Shobhaa De speaks for all of us

For once, I agree wholeheartedly with the outspoken Shobhaa De. Her comments on NDTV tonight were spot on – an angry reflection of what all of us are feeling.

I left this comment on her blog:


Thank you for the statement you made tonight on NDTV. You echoed what so many of us feel – enough is enough. We’re sick of dealing with inept politicians who show up only after the damage is done. Mumbai’s ‘resilience’ (for want of a better word) is nothing but a fierce sense of denial, our belief that surely, someday, things will get better.

They’re not going to. Time we realised that and did something about it.

  1. Where can I find Shobhaa’s comments? I tried looking on the NDTV site, but the video doesn’t seem to have been uploaded there.

  2. I haven’t found a link to the video yet. But saw her live on NDTV, and she really lashed out…”Being Resilient” is just another excuse as rightly quoted by Shobha.

  3. she did didnt she! it was very inspirational

  4. Thanks for the link.

  5. We agree with Shobha De, she really spoke our feelings…what we are feeling for the innocent people, efficient officers killed…we are so helpless..please remove the personal security of our politicians & give it to the cities…We feel so UNSAFE in our own country.
