Is shoe-slinging the best way to protest?

Former US-President George Bush is a trend-setter of sorts. It’s just not about his occasional gaffes, here it is about the shoe-throwing episode. After he missed the shoe-attack by Iraqi journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi, it has become the most popular way of protesting in the modern age. 

Recently, two of our politicos were ‘shoe-stung’ – PC Chidambaram and Naveen Jindal – at different places for different reasons. Of course, both these netas ‘forgave‘ the offenders. 

- But is this the right way to display anger and frustration?
