Don't know what's happening to the state affairs here. It has been three years that I have not been able to spend time in Jamshedpur properly. I come as a guest and go. This time, when i came home I was shocked to see the newspaper and also the local news channel- ETV Jharkhand. There have been so many fights, processions, the so called-" danga-fasaad"in the colloquial language. It has been alomost 15 days that I am at home and in this duration there have been, ' bands', thrice. People have been charged by the police who were responsible for violating the decorum of the respective cities in the state. After the formation of Jharkhand there was a ray of hope regarding the progress of the state but now, it seems to be coming down to where it was before.
The other day I had to go to Ranchi for my JNU entrance exam. One day before I read in the newspaper that there was going to be, ' Jharkhand bandh' on 18th. How would I go for the exam?? I was so tensed. Just to avoid problems I had to start off at about 4:AM in the morning but fortunately there was nothing of that sort. I came back safely.
The next day morning when I was hearing the news I found that there was so much of commotion in Ranchi on Monday. There was firing and also many women were hurt who were involved in the procession. I didn't feel like reading the newspaper after that. Every morning I get up and see THIS............
Don't know what is going to happen??
The irony here is that, with all this happening, there are a handful from Jharkhand who have qualified in THE UPSC examination by securing good ranks this time!!!
