Slap In The Face: Need for Vijay Nagar Empire Law
Slap in the Face (Satire)
Harvinder Singh was mad enough to take some action. He slapped Sharad Pawar, whom he thought to be corrupt. In current legal structure the action is illegal. You cannot slap a corrupt person. He has rights. Poor Indian children may die of starvation due to rampant corruption. But that is, however, perfectly legal.
It was not always so. It was common law that the corrupt were hung on poles at city squares in India. This law was followed meticulously in Vijaynagar Empire in Southern India. It was golden age of India. The corrupt still had rights: right to be hung on the nearest pole. Interestingly the officer who appointed the corrupt person was also hung by his side. Just to ensure that one does not appoint a corrupt person to a public office. This made Vijaynagar Empire, and India, the richest nation in the world at that time. The average Indian was happy, content and rich. Times were good and arts, agriculture, trade, industry and exports thrived. People were nice and gentle to each other. Children did not die of starvation.
