Yet for all the subtleties…
I just got news from home that colleges in TN have been asked to close until Feb 08, 2009.
Reason? Support for Tamil people suffering in Sri Lanka. Absurd. Ridiculous.
The only good thing that comes out of such a decision is a whole lot of students who can really take a break from the drudgery of college working days are very happy.
Seriously… is it real concern for people who are suffering? Or is it veiled, subtle (or may be not so subtle!!) support for LTTE? The photo in this news clipping makes me think it is the latter.
Oh, I forgot to add…
“Chennai, Jan. 29: A youth burnt himself to death today to protest the Centre’s alleged failure to save Sri Lankan Tamils, a day after Pranab Mukherjee returned from Colombo.
R. Muthukumaran, a 30-year-old DTP operator with a Tamil magazine run by PMK leader S. Ramadoss’s daughter, set himself ablaze at Shastri Bhavan, a complex of central government offices in the heart of Chennai. He was rushed to hospital but succumbed to his burns.”
You know what I think? This fellow, for all his admirable tamil spirit, was just plain DUMB. Who knows what indoctrination he was put through to come to such a stupid decision?
Get the hint between the bold parts? Me thinks so!
When it comes to politics, my friends, our politicians are no better than terrorists!
