Love Me, Kill me, Kiss Me, Trash Me

What do you do to a person you suspect of committing a crime as heinous as murder? Inform the police or take the law into your hands? Especially if the suspect is a woman? You tie her to a tree or a lamp post and flog her!!

How's that you ask? Well, this article appeared on the third page of The Hindu print edition dated 26-9-06.

Excerpts from the article

"CHENNAI: A woman from Keezhkottaiyur village was on Monday tied to a lamp-post and beaten up by a group of villagers for the unexplained death of her 10-year-old daughter.
The incident took place in broad daylight on the busy Vandalur-Kelambakkam Road. "
What were the people doing at the time? Jacking off to the sight of people trashing a hapless lady?

The article futher says that

"Police at Thazhambur, however, denied that the woman had been tied to a lamp-post and beaten up. They said a case had been registered over the death and the body sent for post-mortem. Further investigations are on."

Trust the cops deny the flogging ever happened. May be the long arm of the law is busy scratching its balls to care about a woman being humiliated in public. Or maybe the coppers thought that was the time to have some salpetta.

Reminds me of those katta panchayat scenes in Tamil village oriented movies. Dai nattamai, theerpa mathi sollu.

I really do not know why you people conduct CONFERENCES, BLOGCAMPS and UNCONFERENCES!!! I am not able to see a single comment on you people’s Blogs except Kirubashankars and few others.

Is it high time that we should concentrate on Language Blogs where participants are more and representatives are less?

Benny,

Benny-I really do not know why you people conduct CONFERENCES, BLOGCAMPS and UNCONFERENCES!!!

Events like BarCamp and BlogCamp are conducted to spread awareness on blogging, talk about various issues that are popular in the blogosphere and the like. Besides that, such events are a good way of meeting people who are behind the blogs that sit on your blogroll.

That apart, I don't worry that much about people making comments on my blog. I like to write on topics that catch my attention. If people who visit my blog like what I write, they add their feedback. That's their call.

Your comments "I am not able to see a single comment on you people’s Blogs except Kirubashankars and few others."

Is not proper. You can't say people who don't get comments on their blogs are worthy writers. A blog is like a journal. If a person likes an entry, he/she writes a comment, otherwise they move on from one blog to another. There are a lot of blogs that don't get comments that much. What do you have to say about that? Siop blogging?

I am sure there are bloggers involved in this endeavour.
