True, the root cause of the ferocity above was the partition. But it is not the cause that concerns me now. What stupefies me is the extent of mindless cruelty humanity is capable of. And cruelty has two faces. The face that we saw in the Delhi bus and the faces that we watch in the hypocrisy ridden advanced technology age, those teeth gnashers in the idiot box.
“The warring communities seemed to rival each other in savagery. A British officer of the Punjab Boundary Force discovered four Moslem babies ‘roasted like piglets on spits in a village raided by Sikhs’. Another found a group of Hindu women, their breasts methodically mutilated by Moslem zealots, being headed for slaughter.”

Thank you for your understanding. I do seriously think that we are standing on the cliff, or perhaps have started to slip already into the depth of endless gloom. Time for introspection. Where are we headed?
|I empathise with you and am inspired to write briefly: I have often wondered at how the Bhaaratian [meaning Indian] cinema glorifies the actions of 'boys' heckling 'girls'. It seems unfortunate to me that the people with influence -such as in cinema, news etc. are unable to get us out of this cycle of decline. On the other hand, how could our 'boys' become so senseless as to not understand what is right and wrong, and act righteously? It really begs the question too, is god asleep? Does 'he' have to wait for some catastrophy to act [just like us!]? I mean, a little constant preventive maintenance on 'his' part should avoid us all the kind of tragedies we are experiencing. My heart goes out to our 'girls' who have to suffer at the hands of us 'boys'. My condolences and prayers to the victims of the recent rape and killing of a 'girl' in Bhaarat [India]. May we get the strength to become closer to goodliness much quicker.|
