How shocking and how sad that Ravinder, an E-Rickshaw driver in Delhi was beaten to death by 15 youth because he told 2-3 of their friends NOT TO URINATE IN PUBLIC AND USE THE TOILET INSTEAD. Ravinder, who by design spends his life on the roads daily took the initiate to make and clean our cities and country clean and he gets bludgeoned to death in the most brutal manner and in public. Delhi, and ALL of us need to decide what kind of India and future we want?

The Naga rebels have been continuing a blockage of the national highway to Manipur for over 45 days. This is causing acute shortage of petrol, diesel and essential commodities and causing enormous hardship to the people of the Manipur – it is really an emergency like situation. This blockage is illegal, the central government has said so. The central government should use all means necessary, including force to remove the blockage and ensure the return of normalcy and rule of law.

Irom Sharmila, from Manipur, who has been on a 16 year fast, i.e. since 2000, against the Indian government seeking an abolishment of the AFSPA – the Armed Forces Special Protection Act – will end her fast in two weeks. Her determination is understood, but hope she and others need to appreciate the sacrifices and risk our armed forces face in disturbed areas and they in visible and invisible battle with extremely armed and lethal enemies. The soldiers have difficult jobs, and they are deployed to keep or restore peace as in J&K, and some parts of the North-East India. The AFSPA would not be needed if there were any major disturbances in affected areas. She is today 43 years. She had refused to eat or drink anything, so the government was left with no choice but to create a separate ward to feed her thru a tube, at it may be noted at great cost to the taxpayers. Her announcement is sudden and has taken all by surprise. All must wonder and perhaps analyze if this fast was worth it?
