On 25/1/2011, Yashwant Sonawane, Additional District Collector of Malegaon, was burnt to death by oil mafia criminals in Panewadi, near Manmad in Nashik District. The death could have been avoided if India had death penalty for every murder and had hanged all who were sentenced to death. Every death penalty prevents three to eighteen murders as proved in an article in Newsweek some years back.

There are evil people who call themselves human rights activists and oppose death penalty. For them murderers are human beings, victims are not.

Since 1980, as per Supreme Court judgment, death penalty is given in rarest of rare case. On 21/1/2011 Supreme Court did not award death penalty to Dara Singh who had burnt to death Graham Staines, Philip Staines and Timothy Staines on the night of 22-23 January 1999 as per CBI appeal but upheld life sentence awarded by Orissa High Court which had overruled the lower court that had awarded death penalty. Arnab Goswami of Times Now said if this is not a rarest of rare case I do not know what a rarest of rare case is. Four days later Yashwant Sonawane was burnt to death.

Few people who have been sentenced to death over the years have not been hanged as presidents of India after Shankar Dayal Sharma have refused to reject mercy petitions except in one case by A. P. J. Abdul Kalam. Pratibha Patil has refused to reject mercy petitions even when the murderer has murdered a dozen or more people including children. Murderers in India have lost fear and commit murders openly. They know they don’t have to pay with their lives for murder.

India hosts Cricket Word Cup 2011. If India wins it will make history.

No host country has won Cricket Word Cup. Sri Lanka was a co-host country that played semi-final and final outside Sri Lanka in 1996. India hosted Cricket Word Cup in 1987 and 1996. Both times it lost in semi-finals. Some say Indian cricketers were told to lose the semi-final in 1996 to avoid playing final in Pakistan. If that is the case the cricketers who played that semi-final should go public about who told them to lose the match. There was bottle throwing during the match and when match referee Clive Lloyd called off the match and awarded it to Sri Lanka India were eight wickets down and Vinod Kambli who was batting wanted to continue the match, pleaded with Clive Lloyd, and was in tears when the match was awarded to Sri Lanka.

No host country except England in 1979 has reached the final in Cricket Word Cup. India, Australia, Pakistan, South Africa and West Indies did not reach finals as hosts.

Some people want law against marital rape which is an oxymoron. Husband and wife belong to each other and they have rights and duties towards each other. A woman who does not want to have sex with her husband should separate from him and file for divorce. If a woman files for divorce the judge shall not ask the woman to reconsider her decision. If the judge asks the woman to reconsider her decision the woman shall stand firm in her resolve for divorce. In one case judge asked the woman to reconsider her decision, the woman went back to her husband, the husband murdered her.

What next after law against marital rape? Law against marital sexual harassment?
