Day 294

And the verdict is out. The wait of 60+ years have been over. Atleast, as of now. In a nutshell, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court on Thursday delivered a verdict that has favoured the Hindu contention that Lord Ram's birthplace existed at the same place where his statue was discovered more than 60 years ago.
The bench decided to divide the disputed 2.7 acres of land into three parts, with each of the three parties to the suit getting a part of it.
Hindus, the Sunni Waqf Board and the Nirmohi Akhara, will each get one part of the disputed land.
The ownership of the disputed land has been divided as follows: (1) Ram Lala, the birthplace of Lord Ram, given to Lord Ram (2) Sita Rasoi (The kitchen of Sita) and Ram Chabootra(The Pigeon house of Lord Ram) to Nirmohi Akhara and (3) The remaining part to be given to the Sunni Waqf Board.

The entire judgment is given here --

Its quite likely that in the history of our Legal System, it is possibly, the first time that the honorable court has decided to uphold logic and legal matters over instinctive and perhaps a more rational decision. Because, there was no scientific or Legal way to prove the existence of Lord Ram. However, how can one question the faith of 1.5 billion Hindus worldwide ? (Give or take a few million).
In the current scenario, it must be said, that the verdict by the honorable court was the most fair one and totally in the interest of the nation. Its security and its well being.
The litigant and the defendant have all the right to challenge the verdict and approach the Supreme Court of India. But then, wait for another 60 more years to get the final verdict.
And life moves on. I am eagerly waiting for the day to end tomorrow. After work, will be meeting the fat guy and for the first time, i will be seeing a Tamil Movie in a theatre - Come on..Its Rajni Sir after all. Where is the entertainment quotient of watching a dubbed hindi film when you can enjoy the charisma of Rajni Sir on the screen in Tamil (Who cares whether you understand the language or not ?).
Good night all of you.
