Where's The Party...

Terrorism in India has almost become a K-serial saga. The intensity, the casualty and of course the melodrama the good old 'party' folks is ever increasing. With all the blast in one single year, I really wonder how the country shall sustain few more that are inevitable since I can’t perceive any change in the system that shall effectively combat the menace.

Things are taking an even worse turn with Ram Gopal Verma trying to deliver his Mumbai ki Aag. All the congress can do is to go on a resignation spree. With the number of people leaving the hapless Union Government, I wonder how much it will be left with in the end. The BJP is actually no better and has smartly avoided starting a blame game match. (We have been saved. All the blame and the counter blame would have been an insult to the cause) Their Sadhvi-bachao-andolan is all hushed up. (Also the Thakeray sena) The Congress has had to bear the brunt of high profile terrorism while the BJP has gifted us citizens with Babri Masjid demolitions and Godhra riots. The only alternative is the Prakash Karat sect but then bang- on! Winning votes to them and you see the UP queen as PM.

With no ostensible alternatives, we the citizens are being compelled to lose hope, and to carry on with our lives crouching down in our own land to save ourselves from the communal demagogues and anti- national forces. Unfortunately we all aren’t made of brave CafĂ© Leopold stuff. (Hats off to them, for defeating the cause of the aggressors.) A friend told me that by being afraid we are amplifying our own defeat. But then the question that obviously arises is that what we can do. If the reservation bill could conceive a Youth for Equality, then can’t a heinous act of terror give way to better governance? Its show time for the aam aadmi. And we just need to make full use of it.
