Finally Relaxed !

After a long hard term at work,
I am finally off the load

I get a vacation, I get to go home.


I get to relax, and meet the ones I love

But in a few weeks time, it is back to now
More work, and more home sickness
And lying in wait for my next vacation

---------------------------------------------------------

There was a news item that was forwarded to me. It talks about the barbaric system of stoning a woman to death for what is judged as a sin/crime by the law.

http://womensphere.wordpress.com/2010/07/04/call-on-the-government-of-iran-to-stop-the-imminent-execution-of-sakineh-mohammadi-ashtiani-sentenced-to-death-by-stoning/

I am planning to write an article on this in my next post. How can the law decide that adultery's punishment is stoning to death. Would they do the same if the adultery perpetrator was a man ? even if adultery cannot be condoned, do we have the right to take a life ?

Hi, Deepa! My heart goes out to women who live in such conditions. You ask a very valid question about the double-standard between men and women.

Sad state ! Some of the muslim laws are really barbaric ! :(

Deeps said...

This is gruesome to say the least..no we have no right to take anybody's life.

Will look forward to reading your post, Deepa.

Sorcerer said...

Hmm...Barbaric laws..are still practiced in this nuclear age..
Can you believe it?

It's irony that one end the state wants to compete with the rest of the world in technology and economy get par with the western and eastern counterparts..and on the other end..it fails abolish pre historic(Cave man era) practices.

Btw, Happy vacation and..yeah..me too taking a monsoon break and going on a trek in the wilds of silent valley!!
Then binge on some home cooked food for few days!

It's amazing to disconnect oneself and reboot LIFE!

Enjoy madi!!

I assume that it is a creation and you are not actually taking a vacation. If you are that is good, but the creation is nice. Holds true for almost everyone.

Most of the adultery stonings I have read involved killing of both the sexes. It is sad that no human rights commission can do something to stop such brutal acts.

Hey Deepa!
You're finally back! Hope you had a grand time.
Rubbish....had to undergo surgery. Was out of commission for a month! All well now!
Funny how a new set of challenges makes what seemed insurmountable, not too long ago, appear absolutely trivial in their significance!
Talk about putting things in perspective!
Reading a book called The Noticer by Andy Andrews which is all about how a slight change in perspective can make all the difference.Awesome read!
Take care.

Thank you for the concern and encouraging words on my post. They do mean something to me. In another avatar, a long time ago, we knew each other, so I had to say hello :)

Shas said...

Can't we put an end to such barbaric laws. I would like to know what punishment is given to an adulterous man. Waiting to hear views on it.
