And the piling queries ..

A very well thought set of questions by asomeone on the blog article I wrote about @rajanleaks vs @chinmayi

I have no say in what was spoken between the two groups and what the real issue is...But what bothers me most in this case is 

1. Why has Cyber Crime been so involved in this when there have been multiple cases filed and thrown away to the dustbin?

2. Why was the arrest done so well planned to be before public holidays? This isn't a terrorist activity to be kept for so many days to investigate.

3. If one side wanted to ensure that a case is filed and they expect justice from court, why is one side of equation keep on getting their stance clarified through media while the others have been refrained from doing so?

4. Why has the media not been able to expose what is the real complaint and what are the evidences presented?

5. Who is giving these statements of sexual torture to the media while the accusing party is claiming they did not?

6. Why has a bail not been given in this case even after two days of court functioning? who is preventing this?

7. If an elderly lady has been considered to have been offended with derogatory sly remarks , can we substitute "bloody !#@$!#%!#%" said by one side and substitute with "bas****" and consider they have used derogatory terms against the other side?

8. Have the jailed party families have a complaint copy yet? Have they been informed or did they find from media? Why is the media ignoring this so blatantly?

9. What happened to the case filed by a new group against the accusing party?

Even if they have committed wrong (need to wait to see what the courts say), treating the way these ordinary people who have no power, money or influence been treated, stands tall to the fact that there are really only two classes of people - Oppressed and Oppressors.

And to add on from my point of view,

From what I heard from the friends, 

1. Prior to all these issues spiralling out of control, several mediators from twitter have gotten in touch with chinmayi and her mother to apologize for the sly remarks which were inappropriately made from their side. In spite of various attempts, they didn't accept the apologies made both in person and on paper by both @rajanleaks and @sharankay in the commissioner's office and still were summoned and been put behind bars for the past 6 days now.

2. All the newspapers were contacted prior these events and a personal plea was made by a group representing twitter and all the twitter handles, chinmayi had complained about, so that their photographs would be refrained from publishing. In spite of repeated requests, their photographs have been promulgated. 

My question is that, there are perverts who molests children, rapists and murderers who goes unnoticed from the public eyes and all of them just become one amongst the very many faceless and nameless criminals in the society and all that reaches the public is a small column hidden behind the bold advertisements. SO WHY WERE THESE MEN TARGETED SPECIFICALLY? 

3. If derogatory comments were made and If it is justice everyone needs, why haven't the police and men of justice acted upon @meenakandasamy petition, while she was openly threatened that she will be gang raped and had endured much more denigrating comments?

4. If these men lose their jobs for an issue like this and are razed down, can chinmayi be sued on court based on human rights act for all the humility and stress these people and their family have undergone?

Chinmayi still keeps portraying herself as the victim here and acting all innocent while in actual fact she is proving to be more and more mendacious..

Acrid Revenge - A letter to chinmayi!!!

Dearest Chinmayi,

            Let me introduce myself first... I am a Doctor working in UK currently, mother of a 10 year old boy, daughter of a widowed mom and belong to scheduled caste. Life has never been fair but I am handling it the best I can, in raising my kid. I have been a fan of your talents for ages. I think I followed you since you participated in the talent show in Sun TV. I have the utmost respect for you and your mom & I have enjoyed all your songs, your performances, your blog, articles about you as an young entrepreneur, and of course the infamous twitter....

            I am one among the many, who came to twitter to meet people with like mind & sharp tongue & to hear the thought that reverberates from civilians with great creative minds belonging to different walks of life. I was thrilled and got sucked into it. It opened up multiple windows into people’s world. I have met great people, not so great people in this journey and I have made really good friends. We do have our difference of opinions but Twitter felt like college. You fight, you make up, you are pulled down, you laugh, you are surprised and you are ragged so on and so forth.

            In the past one year, your conversations have stirred so much of conflict, which rather reflects your basic understanding of life and your opinion about the political problems that we face. End of the day, everyone is entitled to make and have their own opinions. As far as one’s opinion and expression is not vindictive and abrasive, one can get away with everything...

            And now your name is all over the media for the past couple of weeks which has plastered & portrayed that Chinmayi is a poor victim of sexual harassment from these social sites and she is been showered with verbal abuse, derogatory comments and that your life has been endangered. For people who are not acquainted to the social media like twitter and face book, they would be just flabbergasted with these news. Since there are a few who have followed all the conversations that has flown back and forth between you and the rest of the others, you cannot really stand up and say that you are just a victim here!!! So, Please sell your story elsewhere!!!

