Hi C'da: Please excuse my interruption.
>You and others from the ranks of the GOOD folks have vehemently opposed 'talks'.
That is wrong. A "real" peace talk is way overdue - for the sake of the ordinary citizens of Assam. IMO, nobody should or have opposed that.
But it should be from a sincere heart that has worries for the Assamese - for Assam's development - for the safety of the lives of the ordinary Assamese - and not put some pre-conditions beforehand so it will look like ready to have the talk PROVIDED, "you agree to do what I want you to do". Then bring up the topic - see the possibilities...
Pretension will only bring more miseries to the people of Assam - and who would (rather should) care for that more? The Assamese - be it ULFA or SULFA or non-ULFA or non-SULFA - just Assamese, isn't it?
And I think these bomblasts are not ALL done by the ULFA, but outside (or inside) sources are taking advantage of the situation - just to create animosity amongst all groups including the government. So shouldn't ULFA walk thier talk of taking care of the people of Assam and put more emphasis on coming to the mainstream thru talks or whatever and "save" Assam and the Assamese from this vulnerable situation??
If we (all people, that is, ULFA, SULFA, NON-ULFA?SULFA, Government bodies - all) LEAVE political agendas/spin/cheap fame/'bhem' and motives like making EASY MONEY, hope to become the "Roja" above the innocent civilians of Assam, then won't we want just that - PEACE and SAFETY for the people of Assam first?

You are right.
In fact, lets pick this up only when there is a "fake encounter" and the the army has killed an innocent ulfa cadre! :)
**** You are evading the point again Ram
It is not about these incidences that will continue to occur. The bad guys will keep doing it. And more bad guys won't join you to shed those tears of sympathy or join the chorus of abuse.
Like you explained yourself, no-one can prevent these, not even the might of the Indian Army.
So WHAT would the GOOD folks do? What SHOULD they do?
You and others from the ranks of the GOOD folks have vehemently opposed 'talks'.
You have cried out for surrender of the BAD guys.
You all have put out incisive arguments and insights why Assam must remain India's dependency.
But none of them are working.
So what is the answer?

*** Last things first: Let us put an end to the debate here. You know, like so many others in this forum do, that these are BAD folks! There is no need to argue about what you know to be the unimpeachable truth. Eketa kothake pegheniai thaaki ekw laabh nai, buisa ( repeating oneself like a broken record does not accomplish anything).
>>They will Kill - even small babies if necessary, if the GOI won't listen and sit with them for talks - is >>that correct?
*** Same story again.
There is no point in attempting to make the bad folks to admit they are BAD or attempt to have them do the right things! They won't do that. It will be mindless to expect to make silk purses out of sows' ears.
That leaves the GOOD folks; like yourself, other assamnetters who share your values, GoI and GoA to lead the way.
Now then, what would the GOOD folks do, because the BAD ones couldn't be counted on to the right things?
Keep on doing the same thing, knowing that the BAD guys will keep doing the same thing too?
What will you do when your tear-ducts run dry, with nothing left to shed in lieu of a solution?

Yeah, right! :)
>Somebody has to hold the torch and lead the way. You are doing >your share
No one need to lead the way - the ULFA's attrocities are blazing thru fine for all the see.
(BTW: the death tolls gone up - update: Six people, including a one-and-half-year-old baby, were killed and 20 others injured ).

So, these deaths and killings are the responsibility of India - because blood-thirsty ULFA wants to force their dikat on the rest of the population?
They will Kill - even small babies if necessary, if the GOI won't listen and sit with them for talks - is that correct?
Its good going.
I wonder how PCG, PCPIA and HR groups and all those famous people will spin this? They all come up front & center with righteous indignation, even if one single gun-weilding ulfa cadre is killed.

Yes indeed. You are also right about demanding to know 'Talks on what?'. You are not alone, not in this net, not in the company of the fearless watchdogs of democracy in Assam or India.
Anyone with half a working brain ought to know, it is far better to keep trying. Wasn't it the fearless Sir Robert the Bruce who, while hiding in the cave got the epiphany from the spider who kept falling off its net, but finally succeeded in setting it up, that he realized that he had keep trying until he succeeded?
Take heart Ram. India can hang in there for ever. So what if many more lives are lost? They are cheap. And the righteous like yourselves will always be there to salve the loss with streaming e-tears on the internet.
Acerbically as always.

Thanks Babul, and here are some more details.
The ULFA's bravery knows no bounds. This time again, they have managed to kill two "very dangerous" children and two dangerous pedestrians.
And yet, some of us expect that the GOI hold talks with these murderers? Talks on what? If NOT, the ULFA will kill more innocent people & children?
These sympathizers ought to gives us some really good reasons why killing children or these pedestrians is somehow justified?
