Enna Kanraavi Idhu! (What an ugly news story!)
Just read a news item in an Indian paper that a judge in Rajasthan gave parole for 15 days to a guy who serves life imprisonment in jail. Reason: He should be with his wife and make her pregnant. This is in response to his wife’s petition in the high court that she has a right to have a baby and therefore her husband should be released. The judge agrees and gave a 15-day parole.
Since I have nothing else to do, my thoughts went in different directions.
What if the convict appeals to the judge that he cannot finish the “job” in 15 days and therefore need an extension of parole for another 6 months.?
What if that child files a case that he/she misses his/her daddy (who is in jail) and should be released? Or, he files a case to be with his daddy in jail and therefore the jailer should start a school for the child.
What if the wife petitions the court that she has a right to have a second baby and therefor her husband’s parole should be extended indefinitely?
What if she says she cannot raise the kid/s alone and as per law both parents should have responsibility to raise the kids and therefore her husband’s bail should be extended until the kid/s are 18 years old.
This is called new interpretation. The judge should be given a gold medal.
