shock and outrage....

I'm still numb with shock, after reading the news about the Mumbai cop, Sunil (the bastard shares my first name) More who raped a 17 year old teenager who was just walking with her friends on Marine Drive. Here's a link to Amit Verma's posts on the incident, and more, as well as Uma Mahadevan-Dasgupta's thoughtful outburst. Sometimes incidents such as these make me almost completely lose my faith in humanity.

In my earlier post I'd mentioned public apathy. Add a morally bankrupt policeforce, and and overworked and archaic judiciary to that.

People have forgotten (or perhaps they never came across) Tagore's Geetanjali.

"Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free........
...........Where words come out from the depth of truth....
.........Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way....
.....Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake."

We all need to remember these words, and remind each other of it. And awaken ourselves from our apathy.

I like a game which needs to use wonderland Gold, when you do not have wonderland online Gold, you must borrow wonderland money from friends, or you buy wonderland Gold. If you get cheap wonderland online Gold, you can continue this game.
