    Rajkumar's death

    Kannada superstar and thespian Rajkumar passed away a few hours ago in Bangalore due to a cardiac arrest. Read more at Google News and Yahoo! News.

    Offices, shops and commercial establishments all over Bangalore (and indeed Karnataka) will have come to a halt by now because their managements are ensuring the safety of employees by dropping them off at their homes since there is trouble on the streets. There've already been incidents of stone throwing, stopping vehicles, burning tyres etc. in various parts of Bangalore, especially in/around where he lived - areas like Malleswaram and Sadashivnagar. I'm just about to leave for home as well, unsure of when I will reach home!

    To the best of my knowledge, he died of a natural cause. It is unfortunate that he died. It is unfortunate that he died of a cardiac arrest. He was not assassinated. So why the hell should hoodlums, under the garb of professing their love for him and shock at his death, riot? What wrong did the innocent people on the streets of Bangalore do? Why should companies kill productivity by being forced to send employees home?
