When the government made the unfortunate but irreversible mistake of accepting the Mandal Commission’s directive over Reservation, Rajiv Goswami set himself on fire in protest. Two decades later, as young India is spearheading another movement, this time against relentless and senseless crime against women, the fire burns as hot as ever, but is scathing the criminals and ineffectual politicians instead.

As the youth in Delhi enact an awe inspiring act of courage, braving police retaliation and Delhi’s bitter cold, day after day and night after night (which after being water-hosed cannot be too much fun), they remember that they are young...and keep the hope and (sometimes biting) humor, alive.   

Here are the most twitterific exclamations and expressions of the protest (and its high handed handling) at India Gate:

Rahul Bose
been told the way things are shaping up at india gate, women are leaving the site. talk about irony. #delhigangrape

Madhu Kishwar
Young women shouting slogan at India Gate" Sonia jiski mummy hai, woh sarkar nikammi hai"

Aditi Mathur
The congress is acting true to its election symbol: Talk to the hand#delhigangrape

Ramesh Srivats

Why call it India Gate? Call it Government-of-India Gate.

Statistically speaking, chances of Russian president Putin meeting the protesting crowd is more than Indian prez doing it.
