The anger and frustration of the people is justified. We have to accept their anger. We should read the public mood and introspect. It is time for us to be calm and quite. It worries me that the image of politics has deteriorated to such depths.
We have to realise that people expect a lot from us and we are failing in meeting these expectations. This is a unique feature of our country that here people want politicians to be part of even their family events from celebrations of birth in the family to funerals.
We need to reflect as to why Mumbai attacks have generated such reaction amongst people.
