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
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
The media compete to get each bit of news first, spread rumors, compromise operational details by airing them for â€Ś 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 â€˘ 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?
