der aaye durust aaye...par itni der se aaye!

13 years is a long time for delivering justice to the relatives of the 257 killed. the real kingpins flourish, unfazed and confident of never being punished. even if they do get extradited (never!), they can happily hang around for 13 or more years before they are brought to book.

sanju baba goes to court again. dont know if i pity him for his imbecilic actions which continue to haunt him through the years, 18 months behind bars notwithstanding. he obviously isnt very sharp upstairs....

so many other zillions of cases gathering dust in our courtrooms...the guilty grow fat, old and die...the victims if not dead already, go broke, old and die....as do their relatives....tandoor case, graham staines, kolhapur sisters, rajiv gandhi's killers, jessica lal, shivani bhatnagar, priyadarshini mattoo...and these are just the high-profile cases...there are so many more in each and every taluka of our great huge country!

fast-track courts dispensing sentences at lightning speed only for cases involving foreign nationals is an insult...

we deserve more. and soon.

someday

yep..we do deserve more..or are we getting what we collectively deserve due to our indifference; i sometimes wonder...until, we are directly affected, it is merely a statistic like so many that we assimilate..

i agree, our consistent 'chalta hai' attitude is to blame...and unfortunately, don't see it disappearing anytime soon.
