#ReclaimTuesday - The Camera Always Lies

'The names have been changed to protect the guilty'
Economically speaking we find ourselves being hurtled down the rapids without a paddle on a river of shit. Politically our leaders have their arses pointing in the raft adding to the shit splashing on the people paddling.

Afterward, rumors of more attacks caused a mass exodus of northeasterners from cities like Bangalore, Chennai and Pune, despite assurances by the authorities that the situation was under control. India says doctored images used to spur ethnic violence originated in Pakistan
