The accident poses a lot of questions... The questions Asianet and our newsmedia should have asked! But alas! Everyone condole the death of the gitarist Prakash Krishna and gives a igh of relief that Athira Murali escaped without injuries.

1. How come the teenage artist is travelling at a time when she should have been sleeping?

2. Whare lies the responsibility of the organizers?? Where lies the accountability?

3. IN Kerala many known people have died in accidents which have all happened at the early hours - between 2 and 5 in the morning. This is the sleeping time. Especially for the driver. Else he should have been sleeping earlier.

Actress Monisha, Resident editor of Mathrubhumi EKM (Thomas), some young son of an industrilist....the list is endless.

In the current case there was no caolition with a lorry or KSRTC Bus. Clearly driver slept off - understandable but avoidable!

The whole troupe should have slept in Tiruvialla and gone to TVM in the morning. That is the civilized way of doing things.

It is time, we Keralites mixes our progress with sanity!!!
