A Stupid Common Man…….the so called Aam Aadmi*


The image depicts the Common Man - drawn by Laxman
The common man of India is not over-reacting to the current circumstances in India. Each one of us infact is terrified with the several blasts that have shattered busy metros/ cities in India. We are afraid and helpless and we the so called “common man” cannot do anything to prevent this from happening.

We feel powerless!!!

The recent bomb blasts in Ahmedabad, Jaipur, New Delhi, Mumbai, Malegoan have traumatized each citizen of this country - each common man of this country. When we go out of our home on our daily voyage, we are not sure, whether we will return home at all……..or even if we return home, would we be back in one piece.

Is it that the group of people causing this destruction in India is smarter and intelligent than the Indian police and the so called state authorities?

This is an earnest call to the state authorities, the various democratic parties in India, to come together and fight this war against terror.

We cannot afford to play politics on this subject of terror. We need to place our grudges, personal wars aside and collectively and mutually destroy the terrorists group. These terrorists communities are fundamentally trying to disintegrate our unity to destroy India. They are essentially banking on our politically rivalry amongst each other – our hatred towards each other, to play their terror games.

As said by Mahatma Gandhi, "Unity to be real must stand the severest strain without breaking."

This article of mine is inspired from the movie “A Wednesday” which is a remarkable film with theatre at its best. It talks about how we have been allowing these attacks to happen in our country without rectifying the problem till today.

In nervousness and extreme anxiety, the common man someday will be forced to take law in his hand. And this would lead to chaos in the country!

If you are an Indian and you haven’t seen the movie yet……I persuade you to go and watch it….its a fantastic film. And even if you cannot comprehend Hindi, I still persuade you to grab a DVD of this film with an English subtitle.
