They came, they saw, they shot and what do we do now???

Well they came by sea and this has been confirmed by Govt. of India. They killed 100s and I strongly believe that the number given by Govt of Indiais highly deflated one. Great bloggers like Nitin Pai and GreatBong have written at lengths about this carnage(I am sorry for those who call it tragedy). It was nothing more that cold blooded massacre of people in India. The suggestion and thoughts by both these bloggers have been bang on target. But then, this stupid Congress government is not expected to be able to achieve anything.

So here are my suggestions(well when everyone has one, why should I not chip in)

There are three ways to deal with the situation.

1. Pseudo-Gandhian way -- Take out rally and protest creating havoc for the people who are already suffering at the hands of the government. The candle lights protest as well as going at lengths of giving memorandum to the political brasses all fall in this category. I hail from the city known of late more for protests than anything else and I strongly believe that this hardly rings bells for anything good. Its the tool of the political opportunists. This is definitely going to be the favored mode of protest for most people. A fine example is of a person who was searching for media contact after a gruesome rape of his/her friend's maid.

2. Gandhigiri way -- These guys will follow something like this, send a bouquet and a condolence  card to Mr Rahul Gandhi, regretting the death of her mother Mrs Sonia Gandhi during the terror attack. Probably if sent in millions it will open the eyes of the Congress loyalists who only care about money and Gandhi family.

3. Gandhi way -- What Mahatma Gandhi would have had done probably is that he would have had marched with all his followers to the terror camps and the LeT offices. Next thing to be done would be to ask them to kill them right away, if he had guts.

I dont know what to do frankly. But if I am sure of anything, its that the Pseudo Gandhi way is not the way forward. There has to be another way to wake up this sleeping government. I am not sure which of the Indian would be able to rise up to the challenge and come up with the perfect answer.

BTW I am still pondering over any kind of fatwa being issued in this regard.

End of all rants about 26/11
