A good piece of work coming from a selfproclaimed psuedo journaliste.

I have wlays wonderred. Does fasting help a situation, except maybe turn the spotlight on the issue for a couple of days. It certainly does hurt the person who is fasting, but do the authorities really care? DId Medha Patkar's fast help resolve the sitatuion? Ammair''s presence maybe inflated the situation, but the fact remains that the displaced people will ahve nowhere to go.
