Manmohan Singh is articulate, intelligent, smart and a great economist

BUT sadly eventhough he is the PM of India, Sikhs still have received no justice for the genocide of 1984.

What use are the above qualities when those qualities are not put into use, so atleast the minorities of India feel there is some justice in India.

Surely being an economist, he should know that the Economy & Human Rights of a country go hand in hand.

Anyway bhaji... nice blog, u truely lead a Gursikhi Jeevan with great sadh sangat
