Indians hammered

“Riots continue in Birmingham, England. 11 aggressive youths were mauling 11 timid Indians while thousands watched!!!,” read a Facebook post written by my friend Viju Jacob.
Stunned, I responded, “Oh my God.”
There were others too who were shocked and reacted instantly.
“Spot on. If it was boxing, they would have stopped the bout,” wrote PK Madhavan.
“These are the brave men who defeated the Nazis. Now they can't even defend their own houses and citizens against an angry mob. Poor Brittania,” wrote Rik Corijn.
“We have a history of being ruled,” was Ajit Kumar’s angry response.
Viju Jacob did not let the subject boil and broke his silence.
“I was talking about cricket where England is hammering the Indians,” he declared.

  13. I love that thriller style ending....but our arsonists are way ahead...its almost 20 years since I first saw the after effects of burnt shops in Mumbai....and for a protected teenager it was hard coming in terms with the mindless violence of neighbours turned foes overnight.

    I was taken aback with the last line and read the whole thing again and just smiled when the word 'perspective' hit my mind. :)

    Wish you a happy weekend.
