India’s fake stories

      Comments Off on India’s fake stories

The following two paragraphs are a repeat from another article I wrote.

Evil exists in the world, not because of evil people, but because good people do nothing about it. I am urging good people to speak up, that is all it takes.

You must have watched Tigers chasing a herd of Buffaloes – they run like crazy, ultimately the tiger will get one of them. You must have also seen four or five Buffaloes turn around and face the tiger, and the Tiger takes a back step, then the Buffaloes run towards him and the Tiger takes a hike.

Thanks to all the newspapers who have countered the fake news. It would be great if it hits Hindi and regional vernacular. I hope we share this with our friends across the board.
