While this declaration of bravado is romantic in the eyes of the fawning few, there is in truth nothing but hot air to back these words. If tomorrow, an innocent student is caught in a riot, will she remember the dear man's advice to live the Christian ethic- if you get slapped on one cheek, turn the other towards the offender!? (only wait, you'll probably get stoned to death).
College policy aside...I really wonder whether there shall be blood shed on the streets of Delhi (or Ayodhya for that matter) tomorrow. Are we being cynical or realistic in this expectation of violent outbursts? Furthermore, will expectation perhaps itself fuel undesirable outcomes?
Cliche though the next line will be- the only thing we can do is wait. Tomorrow will answer my question.
