How do you get to that point when you think "Lets eat them."?

From what I read, 10 workers were ordered to be evicted from the plantation.  This sparked the riot.

If I was to guess, I would say they were making a "statement" about the fact that they are not even being paid enough to keep food on the table.  1000 workers rioted.

I am disgusted in the cannabilism but I can't help wondering how far they were pushed to feel that level of aggressive hatred for their bosses, 15 involved in the killing and 5 odd involved in eating parts of the body - that speaks to a deliberate act designed to create maximum impact and attention to their deprived conditions imo.

I really hate that so many people can be so demeaned by so few that something like this seems like a reasonable response to some of them.

In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Simbi in response to "What the hell is going on in India", you do know that this happens everywhere in the world and not specially in India, the only difference is a lot of this is not reported. India's like the 10th in crime rate and 50th in rape stats. I know what happened is a disgusting act and I in no way condone it, and I am not disagreeing with you or anything. Just merely stating a fact that this happens everywhere, only depends on what is being reported and what's not.

I've always thought of India as a spiritual and kind place,and all the news coming out as of late,has me despondent. Thats where my comment came from .

Are you Hindu ?
If half the country is Hindu ,and half is Muslim ,half don't eat pork,half don't eat beef.
Or is that a myth ?

:lol: You're horrible. That's why I miss you in the Games section.


I think it was the rage that made people take a bite of boss-roast.
I’m not making up excuses for them, I was just thinking - what makes people cannibals: extreme hunger or extreme anger.
If they ate the boss, they were that hungry. If they only tasted him, they were that angry.

I consulted my co-worker (who is Indian) on this story and she said that area of the country is heavily tribal and they've only recently given up their special diet. I asked if that "special diet" included people. She said, yep.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde
