Every minute counts...
"I am confident that this country can take on terrorism. Defeating it is no problem. If we empower those people in villages, we can sit back, relax and we will destroy terrorism in 15 minutes"
15 freaking minutes? Pardon the slur but WTF/Really/Excuse me ???
Thinking over and over again on what he said, following is what comes to mind. He perhaps meant to say take in to account our population of 1.13 billion of which about 70 % lives in villages. That is almost 800 million Indians. Now multiply 800 million by 15 minutes and you have 12,000,000,000 (12 Billion) minutes, that is 200,000,000 (200 Million) man hours. We can further find out how many days that means but let's take a break here. So far so good but now we have a problem. Is prince expecting the rural aam admy (who is very hard pressed between inflation and unemployment) to spare his time fighting terrorism instead of earning bread-butter for his/her family? Is GOI going to provide incentives to villagers fighting against terrorism? And most importantly,its the major metropolis of the nation that faces terrorism challenge at large. Why would rural citizens be bothered about problem that does not concern them? Did prince charming meant to say because GOI does not have enough internal security forces(CPRF and others) to handle 200 million man hours of work load, it plans to mass migrate villagers to cities and employ them as guards? Does that sound viable solution? Cities are already unable to support existing population. Is he suggesting more influx?
Following are the links to the only three news papers which carried this news back in 2009. We all have heard racial profiling, now check out news profiling !
And some of the blogs that also carried this.
Whatever his logic was, its beyond comprehension of the writer. Perhaps its about time to stop paying attention to what the prince blabs every now and then. Painful to believe masses of India sees this person as future PM ! Jay ho India !
