Bapu: Yes Bittoo, you appear to be sad and unenthusiastic today, is something bothering you?
Bittoo: Yes Bapu, I am genuinely sad as our nation lost a great political thinker, Atal Bihari Vajpayee for whom national interest was first but not the seat of power.
Bapu: Hummmmm, the entire nation is mourning his sad demise.
Bittoo: But, I saw in our city today many youth, particularly students of professional colleges going to cinema halls and nearby tourist spots to make good the holiday Bapu. What type of mourning is this Bapu?
Bapu: I don’t know Bittoo
This is a citizen-centric new column, wherein the author(Bitto) is an ordinary, politically unaffiliated common man of the city who in his/her inimitable approach takes up various issues with the Bapu’s soul! Apparently, the interaction between them portrays ironies of sorts encountered by the common man and others in the city in a lighter vein. The author’s name will not be disclosed to the readers as he/she represents the common man of the society. This column aims at creating awareness and sensitising cross sections of our city on various issues of public concern only but in a lighter vein without holding any contempt against any institution or individual.
