Tragedy and disasters across the earth. Quakes, cyclones, floods, bombs. Nature is flaying us and the terrorists, quite naturally, have chosen to kick us when we're down.
And then a small news report:
HKL Bhagat, 83, former Union Minister and a strongman of the Delhi Congress in the late eighties, died at Apollo Hospital on Saturday after prolonged illness. He was suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
This man who egged on crazed murderers to murder many more. Do you think he forgot all about it - the screams of tortured men, the stench of burning flesh? Am I supposed to feel sorry for him now?
