Related NewsWritten by Tavleen Singh | Published: June 13 2010 2:14 am Related News Last Sunday when I wrote about the Indian medias reverence for Sonia Gandhi and her familyI had not foreseen that an event would shortly prove me right That event was the judgment on the Bhopal gas tragedy that came soon after my column appeared and incensed public opinion because it amounted to no more than a gentle reprimand for those who had been responsible for the deaths of more than 25000 people It was so shameful a verdict that our news channels went out of their way to hunt down those responsible for the tragedy and the terrible miscarriage of justice We heard from pilots who flew Warren Andersen out of Bhopal in a government aircraftdrivers who drove him aroundofficials who shifted blame and retired officers of the Central Bureau of Investigation who said the Government of India ordered them to let Andersen off the hook When the Congress Partys spokesmen were called to answerthey happily blamed Arjun Singh who was Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh at the time but nobody dared blame Rajiv Gandhi Surely as Prime Minister he was more responsible for letting Andersen go Surely it would have been impossible for Arjun Singh to let him flee the country without the Prime Ministers permission When I tweeted about this I got some support but not a lot because it is not just the media that reveres and forgives our democratically elected royal family but a vast majority of Indians too As a country we have accepted democratic feudalism as our preferred political system So why should it surprise us that something as horrible as the Bhopal gas tragedy should happen and justice not be done for a quarter of a century What does democratic feudalism have to do with what happened in Bhopal Let me explain Feudalism through the ballot box is similar to real feudalism in that as a system it relies on keeping the majority of the populace poor and illiterate The good thing about poor and illiterate people is that they can be relied on not to protest even in the face of horrible injustice Not because they like it that way but because they cannot afford to do anything else More than 4000 people were gassed to death by Union Carbide on December 31984 and our political leaders have behaved as if it were just another industrial accident Worse stillthe victims have accepted this in virtual silence Social activists led a few protest marches but these were sporadic since most victims were too poor to do more than get on with their lives This would be unthinkable in a country that had real democracy and people who were literate enough to understand that their rights as citizens went beyond voting in elections In Indianinety per cent of voters exercise their democratic rights only at election time and then wait for their lives to improve without realising that for real change you need real policies not just a leader who comes from the right family Todaythe roots of democratic feudalism have spread so far and wide that most Indian political parties revolve around personalities and not ideas or ideology Even apolitical observers cannot fail to notice that nearly every political party from Kashmir to Kanyakumari is the property of some family and always there is an heir waiting in the wings Among the heirs in waiting the most powerful is Rahul Gandhi because his inheritance is not Punjab or Tamil Nadu but the whole of India The New York Times pointed out recently that all he has to do is collect his inheritance when he decides that its time He is nice enoughour Rahuland has spent the past few years being trained in politicseconomics and statecraft Soa worthy prince but a prince all the same He will not change the systemno matter what he saysbecause feudalism of any kind needs poor and illiterate people to survive Please notice that he has said not one word about the Bhopal verdict and nor has his Mummy The victims of the tragedy are too desperate and poor to ask for more It is for you and I who know better to recognise that democratic feudalism is the main reason why India remains mired in medieval problems of poverty and monumental injustice Since the verdict I have found myself wondering what Indias reaction would have been if that cloud of poisoned gas had wandered over Lutyens Delhi instead of a wretchedly poor slum on the edge of Bhopal What would Indias reaction have been if among the 25000 dead were senior members of the Indian government Would Warren Andersen have been allowed to run away Would an American company

What is the Nanavati case On April 27 1959 Naval officer Kawas Manekshaw Nanavati shot his wife’s lover Prem Ahuja with his service revolver The case received unprecedented media coverage after which Nanavati accused under section 302 was declared not guilty by the session court However the verdict was dismissed by the Bombay High Court and the case was retried as a bench trial Nanavati was later convicted and sent to life imprisonment under Section 302 of the IPC Share This Article Related Article Backgrounder Nanavati a Parsi man married English-born Sylvia in 1931 They had two sons and a daughter and were settled in Mumbai then Bombay With Nanavati being away most of the time due to his naval assignments Sylvia fell in love with his friend Prem Bhagwandas Ahuja Prem agreed to marry Sylvia provided she divorced her husband However Sylvia came to know that Prem has been involved with many other girls On the day of the crime when Nanavati returned home from one of his assignments she found Sylvia depressed On being questioned Sylvia confessed about the affair to her husband Upset with the confession Nanavati as promised earlier dropped his family at the Metro Cinema for a show but excused himself He went to the Naval base collected his pistol and went straight to Prem Ahuja At Ahuja’s residence Nanavati asked him whether he intended to marry Sylvia and accept their children Prem replied “Will I marry every woman I sleep with” and Nanavati killed him firing three shots says court records KM Nanavati with other officers In court the main argument was on whether Nanavati shot Ahuja in the “heat of the moment” or whether it was a premeditated murder While Nanavti would be charged under culpable homicide with a maximum punishment of 10 years in the former scenario he would be charged with murder in the latter situation the sentence being death or life imprisonment Nanavati pleaded not guilty in court His lawyers argued it as a case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder while the prosecution argued it was premeditated murder Since Nanavati a patriotic person serving the country had no criminal background and he willingly surrendered the Bombay session court pronounced him not guilty under Section 302 The case went to the Bombay High Court which agreed with the prosecution’s argument that the murder was premeditated and sentenced him to life imprisonment for culpable homicide amounting to murder The Supreme Court also upheld the conviction Nanavati however garnered huge support from public the Indian Navy and the Parsi community Rallies were held on Bombay streets demanding pardoning of the convicted officer Prem’s sister Mamie Ahuja was persuaded to forgive Nanavati She gave her assent for his pardon in writing and Nanavati was
