Raj Thackeray was arrested today and there was an impromptu bandh, and the routine violent protests, as many parts of the city were forcibly shut and a bandh enforced.
Indians love opulence – be it in marriages , in religious festivals or be it in protests, we love to break rules, cut corners, to make noise , blast something, burn something just to be heard or to make our presence felt. And lest i forget Indians are a very repetitive bunch of people….
Sometimes i wonder how Gandhiji managed to hold peaceful protests?
One of the fundamental Principal of Insurance says “causa proxima non remota spectatur”
The rule of causa proxima means that the cause of the loss must be proximate or immediate and not remote. If the proximate cause of the loss is a peril insured against, the insured can recover. When a loss has been brought about by two or more causes, the question arises as to which is the causa proxima, although the result could not have happened without the remote cause. But if the loss is brought about by any cause attributable to the misconduct of the insured, the insurer is not liable.
Well looks like it is followed not only in insurance claim but also in real life politics and justice.
Lets see the causa proxima is MNS violence (a Raj T party)
Not the first time this has happened. It happened before in Nashik read
and more violently so in Assam, India read
the remota spectatur is Laloo and Mulayams wilful mismanagement of their states to keep them backward , populous, poor, desperate and uneducated so that they keep their flock intact.
Result Raj is Gagged and arrested (and kept in Mumbai, well this is political too cause the NCP which manages the home portfolio is playing him against the Sena) but laloo is free to babble and babble more . (not the first time this happened)
Bihar has celebrations on his arrest and what are celebrations without some more violence
and then again didn’t this happen before ?
Didn’t i say we Indians are so repetitive ?
Why does north based tv media chase trps and the causa proxima instead of looking at the root cause of why people from UP Bihar are so detested? I am not defending Raj here, but just making an observation.Why do people look down upon upwala or bihari and call those states bimaru ?
there is a wiki on this topic too Discrimination faced by the Bihari community in India
Why does press publish crap while people discuss substance
read Prerna’s blog : She has a very good post on this violence and its remote causes.
also this comment on rediff news
Lalu is always ready to blame everybody and got so many joker statements. But remember, he is still an accused in Rs 1200 croroe fodder scam and its because of his cabinet ranak and closeness to Cong that case is put in the cold storage.
If Raj is doing all these non sese, Lalu did the same to Bihar for 5 years .. that was Jungle Raj – remember during his daughter’s marriage, how his party looted Patna for vehicles
