Wow. This really has given me hope, that our country will change for the better.

But can we really expect the politicians to change their habits, since all of them are cheats and out there to make a quick buck.

Just keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that this spirit of mumbai doesn't die!

whats the point with all this??
as if things will change!!

things will change ONLY AND ONLY IF we take a bold step and vote these idiot politicians out!!

this peace march just showed the peoples attitude only. the politicians will be having a meeting in suites and making jokes of the people who went for this march!!

and yeah one more thing Leo..whatever those guys just sprung back up!! and beer is also served. see people gathered and they made a quick buck.

the things are back to normal for them. but what about those families who lost their dear ones!!

what an attitude. nice going!

wake up?? in the coming elections we should choke the politicians!! vote for a good guy not a party candidate at all.

seen the movie Yuva?
only this can save us.

but who will do that. its impossible.

so i dont vote.

its better not to vote than voting for two guys.

first one is the current canditate promising a better tomorow. yeah we have heard that.

second fellow is also prommising a better tomorow but never was able to do so in his previous election wins!

so thats it. nothing to do.

GOD SAVE INDIA

Hold on, what spirit is there? To carry on with life? As if we mortals have any options?

Its the same nationwide, any city that's hit by attacks. Its just massive public outpouring but how does some slogans change the future? Don't get me wrong, but I don't see it translating into a better safer future.

I think the peace march has bought a refreshing change amongst ourselves as people.
1. We now realize that peaceful demonstrations are possible and how any demonstration that is led by a political cause always results in violence and disruption.
2. More people will be motivated to go and join these demonstrations and atleast send a message. I hope these activities serve as a reference point to the future.

Thanks to everyone who participated. You have all sent a strong message.
