Some people are actually thinking of banning Orkut, because some hooligans
didn't like the existence of Orkut communities that "hate" Shivaji.
I can't decide which one of the following is true:
- The Mumbai Police doesn't know a computer from a TV and a website from a pamphlet.
- Mumbai Police is too ineffective to actually police the hooligans and
would rather settle the fight by shutting down the other side-- people who are peacefully expressing their opinion
- Babudom really thinks it knows best for everybody and has adjudged that banning Orkut is in the society's best interests
I sincerely hope it's (1) or (2), and not (3). In India's ruling class, I'll take incompetence over hubris any day.
