How bad is it?

Many private offices in Delhi are closed. I did not send my daughter to school, but am attending office.

My route to office, though had traffic during morning rush hour, but it was quite free flowing unlike the usual jams ...

Only the BJP calls for Bandhs in it's own ruled states. The hypocrites will not lower the excessively high local taxes on petroleum products, but they want the central government to keep subsidizing losses to the tune of tens of thousands of crores a year. The Indian public and media has got to be thestupidest in the world. Does no one realize the actual break up of the final retail prices of Diesel/Petrol? The height of hyprocrisy is, that the only time Diesel and Petrol were both decontrolled, BJP was the party in power at the center.

In any case, what does a Bandh accomplish other than causing severe losses to the exchequer and the country? The worst part is, that a Bandh hurts the very common man, that these political parties are championing, the most. The poor daily wage earner will not be able to feed his family because the likes of Advani & Bindra Karat see an opportunity for political gain.

Shame on one and all who support 'bandhs'.

6 AM to 6.30 PM ......... what kinda work you are into?????
I work for the IT department of an Australian Bank and one of the unlucky few who had a deliverable that had to go out today:(. My usual timings are 7AM to 4PM. 6AM to 6.30 PM is only for today because the Bandh is from 6 to 6 and my company did not want to ply any vehicles during this time.

+1 to iaudio's post,we are the most literate state and yet showcase pure,unadulterated,unabashed idiocy :mad:.i constantly wonder,how misplaced the catch phrase,.."gods own country" is.honestly,if god chose to reside here,me thinks our ever dependable citizens would have driven him out on some pretext or the other,or even protested at his very presence in the state :p!!!hey,i love my state,and my country more,..but we are slowly but surely on the path to self-annhilation.progress indeed!!!!mera bharath mahan,..tha.

@manu,ur 100% right.

cheers

Happy Birthday ANM. Wish You All the Best :).

@ Avidyarthy: Happy Anniversary, Sir :).

Coming to the topic, I wonder, why can't our people take out peaceful protests than burning tyres, cars, trains, buses, hearts and what not? They damage private vehicles and buildings, I wonder who gave the protesters the authority to do so? AAM - AADMI has to bear the burnt of price rise as well as the damages caused by these protesters. Which AAM AADMI are the parties fighting for? I won't single out any particular political party, I feel all are SAME :mad:.
