A thought

I have been following the news of the BP oil spill for quite some time now. I have been reading how Obama wanted to “kick ass”, a most appropriate American term which suits the charisma of American leaders the most powerful of all men currently alive. On a side note, I wonder what will the Indian reaction if the Prime Minister or perhaps some other personality of power utter words like “pichwada phodna” while referring to odious personalities. Coming back to the main point, I have been noticing how the American outrage mounts over the callous attitude of the BP chief. The total number of persons killed in the BP debacle is 11 workers. The damage due to the leaked oil spill is terrible. Americans are terribly unhappy with the way BP is handling the show and the President has issued a number of stern warnings.

In the month of June, the verdict for the Bhopal Gas leak case was delivered. I have not the mind to put a link for it here. It is enraging, shows our lack of humanity, self-respect, degrading and so on. Clearly, this shows the “value” for an American and Indian life, both from Indians and Americans.
