Some thoughts and some feelings Sept 13
Some thoughts and some feelings, all mine:
Like the nation is happy that ‘justice is done’ and the four rapists will be hanged. Sadly, that is the only good news this nation heard in recent times.
Like people celebrate death if a devotee dies natural death in a temple. And here is another extreme of some members of public celebrating death sentence of rapists. Strange that those who surrender to God and those who surrender to Satan get the same treatment in our society!
Like HE seems to be in a punishing mood; devotes carrying idols for immersions are bitten by stingray fish. Why not ask accused in Shakti Mills rape case to do the immersion?
Like news report says ‘Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan are banned for life in match fixing case, and Ajit Chandila’s case will be taken up later!’ What kind of game is being played by BCCI?
Like the news today is that GDP, Gold, Silver, Rupee and Sensex have fallen! Isn’t that irrelevant? Prices are rising and that is relevant!
And finally this: Like research at University of Southern Denmark concludes that “hangovers reduce with age!” I suppose this is so because with advancing age, wives become more powerful than men who change their habits!
You know, I've never been able to celebrate the end of human life, however heinous.. I mean didn't someone say, hate the crime not the doer. Might sound idealistic or contrary to public opinion.. I think I would have been really glad if someone grabbed these men and killed or permanently disabled some of them while they were trying to commit the act, if someone tried to save the girl… but the death sentence sounds like cold blodded murder. Is it really a solution? I don't think so..
Capital Punishment -in the 1st case is highly debate. Infact in my opinion, it is like an instant relief to the Guilty. We should have in our system some extreme punishments where the convicts are celled for life and suffer each day.
They should live with guilt and pain all their life, not be hanged to death and relieved of pain.
Cricket- Not following this closely but feels like they were the ones caught, there could be hidden faces much stronger ones veiling still.
