In India, even God is helpless, says SC

SC-Even God will not be able to save this country:


"Even God will not be able to save this country," a fuming Supreme Court recently said while slamming the government for its refusal to amend the law for launching criminal prosecution against those who illegally occupy official houses.

We are fed up with this government," the apex court said, adding "They don't have the guts to differ with the opinion of the clerks."

"Even God will not be able to save this country. In India even if God comes down he cannot change our country. Our country's character has gone. We are helpless," a bench of Justices B N Aggrawal and G S Singhvi observed.

Are the remarks apt in the present scenario.

Dear all esteemed members,

I think the remarks made by SC Judges shows the hidden anger, agony and anguish in their mind. People irrespective of their position and status whether they are Ministers, Officials, MPs ,MLAs etc have to vacate the official bugalows as they are not their property. Once their tenure ends , they should honestly vacate the official residences that have been provided to them. Unfortunately in our country , the concept of probity and honesty in public life have either become a million dollar question or forgotten words or unrealisable dreams especially for the political class. As the above referred class of people being the dominant /influencial section of the society, they should set example by voluntarily vacating the official bungalows provided by the government. Men in public life have to lead from the front. They should be a great role models for the younger generation to follow.  Can't  these policy makers, politicans and buearacrates set some positive benchmarks for probity in public life in India ?. These rotten eggs cannot set such great examples , because , they are all greedy and self-centered. I am not accusing all the men in public life. It is basically a question mind set, no one knows when will these people chage themselves ? They don't accept the raelity that they are going to lose everything they posses presently. Even in the present scenario, there are people who still practice honesty and probity in public life. I would like the general public to take the remarks of the Supreme Court Judges in a positive way.

With warm regards.

The comment of the apex court shows the actual character of the Govt. and the politics of thìs country.It needs wide publicity so that people may see the ugly faces of the Govt. and of their representatives.

The remarks of supreme court have forced us to amend our ways to prevent our nation from disaster

While arguing a bail before a judge , the Advocate said ' My lord , the applicant is a respectable member a the society and then he went on to state the political post of that applicant eg. President of Blah Blah etc. - to this the judge said it is not a qualification but a disqualification. Persons on such posts should all the more be careful of thier behavior and set an example.




In another matter , a judge said ' Persons working in the revenue department are only capable of generating revenue for themselves.


Nani Palkhiwala visited our college [ symbiosis - Pune] and in his lecture stated ' we live in the times in which the greatness of a man depends upon his capacity of breaking laws"

Politicians with morals have long gone with the wind.

They made that remark in the context of change of the country's charecter - and commented even God cannot change and that they are helpless.... only in respect of changing the charecter of the country (Nation) - Their express of inability is not on the issue on hand - certainly they can vacate the illegal occupations but the concern here is mainly pointed to the detoriating standards of morals and charecter.  This general remark is only the indication of how bad the Nation is going astray.
