Law-less-ness ?!


Today, State and law-enforcement agencies bear the greatest part of the blame. The basic function of the police is to implement the law without fear or favour, a duty now observed in the breach. 

Fifty years ago, those cyclists who rode ‘double-sawari’, or had no headlamp at night, were so frightened of the police that they would dismount and push the cycle far past a policeman before remounting.

Today, three astride a motorcycle, going in the wrong direction up a one-way street thumb their noses at the traffic sergeant.
