Riots!

Riots in Pune today. More Indian madness; someone burnt a statue of Ambedkar, a guy who worked for the dalits (untouchables, downtroddens) in the city of Kanpur, and today in parts of Pune there was curfew. I went with my cousins and uncle to Deccan, and most of the shops were closed. My family had a lucky escape. They were sitting in a restaurant, and mom was outside with the baby, when the owners got everyone in and closed the shutters and turned off the lights. A little later people were throwing stones at the closed shutters. Luckily it got over quickly and they drove home asap. Three people are dead and the streets are not safe anymore. Brilliant...
