MUMBAI: This is an insult to your nation. I do not mean this lovely little dream machine, but an op-ed to say that you cannot dream. It isn’t as though people were tanking up with baltis and piping it in their cars. One man with a sense of drama does not mean that the Hondas would die a slow death. The media, at least this time, sold a harmless story and did not sponge on some blood.
Water is an important symbol. In India, we have many such ‘miracles’ — water spouting from deities/shrines. People worship at water sources that are polluted. If only we had someone with a dream too, we’d save on petrol to visit these miracle sites!
