Kolkata's favorite B word

Yes, my city is again entangled in the dreaded B word-Bandh. Today and tomorrow, two different political parties have decided to bring the city to a standstill. The reason? Rising prices of petrol, diesel and cooking gas. The big question-will all this make any difference? Well, of course not. In the past, bandhs have not helped the common man's cause. The situation doesn't change now. It will just give the political biggies a chance to flex muscles and prove their power. For us-the hapless souls, we will have to bear the heat of the rising price index.
