Chennai Express Top grosser in Bollywood

 
Chennai express declared all time best grosser in bollywood. It beat even 3 idiots. Doesn't mean it is a great picture though!! Coz someone forgot to mention that a Rs 75/- inox ticket of 3 idiots was sold between Rs/-125 - 175 for chennai express owing to inflation, rising costs etc!!!

But who cares, Mr SRK and all the other stars are laughing their way to the bank getting bigger pay cheques!! and we are the ones merrily contributing to that!!! How??? Pse read my earlier article here

Death for Nirbhaya Rapists

At last the first judgement is Out - All four are convicted to death.  I say 'first' because I am sure there will be a series of appeals by the Defense counsel Mr AP Singh who crossed all limits when he declared
"Why don't people first control their daughters? I'd burn my daughter alive if she was having pre-marital sex,roaming around with her boyfriend at night"
I understand that lawyers have a code of ethics that they will defend their client no matter what his case is.  So in that sense, if the defense counsel  tried to defend him in court, that is reasonable. But taking it on a personal level outside the Court is simply unpalatable and just not acceptable to the rest of us.  (This is where the NCW and the so many other Woman's bodies must step in and make sure such comments are not made!!)
He must not take this conviction to be an attack on his professional abilities!! It is important for him to make this distinction otherwise he will continue to claim that his clients are innocent (while the accused themselves confess to the crime) and keep filing the case in higher courts and then to the President also!! It would only further delay the justice.
Also, what sort of times are we living in, if the rapists in such a high profile crime, which rocked the sense n sensibilities of a billion plus nation are yet to be punished after 8 months!! Now, the defense counsel claims his clients are innocent!! If getting justice in such a high profile case is so difficult which even the honourable court had classified as ' rarest of rare', punishing your local 'road side romeos' for eve teasing or molesting may be an impossible task!!

Further, Imagine the travails of any ordinary woman trying to get her rapists to book. Would she ever be able to get Justice in her life time? No wonder, so many rapes are not reported!!

Justice, in order to be effective, has to be delivered swiftly and surely and more importantly needs to be seen to be so, to prevent recurrence of such incidents!!!

Nirbhaya Verdict

Nirbhaya Verdict
All four found guilty on all counts!!!

Half the battle is Won!!

The Court found all the four of them guilty on all counts!!

Now, its time to pronounce the judgement by the court tommorow.  Hope it brings cheer to the Nation as a whole.

We look forward to good news tommorow!!

and then the fight must begin to bring the juvenile to justice (under the law of the land ofcourse)

Only then the soul of the Brave heart will rest in peace!!

(and our daughters too!!)

Nirbhaya Delhi Gangrape - Judgement Day

Judgement day for the criminals who raped and murdered the braveheart who battled it out with them.

Really wonder what sort of punishment would be given to them as the allegedly most violent guy was let away with just 3 years in a correction home just because he is juvenile!!.  The min punishment for the others should be life imprisonment (life means life and not 15 years) and max of course is death penalty. The punishment given must also serve as a deterrent to others.

The treatment of the juvenile case is very delicate and I am sure the last is not heard in this case.  It should not be,  otherwise what stops other juveniles to start raping/killing Women and then hide under the garb of being a juvenile.  Does being a juvenile give you a licence to rape?  The juvenile case will be in focus till justice is delivered to the victim.

FOR NOW, LETS KEEP OUR FINGERS CROSSED AND HOPE FOR A SWIFT AND BOLD JUDGEMENT WHICH SHOULD PUT THESE CRIMINALS BEHIND BARS FOREVER/OR CLOSER TO GOD AND SERVE AS A STERN WARNING TO OTHERS

Be Yourself

Captain Ed Freeman, United States Airforce, Medal of Honor



 
This email was forwarded to me by a friend!! Though it is not concerning heroes of our country, I still read on!! I am happy that I did because I felt so happy just reading about the heroic deed. I feel proud that there are such human beings. I am also very sure that such heroes do exist in our Armed Forces also. we only need good reporters to bring out their heroics in the open.  May this great Man's soul rest in peace. And let us try to read more about our own heroic soldiers who are constantly guarding our borders, be it on the land, waters or the skies!! Jai Hind!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I feel honoured to post this on my blog - Read On for the forwarded email-

You're a 19 year old . You're critically wounded and dying in the
jungle somewhere in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam. It's November 11, 1967. LZ (landing zone) X-ray.

Your unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense from 100 yards away, that your CO (commanding officer) has ordered the MedEvac helicopters to stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you're not getting out. Your family is half way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again.

As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day. Then - over the machine gun noise - you faintly hear that sound of a
helicopter. You look up to see a Huey coming in. But, it doesn't seem real because no MedEvac markings are on it.

Captain Ed Freeman is coming in for you. He's not MedEvac so it's not his job, but he heard the radio call and decided he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway. Even after the MedEvacs were ordered not to come. He's coming anyway.

And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they
load 3 of you at a time on board. Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses and safety. And, he kept coming back!! 13 more times! Until all the wounded were out.

No one knew until the mission was over that the Captain had been hit 4 times in the legs and left arm. He took 29 of you and your buddies out that day. Some would not have made it without the Captain and his Huey.

Medal of Honor Recipient, Captain Ed Freeman, United States Air Force, died last Wednesday at the age of 70, in Boise , Idaho. May God Bless and Rest His Soul.

I bet you didn't hear about this hero's passing, but we've sure seen a
whole bunch about Lindsay Lohan, Tiger Woods and the bickering of congress over Health Reform.

Medal of Honor Winner Captain Ed Freeman. Shame on the media !!!

Now... YOU pass this along. Honor this real hero...Please

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Our Indian ARMED FORCES - A big salute to them  to them too
(Please mail me stories of our heroes)
