The perils of adventures

One should not be adventurous....
I think we need to take greater care.

These were the words of Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dixit, on the death of television journalist Soumya Vishwanathan. While she also did express sorrow, instead of using this as an opportunity to crack down on the pathetic law and order situation in the Capital, she merely admitted that Delhi was indeed an unsafe city.

Which again reminds me of the maxim I recently came across -

Governments are funny things.
They're designed by geniuses to be run by fools.

India embodies this better than any other nation I can think of.
