Blood Sport

THE government of the people, by the people, for the people is out with providing another relief to the suffering lot of the country by allowing Basant to be celebrated, of course as a festival. Even though the lot mostly consists of the people anxious for an old promise to be fulfilled, that of Roti, Kapra aur Makaan, and who may not be able to celebrate it as they used to in antiquity but why ‘the others’ should be deprived if opportunities for recreation? I mean, what recreation is left in this country! Basant should certainly be celebrated even though it might cost a few needless lives who may fall a victim to the sharp string, be crashed under a vehicle as a kite runner or the enthusiasts who fall off the roof. And not to forget that livelihood of several thousands depends on this yearly festival so why deprive them in a situation when shadow of hunger has engulfed what was left of humanity in the hapless country. So the nation should celebrate the festival with great fervor and it would be great if it be celebrated under the patronage of the government considering the terrorist threats. Besides, who knows if any approaching night might also draw curtains for the government so keep providing relief when the opportunity is there.

It is like trivializing the grave situation prevalent in the country. For the 'worthy' governor, Jashan-e-Baharan is more important than the Punjab Government. So cold...so cold!

We are very slow learners when it comes to nation-building and the sustainability of democracy (though it too is a joke in this country).
