  • Whatever happened to joan Osborne? There was a three month period (I think) in the 90s when she was all I listened to.

Suck it, haters!

Suck it, haters!

  • Yet again, the courts get something right – when a foreign national is concerned. It’s not that I’m against the courts working properly for the citizens of other countries who might be our guests but it makes a striking contrast when one sessions court awards the death penalty for rape and murder while another asks the victim to marry her rapist. An example followed again and again. And yet another acquits the accused because the victim had first eloped with him. Because, obviously, if you want to marry someone or think you want to marry someone then you have no right to say no.
  • Where’s Ram Gopal Verma’s labcoat?

    Arrey, looks like atleast two of the cases you mentioned seems to be false cases set up by parents/guardians against love marriages.

    I think worst thing about Rape in India is the victim is considered the convict. Her life is doomed. We could make movies about/write about it, these things don’t seem to change.

    Beth – it was your mention of “dude” that made me think of it 😀

    Sachita – you mean the girl who eloped? I think the thing about rape laws in India is that the judges seem at perfect liberty to interpret the sentencing in any old way they wish.

    Memsaab – naheeeeeeennn! 😀

    Bollyviewer – I’m thankful for small mercies! I don’t think my eyes could have taken it!
