How insensitive we, the Indians, are?

Posted on: October 25, 2010

The Indians, it seems, have become utterly insensitive to everything around them except when something concerns the Mandir or Masjid. The reports of child rape do not move them, the children falling ill after consuming the mid-day meal in schools does not stir their conscience and the misdeeds of the bureaucrats do not upset them unless their personal interests are involved. The periodic raids by the food department bring to the notice of the people the spurious ghee, paneer or mava being sold in the market. The business becomes usual after a day or two.
What was witnessed recently in Bhopal surpassed all the previous records of the proverbial tolerance by the Indians. A consumer of Nehru Nagar locality purchased a packet of Sanchi ghee and spotted inside a dead rat. Sanchi is the brand name for the products of Bhopal Milk Federation which is the major supplier of milk products in and around Bhopal.
On the consumer’s complaint, the food inspectors raided the Federation plant only to see creatures of various species floating in the ghee which was being boiled in containers. The next day, almost all the newspapers in Bhopal flashed photographs showing worms in the containers full of ghee at the Bhopal Milk Federation plant.
However, there was not even a whimper of protest from the people. What is more, it did not have any adverse effect on the usual crowds before the Sanchi Milk Parlours.

Outright Perilous!

An egoist as the head of the government is bad enough. An egotist is a nuisance as his constant chant of I…, I…., I….. jars on the listeners’ years. But when he loses touch with the reality and starts believing his imaginary achievements to be his real achievements, that’s outright perilous.
