Thursday Blog 28.2.13

This month is about those who were supposed to be protector but became the monsters of nightmares.

This year one of the most pious fairs of Hindus is being held in a place near Allahabad, on the banks of Ganges where millions are visiting for a dip in the holy water of the river.

The local government woke up from its decade’s long hibernation all of a sudden, and started to destroy “illegal” structures in name of beautifications, as a result hundreds of people were made jobless as their kiosks were pulled down on one pretext or the other.

Now I know beautification is good, but is it necessary to snatch away the daily bread from the poorest people in name of beautification? These people might have made some good money during this month.
Shame on those who can be so cold and merciless!

  1. Beauty gained for destroying independent vendors. Politics – the squeaky wheels turned after much greasing. We a law here called Eminent Domain, basically the government take what ever land they want when they want it. And they don’t always use that law to protect the people. After all multiple lane highway roads are important too aren’t they? How many farms can we build apartment housing on until we run out of land that is capable of producing the food we need? I hope someone comes up with some good answers soon – or there will be nothing left for the newest generations.

    Thank you for your visits.
