Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh the showstopper of the hour, the darling of every newsroom, the painful injury of the Olympians, the Bahubali who is unmoved by the national sentiments against him. Let us understand how Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh exposed the 3 pillars of our hard-earned democracy. How did he make a mockery out of a proud nation?
|Judiciary||The courts did not take a Suo Moto when in an interview Mr. Brij Bhushan himself admitted to the fact that he had committed one murder. He was not in any judicial custody, not under the influence of any narcotic substance, nor under any medication that hampers his decision-making. He in his full senses narrated the entire story and also mentioned about witness. He was and is also in power and is totally capable of taking 1 life not just one. He just followed the principles of natural justice and nobody took offence of it.|
|Executive||Cases are registered against him but nobody arrests him to investigate. We see so many IPS & IAS officers on Instagram nowadays talking about their journeys of clearing the exam and facing service challenges. Nobody rose to the occasion when the service demanded their duty.|
|Legislature||Given Patronage by BJP as well as SP from time to time. The political parties that form the legislature accept people who can bring the vote and who are powerful irrespective of their criminal record. Why? Because results matter processes don’t.|
Imagine a hypothetical story of a man/woman who has no connection to anyone and is purely a fictitious personality. A man/woman became popular in his/her 20s and 30s accumulated wealth by doing illegal activities via political patronage. Later he/she understood that people are afraid of him/her and therefore an idea came to his/her mind why not contest elections? After a successful experiment instill more fear in people’s minds and force them to vote for you. If everything goes well make it a family business. Become a part of the legislature and crush anyone who comes across in opposition.
A person in power can influence the executive and without the help of executive justice cannot be imparted. The story is known to all but little did we do to alter the course of this story. Therefore the old adage holds true “History repeats itself”. The recipe is the same only this time the flavor is different. Let us get back to the information that is in the public domain.
The Developed World on the one hand is battling the challenges posed by AI and in India we are battling our own wrestlers.
