On The Loss of A Young Life

In the memory of Manjunath Shanmugam, who gave up his life in line of duty…

We need to ensure that the sacrifice doesn’t go waste.
We need to ensure that his name is never forgotten.
We need to ensure that the perpetrators of this heinous crime are brought to justice.
We need to ensure that incidents like this are never repeated.

So I request all my readers to visit the site set up in memory of the hero by his friends (

I also request all of you to please sign the Petition to the Prime Minister at It may/may not result in anything, but the effort is still important. If nothing else, it will help bring some pressure on the government, and focus media attention on the politician-criminal nexus!

Join the good fight!
