Voices loud on social media

The voices were loud, almost deafening, on social media sites.
Facebook and Twitter had messages that expressed the anger and anguish, and demanded change.
"It is not failure of her organs but of the system" was tweeted and re-tweeted by many, who also called for more sensitivity towards crimes against women.
Many slammed Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, who went to Jantar Mantar to participate in the condolence meet, and the government for turning India Gate area into a fortress — once again.
Users also spoke up against the heavy security blanket. "28 company CRPF,11 company RAF,6 company CISF + entire Delhi Police.10 metro stations closed,road blocks..Is the UPA govt preparing 4 a war?," a tweeter posted.
A protest group on twitter #delhiprotests asked people to assemble at Jantar Mantar on December 31.
Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar joined in with tweets requesting all to maintain peace and calm.
- Across the aisle: In search of a Pakistan policy
- Fifth column: War, not terrorism
- Out of my mind: The Chinese way
- Inside track: Keeping him away
- In both India and Pakistan, war and peace are used to make political gains
- PM Modi’s strategy of escalation vis a vis Pak seems like a gamble, but not without calculation.
