The day after tomorrow
The transformation from rioting rampages to just another day in the lives of Bangalore’s software professionals is probably no less inexplicable as was the break out of mob violence yesterday. The city residents woke up on this Saturday as if from a bad dream with no more than vague recollections of what took place less than 12 hours ago. BMTC buses and autos are back on the streets and so is every single working citizen. The happening of yesterday seems to have left no more of an impression than any other action flicks on the big screen. It hardly seems any administrative authority is going to lose their hair over this matter, at least not until there is a sure possibility of yet another such incident.
Is Bangalore going to move on like nothing ever happened? Has the price of six innocent lives come down so far down the ladder of Indian economy? Or have the keyboard bashing software professionals of this city been numbed solely into the world of the Internet where physical emotions and losses no longer hold any real worth?
May the following videos (Source: CNN IBN Live @ http://www.ibnlive.com/) stay as subtle reminders of something that should neither be forgotten nor forgiven.
