Mandal-ized!

A student at ISB got these pictures from his/her friends at AIIMS. The students at AIIMS were protesting against the proposed increase in reservation.
Seems like a pretty brutal reaction from the government towards a non-violent strike.

I feel a little cut-off from the rest of the world these days 'cause I really am finding it difficult to set aside time to read news! Not that I am studying all the time. But somehow I just don't seem to find time to catch up on news/blogs!

Disclaimer : I have no way of verifying facts/info about these events. I heard that the press was under restraints to write about this one. Decide for yourself after looking at these pictures.

Someone has started an E-Petition here. Sign it if you feel strongly about this.













p.s. Kudos to the photographer whoever he/she is. Very powerful pictures.

Wow- some pretty powerful photos. I must confess I must be even more cut off from the world than you are- Ive never heard of this issue before- but maybe thats just because I'm all the way in Australia and th news hasnt hit the headlines yet.
Anyways, Im trying to get around to as many Indian bloggers as I can, asking for their help so I'll stop there- I'm an Australian Indian doing a major work where I need heaps of surveys filled out, which is really hard for me considering I don't know many Indians living in India. So it would be really awesome if you had the time to visit my online survey and fill it out. Heres the site--

Mr. Anonymous. If you want to write about it, please go ahead and write about. Not everyone may feel as strongly about it as you do.
