Beginning of the End ?


If not that , what would you consider the following :

#  BCCI tells Supreme Court , " We are Supreme . Do not mess with us "


#  Vijay Mallya says : " Who is Supreme to judge me when powerful politicians / bureaucrats let me fly away ? "


#  Subroto Roy says : " Can't you see that for last 2 years I am trying to raise money by selling off my assets ? "


#  CM Siddaramaiyah says : " I have just enough ( bottled ) drinking water left for Supreme Judges "


#  Nitish Kumar tells Patna HC : " If I find one bottle of liquor in a village , I will put all villagers in jail "


#  Congress Party says : " National Herald is a private property , inherited by Rahulji . You can't take it away "


#  Haryana ( or was it Punjab ? ) says : " Blocking Sutlej Waters by refilling canal , is our Birth Right ala Tilakji "



Among all this cacophony , the only silver lining is the " Mook ( Silent ) Marches " of the Marathas through cities of Maharashtra , demanding reservation


Without burning a single bus / looting a single shop / stone pelting the police / disrupting traffic / killing innocents !


On Mahatma Gandhi's birthday today , I get a feeling that if the Marathas were to appeal to the Supreme Court in this regard , then , before giving its order , its judges would ask themselves :


:  What would have Bapu done in such a case ?  Would he have said ,

   " Transfer to these  peaceful / non violent / democratic satyagrahis , 30 % 

reservation quota from those communities who got it by violent means " :


And then refuse to admit their appeal , knowing that no political party or the government in power, would want to lose their " Vote Banks " by implementing such a " moral " decision !


I wonder what the Supreme Court judges would do next :

*   Forward their resignations to the President , or

*   Sit on a silent " dharana " before Bapu's statue ?
