The bitter

Filed under: India,Rant — Randomizer @ 2:18 am

I watched the movie Parzania last night … for those of you who haven’t watched it, it’s a very powerful, emotional movie about an incident we have all conveniently put past us but which continues to haunt the lives of thousands of our fellow citizens every day – the carnage in Gujarat that occurred a little over 5 years ago. The direction and acting is superb, and you find yourself lost in the tragedy of the movie. Reading more about it and the role that the government and the police played takes away all or most of the pride with which we hold our country dear. Arundathi Roy writes an essay about this carnage, which makes for a very intense read.

Well, I guess after the last couple of ‘sweet’ posts about India, the bitter was just waiting to be tasted. I sure did get a very big helping of that from Parzania.
