Well i didn't know what *exactly* to title this post so left it at that.
Anyway there are a few distrubing things which have been noticed. Notably, two bright minds from the factories, IIM and IIT have been murdered while doing their duty. It is appalling enough that the IIM graduate's murder has not had enough coverage, except of course The Indian Express.
However the murder raises a few questions. Firstly, isn't there any room for honesty and integrity ? The students of IIM and IIT are now rightly so, questioning all the nay sayers who were calling them as brain drain and tax drain.
However my poser to the students is simply this. We did see a thousand more deaths of a thousand more bright minds in order to stand where we are. Independent and free and most importantly, the right to ask questions and the right to fight for it. Instead of making an issue out of this and being disillusioned about the whole incident, i would prefer to take it as an example that, hey here is someone who was brave enough to take on the whole mafia. He paid an extreme price for it with his life, but should'nt it be a positive inspiration instead of negative one ?
So i urge my countrymen to take this as a positive inspiration and try to work towards that, instead of asking questions like "What safety do i have if i am in India?" we better ask questions like "How best can i take inspiration from him and try to make this a better place if not for me, atleast for my next generations".
May the deaths of those two bright minds not go in vain

    right shyam, but at the same time these are the kind of incidents that shld be made aware amongst the society so all the babus and netas would have second thoughts on getting into corruptive practices...
