On an impulse I wrote the last piece about Sri Pawar having been slapped and kept thinking about it afterwards. I had given my own reasons for Mr Harvinder’s actions. How can I attribute reasons for the action of a person I do not know about? I had sort of justified his slapping Mr Pawar. Was I right in doing so? The thought kept bugging me. Of course, it was my view. Only few of my friends read what I write. And none of them take me seriously. So, it was OK. But still.
In the Sunday columns of The Times Of India, I read Shobha De’s ‘The slap that shook India’. Almost same as my post. I feel easy. Right or wrong, it is nice to know that there are many who feel the same.
