Effed up Gujarat

This, should be the last word on the Gujarat riots. Irrespective of what you may say, "It was necessary", "This nation will be ruled by Muslims" yada-yada, all that I have to say is, "No Sir, siege mentality is not the way to run a country. Remove hatred or else be consumed by its flames."

As Basavanna, the great Veerashaiva philosopher said,

"Maneyolagana Kicchu Maneya Suttitallade, neremaneya sudadu Koodalasangamadeva"

Meaning: The fire within one's house will burn only his/her house and not the neighbour's, hear this, O Lord of Koodalasangama.
