India: Death Penalty If Convicted Of Rape Of Minor

Death penalty for rape of minors: President approves ordinance

What’s wrong with extending the rule / law to every convicted rapist? Why is there a need to create this distinction?

The prosecution and the defense teams are still expected to make their own respective case and present plausible evidence / witness / testimony.

The right to appeal against the verdict (whatever it may be) would be available to be exercised.

Rape is a horrific and senseless crime. If a court convicts an accused of the rape charges, then why should the age of the victim (or that of the accused) matter?

Modi Mad About Masala To Media… Hmm

On April 18th, the Chutiya Chief Minister of Tripura made a remark “Internet and satellite communication had existed in the days of Mahabharata…” [Link].

This seemed to have upset Madarchod Modi ji a bit, and a few days later, Modi had a chat with the party members and lawmakers:

Hmm…

Here is a two minute video from Modi’s YouTube Channel, where he himself is giving masala to the media with some ill-informed statements.

I guess he just felt bad that someone else got the headline.

#TimesUp Movement … #MeToo Movement

  • Start a Twitter/Facebook campaign.
  • Wear black outfits for an awards night.
  • Wear a white rose for another awards night.

Is this your idea of protest / support? What difference will any of this make? Wouldn’t it be better to just carry placards? At least that way, even the uninitiated/unaware would know what issue you are supporting and/or protesting.

If only the solution to the issue was as simple as having a dress-code for formal events… sigh.

Given that majority of the individuals still haven’t even identified the problem correctly, expecting them to come up with a sensible solution would in fact be expecting way too much.

I reiterate – This is NOT a gender issue. The problem is concentration of power (irrespective of the gender of the person in such position(s)).

‘Slum Stay’ For INR 2,000 Per Night

Why?!

Listen, I do get the ‘To each his own’ philosophy. I understand it. But the desire to experience slum life when you do NOT need to? THIS is just idiotic!

Why would ANYONE want to experience this? What the fuck is wrong with this world?

Narcos – Season 3

Season 1 was amazing. Season 2 was fine. Season 3… meh.

The two characters that managed to stand out (in my opinion):

Pacho Herrera (played by Alberto Ammann)

Chepe Santacruz Londoño (played by Pêpê Rapazote)

The rest of the cast and the performances were disappointing. Hopefully Season 4 will be better.
