Re: The Police - once again

Given the force's proclivity towards bribery and playing the political footsie, does anybody think the current crop can EVER revert back to the original reason for them being in existence in the first place? Even if their payscales/benefits are improved? <P>Can any kindly soul please educate me on t...

Sachin:<P>I fully agree with Nikhil in that, unless the police forces of the states are brought under the Governor's control, it is difficult to see an efficient police force in India.

Re: Census India - 2001

This rise in the population sounds very scary to me. Forget the %age statistics, since the landmass is a static absolute measure, the focus should be on absolute number so far as population is concerned. Going at this rate, can the land support this population? What is the cut-off population level? ...

Re: Police Affairs in India

It would be a good idea to re-educate the police force as to who really are its employer, who really fund their paychecks. From the attitude of the force, it is quite apparent that they mistake the ruling political bosses as their employers and masters, and that the public is, shall we say, an occup...

Re: Police Affairs in India

All over India one sees policemen squatting in <I>chowks</I> and tea stalls wearing a bored look on their faces, almost in a state of transcendental meditation, mind far away from the job on hand of keeping an eye out for trouble and trouble-makers. A typical scene would be something like this – a p...
