Are riots justified??

I have read about the recent riots (in maharashtra) which prompted me to ask this question - Are riots really justified? ...............
Humanity can be devastating in a number of ways and one of the cruelest forms are riots.......
Do you believe that just by damaging property or by killing people the problems are going to be solved? My answer is NO....... The recent riots are about a defacing of a statue of a prominent leader of the India where many of his supporters got together to protest . Its sometimes sad that these things do happen. Can't we solve this in a more decent fashion . Can't we just only give punishment to the person who is involved in this.
The truth is we lack proper law and order. Do these things happen in US and the UK? The reason is they have a stable law and order system, which we seriously lack.
A better example is the Godhra case, the Muslims burnt a train because of some issue (frankly i don't know the entire case) and the riots between HIndu and Muslims in Gujarat started.... Seriously cant we just give punishment to whoever is responsible for the crime.
Trust me guys i am sure u must've seen the pictures of the godhra case and its gruesome. I knew Humanity has its dark side , but that was just awful ........
So until and unless we have a strong law for riots , human emotions will not be controlled and these kind of situations will always take place...........

PS : I have taken the most liberal side in this post , those who have been hurt by this post please forgive me and i may have made some grammatical mistakes , sorry for my English :D.......

Return of the prince.........

This post is about a long awaited return of one of the greatest batsmen and captain India has ever seen........ Yes its the prince of Kolkata .... Sourav Ganguly....... And my heartiest congratulations to him for doing that......
Its been almost one year since he was dropped from the team , now he has been brought back to shoulder a struggling India team..... yes the latest 20-20 win would have boosted morale of the team , but there is no denying the series of failures in the challenger trophy and in South Africa......
It was a similar situation where Nawab of pataudi was dropped from the team and was brought back to shoulder a struggling indian side back then...Now its dada's turn .... If he is capable of bringing the team back to their feet then he will surely be go down in history books with glory and pride.........
I sometimes wonder why he the team management didn't consider him for this long .... was it because of some childish issue with the coach...... come on Mr. Chappel get over with it... finally its a win that matters and he is not going to make India win by fighting over some petty issue...........
Rahul Dravid is the current captain and i am a great fan of his.... but personally i like Dravid as more of a player than a captain .... The main strength of Ganguly is he can keep team together even in crisis..... This is what Rahul Dravid lacks.......
I believe he (Ganguly) paved the way of new and better Indian team during his captaincy days... which is now slowly degrading in his absence.......
His statistics will give you strong message that whatever has happened to him is purely injustice - 22 hundred close to 15000 ODI runs is no kiddish thing ..... So its great to have him back.......
But will he show the India team the right way...... Will he be able to make India see the dawn of a win again..... that only time will tell ....... Meanwhile all we can do is just have hope in the team and cheer for India.......


Hold on to your horses folks.. Its time for the Return of the prince ............
