An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Indian Supreme Court plays Agony Aunt

Bibi joh boltee hai woh sunno (listen to whatever your wife says), as otherwise it could land you in trouble. Because if you do not listen to her, you will suffer the consequences. If your wife asks you to put your face that side, put it that side. If she says, put it this side, then put it this side. Otherwise you will face trouble. Hum sub bhogi hai (we are all sufferers).

A typical discourse from your neighborhood Agony Aunt.. right? WRONG! Well.. this is the advise from India’s Apex Court .. the Indian Supreme Court. An Air Force official Deepak Kumar recently filed a suit against his estranged wife Manisha, who Kumar said had ruined him and his family and also implicated all of them in various cases including that of sodomy.

The vacation bench of justices Markandeya Katju and Deepak Verma made these extremely intelligent and sympathetic remarks to a Defense Officer already hurt by the cruelty of his wife.

Even though it is a vacation bench and the top judges are in holiday mood, yet, isn’t playing Agony Aunt a little beyond its “brief”?
