Smuggest!

I know it isn't a word, but wasn't SPS Rathore's smile after he exited the CBI court just the smuggest thing you've ever seen. It reminded me of the smile we had when we left the headmaster's room in middle school after being sent there, guilty as hell, but only getting a 'warning'. That said, usually Br. Gaffney used to take his cane out and warm our backsides so our smug smiles were larger because we knew just how bad things could be. More likely, this is the same smile a child has after being caught with candy and getting away with it. Rathore has been proven guilty but got away with a slap on his wrist and if it wasn't for the few photographers who took that picture of him, I doubt the rush to send the man to jail would have taken place.
Just my two cents on the issue, but the fct remains that Rathore is a scumbag who deserves to go to jail. It is a pity that it takes a media campaign to send him to jail. Justice in India is a rather strange thing, no?

Same smug smile as the traffic cop at VT, Mumbai, who said "As You Wish" to my driver, ostensibly jumped a traffic signal nobody else could see. But to your query on does it need a media campaign, well, why not, whatever works?

Though I also know of other cases where false charges of rape or other crimes are slapped on people.

Justice is strange in India? Study law part-time and get a better view!!

ToI has now taken it upon itself to bring peace and amity between Pakistan and India. It has to start from its own house. It will have to sack/restrain Arnab Goswami if it is serious in its latest campaign. You can't walk with hare and hunt with fox.

rathore, john fernandes, the chap who murdered jessica lal and was spotted clubbing on parole, arushi talwar's murderer, kasab, 3 idiots who escaped delhi police custody, churchill club footballers. this country is a haven for all criminals. see how loudly we scream when 2 indians are killed overseas by god knows who (could be by our very own countrymen, the case is still under investigation) and no one speaks up for the thousands who die daily over here. where is the media frenzy when UP govt asks for 10 crores to help the destitute with blankets (195 are dead of cold in UP) after mayawati spent 350 crores on her own statues. where is the media spotlight when teenagers are kidnapping and then finally murdering their own classmates for ransom. who said a word when women are raped by many in moving cars in broad daylight. please, we are a nation of conniving, murdering, raping, cheating, corrupt monsters. only we have this divine right to maim and kill our countrymen, not foreigners! the cowardly govt has issued an advisory to indian students abroad, what about an advisory to indians living in india?

I totally agree he is a scumbag but I believe he came in to light because of his smug smile. Moral of the story never ever give smug smile in front of media that can be dangerous.

Yes that smug smile is certainly annoying and Rathore is a scumbag..but as the days go by I'm also somewhat piqued at the media blitzkrieg that has made Ruchika's schoolmate the 'face' of justice..As a witness, I think it's wise for her to shut that trap and lie low till the court and not the media takes a final decision..there's a point beyond which 'great' newsmakers start sounding like media wh***s
