It is surprising that in spite of the stringent drive against traffic violations, cars with tinted windows and car TVs are a constant sight on Delhi’s roads. Surely the traffic police should patrol the roads at night also? These are much more dangerous than the phones.
Delhi’s traffic police is doing a fine job. But buses need to be disciplined. The incessant honking of horns by Blueline drivers must be checked. Buses continue to race or stop in the middle of the road without any police paying attention. It is futile to have a traffic drive if public transport is not controlled.
The shootout at Virginia Tech is yet another blot on the American dream. Violence on campuses and schools in the US are not unheard of but seem to have increased down the years. It is high time that US lawmakers strengthen the gun control laws.
The killings by the South Korean student is shocking and should be condemned. The incident just shows that the mantra of modern development is not benefiting society in any meaningful manner. We only have to revisit the graph of progress to see that we are fast losing the essence of human values.
The bloodbath is shocking. The authorities should be blamed for not acting on time and shutting down the university campus. People in the US have far too easy an access to weapons. There is a dire need to arrest the gun culture.
The protests of the Shiv Sena and other outfits over the Gere-Shilpa kiss reek of hypocrisy. It is doubtful whether the act was at all required while spreading Aids awareness, but nonetheless, it is a two-faced approach to the issue.
