Cry, Ashok Khemka, and drown India in your tears...

What does it say of India that honest men in civil services - like Ashok Khemka - should receive death threats merely because in upholding the due process of law? And that he should be accused of 'scandalous' conduct for spiking an irregularity.

charitable school.

What does it say of India if a senior Supreme Court lawyer does not find the egregious influence-peddling by the son-in-law of so powerful a person as Sonia Gandhi to be "scandalous", but finds the action of an IAS officer - who is merely upholding the due process of law by cancelling an illegitimate order - to be "scandalous"?

What does it say of India if people in politics (and on the periphery) have become so drunk on their power that they will go to any lengths to cover up what is rapidly being shown up to be an open-and-shut case of influence-peddling and corruption leading right up to the gates of 10 Janpath?

What does it say of India that honest men in civil services - who are so rare to find in the first place - should receive death threats merely because in upholding the due process of law, they refocussed public attention on the shadowy real estate dealings of hollow men like Vadra and institutions like DLF?

What does it say of India if men like Ashok Khemka are reduced to tears on primetime television for just doing the right thing?

Cry, Ashok Khemka, and drown India in your tears. This blessed country that has fallen into venal and corrupt leadership desperately needs to undergo a ritual purification exercise. Not even your tears may cleanse it of its corrupt impurities, but for now that's all we have going for us: the honest tears of an upright man...
