God Sent Judgement
I can’t wait to see what kind of sentence has been awarded by the court to Sanjeev Nanda. I am really happy that he was convicted but most probably the sentence would be appealed in the higher courts.
An excerpt from HT epaper
He’s sankat Mochan (one who wards off trouble), and letting him slip out of your hand in a crisis is neither a good idea nor a good omen. It’s a lesson Sanjeev Nanda will not forget in a hurry. Minutes before he stepped into the court at 12pm, Nanda’s grandmother Gayatri handed him a tiny bronze idol of lord Hanuman. “Apne daye hath ki mutthi mein yeh band rakho aur Hanumanji ko yaad karo beta. Koi khatra nahi hoga,” (hold it tightly in your right fist and pray to Lord Hanuman. No harm will befall you) she told him, hugging him with tears in her eyes.
But Nanda let the idol drop while accepting it. And though he picked it up coolly and strode inside composed, Hanumanji apparently was not amused, judging by the day’s outcome.

Check out the images, Sanjeev with the tilak on his forehead before stepping in the court and Sanjeev without the tilak as he was stepping out, looks like even the God’s are not on his side.
