clash in Siliguri

Mobs in Siliguri went on rampage damaging shops and buses protesting against a remark a RJ made in New Delhi against the current Indian Idol.

Wow! A remark made by a RJ (I don't know what the remark was, but going by the way RJs speak in Mumbai, must have been some take on Gorkhas) in Delhi has potential to disrupt life and stop an ambulance carrying a patient in Siliguri.

Talk about global village.

The Indian Idol, Prashant has come out with a statement urging restraint from his fans. Hope better sense prevails.

Mercifully, none of the news portals and news papers have carried the actual remark. Looks like the media does have some good sense, after all.
