Life or Death...

he is young
he has killed many
he planned the killings - not in a fit of rage

he is unrepentant
he is Kasab!

Does he deserve life or death?

I suspect my individual opinion does not count for much here. The legal system in this country and other political considerations will decide on that. Me - just the human face - one of many...

Folks like me were the victims of this young man's killing spree. His friends were killed. He survived and lives to ask for perfume and freedom.

We - INDIANs - have almost forgotten this tragedy and the entire drama is now relegated to the back pages of unread newspapers. I sense the DARK ONE is winning.... if only I had the opportunity to enforce justice - as it rightfully should. We haven't gained anything by keeping him alive thus far - apart from being labelled as a NOBLE and soft state. What crappy times to live in....

PS : even if he gets a life sentence.... I trust to an honest criminal to serve him with justice... so then we're all off the hook!!

i read a story in which a lawyer fought brilliantly for the freedom for a person just like this; and after he was released, arranged for some SAS guys to terminate him with extreme prejudice.

Pretty filmy, but will make a good story.

Why talk only of Kasab? What about all those people in Gujarat riots who carried swords and killed others only because of religion? They are no less than Kasab

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.
