I love Vegas for its grandeur…!!
I have not seen, heard or read about a city more magnificent than Vegas!
…but for a loser, Vegas is the meanest place on earth.
At the end of the day, are we gainers in any way? “Yes.. Of course!!”
-- Prospective investors who went through the torture of hartals in Kerala chose to invest elsewhere!
-- A single day's closure costs the state an astounding 700 crore Rupees.
-- Laborers are forced to sacrifice one day’s income for no reason, unlike government servants who enjoy the benefit of “eligible leaves”.
-- Common man, ‘once again’ has become an idiot!
The real recipients, if any, are the state-run liquor shops and the meat stalls which observe thunderous trade on pre-hartal days.
From January 2008 to June 2008, a total of 53 hartals were observed; ie out of 152 working days! Keralites have even witnessed total shut down on “Vishu” (astronomical New Year’s Day) and even on January 1st! Ah.. What a way to begin a year!
…and we all grin and bear it; we still continue to do so!
