For, honest people like Satyendra Dubey and Manju Nathan paid the price for it - they died. Or rather, they were brutally murdered. What you see in the movies, and what our puranas say, and the tales our grandmothers told us - everything is a sham; a lie. In India, only MIGHT matters. Good does not win over evil in India, as these untimely deaths show us. And we aspire to be a superpower. Wah!
It is sad that the media has not taken up the case of this young IIML graduate, who chose to work with IOC instead of a multinational and paid for it with his life. And to those 'intellectuals' who complain about bran-drain, I have just this to say: SCREW YOU. If you cannot, at the very minimum, guarantee the personal safety of honest officials working in the public sector, do not even open your mouth to talk about brain-drain. I, and thousands of others, wouldn't be caught dead working in the Indian public sector, and you have no right to point fingers at us. Especially after this.
Gaurav has a poignant post about his senior here.
Rashmi has a brief tribute here.
DesiPundit reports that Mridula has compiled a list of links paying tribute to Manju Nathan. It is indeed an thoroughgoing list.
