Justice delayed is justice denied??!

The recent twitterati outburst on Salman Khan drunk and driving case was expected, but more astonishing was the reactions came from so called celebrities of Bollywood who went on to heights to defend the court’s suspended verdict. Many of us might have read those tweets from hypocrite celebrities who once acted or produced Vintage movies where a widow mother and son(heroes) often begged for justice and that was the common theme in most of the movies then. Farah Khan Ali and Abhijeet Singer went on to defend the verdict insensitively and illogically as if great injustice was done to beinghuman Salman Khan.

Many twitterati alike few e-media houses were appalled by the high court verdict. The Uber rich of India can afford witty famous lawyers to defend them even if they are at the wrong side but the poor cannot afford the same even if they are on the right side. It is known that fee of famous lawyers range from 30lakhs-50lakhs/Day where as a poor cannot even earn 500/day leave aside the lawyer fees.At one of the Ted talk show Bryan Stevenson said “Our criminal justice system treats you better if you are rich and guilty than if you are poor and innocent.” Which I feel aptly applies in this case also.

It should be observed that the High Court has suspended the sentence and not overturned the sentence. So it is not yet the case being called as “Justice denied for poor” legally .Of course justice delayed is justice denied but for whom?? For beinghuman Salman Khan or For the families of those who got injured and died in the incident?? .

We human beings mostly respond to a situation or crisis only when our dear ones are affected by it.We do not live in a era where we consider our fellow human beings as part of our tribe. The Same goes with the Bollywood celebrities as they never reacted so much to any other similar cases in India. Bollywood must understand that One cannot erase a criminal act by doing many good things. One of my friend while casual discussion said “few (Obviosly I don’t want to write their names(sic!)) actors are role models for the future generation. But how a prejudiced irrational person can be a role model for any??.Once the great Martin Luther King said “Injustice anywhere is a threat to Justice everywhere”. Hope the Justice is done in this case also by law of the land.


Just a RaNdoM thought ….

Bond between Human(e)s !!-

What it is that makes one to converse with other person/stranger??Why this interpersonal bonding goes like a sine-wave sometimes??
Is it, our needs?? craving for mental or psychological attachment?? or Just to kill boredom ?? The answer would differ from person to person.why would some human beings just use this bond to satisfy their temporal needs??
Are they suffer from attention deficit syndrome for time being because of the needed attention they didn’t get from whom they expected?? Why can’t human beings be just humane?? I think,The answers to these questions aren’t easy..
It may be because of the effect of environment/virtue/value they had from the beginning of their childhood.The fact is we live in a fission-fusion society and limbic resonance is distorted towards negative these days.Few may say one should not expect anything from any bondage we grow,but ..is it possible to not to expect??
Still tinkering… to find out 😀 ..


Nepal Earthquake deaths :Who is responsible ??

“Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength no matter what sort of difficulties how painful experience is if we lose our hope that’s our real disaster.” ~~Tibetan Saying

Earthquakes are results of geological processes,Where even a Superhuman can’t stand-up against a natural phenomenon but,We human beings are far more responsible for unprecedented casualties and catastrophes.So called technologically advanced humans couldn’t develop a technology to predict a EQ before it strikes though Seismologists can analyse the data recorded from seismic stations across the globe.

Its been recorded by scientists and geologists that across the Himalayas there is around 20mm of convergence each year, roughly half of the overall convergence between the Indian and Eurasian plates. to make it more clear we can say, every year a person in Siberia becomes roughly 40 mm closer to a person in central India, as the Earth’s crust deforms across the broad region between them. Nepal is located in one of the most geologically vulnerable areas.The EQ was a result of movement of Indian plate underneath the Eurasian plate and other geological complex phenomenons.

The 25th April Earthquake was a cataclysm never seen before by this generation of Nepalese.Is the Nature responsible or We,the Human Species ??? for the loss of lives.Its a known fact that,the Himalayan belt is prone to tectonic activities such as EQs.So why can’t we develop the strategies and methodologies to mitigate the loss of lives?? Why can’t we emulate from the countries which are more hostile to these kind of disasters?? Is the greed of human beings and unsustainable development in sight has led to these consequences?? One has to think now and act before its too late to face another calamity.

What can be done to mitigate the loss of lives in these kind of catastrophes??We know the seismic zones of earth and in which zone our habitation is growing.So we should use the research done till now to formulate policies for better future.

  • First and foremost thing is human must respect the Earths carrying capacity and shed his greed for haphazard growth.
  •  Governments must implement strict building codes which are in conformation with seismic codes. VIZ.Poor,unplanned  and haphazard constructions of houses or commercial entities must not be allowed..According to National Disaster Management Authority’s (NDMA) 2014 report on “Seismic Retrofitting of Deficient Buildings and Structures”, points out that the condition and quality of Indian building stock is very poor when it comes to seismic performance.
  •  Restrict the unplanned growth of cities on the fault planes.
  • Construction of dams in seismic prone zones should be stopped. Ex-Its been said by scientists that Koyna dam construction in Maharashtra has made the region seismic prone.
  • Making pre-risk assessment plans and drills to mitigate causalities.
  • Planned Infrastructure  development to handle large scale devastation can reduce loss of lives.Ex-Hospitals,Fire stations etc..
  • Public awareness coupled with Institutional and Government support can help to reduce the devastation.Ex- Disaster Mitigation plan.

Decades of research has gone into understanding these earthquakes. It has been hypothesized for long that a large earthquake, called the “great Himalayan earthquake”, can strike anytime, but its time and place cannot be predicted. In many locations in the Himalayan belt there is enough energy stored currently to lead to one.Many of North Indian cities are prone to this.Such as Delhi,Srinagar,Kolkata,Gauhati,Shimla,Gangtok,Darjeeling and Doon.

It is a myth that most of the damage is done by shaking of the ground during an earthquake. But ground-shaking is a complex phenomenon. When the ground rattles beneath a building, it makes the building sway.Lessons can be drawn from cities like Tokyo and San Francisco, which regularly battle shaking grounds with their seismic-resilient engineering. We cant stop a natural process like earthquake, but we can certainly avert large scale devastation.So we are far more responsible for loss of our dear ones in these type of events rather than any natural phenomenon or any GOD.
