &*#@ tu kiya kya ? -FINALLY RESIGNS


Citizens conduct meaningless candle marches & send angry SMSs


• Page 3 celebrities talked about the immense damage to the iconic Taj heritage building. • “How sad it was to lose the chef who made those wonderful pizzas.” • None of them knew the exact death toll at the Railway station firing… Do you know?


The non voting intelligentsia found each possible future leader lacking for some reason or the other


So now, do you want your children to curse you?

• For doing nothing. • You have the option to make a difference to stand up and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH – we will change this system • You can decide that the educated will administer, while the army will bring law & order to this chaos.

Why do you always wait for somebody else to do things, while you just rant and rave?
