Indian cabinet minister blesses child marriage!
Another jerk.

From Rediff: A complaint case was filed against
Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Kanti Singh, for
allegedly having attended a 'child marriage' at the residence of a senior Rohtas
district official.

Ravishanker Raj, Bihar unit general secretary of Janata
Dal (U), filed a case against Singh, sub-divisional officer of Bikramganj in
Rohtas district, Mahipal Singh Yadav, district development commisioner Bhaglu
Rajak and others in the court of Bikramganj sub-divisional judicial magistrate,
Pandey Vijay Prakash Narain, accusing them of promoting child marriage in
violation of the Child Marriage (Prevention) act, 1929.

Kanti Singh is alleged to have blessed the couple --
Pinki Kumari (14) and Ashok Kumar Giri (15) -- after their marriage was
solemnised on December 12.

Jayendra Saraswati - hero, villain or just average?

I can't make up my mind on this one.

The police cannot be stupid enough to arrest the Shankaracharya Jayesndra Saraswati unless they were sure they could nail him on this.

Does Jayendra Saraswati have a motive? There is a motive definitely, but how strong is it? Shankararaman could have been just a thorn in the flesh, or he could have been a major threat - we don't know.

If Outlook is right when it comes to the suspicious activities of Jayendra Saraswati and the junior pontiff, then yes, there is definitely a motive. On the other hand, has OUtlook been just fed select data by the Tamil Nadu police? I don't know the answer to that one.

Why is the BJP so taken in by the Shankaracharya? It would have been politically prudent to wait and see which way the investigation goes before they threw in their lot with him. On the other hand, they seem to be not pushing the point even though parliament is in session now.

Wait and watch.

Baazee CEO arrested - Indian law gone nuts

Baazee.com's CEO Avnish Bajaj was arrested yesterday, and today the court has ordered that he be kept in judicial custody for a period of 14 days.

Nuts I say.

I do not know the letter of the law, but I do know that it is virtually impossible for a baazee.com or anyone else to ensure that some of the users do not break the law. Arresting the CEO and interrogating him on what - whether he was there when that twit of boy received oral sex and he filmed it and put it on his own portal? Police needs to interrogate him, it seems. There is nothing they can get out him that they can't get on the phone, I say.

But then Indian police is stupid, and pretty much illiterate except for some notable exceptions.
