Crime-Manu Sharma

Is there a lesson to be learnt in Manu Sharma parole episode? Yes, there is. Don’t enter into any criminal activity if you are not Manu Sharma. If an ordinary mortal like you and me, ever gets into a fight with his neighbor and arrested, God help him. But, if you are Manu Sharma, you can get away with murder. Manu Sharma almost did. He was acquitted in 2003. It was only after tremendous public outcry, Manu got life imprisonment, of course with all possible comforts he would have in his own house.

Life imprisonment? Manu laughs. There is always parole. One month’s parole extended to two months, enjoying night club parties and if he did not have altercations and scuffle with another top lad, his parole would have extended further.

Meanwhile, his ailing mother, reason of his parole, happily moving around in her circles, enjoying her high status and merrily making some public announcements, all under the watchful eyes of the law, always sure of the invincibility of her family.

In short, there is a lesson to be learnt, if you want to indulge yourself in crime, first be rich and influential. How you become rich is not important. Just be rich, be Manu Sharma. End justifies means. Once you do that, once you are Manu Sharma, indulge yourself in any in any activity you like, criminal or otherwise. Every time there won’t be public outcry. And even if there is, you can expect help from top class lawyers, you can expect the trial to linger for life. After years of trial if you are sentenced, there is always parole. If you are Manu Sharma, you can replace yourself with a substitute after sometime. The condition is: you have to be Manu Sharma.

In long and short: The trial is long and punishment is short. So enjoy your crime and shoot whom you like.
