Protests are exploding all over the country -- some quiet and reflective, some scary calling for war with Pakistan. Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, and even in Cubbon Park in Bangalore. Here are some (not so good) screen shots from Indian TV. The candles and prayers are wonderful, the bloodthirstiness is scary. What I can't capture are the debates between "we want war" and "we hate war" happening at these protests.
They want action, but what?
Signs that say "there is a limit to tolerance, it's time to fight back." Others are more direct "Bomb Pakistan". "No security, no taxes." "Worthless politicians."
Meanwhile, PM Singh has been visiting Bangalore for some science and research related visits at the Indian Institute of Science and a Research Center. Of course, that meant lots of signs on the main road.
Again, how much does this all cost?
