The Morning Deluge!
It was an unprecedented rally today. 30,000, 40,000, 50,000 – how much was the participation? How to count when you are in the midst of a sea!
It was all-out a students’ carnival – led by the `students.
When did Kolkata last observe such a colossal gathering by the students only? I asked many a person – nobody could really answer!
On 14 November 2007 Kolkata did see a mammoth rally against the brutal killing of peasants in Nandigram by the then government but that was a citizens’ rally. Today the students marched through the streets by their own power and strength.
The message was clear – brute force of the state can’t suppress your voice and dignity.
Out of all, as a participant in this rally I firmly believe, the central point of this enormous movement – Justice for the molested girl in JU - would affirm.
