A Life Worth Living, the BCCI, the Judiciary and Salt

Is a Life Without Justice Worth Living?

Just Yesterday, met a Grand Old man of 83, Mr. Poulose, whose leg got broken recently in a traffic accident. He is in Severe pain, and the doctors told him that medication would bring relief for only a certain period of time, and if he wanted to go for it, the medications themselves would cause side effects. The Long and Short of it, – Mr. Poulose decided to face the pain, and is bearing it without Medication.

Right this fine morning, as I switch on the TV just to know what is new, find that the BCCI (Board of Cricket Control in India, means the ones who control all the money from the TV rights and the ticket sales!!!) are Not going to Implement the recommendations of the Lodha Panel (one under a judge of that name, investigating affairs). For those interested: <http://sports.ndtv.com/news/bcci-maintains-stance-on-lodha-panel-recommendations-cricket-1474640&gt;

Maybe the BCCI is not sharing enough of the profits with…

What I mean to say is, The courts hold their collective breaths, let out their Tongues(!), and go After Cricket. …But Umpteen Women getting Raped, Gang Rapes, Acid Throwing, Declining Farming, Farmer’s Suicides, etc, can go hang!!! A Life Without True Justice. Worth Living?

The courts think they can Control the Citizens merely by Fear of ‘Contempt of court.’

The More Fool he who calls Mere judges as ‘Justices.’ Evidently shows these fellows have No Idea of what Justice is.

We live in Miserable times when We, the Citizens, have to Pussy-foot around when You want to say something about the Situation of Justice in the Country (Thousands and Thousands of People languishing in Jails Without Hearing for 20 Years and More – The First Crime of the courts). Or against politicians.

Dogs of fellows can Rape a Minor and Get bail and Get By; …but You wonder about the Health of (certain) politicos, and behold, You find Special cells formed just to keep watch on this to put You behind bars for this! A Life Worth Living?

But things and situations will Not change by Pussy-footing around. Which is Precisely why they Allow just that! As soon as the Thing called ‘Pussy-footing around’ comes into being, it Shows that it is A Situation of Slavery. Unsaid. Undeclared. Unspoken. Not Even Allowed to be Uttered.

But that is Not a Life Worth Living. And Particularly in a land like India, politicos and judges will have to remember that People will Not Accept Slavery, of Any kind. Indian History is Too Full of Risings for Freedom.

Veerappaandia Kattabomman, ‘an 18th-century chieftain in Tamil Nadu, India, who waged a war against the British East India Company‘. This Quote (edited) also from Wikipedia. The photograph actually shows a famed Tamilian actor, Shivaji Ganesan, who had very successfully portrayed the king.

judges, instead of playing Second Fiddle to politicos, would do well to Just Ask their Very Children What they think about the judicial system and state of Justice in this Great Country. …Actually, the ONLY Judge, (see, I use a Capital for this Judge!) who is on the Lips of Tamilians is Judge Michael D’Cunha, shown below. ALL other so called judges are people Nobody cares for, nor remembers.

Judge Michael D'Cunha

Salt? I know only two languages besides some English. And in Both the Indian languages, (am sure it is there in others too!), the word Salt is considered Very Important. As in:

नमक -हराम !

The word, Namak Haraam, signifies one who has Betrayed Great Trust. And the Very Exact Same sentiment occurs in Tamil, as in:

உப்புக்கு துரோகம் !

English puts it slightly Differently, as in: Not Worth his Salt.

judges are asked to examine their Diet. Maybe because of all the above they totally Eschew the product. If so, they are advised to add it. Because, Tamil says:

உப்பில்லாத பண்டம் குப்பையிலே !

[ The Garbage is the Only place for anything without Salt! ]

Who will bell the Cat?

The Cat Has to be ‘Belled,’ (there, perhaps I have created a New Verb!). And Not Everybody will Shirk from it. We know that they system jails You at the drop of a hat. That the police know hundred of ways and Methods of Torture without leaving a Mark. And that Too many Deaths are occurring in police custody. That Sedition, and ‘Burning/Insulting the Flag’ kind of False charges are hoisted All Too Easily.

But like Mr. Poulose, there are People who are Ready to Endure all that.

Pussy-footing around Accomplishes Nothing. The Biggest Heap of Fuel will not Cook Meal. It is Fire that does that. And All Combustible materials have an ‘Ignition Temperature.’ Unless things, and People, are brought to a Certain ‘point,’ Nothing is going to be done. …But let me say it again, My Revolution is an Absolutely Non-Violent one. The Graphic below, also from the Internet, says it all, and says it very well:

Democracy, Non-Violent Revolution

And I say it again, A Life Without Justice, is Not Worth Living.

Come On! Add Your Voice!

  1. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” We have an independent judiciary in the US w/ checks and balances as among the branches of government. Many, however, criticize the judiciary when it disagrees w/ the legislature.

    • In my opinion, my Dear Anna, if the Judiciary questions/challenges the legislature, then it is a very good thing. Because, again in my opinion, (I acknowledge I am just a Bed bug), legislature works in its own interest.
