Another factor is that if we open the news papers and the TV news channels we find only a Karkadakam like effect on the good things of life. Most of the news are dark, ugly and revolting. Whether it s Governmental(whichever party that may happen to be in power), opposition activity, the civil liberty activists and worst of all the media, especially the visual media wants people to know only what they feel the people should know. All the negative aspects and values are shown heroically.
Of course there also silver linings here and there and we can hope that the situation will change for the better. Let us hope that just as a the Karkadakam goes and the onam comes, the bad patch in the country also goes and good things come soon.
