No bail for Pat

The court has turned down Pataudi's anticipatory bail plea.
Elsewhere, the Bishnois are threatening a stir if Pataudi and the others involved are not arrested.
A very simple tribe, the Bishnois, with the naive, rustic simplicity of those who live lives untouched by 'civilization' as we know it. I'd spent some time with them, covering the Rajasthan election one time.
My impression was that they prize their land, their village and its elders, and their deities; they ask nothing more than to be left to lead their lives their way; they don't come across as people who are easily stirred -- but they do revere the black buck, and hate poachers.
Given that, their threatened stir could well add a new dimension to the problems Pat and the others are facing now.

  • Do you really belive that it would add anything new? Personally, I am a tad bit appreehensive. Didnt they do the same thing during the Salman Khan episode? What happened? Heck the guy is walking the streets after manslaughter!!!Don't want to start ...

  • In India rich can get away with murder - both literally and otherwise. It's disgusting.

  • The rich get away with murder everywhere. Check OJ or Michael Jackson. Its good to see people like Kozlowski go to prison.

  • Hope they turn the corner this time and prosecute Tiger for this. That should set an example for others like Salman.

    My take is that, like all other issues, this will too die a slow death and everyone would forget about it and then Tiger will then be a free bird... Pathetic.
