What Travesty!!!

It is quite telling that Manu Sharma is enjoying the good life doing the rounds of 5-star lounges in New Delhi while out on parole for having committed murder.

The shameless CM of Delhi doesn't mind defending his parole ... for "good conduct."

This sure shows what a farce the legal system truly is.

There's surely a divide in India: a class of people of India who are law-abiding and are "under" the law and another class of Indians who are clearly above the law.

Politicians definitely belong to that "upper" class. Some businessmen and other rich people also belong there as well.

Once a person becomes rich, of course, all his sins are forgiven ... whatever means he might have adopted to acquire his wealth become irrelevancies ...

I have knowingly adopted a "male" tone in writing the above paras as there are hardly any females who would qualify as being someone who has made a lot of money using underhand means.

India definitely needs a "Rang De Basanti" type of action in real life.

The problem, of course, is that once you shoot the corrupt politicians, other corrupt politicians will take their place.

So, even the revolutionary fervour of Rang De Basanti won't really do the trick ...

Is there a solution at all???

Well, the question of a "solution" will only arise once people acknowledge that there's a problem to begin with!!!

And people of India, being the complacent race that they are, are quite happy to lead their daily, miserable lives as long as they get their daily bread and their family and near and dear ones are okay.

India is definitely never going to see an "Indian Revolution" mounted on the same scale as a "French Revolution" or the War of Independence in the United States.

Well, it seems the Government of India is up to its usual censoring ways ... http://online.wsj.com/article/SB126327347865425871.html?mod=WSJ_hp_us_mostpop_read It's not as bad as what the Chinese are doing in battling Google. The Internet is awash in pornography and the feeble attempts of the Govt. of India won't be able to stem the tide. The Govt. should merely restrict itself to ensuring that there's no child pornography or trafficking of humans. There are problems galore for the Govt. to worry about as it is ...
