    Raju’s penalty shows how poor and light hearted the country’s judicial system is. The system is not going to reform any body at all. For a confidence trickster like Raju, Sahara and Mallya, the country still gives a casual penalty. In China they could have been hanged with out a second hearing.Only in India all kinds of freedom is given to all kinds of cheats and robbers and corrupt bankers and cricket association bosses. The country does not stand a single chance for betterment, Modi or no Modi. All of theses politicians are mere puppets in the hands of the rich businessmen. Who cares for the honest man except for cleaning their toilets and sweeping the streets once in a year for TV cameras and erecting statues for the dead leaders.
