Have Kerala become a state of hartals? or Is Kerala becoming a state of hartals?
Hartals have become a part of Kerala as such. Its been appalling how the people take it as an extra holiday on the calendar. Hartals and bandhs have become a common strategy of politicians to trigger in disputes among parties and then to debate on the actions of the opponent party. It is just a party game that now they play when they get bored. I have often heard my college-mates say that "its been boring outside so we decided to attend this hour of lecture" and with same boredom chant "we have nothing to do outside the classroom, if there was a strike at least we could have joined them shouting something". Strikes have just got into the thrillers list of Kerala, just like the gundas and drug trafficking,speeding and so much more i don't know where to begin and end the list. But hopefully i would say that hartals are mere time pass for young politicians or guys who seems to work for parties but are simply spending up their time and enjoying the thrilling experience of vandalizing the cars and shops or throwing in explosives and arousing terror just like how their favorite villains or heroes do in cinemas.
