Its simply too predictable!
A couple of months ago, I wrote this article on my blog. In that article, I casually mentioned a sequence of events that may take place. This list was built on the basis of what I keep seeing after every such incident. Two of the things I mentioned there were
- A high flying delegation of ‘modern’, ‘rational’ literary folks visit Pakistan as part of a cultural exchange program
- News channels run SMS polls on “how to improve Indo-Pak relations further”
Its amazing to see that both are already happening!!
In link 1 above, the following point I made in the old post can also be seen.
- Pak team members make ‘prepared’ speeches about great hospitality of Indians and ‘common blood’
Of course, two other things I mentioned on that list have also happened.
- India submits a list
- The list is thrown into a garbage bin by Pak
Its just too predictable! In a few months, 26/11 would be a distant memory. And our system (executive, legislative, press, media) would have played a very active role in ensuring 26/11 is forgotten. The next tragedy will then strike. And we will be back to square one.
