Killing fields take one more

Every city and country has its share of cheats who prefer to bleed people to death than do an honest day’s work.

But in some cities, being honest is rewarded with death. The problem in India as I see it, is that it is hard to be honest and true to your conscience without risking one’s career or family – and in this case – one’s own life.

Gaurav Sabnis writes about Manjunath Shanmugham , a man who was killed for doing his job. Comparisons and parallels to the case of Satyendra Dubey are inevitable. What really gets me – is that this news is not shocking, and that we can go on with what we are doing with an air of fatality. Nope. Nothing shocks us anymore. We’ve gone on to believe that being honest is an aberration. And that sounds like the death of more than just one person.
