At the same time today's newspaper carries another report that there is a person who welcomed the diesel price hike. It is nobody other than the Vice Chairman of Planning Commission, Montek Singh Aluvaliah, who said the other day that all paddy fields in Kerala should be converted into other uses like industrial and residential purposes. We, the Kerala people though depend on rice need not produce it here !

Yet another hartal, this time on the price hike on diesel. Government have come up with a legal notice to take action against any violent protests on this day. Good, atleast the public and private properties stay safe!
Whenever there is a strike or hartal the first thing that bothers me are the vandalistic of public and private properties by the enraged mobs. They simply go around with metal rods and petrol bottles to set on fire or to smash any vehicle or shops that set out.
