The Great Sacrifice

Just because I am not getting enough time to post to my heart's content (and make enough bad jokes) doesn't mean that I won't tell you about the great sacrifice:

"The police told me they had never seen anything like this. The reason I've not taken a stand is that these people (his accusers) have families. Harish Dulari (the driver who provided the clinching testimony) makes about Rs 750 a month."

So he'd actually chance going to jail to save the lives of those who put him in?

"That's the way I've been brought up, dude," he responds.

This inordinate slobbering over a pampered blot is terrible. The tone of the whole article is annoying, to say the least. He received bail "because his mother suffered a small heart attack", so what does he do? He goes to the US to rake in some moolah and have a fluff piece by the news agencies documenting his generosity in not taking the stand. Sheesh. Enough already.

Salman.
The poster boy everyone loves to hate.

Envious of his bulging biceps perhaps? :)

Oh! and yes... I can never 'forgive' him for the hit and run in front of the bakery too. I had to go without bread and jam for a whole week because the bakery remained closed. ;)

I don't know why you guys have to give the xxxxx extra mileage & publicity! As far as I'm concerned, he can rot in jail for all his life.

Jaunty, yes, enough. I am wondering if Salman's manager himself didn't write this interview for rediff.

Scipio, I'm forgiving him his shaved chest.

Just Mohit, Sorry. I just thought it was an incredible interview

yes, the article's terrible, isn't it? Notice the way they say 'allegedly' shot - surely if the man's been convicted of it, it's not an allegation but a proven fact.

What I really want to know is - why is this man out of prison. Since when do we start letting convicted felons out of jail because members of their family allegedly have 'heart attacks' (convenient timing that). Salman's right. He is getting an unfair deal. An unfairly good one. By rights he should be languishing in prison. I'm sure the inmates of whatever prison he ends up in will be particularly appreciative of his shirtless physique.
