A license to kill

It took 13 long years to nail the culprit and the justice to be delivered and only couple of hours for High Court to free the convicted actor. The wheel has been set in motion again and Salman is back into the lap of luxuries and stardom. His surviving victims will continue to sit in the ‘handicap’ seat of a bus like they have been doing for the last 13 years. And for the departed,

I stand by Salman Khan: I believe he is “Being Human”

My friend and I were driving home after a late night gig, the car was moving at a speed of about 60kms/hr, quite surprising for Bombay even at odd hours.

The stretch at Juhu Versova link road has a divider, where people sleep, a hand came right on to the

#NirbhayaInsulted: What are we hiding behind?  

A lot of debate on the film ‘India’s Daughter’ actually happened even before the film was seen, and based on this debate/furor it was promptly banned. I don’t blame the naysayers in this case as their perception was based on the despicable statements and lack of remorse by the rapist and his lawyers, which is really blood boiling when you watch it. But that apart, the film actually holds a mirror to the society. It
