Excerpt From a Letter from a reader in the Mailbox of The Times of India dated July 17, 2012:
....We live in a country of barbarians who have no fear of law or respect for civility. The culprits are the authorities who are callous and nasty. The recent incident in Assam is said to be of a jilted goon who has the patronage of the powers that be The farce of a few arrests is laughable. It is just a re-enactment of the charades we have witnessed against parents who kill children for honour and members of organisations who strip girls in the open. The latest Taliban-type diktat against women in UP is another case in point. The root cause of the malaise is politicians who do not move even their little finger for fear of antagonising vote banks. - Mukund Kumar, Mumbai
