Yesterday like me millions of people would have seen on our TV, a cake cutting ceremony of a great leader’s birthday by its party workers. there were disgusting scenes of fighting, breaking tables, abusing and what not for a ‘piece of cake.’ Cake cutting is a very sophisticated ceremony where lot of protocol and etiquettes are involved. seeing those scenes one feels as if some barbarians have suddenly discovered a cake. I would appeal to all political parties to postpone the cake cutting ceremony till their workers learn some discipline and manners. I would also appeal to the TV managements’ not to show such disgraceful events. After all what is the news element in the event, except to bring a bad name to the people of this country. Mind you our TV channels are watched the world over.
