Damned Politics

The entire state was in statis yesterday due to the idiots who are associated with political parties. The BJP lead 12 hour (6 am to 6 pm) hartal meant almost 95% of shops, businesses & hotels stayed closed in fear of being attacked by the goons of the party for not closing their shutters for the day. The buses & most private vehicles stayed off the roads until 6:30 pm or so but bikes and three wheeler taxos are allowed without a problem. The hartal was to protest against the hiking of petrol & deisel rates by our government - so their theory is to inconvinience people after they have just been hit by yet another hike in prices???!!!! Someone tell me the fucking logic behind it!

Now, ofcourse we have to get to work on time despite no means of public transport. Finding no solution, I had to hire an auto and pay "mucho dinero" just to get to the office! Can't say that I was pleased about that at all. Going home was easy since we are being dropped home as work ends at 11pm. Anyway, the World Cup starts tonight. For the nest 30 days, the world is a football.
