New Year is here !!

Happy New Year !!

I am in Ner York City this time for new year and it has just been ossum. Times square was filled with people on all directions and 12 streets were blocked. Saw most of the sites in this city over the past two days. However, the city IMHO is over-hyped and has nothing spectacular. Off to LA tomo evening..
And yes, I almost missed my flight from Mumbai on 28th. More on that in a later post. Until then, have fun and be good !

Sreesanth at his swinging best !

Easily the funniest thing I have ever seen on a cricket field. Sreesanth was showing his heart, his dance and his bat at Nel !

Someday, Nel needs to be fined for his sledging !!

Is the justice system in India finally coming of age ??

In the recent weeks, India has seen some landmark decisions in its courts.
There was Sanjay Dutt, who was convicted under the arms act but acquitted under TADA and his sentencing is due next month. Then, there was former Union Minister Shibu Soren who was sentenced to life imprisonment for murdering his secretary. Incidentally, his first night in jail was a troublesome one as mosquitos bugged the hell outta him !
More recently, Navjot Singh Sidhu, the man famous for his quotes was convicted in an age old case (1988) and sentenced to three years in prison. Earlier, the impression among the general public was that powerful people would never be convicted, even if there were tons of cases and charge-sheets against them.

In my opinion, this trend is changing and soon we should see more and more tainted famous people behind bars ! In fact, the supreme court has quashed petitions from Lalu and Rabri asking all their cases to be dismissed ! Way to go !!
Atleast now, these people will think twice before they do something wrong. I mean, having someone as a union minister, someone who has murdered his own secretary is simply not done!! Alas, the prime minister, one of the most respected people in India has no choice as his hands are tied because he has to run a coalition government.
Hopefully, things have changed for the better now!
