When a nation is in the midst of uncertainty, corruption and pillage of public properties skyrocket.

Things remained closed for seven days and we did not do much. Rather, we took these things as a part of life. It was difficult for me, maybe because I have grown used to the way of life in the United States over the last 10 years.

We can’t think of a single political entity in a western country where they would call for a nation-wide “Bandh” and survive politically after that!
