New Delhi: Popular English author Chetan Bhagat  caused quite a stir on Wednesday morning by demanding punishments for people who have 'raped'  the Indian economy causing the Rupee to slide.





Bhagat tweeted:  "The Rupee is asking, is there no punishments for my rapists?".

The Twitterati immediately objected to the use of word 'rape', after which Bhagat deleted his tweet.

These are some of Bhagat's tweets today:

Idiots here care less about the meltdown about the economy but more about making personal attacks. No wonder such a fab economy we have.

People here flipping out on using word rape as metaphor. Murder is OK. Using F word is also OK. Oh wait, chance to attack someone. Why miss?

Have people lost perspective totally? Can a word can officially have several meanings and contexts? Or is twitter about looking for fight?

— Chetan Bhagat (@chetan_bhagat) August 28, 2013
I deleted the harmless tweet because my haters were cutting it up and reposting it out of context with implied meanings.Forgot they lurk.
