The Beauty of Double Standards

What happened to the people who proclaimed to make Republic day a no-show? Delhi Times carried an interesting piece today about all those people who were a part of the protests against the Delhi gang rape case. It said people were out for an extended weekend. Some of them vowed not to watch the celebrations on television. One of them said “Gussa to ab bhi hai, par apni security bhi to important hai na?”

It is a pity public memory is short lived. The rage and anguish subsides after sometime. What is more important is not just a street demonstration but a deeper introspection on why   the things are the way they are.
