The Government of India proposes some changes in rape laws. They include having a woman judge, woman prosecutor and a woman police officer for rape cases. This may not help and be counter-productive. In Bombay, judge Laxmi Rao, a woman judge, punished a woman judge for rape for having sex with a minor though there is no provision for punishing a woman for rape, and let off men convicted of rape lightly. One was just sentenced to imprisonment till the sitting of the court on that day. There was an outcry against her judgments and she was transferred.

Sensex has come below 10000. Some months back when it reached 7000 some analysts had warned about the dangers. There was a debate on Big Fight on NDTV 24×7. One person said we have to be cautious. Another person was euphoric. He said it would reach 25000. Sensex crossed 12000 and was very close to 13000 and then the decline began. FIIs were responsible for the boom and the doom.

Blasphemy Law is not desirable. Christians sentenced to death in Pakistan.

Films certified by CBFC should not be banned. Scenes should not be cut in adult films shown on television.

Rahul is an independent candidate for Rajya Sabha supported by the BJP. They wanted Rahul Mahajan. That did not happen. They support Rahul Bajaj. The name is same though the surname is different.

Marriage is a union of a man and a woman. Judges in USA have crossed their limits in allowing same sex marriages and then striking down laws that define marriage as a union of a man and a woman. USA should have retirement age for judges. In Terry Schiavo case members of Congress assembled on a Sunday and passed a law to save her life. Yet first one judge and then other judges did not allow her to live. It was murder. The judges who did not allow her to live must be tried for murder and sentenced to death.
