Beware of dogs!

Yesterday on a drowsy trip back from Mahabs, I hit upon the one thing India needs so very desperately right now. And that is more dogs - watchdogs to watch the government's activities and reports and provide an unbiased review of the government's performance in various fields. Something like what ACLU does in the field of human rights in USA. Come to think of it, now is probably the right time for India to build such organizations - with the Right to Info Act coming into effect soon, it should be feasible for the government to be grilled thoroughly and for some more transparency in our governance structures.
