“Spirit of Hyderabad” – Letter to Indian Express

via H.Balakrishnan published on August 28, 2007

Dear Sir,


Hyderabad is again in the news for all the wrong reasons!! Twin Blasts on 25 Aug.


The “USUAL HOMILIES” will pour forth from our “DHIMMI SECULAR NETAS”. The torrent has already started!! (A)- ‘Its an act of cowardice’, – Renuka Chowdry, (B)- ‘It was done to create panic’- Thingummy Doud, Former Home Minister AP, (C)- ‘Do not panic, maintain calm’ – Y “Samuel” Reddy!! Then the “CACAPHONY” will become a ‘torrent’.Then will follow the ‘usual FLYING visits’ of these ‘netas’ to get phot-ops by being at the bedside of the wounded,in hospitals.Inconvenience to all concerned is a minor matter!!


Not to be left behind,the ‘secular’ English media will burst forth into a flood of Articles highlighting the “SPIRIT OF HYDERABAD”.Some will then,in rare ‘investigative brilliance ‘ point the needle of suspicion ‘ at some ‘phantom unbearded denizens’ behind the blasts!! The T.V. Channels will go beserk,each trying to outdo the other in ‘fabricating headlines’ and ‘stories’!! How ‘sources’ say it was RDX. And then there will be a contradiction in another channel about how it was a ‘mixture of ‘RDX+something’. Not to be outdone,a third will scream how ‘the pressure cooker came to boil’!! And then will follow a ‘JUGALBANDHI SESSION ‘ against the backdrop of the ‘CHARMINAR’. A must for this show is for the prima donnas to prominently display the  ‘GREEN’ and ‘SAFFRON’ JERSEYS!! WE LIVE IN THE MAUDLIN SEASON!!


Of course,’SLEEPLESS’ Race Course Road will say how these despicable blasts will have no effect on the ‘PEACE PROCESS’.After all,there is the ‘HAVANA DECLARATION’!!And the NATIONAL (IN)SECURITY ADVISOR will return to the familiar ‘I TOLD YOU’ homily!!


And,after about ten days of this burlusque, Hyderabad will be off the radar of all concerned. It will be ‘1-2-3-‘ as usual!! No one will be apprehended. Isn’t that how the script played out after Delhi, Varanasi,Malegaon,Mumbai etc etc?


And, we lived happily thereafter,until the ‘NEXT BLAST’when the same script will be repeated once again!!
