Today will be third day when Rhea Chakraverty (Chakroborty) will be visiting the office of Narcotic Control Bureau for investigation. Yesterday she came prepared for arrest with a suit case which carried herself into the office but she was disappointed and more so public is disappointed and every one is asking why she was not arrested?
Why arrest a person?
Arrest of a person is not a matter of punishment. Arrest during investigation is made to conduct custodial interrogation. It is used to assess the emotionally charged person and make him or her realize the vulnerability of situation and tell the truth. Actually this makes all the more reason to arrest Rhea Chakraverty and make her confess truth. Right? Actually it is not so simple. She is co-operating and answering all the questions and that makes her an obedient citizen. There may be many more legal reasons not to arrest but those can be read here in my book on Criminal Law in India. But here we are concerned with a practical problem arising due to personality of Rhea Chakraverty.
Let’s go deeper into the background of Rhea Chakraverty. She was born in 1992 in Bangaluru. Thus she is barely 28 years of age. It is not an age when one becomes CEO of a large corporation much less a conglomerate of Drug Mafia, as is being alleged by media. She is just an average young girl.
So what is special about Rhea Chakraverty?
Have you seen any movie of Rhea? I have not seen any movie but I would encourage every one to watch and see why every movie of her failed. She is a good looking girl. She wears fancy cloth. She has dress sense to wear hoodie yesterday to visit the office of NCB. She is said to have worked in eight movies. Though none was successful.
Why her movies bombed at box office?
This question is very important. The reason she is not being arrested is the same reason her movies were not successful.
Mumbai is not just home of Hindi Cinema but also crime especially the high end drugs. While it makes movies like “Flying Punjab” to show drug problem in Punjab but it simply ignores the massive drug problems in Mumbai’s high society which involve high end drugs like cocaine and MDMA etc.
Sushant’s family lawyer had already questioned the autopsy report and had claimed that it is “pretty disturbing that the report says nothing was found in the stomach.” The cover-up by police and doctors is so obvious. But who managed all this?
This is a book in non-fiction category and is claimed to be a chronicle of underworld criminals in Bombay/Mumbai. While writing style and language is good yet I could not continue beyond 50 pages. The book resembled more to criminal gossip magazines which base their stories on versions of police or complaints to police. However in this book that reference is also missing. Continue reading →
Gardening as a subject and as a hobby happens to be least popular. May be too plebeian. It also requires a regular commitment. Living in apartments amidst an ocean of polluting fumes, eclipsed in the nave of concrete jungle, we often do not miss the plants. Last year when I was in Bombay on several occasions, another congested and populous city, I realised how hideously un-green that city is. Air filled with sea moisture and obnoxious smells typical of closed places. Back in Delhi, I was glad that it looked like a big garden with roads. The pollution here seemed non-existent notwithstanding the fact that 20% of the city population has symptoms of asthma, at one time or another.
Coming back to gardening, it is awful that schools that waste so much time on science projects, laboratory experiments and cramming benefits of trees for environment besides moral science, show nothing about gardening. Continue reading →
