Remember me?

Remember me? All those years ago I broke your back. And I sucked your spirit. And I bought you and left you to dogs? Remember me? I am back again. I have been hungry all along. And I smell blood now. The blood in your veins bursting with anger. What a feast it will be to suck your angry blood and buy you and leave you again. Broken. You don't know what I am talking about? I am the dirtiest little devil of Indian politics. They let me loose when the nation is angry. Like all those years ago. Mandal Commission agitation. All the students around India...oh how angry they were. How deliciously angry. A nation united by anger. Oh ha! ha! What a sell out it was. I bought young, angry students and made them numb. And the rest of you were left to rot with disbelief.
I can sense that same anger now. More, in fact. And I am ready to break your back and leave you numb and stupid. In a few weeks, I would have sucked your anger dry. I have done it before. And I will do it now. Indian politics is unleashing me again.
A nation united by anger. Delicious!

only, this time i think the indian media is doing what politics used to. the inane taglines and petty issues being peddled on tv 24/7 (kerela's cm makes disparaging comments, ram gopal verma visits the taj) these days are unbearable. and it's fanning public opinion, away from issues that never provok/ed such massive reactions - floods in bihar, riots in gujarat, orissa are just some.
and the way the media is reporting the diplomatic (or lack of) dealings is just damaging.

Thanks for the solution.

Nice writing though.

Rizwan, I am like millions of others. I don't have solutions. Only a resolve that only this time, we will not let those in power forget that they have a responsibility. And so do we all.
