Why wishes come true? We are not used to it.

Last fortnight saw the human sea trying to flow on to the streets of New Delhi (Lutyen’s Zone at Delhi) with candles demanding death for the rapists. Many other cities across the country echoed demands of justice. Presently rape is not punishable by death but murder is. Under the provisions of Constitution the penal law can not be applied retrospectively. Hence the demand of agitators could not have been met without a charge of murder.
Unfortunately the wish of agitators has been granted. Worst part is that victim is no more. With her death it is a murder with brutality which is rare. Courts will determine if it was rare of rarest to impose punishment of death.
Why such wish come true at this cost? May be we do not deserve that our every wish should come true.
The predators could spend their lives in jail. Victim must have survived, somehow; in spite of all the injuries. Perhaps our desire for revenge out weighed our desire for the victim to survive. Who knows how desires or wishes work?
Every death is tragic but at such a young age and in such tragic circumstances, it takes away something from everybody.
It took away the faith of people in police, medicine and governance.
Let the bereaved family may find peace and courage to get over most horrific and tragic circumstances.
