Why calamities shouldn't happen in Chennai?

Ah, you would have thought I was one of those philanthropist thinking high for the people. Sorry to burst your bubble. This is out of frustration that I wanted to vent my feeling. I mean for a few days now "Chennai is reeling under Petrol crisis". Now this was absolutely worsened by the panic stricken men who kept filling their Cars, Bikes, Barrels, Wife's mouth etc etc with petrol where ever they could lay hands on.



So technically the problem as they say was that "Diesel" read NOT PETROL which was scarce. Now what the people have done is to ensure Petrol is a rare commodity too because of their preposterous and overzealous reaction. I mean, I sure think they would have started drinking petrol thinking they could use it some other time. Mabbe these petrol guzzlers should not fart too while someone lights their match or whatever, for their back side would be on fire and the ONGC is going to think, they found a new "gas" reserve !


Now what has happened because of this reaction is that they have etched their name as 'bad' people in tough times. I mean I saw people coming to petrol stations with Barrels man. And on the same note, we work in a place so darn close to the Beach and on Friday there was a prediction of Earthquake resulting in Tsunami (whatever) and you should see the way people crawled down the 13 floors. I mean you can listen to women talk about their in-laws, food plans for the evening and laughing around :-)... So I don't understand how the system works in this part of the world. People show urgency and clamor to things which could be better handled if they maintained composure and show utter disregard to things where one should be a bit diligent.

Anyway, there should be no calamities here for it would be one jokers paradise to see them all do things and perish. Amen!
