i am more curious - will blood be thicker than justice?
will maran squeal to the cbi, in order to get off lightly; and leave kani/raja to hold the bag?
will shourie be indicted, for being the original author of the scam arrangements.
one arguement that raja could put forward, is that he was only the implementer of leg work done by the prev govt.
another story re maran bros: when i was in chennai in january, the yellow taxi that we took all the time was owner operated, with a central call centre which dispatched the orders.
apparently maran bros set their eyes on it and offered 25 crores for the company, which the founder refused. he went to amma for advice, and thus opened a caste based organization, and supported amma openly in the elections.
apparently it was a practice for the marans, that if they like a company, offer a very good price and get it regardless. the price they paid for spice jet was well above market value. from what i hear.
MK's kudumbam has proved to be his worst enemies !!
1. Do you think Dyanidhi will go to Tihar to give company to Raja and Kani? I say probably.
2. Do you think the real Boss, Kalanidhi will go to jail? I say NOT
3. Do you think the long arm of CBI will touch Kalaigner Mu Ka? I seriously doubt.
While I support a robust anti-corruption drive by the CBI, irrespective of any party affiliation, I get the feeling they seem to "pick and choose" (perhaps by the intervention of the Home Ministry??). I hate it.
And, the SC and other courts cannot jail the Defendants (whether Kani or Raja or whoever) for more than 28 days in custody to "investigate the matter".
Now Raja & Co are in custody for months! This gives the public an appearance that they are ALREADY Convicted of the crimes alleged.
This is a sad development. Since none of these people are "flight risk" they ALL must be released on bail bonds immediately. Let them all litigate the matter in the open Court and let the judiciary renders its considered verdict.
If we believe we don't live in a Police State.
Y, long ago, in my college days, I was of the opinion that my life's purpose was to see whatever crap Kodambakkam saw fit to release. However, after I came over to U.S., a country that I thought was filled only with super-intelligent people, I was driven by more mundane things as doing well in my studies. So, I lost track of Tamil movies and never regained any interest....
To me it looks, the primary offender is Alagiri (and Karunanidhi) ... not Adimuthu Raja, in a way! Alagiri is walking around with smiles, while Raja is sweating inside Tihar!!
What an irony! "Yengae Neethi Ayyaa?"
Speaking of police state, now I am going to upset you, the Bush and Obama's so oxymoronically named Patriot Act, has made the good ol U.S. of A into a police state, with the President even having the authority to order the murder of U.S. citizens, all he has to do is declare him a terrorist, no due process, no presumption of innocence, no rule of law.
எங்கே ஐயா நீதி?
Dear Y, this is like virginity, you have it, or not. You can't be somewhat pregnant. If Al Walaki does not deserve due process, none of us can expect to have it. If Obama, on his own authority as the president, can put him on a list of people deserving to be murdered, then, U.S. of A is a police state with the president determining who shall live.....I remember of only one US citizen who is in "the terrorist list" who can be killed by US: Al Walaki in Yeman.
Don't we have credible evidence to show that he is helping Al Qaeda to attack US?
If you are, you must be against Obama ordering assassination of US citizens without due process. I am with your children on this, who you say are more to your left.I fully support due process, presumption of innocence and rule of law, as any other citizen.

What is Al Walaki's crime that is not protected by the 1st amendment? Come on Y, you can't have it both ways, take a moment and think about it. I also believe Obama is much better than any of the Republicans, but not enough to make a significant difference on important issues.

can you please explain what this means. not just translation, but what you understand it to be. if you dont mind.
Dear Y, it is not about Al Walaki, it is about rule of law, due process, and everything that a civil society is supposed to hold dear....If you argue that Al Walaki is NOT an Al Qaeda Operative, I am with you 100%. If he is, then my view changes drastically, post 9/11/2001..
Dear Sri. Kunjuppu Ji,
You are too erudite a person for this quote to elude your wisdom and understanding.
I am an ordinary person and no Veda Vyasa.
All that I know is "Virtue is always the Victor and Vice is always vanquished".
To put it in some other versions :
"Righteousness always Reigns supreme"
"Righteousness exalts a nation"
"Truth always Triumphs"
The MK gang were fooling some people all the time and were fooling all the people for some time.
They failed to realize they cannot fool all the people all the time.
There is a saying in Tamil "Pala naal thirudan oru naal pidi paduvaan"
Trust I have been clear enough.
