Without detailed comment at this stage, I am publishing this photo of the queue for checking of documents at the Regional Passport Office, Shastri Bhawan, Haddows Road, Chennai. There are other queues involved, first to certify whether you have all the documents (very unlikely, run around in circles), then this one, and then one to pay the fees. So if you are planning to apply online for a passport, consider this queue even on an inauspicious Tuesday. Just to clarify, I have no superstitions, I am just reflecting public sentiment.
Why is the Government punishing itself and the people? I have no clue. Why should people queue up after applying online? Again, an ‘only in India’ phenomenon.
More later, after I get my renewed passport.
This is one picture and story that you may not find in the mainstream media. Television is too busy to look at the problems of ordinary citizens. Newspapers…again, baffles me.
