Another beautiful day. Another band call. This time in protest against the delay in setting up the Cauvery Management Board. A just cause as any and worthy of support by every citizen and resident of this beautiful state.
However none of the well read and educated worldly wise men and women are able to tell me how a strike supported by all opposition parties and ruling party can help further the cause or put pressure on the central government in far away Delhi. A nice paid holiday for all residents of Tamil Nadu is always welcome. The niggling thought comes up , if the Central Government has to take notice why not protest in Delhi . Shouldn’t our elected representatives be doing their job instead of stopping the Tamil Nadu citizens from doing theirs.
