RIP: M.R. Kutty

M.R. Kutty was killed by Taliban in Afghanistan. Behind all the bickering on whether Pakistan was or wasn’t behind the attacks, an essential question still remains unanswered. What forces the Kuttys of the world to leave behind their families in search of livelihood to all these dangerous places? The Prime Minister has announced an aid of few lakh rupees for the surviving family and free education for the kids but that will not bring the husband and father back.

Oh! and where is Arundhati Roy when we need her? Wasn’t she on the forefront denouncing the US when it decided to take out the Taliban? Maybe she should go to Afghanistan and try doing the same there – after all she is the citizen of the world, isn’t she?
