The need for vocational training

A West Bengal resident, who police claimed was behind the killing of three witnesses and four attempts to murder witnesses in rape cases lodged against self-styled godman Asaram and his son Narayan Sai, has been arrested by the Gujarat ATS and Ahmedabad Detection of Crime Branch in a joint operation.

Karthik alias Raju Dulalchand Haldar, resident of Ramlochanpur in South 24 Parganas, had become a ‘sadhu’ in 2000 and a follower of Asaram, police said.

ATS officers said Karthik was arrested from Sarona Bazar in Raipur, Chhattisgarh, where he had been hiding. They said Karthik hadn’t taken any weapon training, one reason why four of his targets survived.

See why vocational training is so important? There are other points here, but you know what they are so I’ll desist.

And on a personal note: The other half’s birthday today. When I asked her what she wanted, she said “Internet se azaadi, for one day — all I ever see of you is the back of your laptop and the dome of your head sticking above it. Not today.”

What to do? All together, now:

“Hum kya chaahte? Internet se Azaadi”

See you tomorrow, therefore.
