Angry, angrier, angriest

The devastation wrought on this city by yesterday’s rain has so many angles: disrupted industrial production, massive traffic jams, criminal neglect, electrocutions, looting, etc.

But the most galling? From today’s Daily Times:

‘The entire city was engulfed in a traffic jam. According to one commuter, he was stuck at Hotel Metropole for four hours. The road in front of CM House, towards PIDC, was closed from one lane for VIP movement despite the fact that the entire area was backed up with a traffic jam‘.

    Only 25 people were killed I guess out of 15 millions. Round Off error.

    According to the LAW of this land, only VIP’s are humans and be treated a such. Awaam should be treated as animals. So much for CDGK.

    What we cannot do:

    Anything. Yes we just cannot do anything about that incident and all such incidents happening unless Mushy gets a Holy warning from Lord, he being the champion of culprits in VVIP cases. Be patient because unfortunately we live in a tyrant society with many firoon’s among us and most of them of these VIP/VVIP’s.

    What we can do:
    Start looking into our own collar. We at our homes, offices & other places need to treat all people who are less fortunate than us due to any with humbleness. The VIP mentality comes right from here. Right from where you and I live. We need to be humble with people whom I mentioned above for example our servants at home, peons, juniors & all people who due to luck/mistake or any other reasons are lesser than us in capacities/status/position/name/fame etc because one day one of us will be a high rank official or VIP. If we kick the ass of that VIP culture now. We will do it then. Else we better not preach what we cannot practice. VIP mentality doesn’t come through holy message. It comes from inside and develops throughout life. There are social pressures but it’s the test of a personality to pass through it. Great people in history are all known to be humble.

    anyone who climbs the ladder of success develops these tendencies, even though they would shout out against when they were at the lower rungs.
