Have been Wondering what this Pongal/ Lohri/ Sankranthi would be like even before the festivities have started. Call me miopic, cynic, or negative thoughted. Well not going into what the words and their usage means, I just felt something odd right from the moment the Noida killings surfaced. When I was reading them, the first thing that came to me was : Oh my god Why are so many people killed? and why haven’t the administration moved a straw? and why at all have these people travelled so long? call it migration to such insane places, for a living ofcourse stupid.

Can we do anything about that solutions quick ones easy ones psch? No And why are the ULFA killing the poor BIHARIs mercylessly. What would happen to the states economy while 10,000 and odd Bihari migrant labourers working in Brick kilns, factories, plantations and all those menia (so called) jobs. Migration again but why are they migrating to such distant places. Leaving their families, near and dears to an UNKNOWN land ?

I am Sorry but a festive occassion doesnt demand all that but lets celebrate their deaths. Whatelse can we do what else just switch on the TV pour some sympathy and witch it off everything is normal. Cant we do something no but who are we theres a government and tehres babus who are already courrupt what are they for. We have a Munnabhai, a Rang de basanthi a shikar, a lagan, a Gandhi (who have been statuefied), an ambedkar (dittoo), and whole gambit of heroes who we molt and make them statues so that they never come amonst us and ask us to do something. One garland every year and done.

And the thoughts stopped there for a long time, it was just painful to think of girls women, boys young being killed (there were reports of canibalism!) and even before we could forget something like that (this is one thing I hate people tend to forget things as soon as they are passed and get back to normalcy as if nothing happened) there were other things that surfaced. Here in Andhra pradesh a two member death squad (dont assume they are huge and rowdies) killed people and you know for what for peanuts little cash some change so that they can drink. The killers migrants daily wagers. Of late theres another resurfacing bad news the missing girls from Godavary districts of Andhra Pradesh who land up in the flesh trade.

To top it all I have just seen a film on Women traficking can you believe it that was by a commercial hero a mass one (dont ask me how the film was I hated it but the issue was atleast highlighted.) Jr NTR starring in RAKHI. My mind was totally blocked and couldnt help but think that women should be in closed doors (I know even I pity myself for the thought) but that was the intensity of fear all these things created in me what if even they are momentary.

Wonderful but whats happening with our society a learned one as we call it our selves. The oldest continuing civilisations of the plannet (Of course the dialougue is from the same film).

Yeah but Iam sorry I cant wish any thing better in this mood Iam down and deeply moved by te plight of women and children who are missing and ever piling up in statistics. What do we do any ideas………?

I probably dont have any but if any of you have lemme know ? !

    I have viewed many movies and documentaries on this topic and it’s sad, it’s such a HUGE market, I would not even know how to strike at this, I hope someone figures it out someday 😦