            Are you really just a victim??? Where have your tweets disappeared? All the way through, you have said inappropriate retorts against the fisherman, people belonging to my caste but you have weaselled out big style and just deleted your tweets!!! But girl, if you are so filled with righteousness, why this conniving scheme??? You have retorted for every single tweet that came your way!! I was kinda proud of you, as you at least had the guts to stand up to what you thought was right!! But I don’t know why you had to go and delete every single one of your tweets that caused such angst and belligerence amongst people. Is it because people would get the real true picture of what actually happened, if you had had left your tweets??

            Being a woman, we are under constant scrutiny all through our life. And being in a massive field like movie industry, which is constantly under public surveillance, does put people like you under constant pressure. I totally get that and I appreciate your effort. I know that you are not answerable to me, but to a society which you are feeding false information to. NOT everything you have told them is true now, is it??

            I have known the twitter handles you have quoted to the police for the past 3 years now. Neither me nor the other so many woman who are on twitter, have had any trouble with the guys you have quoted. There have been plenty of arguments, which are meant arise when there is difference of opinions. But nothing crass, nothing boorish from anyone of these men. And top of that, you probably have the most people in the ignore list in twitter anyways and probably more ignored compared to your followers.

            I have personally known @rajanleaks for the past 2 years and he is a really sharp witted humble person, a responsible adult, a loving husband & very devoted father of baby girl, who has risen to this position through sheer hard work and no family to support him. He has fought all through his life and all he had to share to this world was his quirky sense of humour. I can vouch for him and so can many other friends (which include woman, FYI)!!! I have similar stance on all the twitter handles like @senthlchn @vivaji and many others you have shared as well. All these people are simple civilians!!!

The only reason your paths collided was your insensitive tweets regarding Tamilnadu fishermen who were killed right left and central for no fault of theirs and similar such retorts about other issues related to caste etc. Probably your tweet meant that way, because you didn’t quite understand the gravity of the situation. I don’t blame you, because this is beyond you and not every civilian is been informed about this injustice. For some reason, our so called sincere ingenuous media have never really brought forward these sensitive issues to eyes of our society and they just make sure that all their heads are filled with junk news and incorrigible soaps.

             Now, You and everyone in twitter know that this conflict happened a year ago. You have a better social stance and financial stature than all these people put together. If this issue has really put you through so much of misery, Why act now?? Why didn’t you bring this forward when it was all fresh and hot? What is the ulterior motive behind this?? You have used angry, hostile remarks against all these people; there has been threatening phone calls from your side to these people. Yet you are the victim here.... It doesn’t tally at all. You said something and they said something and you said something back and it went on and ended by itself... Why stir the commotion now???

            I am not trying to take sides here. You were made fun of, I agree. They created a tag to rag you. But girl, these are the very same people, who sang #oppari for one other. They are the first to make fun of one other. That is the whole nature & essence of the twitter. If you think that you were beyond this, you just ignore them as you already did and get on with your life. But suddenly posing you as the sole sufferer after over a year and putting all these people’s very livelihood in jeopardy, sounds very vindictive and cheap, below the belt act for anyone.

            So let’s rewind!!! You have had stress from such remarks by these guys, so you decided to wipe out their reputations and jobs and social stance... Your stress = their lives. Don’t you think you have blown it out of proportion? Oh is it because, you can!!! Is that why? You have the back up to support you and whatever you say become the truth. SO this makes me think that this whole complaint has been well planned and presented to take these men down.

 If it is really about seeking justice, if that is the case, what about all the insensitive crude remarks you have made about these issues and the people who rambled to you because they cared about the very same. So this just brings us back to the era, where you can say whatever you want and get away with it but just want to keep the other side repressed. How is this justice, in any standard???

            If I were in your position, I would have tried better to understand in depth, what I am giving my comments and opinions about before making my point. Better yet, not comment about things that are out of one’s depth, prior to stirring events like this. I hope you have the soul satisfaction of destroying few people who dared to ask you back about the right questions. Remember, Their slangs and the way they formulated the questions & remarks would have been offish for your standard, but the questions were truthful. Hope you can look back into what you said and reflect upon yourself. Oh wait a minute!!! You cannot reflect upon what you have said coz you haven’t left your so called tweets on there!!! You clever girl!!!

             Anyhow, Hope you can sleep finally now that you have brought justice to the world because all the crude buggers are beyond the bars, lost their jobs, reputations and their families will ever suffer for their bread & butter and not to mention been tainted forever for a silly thing like standing up to what they really believed in something true and respectful. You can go ahead with your perfect life and your double standards... Wishing you all the very best!!!
