justice for jessica

ok enough of crappy writing most of us dont like reading abt each others lives . so now on to some serious stuff ........ yesterday finally after 7 yrs justice was delivered to jessica . it got me thinking about the power with the people , the correct use of the media and above all sanctity of our judicial system . manu sharma was given life imprisonment . but also it got me thinking how the people of our country can be intimidated , bought and become hostile . For 7 years manu sharma had used all his cards intimidation, money ,his dad's political power ....... al for saving himself but finally justice prevailed all because for the first time in country people understood what it is to be an Indian ..... to use ur rights when it is ur duty to use them . we in india have rights of speech , holding meeting , peaceful protests and above all democracy ...... our government is not over our judicial system . we have to use it all not for somebody else but for us . ne girl can be another jessica and ne son of a big baron can be another manu sharma . this incident also brought out the power of middle class . a class which is easily forgotten during elections , during page 3 parties , during all those long speeches ....... so much to the effect that our education minister ..... who just has to think about his election easily forgets them and introduces reservation for his vote bank . i would call this judgement the victory of middle class . but there were some things which saddened me too . ram jethmalani taking up a case to prove manu sharma innocent ....... it can still b forgotten considering jethmalani is a lawyer ....... but how could he stoop to such low level as to question the work of a dead person ? i had a lot of respect for him ....... but not now ...... not after he has shown that his job is not about bringing out the truth but to shadow the truth and to cover the murderer . also it took 7 yrs ...... god damn 7 yrs to deliver this judgement ......... 7 yrs is along time ...... a long wait ..... for justice.... for the family of victim...... for witnesses and most importantly for the country ........ witnesses like shyan munshi turned hostile ...... time paved in way for various conspiracy theories ...... but bina sharma's statement got in justice ......... i had hoped manu would get death penalty ........ but i was moved today when i heard sarah's statement that she wanted manu to get life imprisornment ....... it again got me thinking can 23 yrs in prison change a person ..... get his crime to a low level ....... i say no ....... our ecosystem would't let it happen .......... yeah i agree all of us have read that story from leo tolstoy ....... but you tell me how many people change ...... how many people have a heart change ....... very few ....... our society wont accept him ...... and even if it does ..... it wud be because of his power and money . finally i feel there is a need for revolution ..... yes a revolution to tell the people with power that the people of this republic are not sleeping nemore ...... their is an awakening ...... the awakening of the middle class ... a new dawn ...... and this middle class wont take ne more crap ........ thanks jessica ..... thanks for awakening these people...... whereever you are may your soul rest in peace.....
