`God Save India....' is how the nun, allegedly raped by Hindu fundamentalists in Orrissa's Kandmahal district two months ago, ends her presser in New Delhi..demanding a CBI probe into the case as she does not trust the Orissa police anymore.

A loss of faith not in God but in the Indian State.

The Supreme Court has already denied an appeal by her to hand the case over to the Central Bureau of Investigations.

This compels the young nun to speak out publicly in New Delhi. Her face covered she spoke softly but clearly, interrupted only by the swelling tears under her glasses.

Its a shame for India.

But no there is no word about it from India's Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.

The nun need not even have approached the Supreme Court. The CBI falls under the direct charge of India's Prime Minister and he could easily have ordered the CBI probe.

But he doesn't.

And there is no word from Orissa's chief minister the English speaking Navin Patnaik.

His top police officer tells the media he has ten people arrested and ready for identification parade but the nun is not cooperating.

The nun tells India about the ordeal she went through when she sees the rapist and attackers talking in a very friendly manner with the Orrisa police and a few even watched her being attacked and raped.

She was paraded semi-naked across a street.

And no word from the Prime -Minister- in-waiting BJPs L.K. Advani.

No word from former PMs of India. Are they all dead and gone.

The violence erupted after a Hindu Swami was killed allegedly by Maoists but Hindu groups decided to attack Christians instead, whom they blame for helping the Maoists.

Whatever the story may be the Orissa and Indian government have done nothing the contain the Maoist menace.

Who funds the maoists, who supports must be made public...because maosists use sophisticated weapons and have training to take on the Indian State.

Are Indian political parties Maoist?

Then there is news about the arrest of Sadhvi Pragya Singh, a former Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad member, (student wing of the BJP), who is allegedly involved in the Malegaon avenge the Delhi blasts.

Where is India going?

Red , Green, or Saffron!

What colour would you get when you mix all these - a very deep red - like a blood clot in a very poor dusty Indian village.

India bleeds.
