Hartal in Kerala

I went to office on a hartal day.

Today (19th Feb 08), UDF had declared hartal, against the rise of prices.

I took bike to work at 8:30 in the morning. Went around 18 kilometres on NH47. There was only some bike or car here and there.

I could go at 80 - 90 kmph :)

I found a KSRTC bus plying its route, with a police vehicle escorting it.

I came back after 6. The traffic had almost recovered by then. Still there were vehicles missing :)

UDF had declared that the hartal will not be affecting any normal life. But, it did. Why?

Coz, people are afraid of may be violence during hartals.
