Hey, hey, we’re back again with a new edition of Incredible India, those only in India blood-curdling stories.

* It’s no secret that India’s policemen are notoriously corrupt scoundrels, rapists, thieves, encounter specialists a.k.a murderers and big-time crooks.

In the past, some Indian policemen were even known to pour acid into the eyes of arrested youths and then poke a needle in the eye to make sure the victims were blinded (remember the Bhagalpur blindings?).

But some Indian cops have now taken their sadistic acts to a whole new bizarre level.

You see they have gotten into the bobbitizing business. A bunch of criminal cops were recently sentenced to jail by India’s Supreme Court for cutting off the penis of an innocent man with a barber’s razor for allegedly having an affair with the wife of a cop’s relative.

The criminals a.k.a policemen were let off by a lower court.

Here’s an excerpt from an Indian newspaper on the incident:

The brutality of the case, in which cops of the Sadar police station in Rajasthan’s Barmer district chopped off the penis of an innocent man for allegedly being in an illicit relationship with the wife of a cop’s relative, angered the Bench comprising Justices Markandey Katju and T S Thakur. Some uniformed personnel are still suffering from a “colonial mindset”, said the judges, seen to be a reference to the cops’ apparent certainty that they could get away with the savagery.

The main accused, constable Kishore Singh, who is said to have used a barber’s razor to chop off the organ of the victim in 1994, got the maximum punishment — five years in jail and a fine of Rs 50,000. ASI Sumer Dan, who had caught hold of the victim was sentenced to three years in jail and asked to pay a fine of Rs 50,000. SHO Sohan Singh, in whose presence the crime happened inside the police station, was sent to jail for six months and fined Rs 10,000. The fine amount would be paid to the victim as compensation, the SC directed.

Folks, the next time you makes eyes at a pretty girl in India make sure she’s not the wife, sister, daughter or friend of a cop’s relative if you want to keep your dick. Continue reading »

Fasten your seat-belts, folks.

Your favorite vigilante hero Batman is coming.

Again.

As in The Dark Knight Rises.

Yes, the third installment in the popular Batman series is scheduled to hit the screens July 20, 2012.

As with the earlier Batman films, this one too will be directed by Christopher Nolan.

Apparently, the movie will not, not be in 3D.

Good.

We’re not great fans of 3D.

Often the gee whiz effects of 3D mask the absence of a solid, gripping story like all those song-dance sequences in our Bollywood and Kollywood movies in Iceland, Peru, Namibia, Switzerland et al are intended to hide the lack of a story.

Hundreds of millions of dollars seems destined to go down the drain in the great Table rush of 2010 and 2011.

It seems every little digital media twit has got his knickers/her panties wet over the Tablet phenomenon.

We can’t scour over a publication without reading another gushing, drooling piece on these cool new Tablets.

Blame it all on the Apple iPad.

Ever since Steve Jobs launched the iPad in late March 2010 and the device gained some traction, there’s been no end to the hype about these consumer electronics devices.

With few exceptions like the HP Slate 500, most Tablets are targeted at the consumer entertainment market.

Often, these tablets (iPad) also double as e-book readers. Some like the Dell even include a phone. But who buys a Dell phone. Really, who?

Here are the major Tablet vendors:

Will the Tablets Fly?
No.

Despite all the hype by the digital media twits and the journalists (triggered largely by the iPad’s initial success) we expect to see a bloodbath in the Tablet segment. Continue reading »
