The Prime Minister speaks -

"I am writing to you to express my profound sense of sadness at the death of your husband Shri Sumit Verma yesterday"
- Dr. Manmohan Singh, 4th of October 2009.

In a beautiful case of 'I'm here so your ass ain't worth shit', Dr. Manmohan Singh's security (which includes the local police bodies) did not permit a 32 year old patient with kidney complications to enter the emergency ward of Chandigarh's Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research Hospital resulting in the patients death. For over 2 hours the security forces kept on diverting the vehicle carrying Mr. Verma. He finally did reach the hospital but along with some fuel he lost his life as well. But hey, the PM wrote to the guy's wife man. I mean, look at it positively, she can go for local kitty parties and brag about getting a letter from the big man. Now if thats not enough man .....

We the people. Yes. That's us. The proud, the patriotic, the valiant - in eternal support of our government, our flag, our Gandhi. We cry in awe when we see our army march by flaunting weapons of mass destruction because it is made for peace, purchased and built using currency that boasts the bust of our father (God, he was good. Over a billion eh!). That is also why we have executions and that is why our president takes on an oath of silence when it comes to pardoning the condemned. In the name of peace we have one of the most ruthless, oppressive and corrupt policing body. In the name of peace Godse was executed for killing a person who believed in non-violence.

But what to do no? It is our culture. Our Indian culture (yes, we love it, lap that shit up like underfed runts). "Its the best bro its the best bro is the best."
