The God father.

Expect more such God fathers, as the law and order in the country breaks down.

 1D-5,

Godfathers and Mafias are born when the Judicial system fails.

The problem in India is that we have far too, too many laws and each law is so dense that they end up contradicting some basic laws and ethics.

Good example is the Sec 498-A domestic violence law and there are many more you may agree.

Our entire legal framework has largely failed...

Either we need to have a iron clad rule of law system like USA (with no exceptions, zero tolerance for influence, reccomendation and feudal ideas) or we need a dictatorial rule like China.

Or else, we will slowly become a glorified big version of erstwhile Southern Italy..

Maybe some parts of india are already that..

Sadly that place is known for good climate. Much of India is not so , esp in summer months.

2 D Ramki,

One can equally argue that the creation of draconian laws ( in your case anti-male ) is a dead giveaway of the failure of the judicial system. The 'normal' laws dont work, and powerful groups require these laws.

Incidentally divorce laws are hardly 1% of anti-male attitude of society. For eg., there are thousands more males in jail due to false accusation of rape. Unfortnately, these males have no access to forming powerful groups for themselves.

Godfathers and mafia dons are not the disease. They are a symptom of the breakdown of law and order.

 I hope I don't make people feel wounded, inappropriately. I heard Mr. Thackeray speak to a pretty very respected t. v. news personality, who has been made to perceive that he was being attacked in Mumbai. It seems, Mr. Thackeray was expressing his concern for a person, like my grandmother felt for people. And, this gentleman, associated with news, was aware he himself was Marathi, and he was pretty angry. He couldn't say that he was attacked because of this gentleman, because, I don't think he thought so. I think Mr. Thackeray was speaking about his nephew. He was making the anchor appreciate, and I appreciated very greatly, and humbly, that he was trying to make every effort to reconcile with his nephew. People who can feel like this, it is pretty tragic, that others feel they are making other people imagine that they should kill. No one feels, when they see their maternal grandmothers talk to others, that they are feeling anything but goodwill. I did feel, and do feel the same way, about a person who is supposed to be an Avatar, in Bengal. The Avatar saw himself as a handmaiden to the Goddess Kali.
