Scribbles

October 17, 2011

I write. I delete. I write. I delete.

There are things on my mind… but they seem to be the repetition of things I’ve said so often that I just don’t feel like giving them more space. More rants about the system and everything that is going wrong. Ugh.

But then, it seems like the entire world is poised on the verge of a revolution. Protests and crusades everywhere. Even in that ‘we are perfect’ US of A. Finally, the common man speaks. Even as the entire world was bracing for World War III, it seems this is going to be an internal war first. Of course, that could delay WW IV for another couple of decades or so.

I spent a little bit of time today browsing through some old posts, because of an ‘anonymous’ comment on one of them.

Anonymous comments have become the trend on my blog. Particularly on controversial posts, or posts related to Indian women, religion or such. I do generally publish every comment positive or negative… but when these comments are abusive and anonymous, I do not think I should publish. If you want to say something, least have the courage to put a name to your comments.

A little bit of the news from my city.

The biggest news yesterday was about the arrest of the former CM of Karnataka. Every newspaper covered it. And it was quite interesting how they all had a different take on the news that was basically “Former CM arrested on corruption charges.”
