Where there is a will...

This news has just reached my ears
After a hundred and seventy-three years
A case may be nearing
Final round of court hearing
Let’s toast this ‘swift justice’ - three cheers!

Kolkata, India (Reuters 30/03/06) - An Indian court is set to reopen the country's oldest pending case 173 years after it was first lodged in the eastern city of Calcutta, then the administrative and commercial capital of British colonial rule. Get the story here

    Your toast and three cheers
    confirm my worst fears
    of justice delayed, justice denied
    and thus my heart cried
    for cases languishing for years.

  2. Hi Padmaja, welcome to my blog!
    Good one!
