I am curious...

...about what our President, Mrs. Pratibha Patil has to say about the attack on Bombay? Have not read about ANYTHING from her. If anyone has seen something, please do point me to it.

...about why there has been absolutely NO mention of ex-PM V. P. Singh's passing away? Was not (and am still not) interested so much in politics when he was PM, so am curious about why no one remembers him at all?

really VP Singh died? when?
As for our President - well she was in Indonesia for something and had not returned till 2 days after the incident for sure...it just goes on to say what her position in the country is - no one cares coz she is just one of the pawns placed by the politicians...so unlike Kalam...

Deeply, he died on Nov 27..while the attacks were still going on. I found out through another blog, not through any newspaper/media website!

waise bhi India mein president ko koi nahin poochta, its like she does not even exist...

c'est la vie said...

actually, in Indian democracy, President is the head of all the three forces, viz. army, navy and airforce. but in realty have almost no role in the frontier. it's really sad. they are like puppets or more exactly statues. attending shows and seminars and hardly any functional roles.

cest, yeah, that was exactly my point...atleast now she should have said something...condolences if nothing else!

Just call me 'A' said...

yeah i heard about VP singh's death. Ms Patil, is just a figurine.....all dressed up but no where to go. As a president she could have come live on television to address the nation....but i guess this is not important enough in their books. sad sad state.

hi, i came over from Renu's

there WAS a mention. the smallest, you can imagine. they had to declare the day a holiday, so they did.
all the attention was focussed on the mumbai blasts.

Actually I heard someone mention that she was in Indonesia and had to return earlier than expected and that was 2 days AFTER the attacks. I sometimes wonder, WHAT THE HELL is the role of Presidents in India :(

And yeah Mr. VP Singh dies.. too bad it was in the middle of the attacks :(
