Death Penalty

Decide on a date and time. Organize for a hangman. Measure the thickness of the rope. Find a place that sells the rope. Take an object that weighs the same as the human being. Tie the object to the noose and pull the lever. Be content that it serves the purpose, maybe smile.

Ask the person if he/she has any last request. Arrange for a bath/shave/food. Walk the person to the noose and hang the person. Get a doctor to certify the person is dead.

Doesn't the above sound as if it is pre meditated murder?

If death is the penalty for crimes, what should be the punishment for the state?

I am not for a minute condoning the actions of a murderer or a rapist or anyone who has committed crime. They need to be punished and there is no doubt on that. Is death penalty the answer and should it continue in a civilized society?

நானே நானா யாரோ தானா, மெல்ல மெல்ல மாறினேனா

Can talking be an effort, thinking be painful, connecting with people - numbing ... welcome silence

Broken record

கண்ணுக்கு குலம் ஏது, கருணைக்கு இனம் ஏது .... தருபவன் இல்லையோ கண்ணா நீ

Song loop

அழகிய மிதிலை நகரினிலே யாருக்கு ஜானகி காத்திருந்தாள் .....

Reading old comments (I am saying comments on purpose) brought back a lot of memories of people with whom I had connected with.  Wish all of them had continued to blog ...

When in deep in thought asking the unanswered question "who am I", there is a fleeting glimpse of nothingness. It is so fleeting that it becomes impossible to concentrate and prolong that any further.
