This about the in-efficiency of Indian police which is still in the British-Nehruvian era like our netas...

This is regarding Sabarimala... is this a new myth created by our 'seclar' media?

Rajeev,

Finally, someone wrote it. The last paragraph in Swapan's article is something I have been shouting from rooftops for years now and in India, "respect the old" syndrome has fed to this...pronounced inferiority complex and servitude.

He hits the nail on the head, "political india lives in mental captivity. The merger of politics and swabhiman is overdue"...much like your MMS growing spine in a petri dish comment.
