FEEL like helping Maoist rebels out by setting them up a few bank accounts and passing along a few messages this new year?

Don’t. otherwise you may be forced to seek political asylum, the trickiest of all asylums, like the wife of Mr. Good Guy / Dr. Binayak Sen.

The jailed Indian activist’s wife recently used the English tongue to a height not readily reached by English people themselves and stated that the “only recourse left for [her] is to go to some embassy of a liberal, democratic country and ask for political asylum.”

Even her landlord “in Maharashtra was called up by police and made aware of my antecedents”. The swines!

Amnesty International has yet again elbowed its way in and claimed the reports where manufactured and “unfiar”. BBM wishes they’d do us a favour and manufacture themselves out of every bloody news story.
