Bootleggers and alcoholic who raise hell at home has to be distinguished from social drinking and punishment should be discriminatory.

Recent raids in Farm House party in Vadodara raised lots of rancor and  publicity
Ashok’s comments in your column – that social  drinking  has to be distinguished from abusers of habitual drinking (more in poor) – is appropriate.

In my view the crime is committed in eyes of law, the threat of jail punishment is too harsh. Bootleggers and alcoholic who raise hell at home has to be distinguished from social drinking and punishment should be discriminatory.  

I my opinion, if the perpetrator of wrong doing in the eyes of law, admits the judge should offer him two choices

1 Fine + commuted jail ( if applicable )

2 Fine and 100 hrs of community service. ( 4-6 hrs a week )

This will save lots of time of judiciary lengthy  time of appeals – lawyers expenses – and so on.

In the community service too, there should be choices offered.

The community service can easily monitored by video etc and weekly reporting.

Community service could also be additional part of CSR in industry.

Currently our Prime Minister has a launched so many programs  such as

Swachha Bharat  – in an adopted village

  • Girl education
  • e Wallet training to hawkers and small consumers in village or their own industry 
  • Library and cultivating and monitoring reading habit in school going children.
  • Solar energy use in street and house 
  • Sponsoring bright children for further education  
  • Adopting and monitoring 100 / 200 children for malnutrition 
  • De-addiction of tobacco chewers  ( my personal agenda )
  • Media on their part should receive reports and photographs of such activity and appropriately publicize.

    Frankly I would appeal Chief Justice ( it will save their time and accumulation of back logs ) and our prime minister  ( it will help in his programs ) to actively consider 

    May be some persons may like to continue beyond his term.

    I know one of the involved person in his younger days had his son married simply and marriage expense saved was given to appropriate charity
