Life

I love life, and it is means to live it. I may not always feel this way, not everyday atleast. I don't think anyone feels this way, well.. unless your Fidel, he seems to love the world and living it every day.

The latest pressing issue for me, is the death of Kugan. Malaysia is talking about it, India is celebrating Republic Day and making plans to elude the eclipse that is also occuring today.

He died while under police interrogation, and a forum that I've been a part of is spewing a lot of distaste for the incident. In all my objectivity, I refuse to address the matter as a racially motivated incident, as I strongly feel that dying under interrogation is relatively common incident that occurs every where in the world. And it is wrong, and it needs to be battled for what it is, an abuse of power more than, having a country up in arms angry at the so called 'racial attack'.

Yes we understand that there may be many layers to any conflict, and this is just a tip in the iceberg of discontention & disillusionment of the Indian populace. We all however, know of the story where the boy cried wolf too many times.

Let me re-iterate, it is not that this issue is not important.. I just don't see the issue as being exclusive or racially driven.
