I am not usually the type to grudge holidays, but when you are “forced” to sit at home and do nothing because of some brainless morons, then it gets reallly irritating.
To make the “situation” clearer – an actor with a lot of clout ( as I see now), Dr.Rajkumar, passed away yesterday afternoon, not by any means a murky affair. He was old and had a heart failure.Simple! (and peace be on his soul! ahem)
With all due respect to Dr.Rajkumar, I believe this sort of paying “homage” is totally unwarranted and ridiculous.You can’t expect anyone to believe that burning buses, closing shops and stoning people constitutes mourning! Its just simply and amazingly stupid. I don’t think he received so much “adulation” and fan support when he was living. I just can’t come to terms with their feelings.What could it possibly be? I am sad, so lets throw everyone else’s life out of balance too! And from the TV footage I saw , none of them looked even remotely sad. Infact, they looked happy to have an excuse to show off their hooliganism! Those BUggerss!! So nehow, this is how I come to be like this – totally “velaa” , without a thing to do, cant go outside cuz everything’s been shut down , all the channels are off-air too (except for news which I cant really watch for more than 10 min!) and to top it all, my ” unforced holiday” tommorow has been snatched away from me! Aarrghh..Boneheaded Nincompoopps..I have an even more vindictive vocabulary hiding inside mee, but shalll not let it out, due to my concern for public innocence! 😀
