Reel...

That was exactly what Bangalore did in reaction to the death of Dr Rajkumar... no, correction,that was what it was made to do... in a city where less than 50% of the population is not native of the state, it is difficult to imagine that the death actually made the entire city mourn... rather, it was fear that made the city come to a halt...a halt which almost got the bachelor population go hungry for a day, which forced all forms of entertainment to be out of access - that included all the shops, malls, theatres and the staple cable TV!!...
and which all but killed the long anticipated weekend.. although most parts of the city was peaceful there was an 'anything could happen' air about, which hampered the regular functioning of the city.. and after the scenes aired on the news channels (which weremercifully spared from the entertainment ban), not many people would have wanted to open their shops for the few people who might actually dare to venture out...
two millenia after Jesus died, when his followers make up the largest religion in the world,i wonder what would happen if the same logic were to be adopted by his followers every Good Friday.. Perhaps its because of the knowledge that He would be back on a later day, and that,i guess, is the difference between a god and a demigod.
until next time, end of reel
(yup, delayed by almost a fortnight, but am almost settled, so from now i should be on normal mode)
