Mob madness

One man dies. Instead of mourning for his death, the mob causes the death of six more people apart from burning buses,vehicles and bringing India's tech capital to a standstill. The riots have caused $160m loss to the IT industry. This is not the first time we are doing this madness ( Remember the Indira Gandhi assasination, MGR's death,NTR's death and so on......) and am sure it won't be the last time either.

And the joke is we call mankind a "rational animal" . It only reminds me of the Oscar Wilde quote, " Man is a rational animal who always loses his temper when he is called upon to act in accordance with the dictates of reason" .
