Abhijit Mukherjee's 2 Minutes Of Fame

There are a number of people, especially those who are elected by public (mango men) to public offices, competing with each other in putting foot in their mouths.

Not sure why our President (of India)'s son had to make a comment when the entire nation was upset with the New Delhi gang rape of a medical student. Perhaps Abhijit Mukherjee wanted to get into the public space by hook or crook with insane and irrelevant comments while the tempers were flying high? With his 'dented and painted, two minutes of fame' comments, Abhijit Mukherjee got his two minutes of infamy (fame) while his foot was going right into his mouth.

Earlier it was from another foot-in-the-mouth specialist Botsa Satyanarayana, the Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee Chief, who made unwanted remarks - that 'just because India achieved freedom at midnight does not mean that women can venture out after dark...' Seriously, why?!

Now with the sad demise of the victim, all of us need to get together to ensure that we provide a safe and secure place for women of all ages to move around in a country known for its rich cultural heritage.


  1. People who are making these types of comments(dented/painted) are equally culpable.

  2. The mindset behind such comments--is it merely a craving for fame or the sign of a deeper malady?
