Superpower for the 21st century - 2

1) near Ranchi in the eastern state of Bihar in India, an employer beheads worker for not milking cows

2) Amit Varma's post enlightens us about a MSNBC/Reuters report that in nearby
Patna (also in Bihar),

...villagers at a wedding decided the groom had arrived too drunk to get married, and so the bride married the groom’s more sober brother instead...

making even Scott Adams has some fun at India's expense :)

3) and last but not least...Amit Varma also blogs about the sad story of Sohrabuddin's wife Kauser Bi, who was raped and murdered after an encounter-killing of Shorabuddin, an alleged terrorist. What more would you expect in Modi's Gujrat! Agree with Amit when he wrote earlier about the scary prospect that Modi could be India's PM if BJP ever come back to power! This
should be a matter of great consternation and shame for all secular Indians!
