    After "classical language status", its now time for demanding an NSG unit

    Around this time last month, folks in Kerala were angry because Kannada and Telugu had been granted 'classical language' status. A month later, the outcome of the terror in Mumbai is that every single state in India would now demand an NSG unit. That's "National Security Guards", not the Nuclear Suppliers Group!

    So far, I've already seen demands from Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Assam and Maharashtra. I wouldn't be surprised if others also pitched in. Having an NSG unit would then become a status symbol, much like having an IIT, IIM or IISc campus; a Microsoft, Wipro, TCS, Infosys or Reliance office; a dozen flyovers that do little to solve traffic problems; a metro rail system designed for today & not for 20 years hence; a Nehru stadium or a Mahatma (or even Uttamar) Gandhi road.
