Public memory

NDTV's attempt to silence a lone blogger has united bloggers against the channel and Ms. Dutt. The blogosphere is buzzing with protests, and bloggers much more prolific and worthy than I have written extensively about it. I'd just like to ask one thing - how long before we forget this Mr. Kunte The same time it took us to forget 26/11, or the train blasts before that, or the Satyam scandal? The thing with public memory is that it is very short lived. Sooner or later, the rest of us will return to our normal lives. What happens to the ones who were actually affected by the issue?
