Bas karaa: enough
One more short post linking to something else ... if you understand Marathi, please read T, who signs herself "one ordinary mumbaikar", but is one passionate, articulate lady.

I can't thank you enough for sharing this link. Call me a guilt ridden liberal or whatever else, sharmene maan khaali vakli after reading that. Even though the rational side says that I should not be feeling that way because I don't support the hate campaign, yet the emotional side forces me to feel apologetic on behalf of the community I am proud to call my own, knowing that some members from the community have been brain washed by Thackeray's rhetoric.
It pains even more when I notice a passive support for such a demagogue amongst many of my friends and family.
I am kodumai kodumai.
Listen, I changed my mind -- I am Sriram again.
There is an excellent article in CNN on genocide titled They killed their neighbors: genocide's foot soldiers.
Experts have reached a troubling conclusion: It was actually very easy for the architects of genocide to find more than enough ordinary people to do the killing.
Genocide is often the result of a "perfect storm." A country reeling from political and economic turmoil, a fanatical leader promising to make things better and a vulnerable population targeted for blame -- all combine in a blueprint for mass murder.
Do you think India is reaching there ?
