Knee jerk reactions galore...

My cousin pointed out something very weird about the security scene in Bangalore these days. She told me that post 26/11, security has been tightened at the major hotels in Bangalore; alas, that is not the case at other places (certainly not at Manyata tech park). On the first morning after the attack, they increased security checks rampantly (only at the building lobbies--read my first post for the gory details); however, since last monday history has chosen to repeat itself.

These are typical knee jerk reactions to keep the general public at bay! (much like giving a crying child a candy to keep him quiet). What can we do to show our "leaders" and the concerned authorities that we are aware of the sham?

Ideas anyone?

I apologize for senseless Babri outrageouness

i apologize for calculated Godhra massacre and numerous encounters

i apologize for sowing the seeds of separation in 1947

i apologize for advocating it

i apologize for secretly thanking my stars for not being born in your home

i apologize for making you feel an outsider in my every action and inaction

and i am ready to die by your bullet if that is the only way to pay for my sins

Because i am you

i pledge that from now on i will see to it

that i absolve myself of my sins in this life

But please do know that when you kill me, you will be killing yourself

because you are me.

I do write this in the comfort of my house

far away from the place you shot me down

But died i have, a thousand times,

and i am still alive waiting for you to forgive,respect and love me.
