the whistle blower

In Memoriam ...
Satyendra was an honest and upright engineer working on the Golden Quadrilateral Highway project. Outraged by the corruption he encountered, he took on the construction mafia pulling up contractors for shoddy work and notifying superiors. Frustrated with inaction, he finally wrote to the Prime Minister urging action. Requesting confidentiality, he detailed the "loot of public money" and "poor implementation".

The letter
was forwarded down the bureaucratic chain. Dubeyji, as his IIT mates fondly called him, received numerous threats from those he blew the whistle on. A chain of events, currently being investigated by the CBI, led to Dubeyji's murder in the early hours of November 27, 2003 in Gaya.

The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn`t mean that God doesn`t love heterosexuals. It`s just that they need more supervision.
