When the Highly Deprived Ask for a Little Bit of Privilege

This is what happens then.

More as a rule than an exception.

Don’t just read the title of this news story. Read all of it. And look at the photos. And read the captions.

This news attracted my attention even more because I had stayed for one day in this area while coming back from a seminar. That was the Durga Puja time and everything looked normal. Very peaceful. And joyous. The thought actually crossed my mind that it won’t be bad to settle in a place like this.

Just a few weeks ago.

I hope you remember (or know, if you are not an Indian) that ‘rallyists going on a rampage’ is a very very common occurrence in India and nothing much happens to most of those rampaging rallyists most of the time. Because most of them most of the time are not tribals, i.e., people without much support from any quarters.
